The Obama Collapse

Hey Hugh, While I'm a pretty conservative guy, I'm not hung up on name-calling or labeling, but it is effective now and then. It bothers me not that she didn't bite - what is far more important is the understanding of right and wrong and strategy to develop a means for an end. Yet, while I don't always agree with Putin, I find myself agreeing with him more than my own president, who I will label as "evil". As for Assad, while he may be an evil fellow, it is far more important to understand his geo-political effectiveness as a buffer between the west and the Jihad. This, Jimmy Carter nor Obama nor seemingly anyone on the left in America understands. While I do believe that the U.S. needs to stand for freedom and liberty, we can ill afford to get involved with everyone's fracases and most involvement frankly will result in failures to promote democracy in the sense of any immediate survival, for as Jefferson and other Founding Fathers noted, it requires education to sustain democracy. Iran, Egypt, Iraq and others are perfect examples. Better to have the tyrant we know than the tyrants of a religious jihad that lay in waiting to cause even more destruction and instability. Working slowly on business and thus economic success, which brings on education to prepare these people for the future makes far more sense then funding revolutions which will simply result in an even greater repression under religious totalitarianism. That being said, certainly we agree on the points of "The Obama Collapse", which is due to an utter lack of understanding economics, foreign policy or much or anything.
Mike, in general I like your stuff very much, but seriously, we're at war with the left and you're this bent out of shape with the severe sarcasm of Ann Coulter? Give me a break. All's fair in love and war, even Ann Coulter's sarcasm…which of course is not our problem. (But perhaps I'm missing your reverse sarcasm?) We all know Hillary is a disaster, but white-flag waving fellows like McCain have been serious failures for the GOP and for America. I have not given up on Ann Coulter, nor a few harmless epithets. Enough already, let's move on to the serious discussions you are known for.

Acting Like a Founder

Most excellent point and my thought exactly. I favor impeachment of many in this administration and the judiciary and even Congress after the GOP takes the Senate in late 2014.
Seems to me you're a little out of line here and might actually be the real bigot.
"Those who go into education in general, are the ones who score lowest on their college entrance exams." (Thomas Sowell) This is pretty much on par with most government workers. Now who's conning who here? :) This pattern of anti-Americanism from any government worker is so obvious now, it reminds me that not only does a skunk have white stripes, but it often smells as well...
Hmmm… I would be careful about blanket statements such as your first. It depends greatly on whose Think Tank one is speaking and of course, the analyst. For example I find that conservative think tanks are most often correct and liberal ones are most often incorrect. Now why do you suppose that is? And I am wondering of course if you are instructing the rest of us NOT to put much faith in Think Tanks or if you left off the noun, "I". I for one, put a lot of faith in the conservative ones because I find them to be right most of the time. And usually, the scholars, experts, Ph.D.'s and authors have a bit more credibility on the subject than I…although not always:) And love your last line. I have friends in France who no longer like Paris among other things about France…for the most part because it ain't French anymore. Funny how we learn and follow the French and they, us. Our lives seem intertwined in a Greek tragedy somehow. Vive la France.
