Somehow, I got on the White House mailing list. How this happened, I have no idea. Maybe it was all those emails to Congress.org when during the last congressional term, I don't know. But the email is from David Axelrod, the "Senior Advisor" to Dear Leader.
What Mr. Axelrod wants me to do is watch "Dear Leader" pander to a constituency that doesn't have a thing to do with American politics. I heard excerpts from this speech today on the radio, and I can say unequivocally, I was underwhelmed.
One caller to a radio program I listened to today (and no, it was Limbaugh) wondered just why it is, that Iran can have nuclear power, but we here in the US of A can't. As I listened to these excerpts, I could only think to myself "How is it this guy can make all of these promises to all these people, yet we here in this country can't do anything close to what he wants the rest of world to be able to do?"
I have a hard time with anyone who goes around selling American Exceptionalism done the toilet like yesterday's spoiled milk. I didn't like it when Nazi Pelosi did it, I didn't like it when Slick Willy Clinton or his wife did it, and damn sure didn't like it when Jon Karee (sorry, I couldn't resist the dig on folks who joined the military) did it. So why should I suddenly be all hunky-dory with the new president do it?
Mark my words, this will be in our future if we do nothing to stop what is going on before our very eyes.
