Obama's Fantasy World
I'm so disappointed in Obama right now. He's a brilliant bullshitter -- that's all I see. But this will all work out fine. Hillary will win the nom. I think she'll be President. And sometime in the future -- assuming we have a future in light of Pakistan -- perhaps one day Obama will fit the bill.
I won't go on at length, but Obama's campaign is insulting. All his arguments are bullshit. "He was against the war." So was I, you can read it in my blog. That doesn't mean I can be President.
"Cheney/Rumsfeld had experience, look at them." The problem is President Bush! Not Cheney/Rumsfeld.
The big difference in the Bush Jr. II fiasco from the Reagan-Bush years is the absence of James Baker, Reagan's Chief of Staff and the first Bush's State Secretary. Iraq would not have happened if Baker was in there. And Baker didn't join the Administration because he couldn't work with Bush. Baker also advised Colin Powell not to take the job of State Secretary if he didn't have a relationship with Bush equal to Cheney's and Rumsfeld's -- which Powell didn't.
So the problem is not these two 'experienced' psychopaths who were reined in by Ford and Bush 41. The problem is a novice President who can't handle his team of advisors -- exactly what we would get with Obama. Obama isn't Bush Lite, he's Bush Left.
And all this 'Different Kind of Politics' bullshit. Please, save it.
It's too bad Obama chose to run for President too soon so he has to run on bullshit. Fantasy plus charisma don't cut it. After his stuttering meltdown under pressure on CNN, I had fun comparing Obama to Max Headroom -- that funny, all-talk brain-dead techno-glitch.
