There is an ancient Arab folk tale about a servant who went to the marketplace to shop and saw Death. He hurried back to his master and warned him of Death. The Master became frightened and fled to safety in the town of Samarra. The servant returned to the marketplace and told Death he had ben unfair because he frightened the master. Death replied: “I did not wish to frighten your master, I am just passing through, I have an appointment in Samarra.” President Obama addressed the nation and informed Americans that 10,000 soldiers will be leaving Afghanistan in December of this year and 23,000 more by the summer of 2012. This means about 63,000 soldiers will still be in combat in the fall of 2012. The bad news is that he lacks a plan to draw down forces from Afghanistan, the good news is that Obama has finally brought Democrats and Republicans together–everyone –but Obama– wants a quicker withdrawal.
In January, 2009, Obama ignored the issue of jobs and went ahead with a health plan that divided the nation, rather than a job program that would have united the nation. Of course, health care is needed, of course, the government should run health care programs. But, Barack Obama does not listen to people, he listens to his small coterie of friends. He has become the most incompetent president in recent history. The object of politics is to gather support for ideas, it is not to push ideas opposed by the vast majority of citizens. Since this is a democracy, the end result of such stupid politics is to strengthen idiots in the Republican party because Obama makes their nutty ideas come across as sane.
REPUBLICANS ARE WRONG. HE WAS NOT BORN IN AFRICA. HE WAS BORN ON ANOTHER PLANET!
