  1. #1 Despite what some of the people I know say it will take decades or the US to regain the trust of our friends overseas, this is one of the worst things that Obama has done.

  2. The opinions of “people” I’m learning, are worthless. If they pay any attention at all, they believe what they’re told, what they’re conditioned to believe.

    It’s events that shape history. Events are slippery – results of an election, committment to a cause – they turn out to be nothing more than the results of exchange transactions between players in dark boardrooms.

  3. Familiar, sickening terms: If Obama were to hurt or to endanger sufficiently the real players, that would be a game-changer.

    Who are these “players”? I sure don’t know, but they know each other. They have relationships – not necessarily friendly – spanning more than 4 or 8 years. Way more.

    They would have to decide that this man was a clear & present danger. He could retire like Lyndon Johnson, Nixon, Gerald Ford, or the last Pope.

    And there’d be a cover-story at least as good as his birther-credentials.
    And the people be damned.
