    The Obama administration will prove to be a disaster on foreign policy. So far their direction seems to be to turn their back on our long term allies and reach out to China, Russia and Iran. This is "Carter Crap" and America will forever be weakened if weakness is our new creed.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    I love Charlie Daniel's response to all of this. He is cracking me up



    ...Do these people actually think that by calling something by a kinder gentler name they can make it less dangerous? This is downright stupid. Yes, I said it. It's stupid...

    Well Mr. Obama, I might have missed it but I haven't heard you mention 9/11 once, and just in case you've forgotten these noble enemy comba… sorry, "foreign mischief-making citizens", -or whatever you end up calling them- of yours murdered over 3000 of our citizens in three different locations on American soil and your milksop definitions of these pus ball killers is just not good enough for me.

    I have some suggestions for your vocabulary:

    Rattlesnake - triangle-headed surface crawler

    Black Widow Spider - red dotted black circle

    Shark - fish with a toothy smile

    Grizzly Bear - big cuddly fuzzball

    Dynamite - stringed red stick

    Ted Bundy - homo sapien with a slight attitude

    Jeffrey Dahmer - peculiarly-appetited loner


    Charlie Daniels - 2009 Soapbox Archives



    The whole thing is worth a read.
    Reminds me, it's time for our exterminator's quarterly visit. We've had a problem with red dotted black circles

    I noticed that also. Seems like there is a new Operation Chaos in town.

    He's a narcissistic people-pleaser--he's saying what he thinks will make people happy today, with no care for tomorrow.

    That said....

    I don't give a rat's ass what he calls things so long as the objective is to kill the terrorists overseas rather than on American soil. If we're killing terrorists over there and not over here, it's all good. If we're not killing terrorists, then we need to get on with it.

    My concern is not that he's changing the name, but that's he's changing the objective; it would suck to think he intends to let terrorists continue breathing.
