    Sometimes leadership is getting others to take the lead. In fact, in almost every walk of life where leadership is a factor, this is most often the best kind of leadership. I realize this is a subtlety that will be lost on most mouth frothing right wingers, but it is nevertheless, true.

    And this kind of leadership takes courage. It means letting go of what we think we can control, and that is scary. I wouldn't call it "balls" exactly, because, well... That usually refers in my mind to people who THINK they are being courageous, when they are actually just taking I'll considered actions that LOOK courageous.
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    BHO takes this to the extreme.

    When exactly will his work be done? What exactly is his aim in regards to the Libya situation? No need to answer, as it could only be your opinion and, as the saying goes, everyone has one.

    So you want a leader that does things in secret and the citizens never find out about it.

    You must love the Patriot Act.

    How about the secret interegation sites and the methods employed? You think those were a good idea and should have been kept secret?


    Thanks for your opinion.
    Did I give an opinion? I thought I had only asked questions. I don't care enough to go back to check so would you would kindly look it up,

    Great! So the UN action amounts to "Ready...set...GO!...Umm...GO! come on guys...GO. Uh..Go? Please?"

    Anyone wonder where the 'rebels' are getting these things?
