Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children. ~ Ancient American Indian Proverb
Lots of what Stewart says is dead-on political satire, It's funny. And that's the point. Stewart is so bright and clever!
But he's not a heavyweight intellectually; he's an entertainer, and it's sad, that there are folks who pose as serious thinkers who don't see beyond the superficialities of his wit.
These are the same citizens who see the President as the Entertainer-in-chief. Chief of the "cool kids" and available to late-night talk-show hosts and other pop-cultural media opportunities while denying access to the White House press corps.
Do I think the "public-access" servants and "useful idiots" will speak up in a meaningful way, as irritated as they are becoming? No. They serve a "greater cause." But I'd like to see my President engaged and more transparent about what matters. "Letterman" doesn't.
Come on, the recession ended in July of 2009 and we still haven't recovered ! The unemployment rate is as high as the day Obama entered the White House.
The day Obama took the oath as POTUS there was a Navy Carrier Strike Group in the Mediterranean and also a Navy Amphibious Ready Group in the Mediterranean with a Marine Expeditionary Unit aboard who are Special Operations Capable. Forty five months later neither was on station as they were suppose to have been. Of the last 12 Presidents, Obama was the only Commander and Chief who has failed to make sure that there was always a Navy CBG/CSG and a BLT/MEU in the Mediterranean 24/7 to quickly respond to exactly the type of emergency that happened in Benghazi on 9-11-12. Incompetency of the Cn'C. Most of the worlds nations would call it treason.
Apache I reply to your post about Charlie Wilson and yet I receive no reply from you about hekmatyer or Ahmed shah Massoud? You wound me! "Sarcasm"
Get a grip people ... Benghazi was an attack on Americans not a CT by the Obama admin. Sure ask questions, investigate if processes could be taken to better protect Americans serving in some of the most dangerous parts of the world.
Not ignoring you, just thought we were drifting off topic.
But the Obama administration admits there were mistakes made, but at he same time said no one made any mistakes. I have a problem with that response.
