"It's 3 AM, the phone is ringing..."


Remember "Ready to rule on Day One?" Surveying the scene at the Oval office, Don Surber notes "There is nobody there."

Barack Obama is too busy posing for magazine covers to actually do the job to which he was elected. There is a price to be paid when a president throws a party every other night, weekends in Chicago or Camp David and poses for magazine cover after magazine cover. After 51 days in office, Barack Obama has appointed only 73 people to 1,200 jobs that require Senate confirmation.
That price might be paid at 3 AM

Ring.... ring.... ring.... ring... ring...

Let's not forget that on Wednesday nights at the White House there IS somebody home: the Obamas are now hosting their weekly 'culture and chablis' hoe-downs. It's especially nice for them to bond with rap, movie, television and basketball stars. And they're having more fun than a barrel of monkeys cause it often goes on till the wee hours.

I hate to say it, but I suspect that Obama in the White House says to our enemies around the world what blood in the water says to sharks. And our enemies around the world are paying a heck of a lot more attention to his (and his associates') goofs and gaffes than most Americans are (thanks to MSM's partisan bias), and they're learning a lot. America, I fear, is going to eventually learn what it means to have a completely unqualified and wholly unprepared man as President; after which, I fear, the world will learn just how much it owed to the Pax Americana. True, I may fear too much; then again, maybe not.

Is it just me or do I detect a Bozo in that mushroom cloud?

But the real question is , would a Hillary administration have its act any more together?

Snarky answer: Heck, if Joe the Plumber had been elected president, his administration would have its act more together! Whose wouldn't?

Unsnarky answer: Probably yes, but far from certainly so.

Good pick up, Dan. I'd missed the Bozo the first pass.

Sorry, couldn't resist. ;-)

The face of Bozo the Clown appearing within the mushroom cloud is just one of many nightmares I might be having in the months and years to come.

The song "Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves" keeps strumming through my head.

I believe this is going to be a long four years.
