Obama looks for wiggle room

September 13, 2013 

I had such a nice feeling on 9/11. I read the BND and thought: Hey, there is ol' empty suit on the front page trying to explain why we were not going to bomb Syria.

I don't think he realizes what a blunder he made (not his first). Our congressmen aren't the idiots President Obama thought they were, even if the majority are Republicans.

I don't think the national prime-time TV announcement was a fluke. History would have been made on 9/11 and Obama's name would have lived on forever (God forbid), Obama saves Syria from bombing the United States on 9/11. The news media would have eaten that up alive.

I do believe Obama thinks he is chief of the NATO police. We have to save the world from other dictators. Another thought that crossed my mind was, it's getting time to bring our boys home from Afghanistan and what are we going to do with all of them looking for jobs? Obama can't create that many government jobs unless he signs them up for insurance salesmen (Obamacare).

With all the turmoil in the world today, I am still grateful to God for being born in the good ol' USA some 86 years ago.
