O’Bama. Part Deux. (January 21, 2013)

. . .

A          “Cope not hope this go around.”

B          “Not as cold this time.  And a different climate than four years ago.”

A          “Sounds like he is moving from the right to the center.”

. . .

B          “Chuck Hagel is a great move.  The first enlisted man who actually saw combat as an NCO (“no chance officer”) and was not promoted to the officer corps now gets nominated to order and oversee the officers.”

A          “Amazing thing in America that those who go to war and reflect on the experience become Democrats.  Those who dodge the draft and never see combat become Republican chickenhawks.”

B          “Hagel was never a butter bar and now he is tasked with reducing the fat in the Defense budget.”

A          “The best place to start is with the Offense Department of the Department of Defense.  Hagel is the most qualified player to oversee that transition to a sustainable defense in a complex and dangerous world.”

. . .

B          “Jack Lew is a weak move.”

A          “William Black for Treasury would move us into the black.”

B          “The Owners will not allow O’Bama to make that selection.”

A          “Someone must start the process of downsizing too-big-to-fail banks so that they are the right size to succeed.”

B          “Financial reform may not be part of his legacy.”

. . .

A          “We must force him to address his increased use of drones.  If Bush had undertaken the current level of drone attacks on foreign soil and homes, he would have been leveled in some salons.”

B          “Now drones can fill the skies in America.  In the near future, there will be news reports of mid-air collisions between the ‘Fillmore County police drone’ and the ‘state troopers drone.’  Fly the friendly skies of United States of America.”

A          “I suspect that some opposition to gun control in some quarters may be supported by a scintilla of rationality.  A few individuals recognize that these violations of privacy are getting out of hand, so they want something in hand even if it is likely to be deadly, futile and counterproductive.”

B          “They are impinging on our fundamental right to sit in my back yard and scratch body parts without being scrutinized.”

. . .

A          “He has followed the nation’s emerging notions of gay rights and now is in lockstep with the public while the other legislature on Jenkins Hill – the Supreme Court – has elected to decide whether to take a step backward.”

B          “The Supreme Court Legislature is as partisan and divisive as the real Congress legislature.”

. . .

B          “And he mentioned climate change even though the climate changed in the scientific community many years ago.”

A          “His comments were not warmly received.”

. . .

A          “Immigration.”

. . .

B          “And the most important appointment of the last decade – Gary Locke – may just stay on the job for four more years.”
