#1 Someday, Obama may look back on all of this and realize that the "Good Days" were when he was running for the presidency, not the days he spent running the presidency. Ther can be no doubt now that he had swallowed whole the complete leftist take on things. The indigestion is only just begun.

#3 government, which Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said last month is "plagued by limited capacity and widespread corruption
Describes the Demos in WH and Congress. If anybody can recognize "limited capacity and widespread corruption." It would be the Demos.
#4 Holbrooke sums up this administration in total with his the administration was "troubled and confused"
Where can I move that makes buying a gun easy? I'm thinking that one might become necessary in the next few years.

#6 Anyone ever see the Robert Redford flick "The Candidate"? Last line of the movie: after winning the election Redford, contemplative in the back of his limo, wistfully asks "What do we do NOW?"
Like Redford's character, President Affirmative-action, Carter II: the Obamination has NO idea.

Vermont and Alaska are the two best states for gun owners.
I live in Vermont. Nuts in Vermont are concentrated in three cities, the rest of the state is relatively sane (unless you count the fact that we live in a damned cold state with more dirt roads than paved roads, more cows than people, more ..., well you get the idea.)
Don't even get me started on the senators and the rep.

#9 Whiskey Mike,
I'll be up to see you in about a year. I currently reside in the "Peoples (ack spit) Republic" to your south. Vermont is definitely acceptable to my better half.
Summered up there when I was a little kid (damn that's a loooooong time ago). The cold I can deal with but I wish you could flatten some of those hills I prefer wide open spaces ;^)

#10 You never, ever, EVER describe your own government's position as "troubled and confused" in a diplomatic context - ESPECIALLY if that accurately describes the situation in the head offices. Holbrooke just demonstrated his incompetence. He needs to be fired right now. It's not as if he was a regional specialist. He made his bones in the Balkans, for the love of Christ!
I can't believe I was mooting him for Sec'y of State four months ago. Boy, was *I* fooled.
