#1 I know many of the 'burgers here have speculated that teh 0ne would be feckless enough to order a strike just to get votes.

Articles like this are not out of the realm of possibility for someone as morally bankrupt as Obama.

#2 The problem I have with all this "strike" Libya, and/or Iran and the "Circle the Wagons" to rally around our President: In this anti-war feelings within our American populace now... I'm just not understanding this -- this is the same populace that is to rally around Obama because he lobs a few missiles, but yet, when we have an American Ambassador for the first time since 1979, and three other Americans murdered
... there is just no "Rally Around the Flag" coming out.

#3 A full tilt military strike would alienate too much of B-HO's base. It would also require decision-making, something he is not known for. He might drone-zap a few guys, but that won't win him any points from anyone who wasn't already in the bag. Some nice opportunities for grand speechifying though.

The Romney surge isn't, as it looks once again like Mittens is having great difficulties breaking out absolutely positively categorically undeniably ...@etc. decisively from the statistical MOE.

#5 I'm thinking scale here. A few missiles here, a drone zap there. It isn't enough. He'd have to launch something on the scale of Kosovo, and we'd see that coming.

#6 My take is that there will be a January (non-)surprise, when 0bama and the Demoncrats buy into their own lies and refuse to yield the government to The Forces Of Evil in the face of an election-that-they-could-not-steal.

#7 Then again even if a righteous retaliation were to occur people would view it with great cynicism and seen by many if not all as a political ploy and work against the Won.

#8 Regarding #6.

We'd all better pray this does not happen.

#9 The Romney surge isn't, as it looks once again like Mittens is having great difficulties breaking out absolutely positively categorically undeniably ...@etc. decisively from the statistical MOE.

Have serious doubts about that being the case. Most poll internals seem to have a larger, often significantly larger, Democrat turnout advantage than in '08 when Obama was "The One" running against a hapless McCain.

#10 It will be revealed that Obama was really born in Ohio of white coal mining parents who loved him dearly but could not afford to treat his very rare skin disorder.

#11 Shipman, you have a truly convoluted mind. ;-)

#12 Dang, Ship, that's inspired! :-D

#13 That is inspired. Sort of like the role Steve Martin played in the "Jerk"--the only white son of black sharecroppers.

#17 I shall ride around the walls of the 'burg in my Triumph.

Is it red? A triumphal Triumph ought to be red, of at all possible...
