    Obama's experience as a community organizer just doesn't translate to the world stage quite like he had hoped, apparently. I will just be very glad when his term is up. But, I am also apprehensive about who might be the next president. I can think of several that I definitely do NOT want!

    Bush wanted to forcefully impose Jeffersonian democracy in Iraq. Obama wanted to use eloquent rhetoric with the goal of "Can't we all just get along?" Both were abject failures.

    For all his great work in the Middle East, perhaps Obama should be awarded a Nobel Peace Prize!
