Mr. Matthews speaks well, which I'm surprised to see from that end of the political spectrum. President Harry S. Truman famously had a sign on his
desk stating, "The Buck Stops Here". Evidently, that doesn't hold true anymore.
In Obama, I see a man who seems to think he's above it all, living in some rarified dream land where he can just airily dismiss things with a wave of
his hand. I sometimes wonder if he's literally losing his mind. He's clearly in over his head. Following this administration is like watching a slow
motion train wreck. It's horrifying, but you can't take your eyes off of it.
Now, before anyone assumes I'm some right-wing Republican simply having a knee jerk reaction, I'm not. I'm actually an independent who describes
himself as a left leaning moderate, and I voted for the guy
, to my regret, although I didn't much care for Romney/Ryan, either. I'm not afraid
to admit when I'm wrong, my mind doesn't work like that, although I have to kick my ego out of the way.
That being said, I'm no fan of George Bush, either, considering him a buffoon. I guess we're still looking for those famous WMDs, Sean Hannity
notwithstanding. If we found half a bottle of bleach and a mousetrap, I suppose he'd be on his radio show shouting, "Chemical weapons-and a
detonator!". I'm beholden to no political party, and disliking both the far-left and the far-right means everybody's ticked at me.
You should hear my discussions with some of my relatives, who are all over the place politically. Oh, well, I guess it livens up my life. It's lonely
in the middle.
