Continuing with today’s golf theme:
Maybe he’s just so TIRED from all the work of Presidentin’:
Here at RSW we will be keeping a running count of how many rounds of golf the Bamster plays before the BP oil crisis is solved. Maybe Barry thinks that since he can’t put one in the hole, he might luck out and get a hole-in-one.
It’s all about the O.
And can someone PLEASE get the man some decent lime-green Sansabelt golf slacks? The board shorts are SO un-Presidential.
Thanks to Confederate Yankee, via Ace.
It has occurred to me that there are four types of government administrations:
1. Moral and Competent
2. Corrupt and Competent
3. Moral and Incompetent
4. Corrupt and Incompetent
I would place the Reagan Administration in category 1: moral because it opposed communism and believed in increasing Americans’ personal and financial freedoms; and competent because it actually accomplished its goals of rolling back communismworldwide and vastly expanding economic activity through tax cuts.
I would place the Nixon Administration in category 2: corrupt because of Watergate and Nixon’s paranoia/enemies list; and competent because it actually brought an end to the the Vietnam War by forcing North Vietnam to the negotiating table on the strength of massive military strikes.
I would place the Carter Administration in category 3: moral (in a certain sense) because Carter – although preachy and self-righteous – seemed to genuinely desire the expansion of peace in the world, and was not overtly mired in any major scandals; and incompetent because, well, where do you start? Iran hostages/growth of Muslim terrorism, Soviet expansionism, “stagflation,” sky-high interest rates, gas lines …
As for category 4, as the line goes from “Highlander”: “There can be only one.”
Yeah, I’m a day late and a dollar short, but the good stuff always comes from Ace.
