When I was a boy I was told that anybody could become President. Now I’m beginning to believe it. Clarence Darrow
Quin Hillyer has a summary of the state of affairs from a foreign policy perspective. As you might imagine, things are not good. Read the article to see just how dangerous the world has become.
The following passage will whet your appetite:
Thank goodness we are the United States of America: We’ve survived bad presidents before, and we will again. In the interim, though, Obama seems to be putting to severe test the purported Otto von Bismarck remark that “God watches over children, fools, and the United States of America.” When it is the fool who is leading the USA, God is required to do double duty.
At some point the national body becomes so weakened that it no longer is able to throw off bad presidents. If the US has not already reached such a point, it is too close to be cavalier regarding our chances of surviving the current fool.
