There He Goes Again!

Barack Obama blunders again on the world stage – Telegraph Blogs

I guess the next generation of teleprompters will have phonetic spellings.

I love how the Obama haters pick out and pick on everything that he does no matter what it is, but as a fellow Bush hater we all did the same thing the whole time he was in office as well.

God forbid the president struggles to pronounce the name, Aung San Suu Kyi, wow, what a blunder!

Leave it to the haters of the Republic and its President, to cite a British sensationalist rag like The Telegraph.

I would like to hear your insight in to socialism. How did Obama create our dive in to socialist hell.

Medicare (you know, for old people) and most of them haven't paid in to the system for the services rendered. Why aren't you screaming on a soap box about that?! They are the biggest suckers of money in this country behind the military. Oh, don't get me wrong, I am not whatsoever suggesting either are sponges of resources, I am simply pointing out that your "socialism" comment is ridiculous. I can also guarantee that you have benefited from socialism in every way. Give me 5 minutes, 3 details about your life (age, number of kids/age of kids and marital status) and I will prove it. Care to prove me wrong?

Nope. I am not blaming our path to Socialism on Obama alone by any stretch. We've been pretty much headed that way since Roosevelt... And Medicare, as you point out, is as unsustainable today as "free" healthcare is...

Re: There He Goes Again!

Obama's second term effectively ends in October 2014 right before the midterm elections. After that it's all Presidential libraries, Medals of Freedom and carefully controlled events in the name of posterity. So anything you think he's going to do he's got about 22 months with which to do it. After that it's a long terminal glide path to the end. And while it may be that the Democrats will somehow take control of the lower house of Congress in 2014 it's unlikely which means that the elections will be largely irrelevant from a legislative perspective. I suppose there might be one more SC Justice he might name but history tells us that the leftist radicals and rightist radicals once appointed are all mostly moderates. So not much to look forward there. The economy will more or less limp and blunder along at this level of unemployment with slightly worse macro economics, slightly higher inflation or stagflation. The Chinese economy is poised to stall which is both good and bad for us. Meanwhile the EU seems intent on slow motion imploding.

I genuinely believe we are living in a post-leadership era. A period of weak bland leaders who are more caretakers than risk takers. First World countries and economies will dribble onward with little growth or sudden collapse. Brazil and Argentina are showing some strain. Mexico is by some measures practically a failed state - in the north of the country. Venezuela is probably going over a cliff with the death of il Duce Maximum Leader Chavez and there's nothing like screaming Yaqui Invasion! to start shooting at whomever to distract the dirty mobs. The Arab Spring is going to conclude with Biblical finality in Egypt where you will see famines and social calamity not seen since China's Great Leap Forward, taking down most of the Maghreb in collateral damage. Syria will peter out like Bosnia replete with smaller scale genocides. Pakistan will break apart and the civil unrest and war will be spectacular.

Other than that things will be fine.

Dog,

What about if the dollar is no longer the reserve currency in the world?

Isn't that when the game of musical chairs stops?
