Good afternoon, my fellow legitimate Americans. Your friendly neighborhood Spider Dan reporting from the scorched Texas Hill Country. We need rain and need it today. Maybe the buffoons in Hopey-Dopey's camp will conjure up a magical spell and we'll get the jet stream to allow Gulf moisture to hose down our well baked countryside. Other than that, being here is pure delight.

Let's begin with this earth shaking revelation: Bill Clinton did good. No, that's not a typo. The former president -- disbarred, disgraced, and proven to be one of the worst until America got stoned and punked the world with Hopey-Dopey -- pulled off a magnificent political coup. Travelling to North Korea, Clinton secured the release of two American idiots trying to play big time investigative journalist. While all the details may have been hammered out before his arrival in Pyongyang, Clinton did what few could: used his influence to get those women out before they suffered a terrible fate at the hands of the North Koreans. Sure, two ditzy women flirted with disaster and got tangled up in a classic case of political theatre. Had anyone at Algore's "TV" network taken time to call me, I would have quickly informed those involved in the planning of this stunt to religiously avoid contact with North Korean authorities. A no-brainer, you say?

Apparently not.

Regardless of the failure to adequately brief those women and the feckless response from Algore himself, Clinton stepped up and took the time to fly to North Korea, leaving only with those two ladies in tow. I'll leave it up to each of you to decide how the duration of the flight back to Calfornia might have been spent, but even if those ladies were bathed in Clinton's joy juice somewhere over the Pacific, they're home and safe. Thank you, Mr. Clinton. Now, disappear until some other tinpot dictator needs your reinforcement.

I'm not one for "I told you so". But, this is too much to bear. For everyone of you that voted for this imbecile impersonating the President of the United States, a question: how do your personal shortcomings rectify your decision to support this quack, knowing what you know today?

Seems the lunatics comprising the Democratic Party (and the few million independent practical jokesters pulling the lever for this idiot) had no idea how much damage they might do to the nation. There may have been some speculation about short term damage to the party, but it seems none of them realized this frat prank would contribute to the demise of the United States of America to the degree it has and will. The 2010 election looms as a seminal moment for the future of our great land -- failure to wipe the Democrats out of the picture hastens our national demise. Before you get twisted up in knots declaring that comment to be "over the top" or "partisan hysterics", review the legislative agenda and accomplishments. I will not chronicle them here -- doing so makes you lazy. Investigate the monumental failures this clown and his crew have become, then recognize how difficult and expensive it's going to be repealing or reversing this madness.

Hopey-Dopey must be completely marginalized and rendered to lame duck status. There can be no compromise, no deals, nothing that leaves this rank amateur a shred of political credibility. Nevada can take a huge step by tossing Harry Reid out with the rest of the garbage. Nevada, we're watching. Think the economy is tough on your once mighty tourism industry?

Re-elect that blithering idiot and Hell hath no fury. I have very dear friends doing the Lord's work in that beleaguered state and expect they will mobilize as never before to usher Reid into the septic tank of history. I will go to Reno or Vegas or whatever God-forsaken former nuclear test site to campaign against Reid -- knowing his ouster will inspire and motivate legitimate Americans to act accordingly in their own corners of this great land. I will not provide a penny or one ounce of breath trying to convince the galactic idiots in California to get rid of Pelosi, Boxer, or Feinstein. They deserve each other and the consequences they bring every Californian. It's a sad day when so many good folks suffer just to prop up liberal divas, but apparently, liberal divas walk in friendly company in California. We can only pray legitimate Americans rise up in the Golden State and reclaim that valuable land for the good of all Americans.

I am not holding my breath on that one.

As a cyber-Congressman from the State of Nevada I would like to propose some new energy initiative, designed to help the overwhelming majority of Americans who own cars powered by gasoline-combustion engines. Under my proposal, the government would make available funds to purchase fuel for needy/desirous Americans. Lesseee...let's do some math. About $2.75 a gallon for regular nowadays. Let's grant each American driver, two gallons of gas per day. With a lot of vehicles, a couple gallons isn't going to get you to the Grand Canyon for that next family vacation but it will allow about 30 miles of travel. Sufficient for puttering around town and a good many daily commutes. That's $5.50 per day, or $165.00 a month. That would allow payments to 330million Americans for gas for a month. Oh wait, there aren't that many Americans much less drivers, unless our estimates of illegal aliens with licenses is off, a distinct possibility.

Let's say that half those Americans drive. With my program, which we would strategically enact during the summer months to encourage driving, vacationing and most importantly to the economy, spending, we provide an immediate economic boost to both the travel and energy sectors. The only qualification for the funding would be providing proof of citizenship, no motor voter ID's accepted. This would disqualify the current President but hey, he can afford his own gas. Now let's call this program something spiffy, like Gas for Guzzlers, (I know, I know...unoriginal but no thanks are needed) Does anyone out there see a problem with this? How do you administer the program? Who decides who receives the checks? How do you ensure the checks are actually used for gas? Finally, if you are able to come up with answers to those questions, inevitably you'll need an entirely new gub'mint department to oversee the program. This of course will result in higher taxes to fund said department.

Legitimate Americans recognize that the latest economic offering from the Obama Administration, the so-called "Cash for Clunkers" is nothing more than another redistribution of American wealth. Certainly many Americans think they are getting a great deal, incentivized new cars to replace their older vehicles. The problem is that no matter how you slice it, not all American motorists are beneficiaries of this program yet all of them will pay taxes to the benefit of a few. The Administration promise of a much needed shot in the arm to the ailing auto industry may be correct, but whose industry? The latest reports show that only 45% of the vehicles purchased under this program are actually American made. So the American taxpayer is essentially subsidizing new car loans, the majority of which are made to finance vehicles of foreign manufacture. Whatever happened to the principle of "charity begins at home"? If we are going to own the auto industry, and now we are in the auto loan bidness, couldn't we at least ensure that American manufacturers benefitted more than their Asian counterparts?

Of course the current administration is gambling on the well known proclivity of many Americans to expect something for nothing. If you happen to be in the market for a new, eco-friendly green car and you can afford the payments and you happen to be driving an evil SUV, sure a rebate of up to $4500 samolians sounds great. Now stop and think for a moment. Where does money for those rebates come from? Like my mythical "Gas for Guzzlers" program, it comes from the Federal Government, which in turn gets its revenue from you, me and yes the drives of those trendy, new, earth saving automobiles, the cash strapped American taxpayer. So we the people end up subsidizing vehicles for people who can probably already make the payments on their own and all in the name of what? Extending government control to every corner of the economy. More and more we crawl towards socialism, the furthest possible political condition from that envisioned by our Founders.

It is all the rage today….health care reform. The President is spending large sums of political capital in an effort to achieve reform on the premise of “Americans want it” and on the promise that it will be “budget neutral”. Both premise and promise are false. Americans overwhelmingly do not want health care reform and why should they? American health care is the best in the world. A Gallup poll released today shows 50% of Americans do not approve of the way President Obama is handling this issue while 44% have been contacted by ACORN and have signed documents, (under no duress) averring to their loyal preference for government mandated health coverage for all. satirical point for those of you in Sun Valley.

If we carp and complain about sitting around an emergency room waiting for service, or having to wait a week to get into see our primary care physician, how much worse must it be in countries with no incentive based medical market? Do prices rise in a free market? Yes, especially when there is increased demand for a limited product. Witness gas prices related to the availability of oil. Oh wait, supply and demand economics is not something your average lib’rul is familiar with. When the President goes on TV, as he does near interminably, and tells us that we will not have to give up our current health care provider, and that the implementation of nationalized health care will be budget neutral he is displaying either incalculable naivete about economics or utter disregard for Joe and Jane patient who will end up paying for the latest government boondoggle. As a Nevada resident and sometime gambler, my wager is on Option #2.

You see the President doesn’t actually KNOW you and he could frankly care less about anyone outside of either his immediate family or his circle of power. (Witness his shabby treatment of half brothers and auntie) Sorry to break it to you folks but the 44th President of the United States is not pushing health care reform because of his benevolent character. Health care reform is merely the latest means by which lib’ruls intend to vastly expand government, pushing the nation ever closer to their socialist utopia that any legitimate American knows is unattainable. Why then? It’s simple, a power grab. By effectively nationalizing the fastest growing segment of the economy, the O’Bama administration hopes to gain millions of new public sector union employees. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, health care accounts for about 14 million workers right now and that figure is expected to grow by 3 million more in the next 7 years. Now imagine those millions, dependent on the government for their employment, and carrying AFSCME, CWA or AFL-CIO cards. If the entire scheme ultimately proves to be bust, an utter financial millstone around the neck of America, would we ever be able to get rid of it with those millions of workers depending on government checks? Never. When has the size of non-military government ever been reduced?

This is a great deal for all the left wing special interest groups out there. Big labor will gain millions of new members to inflate their membership rolls from the current declining figures. Tort lawyers, who are responsible in large part for driving up medical costs due to excessive and or frivolous malpractice suits, will never go wanting for employment and by default, any awards their clients receive will now be backed by the full faith and credit of…..the American TAXPAYER! Since the government will now be in the business of shortening peoples’ lives in order to balance the Office of Management and Budget books, the teachers unions will also benefit since they can now churn out an unceasing supply of future Psych majors specializing in “End of Life Counseling”. As an added bonus we can also look forward to even more massive eco-green-tree hugging regulation of pharmaceuticals, the same kind that has stifled reliable energy development in California. “Who cares if this drug promises an end to cancer? Harvesting the necessary components endangers the Western Tree Slug, indigenous throughout North and South America. Besides it will only prolong life for the sick and elderly, and that threatens to unbalance the national health care books, can’t let that happen and have the gub’mint look bad, then voters might actually elect….hiss….conservatives…”

Joe and Jane patient might think it sounds like a good deal. No more messy selection process for HMO’s or primary care physicians, determining what hospital to go to in an emergency, or deductible worries. What Joe and Jane Citizen almost always fail to consider is this: Those added government programs cost money. Where does the gub’mint get its money? You and me…John and Jill Taxpayer. When tort lawyers bring suits against government doctors and are awarded monies, those monies are going to be coming from John and Jill. Then there is the problem of supply and demand with medical staff. When there is insufficient incentive to command the best, brightest and most ambitious towards the medical field, they will find successful employment elsewhere. That seems to be a hallmark of the type…success. Of course the left is only interested in gub’mint mandated success, not the old-fashioned “pull yourself up by your bootstraps” kind. After all, that isn’t fair to folks without bootstraps.

Finally, why is the left so committed to this? Americans have spoken out recently about larger issues and worries, a deficit that balloons out of control with our children’s futures mortgaged, the failure of public education and the looming crisis of the impending insolvency of Social Security. Why don’t they tackle these pressing issues? Because each of them is an example of abject government failure in general and lib’rul social policy in particular. We certainly can't remind the voters that gub'mint is failing with educating our children, failed to reform Social Security, failed to alleviate the recession and most spectacularly, despite countless billions spent, failed to win the War on Poverty. Certainly George W. Bush proposed a deficit budget in his final years in office, (an act I was outraged by) but Congress controls the purse strings and the last budget passed by a Republican Congress had a deficit less than 1/5 of the current budget proposed by the democrat Congress.

Public education continues to fail to educate our children at an appalling rate. Standardized test scores over the past 40 years demonstrate amply that while our kids probably know how to put on a condom, they almost certainly do not know that Thomas Jefferson was the author of the Declaration of Independence and not a small forward for the New Jersey Nets. Of course those are the priorities of the NEA today. It’s far more important that kids feel good about themselves and be engaged in all types of sexual instruction than it is to learn about our nation’s founding. Sadly when President Bush proposed education reform, he allowed Senator Kennedy (L, People’s Republic of Massachusetts) to write the legislation. That effectively gutted any meaningful reform but allowed Bush to crow about obtaining important legislation. Finally, we have talked endlessly about the need to repair Social Security. The financial crisis that is staring it in the face has been known for 25 years or more, yet we continue to fiddle like Nero as Rome burns around us. Those are real, pressing concerns for all of America, not the myth of universal healthcare that will serve to benefit a select few, especially if those select few vote reliably democrat.

To even the most casual observer a lot of what ails America was on full display today. As if the interminable coverage of Michael Jackson’s memorial service wasn’t enough, legitimate Americans had to endure the intelligence insulting spectacle of Al Franken being sworn into the United States Senate. The admittance of Al Franken into the senior legislative branch of government is an automatic disqualifier for the previous claim of that group of legislators to be “the world’s greatest deliberative body”. Now the rest of America will suffer for the sins of Minnesota.

While Minnesotans have always evinced a certain political independence, for the most part this independence has flirted with the radical political left so it has almost never been to America’s general benefit. That is their right however and I do not begrudge them their right to elect U.S. Senators as set forth in the 17th Amendment. I do however begrudge Minnesotan’s seeming preoccupation with celebrity as a qualifying virtue for public office. Recall that these are the same people who gave us Governor Jesse Ventura. Celebrity is not a bad thing in and of itself. Certain celebrities have gone on to long and distinguished political careers. Ronald Reagan and Will Rogers come to mind. Al Franken is neither as charming as Reagan nor as quick witted as Rogers.

The reason I mention all of this is because Minnesota is symptomatic of the nation at large. Real heroes died today. We lose approximately 1,000 veterans of World War II every day now. As I type this, the Fifth Marine Regiment is combating the Taliban in Afghanistan and the USS Ronald Reagan and her carrier battle group take up station in the Arabian Sea. But tonight’s news will be more coverage of pampered, narcissistic celebrities mourning a man whose legacy is marred by charges child molestation and overindulgence in yet more narcissism. I don’t care how much money for charities Michael Jackson might have raised, any one of the real heroes that passes today will have contributed far more to America than did Mr. Jackson. Sadly they will not be remembered for it because our society glorifies the celebrity.

As a society we have replaced God with fame. We worship at the altar of Hollywood and allow secularism to dictate our moral values to us. I was recently engaged in a debate with a woman about gays in the military. She was in favor of doing away with the “Don’t ask, don’t tell” policy and I was in favor of maintaining it. Her argument was essentially that gays are having their civil rights violated. How so? They are allowed to serve currently, they simply cannot flaunt their sexual identity to the world or engage in behavior detrimental to good order and discipline. Two things the military needs in order to perform its most important task, engaging and destroying our enemies when ordered to do so. The military is not and should not be a test tube for social engineering.

This woman argued back that homosexuality is not a choice but a genetic disposition. My response was a citation from the American Psychological Association, wherein the latest study posted on their website indicates that homosexuality can be both genetically indicated or chosen as a behavior and in essence the current military policy only proscribes actual homosexual behavior. What rights of theirs are being taken away? An officer who is openly adulterous or who engages in white supremacist behavior would similarly be discharged from the service.

The point of all this is that the left cannot abide traditional moral values. The simple reason is that moral values are almost always derived from religious beliefs and cultural mores that may or may not be “just” to some. So the left seeks to impose a new value system upon the rest of the nation, devoid of God, or a religious basis, save the religion of liberalism. Moral relativism is dangerous and the society it would create would ironically be without morals because everything would be “just” and equal. What lib'ruls continually fail to recognize is that ultimately the concepts of "right" and "wrong" are moral values.

While men are endowed by their Creator with equal rights, not all men are created equally, this is scientific fact, not the hodgepodge of liberal talking points endlessly cited as reasons to abandon “Don’t ask, don’t tell. Any man who would put proclaiming his sexual identity before the needs of the service and the nation, does not demonstrate judgment, merely that his personal sexual gratification is more important than the needs of the country. At the beginning I noted the orgiastic display of fawning Michael Jackson coverage and the tragic-comedy of Al Franken becoming a U.S. Senator. This is what “progressivism” brings. Liberalism, moral relativism and cultural Marxism have already overwhelmed the mainstream media and destroyed our public schools. Today's events merely reinforce that opinion. The question now becomes, do legitimate Americans have what it takes to reclaim our schools, our culture and our moral foundations? Or is our society too far gone indulging itself in celebrity worship?

Good afternoon, fellow legitimate Americans. Your friendly neighborhood Spider Dan reporting.

With all we have to concern ourselves -- thanks to the incredible incompetence displayed by the regime of Hopey-Dopey, Reid, Pelosi, et. al. -- it's difficult to single out an issue that legitimate Americans should address realistically, effectively, and immediately. Life in our great nation continues toward the day when liberals will finally find themselves reduced to the septic tank of history, although the damage they do enroute to that long deserved resting place may be severe.

As expected, the current administration is demonstrating measures of incompetence on the foreign policy front many forecast, yet hoped would not be realized. Sports fans, our worst nightmare is unfolding before our very eyes -- thanks in large part to a fawning and completely "in-the-tank" media. It seemed only a few short months ago this "watchdog media" was using every rumor, innuendo, and baseless accusation to portray the Bush administration as nothing short of criminal. Perverting the foundation of our free press mandate -- established by our founding fathers -- the current batch of left wing ideologues contaminating mass media has all but abandoned their constitutionally protected duty to identify and report on the degrees of failure we're rapidly seeing from those entrenched in Washington. In a word, that's their "team" holding the reins of government. If it weren't actually happening, I would never believe it could -- not in this great nation.

Let's get to the salient issues confronting us today. North Korea is a good place to start. I had the honor of serving as a member of the vaunted Joint Security Force's First Platoon at Panmunjom, Korea back during the final stages of the Vietnam conflict. The Cold War was evolving, communists were emboldened by America's withdrawal from Southeast Asia, and rogue outfits (like North Korea) took full advantage of the propaganda windfall that accompanied the end of American military activity in Vietnam. Fast forward to present day -- little has changed behind the secretive and dangerous borders of what is proving to be the world's most dysfunctional nation.

South Korea (Republic of Korea for you liberals and other such half-witted idiots) is a booming nation of nearly 50 million hearty souls. Many of my personal experiences there were profound and enlightening, as you might expect. The most important thing I retained from my tour in the DMZ was how much we need to end the threat coming from the north, no matter how it was accomplished. While it would be nice if this plague on mankind would finally crumble and fade into the ashes of history, North Korea somehow manages to plod along like a rabid dog rifling through the world's garbage cans. All it takes is a Democrat in the White House to keep them propped up, appeased, and comfortable knowing the United States has no intention on putting this blight on the world's population out of its misery. Boasting of a nuclear capability, North Korea now threatens to wipe the US off the face of the Earth if provoked. For all you liberals and left wing nincompoops, that means having North Korean missiles rain nuclear warheads down on your head. For the rest of us, it means the "talking part" is over.

I know the North Koreans don't have the capability to deliver nuclear weapons on ballistic missiles. What the North Koreans can do is terrorize South Korea, perhaps Japan, with short range missiles that could very well contain chemical or biological warheads. The north has a large and heavily indoctrinated military that will attempt to invade the south with the same effect they had in 1950. Trouble is, the south is more than capable of repelling such an invasion, and very likely will counter-strike the north to end the Korean nightmare once and for all. The problem is this: Seoul, the South Korean capital, lies in range of most North Korean artillery and short range missiles. Civilian casualties could number in the hundreds of thousands unless something is done to negate that threat. The combination of US/ROK air power and land/naval forces would brunt a full scale invasion by North Korean forces, but how do we avoid the horror of so many innocent South Koreans being killed for what will prove to be the grand finale of the north's despicable regime?

North Korea constantly brays about the inevitability of US military action. It's time we gave them something to worry about. As we wind down in Iraq, adequate forces can be deployed to Korea in a legitimate show of force -- not just the garrisoned cadre, but a full scale deployment of land, air, and sea forces that would demonstrate the resolve of the international community to end the threat coming from the north. It is insanity personified to allow this madman and his regime to hold millions hostage to death or serious injury by weapons of mass destruction. If the citizens of North Korea cannot liberate themselves, it is beyond time the international community -- including China and Russia -- do what is necessary to put evil in its place.

I've been following politics more or less since the Carter Administration. Roughly the same time I learned the value of a dollar, which put me way ahead of the former president in terms of economic understanding. Now I had occasion over the weekend to explain to my son that it is nearly a universal given that all politicians lie, but the ability of lib'ruls to twist words and spin news never fails to impress. In all those years of following politics, I cannot recall a president taking credit for "saving jobs". How exactly does the current administration calculate the number of jobs saved? Ouija board? Mood ring? Magic eightball? Or are they relying on the more tested lib'rul method of presenting information known as: "shout loudly, deny the facts and obfuscate the issue." This latter method is more popularly known in some social circles as "pulling arguments and numbers out of your posterior."

Today the gub'mint claimed to have saved some 150,000 jobs since coming into office. The President stated today that in addition to saving those jobs, the $787 billion stimulus package that was forced down our throats, would by the end of summer save or create a further 600,000 jobs. Where? We were assured when the President pressed Congress for the stimulus package that there would be tens of thousands of shovel ready jobs meaning that people could be put immediately to work. If that was so, then why has unemployment continued to climb? Simple, continued government interference in the free-market, in the form of higher taxes and increased regulation stifle both economic recovery and growth. Add into that the lack of accountability for the hundreds of billions of tax dollars already thrown at the situation for no apparent gain and even the densest politico has to acknowledge that the Imperial Federal Gubmint has exceeded its constitutional mandate.

Of course the nasty little secret about this mess is that the Obama administration has printed hundreds of billions of dollars to pump into the economic system. The bad thing here is that those dollars aren't backed up by much more than the printing presses that churned them out. Dollars have to be backed by value to maintain a stable economy. When you add more of them to the system, the rest of them are devalued. For those of you fledgling econ students, that means inflation. Anyone check the price of a loaf of bread or gallon of milk lately compared to last year or two years ago? Inflation is a comin' hard. Then we can really compare and contrast the current administration to another lib'rul failure refernced above, from 30 years past. Hmmm...lib'ruls...failure...I repeat myself...

Gangsters understand and respect one thing whether on the street or in prison. Force. To the average American gangsters are intimidating only because they understand the use of force and indulge in the practice of wanton and violent application of it to effect their designs. I bring this up because for someone supposedly steeped in the tradition of Chicago gang history and dynamics, President Obama is either dangerously naive and ignorant about the basics of diplomacy or he is repudiating 60 years of American foreign policy. If Obama appears weak and conciliatory, it does not make our enemies and the world's opportunists like us more, instead it only serves to undermine our safety at home and abroad.

The problem for America is that doctrinaire lib'ruls like Obama always fail to make the same connection. Street gang thugs and tinpot third world dictatorial thugs who happen to control a country are cut from the same bolt of cloth. They think nothing of the most sociopathic behavior. History has demonstrated time and again that force is the only means by which to negotiate with them. Based on the utter lack of forceful response to either of the recent Iranian or North Korean provocations, and based on Obama's demonstrated fawning before the leaders of Islam and pan-Arabism, we are left to infer that either the Obama administration approves of the outlaw state actions and are sympathetic to their cause, or that the current American foriegn policy is incapable of dealing with a street level dispute in a major American city, much less the 5000 year struggle in the Middle East. Whether this change of course is due to naivete or conspiracy it matters not, in either event it does not bode well for America.

Obama bows to the Saudi King, he insults the Prime Minister of Great Britain and the British Queen with gifts more appropriate to an American teenager and he denigrates our intelligence and military communities in subtle ways with his words and actions. Today's blow comes in form of a dissed dinner invitation. On the eve of the D-Day Anniversary, French President Sarkozy had invited the Obama's to a formal supper at the Palace Elysee. The Obama's couldn't be troubled since they were staying at the American embassy, right next door. Too far to travel apparently. Perhaps had Obama been the beneficiary of a proper education in American History, he would have learned that France is our oldest ally, the one power who came to our aid when we most needed it in 1776-1778. I know I like to bash the French as much as the next guy and their most recent military history leaves something to be desired, but then again, I am not the official representative of the American people, the policymaker and the man who receives invitations to supper from the French President. (Memo to Sarko, Mrs. Smilin' Paul and I are free next Saturday...just sayin'...)

Of course left unsaid in this flurry of events is the obvious. Despite his protestations of centrism, Obama maintains a healthy disregard for anyone or anything to the political right. French President Sarkozy represents to the French people a seismic shift to the political right. Additionally his comments and actions towards the huge illegal muslim population in France have probably not warmed the cockles of our multicultural president's heart. So it is easier for the international socialist currently impersonating an American Commander in Chief to meet with self-indulgent dictators and sponsors of terrorism than it is to foster relations with our allies.

Of course his feel good diplomacy and less than tough talk have not stopped or even slowed the development of nuclear weapons by Iran and North Korea. Only today a new ICBM base was unveiled on the west coast of North Korea. Obama can always find the right words or actions to convey a sense of disdain for our friends, but it is a physical impossibility for him to forcefully renounce the actions of our enemies. To be sure he utters words that could loosely be construed as condemnation of nefarious foreign activity but his moves to finance and legitimize Middle East terrorists only serve to encourage the madmen in Pyongyang and Tehran. All of this activity can only viewed in the most alarmist terms in Israel. Our oldest ally in the Middle East and the only nation practicing democracy in that area prior to the Iraq War, is effectively left alone to confront the spectre of nuclear annihilation.

Where is the sanity? America is at war with radical Islam. The sooner that most Americans recognize that fact, the sooner we can move beyond the tragedy of this current administration, whose sole purpose thus far appears to be to destabilize the American economy, to renounce American foriegn policy and to subvert our culture. President Obama is the worst manifestation of overwrought multiculturalism. In foreign policy terms, this administration is overthinking everything on the side of the enemy. Just as you cannot make the Chicago gangs get along, you cannot achieve peace in the Middle East by feel good proclamations on one hand and backhanding our allies with the other. Geopolitical and military factors dictate one nation's response to another just as certainly as a drive-by shooting on the southside of Chicago will dictate a response from the intended victim gang.

The actions of Obama are at the same time staggeringly arrogant and naive. Israel has been left to stand alone despite the many concessions made on her part over the past 15 years. Palestinians will never be happy until there is no more Israel. The Israelis, who do not suffer the naivete of our Imperious Leader, understand their predicament. Let's hope it comes as no surprise to the Harvard whiz kids at the State Department when Israel turns to India or China to ensure her existence. It would serve us right.
