Where’s Indonesian Diplomatic Immunity When You Need It?

Judah Benjamin at TexasDarlin has done all the leg-work on this one. You MUST read the entire thing. It is ponderous, I know, but quite enlightening.

I am not holding my breath because if Senator Obama had, at any point, been open, transparent and honest about his past I would not have had to undertake this research in the first place and I would not have reached the conclusions I have. The DNC should never have accepted his candidacy/nomination/call it what you will in the first place because from the time he wrote “Dreams of my Father” he has been romanticizing and embroidering his family history to specifically eliminate his Indonesian boyhood from public consciousness. It is self apparent that he is not telling the whole truth.

My favorite quote is this:

If my conclusions on Article II are correct he would be ineligible for the Office of POTUS.

Oh, and this…

More than that, though, at least four FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS must know the truth:

(a) The Government of the UK…
(b) The Government of Australia…
(c) The Government of Indonesia…
(d) The Government of Kenya.

All of these Governments would be in a position to Blackmail Senator Obama now, or in the future, IF my suspicions were true. How many other Governments know the truth I do not know.

Just gives you warm fuzzies all over, doesn’t it? Change, change, change…that’s his story.

Letter to the Editor – Change in America

More from the mailbag. The actual letter to the Richmond Times-Dispatch is here. [Emphasis mine]

Editor, Times-Dispatch:
Each year I get to celebrate Independence Day twice. On June 30 I celebrate my independence day and on July 4 I celebrate America’s. This year is special, because it marks the 40th anniversary of my independence.

On June 30, 1968, I escaped Communist Cuba and a few months later I was in the United States to stay. That I happened to arrive in Richmond on Thanksgiving Day is just part of the story, but I digress.

I’ve thought a lot about the anniversary this year. The election-year rhetoric has made me think a lot about Cuba and what transpired there. In the late 1950s, most Cubans thought Cuba needed a change, and they were right. So when a young leader came along, every Cuban was at least receptive.

When the young leader spoke eloquently and passionately and denounced the old system, the press fell in love with him. They never questioned who his friends were or what he really believed in. When he said he would help the farmers and the poor and bring free medical care and education to all, everyone followed. When he said he would bring justice and equality to all, everyone said “Praise the Lord.” And when the young leader said, “I will be for change and I’ll bring you change,” everyone yelled, “Viva Fidel!”

But nobody asked about the change, so by the time the executioner’s guns went silent the people’s guns had been taken away. By the time everyone was equal, they were equally poor, hungry, and oppressed. By the time everyone received their free education it was worth nothing. By the time the press noticed, it was too late, because they were now working for him. By the time the change was finally implemented Cuba had been knocked down a couple of notches to Third-World status. By the time the change was over more than a million people had taken to boats, rafts, and inner tubes. You can call those who made it ashore anywhere else in the world the most fortunate Cubans. And now I’m back to the beginning of my story.

Luckily, we would never fall in America for a young leader who promised change without asking, what change? How will you carry it out? What will it cost America?

Would we?

God Bless you, Mr. Alvarez. I wish the rest of America could see the danger as well as you do.

The Obama List

(h/t Fausta) Doug Ross has the definitive list of Obama’s “policy corrections.” Check back often. It should be updated daily, if not hourly.

Rick Moran has his own list.

And Fausta has her reached her own creepy threshold as well.

(UPDATE) Babalu has Mas, Mas, Mas!

Like Rick,

I try to laugh and make fun of the candidate’s hubris, the wild eyed, gyrating women who nearly swoon when he speaks, the supporters who walk and talk as if they were programmed – but my heart is rapidly losing the desire to make sport of this situation. Unless he shoots himself in his own foot, this man is going to be the next president of the United States.

And that, my friends, is a scary thought indeed.

Marine, Snubbed

From the mailbag…(forwarded by a military mom)

Hello everyone,
As you know I am not a very political person. I just wanted to pass along that Senator Obama came to Bagram Afghanistan for about an hour on his visit to ‘The War Zone’. I wanted to share with you what happened. He got off the plane and got into a bullet proof vehicle, got to the area to meet with the Major General (2 Star) who is the commander here at Bagram.

As the Soldiers were lined up to shake his hand he blew them off and didn’t say a word as he went into the conference room to meet the General. As he finished, the vehicles took him to the ClamShell (pretty much a big top tent that military personnel can play basketball or work out in with weights) so he could take his publicity pictures playing basketball. He again shunned the opportunity to talk to Soldiers to thank them for their service.

So really he was just here to make a showing for the American’s back home that he is their candidate for President. I think that if you are going to make an effort to come all the way over here you would thank those that are providing the freedom that they are providing for you.

We got more thanks from the NBA Basketball Players or the Dallas Cowboy Cheer leaders than from one of the Senators, who wants to be the President of the United States. I just don’t understand how anyone would want him to be our Commander-in-Chief. It was almost that he was scared to be around those that provide the freedom for him and our great country.

If this is blunt and to the point I am sorry but I wanted you all to know what kind of caliber of person he really is. What you see in the news is all fake.

In service,
CPT Jeffrey S. Porter
Battle Captain

American Soldier

And this man wants to be President….

The Truth in Those Old Sayings

Remember those old sayings that you’d hear from your grandma? No amount of the then teenage eye-rolling can cancel out the bittersweet memories of their words, or the fact that they were right.

Many times, when you hear about a child gone bad, you’ll hear this as well, “Oh, bless their little hearts. They never had a chance – there were a product of their environment.” Children learn what they see more than what they hear. Is it any surprise that Obama can’t make up his mind or tell the truth about anything? So why does his opponent get all the bad press, when he’s only describing Obama in the glaring light of truth? If a Republican was running on this garbage, he’d be laughed off the stage. But why should we expect anything different? Just look at his family dynamics. How can he tell the truth if he’s never heard it before? Why is it he believes everything he says is “Only Words,” when those who worship him see them as promise and commitments? If he is elected, who will he be beholden to? His constituents, the American people, or his Muslim handlers? His Chicago handlers? His Trinity handlers?

Another old saying is “They will know you by the company you keep.” Evidently, the crowd running with and swirling around Obama are lacking the most basic mores. For example, Obama’s private prayer that was wedged into the Wailing Wall during his visit to Jerusalem, was REMOVED and PUBLISHED. (h/t The Anchoress) What a despicable invasion of privacy! What’s worse, is this web-site that “fisked” the prayer and is encouraging debate on its contents. How can a site call itself “faith-based” if they are nosing around in people’s prayer? How rude is that? Since when has the personal and intimate converation between a person and their Maker been the fodder for the media? Oh wait, my bad, I forgot, we’re talking about a Democrat here. To further illustrate the media’s infatuation with Obama, just consider how the media would have reacted if it had been Bush’s prayer. It goes without saying that he’d be ridiculed from sea to shining sea. Worse than what you see in the tabloids about some drunk rocker-wannabee falling off the wagon straight out of rehab. Whether it was a misguided news-hound or one of the worshiping minions – it was WAY out of line.

Not only do we not know who Obama is, or what he stands for, neither does his staff or I’d warrant even himself. And why should he? He’s got the media doing all the heavy lifting for him. That way, he can stay on track with the teleprompter.

UPDATE: Well, now there is a new wrinkle, and to be honest, I’m not surprised. Obama continues to amaze in the depths he will stoop to grovel for votes. The Anchoress laments…

Was the whole thing, after all, staged to gain the sympathy of the religiously inclined, who have been mistrustful of Obama? Am I a schmuck for choosing to believe the best of Obama and his campaign, and not the worst? Has cynicism really trumped everything? What is the truth of this story? Will we EVER know? Will the press EVER ask? Oy!

[…]If Obama abused the goodwill of those who wished to believe the best of him – and who decried the publication of his “private” prayer (and many believers did) – that will be pretty shabby, and needlessly cynical. So much for “change.”

Indeed. That shiny facade is beginning to crack.

Media Bias? REALLY? — UPDATED

The NYTimes refuses to print John McCain’s editorial, just a week after running one from Barack Obama. Hooray for Matt Drudge – for printing the whole thing. The Grey Lady is now nailing the nails in her own coffin.

Media Bias – ReallyYa Think?

The Anchoress says…

…the Times decision strikes me as so outrageous, controlling and foreign to the concept of the free exchange of ideas in an election season. The NY Times says “revisions are often requested”, well, okay, but when Obama is getting the equivalent of millions of dollars of free and uncritical exposure, why can’t McCain just be allowed to say what the hell he wants for a few hundred words?

Then she goes on to congratulate the paper on creating the ultimate underdog in this strangest of all elections. And Americans being the competitive sorts we are, pull for the underdogs. After all, when this nation was young, WE were the underdogs!

UPDATE: The New York Post printed McCain’s editorial. I wonder what the NYT weasels are saying now.

Even the Left is noticing the gag-inducing LoveFest. Via Newsbusters:

Andrea Mitchell might be a doyenne of the liberal media, but she has her reporter’s pride and principles, which have been trampled by the way the Obama campaign has managed the media during the candidate’s current trip to Afghanistan and Iraq. Mitchell let loose on this evening’s Hardball, speaking of “fake interviews,” and decrying that she was unable to report on pertinent aspects of the trip because the media has been excluded and that the video released is unreliable because it’s impossible to know what has been edited out.

Jennifer Rubin has more at PJM.

Obama has shamelessly used the troops as a “tool,” a backdrop for his “presidential” pretend sessions, just like selecting the lovely swirly gray background for your family portrait. He is not giving press conferences or talking to the press, obviously to avoid his peculiar way of “mis-speaking.” But he’s really lining himself up for a belly-flop in Berlin, after changing the location of his speech (emphasis mine):

Team Obama has outdone themselves on symbolism with this choice. They’ve managed to make their hosts uncomfortable for a second time with their choice of rallying point, and perhaps more so this time. If one wanted to talk peace, what worse location could one choose than Adolf Hitler’s favorite monument to militaristic domination? One has to wonder how France, Denmark, and Austria will feel about Obama rallying German masses under the Siegessäule. Deja vu?

James Lewis at The American Thinker notes that the Siegessäule with its super-sized phallic imagery is a favorite landmark of Berlin gays, which is humorous in itself since Little Adolf was such a homophobe. In Europe, everything old is new again. The snooty socialist condescension toward their rescuers from over the pond never abated.

In fact, Eurosocialism still contains all the seeds of classic European imperialism: The endless sense of Europe’s superiority over the rest of the world, the preachiness of how the rest of the world must live, the constant efforts to impose global carbon taxes, poverty taxes, and UN rules on subject nations (like the US) for the greater glory of Germany-France-Spain-Britain — all the classic European imperial powers look at the US with green imperialism envy.

Imperialism never stopped in Europe. It just stopped being violent for a while, because America beat European imperial powers in WWI, WWII, and the Cold War. And don’t think they don’t know it. Why do you think Europeans loved to hate America over the overthrow of Saddam? Saddam’s Baathist Party was modeled after Europe’s fascist parties, after all.

[…] Welcome back to Europe, Senator Obama. They will recognize you there, although they might be just a little bit nervous about those screaming mass rallies on their home grounds. That hasn’t really happened a lot since you-know-who.

But, wouldn’t you know, as usual, The Anchoress has the best quote over all these Obamagasms: “Only a Sith speaks in absolutes.” Maybe we should test his blood for midiclorians.

So many gaffes, so little time. Should start tallying lists of things he HASN’T misspoken about instead? That sounds less daunting.

The View from Pelosi’s Titanic Deck Chair

Remember the part from the movie Titanic, when the captain instructed the string quartet to play something “cheerful” while the panicked passengers loaded the lifeboats? SanFranNan is sitting in her deck chair, tapping her toes to the music, oblivious to the reality around her.

After eighteen months of a Democratically controlled Congress, let’s take a look at gas prices (chart from Gasbuddy, via Michelle Malkin).

My, my. Haughty Pelosi sniffs and asks if the lifeboats will be seated by class. Heaven forbid she would have to rub elbows with any dirty, greasy commoners. President Bush called her bluff, lifting the executive order prohibiting drilling off American shores and urging Congress to lift their ban as well. Then an amazing thing happened – oil prices dropped.

Enraged that the Evil Bush might get an upper hand, she lashes out, stamping her feet and yelling Hoax! Hoax! But the joke is on her.

In the meantime, while the world is distracted by the Magical Mystery Tour cavorting about across the pond, Nancy’s minions quietly float the idea of a gas tax increase. Classic taxation without representation, but with pixie dust!

The Audacity of Friday

The Anchoress sums up my feelings about Obama in a well-reasoned post. The operative word is UNCOMFORTABLE. How can you expect a person to handle the hardest job in the world, when he can’t handle the simple release of a birth certificate? Could it be he is HIDING something? Why are his minions scrubbing his web site? Why does he need 300 foreign policy advisers? Is he done with channeling Xerxes and now styles himself as a modern-day Leonides? Oh, PUH-LEEZZEE.

Pardon me, but you’d think if he was REALLY born in Hawaii, he’d at least get the Pearl Harbor facts right.

While Obama is over in Europe on his rock star tour, complete with lap-dog anchorpersons to breathlessly report every crease in his trousers, his supporters stateside are issuing death-threats to Clinton supporters who refuse to be assimilated. One was even targeted with arson. Obamatrons gone wild.

(delinked) Charles Krauthammer says it best, though, when he notes

Barack Obama wants to speak at the Brandenburg Gate. He figures it would be a nice backdrop. The supporting cast — a cheering audience and a few fainting frauleins — would be a picturesque way to bolster his foreign policy credentials.

What Obama does not seem to understand is that the Brandenburg Gate is something you earn. President Ronald Reagan earned the right to speak there because his relentless pressure had brought the Soviet empire to its knees and he was demanding its final “tear down this wall” liquidation. When President John F. Kennedy visited the Brandenburg Gate on the day of his “Ich bin ein Berliner” speech, he was representing a country that was prepared to go to the brink of nuclear war to defend West Berlin.

Who is Obama representing? And what exactly has he done in his lifetime to merit appropriating the Brandenburg Gate as a campaign prop? What was his role in the fight against communism, the liberation of Eastern Europe, the creation of what George Bush the elder — who presided over the fall of the Berlin Wall but modestly declined to go there for a victory lap — called “a Europe whole and free”?

Does Obama not see the incongruity? It’s as if a German pol took a campaign trip to America and demanded the Statue of Liberty as a venue for a campaign speech. (The Germans have now gently nudged Obama into looking at other venues.)

Americans are beginning to notice Obama’s elevated opinion of himself.

Most right-of-center bloggers have been noticing for a while. But now, it seems that a couple of (delinked) MSM outlets are daring to raise concerns. Wonder how long before they are under the bus….?

Well, About Time for Some JibJab!

Like others who understand the definition of satire, and revel in a hefty dose of good, healthy snark – I’ve been waiting for JibJab to come out with their Electoral Offering. And they don’t disappoint!

Satire Isn’t Satire If Someone Has To Explain It To You

Michael Weiss writes for PJM:

Listening to the chorus of fainthearted responses to this week’s New Yorker cover, one gets the impression that satire, like everything else in our sad culture, must now come with a warning label and child-safety latch. Barry Blitt’s slightly overwrought but still amusing illustration, which is even pedantically titled “The Politics of Fear,” features the Obamas fist-bumping in the Oval Office. Michelle is rendered as an AK-47-wielding Angela Davis, Barack is tricked out as a pious Muslim, an Osama Bin Laden portrait hangs on the wall and an American flag burns in the fireplace.

Irony should cut like a rapier, not drop like a Steinway, but still, it’s not hard to appreciate what this pictorial intends. Yet it has got a few supporters of the Illinois senator barking mad.

[…] A basic rule of satire is that if you have to explain your point, even a little bit, you’ve already failed.

[…] A less observed rule of satire concerns its inevitable consequences. No amount of explanation will ensure that the joke won’t still be misconstrued or misunderstood by those destined by cruel nature to do just that. What are the odds that the number of voters who think that the “real” Barack Obama belongs in a Gitmo detention cell has increased since this latest issue of the New Yorker hit newsstands? Anyone who could be converted to those feverish ranks by a mere caricature is going to cause electoral trouble anyway.

We saw with bloody effect, in the aftermath of the Danish cartoon mess, that some audiences are born thick and crude, and that the only sure way to prevent giving “offense” to them is not to do or say anything, anytime, anywhere. It was argued then by correct-thinking types who claim to be on the side of art and literature and free expression that those cartoonists were right-wing bigots who needlessly provoked their own attempted murders. Now a highbrow liberal weekly in the United States is being assailed by the bien-pensant because it failed to dumb down its characteristically mordant daubing.

So much for the idea that sophistication is moored to progressive politics.

Like bad jokes from a reality TV comedian contest, Obama still doesn’t get it. It was HIS choice to step into the public limelight, the mother of all public limelights, in fact, by entering the race for the American Presidency. This isn’t the 1920’s, where campaigns are run from smoky rooms and speeches made from cabooses in every little town between here and Topeka. This is the first decade of the 21st century, where every outfit, tie, hair, zit, accessory, shoelace and breath of the Annointed is recorded and photographed and you-tubed for three dimensional examination for proof that he is the second-coming. And some Democrats are beginning to see that he is NOT:

After a brief bout of Obamamania, some Capitol Hill Democrats have begun to complain privately that Barack Obama’s presidential campaign is insular, uncooperative and inattentive to their hopes for a broad Democratic victory in November.

“They think they know what’s right and everyone else is wrong on everything,” groused one senior Senate Democratic aide. “They are kind of insufferable at this point.” (Politico)

Obama is the very worst kind of politician, not some new, improved variety, and it is wise to remember that every organization is a mirror of its leader.

If this man is elected (which he won’t be; his shortcomings are so severe) this would be the type of Administration we could expect: Swaggering braggadocio on an epic scale accompanied by an infantile self-confidence born of nothing.

A thick-as-asphalt-skin is requirement numero uno to run for President. Michelle Malkin thinks he’s overreacting. Then she lists just a small sampling of the cartoons that others in public office have had to endure lately. You didn’t hear THEM crying to media,complaining and whining that “it offends me”. Get a life!

To add insult to injury, he continues to flip-flop on every issue, like we are a nation full of lemmings incapable of an original thought. How can you explain a simple literary device that your average eighth grader excels in, to a politician who can’t pick a stance and stick with it more than a few days. The latest belly-flop involves his website, which now has been scrubbed of any Surge criticism. That was a pretty big job; must have really reduced his bandwidth requirements! Erick at Redstate compares Obamaworship with another questionable religion, Scientology.

When the situation in Iraq was going badly, Barack Obama wanted us to retreat. When the surge took hold and the situation in Iraq improved, Barack Obama wanted us to retreat. No turn in Iraq went unstoned in Obama’s commitment to retreat and surrender.

Not any more. Obama has thrown his old positions under the bus. And, for a guy whose campaign claims to get the net, he’s done an extremely dumb thing — he purged his website of his former positions. Apparently he’s never heard of a cache.

The presumed Democratic nominee replaced his Iraq issue Web page, which had described the surge as a “problem” that had barely reduced violence.

“The surge is not working,” Obama’s old plan stated, citing a lack of Iraqi political cooperation but crediting Sunni sheiks – not U.S. military muscle – for quelling violence in Anbar Province. . . .

Obama’s campaign posted a new Iraq plan Sunday night, which cites an “improved security situation” paid for with the blood of U.S. troops since the surge began in February 2007.

It praises G.I.s’ “hard work, improved counterinsurgency tactics and enormous sacrifice.”

Gone are Obama’s days of criticizing the surge, which he claimed was sure to fail. It’s like L. Ron Hubbard writing Scientology. Every aspect of the religion is subject to revision until it is published for Tom Cruise to jump on a couch and attract creepy cultists and far left automatons. And even then the second edition can edit out inconvenient gibberish the Messiah originally wrote some staffer accidentally inserted without the foreknowledge or permission of the Messiah.

Is there no position this man will not take that he will later repudiate? Is there nothing this man will not say or do to get elected?

That’s what inexperience and ineptitude get you. Always having to tuck tail and run the other way as fast as you can. This is what we lawyers sometimes denote as a “continuing pattern and practice.”

Oops, missed a couple there, buddy.

The Oracle of Winder writes Obama a letter, asking why he has a “pre-determined agenda” for his fact-finding mission overseas multiple photo-op campaign with tyrants who hate America to Iraq and Afghanistan? Will he change his mind again, saying he misspoke or misphrased this or that when he gets back?

Third, How the HELL can you take an information gathering junket to Iraq and Afghanistan with a predetermined agenda? So you’re going to spend my tax dollars and waste time, fuel and Secret Service security to tell me that you want to end the war? Barack, no one and I repeat, NO ONE wants that war to last any longer than is necessary to achieve victory- a stable, democratic and peaceful country. If you want to make this a charade so you can say you have been there and you still want a unilateral withdrawal, save the effort and just make another speech!

The Anchoress explains being Presidential, for the satirically challenged:

The Office of the American President was not created for pageantry, and the man (or woman) voted into it is not there to be “loved.” He is there to protect and defend his nationals and and articulate the primacy of human liberty throughout the world, even if he never gets much credit for it. Kosovo loves Bill Clinton. Iraq loves George W. Bush.

Nations and people who have lived under jackboot and tyranny always love the American President. And nations ruled by tyrants have always loved his foes.

So Barack, if you can stop checking your pants the mirror, you’ll find an excellent example of “…protect…defend…articulate the primacy of human liberty throughout the world, even if he never gets much credit for it…”, in the Oval Office right now. Not only has he suffered the slings and arrows of outrageous SATIRE over the last eight years, he can spell it and use it in a sentence. So he just beat you at the spelling bee! Try not to be offended or change your answer. Again.

Victor Hill’s Money Pit

This, via the Clayton County News-Daily, should come as no surprise to anyone following the debacle on the southside.

Clayton County Sheriff Victor Hill looted money from a drug forfeiture fund and a vending machine fund, spending it wildly, according to a suit filed by the Sheriff’s Office’s former accountant.

Let’s review, shall we? Snipers on the roof, illegal terminations, hostile take-over attempts, holding inmates double hostage – for paperwork, barring the press from public meetings, 17000 unserved warrants… shall I go on? (Whew! I need to take a little breather here.) He’s a busy fellow alright, especially when it comes to NOT doing the job he was elected for. Destruction seems to be right up his alley – of the rule of law, the citizen’s trust, public safety, accountability, respect, integrity – just pick one. Now Walking Small is running for a second term.

[Pam] Blasingim claims that when she and the legal advisor told the sheriff his spending was inappropriate, he would ask, “Can I go to jail?” When she told him she couldn’t justify expenses, in case of an audit, he allegedly said he wasn’t worried about an audit and she shouldn’t be either — she should just do what she was told.

My hope and prayer for Clayton County is that he loses in the primary. TOMORROW, TOMORROW, the primary’s TOMORROW, it’s only a DAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYY AAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWWAAAAAYYYY!!

UPDATE: At least he’s in a run-off. Unbelievable!

What a Door Does

Gateway Pundit has the quote of the weekend:

John McCain suffered as a POW longer than Barack Obama has been a senator.

In fact, John McCain was a Prisoner of War 13 times longer than Barack Obama was a US senator before he decided to run for President.

From the time Barack Obama was sworn in as a United State Senator, to the time he announced he was forming a Presidential exploratory committee, he logged 143 days of experience in the US Senate.

In contrast, John McCain has 26 years in Congress, 22 years of military service, and 1,966 days in captivity as a POW in Hanoi, via Cheri Jacobus.

This puts things into perspective.

Yessirree, it sure does. Now here we have a picture of the door to Sen. John McCain’s Hoa Lo prison cell (via GatewayPundit & Washington Whisperers)

The same cell in the same prison where McCain reset Bud Day’s arm in this incredible story.

When he [Day] was recaptured, a Vietnamese captor broke his arm and said, “I told you I would make you a cripple.”

The break was designed to shatter Mr. Day’s will. He had survived in prison on the hope that one day he would return to the United States and be able to fly again. To kill that hope, the Vietnamese left part of a bone sticking out of his arm, and put him in a misshapen cast. This was done so that the arm would heal at “a goofy angle,” as Mr. Day explained. Had it done so, he never would have flown again.

But it didn’t heal that way because of John McCain. Risking severe punishment, Messrs. McCain and Day collected pieces of bamboo in the prison courtyard to use as a splint. Mr. McCain put Mr. Day on the floor of their cell and, using his foot, jerked the broken bone into place. Then, using strips from the bandage on his own wounded leg and the bamboo, he put Mr. Day’s splint in place.

Years later, Air Force surgeons examined Mr. Day and complimented the treatment he’d gotten from his captors. Mr. Day corrected them. It was Dr. McCain who deserved the credit. Mr. Day went on to fly again.

This man understands the evil that would destroy America. The door that held him prisoner inside this vile pit for those many dark days did not break his spirit, his sense of duty or his love of country. His belief that he would have a life after his time behind the door gave him the hope and strength to survive.

Now here’s another door.

Guess who is stuck in this door? The same fellow who can’t take a stand and keep it for more than 48 hours. The same fellow who thinks “Do as I say, not as I do” is a campaign platform. The same fellow who believes that less than seven months as a junior senator and some community organizing is experience enough for the job of Commander in Chief.

The door is spinning and spinning and spinning. No way in, no way out. Doors can be like that, you know. The question is, does the door control the man or does the man control the door?
