Obama And Putin At The United Nations - Who’s Kidding Who?

HRH Obama met with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the United Nations yesterday. HRH Obama was eager to show how flexible he was now that he had won reelection and showed off some wonderful yoga poses including Ragdoll, Functional Squat, Kneeling Lunge, Pyramid, and the Extended Child’s Pose. Everyone in attendance thought HRH Obama’s demonstration was amazing.

It was clear that Putin was impressed by HRH Obama’s increased flexibility and asked HRH to email him the name of his yoga instructor.

After the meeting, President Putin met with other world leaders about the ongoing problems in Iraq and Syria.

Meanwhile, HRH Obama went to his scheduled yoga class which includes most, if not all, of the leaders in the impressive 62 country coalition HRH Obama has managed to put together. After the strenuous yoga class, HRH Michelle Obama treated those world leaders in attendance to a lovely afternoon tea which included a variety of teas, wonderful scones served with a lovely blueberry marmalade and cucumber sandwiches which had the cucumber seeds removed and the bread crusts carefully cut off by HRH personally.

HRH Obama lunched while the Middle East burned.

Is Obama A Muslim?

While HRH Obama may not currently be a card carrying Muslim, he went to a Muslim school as a child and his entire administration will not use the term 'radical Muslim' or 'Islamic terrorist' while describing Muslim's who want to kill us.

HRH Obama has insulted the Israeli Prime Minister and has thrown the Jewish state of Israel under the bus with the Iranian deal. He has criticized Christians for the Holy Wars hundreds of years ago, but says nothing about our current problems with the Muslim religion.

If nothing else, one can only conclude that he is, at the very least, a Muslim sympathizer.

Since when is it Donald Trump's job to stand up for our anti-American president?

CNN Presidential Debate - A Few Thoughts

I watched the main debate tonight and the talking heads afterwards and had a few thoughts.

The consensus after the debate was that Carly Fiorina was the winner in the debate and I agree. She is very confident, quite unflappable and has a great grasp of what seems to be most important militarily and internationally. She is also not afraid to confront Hillary Clinton’s obfuscations and outright lies.

The debate was set up to confront the front runner going into the debate about some of the things he has said and because of that he had the most time on camera. The moderators format also made it very hard for Trump to make any positive comments since he was on the defensive almost the whole evening. The one point that he was able to make was that while there is little evidence that vaccinations cause autism, it might be wise to spread out the dosages rather than try to give the full dose of the vaccinations all at one time and Dr. Carson and Dr. Rand Paul seemed to agree with that position.

I got a kick out of Governor Christie complaining about the discussion of Trump and Fiorina’s past business adventures, yet he brings up his adventures as a federal prosecutor and governor in every statement and every ad. Should we care about his past accomplishments more than he cares about Trump’s and Fiorina’s?

Senator Ted Cruz is somewhat of a mystery to me. He seems to remain an also-ran all the while espousing conservative positions on virtually everything. He is smart and unafraid to tell it like it is with regard to the spineless leaders in the House and Senate. He is obviously not the choice of the Washington insiders or talking heads, but I like him a lot.

Senator Marco Rubbio, on the other hand, is a fan favorite of the Washington talking heads and is always mentioned ahead of Senator Cruz. I believe it is his boyish good looks but I don’t trust him on illegal immigration and believe that he would, at some point, be in favor of rewarding illegal immigrants with citizenship and cannot support him.

Dr. Carson could operate on me at any time. I don’t know if his demeanor is what the doctor ordered when he would be confronted with the likes of Vladimir Putin and the rest of the tough-as-nails and/or wacko world leaders. A tour of duty at the United Nations might make him a little tougher.

Senator Rand Paul is someone who I was initially attracted to but his isolationist point of view gives me pause.

Governors Huckabee and Bush - three words sum up a majority of the problems I have with them - Immigration and common core. I have expressed my opinion on them here previously and nothing has changed my mind.

Governor Walker seems like a nice guy but I am a little tired of hearing about how he fought the unions in Wisconsin. Seems to be sort of a one trick pony.

Governor Kasich is the bleeding heart liberal on the stage and might as well become a Democrat.

Let’s see what shakes out in the next few weeks.
