We can’t take care of our own soldiers. How’s Obamacare going to work?

Amidst the fury over an administration too scared to send rapid response troops to Benghazi, an administration using the IRS as a Chicago-style thug to intimidate Tea Party, 9/12 and Patriot organizations, and a DOJ casting a worried net over 100 reporters when the AP scooped them by a day, come this matter of recurring inept operations. Remember also the Boston Marathon bomber was missed on a no-fly list because his name was misspelled.
The CEO of this fine United States of America is notably absent.
Berlin Wall anniversary? Not so much.
How’s that for priorities?
The president’s problem isn’t that he is too visible; it’s the lack of content in what he says when he keeps showing up on the tube. Obama can seem a mite too impressed with his own aura, as if his presence on the stage is the Answer. There is, at times, a self-referential (even self-reverential) tone in his big speeches. They are heavily salted with the words “I” and “my.” (He used the former 11 times in the first few paragraphs of his address to the U.N. last week.) Obama is a historic figure, but that is the beginning, not the end, of the story.
After the world wide embarrassment bestowed upon Scotland after the release of the only convicted Lockerbie murderer back to Libya, Britain decided to release all documents on the topic.
Until the Obama administration put a halt to it. Wonder why?
The Scottish government told FOX News Tuesday that the U.S. government refuses to allow them to release details of any communication between Scotland and the U.S. over al-Megrahi’s release.
Wow, it sure didn’t take long for Obama’s administration to find their voice of outrage over the constitutional arrest of Honduran President Zelaya!
Read Fausta’s amazing round-up of what happened here. In a nutshell, Zelaya wanted another term as president so he decided to hold a popular referendum on whether he should be eligible. Minor problem: The Honduran constitution can’t be amended by popular referendum so the country’s supreme court ordered the vote canceled. Zelaya tried to go ahead with it anyway. Literally every other arm of the Honduran government — judiciary, legislature, military — was against him, to the point where the troops who arrested him this morning were evidently acting on a court order.
This after such a tepid response to peaceful demonstrators being shot by the Iranian government.
