My Skills Have Failed Me

I like to think that I speak politician pretty well and that I have mad skills at deciphering punditry.

For example;

When Sen. Minority Leader Mitch McConnell claims to understand what the American people want; I know that what he really means is this is what his pollsters have told him to say or what the lobbyist cohorts of his wife want him to say.

When House Speaker John Boehner talks about being serious in dealing with the federal deficit; I know that he only cares about it when there is a Democrat in the White House, because his record shows no such seriousness anytime during his career.

When Associate Supreme Justice Clarence Thomas speaks during oral arguments I know that…..Now wait! he has not spoken in 5 terms. Well then, I know that his mind is made up and nothing anyone says is going to change his mind.

When Donald Trump speaks about how awful China is; I know that he has been unable to break into the Chinese market or he has not been able to obtain a significant amount of Chinese investors.

But, I need some help deciphering the below statement. I really cannot figure out what her point is.

“And nobody yet has, nobody yet has explained to the American public what they know, and surely they know more than the rest of us know who it is who will be taking the place of Mubarak and no, not, not real enthused about what it is that that’s being done on a national level and from DC in regards to understanding all the situation there in Egypt. And, in these areas that are so volatile right now, because obviously it’s not just Egypt but the other countries too where we are seeing uprisings, we know that now more than ever, we need strength and sound mind there in the White House. We need to know what it is that America stands for so we know who it is that America will stand with. And, we do not have all that information yet.”

  1. Sorry, can't be of any help here. I was as baffled as you.

  2. You were one of my hopes! Oh Well!

  3. It is simple: we have an empty suit in the White House who has not made a coherent statement on the turmoil that is occuring in the Middle East and whose only statement on unrest in Wisconsin is that he feels it is 'union busting' instead of an attempt to 'share the pain' and be fiscally responsible and balance a state budget.

    Now THAT is great leadership right?

  4. Really? POTUS was universally praised by Republicans and Democrats for his statements about what is happening in the Middle East and North Africa - Unless you only watch FOX news of course. What would you have him do Cry, Scream and yell, or better yet Invade these countries and force democracy at the end of a gun? That has worked out so well in Afghanistan and Iraq.

    Thanks for reading and commenting on my little blog - Hope to hear from you again - it's even more fun when you let us know who you are - but if not - thanks for joining the conversation
