One thing you can say about Obama – he sure knows how to announce things. Of course, those things never get done, but he knows that you aren’t keeping track. All you will remember is that Obama did this or that – without actually doing anything.
He is our first Post-Reality President. All he has to do is announce, and ta-dah! it is done.
So here he is promising to kick some ass. Of course, no ass-kicking will ever take place. All this is, is a PR stunt to show you that GRRRR – Mr. Lincoln is angry.
But is this the way we want Presidents to talk?
