The Syria fallout, the perception that it took Vlad Putin to rescue the President's bacon and our reduced standing in the world...
Amrican prog-left has always hoped for diminished global influence so I imagine they're pretty pleased at the moment, right?— Dean R. Riehm (@deanriehm) September 13, 2013
Hi, American prog-left, u knew diminished global influence wz going to b accomplished via your poster boy being totally incompetent, right?— Dean R. Riehm (@deanriehm) September 13, 2013
Sorry, lefties, diminished power was not going to be achieved by a CinC who knew what the hell he was doing. It just doesn't work that way.— Dean R. Riehm (@deanriehm) September 13, 2013
C'mon, gang, you all didn't think that diminished global influence would be the result of deliberate planning and competence, did you?— Dean R. Riehm (@deanriehm) September 13, 2013
And speaking of the extremists that are apparently running the Republican party...
It bears repeating: Looking fwd to 2016 and Hillary defending Dem's embrace of drone assassinations, indef. detention & domestic spying.— Dean R. Riehm (@deanriehm) September 13, 2013

Think about it: no one really gives this much thought or concern anymore. Obama has simply doubled down on every single dubious Bush program that was established for the ostensible purpose of combating terror and now it's just a ho-hum fact of life... but it's the tea partiers that are the wackos.
We will be asking the following on a regular basis:

Another red-zone fumble on Sunday for our Chargers' lead tailback...
The Chargers moved up to get this guy in the first round of the 2010 draft to be LaDanian Tomlinson's replacement. Going into his 4th year, he has busted off but one 30+ yarder... for his entire career. No explosiveness, no home run-hitting ability... all he does is fumble and get injured. Time to cut bait and move on.
As career shipbuilders, we found this tres cool:

That Putin Op-ed in the New York Times was something, huh?
Obama: “I don't think Mr. Putin has same values that we do." // Putin: "Yeah I know. I thought I was clear about it in the NYT." @JohnEkdahl— NumbersMuncher (@NumbersMuncher) September 15, 2013
Obama's "values" jab, I suppose, means Putin wouldn't drone-wack one of his own citizens. #Syria— Dean R. Riehm (@deanriehm) September 15, 2013

When you lose the Washington Post...
For a straight news article it was about as cutting a take-down as we have read in quite some time.

Another question we will continue to ask:
Why hasn't Pat Smith been afforded by MSM the same "absolute moral authority" as was Cindy Sheehan? #Benghazi— Dean R. Riehm (@deanriehm) September 16, 2013
You saw what happened there, didn't you. A few years back, the President said something along the lines of "Americans see themselves 'exceptional' just as Greeks see themselves as 'exceptional'" demonstrating he has no idea what the concept meant Then, in his speech last Tuesday, he used "American exceptionalism" as a justification for intervening kinda sorta in Syria. Weird, we know.
Fortunately, the President had some proxy defenders against that big meany Vlad Putin who referenced the term in his Op-Ed:

The Washington Navy Yard shooting... damn...
And in case anyone was wondering where our loyalties lay...
I guess what I'm trying to say, Preezy, is though you may be a devisive, bungling, incompetent pol you're still my President. #F**kVlad— Dean R. Riehm (@deanriehm) September 16, 2013
And then he goes and does something like this:
http://t.co/iJXrzA1eFd Preezy, you're simply a divisive pol. Nothing more, nothing less. It's cool - just f**king own it.— Dean R. Riehm (@deanriehm) September 18, 2013
Why does he make it so hard?
Interesting choice of words to describe what's happening all over the country in response to having to comply with ObamaCare:

OK, gang, that's it for now. Ciao!
