Only Hope -- It Would Only Be One Hellish Four-Year Term

Hi, Jennifer.

Glad to see you've been doing lots of writing.

Yes, eerie.

My first thought, when I read the words "Iranian hostages" on your post, was the British Naval Hostages, and how the British allowed themselves to be so devastatingly humiliated. A'Jad is demonically clever, knew exactly how far he could push them, and took full advantage of that.

How would he deal with Obama, and how would Obamacarter handle it? (Not even to mention how he would deal with the nuclear issues.)

I read somewhere that George Soros has $40 Million ready to go for the campaign -- but I'll bet it's much more.

The only hope is that it's very likely it would only be for one hellish four-year term. Bad choice of the particular four years though.

Assuming that President Bush was talking about him when he referred to "appeasement" during the Knesset speech, was so revealing. Now he's backing off his impetuous statement about talking directly to A'Jad without preconditions. He's changed it to having prior talks through lower ranking diplomats. Whichever way the wind blows. Without much thought, he says whatever seems to be advantageous and "cool" at the moment, and then after being chastised, changes it. Same with his statement about bombing Pakistan.

His latest gross-out was to say that Americans can't eat so much, use gas so much, and etc., and expect people in other countries to say that's O.K. I can just imagine a Presidential candidate in any other country saying such a thing to their people....

That's his personality in a nutshell ... it's all about pleasing other people ... getting approval ... then it flips to petulance, and is sorely lacking in substance, real backbone or good judgment. Kind of like a teenager.

And that's the least of what to expect regarding the enormous challenges that are ahead.
