Words' Evasions

Pres. B+ quoted his inaugural address. "On that day," he said, "I made it very clear our nation is at war against a far-reaching network of violence and hatred, and that we will do whatever it takes to defeat them. . . . And make no mistake, that's exactly what we've been doing."

This is just more adulterated bullshit from the B+ in chief who, it seems to me, believes words are actions. And subsequently he uses them as proxies for real actions. "We have previously addressed our position on flatted tires, and it's time for the partisan Pirelli attacks to cease." Gag me.

Others, (Powerline et. al.) have noted the B+ in chief took four days to reply to the Christmas attack, but only four hours to whine at Dick Cheney's calling him out. These evasions are very very lethal to liberty. The man cannot speak plainly and it is obvious he simply does not have it in himself to do so. In this respect I am reminded of someone I know who believes that all the miracles of the Lord Jesus Christ, and of all the Communion of Saints are pathologies. He has built for himself a very convenient reason to dismiss all things supernatural. Mr. B+ has built the same with words, excusing him from the need to have, and act, with true courage. The occasional spit suffices.
