VFR and Obama
I have not been posting nearly as much about the actions of the Obama administration as might have been expected. One reason for this is that the badness of what Obama is doing, and the amount of it, and the complexity of it, is overwhelming and I frankly find it hard to take it in and form a view of it. When every day there are things being done by the administration that are off the chart, outside the scope of anything ever done by a U.S. president, how do you find adequate words to describe it and do it justice?
And when we combine this with the fact that Obama is extremely popular according to opinion polls, with 73 percent saying that he “cares about people like me,” meaning that three quarters of Americans feel that this manifest anti-American president represents people like them, I frankly find it hard to get a handle on the situation.
Here’s the latest, which I found at Lucianne.com this morning. ABC has released the names to two CIA agents involved in interrogating Zubadya and Khalil Sheikh Muhammad. Meaning that someone in the CIA leaked this to ABC.

As I said recently, if I had foreseen how extreme he would really be, my decision process back in November would have been very different. I cannot say definitely that the result of the decison process would have been different, though it might have been. Please read again the reasons why I thought that electing McCain would put us in an even worse position in the long run than electing Obama.Mark P. writes:
I don’t think voting for McCain would’ve made anything better. I did vote for him, but whenever anyone asks me, I tell them that I did not vote at all, that I did not like either candidate.
