Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Obama Was Wrong About Being Wrong

Obama recently said that the biggest mistake of his presidency was in not planning for what came after Qaddafi in Libya.

I would say, "Bullshit."

His biggest mistake was in not prosecuting those in the Bush Administration who had advocated for and carried out torture.  Followed closely by his decision not to arrest, convict and imprison the Banksters who broke the world.  That decision has empowered the populist right and left and threatened the stability of our entire political system.

The Libyans broke Libya.  Obama let the people who broke America get off the hook.
