The More Things Change, The More They Stay The Same

TGIF Beatdowners!

Let's take a quick trip back to December, 2007.

"The president does not have power under the constitution to unitarily authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent attack on the nation."

Do you know who said that?

A young man from Chicago, Illinois who happened to be running for President of the United States.

That's right.  President Obama said those very words, as part of his campaign...his campaign that focused on saying how God-awful the then-current administration was.

And yet here we are, 3 years and 3 months later, and he's chucking Tomahawk cruise missiles into Libya.

Don't get me wrong, Moammar Gadhafi is a nut job and needs to go.  Bravo to the US and our Allies for the action.

But seriously...THIS is what's wrong with the political landscape today; President Obama campaigned SO hard against President Bush and his decisions, especially on military action.

And when he's the Commander in Chief, he makes a call that would have unquestionably crucified W.

It's garbage.

It's a game to the trolls in DC.

It's not to me.

And it shouldn't be to you.

The two party system is broken.  All it is anymore is "where image takes precedence over wisdom, Where sound bite politics are served to the fastfood culture, Where straight teeth in your mouth are more important than the words that come out of it (Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy, Television, The Drug of the Nation)".

Enough is enough.

Term limits.

Of the people, By the people.


Until next time...Keep on rockin' in the free world.
