And anybody who expects Dear Leader to actually do anything

other than give a speech and try to otherwise ignore it, is a fool.
The New York Times recently wrote that it is difficult to distinguish between Putin's and Obama's Syria strategies. Meanwhile, historian and journalist Michael Ignatieff and Brookings Institution fellow Leon Wieseltier lamented in the Washington Post, "It's time for those who care about the moral standing of the United States to say that this policy is shameful." 

It is very clear at this point that the US has no strategy beyond its half-hearted efforts to provide training and arms to rebels -- and to otherwise rely on negotiations. But none of this has born any fruit, as events in early February demonstrated.
He'll shine the light of his Presence on everything, say some words, his worshippers will swoon again, and NOTHING will actually get done.  Because I don't think he actually gives a damn. 

Government-run health care: where the patients count for nothing, but keeping the brass happy is everything.  And when they're incompetent or criminal, or both, the worst they have to fear is a transfer.

One more reason to close the Department of Education.  As if we needed any more.

This administration and all its little friends want someone who loses or has a gun stolen to be treated like criminals; wonder if they'll demand the same treatment for the DHS clowns involved?
Yeah, I know, stupid question.
The letter was prompted after the news website Complete Colorado reported last month that DHS marked 1,300 badges, 589 cell phones and scores of firearms lost or stolen between 2012 and 2015. DHS’s poor firearms security “shows that the department is consistently unable to safeguard sensitive property,” the congressmen wrote.

“The fact that hundreds of badges and cell phones are missing gives rise to a variety of different security threat possibilities,” the letter said. “It is particularly troubling, however, that the department cannot account for its entire inventory of firearms.”
Hmm... I find myself wondering just what all firearms they cannot account for.
