I really have to hold back the urge to hurl
Does the bastard have to sound like a freaking slimy used car salesman, croaking out hoary, stale, and ridiculous statements like this (you can practically hear his voice, like nails on a chalkboard):
“Their resolve is as strong as my resolve. And that is, we will not yield to these people, will not yield to the terrorists.”
“We will find them. We will bring them to justice. And at the same time we will spread an ideology of hope and compassion that will overwhelm their ideology of hate.”
It’s like Rove or Darth Cheney turned the key in his back and out comes the stock cowboy pile of steaming, flaming sh*t, exploiting the situation to puff out his chest and pretend to be a leader, instead of The Pet Goat. He’d be the deer in the headlights again if it happened here, but no he can coast on this one, and sadly for us, watch the sheeple polls rise again.
