Defining the Obama Presidency

Rarely has there been a cartoon that defines a presidency as well as this one does.

It's humiliating to have a president who always does the wrong thing no matter what. The "screw ups" if that is what they are, happen with such predictable regularity, that it's difficult to believe that they are not contrived.

We live in a dangerous world and we need somebody at the helm who has the guts to make tough decisions and who will surround the presidency with hard people capable of making hard choices. I think that Fiorina and possibly Trump can do it. Rubio -- too much of a puss. Carson has the capacity but it will take some time to get him up to speed.

Clearly Obama, even after seven years, is not ready for prime time.


Sicario (Movie Review)


Sicario is right up there with Man on Fire for narco movies. Which means it has earned a 9 out of a possible 10. Outside of the first five minutes, it was an accurate depiction in a situational sense. I give the film makers very high marks.


It's a tense film. But it's a much better film than I went to the theater expecting to see.
