In a fit of temper a couple of weeks ago, Obama told Republican House Leader Eric Cantor: “DON’T CALL MY BLUFF” . . . My first thought was – What the hell is he talking about?
My second thought was . . . is the President actually bluffing?
On Monday night, July 25, 2011 . . . as Obama yet again went on television to address the people in what was another of his CRISIS speeches; it became absolutely clear that what he had said to Cantor was in fact, that the President was indeed BLUFFING.
What I also saw on television Monday night was NOT a Commander-In-Chief confidently leading his nation, but rather, a feeble, frustrated and angry man who was desperately void of ideas.
In Obama’s first two years as President, he enjoyed what was in reality far more than just a FREE RIDE. Obama enjoyed the unquestioning support of a compliant media that not only ignored his faults and blunders, but who were only too happy to be complicit in hiding them.
He also had to deal with a weak and disorganized Republican Party recovering from the beating they took in 2008.
BUT THAT WAS THEN . . . AND THIS IS NOW.
As I have repeatedly written and said a great many times in my editorials and broadcasts literally from the day Obama became President, that he will be a ONE-TIMER, and before his first and ONLY term will be up, he will be reviled by most Americans, INCLUDING many within his own Party.
This was not a hard prediction to make, since the writing was on the wall for Obama, for anyone to see who wanted to see it.
My worries then, as they are now, weren’t whether or not he would have a second term, but how much damage this PIECE-OF-WORK would do before he would be dumped as America’s WORST President ever.
And if anyone had any doubts about Obama’s near future before Monday Night’s Televised Debacle, they should have none now, since what we all saw on national television on all the networks was a spectacle of a failed narcissist, flailing like a man who can’t swim in water way over his head, with no one out there to throw him a lifesaver.
SPECIAL NOTES – I LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU . . .
1 – I receive a mountain of emails, which I try to read and respond to. But, I simply do not have time to read long letters. So, if an email to me is too long, I most probably won’t read it.
2 – I don’t necessarily have a detailed response for every email I receive. But, if you receive a reply from me that simply says Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov, it means that I’ve read what you’ve sent to me.
3 – Please do NOT include me in your email “conversations” with others. It clogs my In-Box and does nothing to add to the “debate”. And if I receive these ‘threads’ I usually respond by BLOCKING SENDER.
4 – I appreciate it when people send me pertinent information that adds to the debate. But I do NOT appreciate being FLOODED with links and forwards to other sites. I simply do not have the time to read them.
So, unless you have a link to something that is important to the issues we deal with, please don’t send it.
5 – Sometimes my In-Box is so full that I cannot respond. When that happens, please do not take it personally. It’s just that I’m overwhelmed.
6 – To all the EDITORS out there who feel compelled to offer spelling and grammatical corrections to my editorials – THANK YOU.
7 – FINALLY . . . Thank you to the people who contribute to this Web Site, and to our efforts through your financial support. It is very much appreciated.
Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov
