In another two weeks Obama becomes the President of the United States. I can't help but feel that one of the most incompetent administrations in US history is about to take over the reins of government. That it will be supported by such clowns as Al Franken, who appears to have successfully stolen the senatorial election in Minnesota, is appropriate.
Now hype and hoopla will no longer save the day. Obama and his team of Clinton retreads will have to face the real world and perform. Obama hasn't said much about the Israeli-Hamas conflict, ostensibly because Bush is still the President and he's not yet. However, I fear that he hasn't said anything because he doesn't have a clue as to what to say. Will the Obama Administration be frozen by indecision? Paralysis by analysis? Will Obama reply to the daunting questions of current events with a question of his own, "Why can't I just eat my waffle?" We shall see.
Meanwhile, Israel seems to be taking advantage of the time remaining in the Bush Administration to wipe out the den of vipers known as Hamas. I am gratified and surprised to see that Israel hasn't yielded to international pressure to stop killing these terrorists; they are pressing on as if they are actually serious about finishing the job instead of apologizing for their own existence. You'd think the Israeli leadership grew gonads or something. I'm shocked beyond belief. But I approve. Keep up the skeer, Israel! (That's a quote from my favorite Civil War General and no, his uniform wasn't blue.)
