Not the role of his lifetime, thus far ...

Remember the scene in The Godfather in which Don Corleone slaps Johnny Fontane and tells him to "Act like a man!"? Sometimes I think someone in the White House needs to give President Obama a slap and tell him to "Act like a President!" (Perhaps Hillary Clinton could do it. I mean, she does have the biggest pair o' balls - so I've heard - of any senior member of the Obama Administration.)

The Bill of Particulars against ol' B. Hussein as a non-President is long and growing. It was bad enough when he ceded authority for the now ill-fated stimulus, as well as health care, er, health insurance reform, to the liberal barons who control the U.S. House and Senate; and it was bad enough when he decided to go on an unemployment "listening tour," instead of actually doing something to actually alleviate unemployment.

Lately, however, Obama's been dicking and dithering -- and fucking bowing -- around in ways that make us all less safe. That should scare the you-know-what out of us all.

First of all, absolutely no good will come from trying Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and other "9/11" terrorists in a civilian court in NYC. Given that KSM and his cohorts' lawyers have promised to turn the proceedings into a spectacle in which "enhanced interrogation," the George W. Bush Administration, and the entire War on Terror is put on trial; and given that NYC is gonna be a perfect target for terrorist activity before, during, and after the KSM spectacle; and given that it's not entirely out of the realm of impossibility that KSM et al. could be found not guilty ... there is absolutely no excuse for Obama to allow his attorney general to proceed with his self-proclaimed "Trial of the Century."

Breaking news this evening tells us that Obama will address the nation next week to announce how he intends to bring the Afghan War to a successful conclusion. At least I think he's gonna talk about "success" and "victory" and the like. Nevertheless, Obama was told by the generals who're fighting the Necessary War back in August that they needed more troops or their cause would soon be lost. The President has been holding meetings and councils -- and he's been lending way too big an ear (no pun intended) to his bumbling Vice President's assertions that the Taliban can be defeated with CIA drones, Navy SEALs, G.I. Joe and nothing else. Obama's fucking around on Afghanistan surely has given hope to the Taliban that the U.S. will soon abandon the battlefield. (Such fucking around certainly didn't boost the morale of U.S. troops as dozens of their brothers died while Obama dithered.)

Obama could do two things next week during his prime time address next week to make me admire him a whole hell of a lot more than I do right now: First, announce that KSM and his brothers in terror will be judged by military tribunals; and second, announce that Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal's counter-insurgency plan will be fully implemented, with 40,000 troops being the floor of the Afghan Surge.
