The Chinese have a proverb: “may you live in interesting times.” Well, my fellow countrymen and women, ponder these events of the last 48 hours. Russian President Vladimir Putin’s op-ed in the New York Times where he chastises America regarding following international law, the use of brute force, and downplaying our concept of exceptionalism – on that point he agrees with Obama. Syrian President Bashar al-Assad accuses America of arming and supporting Islamic terrorists and threatens to not surrender his chemical weapons unless we abandon any pursuit of military action. Lastly, today, the head of the AFL-CIO, Richard Trumka, will meet with the President and Vice-President over Obamacare, demanding it be fixed or repealed unless they get a tax subsidy for their membership. Now what option do you think Obama will take? Elections have severe consequences and now we see what a second term of Jimmy Carter would have looked like. America will survive this folly into liberal progressive socialist weakness, but it is going to hurt.
