A plan to survive the Obama years

Z. Dwight Billingsly writes in the St Louis Dispatch of his plan to survive the Obama years.  He makes a couple of points that are worth quoting:  (HT: Gateway Pundit)

Bill Kristol, writing in The Weekly Standard, reminded me that every 16 years we get a Democrat president with no experience in national security or international affairs who’s elected after Republican presidents have made and kept America safe: After Eisenhower, we got Kennedy; after Nixon/Ford, we got Carter; after Reagan/Bush, we got Clinton. And after Bush II, we get Barack Obama.

That’s not to say that Obama’s election doesn’t come with a couple of interesting side effects. For example, henceforth no black man in America may be called unqualified for any job that he might seek, no matter his prior education or experience level. Want to be a nuclear scientist but lack a Ph.D. in physics? If the applicant is a black man, it’s no problem. Just offer hope to the profession and promise change from all those stuffy theorems that have given the discipline its structure over the years, and you’re in.

Ouch.  Here’s the link.

  2. Sophismata, the pingback above, repeats the charge that Bush did not take the al Qaeda threat seriously and let it happen, even though the previous administration actually had an opportunity to get bin Laden handed to them on silver platter. That is what one would call selective memory.

    What Bush did do is repspond to a terrorist attack, unlike Clinton with the Khobar Towers attack, the embassy attacks, and the USS Cole attack. Selective memory.

    Bush was a lousy president on many fronts, spending money like a liberal, but he did keep another attack from happening on his watch (so far).
