Dear Mr. President

We are all set to hear you speechify this evening about why we need to spend American treasure and lives to intervene in a civil war in Syria.  I am more interested in the why now? The cynic in me remembers how Bill Clinton bombed an aspirin factory when the Monica Lewinski affair first came to light and words keep popping in my brain: Benghazi, NSA spying on Americans, using the IRS to target political opponents, Fast and Furious, Growing discontent over ObamaCare, declining workforce, unemployment in the minority community, Keystone XL Pipeline, sluggish economy, assaults on the Second Amendment, skyrocketing electricity costs...Why?, indeed.

I assume, Mr. Obama, you will be boxing up that Peace Prize and shipping back to the Nobel people this week? More importantly, I just have to know how all of this is Bush's fault.

I will never cease to be amazed at how war-like the anti-war people are when a Democrat is President. Put a Republican in, and they find a million friends to fill the streets to protest for peace, but with a Democrat in, their eyes fill with blood lust, and they become Viking berserkers.

Only in a world with a communist Kenyan installed at U.S. leader can you gin up a scenario where a Russian pseudo-dictator, who was a former Soviet KGB Secret Police chief, is able to come forth as the compassionate bringer of peace, dissuading the Light Bringer, who was installed as President with a Nobel Peace Prize already in hand as a reward for defeating the war-like Republicans, from throwing missiles willy-nilly into a country in civil war as an ape would fling his feces.

Maybe if I go on a drunk, this would all seem logical.
