I'm sorry

I'm sorry our President feels the need to apologize to the world for the United States. He apologized to the Argentinians* yesterday. I suspect he apologized to the Castros earlier in the week too. After all, if it wasn't for the US inventing baseball, the murdering thug Che would not have had a baseball stadium for his executions.

In Argentina Obama said he is sorry we did not do more about human rights abuses. In those days the democrats and the public had enough of interfering in the internal strife of other nations. We had just finished in Vietnam.

I used to dismiss it out of hand when Obama's critics accused him of hating this country and all it stands for. Not any more. No wonder Trump's campaign theme of making America great again resonates with so many.

If Obama wants to apologize for the human rights violation leftists/progressives/socialists/communists perpetrated in this same era in Vietnam, North Korea, Cambodia, the USSR, Communist China, Angola, Nicaragua, El Salvador, East Germany, or Yugoslavia that might be worth listening to.

* no link, the story makes me sick and sad.

That's pretty rich, given that the Peronistas -- not particularly well-known for their stance on human rights -- have run Argentina off and on since the 1940's. And that last husband/wife pair who ran things till late last year kind of took the cake. Their current president might actually do Argentina some good, at least until the Peronistas catch their breath again.

I am not sure how Trumph would do as a President, but compared the rest and current piss poor excuse I will take a chance.

Howdy Bill!

If the G.O.P. is patient enough to wait until 2025 for their next chance to assume the presidency, then they should by all means nominate The Donald. By the way, did the elder Trump, after attempting to plumb the depths of his son's store of knowledge, ever try to get the college tuition money refunded?

On a serious note: Has EO'B permanently ceased posting into her weblog? It's been a while.

Hello Donn.

I am not bill. Never have been.

A quick perusal of posts would show I'm in the none of the above camp so far this election season. I will make up my mind as the process goes on. The Jndiana primary is in May.
