Lead By Children

So, in the wake of the dual embassy attacks in Cairo and Benghazi, we find out that The SCOAMT had not met with his security council in at least a week prior to 9/11.  Meanwhile, the Malfeasant Media were all fawning over his "successes" in the middle east.  If that weren't enough, we find out that the embassy in Benghazi was not actually guarded by Marines, as it should have been; that duty had been contracted out to a local security force.

Now, I could say many things about this.  In fact, I opined on it to some extent earlier, but I think there's something else that we need to be clear on.

We're being lead by a Child with a sense of entitlement the size of Jupiter, and all the political acumen of a retarded potato.  With apologies to the mentally retarded, as well as to potatoes.

What?  Did they think all the bad people had gone away?  Did they think that the apparently omnipotent George W Bush had defeated terrorists and they didn't have to be on guard anymore?  Did they believe their own press about the Muslim world now loving us because of Barky's apology tour?

These are a child's beliefs.  Grown ups know that the world is a dangerous place, and that we must be on guard.  We take notice of our surroundings and circumstances, and we either avoid places and times of extra danger, or we take extra precautions we can't avoid them.  Grown ups wouldn't have been surprised by multiple "protests" (read: attacks) on the anniversary of 9/11. 

Children believe that everything is safe because Mom and Dad will keep them safe.  Children don't think twice of jumping out of a tree, because they know Mom or Dad will catch them.  Children are oblivious to their surroundings, knowing that Mom and Dad wouldn't take them somewhere dangerous.

The world is a dangerous place.  There are people who hate us and want to kill us.  Many of those people now revere September 11 as a sort of holy day which they celebrate by killing more of us.  We have enemies.

We need an adult to lead us, not a child.
