This afternoon I caught the joint news conference between France’s Hollande and President Obama. At one point the question of the war in Syria arose. I was astonished at the long and deep answer that President Obama gave. It was replete with statistics and nuance as if it were from a political science university professor. I thought of George Bush during the reply and shook my head in dismay. Then I tried to picture some bumpkin like Rand Paul or Ted Cruz standing next to the French president. I nearly gaged at the thought!
yet there are millions of Americans who would replace President Obama in a heartbeat with one of those right-wing boobs. The thought paralyzed me!
