obama's legacy

Obama's legacy is a nuclear arms race in the middle east among our former client states Egypt. Saudi Arabia, Jordan et  al. who are now dancing with the Russians to obtain nuclear materials. Can I fault them?  Hell no. They no longer trust the United States to help protect them from Iranian supported terrorists. They look at our cavalier disregard for long term ally  Israel  and see the withdrawal of our president from an active role in the politics of the world and his retreat to a belief that he can be the great healer to reconcile Islam and the West. After all he declared the war was over but nobody told the opposition who continue tthei terrorist acts.

Suppose They Held an Election and Nobody Came

The presidential race is embarrassing. The best the parties can produce is a bombastic egotist,a lady who used political position to enrich herself, her  foundation , her husband and daughter and tried to hide her machinations by using a private e-mail server eg a liar, and a seventy six year old socialist who hasn't outgrown his 1930's  perspectives. Who can one vote for ? I guess the young and naive and the old and jaded can believe any of these wretched candidates can serve as  president. I can't. I will not be part of this farce. In a world needing adult judgement none of these clowns and crooks can serve . What is the fare to Australia.
