If you plan to stomach the State of the Union’s parade of poster children Tuesday night you probably already know what to expect. There will be a lot of talk about guns. Talk about jobs. Talk about the Affordable Care Act. If Obama wants to take a chance, he might even congratulate himself for his nuclear deal with Iran.
The wait is finally over. Beginning today, the world community can see how Iran intends to honor the deal it cut with the West. Hopefully, those who negotiated the terms appreciate the humor in the news of Iran’s new ICBM test and North Korea’s laughable request for a peace treaty.1 Kim Jong-un may be crazy, but he’s paying attention.
The chubby-faced whelp holding America and a good bit of the world in suspense with his lunatic ramblings could be one of America’s best friends. Our allies swear to support us when the press cameras flash, may come through in a pinch, and might even cough up a little cash when the world community decides to rescue the helpless in some out of the way hellhole, but let’s be honest.
Wow. President Obama got a medal from Israel. That must have been a comfortable moment, put on the spot on Israeli turf with a vow to defend the small¹ against longtime Muslim foes. The president knows that whatever happens in the Middle East, the U.S. is not going to do anything until after the fact except listen to John Kerry drone on in hopes of putting everyone involved into a coma.
