Wish me luck
Second date with a guy tonight. Early dinner and “The Time Travelers Wife”. He seems like a nice guy so far, although I may not be the best judge of character at the moment. Unemployed, bored, lonely and horny may be clouding my perceptions but we will see. 😛
Update – Things went OK, he is a very nice guy and one of my afflictions is temporarily resolved. Not sure if there will be a third date though. I kind of got the feeling that his expectations had been met. Guess we’ll see. On the bright side if there isn’t at least I didn’t have to go to the movie alone. (That’s a joke) It was funny though – here we were in this romantic movie and he was sitting very still like he was afraid to touch me, I finally had to lean into him a bit before he got the hint. I shouldn’t complain though my ex hadn’t taken me to a movie in a couple years and Mr. X has a nice solid build. It felt good. One other problem – Obama voter. I think he just assumes I am too and I didn’t really feel like opening that can of worms yet, but f we do have a third date it is going to have to be addressed. Well that’s enough of that.
Speaking of Obama – Did I read the paper correctly? Did he really order the Pentagon to prepare to drastically cut our nuclear arsenal and lay the groundwork for losing “The War That Must Be Won” / “The Central Front In The War On Terror”? This really is scary. At this point I think he is out Cartering Carter, although the Telegraph is a little more forgiving –
Indeed, he deserves praise for spending so much time on thankless foreign policy issues. He is tackling all the big problems: restarting Middle East peace talks, defanging Iran and North Korea and a “reset” of relations with Russia. But none of them are working.
Regimes in Moscow, Pyongyang and Tehran simply pocket his concessions and carry on as before. The picture emerging from the White House is a disturbing one, of timidity, clumsiness and short-term calculation. Some say he is the weakest president since Jimmy Carter.
I disagree. I think the only reason that he hasn’t given away the Panama Canal is because Carter did 30 years ago, so Alaska should probably watch out.
Riehl World View calls him dangerous and irresponsible. I think it’s worse. I think he is dangerous and naive. I honestly think he believes that on the strength of his highly overrated oratory he can do whatever he wants with no regard for consequences. And why shouldn’t he? No on has challenged him on anything until recently and that phenomenon is still recent enough to have not sunk in.
