How’s That Obama Doctrine Working?

It’s working exactly as predicted, according to The Wall Street Journal

    OMG… who’d every think that we would ever have another person in office would make Carter look presidential.

    Japan is melting and being swallowed up by the sea gods… but Obama just wants to play golf and meet with lots of young college girls.

    nothing wrong there.
