I'm Not The Only One...

The U.K. Telegraph's Toby Harnden captures the essence of what was wrong with President Obama's speech to the nation in the aftermath of the Fort Hood massacre: "Completely missing was the eloquence that Mr Obama employs when talking about himself."


Apparently I wasn't the only one who was struck by the sheer incongruity and inappropriateness of President Obama's speech.

He's a young man; he'll mature. Let's hope he does so while he's still in office. And, in the interim, let's hope he surrounds himself with a higher grade of advisors going forward. (Come to think of it, Obama's ill-choiced advisors is probably another post for another day.)

Meanwhile, for Christians reading this, let's remember the apostle's admonition, "Pray for those in authority".

And that's the way the US-gazing Ball bounces.
