As Rob can probably attest to, blogging can be a love/hate kind of thing. There are stretches where you love it and, whether it’s for your own psychological well-being or just the desire to share a part of yourself with others, you and the blog are moving in perfect concert with one another. Other times, you’ve got writer’s block and wondering what the hell you’re going to say, knowing only that the blog, like the hound out in the back yard or that stray cat that shows up at your door every now and then, is hungry and needs to be fed.

This was one of those weeks. Between getting chewed up and spit out by my India team and trying to get the new PC online, the blog was just another hassle issue needing resolution in a weeks where 24 hours wasn’t enough in a day, but I didn’t really feel motivated to write, either. I mean, what to say? Complain about Barack Obama’s absence of leadership during the crisis in Libya (thank God we have Sarah Palin), or while gas prices are really jumping at the pump, or while this country is facing a real civil war in the battles between the states and the public-sector unions. This nation has never been more polarized – politically, emotionally, and psychologically. There are real, and I mean real, hard times – historically so – on the horizon, but what’s Obama doing? Celebrating “Motown Day” at the White House. This guy is a joke.

And speaking of easy targets, Tiger Woods getting tossed in the first round of the Accenture Match Play? I already told y’all that, for all intents and purposes, we’ve seen the last of Tiger as a dominating force on the PGA Tour. Oh, Michelle Wie finished second at a LPGA event in Thailand last weekend, but, until she starts winning regularly (something she will never do) she will remain a wasted talent. Besides Lexi Thompson has already proven she can play with the big boys – and win (that’s right, Michelle!). And she’s only like, what, 16?

The Red Sox start playing actual spring training games, but that’s next week.

Charlie Sheen is back out of rehab, and Lindsay Lohan is being threatened with jail again.

See? You really don’t have to blog daily – nothing ever really changes.

But I am glad to be back, promise I’ll post at least a little something each day. After all, I can’t leave all the spoils to Rob and Dave E, now can I? 🙂

  1. I give Obama a pass on the Motown thing. You know what they say about all work and no play. I’m probably a little more sensitive to that than most because I heard the same thing repeated over and over and over and over after Katrina. “With all the work that needs to be done in New Orleans, why are the residents so concerned about the Saints and the SuperDome?”. Brief respites are not a luxury. They’re a necessity.

  2. From what? Doing nothing and fiddling while Libya burns? You know your administration is in trouble when even Dana Milbank of the Washington Post goes after you not one, but twice in the same week about Obama’s pathetic excuse for a tepid response in Libya.


    Hillary Clinton was right about that 3 AM call. This president hasn’t a clue about what it means to the the so-called “leader of the free world”, but he sure enjoys the perks that go along with it.

    Barack Obama is a pathetic shell of an excuse for a leader. Slowly, even the media who has kissed his ass for four years is starting to get it as well.

  3. One of the pundits said recently the tepid response was due to the administration trying to evacuate the remaining Americans. Don’t know if that’s true but that’s what was said. I see no reason for him to be stern with an ally (Egypt, Bahrain) and light with an enemy (Libya) so I tend to think there’s a nugget of truth to that.

  4. Also, what do you mean “From what”? Any President, every President has a schedule that only people who have done it can comprehend. He aint lazing around on the couch all day.

  5. I’m not worried, after all, Monday night is Gladys Knight night at the White House.


    People can defend this President and his pathetic lack of leadership when it comes to the economy all they want; all I know is, when even the Washington Post starts calling you out and questioning your leadership, it’s time for a certain someone to start paying attention.

    And they’re not alone in the liberal media, there’s a lot of uneasiness amongst the liberal elites. A year ago you would never, ever see any opinion column criticizing the President in the big liberal papers; rarely a week goes by where you don’t see something akin to puzzlement or “friendly advice”. And it’s only going to get worse as the President continues to show himself as aloof, unprepared, unqualified, and completely incapable of leading this nation.

  6. Dare I say it? Since the media criticizes both the left and the right, perhaps they aren’t all that liberal? Sorry, I know how awful it would be for the right to lose that boogeyman or should I say that narrative?
