The news this morning isn't surprising. It was inevitable based on a foreign policy of indecisiveness and without awareness of our actual power. They kill our ambassador and burn our facilities and we simply nod wisely and say we understand their rage.
Meanwhile Iran continues apace and when our strongest, longest, most capable ally in the region comes to call, the President "won't be in town at the same time"...but he can fit Letterman into his schedule.
If you wondered about an October Surprise, you can begin to focus on what is coming.
"Ya know, this Presidenting stuff is harder than I thought it would be! Michelle, where do you want to eat while we're in Vegas?"
