"What do you think of this," asked my wife while showing me an email that points out that Mr. Obama does not use American flags nor the traditional red, white, and blue that past American Presidents have staged with at press conferences.

The email in facts contends that the current resident of the White House uses tradition Muslim colors in stead, and quite on purpose.

In my now typical indifference I answered that's his prerogative.

Its really not indifference, its cynicism.

I don't like it at all. Just like I don't like much of what he is doing, or not doing for that matter.

Especially the bowing to foreign leaders.

But in order to live in sane complacency, I've been viewing my government as the biggest horror/tragedy story of all time on the big screen.

Its a real frightening tale of corruption and ineptitude abetted by a grand facade of security and faux vision.

When your expectations are low, as the quality of our leaders mandate, it shouldn't be an enraging moment when the star of the show can't deliver the imagery and on-screen strength of a mighty empire.

I've heard politics are for bad and ugly actors.

Evidently so.
