Tragedy Abroad

       Another tragic day as we awake to the attacks in Brussels where dozens are dead.  European cities are changing and have become a Mecca for radicalized elements. Lately the rush of people is from Syria.
        This shifts the focus of the Presidential race back to foreign affairs. Events favor Donald Trump who just bolstered his foreign policy chops with his AIPAC speech and announcement of a list of policy advisors. Of course, Secretary Clinton can claim experience in the field as well.
        There's nothing like the feeling of loneliness you get as a lame duck. You walk through the rooms where you used to get attention and it's like you are not there.
        That's how it seems with President Obama's trip to Cuba.  I think it's important and interesting and I found President Castro's remarks a fascinating rebuff to US hubris. I also think opening the door is important, as I am not one of those bitter Miami , third generation Battista exiles longing for the good old days.
        The Cuba trip is overshadowed by the campaign and other events and the anchors standing in Havana this morning trying to talk about Brussels was a case in point.
        Mr. Obama is yesterday's news, but I hope he enjoys his final months.

They let terrorists into their country on purpose and then terrorism happens. Tragic...I guess.

Who the hell cares? I hope the towel heads continue to have their fun. Baseball and football is not in session and it gives people something to watch. The only candidate that thinks about importing tens of thousands of bomb builders is ridiculed as a racist, phobe and all that. While the pants suited vagina can't wait to bring them in to gain their votes. And local golf heroes say it's "un-American" not to bring these murdering fools over to our country. We will get what we deserve. Media says bring them on. So I guess we have to do it or we are haters. Let's have some fun.

Pretty good of you and Bammy to overlook little things like Castro and his thugs kidnapping,torturing,imprisoning and murdering citizens that disagreed with him.No problem,just let Bam go on with the photo ops and making kissy face with these people.

11:27, if you weren't so pathetic you would be funny. Who woulda thunk it? Why it's George Bush's fault. You are so embarrassed by the deep thinkers who want to import this trash to the US, you came up with this. Very, very cool.

2:57, not much of a rebuttal. It's people like you who want this crap imported. Don't call me a dumbass. That might be you, per se, as it were.

ABC News is reporting mass celebrations of people waving flags of Muslim counties in Belgium. They haven't called the people muslims. Kind of reminicent of the 9/11 celebrations that the MSM now says never happened.

Remember when the golf pros went nuts over GW when he didn't run out of that classroom? Now we have the Liar in Chief dancing with a ho in Argentina. Whatdaya say, as it were, pukes?

12:14 They are always silent, what does anyone expect from a feckless, leaderless head of a national party or being a member of such.

And we have the Misses doing her own side freakshow right along Hubby lamenting she still feels degraded and dirty when she recalls growing up men would whistle at her walking down the streets. Imagination on steroids by both of them of their importance in the world.
