Surely the decision to print the Jason Stanford column “President Obama’s diplomatic victories are the best you’ve never heard” (Aug. 10) was a mistake, or merely a ploy to bring levity to what should be a serious situation. I certainly laughed out loud when I read it.
Obama’s so-called diplomacy is to not be interested in what is true, but in what is convenient. He wants as few people as possible to know as little as possible about everything. The biggest way to achieve that is to smile obsequiously and shy away from meeting with the press. He adds a whole new meaning to the term “empty suit.”
The exception to that is when he appears at a fund-raiser, or interrupts a rigorous game of golf to aim a few choice zingers at people who are keeping him from doing his job. Now those are the things I wish I would never hear!
