President Milquetoast

As the hours in the ‘Stan wind down, Twitter is alight with Talk Like a Pirate Day and the Rose Garden gumflap. I’m at the Green Bean by the main PX in Bagram, and they’re jack hammering to remodel the corner. You need something loud to block that, so I reach for Helmet. Then I’m thinking: what Helmet cut would afford the reader a short summary of BHO? Emphasis mine:


Tell me if you think it’s all right
I’ll give in to what you know
I don’t see the habits that
Become me
I’ve saved up my useless thoughts

Well means, it works I’m on your side
I said that? Well so, I lied

Remember I tried not to be wary
This failed me once too much

Well preserved
Don’t forget what you heard

Feel the drums:

Bonus: maybe BHO gave us just exactly what we wanted.

    But he has not been milqutetoast.  That term implies a timid and unassertive person.  Barack Obama managed to get Obamacare passed.  A disaster to be sure, but in the words of Plugs Biden, a big f’n deal.  Obama managed to cause a lot of harm.  If only he really was just milquetoast.
