Obama's "firm and nuanced hand in foreign affairs"?
Chicago AM Saturday 27 October 2012
Voice of the People, Chicago Tribune
A letter in the Voice of the People (Saturday 27 October) says because of the President's "firm and nuanced hand in foreign affairs" the writer sees "...no reason to change horses and elect someone with zero experience in such a sensitive, even crucial, policy area." Yes, even tho the President was able to firmly order the assassination of the alleged instigator of the 9/11 attacks, we still had our embassy in Egypt (a country we have been giving $3 billion a year to) threatened, and its US Flag replaced by the black flag of the Taliban, and our Ambassador to Libya sodomized, tortured and, along with four other Americans, murdered, lets vote for four more years of 'nuanced' foreign policy.
I've lived in Detroit, St Louis, Kansas City, Pittsburgh PA, Marblehead MA. Worked as tech rep in Southern CA, Bay area, NYC, I've been to Europe a dozen times (Ireland, UK, Scotland, Sweden, Finland, Belgium.
Favorite restaurants are Gene & Georgetti's in Chicago, Roma Cafe in Detroit, Frankie and Johnie's in NYC, Rigazzi's on the hill in St. Louis (Also Charlie Gitto's, was Angelo's when I went there.)
For about a year I had small offices in Clayton MO, in the Country Club Plaza in KC. I rode a ten-speed bike around Lake Michigan (The bottom half in one week in June 1978, another week for the top half in 1980, used the Badger both times.
Don't get to travel much anymore, but still try to rent a car and go around the Lake in March every year. Sure, there's still snow, and it's not warm, OTOH there are no bugs and no toursts. Greatest little tavern in the world is Sherry's Port Bar in Garden UP MI
