brian cork is asking President Obama to be a LEADER


Donald Trump is getting a lot or press and other attention of late not only because he has threatened us all, collectively, to run for president, but also because he is very good at saying things that are irreverent.

this has made him somewhat popular with weaker Democrats and Republicans alike.

but, Trumps’ influence is disruptive and will draw attention away from vital flaws found in the make-up of key party leaders pushing and shoving for a “poll-position”.

…I’ll not apologize for that pun.

one of the candidates adding fist shaking to the mob is Barack Obama. Trump has him squarely in his sites and is relentless in his hearty and ferocious efforts drawing unflattering attention to the incumbent. in fact, I’ll not be surprised if Trump throws his hat into the melee for a limited agenda that includes only foiling Obama’s desire for global demonization reelection. NOTE: he’ll use his own money to do it. and, this might end up making him a national hero that eclipses his ridiculous Apprentice. by the way, given Obama’s keen desire to be on late-night television (Leno), he may well be the first-ever president to appear on the Apprentice (a smackdown reunion, if you will).

Trump is not actually a threat to either party. in truth, the president’s aides probably hope to goad Trump into running, to the detriment of the Republican party. Trump’s antics cut off the air supply of GOP candidates who could be credible challengers. they make Obama look mature and reasonable.

…no, seriously. Obama could qualify as a pundit. look how passionate and firm in his convictions were over college hoops sweet sixteen.

but, Trump being involved in the elections can be useful. for example, we apparently now know (thanks to CNN?) that Barack Obama is a true citizen of the United States with a birth certificate found in the state of Hawaii ratifying the fact. personally, I’m delighted that he is a citizen (even though he did not actually live here until he arrived at for college). otherwise, someone might be embarrassed. and, Arnold Schwarzeneggar would be rightfully indignant. but, the fact that Obama has spent millions of tax payer dollars just to avoid holding it up to the press has Trump (and, well most of us) thumping our chests in outrage.

come on… Arnold would staple the document to his forehead on Saturday Night Live, and keep a straight face, I’ll wager.

I appreciate Obama making a stand on energy. that’s his thing, now, you know. but, that’s an easy one, mostly because no one expects him, or anyone to make a real difference, anyway. and healthcare is hard (Michelle is great on Disney Channel commercials. but Hilary Clinton had to travel). but, it makes for gallant sound bites. and Obama is very good at talking – except when it comes to making simple statements. mind you, it’s probably to Obama’s benefit to run against a grouchy, strangely coiffed tycoon with a taste for crackpot theories. if you were the president, would you rather spend the next eighteen months discussing your accountability around the dire facts about the budget and the economy – or, whether you were actually born in Kenya?

meanwhile, Trump is saying he refuses to reveal his tax returns, despite a mandate for all public office candidates, until Obama reveals his birth certificate.

that seems fair, to me.

and, all Obama has to do is shrug, set the drama aside, hop off of his high-horse and share a xerox copy of the certificate. end of story. pin in Trumps balloon. future president of the United Nations.

that would, in an odd way, demonstrate some otherwise lacking leadership.

look… to compete in an age group extreme race I still have to present a birth certificate. so, why would Barack Obama flinch in presenting his? we know he is a citizen, now (what we want is another matter). being stubborn (or, obstinate works) is not necessarily a trait you want to find in the leader of the free world. if this was a missile crisis, it would be one thing. but, smoking one hundred bills (tax dollrs) to create a smoke screen of self-indulgence is another. but, a clerical issue? come on Mr. President. we are laying-off school teachers while you are spending millions of dollars for your personal pride.

peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
