Grip & Grins...

Most of us who have retired from our full time careers, put on our lounge pants and tee shirts -- and have our little 'man-caves' from which to communicate with the world -- have one wall in the home office for our 'Grip & Grin' pictures. 

A mosaic of all of the intere
sting folks we met in our working years, and had the pleasure of meeting for a Grip & Grin photo opportunity....  How sad that on Obamanation's wall in his retiree man-cave..... he will have these photos to display.

"If there was a theme to 2014, it was Obama’s persistence in bailing out dictators and theocrats from political scrapes and economic hardships, his tenacity in pursuit of engagement with America’s adversaries no matter the cost to our strength, principles, credibility, or alliances.
In this president the thugs in Havana and Caracas, Damascus and Tehran, Moscow and Naypyidaw and Beijing have no better friend. For these bullies, these evildoers, these millenarians and sectarians, Barack Obama is more than a dupe. He is an insurance policy.
Cuba is but the latest example of this president’s failing to exercise leverage in the pursuit of American strength and security and prestige. Here are the Castro brothers, decrepit and spent, their revolution a joke, their economy in peril thanks to the collapse in oil prices brought on by a strong dollar and increased U.S. supply.   [...........]
“Think where man’s glory most begins and ends,” wrote Yeats, “And say my glory was I had such friends.” Dictators don’t have many friends. But they have Barack Obama."
{Matthew Continetti (Dec 19th)}
The man is obviously lashing about looking for a legacy but should remember those oxymoronic words: "Be careful what you wish for, for it may come true."
