Trump’s 886th Day In Office
Gatling Guns? We Don’t Need No Stinking Gatling Guns!
Hurley the Historian says on this date in 1876 Lieutenant Colonel George Armstrong Custer had a lapse in judgment when he underestimated the number of Indians on the JV Team at the Battle of the Little Big Horn, and also forgot to bring his three Gatling guns because they might slow down his cavalry, not unlike the lapse in judgment Obama exhibited when people told him he was making a big mistake pulling all our troops out of Iraq before the mission had been successfully completed.
Maybe that’s why our Quote for Today Committee Chose Custer’s “There are not enough Indians in the world to defeat the Seventh Cavalry.”
Not only that, here’s our Joke of the Day: Q: What’s the difference between Custer and Obama? A: That’s what we say— what’s the difference!
Thom Hartmann says Obama is a modern day version of Custer, because Like Custer, Obama is prideful, self-promoting, lacking empathy, and convinced of the correctness of his actions while engaging in the systematic dispossession and destruction of the 99%’s natural resources, rights, as well as way of life all for the benefit of a few moneyed interests.
He is at his best in this endeavor when he blames the Republicans or otherwise chooses when to employ inaction, all the while bending the laws and the Constitution to suit his further imperialism and accumulation of wealth. Obama is truly Bill Clinton’s protégé.
Obama was leading the country into the same kind of mess Custer led his men into. He wanted Congress and the American people to walk shoulder to shoulder with him into that mess.
“No thank you, Mr. President,” we said on Election Day in 2016. “We don’t take orders from you. We’re not in the military. Neither is my Congressman, nor is my family. Your entire tenure as president has been one Battle of the Big Horn. You have dragged the country into a box canyon and Greece is just around the corner. And, you are no leader. You are a speaker and a campaigner, not a leader. You are the worst president in this nation’s history. If you can’t get Congress and the public to follow you, you can’t conscript us into the military. Mr. Obama, you definitely need to find a different line of work.”
