This Seems To Be A…

Jens StoltenbergI’m a fan of the president’s. I don’t agree with everything he’s done. We mostly see eye-to-eye.

This evening a friend told me the president had snubbed Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, head of NATO. That’s him on the left. My friend attached a Bloomberg News article.

“This seems to be a f*** up,” I replied, sans asterisks. A few minutes later I added, “It’s wrong. No one is f*** up proof. Not me. Not you.”

This is a simple truth. We all f*** up!

Unfortunately, in today’s supercharged atmosphere, too many people think every f*** up is actually a purposefully evil deed. We are suspicious. We are paranoid. That’s not healthy.

We all f*** up.

  1. Geoff,

    I see your dancing around the issue in your post. If you read the Bloomberg article, and read between the lines, the only plausible conclusion is that this was an intentional snub.

    The story has a date line of Mar 24, 2015 7:20 PM EDT. With the stated Presidential schedule, 5 minutes (heck 5 hours) could surely have been found. My question for you Geoff, why don’t you just call the President out on this? You can be a supporter and still be honest to the truth of the event.

    1. Nice to know you know the presidents schedule so well you can allocate time for him to do things better than his own people or himself.
      Some things are just as they appear to be. Even reading between the lines you can come to any number of conclusions.

      1. tango, Did you read that article? It states Obama had nothing scheduled, not even a golf game.

        Add to this what Obama did to Benjamin Netanyahu (not just snubbing him during his visit, but actively joining his opponents campaign and not calling BN after his win), and yes indeed, you have something extraordinary.

        1. My point is this NATO decision was probably made at a level too low. I suspect the president didn’t know.

          As for Netanyahu, it was he who stuck his finger in the president’s eye by coming when it was obvious the White House didn’t want him coming. We are aligned with Israel, not Bibi. It’s tough to see how his actions advance world peace.

  2. There’s plenty of hate to sprinkle around today and it’s all about failures of whomever the hater hates. Ironically, there are the republican haters and democratic haters and haters rejoicing in whatever they want to hate. The four letter word hate has infiltrated American way of living that the filtration system IS broke for good. Living with hate IS now the norm like it or not.

  3. Geoff, I got as far as you stating that you are a fan of the president. I have a question, and I am not trying to start an argument or have a disagreement, but I really feel he is anti-Semitic. As a Jew, this concerns me quite a bit. Do you believe that the president is not an anti Semite ?

  4. Hi Geoff, Excuse me for being off topic. I’m confused as to why for the past 2 days when trying to view the KMIR News at 5, your time here in CT it’s 8, I’m viewing the previous days replay of the 11 pm news. I enjoy listening to your weather report, even though the ocean is on the wrong side and the temps are way to high. Have the air times been changed? For me the 5 o’clock Pacfic Time broadcast is all I’m able to watch.

    Miss you in CT,

  5. For some reason amongst a certain set of people EVERYTHING is a conspiracy of some kind. Some government official blinks funny and all of a sudden it’s a ‘secret code’ to ‘enemies of the State’.
