Barack Obama's Diary: Decisions, decisions

by The Laughing Conservative

Dear Diary: I am running like a Pamplona bullrunner, dodging the horns of the Syrian dilemma. I have been in constant contact with David Cameron in London who says we can't stand aside while Assad unleashes a holocaust against his own people. "Why?" I asked, "why should we get involved?"

"It's a matter of honor", The Brit declared. " As powerful nations we must enforce a ban on nerve gas."


I replied: " Dude, did you seriously just say that? What's in it for us?"


"The satisfaction of doing the right thing."


But what if Val Jarrett disapproves? I think I will have to leave the decision to John Kerry so he takes the heat if there's screw-up. These are the dilemmas of a decisive, cutting-edge modern leader. But enough about me.
