Looking For A Clue.....

Nuking Politics
It was said that in about 400 BC Diogenes walked around the marketplace in Athens carrying a lamp, looking for an honest man. It was a complete waste of time, and I suppose he intended it as political commentary, but at least he didn't bother trying it in DC…. 
Obama has a very busy schedule. When he isn't golfing, vacationing, or attending A-list fundraisers, he's hard at work on foreign policy, the economy, or social inequality. At least that's what Jay Carney says. And somehow in the midst of it all, he finds time for late night comedy spots like the appalling example here.
Considering that his efforts in those areas are all colossal failures, what he needs to do is find some time to search, not for an honest man, but for a clue. Any clue. About anything.
The problem with that is this: Before someone sees the need to look for a clue, they must first acknowledge that they in fact need one. That would suggest that they already have one, because they're aware that something they're doing needs improvement. That kind of humility isn't something Mr Obama appears to be capable of.
Maybe if he ever finds one, he'll share it with his pals in DC, and with the people in the country who still support him.
