If wishes were horses our cart would have a driver.

At the #BeigePressConference, it became eminently clear that “the strategy thing” is above Big Guy’s pay grade:

“I don't want to put the cart before the horse. We don't have a strategy yet,” before elaborating, “I think what I’ve seen in some of the news reports suggest that folks
are getting a little further ahead of what we’re at than what we
currently are.”

Imagine if Donald Rumsfeld had uttered that line! Or better yet, George W. Bush! Butt I digress; since we prefer to be led from behind,

and since Val is still on vacation, and since we were speaking of horses, BO handed the ISIS strategery-thing off to his Secretary of State for handling. John “F” Kerry is reporting for duty:

I really don’t think this is going to turn out well; butt I guess we can’t change horses in mid-stream can we? Nay, I didn’t think so.

So we’re more or less stuck for now: a President who has no clue and no strategy and his Secretary of State who has no clue and the wrong strategy. We’re left holding the bag, wishin’ and HOPEin’ for the best; of course if wishes were horses, beggars would ride, wouldn’t they?
