All the President’s Men & The President


All the President’s Men & The President
By Joseph Allen

To quote one of the greatest philosophers of our generation, There are known knowns. These are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns. That is to say, there are things that we know we don’t know. But there are also unknown unknowns. There are things we don’t know we don’t know”.

What do we really know? We do know that someone told Mike Brown, Former FEMA Director, Browney, you’re doing a fine job. We do know that Kenny Boy is a fine individual.

We also know that international negative perceptions abound about US objectives and intentions worldwide. We also know that the best way to handle it, is to call an able bodied comedian. To hold sensitive Defense Department press conferences. This we do know.

Karen Hughes was recently tapped to go on a listening tour in the Middle East. Karen Hughes barely listens to our citizenry much less the Arab citizenry. Is Hughes qualified for the task? In a very sensitive part of the globe, the answer might be obvious to many. No they don’t understand.  All they tell me is about Israel, so much for the listening part of the Listening tour…


This might have started when a C student became President.  A student that partied during school, instead of after school, an apparent classic difference. Then the State of Alabama, was left in capable hands in case of a Cuban Communist attack in the 1960’s. This while W served in the Alabama National Guard. The military intellect and genius, that he brought that great state, is still legendary and unmatched to this day.

Having been a Congressman’s son, and a baseball owner, that was apparently enough qualifications for Texans to elect him Governor. The chief executive of one of the largest states in the union, and they loved him. The very same state that has more boots per capita, and no those boots are not just made for walking.

His verbal skills are now legendary. Webster’s Dictionary, is sure to be contemplating many changes. The C’ student did get a A in something however. The Washington Outsider turns out worse than the insiders. The deficit is at appalling numbers. The biggest mistake in the history of international politics is a devastating economic disaster in the wings. And a human tragedy, all based on a mistake.

The people of Louisiana are the newest victims of this agonizing tale. Long after this C student is gone, there will be another letter left for the American public. This letter will not be W it will the letter L for the Loser. This for economic calamity about to befall us, brought to us courtsey of this genius.
