#1 He could turn out to be a moderate or a mixed bag. He's putting out conflicting signals. Some moves are quite curious, like the Emanuel Pick, many more surprises to come no doubt.

#2 Emmanuel was picked because he's a consummate political infighter. The Chief of Staff runs the administration, handles the President, etc. The 'Israel' bullet on his c.v. doesn't mean much in this case; the Chief of Staff has very little input into foreign policy.

More telling is the supposed 'non-staffer' who's been talking to Hamas all these months and is now the more-or-less official link to them, Syria and Egypt.

#3 The best we can hope from a Zero administration is catastrophic incompetence. This is close to my expectation, but......

His buddy Chavez has just threatened to put tanks in the streets if his person loses an election. That's Zero's model of governing, 2010?

You don't want to know my worst case.....

#4 My wife works with a PHD Chemist from Caracas, Venezuela.
He tells me that it used to be just as civil and structured as the US, before that pig Chavez got elected. If you want to brush up on your Spanish curse words, mention Chavez around him. You'll hear swears you've never heard before. Something about his mother and a baseball bat, I don't know.

#5 Obama is worse than anyone can imagine. It takes an Indonesian or someone who grew up there to be able to read him. He is very angry, and has evil plans. His "blank slate" stuff (a kind of exterior "cultural politeness") is something he borrowed from Indonesia and then twisted to serve him here. He's not the creature he has created.
