Happy Anniversary

It was two years ago tomorrow that Dear Leader arrogantly (and very naively) made his very first official act in office the issuing of an executive order directing the closure of the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, "no later than 1 year from the date of this order".

Needless to say, Gitmo is still open for business.  

The lack of follow-through on his part on this issue is a fairly minor detail in the grand scheme of things, but it serves to clearly demonstrate the utter lack of preparedness for, and subsequent ineffectiveness of, President Obama in the White House.

Two of the things we've been taught in our secondary education training (which, after all, is learning how to lead and motivate a group of people, albeit on a very small scale) is to never promise what you can't deliver and to always follow through with your announced actions, otherwise you will very quickly lose the respect of your students, as well as any authority over them. 

These simple lessons would no doubt have proved quite handy in the Oval Office to date.
