Michael: My father is no different than any powerful man, any man with power, like a president or senator.
Kay Adams: Do you know how naive you sound, Michael? Presidents and senators don’t have men killed.
Michael: Oh. Who’s being naive, Kay?

Yesterday at the end of his show Jake Tapper put out a tweet under his show’s account that depressed me a tad.

Now the reason for this depression has nothing to do with Mr. Trump’s words or implications concerning President Obama motives per se.
No the reason is that seven years ago when I started this blog in 2008 that tweet is something I might have sent if a person made such an implication concerning an American President.
But after seven years of watching Barack Obama in action the implication or even suggestion that President Barack Obama, the man whose political career began in the home of a Terrorist, might have a soft spot for radical Islam is so unremarkable that Mr Tapper’s tweet seems almost quaint.
I miss both my previous days of innocence and having a president who is unquestionably on the side of America.
