“What do you think of the prez doing all those fund raisers?” he asked.
“I’ve been wondering about that,” I replied. “He doesn’t seem to spend any time doing any thinking or reading – he’s always running around doing foolish interviews.”
“That’s what I’m wondering about too. Like, he’s off on Martha’s Vineyard and all day he golfs and parties at night. How’s he get anything clear in his mind?”
“I sometime wonder,” I replied. “Look at the mess he’s fallen into in Iraq.”
“What do you mean with Maliki and what’s his name claiming to be prime minister.”
“No, with the Islamic State. ISIS. He’s really a day late and a dollar short on that one. Do your remember back in January when he was asked about them. He said: “If a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms, that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant.” In January they’re a bunch of junior leaguers, in June they capture Mosul, and in August we’re back in a war with them.”
Spike shook his head: “That’s sort of scary he’s so out of touch.”
