A Lot on His Plate

When sorrows come, they come not single spies
But in battalions. ~ Hamlet, IV:5

President Obama certainly has his hands full these days. I'll bet today was one occasion that our feckless--I mean, fearless--leader would have preferred to skip having to talk. Getting busted for eavesdropping on Angela Merkel's personal cell phone, and she literally calls you on it? Whoops. Not a fun conversation.

And now there are reports that Saudi Arabia is about to give the USA the old heave-ho, diplomatically speaking. In the midst of Obamacare's mounting technological woes, the president's foreign relationships are also in shambles.

Such a pity. I guess the leveling of the oceans and the healing of the planet will have to wait.
