I was always told that one of the main differences between men and boys was their kind of toys. Apparently the current crop of legislators were raised in such a PC world they were never allowed to lose at games or learn how to strategize; no little soldiers, no cowboys and Indians (gasp). They act like this is just some type of video game we are playing with Syria and at the end of the day we just push “off” and go home to supper until next play date.
Have we gotten so naïve that we think we can play “war” with gentlemen’s rules and then ask for a do-over when we don’t like the outcome? If Truman had used current tactics, we’d all be speaking Japanese now. Where the heck does the element of surprise factor in? Everyone is so excited to see who can Tweet or give the first news interview or press conference, common sense seems to have gone out the window.
We’ll really know the world has turned upside down when Carolina starts telling Clemson what plays they plan to use and what quarter they will utilize them.
