The Grand Tour Ends With Obamally Emulating Ronald Reagan

In his quest to be all things to all people, Barry Lyndon Obamally, entertained the press in London with another day of political frivolity and ends up stumbling upon a political truth. You can't be all things, all the time, on all subjects to all the people.

He needs thinking time
"We call it the dentist's waiting room," Cameron said. "You have to scrap that because you've got to have time."

"And, well, and you start making mistakes," Obama said, "or you lose the big picture. Or you lose a sense of, I think you lose a feel-- ""Your feeling," interrupted Cameron. "And that is exactly what politics is all about. The judgment you bring to make decisions."

"That's exactly right," Obama said. "And the truth is that we've got a bunch of smart people, I think, who know ten times more than we do about the specifics of the topics. And so if what you're trying to do is micromanage and solve everything then you end up being a dilettante but you have to have enough knowledge to make good judgments about the choices that are presented to you."

Imagine how thrilled Obamally's base will be when they find out that he thinks like the only president they hate more than George W. Bush, Ronald Reagan. Maybe Obamally will twist yet one more time and announce "Star Wars" is the future defense of America.
