In the constant power struggles between governments and between politicians there occasionally surfaces a point in which it is clear that one party to the struggle has gained control and has the other party “by the balls”. With due respect to those who may think that the phrase is inappropriate, I can only say I find it quite descriptive of those moments and suggest we post here when we recognize such. My contributions for the day are:
1. Putin v. Obama …..and Putin is squeezing hard because he has the power on the Syria issue. Obamas small arms arming is really, really stupid and Putin is calling him on it. The only way Obama can regain the power is to ratchet up our involvement by establishing a no-fly zone or some other big time move. The public won’t support it and Putin knows it. Obama must really be hurting right now.
2. Rand Paul v. Marco Rubio….Paul has Rubio by the balls in the struggle for 2016. Rubio has screwed up big time in the immigration issue and his efforts to negotiate thru the mess has become laughable.
