As JFK said of the "Bay of Pigs" disaster. "Success has many fathers, but failure is an orphan". However JFK took the hit for that massive failure. As any American president would do,...till now.
I'm actually amazed even 'stunned' by our current president. With the failure of his administration's first major legislation he refuses responsibility.

He even went so far as to tell his voters to watch a Fox News hatchet job on House Speaker Paul Ryan in a massive shifting of blame. That program telling Ryan to step down. Mr. Trump with so many condemnations already heaped upon him from rational people marks a new low.

Truly I am amazed,...yes stunned that even 'he' would as a matter of course sink so low in cowardice, and immaturity. How we will fare the next three years, and ten months I do not know.

"Trump directed people through a tweet to watch Pirro, on Fox, a former county court judge and district attorney. Her “opening statement” was, “Paul Ryan needs to step down as speaker of the house. The reason? He failed to deliver the votes on his healthcare bill.”
She said that “Americans elected the one man they believed could do it,” and that Speaker Ryan came in with his “swagger and experience” and sold Trump a “bill of goods which ends up a complete and total failure.”
“I want to be clear this is not on President Trump,” Pirro added. (MSN)

( I'm afraid I must post given the absence of civics, and history in this era's schools. The above painting is a detail of the official portrait of President John F. Kennedy.) youngsters might want to google him. We once had brave wise dignified occupants of the White House.

Stay Tuned as long as you can.


  1. That's a damn good painting: great brushwork, nice copper-bronze palette. I like it. Trump's official portrait will look more like the background figures from Goya's "The Sleep of Reason Produces Monsters," or the same artist's picture of "Saturn Devouring His Children."


  2. My money's on that Saturn buffet.
