Al-Qaida is on the run, don't you know? And tomorrow, I may run a marathon in two hours. Both statements are ridiculous. The former was made by President Barack Obama. The latter is by no less a personage than me.

Obama has become an enigma. He is like a crossword puzzle. I try to figure out where his words belong … sideways, upside-down or backward. They are seldom straight-forward or at all credible.

Sadly he has become a dismal failure. Our enemies — and they are many — do not respect or fear him.

Vladimir Putin merely dismisses him as nonessential.

The world is in crisis mode. Our president will probably go on another vacation. So much for hope and change. He does not have a clue.
