Wednesday morning round-up (and Open Thread)

Victorian posy of pansiesTo President Obama, the American military isn’t about defending America against her enemies. After all, why would he want to do that? Our chickens are coming home to roost and we deserve what’s coming to us. Instead, per Obama, our American military is all about addressing victim identity within America’s own borders. Obama’s been carrying out that project very successfully, too.  The result of his efforts is that old-fashioned troops who actually think the military’s job is protecting our country — and who dislike the Left’s frantic attempts to fix something that, insofar as its primary purpose is concerned, wasn’t broken — are bowing out, with the Navy leading the way.

Al Gore loved his "frog in boiling water" analogy.  It's certainly correct when it comes to Americans and the rising fuel prices the MSM ignores.

But let's remember that, in America, there are still good people and for that we should be grateful.
