True enough, but that makes it really difficult for the rest of the world to know how to interact with us since we're prone to these wild, schizophrenic mood swings every four to eight years.

This time's worse than usual. The Trump Administration has pretty much removed all the senior staff at the State Department. Current foreign policy is "Uh...probably not what Trump tweeted at 3 am but we'll get back to you."

That's a quite interesting post. It broadly reflects my feelings about Obama: I was generally satisfied with his domestic policies, but very disappointed with his foreign/military actions. The latter is somewhat tempered by my belief that none of Obama's political rivals would have been any more to my liking on that front.

I find that to be quite an encouraging notion.

Agreed. With all of this.

As do I.
