Does Obama Practice Muhammad’s Teachings?
Last night I had to sit through an hour long rant from a close (by marriage) relative about how poorly Obama had done in that first debate, all the while thinking about how the debate was far more than what it seemed to be on the surface. I suffered in silence, and the reason that I chose to be silent is because from past experience I’m well aware of the problems that arise from arguing with a family member, these invariably will be arguments that seldom turn out well in the long run. I can only offer as further explanation that this is my variant of the old “Don’t poop where you sleep” dictum, i.e., do your dirty work as far from your home as you can so you can walk away from it when you want (or need) to.
I believe that what Obama has actually done was an update of what was called Rope-A-Dope, as used by Muhammad Ali and revealed to the world in his 1974 Rumble in the Jungle match against George Foreman. I’ve heard of a similar method expressed by a friend that’s a very advanced level practitioner of Tae Kwon-do, and the way he puts it is that you should “Invite the attack you’re best able to defend against”.
So what’s it all about, Mittsie? I think you should be grateful that you were not required to submit a blood sample to see if you had amped yourself and your “Voodoo Economics” up with something, but in the end you’re going to find that you’ve been set up for the next round, and there’s never been one who is more perfect to receive a “Sucker Punch” than you. And my friend, next to you releasing your tax records for the past decade or so, that’s the big event that I’m really looking forward to.
