And we seem to have political problems.

So what do you see as a solution? I value your opinion.

There are all kinds of reasons why a head of state (a normal one) might seek to take a path between sucking up and bared teeth aggression.
The face value of these comments is meaningless.
It sounds like he is trying to lower the temperature to return to the pre-psycho government of the past four years.


All the same, my confidence levels for better government throughout the world is not at an all-time high.

In the 1960's Tom Lehrer had a song with the following suggestion:

Step up and shake the hand
Of someone you can't stand
You can tolerate him
If you try

A nice combination of idealism, realism and humor.

Which, of course, is just my way of saying I don't see a way out of this mess.

I might come back to this later.
