Voice of the White House

Washington, D.C.:
Empires rise and empires fall. Some, like Rome, last for hundreds of years. Some, like England, last perhaps a hundred years. The American empire, rising since our Civil War, rose to become the most powerful nation, and now, as times change, the Empire does not wish to do so. Now we see Obama running after Putin crying, 'Wait for me! Wait for me!' in shrill tones. And all around him, the committees, the agencies, the power groups, all are howling advice while a captive media is pulled this way and pushed that, as conflicting orders come to them from above. And the public, the masses who vote and pay supporting taxes, no longer believe what they are or are not told, and drift with the tides, longing for a safe harbor.
