"Prayer is a private audience granted to us by God."
May I never think of prayer as something I must get to. Indeed. A private audience with God!!!
President Obama's allegiance to the liberal administrative state guaranteed that his presidency would run aground on the very shoals that Hamilton marked out. It's operations are so vast, and its reach so sprawling, that it lies beyond the control or comprehension of any one man or group of men, making rational management impossible.
It's dispersal of authority and dilution of responsibility produced the debacle in Benghazi, where no one felt responsible for the fates of American diplomats trapped in the consulate, nor would any decision, had it come, have been executed with the speed necessary to save them.Surely the "dilution of responsibility" did contribute to the horrors of that night, but one has to wonder if the president's hesitancy about what to do in Syria was not also in play during the Benghazi attack. A leader needs to lead. The most important time for that to happen is when American lives are at stake. If the media were doing its job we would know by now what exactly happened and why no rescue was attempted.
