The Audacity of Reticence

You don't gamble with the nation's prestige. The President of the United States is the embodiment of the State, the United States of American, abroad. Barack Obama gambled with the image of this country, and lost:
FoxNews - "Chicago was knocked out in the first round — in one of the most shocking defeats ever handed down by the International Olympic Committee. Even Tokyo, which had trailed throughout the race, did better — eliminated after Chicago in the second round."
You have to have the courage not to put your, and consequently the nation's reputation on the line. The "Audacity," if you will, to be reticent, to shut up, to not be innovative, to not be "cutting edge."

Get that chin down you arrogant incompetent. Get your guard up and defend the country. Know your limitations. Look us in the eye. You're just a man, and you're one of us, not a trans-formative figure. Know that, and do NOT take the country, which is larger than you, down, with your ambition.
