From a man who could have served his nation in his youth my enlisting in the war in Vietnam, yet chose instead to serve in the National Guard (a sure way of avoiding war duty at the time) comes this gem:

I must say, I’m a little envious… If I were slightly younger and not employed here, I think it would be a fantastic experience to be on the front lines of helping this young democracy succeed. It must be exciting for you … in some ways romantic, in some ways, you know, confronting danger. You’re really making history, and thanks…

This is the kind of doe eyed, fantastical, uber patriotic pablum that wing nuts eat up like starved dogs. But here in the land of truth, it comes off like it is: a joke with no punchline. And, let there be no doubt that in his little pea of a brain, the president of the most powerful nation on Earth believes what he has said is the G-d honest truth. He would grab a gun and fight for freedom, if her were younger, and didn’t have a job, you know, that was really important. He would fight. Honest. Really. He would. Cause, it’s so romantic, fighting war, with Dutch and Billy and all the others. Fight! Fight! Fight!
