If I were as greedy, evangelical and evil the president appears to be, I would wait until I was assured of a second term in office before I started wars that enriched my friends and family at the expense of poor people duped by the idea of "patriotism."

But I'm not president, and my dad was never president, so who am I to say. (This president's dad didn't win his second term either.)
