First let me be clear this isn’t a final assessment of America’s interdiction in Afghanistan. I will give my judgment at a later undetermined time in the future. Okay. All the people who aren’t active-duty military or Cabinet members in President Joe Biden’s Administration giving commentary about foreseeing an avoidable end to a military engagement are full of shit. Certainly Federally elected Republican politicians who are suddenly endowed with integrity should join the circus because that’s where clowns belong. Oh, and if I had to give advice to President Biden and his cabinet I would tell them to let the press have their party. I don’t care if it’s a pity party over spilled milk. I don’t care if they are trampling each other to say I told you so first. I don’t even care if they are sincere in their concern for the plight of females of all ages in Afghanistan under the Taliban. They aren’t running the show are they? Mr. President just do your job and let history write itself.
Now about Republicans trying to cast President Biden’s ability to lead or critique how he handles himself as somehow less than what they expect of a leader. Wow, that’s vexing to say it bluntly because their guy that sat in that office the last four years couldn’t contemplate on anything for an extended period to make good decisions. President Trump couldn’t spell wisdom let alone possess any and Republicans are attempting to press that line of attack as if it will help them win elections? Good luck! Which brings me to remark on President Joe Biden’s ‘aura’.
I have concluded that President Biden is a ‘FREESTYLER’. What do I mean by that? Let me break it down for you. The President’s conversational tone gives off an air of originality, honesty and openness. He doesn’t spend a lot of time thinking about topics he enjoys talking about like his family, his career, his devotion to keeping to his word. Don’t even try to compare President Biden to President Trump. President Biden may get some facts wrong in his eagerness to answer questions, but President Biden doesn’t blatantly lie like President Trump did when his lips are moving. President Biden is old enough to have developed that part of himself that tells him to trust people when you give them a job to do.
In mental health if you do it long enough and become good at it there develops in you an understanding to give people the ability to make decisions that still produce good outcomes. They don’t have to do it the way I can. I give everyone I train the ability to make good decisions because I tell them I trust them. Now if I need to offer correction I do that in private always with the goal of a full explanation of why and my unyielding support. Of course if my grasshoppers aren’t agreeable to avoiding the pitfalls present throughout mental health, then I tell them the field may not be right for them.
So, to everybody that are looking to jump on the bandwagon of turned over trash cans only to point them out as they walk by, I suggest keeping your opinions to yourself. Most people aren’t looking to clean up the mess but are certainly willing to hoot and holler about how big of a mess it is! Take a chill pill and let the professionals do their job. If you gathered from this post that I must be military you are perceptive. I am retired Army and I paid attention and learned from the best of the best as an NCO and tutored under many outstanding officers. Sit back and watch. You might learn something about performing in excellence under the worst conditions imaginable because that is part of the job description for entry into leadership in the Armed Forces of America. President Biden knows what he’s doing. Just let the man finish ending our involvement in Afghanistan and then everyone can pile on him until their hearts content. I still say good luck with that.
