The President is NOT playing chess or checkers.. he is fly fishing
I know I have heard many people refer to President Obamas policies as Chess...but I think it is a lot more like fly fishing.
If you have never done fly fishing (without some guide holding your hand).. the first thing you do is scout the river.. see what the fish are eating. You just don't throw something in willy nilly.
When you see what is hatching, what the trout are feeding on, you either use a fly you have already tied, or go back to camp and tie one that matches whatever is there.. and toss it out..
You catch the fish with their own bait..
and the you release the small ones to grow.. catch and release..you don't eat the future.
It takes skill and patience. Kudos to a skilled man.
