    Many years ago, as a caseworker, I had some of the (superficial) training they do for mental health hospital staff, the psyche techs ... the trainings used many martial arts concepts and techniques, but they MUST (in theory) diffuse and disarm an aggressive or combative Patient without anyone getting hurt. Ive been trying to figure out how those concepts apply to what Ive seen with Obama's whole approach... you pretty much nailed it in this diary! Very interesting.  thanks.
