The Honeymoon Is Over Mr. President, Is It Time to Talk Divorce?
A quick four years have now gone by the wayside. I recall telling my more liberal friends get ready for Carter II. As they where awash in "hope" the blinders were on but the thinking caps evidently were not. I asked what specific policy this candidate advocated? All I heard is "hope and change". As I suggested again that this is not a policy I was told he would unite the U.S and the world. Really?
Fast forward four years and even his most vocal sycophants in the worldwide media are turning on the poor chap. I mean for a Democrat to draw the ire of a Maureen Dowd let alone Dana Milbank from the Washington Post well then you know there is trouble in paradise. They are clearly dissatisfied with Mr. President. And who can blame them. He pays back his friends and parties with Hollywood celebs while Rome burns. I personally felt he was not ready for prime time and he has convinced me.
So how does the rest of the world view our leader. Recall his speech in Germany to hundreds of thousands of cheering fans. I heard it but took nothing away from it. Yet they cheered incessantly. Doubtless they did not understand what he was saying. So how do they feel today? Lets check in with Der Spiegel and their recent poll. They are none to pleased and how to blame them. The vacuous promises where not kept.
And of course the coup de grace, President Clinton is working over Obama pretty hard. No doubt this stems from jealousy at not having another four years on Air Force One or a sense of his betterness as opposed to the rookie. Who knows and who cares?
I care about the poor people who think with the heart as opposed to the head. They must listen carefully to these speeches. I have preached this endlessly and although my target today is a Democrat believe me I hold Republican leaders in equal contempt. In fact anyone who will not level with us after all the authority we give them is not worth the ink on this paper in my opinion.Continued on the next page
