To my Conservative Friends:
Only kidding!!! Even though I gave all of you some great advice yesterday on how to hibernate and avoid the spectacle of the One’s Crowning yesterday, I had to be an observer for the loyal opposition and take notes on the scene…
And what a scene it was man… From the estimated 2 million people who went to watch in DC to the cutaways the networks displayed of the thousands in Times Square, San Fran-Freak Show and the rest of the country…
Everyone was texting and calling me all day and night asking me my thoughts on the event, so what better place to share them than here….
So here are a few of my thoughts on the day:
I could not help but notice that the networks could not help themselves by seeking out every black person in the country. I mean, I know it is a very proud day for them to have one of their own sworn in to be the President of the greatest country ever created, but I found it to be a little demeaning to the African-American community like that was the only thing that mattered to them.
I am sure African Americans were proud when Kennedy was elected and a small percentage where even proud when Ronald Reagan and George Bush got elected… After all, no President in history has had more African-Americans in his cabinet that W… But again, the man gets no respect or appreciation...
And the networks went out of their way to show them crying, nodding and some had arms outstretched, eyes closed as if they were praying. Hey People, he is the President, not the second coming!!!! He does not walk on Water!!!!
Did you happen to see Hanoi Jane Fonda almost weeping? Yeah, now she’s proud of her country!! Can’t bash the troops now Janie????
As far as Obama’s speech, I found it strikingly non-inspiring. There was no memorable moment or line. Just his normal “Yes we can” stuff from the campaign can… I found myself very bored during it. I only noted 4 memorable themes during the speech:
1. The most comical part of the day was the absolute shredding Barry made of the oath… For those of you who missed it, Barry forgot his lines and needed Chief Justice Roberts walk him through the oath like me helping my 7-year old read a book!!!!
2. In his speech, he was very antagonistic towards President Bush, saying we have to put aside our petty political differences now… Are you kidding me, the libs have stood for nothing else the past 8 years other than petty political differences!!! Now that you’re in charge, we should all sing Kumbaya and hold hands???? We’ll see Barry Hussein…..
3. His tough talk on terrorism rang so hollow to me as he said that the terrorists better watch out if they are going to mess with us!!!! Oooooohhhh, I bet they are really, really a-scared now…. Especially when he leaves the inauguration to go meet with the new Surrender Monkey, terrorist coddling head of the CIA, Leon, the “Nose” Panetta to eliminate surveillance on the bad guys before he issues an Executive order to shut down GITMO…. Real tough Barr….. Here is my 1st of many tips to our new Prez – Barry – Terrorist hate you as much as they hate President Bush…. Once you understand that, the safer we all will be…
4. And the look on President Bush’s face said it all… You could almost here him saying – Fine – you bunch in ingrates, keep bashing the guy who did nothing but keep you safe for 7 years… I’m outta here!!!!
So in summary, I was not impressed. And from the look at the financial world, neither was Wall Street as the Dow took a 332 point dump right after the Chosen-One butchered his oath….
Oh what a looooong winter this is turning out to be….
Just my thoughts…
