Obama Better Organizine the White House Better Than He Did the Inauguration

"Optimistic chants of "change" and "O-bam-A" morphed into angered shouts of "Let us in!" outside the security gates to the inauguration. These folks had tickets, and they wanted in." Yet many didn't get in too see the event because of bad organization. "There was a "chaos of people, no line and no bullhorns with directions," said Haverkate. We were so disappointed that we missed the historical moment we'd be waiting for for months," he said. Another person who came all the way from California had this to say, "The entire experience was extremely disappointing, and I am utterly disgusted and appalled at the organization and preparation of this event," Well at least you didn't come from Michigan in your Wheelchair. After a bus ride from Detroit to D.C. Denise Robinson was twenty feet from the gate when it closed. Mayor John Bull from Coxsackie, New York who was also denied entry said this, "It's heartbreaking to think how far she came and how hard is was for her and her husband to fight through the crowds and push her wheelchair just to be shunned in the end."

First of all I feel bad for all those people who had tickets that were unable to get in to the inauguration. I know when I buy a ticket for an event I expect to be able to attend the event. However apparently that isn't the case if it's an event Obama is a part of. Obama if this is a preview of how you plan to run the country I'd say it's going to be a long four years.

Fidel is alive and has a "very good Perception"of Obama.

The title alone should scare the crap out of every American. When bad people be it Fidel, Hamas, Ahmadinejad, have positive things to say about you I don't consider that to be a good thing. If it was one bad person I'd say not to worry about it but it seems like every bad person has something nice to say about "The One."

In a meeting with Argentina President Fernandez Castro. Castro called Obama, "a man who seems absolutely sincere," who believes strongly in his ideas "and who hopefully can carry them out." He also said, "I personally did not have the slightest doubt about the honesty of Obama, the 11th president since Jan. 1, 1959, when he expresses his ideas." Well if a mass murder trust him and wants him to succeed that's good enough for me. I guess I was wrong about Obama.
Or maybe it's possible Castro wants Obama to succeed because he and Obama share the same vision of government.

Raul Castro also had nice things to say about Obama. "Earlier Wednesday, Raul Castro said Obama "seemed like a good man" and wished him luck." Obama has offered to negotiate with Raul Castro and to ease restrictions on Cuba. I guess we'll just be negotitating how much we will ease restrictions. I'm sure telling Castro you planned to ease them anyway won't give him the upper hand in those negotiations.

Is there an evil dicator anywhere in the world that Obama won't negotiate with. Maybe Obama can offer Florida in exchange for them not killing or imprisoning anyone that disagrees with them.,2933,481407,00.html

Obama is no Abe Lincoln Here's the Proof

So apparently somehow Obama got the idea he is the next Abraham Lincoln. Maybe it's all the media coverage saying how great he is even though he hasn't accomplished anything yet. Or it could be that he's just an overconfident self-absorbed egomaniac.
This quote from June 29th 2005 tells us everything we need to know. "This week comes the previously careful Sen. Barack Obama, flapping his wings in Time magazine and explaining that he's a lot like Abraham Lincoln, only sort of better. "In Lincoln's rise from poverty, his ultimate mastery of language and law, his capacity to overcome personal loss and remain determined in the face of repeated defeat--in all this he reminded me not just of my own struggles." "Mr. Obama said he keeps a photographic portrait of Lincoln on the wall of his office, and that "it asks me questions."

"I'm sure it does. I'm sure it says, "Barack, why are you such an egomaniac?" Or perhaps, "Is it no longer possible in American politics to speak of another's greatness without suggesting your own?"

Obama was sworn in on the Lincoln bible a feat no other President, probably because of modesty, had ever attempted. His Inauguration dinner is a tribute to Lincoln's favorite foods. If you want to see the menu you can go here. After that he took the same route that Lincoln had traveled in the inaugural parade. He also is took the same train route Lincoln took to D.C.

Lincoln owned his own business and was a Captain in a state militia. He learned leadership in these areas. Show me one place Obama learned leadership. Being a senator for 143 days before he started running for office doesn't even come close. Even if you take the liberal number of 304 days that's still less than a year of experience. Plus Obama now has exactly 12.5 hours of executive experience. Something Lincoln learned has a business owner and a Captain.

President Lincoln did what he had to do to keep this country united. Including suspending Habeus Corpus rights. Obama can't handle the fact that we use enhanced interrogation techniques on people that want to kill us all. They even want to kill the liberals. Of course from talking to liberals I know they'd rather we sacrifice ourselves for our ideals. What good are ideals if their is no one alive to defend them? I'm all for standing up for what I believe in. I do it all the time. That's what being a conservative is, but when I believe in something that's contrary to what liberals believe in they say I'm a coward because I won't die for their ideals.

Lincoln made hard decisions in possibly the most difficult time in American history. I think the fact we still exist as a union 143 years after the civil war proves he made the right decisions.

Hearing Obama compared to Lincoln is absurd. How absurd? Let's Compare these two men.

President Obama:
The First African American President

44th President of the U.S.

3 terms in Illinois State Legislature

4 years as U.S. Senator

Called for withdrawal from Iraq in 2006

Backed off his promise to take
public financing in General Election

President Lincoln:
The First Republican President

16th President of the U.S.

4 terms in the Illinois State Legislature

1 term has U.S. Congressman.

Spoke out against slavery said it was
"founded on both injustice and bad policy."

Made Thanksgiving a national holiday

Captain of Illinois Militia company

Known has honest Abe

Ran a small business

Worked to pass the 13th Amendment of the
Constitution ending slavery

suspended Habeus Corpus during Civil War

Won the Civil War

Obama may have a similar biography as Lincoln, but that is where the similarities end. He has neither the courage nor the conviction to be anywhere near the man Lincoln was much less the President. I wish Obama well as President I hope he does a good job however the first thing he needs to do is realize there is only one Abraham Lincoln.

Happy MLK Day.

Even though it's no longer MLK day I thought I'd wish everyone a happy one anyway. MLK was a man that stood up for his principles and was willing to die for them. I feel sure he knew that standing up for what he believed in would not be popular and may get him killed (which it did.) He did it anyway because he understood that his actions could affect generations of people that would come after him. Partly because of his courage we elected our first black President this year. However Obama is no Martin Luther King Jr. He's also not Abraham Lincoln even though his belief that he is will be the subject of a later post. Perhaps Tomorrow. Actually make that later today.
