1_20_09: CHANGE !!
Dana Delaney (some actress, I have never seen her in anything) was asked by a fox news reporter what the most important thing that Obama can do now that he is president. She said that he needs to "make abortion accessible to all women in all nations." Did you hear a single democrat, actress, reporter or college professor ever say that abortion was the most important thing that the president can do at any time DURING the election? I certainly did not. They were well behaved then. They talked about war, privacy, global warming...
Two things that Obama has in abundance is Charm and Self-confidence.
As we enter into his first term, the electorate appears willing to follow our new leader almost anywhere. People follow confidence, especially in troubled times - if you add an warm smile to that confidence, we'll go almost anywhere.
Policy? Ideas? Doctrine? These are now meaningless concepts as we are told that we are to 'give our new leader a chance.'
A chance to do what? I'll give him a chance. He has signaled a move to the center (a weak signal), especially regarding economic issues.
A woman asked me today, what would cause you to turn on him. Any one of the following, I replied:
2. Gays in the Military
3. The retreat on the war on terror.
She disagreed with me 100% on each item. She accused me of intolerance. She almost said that she would turn on our new president if he didn't do the exact opposite of my direction. I didn't accuse of her of intolerance.
In the end, the stimulus package under BHO would have been 90% the same as the stimulus package had MCain won the election or Bush remained in office. The things that matter over the long run, the things that make America the greatest nation on earth are in jeopardy.
Tomorrow, on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, hundreds of thousands of Americans will protest the 1973 ruling - an abomination of law if there ever was one. I expect that Obama will sign, as an executive order, the Freedom of Choice Act that very day...just a few thousand feet away from these silent protestors. If we say anything but 'thank you, sir, may I have another,' then we are not supporting the president.
I'll give him a chance. That is more than Bruce Springsteen and Al Franken did for the former president.
