"And I believe the nation that invented the automobile cannot walk away from it."
~ President Obama during his first Sate Of The Union address.
How embarrassing! Our president does not know that we did not invent automobile and now Germans are probably laughing at us!

"Right now in Congress, they’re working on the budget. And just like the last time the House prepared to spend ungodly amounts of money, the Democrats have excluded the Republicans. Even worse, they’re not letting the public see the bill before it’s voted on.
Meanwhile, the Obama administration is working on its defense bill. And to make certain that everyone sings from the same hymnal, they’ve ordered top defense officials to sign a secrecy oath that they will not discuss the details with anyone outside the federal government."

"Barack Obama has been embroiled in a cronyism row after reports that he intends to make Louis Susman, one of his biggest fundraisers, the new US ambassador in London. " Read on.
"Though he demonstrated in the campaign that he has a rare gift for inspiring the country with new belief in itself, Mr. Obama has not yet captured either the grit the moment requires or the fury it provokes. He has not explained in a compelling way why Americans who followed the rules need to sacrifice more to help those who flouted the rules."
and this from Jennifer Rubin:
"Much as it may pain the former community organizer, Obama’s job is not now to criticize, demean, rile and anger the public. We thought he, better than most politicians in recent memory, understood the power of rhetoric to lift and inspire, but maybe that only worked as a campaign tactic. Now there is no George Bush to kick around. And the result seems to be a surly and depressive presidency. Perhaps we were not the change we were waiting for after all".

Thank God for youtube! Here Obama promises that the public will have 5 DAYS to look online and find out what's in his proposed bills before he signs it. Well, another promise broken. Barack Obama is going to sign the largest spending bill in US history on Monday, It had only been posted online for 12 hours before it was voted on in the US House and Senate.
President Obama seemed to agree it was time to stop the fraud and abuse in federal small business contracting programs when, in February of 2008, he released the statement, "Small businesses are the backbone of our nation's economy and we must protect this great resource. It is time to end the diversion of federal small business contracts to corporate giants."
Since making that statement almost a year ago, President Obama has consistently refused to make good on his campaign promise, and support legislation to stop Fortune 500 firms from hijacking federal contracts designated for America's nearly 27 million small businesses.
Not only has President Obama refused to propose even a single policy to address the problem, but he actually changed his Web site to remove the appearance that he had ever made the statement, "It is time to end the diversion of federal small business contracts to corporate giants."
Is someone counting the broken promises? It's interesting to see how many it will add up until his re-election?

He dictates, complains and campaigns — ultimately not very effective means for a president. And the high rhetoric mixed with nasty partisanship is not only confusing, but it undercuts what for him was the key attraction for many voters — you remember: his temperament.

A Senate committee today abruptly canceled a session to consider President Obama's nomination of Rep. Hilda Solis to be labor secretary in the wake of a report saying that her husband yesterday paid about $6,400 to settle tax liens against his business -- including liens that had been outstanding for as long as 16 years.

-- President Obama, Feb. 4.
Catastrophe, mind you. So much for the president who in his inaugural address two weeks earlier declared "we have chosen hope over fear." Until, that is, you need fear to pass a bill.
I was not raised in a particularly religious household. I
had a father who was born a Muslim but became an atheist,
grandparents who were non-practicing Methodists and
Baptists, and a mother who was skeptical of organized
religion, even as she was the kindest, most spiritual
person I’ve ever known. She was the one who taught me as a
child to love, and to understand, and to do unto others as
I would want done.
I didn’t become a Christian until many years later, when I
moved to the South Side of Chicago after college.
The decisive issue here is leadership. The lack of it is what is plaguing the Obama administration. Every war needs a successful general, and this administration doesn’t have one yet.No kidding!! Obama has never been a leader in any issue in his life. He just wrote two books and you can read his books and you will know there is nothing there!!! Don't blame us, we made it clear in this blog that he just likes to give speeches , that's all he knows!
Too often bills are rushed through Congress and to the president before the public has the opportunity to review them. As president, Obama will not sign any non-emergency bill without giving the American public an opportunity to review and comment on the White House website for five days.
Obama has now signed two bills into law — the Lily Ledbetter Act and SCHIP — and in neither case did he wait five days before signing.

Obama runs the risk that every rebuff is regarded as a personal setback. His first full week in power has been clouded by the farcical presence of Rod Blagojevich, the impeached former governor of Illinois, and revelations that Tom Daschle, his choice for health secretary, had failed to pay more than $128,000 in taxes.
The president’s foreign policy offensive also got off to an uncertain start. Critics claim there are too many czars and special envoys at the White House and State Department, who will end up fighting rather than problem solving.
Where is the outrage? Nearly 1 million people are without power in ice storm.. I guess the outrage was only for Katrina. HOPE and CHANGE is merely a campaign slogan.
