Good riddance to a period in which people have been 'famous' for, well, being famous;
an era when the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded presumptively to someone who would go on to foment more racial unrest since H. Rap Brown and Huey Newton, who would do more to divide America than any President since Lincoln. Farewell to a footnote.
Perhaps, looking back with appropriate shame, America will forge ahead to restore our prestige in the world, trust among our allies, and regain the Constitutional Republic we had before the autocratic hubris that has typified Government service.

I gotta chuckle every time I hear a MSM report on Obama's final high approval ratings, because its almost always followed by the dismal ratings his policies get in the same poll.

This writer has a good point: thats almost worse than him receiving personal ratings matching his low performance ratings, people don't care enough to even rebuke him - its like being dismissed as a child who's constitution is deemed too delicate to be able to handle the truth.

In the end, historical irrelevancy will be more damnation than hellfire.

There is no doubt in my mind that Obama will go down as one of the worst Presidents ever.  And considering Carter, that is saying a lot. And to quote an old country and western song - Thank God and Greyhound your gone.

You Didn't Build That

When Obama was first elected on Hope And Change the poor and middle classes were all in.  They bought into all the promises.  The poor expected Manna From Heaven to fall into their laps.  The middle class expected jobs and lower taxes.  Both expected race relations to dramatically improve.

At a base level, these Hopes were envisioned to be pluses, additions, and improvements to the existing state of affairs.  People believed their station in life would move in a positive direction.  Instead, Obama delivered minuses. 

As Obama's failures rolled out one after another every excuse in the book was offered up by the talking heads.  Less is more the pundits said.  Just give it more time was the word from the Ivy League experts.  Time magazine told us, "We're all Socialists Now".

Manna never did fall from Heaven to the poor - Obama you didn't build that.

You said you'd focus like a laser on jobs, jobs, jobs - Obama you didn't build that.

You promised to lower our taxes - Obama you didn't build that.

You said you would build a bridge on race relations - Obama you didn't build that.


At the end of the day the false promises of Barack The Punisher all vanished into thin air like a puff of smoke.  He did manage to deliver on the Change part of the equation, but that change was all minuses, negative and destructive.
