Jan of this year this Country swore in the 44th President and the first African American to hold that position. I am not a supporter of BO but I am glad that ceiling was broken although I wish it was by someone other then Mr I Have to please everyone.
Hillary Rodham Clinton left the Senate and became SOS. She was one of the best choices as Obama is a Dove and Hillary a strong Hawk. We need Hawks to head both the State and Defense Departments because frankly we need to be able to frighten the bad guys out to destroy our country. Hillary is a very popular Secretary of State with poll numbers showing that the majority of Republicans approve of the job she is doing. Her approval ratings are a lot higher then those of her boss who is below 50 and heading into the low 40s range. Hillary has approval ratings in the upper 70s.
We have also had a few terriorist attacks involving Muslims. One man was an Army shrink who shot 23 people killing 13. He was taken down by a female Police officer and was in a coma.
On Christmas day another nut case decided he was going to blow up a plane in Detroit killing as many people as possible but the passengers twarted that flight.
Obama issued weak statements on both attacks but nothing that is going to help keep this sort of thing from happening again.
We had the balloon boy and his nutty parents and the Obama gate crashers. Rather you like Obama or not putting his life in danger should be treated as a serious crime even if their intention was only publicity. Here's something the media can do and that is stop giving these nut cases 15 minutes of fame and these knuckleheads will start using their brains.
Sarah Palin wrote a best selling book while Nancy Pelosi's book flopped. Sarah's numbers are as high as Obama's and she is no longer an elected official.
Chelsea Clinton announced her engagement and Hillary fell and broke her elbow. The press used that event to discuss how Obama was marginalizing Hillary more then likely just to keep that fued up and running. Who cares about facts in the media anymore when fiction is so much better. I wonder if these yahoo's in the media realize that a sitting President and his/her Secretary of State should be on the same side. Yes idiots in the media the President should have his/her SOS's back and she should have it. The media also plays with other non stories that pitted Hillary against Rice and Samantha Powers but Obama always took Clinton's side because after all why appoint someone to the State Department and refuse to listen to her. Had he listened to these yahoos then this Country would be in grave danger.
Oprah's show is over mainly because she endorsed Barack Obama in 2008 and the Republican women/Hillary supporters never forgave her for that and they left her show in droves.
Obama won the Peace Prize for no reason whatsoever and should have given it back but since he has no class that wasn't going to happen.
Michelle Obama became the third most malianged woman in America although she is guilty of nothing except planting her garden. She hasn't said anything offensive yet she is maliagned and not just from people opposed to her husband. I have had to defend this woman against rich stuck up black people who looked down their noses because Michelle was born in the ghetto. I thought Michelle was to nice to these snobs I feel she should have told them to kiss her ghetto butt. I am not a fan of Michelle Obama but I intend to never again stand by and allow another woman to go through what Hillary Clinton went through.
We replaced Sandra Day O'Conner with Justice Sotomyer women had to force Obama to name her.
Teddy Kennedy died of brain cancer and his neice Caroline ran into the fist of the Clinton's when she lost her bid to replace Hillary Clinton in the Senate.
Bill Richardson is facing indictment or investigation and got zip from Obama for his betrayal of the Clinton's and of course John Edwards got caught cheating and has a baby.
Health Care is going to be passed despite its unpopuliarity which frankly means the Dems can kiss their seats good bye.
