Second Time's the Charm

Obama took the oath of office again minus the television cameras and adoring public. This time it was behind closed doors with a few reporters and associates. What's missing from the picture?
If you said "the Lincoln Bible", you're right. He did manage to get sworn in minus the Bible after all, since he's considering this the "real one" because of the way the first one was flubbed.

Too Little Too Late

This article from Yahoo News is titled "What We Don't Know About Obama", and if the press had been as willing to look at him with this critical eye months ago things might not have been such a cakewalk for Obama.

Even this is more of a puff piece than serious journalism, giving the new president wiggle room if he wants to change his mind about what he said on the campaign trail. Still, it's more than we saw during his campaign, in which every sneeze, burp, and blink he made was considered a pearl of wisdom and a sign that God Himself had placed this man on Earth to lead us.

I guess time will tell if Obama is going to run things his way or cave to liberal pressure.

How Obama Will Handle the Mexican Crisis

With the recent announcement by CBS News about how crime and gang violence in Mexico has gotten out of control and is the biggest threat to the United States, all eyes are on his majesty to see what he's planning on doing to protect us. Well, given his previous track record, here's my prediction on what his plan will be:

1) Blame the Republicans. "Yes, it's the Republicans' fault for the crime in Mexico. They were so busy capturing Sadaam Hussein (man, I love that man's name) they didn't even pay attention to what was happening in Mexico. Bad, bad Republicans!"

2) Ignore the problem as long as possible. "Crime? What crime? Yes, I know we haven't heard from any of the Texas towns near the border in weeks, but that's just a sign of the booming growth they've experienced lately! Um, by the way, has anyone heard from Houston lately?"

3) Raise taxes. "We need money to build a picket fence along the border so the nice Mexican crime lords can see where to stop their evil ways. Here, I'll smile for the camera and that should stop them. I'm too pretty to fight."

4) Work on his 2012 re-election campaign. "As you can see, this is a problem that can't be fixed in 4 years. I'll need at least 8 to do it right. As a matter of fact, let's just make it 12 and see what I can really do!"

If you look back at my first post, you'll notice I mentioned the Obama-led U.S. would turn their backs on Israel. I mentioned how something would happen that would cause Israel to look like the bad guys and force the U.S. to take a harsh stance of one side or the other. If you're watching the news this week, you'll see that Israel is going all out to stop the Hamas before Obama takes office in the U.S. Originally, he was pro-Israel in their attack against the terrorists. As of today, he is leaning more toward a "this has got to stop" stance. By the time he is officially sworn in as President, look for that to change to an ultimatum to Israel to stop or be stopped. I could be wrong, but it looks pretty solid.
