The One’s first 100 days
The One’s first 100 days
while most in the media, step all over themselves to declare The One’s first 100 days in office an incredible success like none we’ve ever seen, i am just wondering what the big deal is — just where are the successes?
we know he has been the beneficiary of wildly inappropriate and unrealistic expectations – its tough to be a messiah. and yes, he has looked very busy. but set aside all of his rhetoric and increasing flip flops and well, here it is: he’s gone to a few countries; met with a few leaders (despots mostly); he’s talked a lot at press conferences and such; he has been photographed a lot; and he’s had a bunch of parties – some with conga lines – glad-handing and grinning all along the way.
2009 pulitzer prize winning politifact has compiled more than 500 campaign promises candidate Obama made, and has charted his progress on them. according to their estimates, The One has offered ‘no action’ on a whopping 410 campaign promises and in 100 days, he has broken six of them.
for those who voted for hope and change, how’s that working for you?
the ny post has compiled in honor of his first 100 days, a list of obama’s 100 mistakes — compiling everything from the disasterous porkulus, promoting fear to get compliance, the overturning of key pro-life initiatives, the decision to close gitmo, the cheats, crooks, and liars in the cabinet, taking over corporations and in essence becoming their ceo, the whole torture flip flopping fiasco, trillions of dollars in new debt, and well, on and on and on.
and of course there was that ‘unfortunate incident’ yesterday where The One’s lackeys buzzed nyc in af1 all for a photo op. where are the thinking adults? not in this administration.
but i’ve saved the most delicious for last. today in my huffington post briefing :cough: one of the pundits had this to say:
“Pundits have been feverishly speculating about what Barack Obama’s most important accomplishment is in the past 100 days. I say it came today. Senator Arlen Specter is switching from the Republican to the Democratic party. The specter of Specter as a Democrat will enrage Republicans and should come as big relief to Democrats. Specter’s move isn’t opportunism but a concession to reality. For now, Obama has won a major battle without firing a shot. This will be remembered as a turning point in the historic Obama presidency.”
pitiful. even his minions – the liberals who blindly follow The One – are searching for that one meaningful moment during his fluffly 100 days, falling short in such a big way. if moonbats only really knew how much we disliked arlen spector…now if only susan collins and olympia snow would follow him.
my cotillion sister, nicedeb, made this awesome photoshop in honor of The One’s 100th day as well as his fly over. isn’t it great? so is she!
