Just Words
Posted on 02.04.09 by Danny Glover @ 10:58 pm

You can learn a lot about the character of a man by the words he speaks. Let’s take a look at Barack Obama’s words in the opening days of his presidency:

Jan. 23, in a pointed exchange with Republican lawmakers about Obama’s plan to stimulate the economy: “I won.”

Feb. 3, after being repeatedly embarrassed by tax scofflaws he picked to serve in his Cabinet: “I screwed up.”

What inspiring words, what great presidential speech, will Obama deliver next week?

  2. What’s next? Dunno, but the first word in the sentence will be “I”.

  3. It’s more than the change I’d hoped for. It’s a record!

  4. Wow, you’ve got this sarcasm thing down pat. I’m following you since you have obviously gleaned onto the path of essential truth. Not only that, but you apparently got this wilderness living thing nailed! Thanks for the insight.

  5. Came in via Instapundit.

    There’s a lot of commentary right now about how President Obama is learning on the job, how these weeks have been rocky for him.

    I dunno. I was happy to hear about the use of the Predator and I’m snickering at the anti-war left and the defense of rendition some of them are now employing. My feeling is that if President Obama focuses on his power and duties as President, he’ll more than meet the needs of the job and those of us who are conservative might find ourselves an unexpected ally. I’m not thrilled about his abortion stance one bit, and I’m scared to death of unions (esp. public sector ones) getting even stronger, but I’m just keeping my fingers crossed that the Presidency by its very nature has to conflict with Congress, and he’ll have to fight his former Democratic colleagues in their quest to bankrupt America and run a foreign policy developed by Winnie the Pooh.

  6. Here in Brussels, Belgium the local newspaper “Le Soir” is having a full page orgasm because Obama is the rare politician who has admitted to making a mistake. If he keeps it up they will die of an overdose of orgasm. The next four years are truly going to be revolutionary!
