Dear Diary: November sucks!
By John Lillpop | MenWithFoilHats Contributor
If one could somehow take a quick, private peek into President Obama’s personal diary, the month of November 2010 might have a cryptic entry along these lines:
Indeed, for President Obama, November has been nothing but awful news compounded by awful news, made all the worse by an administration that refuses to admit the brutal truth:
America rejects the President’s socialist policies. Case closed, end of story!
Obama’s bad-hair month began on November 2, when Americans registered an emphatic and unequivocal NO! to Obama’s CHANGE, and to most Democrats that supported same.
Some seats in the U.S. House are still undecided, but even so, voters managed to clean the People’s House, an accomplishment that a certain Shrieker- woman was unable to deliver.
Nancy Pelosi failed to clean house because her swamp cleaner was programmed to root out only corruption identified with an R.
Bad guys and women with a D next to their names were ignored; thus, folks like William Jefferson, Charles Rangel, Maxine Waters, and Patrick Kennedy escaped Pelosi’s sanctimonious judgment.
Voter repudiation of Obama policies was also evident in the U.S. Senate where the GOP picked up six seats, effectively ending Obama’s ability to rule by fiat.
After conceding that he suffered a “Shellacking,” in the elections, the President escaped on a 10-day junket through Asia where he hoped to bag a free-trade agreement with South Korea and persuade G-20 attendees to follow his lead on dealing with China.
However, instead of asserting his regal power on the global stage, Barack Obama was rebuffed time and again, thereby confirming the verdict delivered by America voters on 2 November, which was:
President Obama’s judgment is very much suspect and must be aggressively challenged when necessary!
Back “home” after the Asian fiasco, the president sought to enhance his self-esteem and public image by winning confirmation of the START Treaty with Russia in the U.S. Senate.
Once again, President Obama was trumped, this time by Senator John Kyle, the well-respected Republican from Arizona who has said that ratification should not be rushed during the current lame duck
President Obama is still fighting this battle, but it will take 67 votes in the Senate to confirm.
While the SALT Treaty is being sorted out, Obama’s scheme to try terrorists in civilian courts suffered a major blow when jurors convicted Ahmed Ghailani of conspiracy to blow up government buildings
in the al-Qaida attacks on two U.S. embassies in 1998, but acquitted him on more than 280 other charges.
That legal silliness almost surely means an end to Obama’s misguided pipe-dream of closing GITMO.
