Hits and Misses at the Coronation

President Barack Obama is sworn in as the 44th President. His wife sticks out her tongue at Chief Justice Roberts who, according to the left wing New York Times, stumbled over the oath just to embarrass the incoming President or to take away somehow from the moment. Perhaps he stumbled when he saw Michelle sticking out her tongue at him as if saying, “You’re screwed.” Note that “The One” is laughing.

The Misses:

It should be noted that “The One” couldn’t get through the swearing in ceremony and get it right without the aid of a teleprompter. While the NYT is blaming Roberts for the stumble, it should be noted that the replay shows “The One” in error. But, lordy, don’t even mention it or you will be accused of hate crimes.

MSNBC's play-by-play
clears it up.

First, Obama jumped in before the "do solemnly swear" phrase, which seemed to throw the chief justice off his stride. Roberts rendered the next phrase as "that I will execute the office of President to the United States faithfully."

"That I will execute," Obama repeated, then paused like a school teacher prompting his student with a slight nod. Roberts took another shot at it: "The off ... faithfully the pres ... the office of President of the United States."

Then, of course, came the highlight of the day when the old “race baiter,” the so-called Reverend Joseph Lowery ended his prayer with more racial hatred: “… so brown can stick around, yellow can be mellow and white can do what is right.” Get ready for four years of this type of action by those like the Rev. Lowery and his ilk.

It seems the LSM, as usual, has not posted this outrageous racial comment on any of the websites, so I suppose the link will have to wait until the hoopla dies down and a real news agency gets the story and posts it online where the rest of the country can see what is in store for the future.

The leftwingers at the coronation could not hold their ignorance in check and booed President Bush as he took the platform. The left has preached for the past 8 years the “why-can’t-we-all-just-get-along” sermon, but when it comes down to where the rubber meets the road, it doesn’t apply to them.

Unfortunately, the speech was flat and really said nothing that will be remembered as uniting or strengthening the country. Wall Street didn’t think so either and fell and fell and fell until the ending bell.

The Hits:

It finally over ... well, except for the parade, which was the longest in the history of such an event. But that was to be expected; the anointed one has arrived. The question is, when will the same crowd be calling, “Crucify him. Crucify him!" My guess is as soon as they realize that the check is not in the mail, he isn't paying the mortgage, filling up your gas tank, or lighting up your life.

It's going to be a fun four years, and I can’t wait until those who elected “The One” realize that they are the ones he was talking about when he said, "I am a blank slate ... however, some will be disappointed.”

Does that mean that I wish failure upon Mr. Obama? No, it does not as long as he is directing this country to be a stronger country and not a weakened socialist state. I will applaud him when he does something right, but I will give him absolutely no quarter when the direction is toward socialism and more big government. I did the same thing in the last administration and, believe me, I had ample opportunity to call them to task for spending like “drunken sailors.” It seems they forgot the promise made for a smaller government and attempted to out-democrat the democrats. They failed, for no one can spend other people's money better than the democrats of the last dozen years. We are seeing the sad results of the democrats' spending habits that commenced in fervor in 2006.

This President has not had the opportunity to carry out his tax and spend ideology, one which failed in the 30s, failed in the 60s under Johnson, and will surely fail again if that is the road he chooses. We can only hope that he will pick up a history book, written by someone other than a revisionist, and see that FDR’s programs were, for the most part, total failures and only served to stay the depression longer. We have seen the failures of the Great Society; the programs that have survived are dinosaurs and need to be cast aside as relics from the past, and new, leaner, more useful programs designed.

The new President said that we need to stand on our own two feet, but that cannot be done as long as the government is propping up those who choose not and will not stand on their own. Today’s budget deficits have been fueled by entitlement programs that have done nothing except to create a welfare, nanny state. It’s time to say good-bye to that type of society.

The President has called for a change in Washington and the way things are done. Let him begin by dismantling the nanny state and making this a country that once again understands that, if you want to prosper, it is up to you and not the government. If he can do this, then he will have brought real change to Washington and to this country. If he takes the different road, then it will only be more of the same.

So much for cleaning up the enviroment. Oh, I forgot, the hired help can do that at taxpayer expense.

Woodstock didn't look a lot better. Some of you don't remember Woodstock, it was the original "love in".

I suspect it will be difficult for the normal retinue of black racists to claim a racist America now that the majority of the people elected a black-American. I said "difficult," but not impossible ... it's what they do for a living.

The coronation is "finally over," but America's problems have just begun under an extremely liberal president and sychophant congress. I can't imagine how it will be a "fun" four years.

Well, we all know who'll be having fun, and it will be at our expense.

Congress will be spending more money than we can supply, and the national debt will be out of sight.

Never mind, though, "we've" made history.

Mustang, this is what I meant by fun in the next four years. The far left is already beginning to scream and claim that he isn't living up to his promises. Next will be those who won't find a check in the mail, their gas bill will not be paid, their mortgage won't be paid by the government and for them the par-teee is over before Maddog 20-20 is served.

Which re-run did you all watch? I've even run Google and can't find some of that stuff.

GM Roper said...

Ticker, we noticed some of the same misses. I have yet to find a hit. I commented on several lefty sites that it was a bore and trivial and the vituperation was amazing.

Cheers, you done good my friend!

What stuff are you speaking of. Be specific or are you just being a smartass?

Well said, well said. You and I both know that Lowery is perhaps the most racist man on the planet, up there with Hitler. Obama tried to hide his agenda, but he failed! We know exactly what he's up too.
