We are now a mere 60 days into the Age o' Obama and many people are now realizing how inept and dangerous President Obama is, has been and will continue to be in the Oval Office.
This little piece in the DC Examiner from Noemie Emery that takes to task all of those who spread the fear of the possibility that Alaska governor Sarah Palin could have been the vice-president.
Yes, it would have been a disaster to have Gov. Palin in the vice-president's chair while the stock market went on it's 2,000 point nose dive. Oh yes, how can we forget the current occupant of the vice-president's chair, Joe Biden. I mean, he just does not know the website number to the internet site of the recovery office he is in charge of. I'm sorry, that is website address. But this is the massive brain that is Joe Biden.
Or how about saying such insipid things as that democracy in the United States is older than that in Europe? OK, that was the intellectual Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton. Oh, and she could not even pronounce European leaders' names. And her minions at the state department could not even get the Russian translation right for "reset".
Could you imagine if a Vice-President Palin had admitted that she was overwhelmed with the task of being the vice-president? Well, President Obama did. That was the reason given to the Daily Telegraph in London over the shabby treatment their Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, received at the hands of the most brilliant administration ever. So brilliant that they gave Prime Minister Brown a box set of movie DVDs that I could have got down at Blockbuster.
But no, Gov. Palin was an "embarrassment" according to Christopher Buckley, son of the late William F. Buckley. Hmm, was not young Mr. Buckley involved in a nasty divorce because he was cheating on his wife? Hmm, now that is an embarrassment!
Why, Gov. Palin only graduated from the University of Idaho. IDAHO?! Is that even a part of the United States? Must be what the elites were thinking trashing that fact. No, how dare someone of her "qualifications" think that she should be anywhere near Washington D. C.!
And yet, some of these so-called conservatives were taken in by a smooth-talker from Chicago that promised Hope and Change. That he would right all the wrongs of the United States. That he would make the oceans recede. Now that is beautiful rhetoric, but can no longer hide the fact that he has no idea of what he is doing.
We have a vice-president in Joe Biden that can not get anything right, when he is not lifting language from British political leaders. There is Mrs. Clinton at the state department and it is obvious that she is in way over her head. And let us not forget Tax Cheat Timmy Geithner at Treasury. He is one of those that engineered the brilliant AIG "bailout" strategy that has so far bled the American taxpayers only $173,000,000,000 while helping out foreign banks and his former Goldman Sachs compadres.
Yes, the United States is so much better off that Gov. Sarah Palin and her running mate, Sen. John "F--- You" McCain did not get to the Oval Office. We are seeing only the beginning of the Gang That Can Not Govern Straight and the havoc they have wrought and will continue to do so.
