Barack Obama, the Etch-A-Sketch President
coming from a mile away. It really doesn’t take a Nostradamus to predict these
things in our president’s behaviors. It was obvious after watching Obama’s
preview video of his BHO-SOTU address where he posted a ‘trailer’
on his web site. And even the hardest of hearing heard about Obama reading
Reagan on his Christmas vacation flight to Hawai’i. No one should be surprised,
despite the juxtaposition.
Everyone from the HuffPo to Breitbart found
this topic irresistible. But of all the many Reagan/Obama media mentions,
Mark Rudd’s warning
words, “feint right,
turn left,” are the most ominous, and to this writer’s mind,
And so last week, we witnessed a feeding frenzy from the
media and the blogosphere, discussing the change in Mr. Obama’s
attitude and rhetoric. Some made for juicy, thought provoking, reading. Others

Let us reflect upon some of the absurd, failed,

Obama compared to Marie Antoinette. Like Marie, Michelle mysteriously gave
up her license to practice law, or was disbarred. (same with hubby)
- Obama, the next Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (Probably because of the
Beer Summit, combined with the work Obama’s DOJ has done, absolving the
New Black Panther
Party of that bogus voter intimidation case.)
- Gandhi: Obama wins Nobel Peace Prize for his excellence in reading other
people’s utopian words from a teleprompter. (One year later, we are in awe
over the Global Peace this man has singlehandedly created, particularly in the
Middle East.) (Obama
