Obama's inauguration was today, and what do we have to show for it?
170 million dollars in spending, with no crazy liberals complaining. When Bush took office and his spending was not even half this amount, all the crazy liberals went crazy, "It's a recession, how could you spend so much?" And now, we are supposedly in the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, and the liberals are in their private Jets, simultaneously crying about the crazy conservatives who drive SUV's who don't take their bikes to work.
What else? He is the first ever elected president with a political scandal before he even made it into office.
Yay for the country :-/.
Not saying *he* is responsible for anything that had anything to do with Blagojevich, but he definitely should've condemned the bozo, not been like "We have one president at a time" on like every issue ever presented.
But whatever, let's not lead this into a political discussion. I'd like to share random dumb things I've heard in reference to the Inauguration.
1- At a wedding one of my friends said "OMG, the country just elected a Muslim into the white house! Watch him get sworn in on a Quran" (I heard similar type from at least 3 other people since).
- I wonder if anyone was shocked that he didn't actually get sworn in on a Quran.
2- After the Inauguration, one lady started talking about how the stock market plummeted while Obama was speaking. So this other lady goes "I thought people liked him!"
No sweety, its the people who *don't* actually have anything to lose that like him.
Same lady goes "I'm sure it will get better, he has a lot of hope."
Why don't you just sing the HaTikva. Seriously! HOPE can get us through anything *rollseyes*
That's right. I can hope for money, and then it will appear... why does this sound freakishly like a kollel nation? The few rich people will support everyone, while the system goes completely bankrupt?
And you know what, I would love this guy to succeed, I truly would. My success, depends a lot on the success of this country, and this country depends on Obama's success (kill me now!).
If he doesn't succeed, well then...it took a Carter to get a Reagan.
Pray people, pray.
P.S... isn't Moshiach supposed to come now?
