You got it Mobama we have to deal with. Deal with the headlines like today’s tribune "Bound for Glory". Are they talking about the inauguration that has not happen yet or Obama’s rule which we don’t know about, or it is all about a black man in the white house. Hard to understand what the excitement is all about. I remember from the primary him saying he is going to “clean up Washington” and now the world knows that he has no experience in that too. But your right, I will deal with it. I will be responsible for my household and my finances. I will try to use my money to help this economy and not another country. When I hear thing his positions I will keep in mind he is only human. Will you?

Can we pass a law right now to make Obama President for Life? Can't we get the Pope to make him a saint? How about a national holiday in his name like MLK? Let's all compare him to Lincoln! Isn't it possible that he is the REAL Messiah? He's bigger than Jesus! Yes, he can!!
Congratulations, Obama voters, you just got a President elected who could not have gotten a government job requiring a security clearance otherwise because of his closest associates! Oh, that's right, you don't care!

What is the difference between Bono (Obama'a buddy now) and Jesus. Jesus does not think he is God. The people of the US have placed Obama in that role, sorry Bono. I cannot wait for the slap of reality. What's that Obama, but I thought you said..................
