Will Barack Hussein Obama become just another name in the long list of defamed, failed, and corrupt Illinois politicians? Will he follow in Governor Blagojevichâ€™s footsteps as another Democrat whose party abandoned him? Has his fall from political grace begun?
In the short span of time this administration has been in power, it has raised many questions in the minds of average Americans about the role of government, its competency and constitutional authority. In a rare flash of rationality, Chris Matthews, host of MSNBCâ€™s Hardball had some questions of his own:
â€œPresident Obama has his chin out on about every hot issue out there, health care, terror trials, job losses, even the breast cancer report. Heâ€™s exposed and vulnerable. His poll numbers are dropping, is he just too darned intellectual? Too much the egg-head? Why did he bow that Japanese emperor? Why did he pick Tim Geithner to be his economic front man? Why all this dithering over Afghanistan? And who thought it was a wonderful idea to bring the killers of 9-11 to New York City; the media capital of the world, so they could tell their story?â€
While Matthews’ rambling diatribes are nothing new, keep in mind this is coming from someone who just a year ago said on Morning Joe:
â€œI want to do everything I can to make this thing work, this new presidency work.â€
Now heâ€™s lamenting the fact that Obama bowed to the Emperor of Japan, and worries aloud about the upcoming trial of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.
In a segment last Friday Matthews states:
“I worry about Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. He’s going to find himself an ACLU lawyerâ€¦ He’s going to use that as a platform from hell where he gets to spew his point of view on the Middle East â€“ that kind of thing he’s going to sell with the beard and everything â€“ The New York Post is going to be reborn with this guy as the enemy. I just worry that he’s going to win this argument for months before he gets executed, if he does get executed. If that ever happens, I worry about this becoming a show for the bad guys.”
We are all worried Chris.
MatthewsÂ stepping slightly out of line could be an indicator of the disappointment mounting among the disillusioned.
As usual, he still doesn’t quite get it. While he worries about Obamaâ€™s polls and a platform for terrorists, he canâ€™t see the problem with giving terrorists the very rights our soldiers died defending- an American birthright.
The unholy alliance between the Left and radical Islam will bring new meaning to â€œshow trialâ€ as they both drag the CIA and American policies through the streets and put on display for the world to see how much we have â€œchanged.â€
