It's no secret that I think Barack Obama is an idiot. And that I think that those that voted for Obama are idiots. But, during certain times of the year, I try to put that kind of stuff aside and do the whole "can't we all play nice" kind of thing.
For example, here on this little blog, I've posted proclamations by the current president regarding Thanksgiving (2009) and Veterans Day (2009, 2010).
Why not Veterans Day proclamation post? Simple. The current president didn't issue any such proclamation this year. Check for yourself. Find one for Thanksgiving, too.
Oh, and find one for Christmas. Not just for this year, but for any of the three Christmases since he occupied the Oval Office. They don't exist. The last Presidential Proclamation regarding Christmas came from President George W. Bush in 2008.
Now, you will find a proclamation on Hanukkah for this year. But you won't find one for last year. I suppose after this year's missteps regarding Israel, he did this, hoping to mend fences. But, Obama being Obama, he screwed it up. Though the proclamation got the dates right, the actual ceremony was 12 days off -- and all jacked up.
He did issue a statement on Kwanzaa this year, as well as in 2010 and 2009. Maybe if Kwanzaa was more than 45 years old, he'd issue a proclamation. Till then, made-up holidays got to take what they can get, I suppose.
Anyway, about Obama. There's no hope for this guy. And, if you are planning on voting for him in 2012, there's no hope for you. And, if he wins, there's no hope for any of us.
