:Barack Hussein Obama: 1st Year Review.

by Mark Baker

One down and three to go. Barack Hussein Obama, the current POTUS via 'Community Organizer, via 142-day US Senator, has given us... just about one would expect from an inexperienced individual. But for the sake of reflection, let's review the 'highlights' of the first year of the Obama Presidency:

1. The American people inaugurate a President with a total of 142 days experience as a US Senator from the most politically corrupt city/state in America.

2. The U.S. Congress rushes to confirm , Eric Holder, whose law firm we later find out represents seventeen Gitmo Terrorists.

3. The CIA Boss appointee, Leon Panetta, has absolutely no experience or background in the intelligence community.

4. We got the second most corrupt American woman (Pelosi is #1) as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton.

5. We got a Tax Cheat for Treasury Secretary, Tim Geithner, who did not properly file his own taxes to the tune of $34,000 ("An honest mistake," says the White House's top flack. Oh? ).

6. A Commerce Secretary nominee who withdrew due to corruption charges.

7. A Tax cheat nominee for Chief Performance Officer who withdrew under charges (Hmmm, notice a pattern?).

8. Labor Secretary nominee, New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson, withdrew as a Grand Jury Investigation ramped-up to look into charges he awarded no-bid state contracts to friends and large financial contributors.

9. A Secretary HHS nominee (Tom Daschle) who withdrew under charges of cheating on his taxes to the tune of over $128,000, and also 'forgot' to report all his Speaking Fees (Taxes are for the 'little people' to pay apparently).

10. Multiple appointments of former lobbyists after numerous campaign promises that no lobbyists would be appointed under an Obama Administration.

All this occurred just during the first three weeks, but who's counting? There's many more shameful items and lies (eg., what about all the "CSPAN Transparency" promises Obama waxed-on about everywhere he spoke as a candidate?), but 10 is sufficient to establish that he's just another dirty liar with an agenda.

America is being run by the modern-day Three Stooges; Barry, Nancy and Harry and they are still trying to define stimulus and how it supposed to have 'saved us?' The congress passes the $800,000,000,000 (that's $800 billion)pork-loaded spending bill where the government gives you a smidgen of your tax dollars ($13 per week), making you feel so good about yourself [stimulated], that you want to run out to Wal-Mart and buy a new Chinese-made HDTV!

Here's the good news though:

1. Obama flew to Copenhagen and went before the International Olympic Committee to 'leverage his Presidential Influence' with the Selection Committee to choose Chicago for a host city. Chicago didn't even make the finals, getting eliminated in the first round.

2. Obama flew to New Jersey to promote the sitting Democrat Governor, John Corzine for re-election; Corzine loses to Chris Christie. Corzine became first New Jersey governor to lose a re-election bid since 1993, when then-Gov. Jim Florio, a Democrat, lost to GOP challenger Christine Todd Whitman.

3. Obama flew to Virginia to promote Democrat Creigh Deeds for Governor. Republican, Bob McDonnell won the race easily by a vote of 59%-41%. In his win, McDonnell received the highest percentage of the vote for Governor of any candidate since 1961.

4. In early January last month, Obama flew to Massachusetts to promote Democrat Martha Coakly in the special election to replace a dead Ted Kennedy for the Senate Seat. Coakly looses to Scott Brown. This seat had been held by Kennedy since 1962, who was himself elected in a special election in 1962 to fill the vacancy created when his brother, John F. Kennedy, was elected President in 1960.

These examples don't bid well for a President who has had more then three times as many TV appearances as either of the two previous presidents had at the same points in their first year. Apparently Obama doesn't carry anywhere near the same degree of clout that the Office typically wields.

Could it be that the American people aren't quite as stupid and naive as Obama and his legion of smug socialists think we are? Even though Air Force One is expensive to operate, in light of the proven results of BO's 'Support Visits,' I hope he flys here to Michigan to 'support' the likes of Debbie Stabenow, the Levin brothers and John Conyers. Obama's become the political equivelent to the eboli virus and many in his own party are looking to distance themselves from him.

Here are a few other things 'unique' about the Obama Presidency:

* Though claiming to be Christian, the Obama's have not attended church since the inauguration.

* Obama is the 1st President in history who did not hold a traditional Christmas with his family.

* And finally, he is the 1st president to remain on vacation after a terrorist attack (albeit a failed one). Given that 'Panty-Bomber,' Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab's crotch-bomb (80 grams of pentaerythritol tetranitrate {PETN}) was interupted by Dutch passenger, Jasper Schuringa, Obama received a Christmas present while his daughters didn't.

Press On, Mark.
