Emperor Obama should wear clothes
I did not doubt for a moment what the outcome of our last election would be. Nor did I question, like some, whether or not America was ready to elect its first black president; I knew the time had come.
What I did not expect was for the world to hoist our star quarterback, Barack, on its collective shoulders and flaunt him through the village streets in a ticker-tape parade of ridiculous triumph....

Despite their anti-war rhetoric, President Barack Obama have adopted the congressional Democratic position that would leave open the option of keeping tens of thousands of U.S. troops in Iraq. Those who would reach such a lofty office in the eyes of the world have entangled themselves deeply in the affairs of this world. Those who are elected to this office that is so highly esteemed among men have few choices left to them. When in their hearts they know exactly where they stand, and which way they'll go when the showdown comes as many Democratic and Republican leaders have. They are prisoners of the compromises they have made to attain the office, prisoners of their advisers and counselors, prisoners of the policies of their party and the values of their nation.
