I never imagined an Obama Administration would be so bad, so quickly. Faster even than the writers of 24 can dream up another bad season. I mean, I know I spent most of last year telling you why he shouldn’t be President. I’ve admitted to never being that thrilled with John McCain as a candidate. Still, he was the better choice. And Sarah Palin was unquestionably the preferred choice over Joe “What did I just say?” Biden.
I’ll admit too that I briefly got caught up in the Hopey-Changeypalooza of the historic inauguration. I got over that pretty quickly. But who amongst us knew that this man could do so much damage in such a short amount of time?
I can’t disagree with the President when he says America is not a Christian nation. While we were certainly founded on Judaeo-Christian ideals, and while for our first 200 years, our leaders acknowledged God and call our citizens to prayer in times of need, we’ve not lived up to that idea in quite some time. But for Obama to proclaim that and then just a few weeks later say this?
Welcome to America, “One of the Largest Muslim Countries in the World”!
Andy McCarthy, The Corner at National Review Online
By contrast, of the approximately 1.5 billion Muslims in the world, there are about 200 million Muslims in Indonesia, 196 million in India, 165 million in Pakistan, 132 million in Bangladesh, 75 million in Egypt, 64 million in Iran, 33 million in Morocco, 32 million in Algeria, 31 million in Afghanistan, 26 million in Iraq, 25 million in Ethiopia, 24 million in Saudi Arabia, 20 million in China, and 15 million in Russia, to name just a few countries. In fact, there are 2 to 3 times as many Muslims in Burkina Faso (approx. 7.5 million) as there are in America. So obviously, one can see why the president would say the United States is “one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.”
Outside of the absolutely frightening aspects of a statement like that he’s way off in his math. No wonder he’s goobered up our economy so badly.
And I thought, after all, that one of the reasons to vote for him was that he would make American respected again. Not so much…

Obama Makes You Sacrifice for Him
Ben Shapiro, TownHall
Obama is fond of calling upon Americans to make sacrifices — or rather, he is fond of forcing Americans into sacrificing themselves at a time and place of his choosing. Heroic sacrifice requires volunteerism, or at least an element of extraordinary choice; Obama’s sort of sacrifice runs along Agamemnon-esque lines. He names the time and the place, and you are expected to put your neck on the altar.
Climate of Hate, World of Double Standards
By contrast, Obama was silent about the military recruiter attacks that left 24-year-old Pvt. William Long dead and 18-year-old Pvt. Quinton Ezeagwula gravely wounded. On Tuesday afternoon — more than 24 hours after the attack on the military recruitment center in Little Rock, Ark. — Obama held a press conference to announce his pick for Army secretary. It would have been exactly the right moment to express condolences for the families of the targeted Army recruiters and to condemn heinous acts of violence against our troops.
The Real Saudi Bow
Dick Morris and Eileen McGann, Front Page Magazine
The Obama Mideast policy is turning our priorities on their head. It is painful to watch and it is likely to get worse until Americans get a fundamental point: Obama is determined to end sixty years of support for Israel and this trip to the Middle East is the start of it.
Finally, there’s this…
