I got an email from my Uncle Donald looking forward to what a wonderful year 2009 is going to be:
Things look good for this new year: Immediately after his inauguration, Obama will balance the budget, revive the economy, solve the real estate problem, solve the auto industry problem, solve our gas/alternative energy problem, stop the fires and mudslides in California, ban hurricanes and tornadoes, stop identity theft, reverse global warming, find Osama, solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, get rid of corruption in government and achieve world peace. Then on the 7th day, He will rest.

I must admit this feels more like a coronation than an inauguration. People are expecting a lot of him. Remember Spiderman” With great power comes great responsibility”. Now where did I put my Obama boxers?
We saw that fleece material! For a moment I thought I was pregnant and having morning sickness, but then I just realized it was my disdain over him being on a sheet of material…as if the coins aren’t bad enough…
I grow weary of all of this messiah comparison nonsense. EVERY presidential candidate makes promises they can’t or won’t keep. So why are so many people ready to use the messiah metaphor. I ask How can he be a messiah and the Antichrist at the same time? Seriously, people He doesn’t fit the criteria of either, he is just a man in a very important job at a very difficult time. Whether he will accomplish anything or not has yet to be seen. If you actually expect him to live up to every single promise he made then you are not a student of history. I have to wonder why people suddenly expect more of him than every other presidential candidate that we’ve had in the past. Regardless of whether you like him or not stop with the ridiculous comparisons to religious figures. It’s just stupid.
