An Historic Day

Per David Espo at the Associated Press:

WASHINGTON (AP) – Barack Obama stood at the threshold of the White House on Monday, summoning fellow Americans to join him in service as tens of thousands flocked to the nation’s capital to celebrate his inauguration as the first black president. “Tomorrow we will come together as one people on the same Mall where Dr. King’s dream echoes still,” said the president-elect, invoking the memory of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. on the national holiday in his honor.

Of course, David Espo fails to realize the irony of calling Obama “black” and referencing Dr. King’s dream in back-to-back sentences. Mr. Espo, here’s a refresher on Dr. King’s dream:

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”

And in case you haven’t already seen this video of Dr. King, the very first word Dr. King uses to describe the qualities that he thinks makes one qualified to be President is: integrity.

What is the integrity, what is the content of character, of a man with over 150 documented lies?

What is the integrity, what is the content of character, of a man who promised to be “open, transparent, and accountable“, but won’t release his original birth certificate?

Tuesday, January 20, 2009 will be an historic day.

Will our nation’s first “African-American-Indonesian” President be inaugurated?

Or will the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court have to swear in the Vice-President because the President-elect has failed to qualify?

Either way, it will be an historic day.

    Yawn. Obama will be sworn in tomorrow. All your stupid lawsuits will be dismissed one by one, like they should. And hopefully Obama will be the president we all hope he will be. And in 4 (probably 8) years, you will still be whining that all that he has done until then is null and void.

    And you know the constitution you hold so dear is not set in stone. It can be amended, like it has been so many times before. So if ever a bitter neo-con judge tries to make a name for himself and for some strange reason the SCOTUS doesn’t overturn it, the constitution can be amended pretty quickly to shut you up for good. With the following that this guy is getting, I can easily see 75% of the states going for it. Which I think would be hilarious from my Canadian perspective, it would pave the way for a President Schwarzenegger one day!

    Neither, Red. We’re going to swear in Barack Obama, honest loyal American, as our nation’s 44th President. I believe in my very first post on this site, I told you how all this was going to play out. Now go to work.

    So it is done. What a great day.

    The dream has been deferred.

    what happened to the Huckabee prophesy? I thought he was supposed to be sworn in?

  6. I was wondering how long it would take for someone to ask me that.

    Clearly, I was wrong, and I am deeply troubled by how I could have been so wrong.

    I felt I was told that the only way Huckabee could lose was if he quit. Maybe he quit too soon. Huckabee quit on March 4th, after losing the Texas primary. McCain did not display the “1191″ sign until the next primary, a week later, in Mississippi…a state surrounded by states that Huckabee had won, so Huckabee likely would have won MS if he hadn’t quit, and if it were revealled that McCain is not a Natural Born Citizen (he was born in Colon Hospital in Colon, Panama, not on U.S. soil or on the U.S. Naval base) then the party would have been forced to pick a candidate who was Constitutionally qualified to hold the office of President of the United States.

    Even after Huckabee quit, I pushed on, believing that a miracle would raise him to office.

    I was wrong, and I admit it.

    And again, I am deeply troubled by how I could have been so wrong.

    Being a false prophet is not a good thing.
