Well since the last time I posted was President's Day, figured I would stick with the Holiday thing and what better way to resurrect my blog than on Easter.
I know, I know...I have no excuse. Lazy.
Sure, there was plenty to write about, and my goal is to do better now.
So, to save time this will be a quick summary of events since President's Day. Look for normal Barometer Posts from here on out.
What's been going on? Well...
In my hood, a Target rose from the ground.
A tornado smacked Atlanta around.
Rev. Wright made an issue of being brown.
And Bush, well he's still a clown.
Of course the big story lately is Obama's reverend, and the comments he made in his church. Do I agree with what he said? No.
Do I understand where those comments originate? Absolutely.
In the end, we are not electing Rev. Wright...we are electing O'Bama, and he handled this extremely well.
He did the right thing by condeming his words, while still admitting he has ties to him that can not be broken. His response speech was brilliant.
Obma's response to Wright, was gut-wrenching, loyal, and deeply, deeply Christian, and his speech is the most honest speech on race I have ever heard.
It is a speech we have all been waiting for for a generation. Its ability to embrace both the legitimate fears and resentments of whites and the understandable anger and dashed hopes of many blacks was unique in recent American history.
I have never felt more convinced that this man's candidacy is a historic opportunity. This was a testing; and he did not merely pass it by uttering safe words. He addressed the painful love he has for an imperfect and sometimes embittered man. This is a candidate who does not merely speak as a Christian. He acts like a Christian.
Meanwhile....our boob of a President was roasted recently and sang us a tune. I wanted to puke after watching this. The video has been pulled off this site, but you can read the lyrics here.
You can watch the nauseating bootleg video here.
Here he is making fun of the worst natural disaster in the nation's history, where thousands of Americans died because of his and Brownie's incompatence...really funny. It's so hilarious: the man who committed treason, who lied to a Federal judge, outed a CIA agent, obstructed justice with Scooter Libby...leading OUR nation into an unnecessary war based on lies, where hundreds of thousands have died...all for what? Watch for yourself. Just keep a barf bag close by.
More Barometer on the way!
