Confusing as hell trying to figure the old saying when it is in this context, what with the first black president being dissed by the second black president and all.

Pot-KettleHow much difference is there really?

His wife is now Obama’s secretary of state, but Obama had some tough words for the actions of former President Bill Clinton during the campaign.

“We had to figure out how to deal with a former president who was just lying, engaging in bald-faced lies,” Obama explained to Wolffe.

Let’s just hope that Obama understands that his successor may very well also have crappy manners embedded in his leadership style and dis him, too.

Let’s hope that happens, and often, too.

Don’t get me wrong, I think Clinton is a dirtbag.  I saw him when he came to Michigan and I was totally amped – hated the guy but was in awe of being near the president.  But if you’re going to be leader of the free world, you ought to be able to have a certain poise, which Obama tries to pull off and fails every time due to his total lack of class.

“Today, when a concerted effort is made to obliterate this point, it cannot be repeated too often that the Constitution is a limitation on the government, not on private individuals — that it does not prescribe the conduct of private individuals, only the conduct of the government — that it is not a charter for government power, but a charter of the citizen’s protection against the government.” –author Ayn Rand (1905-1982)

WHO is he talking about?  (emphasis mine)

Obama said in Turkey that Americans “do not consider ourselves a Christian nation or a Jewish nation or a Muslim nation”. John McCain was criticised in 2007 for saying the US was “a Christian nation”, later amending this to “a Judeo-Christian valued nation”.

So NOW Obama is proud of his middle name and hoping that he can walk the thin line between embracing his muslim nature yet still being “christian”.  Well, his buddies in the press might just help him do it.

It is important to note that “if you actually took the number of Muslim Americans, we’d be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world”.

So says President Barack Obama.
