Second Thoughts About Obama

No, not by me but by "Bones." I know where I stand as concerns Obama. By now, you should too (know where I stand as concerns Obama).

Second Thoughts About Obama

by Dry Bones

It's really weird. It seems like some formerly anti-Obama people are now ready for something good, fresh, and innovative to come out of the Obama Presidency.

To see what the thinking is in Iran and the Arab States I had to turn to MEMRI, the folks who translate media reports from the original Arabic and Persian.

MEMRI quotes . . .

Iran's Ayatolla Khatami in this past Friday's sermon:

"It will be a foolish thinking if one thinks there will be change in U.S. policies. There are others behind the stage." -more

and says that. . .

Abd Al-Bari 'Atwan, editor-in-chief of the London daily Al-Quds Al-Arabi called on Obama to:

"'Impose American Model of Equality, Rights, and Opportunities on All Arab Countries,' Saying: In an Arab Country, Obama Would Be Told, 'You Are a Slave'; 'We Arabs Are The Epitome of Racism'" The interview aired on BBC Arabic TV on November 7, 2008:" to see the clip (subtitled in English) click on MEMRI TV

and, in an overview, MEMRI reports that

Reactions in the Arab world to the election of Sen. Barack Obama as U.S. president fell into two main categories: expressions of appreciation for the American democracy which had made his victory possible, and attempts to assess the impact of his election on the political future of the region.

  1. Trying to be everything to everybody, already Obama is talking out of two orifices: one for the Jews who voted for him and for the Israelis who were foolish enough to believe what he told them when he went to Jerusalem and the other for the Arabs re dividing Jerusalem, indefensible Israeli borders, etc.

    Guess which orifice he's talking out of to the israelis and Jews?

    How about the Saudi "peace" plan that Obama-man is partial to?

    Great president? No!

    Good president? Also No!

    Acceptable president. No!

    Any saving features? No.
