The 46% Are Watching You, President Obama


So Obama is now President-elect… And the American stock exchange crashes in response. But hey, don’t blame me, I didn’t vote for him.

And neither did 46% of America.

And these 46%, over 56 million people, are now warily watching President-elect Obama to see if he will keep all his promises.

His promise to tax the electorate more… Anyone who earns more than $250,000 $200,000 $150,000 $120,000 Whatever he d*mn well pleases.

His promise to tax anyone who buys shares more.

His promise to intentionally makes energy costs “skyrocket”.

His promise to bankrupt the coal industry.

His promise to surrender immediately just as victory is in sight.

His promise to give the leaders of rogue nations all the leverage.

His promise to expose 6 year olds to graphic sex.

His promise to kill more babies in the womb or leave them to die once born.

Or were these promises, as usual for the pre-President Obama, just politically expedient lies?

The 46% who were not fooled by your fast talking and the complicity of the liberal media are watching you, President-elect Obama.

    The British news editor, Harold Evans, former editor of the Times of London and the Sunday Times, and author of The American Century, expressed his dismay at the US media bias in, Mad about The One, published in The Guardian’s OpEd, Comment is Free:

    In this 2008 race, it’s the American media that have voted very early and often. They long ago elected the star graduate of Chicago’s Democratic machine, Barack Obama.

    I am not talking of editorials in newspapers, though Obama has the preponderance of the endorsements over John McCain. Obama certainly deserves the credit for recruiting impressive advisers and running a more efficient campaign machine than any one in the US’s political history.

    What’s troubling to anyone old-fashioned enough to care about standards in journalism is the news coverage in mainstream media. Forget the old notions of objectivity, fairness, thoroughness, and so on. The nastiest rumours on both sides haven’t been published, but the coverage has been slavishly on the side of “the one”.

    What about Obama of the old vintage? Cautious and reserved in exuding any warmth for India and the Indians lest his Pakistani friends and constituents misunderstand.

    It is said that as a student he had more Pakistani friends than Indians. He felt more comfortable in the company of the Pakistanis than Indians. It was his choice and nobody could grudge it.

    It was at the invitation of one of his Pakistani friends that he visited Islamabad, Karachi and Hyderabad (Sind) in the 1980s. Nobody can hold that against him.

    As an Indian, one will be but human if one felt troubled that he did not disclose this till he became the Presidential candidate. He disclosed this—-as if in passing— when it was alleged that he did not understand the Islamic world and its divisions. He mentioned his visit to Pakistan to show that he knew about the divisions in Islam, about the Shia-Sunni differences.

    Why did he keep mum on his visit to Pakistan till this question was raised? Has he disclosed all the details regarding his Pakistan visit? Was it as innocuous as made out by him—-to respond to the invitation of a Pakistani friend or was there something more to it?

    One would have expected the US journalists to have gone into this, to have quizzed him on it. But, they didn’t.

    As I read about Obama’s visit to Pakistan in the 1980s, I could not help thinking of dozens of things. Of the Afghan jihad against communism. Of the fascination of many Afro-Americans for the jihad. Of the visits of a stream of Afro-Americans to Pakistan to feel the greatness of the jihad. Of their fascination for Abdullah Azzam, who came to Pakistan in the 1980s and started teaching in the International Islamic University in Islamabad. Of the fascination of some Afro-Americans for him. Of the frequent visits of Cat Stevens, the pop singer, to Pakistan and of his fascination for Islam and the on-going jihad. Of his conversion to Islam.

    One might think that I am morbid in entertaining such thoughts and questions in my mind. But morbidity is understandable when one has a feeling that one has not been told the whole story, but only a part of it.

    It is the right of the Americans to decide who should be their President. It is my right to worry about the implications of their decision for the rest of the world, including India.

    I agree with the comments posted by Indian Says.
    My concern is also of his inclinations, especially in faith. There are just too many unanswered questions about this man. Some would say, skeletons in the cupboard.
    Yes, 46% Americans will be watching. And millions more who feels uneasy about his appointment. And God will be watching.

    Islamabad, Nov 6 – Hoping that a new era of peace will dawn with the election of Barack Obama as the US President, the Taliban has asked the President-elect to change his country’s policies towards it and end the war in Afghanistan.

    Reacting to Obama’s victory in the American polls, top Taliban spokesman Qari Muhammad Yousaf Ahmadi told reporters: “We want to tell the world and the West to pull out their troops from Afghanistan as the (party of US President George W Bush) has lost the race because of their flawed polices.” Another Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said it would be “unwise” if Obama tried to solve the Afghan problem militarily. He said it would be “wrong thinking” if Obama tried to increase US forces in Afghanistan to “make Afghans slaves”.

    Mujahid pointed out that the Russians too tried to suppress Afghans by deploying thousands of soldiers but could not succeed.

    “We are hopeful that Obama will withdraw forces from Afghanistan. The US should try to solve its financial crisis instead of keeping troops in Afghanistan,” he said.

    Here comes change:

    The Washington Independent reported before the election that John Kerry is a leading candidate for Barack Obama’s Secretary of State:
