Before We Carve Barack Obama’s Face on Mt. Rushmore

Written By : John Hawkins
December 5, 2008

In the entire history of our country, I’m not sure there has ever been a presidential honeymoon period as tender and loving as the one that Barack Obama is experiencing today.

In Perry County, Alabama they have already voted to create a paid holiday called “Barack Obama Day.” That’s an honor not bestowed on “lesser Presidents” like George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Ronald Reagan, and Teddy Roosevelt — whose accomplishments, though great, surely will not eclipse those of “President Government” after his time in office. But, that’s just a county holiday. Topeka activist Sonny Scroggins, with the support of the NAACP, is actually working on a national holiday for Obama.

Given the way that our mainstream media is fawning over Barack Obama, we shouldn’t expect much resistance to the idea of creating a holiday to honor a man whose only real accomplishment so far is winning elections.

For example, MSNBC anchor

Then there’s Chris Matthews who said it is his “job” to make “this new presidency work,” a sentiment that seems to be widely shared in the media, even if most of them aren’t foolish enough to share that view of their “job description” with their audience.

That’s part of the reason why Obama’s hard core supporters, which would include most members of the mainstream media, haven’t had much to say about the fact that he has already started rapidly backing off his campaign promises on everything from the windfall profits tax to the Bush tax cuts, to a rapid withdrawal from Iraq. Of course, many of http://www.rightwingnews.com/mt331/2008/11/obama_supporter_i_wont_have_to.php” TARGET=”_blank”>who famously said she was backing him because,

“I won’t have to worry about putting gas in my car, I won’t have to worry about paying my mortgage. You know, If I help him, he’s gonna help me.”

That’s the problem with promising to be all things to all people in order to get elected: if you actually win that way, they expect you to pay up.

On January 20, 2009 — Barack Obama is going to face an extraordinarily difficult situation that would test the most capable of Presidents. It’s not quite a “I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy” spot, but it’s going to be tougher than a Waffle House steak, particularly so for Obama because you can’t vote “present” in the White House.

So, before we carve Barack Obama’s face right there on Mt. Rushmore beside of Abe Lincoln, perhaps we should wait to see if he’s as good at tackling this country’s very real problems as he is at raising money, reading speeches off a teleprompter, and chucking his former friends and allies under the bus.
