My FaceBook connection “John Adams” posted a status update
“It will be interesting to see if the moderating qualities of the office temper Obama’s views or empower his ego. http://formykountry.com.via Twitter – 12:12am – 3 Comments
And I commented following that.

Ego is a good thing, if connected to a hunger to leave a positive mark. It is a terrible thing when it is an “I am right and the decider in chief though I don’t know what to do, let me ask Cheney who to bomb next.”

What I have seen so far I fear is the ego of Obama will just be to big for him to really do what is best for America.
I hear General Franks on Fox news state that Obama will change his views on Iran after he is briefed. When asked are you sure he responded he will or their will be an uprising of the people.
to which I had to respond.
Thanks, I needed a good laugh.
Good source, Fox News, to get the views of the general who “managed” the hunt for Bin Laden in 2001 (still going great I hear), the “mission accomplished” in Iraq in 2003 (not so sure we found WMDs he said he was sure we would find). He’s the same guy who endorsed George W. Bush (true War Zero) in 2004 after retiring and becoming a security consultant – gee I wonder where he makes his money.
Glad you rely on reliable and obviously objective sources to worry about Obama’s ego. Last time I checked, it was not Obama who claimed to talk to God and be doing Jesus’ work on the planet. LOL.
BTW, “according to Time magazine, on November 21, 2003, Tommy Franks said that in the event of another terrorist attack, American Constitutional liberties might be discarded by popular demand in favor of a military state.”
He must actually be Dick Cheney’s secret ‘don’t ask don’t tell’ lover or something!
Let’s talk in 2 years and see how Obama is doing and how Franks’ consulting gigs are going selling fear and ‘security’ solutions.
He’s just another Giuliani but in a military cut suit, cashing in his accidental place in history with businesses cashing in on the fear they monger while sucking up to George W. Bush, easily the worst President in this country in 100 years.
If the Dems screw up, we throw them out in 2 years, and Obama can go in four years if he is not a good President. But, even with both hands tied behind his back, duct tape over his mouth, three injections of morphine, codeine and heroin in him, Obama would be smarter and more lucid that George Bush on his best day.
And, to the good old General, I say, “Tommy boy, Frankly, in General, you don’t know a damn thing about what you’re talking about now.”
What do you think? Comments welcome!
