What Will Obama Accomplish In His First 100 Days?
Filed under: — Robert Farrow @ 11:37 pm

by Regina Sztajer

President Barack Obama has been sworn in as the new leader of the free world with much pomp and cheers of millions wishing him well. The problem is Obama has taken upon himself the most dangerous presidency in our nation’s history. The media has fed the people steady propaganda concerning his political greatness. With no experience of running a city or state government and so little time in the Senate do we know what his capabilities are? Can the American people really understand what has been fed to us also as propaganda concerning the economic crisis? Do we understand the economy in the facts and figures mumbo jumble of Alan Greenspan language? If not what does Trillions mean to the average person who every day has a few dollars in their pockets and some loose change to spend ? What we don’t want is a huge federal government, city and state government hungry to spend on pork projects with our tax money so politicians can win re-election because they can say, Look What I Did For You! We also don’t want to be taxed and taxed to fill their kitties while so many are unemployed.

Bi-partisanship is great if we can trust the new administration to put it’s money where it’s mouth is. While the media slammed the opposition during the election Obama accepted the mainstream media’s one sided support. They made him into a media star with change and hope as the watch word while everyone else was nothing to talk about. “It protected him from attack, examination, rumor, fact, his own position, inexperience, and history gleefully promoting him as hope incarnate, a panacea for what ills all the world,”
(www.humanevents.com 1/20/09.)

In the past the media prided itself in being the watchdog of our political process but in this election it deceptively placed Obama on his throne and helped the Democrats walk over the republicans for the majority vote. Mainstream newsprint is on the way out with papers going out of business and politician may in time be hard pressed for support.

Obama has assembled an impressive White House and Cabinet during a failing economy and two wars with larger-than-life Washington geniuses that don’t always succeed. In the 1990′s, Alan Greenspan and Robert Rubin were supposed to manage and repair the economy. Now Rubin is making excuses for being involved in high-risk investments and for helping oversee the very demise of Citigroup which lost $10 billion in the last three months. Greenspan has admitted to Congress that his revered economic philosophy had a flaw and he is blamed for looking away in the face of the housing bubble. Obama’s treasury choice Timothy Geitner forgot to pay his taxes for a couple of years and as president of the New York Fed was involved in the decision to not rescue Lehman Bros. I wonder if he will be approved by the Senate? What type of confidence can we citizens have in him?

Will our national deficit reach $2 Trillion? If so what happens to Social Security and Medicare’s financial status? People are losing jobs and confidence in government while politician decide how to tax us and spend our money. Remember how Rome burned while Nero their Emperor fiddled away? Why should our hard earned tax dollars pay off selfish Wall Street bankers and corporate CEO’s? Power will be with the government not the people if they keep printing money that we have to pay for or we borrow from China.

Obama has big ideas for a stimulus package in the first 100 days!! Will we recognize our nation in a couple of years if we are broke and are a brand new socialist country? Who will watch the store while the Democrats rob us dry and Obama calls all aboard to the train to where we don’t know. Obama the new Teflon king who has a strange cult personality in that he surrounds himself with un-American’s that the media decided we should ignore. He has his own symbols, seals and flags that glower from within a MAOIST sunburst on posters, bumper stickers and T-Shirts. Obamablia to celebrate a politician that has been sainted with the title historic I find is hard to grasp.

Obama’s concept of a presidency is to have enlightened people working with him to reach a consensuses. Wasn’t it President Harry Truman who said the presidency meant the buck stops here with him. It’s his fault if he fails not someone else. Will Obama have the confidence in his own ability to do the job because till now he hasn’t had to make a decision that will affects millions. Is he truly that confident or just naive? Will a Democratic Congress investigate a president of their own party in a tough oversight committee late night meeting? If Congress fails it will be up to the voters to hold his feet to the fire if he doesn’t protect and defend the people of this great nation of ours.

Monroe anchors Flacco's blind side as Ravens LT (The Associated Press)
Eugene Monroe is right where he wants to be: anchoring the left side of the Baltimore Ravens offensive line. The Ravens hope he stays there a long time, as evidenced by the five-year, $37.5 million contract they gave him in March. The bar at left tackle is high in Baltimore, given that the team's first-ever draft pick was tackle Jonathan Ogden, now a member of the Hall of Fame. Since Ogden's retirement after the 2007 season, however, the Ravens have struggled to find a permanent answer at the position.

NFL roundup: Cowboys LT Smith signs eight-year extension (The SportsXchange)
The Dallas Cowboys signed left tackle Tyron Smith to an eight-year extension worth close to $98 million. The total value of the deal is close to $110 million.

Steelers to retire Hall of Famer Greene's No. 75 (The Associated Press)
The Pittsburgh Steelers are retiring Hall of Fame defensive end Joe Greene's number No. 75. The team announced Wednesday that Greene will be honored during a ceremony on Nov. 2 when the Steelers host the Baltimore Ravens. Greene, the fourth overall pick in the 1969 NFL draft, helped Pittsburgh win four Super Bowls during his 13-year career. The announcement comes just over a month after the passing of former Steelers coach Chuck Noll, who drafted Greene to become the cornerstone of the ''Steel Curtain'' defense.

Steelers to retire Greene's No. 75 (The SportsXchange)
The Pittsburgh Steelers announced Wednesday they will retire Hall of Fame defensive tackle Joe Greene's No. 75 in a ceremony on Nov. 2. The Steelers will host the Baltimore Ravens at Heinz Field that day. Greene's number will become just the second that the Steelers retired, joining Ernie Stautner in achieving that distinction. Greene, the leader of the "Steel Curtain" defense during the 1970s, helped lead the Steelers to four Super Bowl victories and six AFC Championship game appearances.

Browns hope they are on the run in 2014 (The SportsXchange)
The Cleveland Browns scored only four rushing touchdowns last season and managed just 1,383 yards on the ground, so in the offseason general manager Ray Farmer made a point of changing that unit. Four days into training camp, running back is the most improved segment of the offense. Ben Tate is running with the first team, but rookie third-round draft pick Terrance West is pressing him. Tate, West and undrafted rookie Isaiah Crowell are new.

Tuesday's Sports In Brief (The Associated Press)
The NCAA agreed to help athletes with head injuries in a proposed settlement of a class-action lawsuit that college sports' governing body touted as a major step forward but that critics say doesn't go nearly far enough. The deal, filed in U.S. District Court in Chicago, calls for the NCAA to toughen return-to-play rules for players who receive head blows and create a $70 million fund to pay for thousands of current and former athletes to undergo testing to determine whether they suffered brain trauma while playing football and other contact sports. Unlike a proposed settlement in a similar lawsuit against the NFL, this deal does not set aside any money to pay players who suffered brain trauma. BASEBALL LOS ANGELES (AP) - Vin Scully is staying in the booth for the Los Angeles Dodgers.

AP source: Gordon hires attorney, plans defense (The Associated Press)
Josh Gordon has a new, high-profile teammate to help him fight the NFL. Facing an indefinite suspension for marijuana use, Cleveland's talented wide receiver has hired attorney Maurice Suh to represent him at his appeal hearing with the league this week, a person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press. Suh, who helped Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman win an appeal for a suspension in 2012, will be with Gordon in New York on Friday, according to the person who spoke to The Associated Press on Tuesday on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the talks.

NFL roundup: Seahawks' Winston signs for one year (The SportsXchange)
Eric Winston signed a one-year deal with the Seattle Seahawks, who envision the eight-year veteran at right tackle. In addition to signing Winston, the Seahawks placed wide receiver Taylor Price on injured reserve, released cornerback Chandler Fenner and guard Bronson Irwin and signed wide receiver Randall Carroll and cornerback Terrell Thomas. Thomas, a USC product recruited by Carroll, was a second-round pick of the New York Giants in 2008. ---Arizona Cardinals linebacker John Abraham remained absent from training camp on Tuesday and the team had no indication as to when he might show up.
