Words from the President on Iran’s Unrest

no comments

With Iran in the middle of widespread unrest, I think it is important to look at what our President has said on the issue.

“All who live in tyranny and hopelessness can know: the United States will not ignore your oppression, or excuse your oppressors. When you stand for your liberty, we will stand with you.
Democratic reformers facing repression, prison, or exile can know: America sees you for who you are: the future leaders of your free country.
“The rulers of outlaw regimes can know that we still believe as Abraham Lincoln did: “Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves; and, under the rule of a just God, cannot long retain it.”
“The leaders of governments with long habits of control need to know: To serve your people you must learn to trust them. Start on this journey of progress and justice, and America will walk at your side.”
Those are some powerful sentiments, and statements.  This is the kind of thing that the defrauded voters in Iran need to hear from us, and badly.
The quote above is from George W. Bush in his second inaugural address.
Obama hasn’t been so supportive of freedom in this case.  I guess that’s the difference between a President who has the balls to do and say what he thinks is right, rather than what will make him look good on TV.

Advice for President-Elect Obama – Make Promises; Lots of them

no comments

As self-appointed advisor to President-Elect Obama, I am duty-bound to offer advice as I have it, on how to succeed in the office of president.  Since I’m not tied to any particular field of work, I don’t have to limit my advice to economic, international, or domestic issues.  Instead, I offer my advice for success of the man in the office itself.  Today’s advice: Promise something to someone every single day you can.

When I look back through history at Democrat Presidents, the greatest personal successes came from those who promised a lot.  Promises are an important tool in the Democrat arsenal, and one that you haven’t used to great effect so far.

Advice for President-Elect Obama: Take Credit for Everything

no comments

In my new role as advisor to President-Elect Barack Obama, it is my duty to provide the best advice I can.  The goal of this advice is to elevate the new President and the Democrat Party.  I really wish my advice could be for the betterment of the United States and their citicens, but too often those two goals are mutually exclusive.

Today’s advice is this.  Take credit for anything good that happens during your presidency.  Add to that the following corollary.  Give blame for anything bad to George Bush and the Republicans.

My Advice for President-Elect Barack Obama Pt. 1

no comments

Now that Barack H. Obama, the only messiah to actually have H. as a middle initial, has won the election, he can assemble his transition team, staff, and advisors. Since I’m a firm believer that not all advice should be taken from people who believe exactly as you do, I am applying for a role as advisor to the future-president. With that in mind, I am offering a series of short pieces of advice in this blog.
**Part 1 – Middle-Class Tax Credit**
There are undoubtedly plenty of people in America who think you were serious about your tax-cut plan. That happens every presidential-election year, so it’s not surprising. Now, though, it’s time to start transitioning the promises into realities. Now it’s time to break your promises while making it look as if you really tried to keep them.
