After the election dust settles, it's question and answer time

Well, now that the election dust has settled a bit, it’s question and answer time with your host.

Q: Well, what do you think of the Obama administration so far?
A: Actually, there isn’t REALLY an Obama administration yet, not until he actually takes the oath of office. But I have to admit, creating an “Office of the President-Elect” is pretty inventive, although it really doesn’t have any power whatsoever, other than for public relation purposes.

Q: And there WON’T be an Obama administration, because Obama is not really a citizen! He was really born in Kenya, right? There’s lawsuits over it, and …
A: Actually, all indications are that Obama has just as much right to be president as McCain, Palin, Biden or anyone else who ran. He was born in Hawaii, and state officials there vouch for his birth certificate being authentic. For the facts that clear the air on this, see Ronald Kessler’s article here at NewsMax (not exactly a DNC outlet); check out the shady side of one of the main proponents of the “Obama is not a citizen” arguments (e.g., a Philadelphia lawyer who claims that Obama’s grandmother said “on tape” that she witnessed Obama’s birth in Kenya would not produce the recording for Kessler).

Q: What about Obama’s picks for his cabinet?
A: Well, I really expected Jimmy Carter II, but not Bill Clinton II, which is what we’re getting. Still, it’s hilarious watching far leftists twisting in the wind on these picks (including bringing on anti-change Hillary as Secretary of State, and even keeping George W. Bush’s defense secretary on board; the HORROR!). But forget about showing Obama worshipers the inconsistencies. As Rush Limbaugh correctly notes, it’s not WHAT Obama says, it’s HOW he says it. He could recite “Mary Had a Little Lamb” in his inauguration speech, and the Obama true believers and media lapdogs would be falling all over themselves in wonder and praise.

Q: What about the great GOP comeback? Three victories in Georgia and Louisiana since the election!
A: Well, those victories benefited from not having Obama on the top of the ticket, drawing more Democrat voters to the polls. Still, with Saxby Chambliss’ win in Georgia, the Democrats won’t get to a filibuster-proof majority, although there’s enough GOP liberals to hand it to them anyway Of course, Minnesota looks to barely stay in the GOP column with a narrow Norm Coleman win, barring a certain lawsuit from sore loser Al Franken. Plus, while Joe Lieberman will caucus with the Democrats, he can be counted on to side with Republicans on issues regarding homeland security, terrorism and supporting Israel. Then there is the debacle with Governor Blag in Obama’s home state, trying to sell the soon-to-be vacated Senate seat. The battle in the state legislature to remove Blag, and the Senate’s balking at seating any Blag appointments, leaves the Donkey Party another senator short of forcing through Obama’s agenda, at least temporarily. So while the GOP victories are encouraging, it’s still a long way from regaining the country.
I’ll have some more question and answer in a little bit. Stay tuned.
