A Few Troublesome Signs For Obama

Despite his huge approval ratings and a congress that will give him anything including the nations largest spending bill ever without reading it; there are a few significant and troublesome signs for President Obama that need to be watched.

The tea Party events of Tax Day April 15, 2009 are not at all insignificant.  When else have we seen perhaps 1,000 gatherings of conservatives coast to coast to draw attention to taxes and government spending?

When before have we seen (I mean, since 1861) what seems to be a serious governor making serious talk that his state doesn’t want to continue to be associated with this Union?

When before have two Catholic Universities come under fire for their association with the President of the United States?  Notre Dame is feeling heat from the Catholic faithful and bishops for their invite to Obama to get an honorary degree and now Georgetown is hearing about its covering of the name of Jesus at an Obama event this week.

Even military veterans, normally the last people on earth to riticize the government, are attacking a Department of Homeland Security report that lumped them in with terrorists (oh, we forgot, in the Obama Administration we can’t say “terrorist”).

North Korea is joyful that it has some of Obama’s attention and ditto Iran: ut this may mean that some traditional U.S. friends are not entirely happy: like Israel.

Even the Mayor of Washington DC is on the other side of at least one Obama policy as he favors school vouchers for better education while Obama’s Education Department is cutting off funding.  No matter that Obama’s kids go to private and not public schools: Obama is barring the mostly poor black kids of DC from seeking a better education in non-public schools….

Despite taking the blame for many of the world’s ills like guns and drugs in Mexico and the state of affairs in Europe as well as the global economic mess, the bowing Obama still has some trouble spots to think about.  Like Sarkozy in France…..

He Ordered The Execution of Three Somali Teens But Iran and North Korea Get A Pass? Where’s Obama’s Backbone?

Last summer in Europe: the people were at his feet.  Now?
