Unfortunately I had to test a website in IE this morning and when I loaded it I saw the following on the MSN home page…
Could it be a mistake? I then decided to follow the link to the actual story, here: The Root 100 2011: Influencers and Iconoclasts. Again I look and see that the only constant between the two images is the lovely Beyonce, as evidenced by this screen shot:
In fact, there is no mention whatsoever on the front page of the article of the noble, the anointed, the one and only – President Barack Hussein Obama. In fact, he isn’t even on the list! There are plenty of entries of people who have worked with Obama, but not the Man Himself. Now maybe I’m missing something here, but theroot.com claims “The Root is the leading online source of news and commentary from an African-American perspective. Founded in 2008 under the leadership of Prof. Henry Louis Gates Jr. of Harvard University.” Not even an organization founded by the guy that Obama stood up and jammed a size-11 in his mouth for is stumping for the One.
In my humble opinion, I’m not surprised he’s not on the list. While he may have elevated the African American community by achieving the highest office in the land, it’s no secret that he has completely squandered the opportunity and continues to embarrass his party by repeatedly making decisions that are analogous to George W Bush’s public speaking ability. Who’d have thought that Joe Biden would be the brains of the operation?
The Left is in trouble, Obama is in trouble, and if they want to stand a chance in 2012 – Barack should bow out gracefully and hopefully allow someone into office that can actually move this country forward instead of continuing the failed policies of George W Bush and attempting to act on the failed ideology of Socialism.
