Obama Is In His “I Don’t Give A F**K Phase, And That’s A Good Thing.
Ronnnie Ray-Gun sells weapons to Iran to support a brutal overthrow of Nicaragua and what happens? He plays the “I can’t remember because I’m a senile old man” card, and is viewed as one of our greatest presidents. President Obama oversees one of the biggest peace accords in the last 40 years, and catches nothing but shade over it. There is something very wrong with this picture folks. It’s nice to see that while Obama is in his “I don’t give a fuck stage,” he’s actually using that attitude to achieve worth while change for the better. He’s probably the first two term president since FDR to behave in this manner.
Think about it: what other president has entered their last two years (The I don’t give a fuck phase) and actually worked hard to do good things? Clinton? Nope, he left still mired scandal. Reagan? Hell no, he left in scandal as well. Nixon? Fuck no. He spent spent the best part of his second term drunk, leaving Kissinger and Al Haig to run the country. That is of course, until he resigned, leaving amidst the mother of all White House scandals. Eisenhower? No, hell no. He left wishing he had nuked half of the planet. So, that brings us to FDR, who I think may have been in his “I don’t give a fuck phase,” from the first day he was sworn in, until the day he died in office. Being president during a depression and world war can do that to a person.
This appears to be the Barack Obama that we had hoped for when he was first elected in 2008. A president who actually goes against the grain, and works to make not only this country better, but the world as well. Sure he has his fair share of warts and monumental fuck ups, like the Wall Street bail out, or the drone wars abroad and domestic, but I like what he’s doing. Keep it up!
