I find it particularly a particularly good source for finding pertinent links. After reading a short sentence of anywhere from as few as three, to as many as twenty or so words, I can tell if the link that usually follows it, is something which I want to examine further. And more often than not, I find the link that I thought I would be interested in, to in fact be very interesting.
On this particular night, after reviewing the Twitters that I follow, I came across this one from President Obama. It is not his personal Twitter. I doubt he has one. I mean, look what it did for liberal Democrat Anthony Weiner (“it can be effective if used properly”). This particular Obama Twitter feed is that of his reelection campaign, and it showed up as follows:
BarackObama Barack Obama
I checked out the link and was brought to a page that read;
We’ll cover your airfare and the meal—all you have to bring is your story and your ideas.
And this time, if you win, you can invite a guest.”
The concept started to make me think about who I would invite to go with me for a dinner with President and Mrs. Obama.
Now this would never happen of course. First of all, as much as I respect the office of President and am fascinated by it, I don’t think I could ever sit across from this President and eat a meal. I think I would pull a George H. W. Bush and involuntarily choke up a few unintended, disrespectful, chunks. That’s not something I would actually want to do to any President, even this one. But thought about it in the hypothetical.
The list I came up with though, did not contain the names of any of my friends. And before you write any smart remarks,…..Yes I do have some friends. But like me, the best ones are conservative and I would not subject them to the same kind of embarrassing situation I would want try to avoid. So instead, I came up with a list of perspective guests whom for a number of different reasons, I would invite to dine with myself and the Obama’s.
1. –Jeremiah Wright
That would be a reunion I wouldn’t want to miss. Can you imagine just how much Barry and Michele would be squirming? And what kind of conversation would such a dinner consist of?:
- Rev. Wright: So Barack, I haven’t seen you at Sunday services in a while?
- President Obama: Yea, well, you know Rev., I’ve been kind of busy and they have a few cozy little congregations closer by around here. Make’s it more convenient, ya know.
- Me: Hey I’ve got a great idea! Let’s call your scheduler and see if we can arrange for you to attend Sunday services with Rev. Wright sometime between now and the Sunday before the election?
2. – Bill Ayers
That would be dynamite!
- Me: So tell me, what exactly did you two teach back in Chicago once the bombs stopped exploding?
3. – John Holdren
Holdren is President Obama’s Director of Science and Technology and he wrote a book which addressed potential problems with overpopulation. Some suggested solutions in the book included limiting the size of families, adding sterilizer to the drinking water supply, and of course, mandatory abortion. Holdren has also called for a “Planetary Regime” to control the global economy and a global tax on greenhouse gas emissions.
With a dinner guest like that, guess what topics I would stay on and how it would start?
Me: Mr. President; why don’t you and the First Lady go ahead and drink the water first. And don’t worry about me. Just leave me some of that filet mignon your having, I’ll eat whatever you don’t finish.
4. – Carol Browner
Browner is the Director of the White House Office of Energy and Climate Change Policy and she has been one of 14 leaders of Socialist International’s Commission for a Sustainable World Society, a group that has called for affluent nations to shrink their economies in order to help prevent climate change.
Me: “So Mr. President, Carol tells me that she wants to continue to see the economy shrink. Is that why you have been spending so much and refusing to free the free market?
5. – Congresswoman Maxine “The Tea Party Can Go to Hell” Waters
Me: So Mr. President, is there anything that the two of you don’t agree on?
6. – Mark Levin
Mark Levin is a constitutional scholar, author, former deputy in the Reagan Justice Department, and my favorite conservative radio talk show host. He is refreshingly honest, does not hide his feelings, and makes the case against President Obama and liberals, succinctly and relentlessly. Mark Levin is the type of guy who will say to your face what others will only say behind your back and I would just love to see President Obama try to eat his dinner while Mark Levin chews him out, respectfully of course.
7. – Kent and Josephine Terry
The parents of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry who died almost one year ago as a result of the Obama Administration’s bungled Fast & Furious operation, have never received an explanation for the American government’s hand in the killing of their son. Nor have they received an apology from the leaders of our government who made it possible for Mexican drug dealers to kill their son. I would like to see President Obama look Mr. and Mrs. Terry in the eye and then try to eat his dinner. I would like to see him explain to them why his Administration has been unwilling to be forthcoming with all the information surrounding their sons death insofar as the government operation that provided their son’s killers with the weapons they used to kill him with. If there were ever any two people who deserved an audience with the President and his wife, it’s Kent and Josephine Terry. In fact, President Obama owes it to them.
