Barely making any news today anywhere is a small story about a group of people who gathered together today in Chicagos Grant Park to commemorate the one-year anniversary of Obamas election.
Feel free to click on that story if you want your heart warmed about how far we have come, and how the President has addressed just so much stuff in eleven months, and how so many people gathered together to celebrate hope and change. Siiiiigh. Just wonderful.
Oddly lacking from the story, except for a small comment Most…lauded Obama, is that the gathering was fairly frustrated, strident, and accusatory. The group came not to hold hands in joy, but to demand explanations as to why things are taking so damn long. Led by the constant media whore Jesse Jackson, the story accurately quotes but utterly misrepresents Jackson when he said Given the hand he was dealt, he should be commended…But theres unfinished business.” The story mentions it in context of how far Obama came yet there is still so much work to do. When you re-read it knowing that Jackson was blaming Obama for an endless series of stunted accomplishments, well…it sounds a little different, does it not?
Now do not think the Czar is saying this was a liberal tea party: there was plenty of the Yes we can shouting, but the fact is…this crowd was expressing frustration with healthcare, immigration, legalization of gay marriage, and the economy, the economy, and the economy. The tone was not worshipful, but frequtently plaintive. Most of his campaign promises remain utterly unfulfilled, and liberals hate that.
Small wonder you are not hearing much about the rally in Chicago today. And when you do find a story, it is awkwardly short in length.
And now you know why.
Божію Поспѣшествующею Милостію Мы, Дима Грозный Императоръ и Самодержецъ Всероссiйскiй, цѣсарь Московскiй. The Czar was born in the steppes of Russia in 1267, and was cheated out of total control of all Russia upon the death of Boris Mikhailovich, who replaced Alexander Yaroslav Nevsky in 1263. However, in 1283, our Czar was passed over due to a clerical error and the rule of all Russia went to his second cousin Daniil (Даниил Александрович), whom Czar still resents. As a half-hearted apology, the Czar was awarded control over Muscovy, inconveniently located 5,000 miles away just outside Chicago. He now spends his time seething about this and writing about other stuff that bothers him.
