Who Loves Ya Baby?

Everyone seems to think that the most difficult issue facing President elect Obama is the economy. While I agree that this will require an effort not seen since the early 1930's, it will not be as demanding as restoring the image of America and the office of the President.

Even before the first shoe flew in Iraq, our standing in the eyes of the world has diminished greatly in the past eight years and the person in command has denigrated the office he will soon vacate to the point that POTUS, formerly known as an acronym for President of the United States, now stands for Pile On The Unstable Shiite.

While the President and everyone in the media appear to be having great fun with this story, it is sad that we have taken the act of a disconcerted Iraqi citizen and turned it into a comedy routine. No wonder the world views us with such disdain. Good luck Mr. President-elect!
