He is like the new winner of the Westminster Dog Show. The oldest dog ever (10 yrs) was chosen by the judges, because the dog almost died 5 years ago and was just now able to be shown again. He won the sympathy vote.

The major difference for me, is that I really like the dog, and I cant stand Obama.

Re the Dog Show. By marginalizing the criteria by which a champion of all breeds is chosen, in this case making a dog a champ because of the sympathy felt for him, renders those who won before him something less then champions as they were.

The same sort of thing happened when they gave the Nobel Peace prise to Passer Arafat. That award has lost every single bit of it’s prestige for anyone who has a modicum of common sense.

I think the Bamster is winning the most disliked contest between Bill Clinton and himself. You will not see Obama shaking hands on a rope line as Clinton did. I think the Bamster is to much of a coward.
