Posted on 05/08/2009 4:53:42 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest
It really is all about Obama, isnt it? The presidents Interior Secretary went on Today this morning and proclaimed that the Statue Of Liberty is is about Pres. Obamas agenda.
Ken Salazar was there to announce that, after having been closed subsequent to 9-11, the crown of the statue would be re-opened on July 4th. The entire Today crew is broadcasting from the statue this morning.
Heres the transcript of Salazars vainglorious claim, made in an exchange with Matt Lauer:

All the world’s about Obama ping to Today show list.
I never thought I’d say this, but I think I’ve reached my saturation point with Obama and the MSM. I read something like this and I just think “Why get mad? The MSM will just praise him for it, and the American people will just watch The View.”
There couldn’t be a bigger contradiction in terms.
True that the MSM will praise Obama no matter how he screws up, but I disagree that "the American people will just watch The View". Given Fox's meteoric rise to the top of the news ratings, I think that people are tuning out the biased MSM. The ones who watch "The View" are the same ones who watch "Oprah", and are pure Obama-ites anyway.
When it was originally gifted to us it came with a plaque (since removed by evil white guys) that said:
“Some day a Magic Negro will rise up and make America Whole.”
And so it came to pass. We have our Magic Negro and he is putting America in a Whole Lot of Sh*t.
picture says it all... ping
OK, now tell me that he had nothing to do with the decision to try to get a photo op of Air Force One with the Statue of Liberty in the background.
Excellent point! I’m going to mention it in an update in the original article.
BTW, are you a parrot lover? I have a lovebird, a Congo grey and a red-fronted macaw.
How ironic since 0bama wants nothing more but to shackle his opposition. Fraud still putting up a front.
Ha! I think we should gift it back to France as they at least have Sarkozy and are on the path to freedom as we are heading toward tyranny!
Ahhhhh....Now the photo op makes sense. So to say the Prez didn’t know is ridiculous....which it is anyways.
Assuming the statue was shut so that some loon would not carry a bomb up there and blow the statue’s head off.
The reopening is in some sense “about Obama” (Bush obviously didn’t consider it worth the risk) but the whole bleeding statue? What a puff head. What a maroon.
I had a red vent cockatoo for a while several years ago, but it’s actually a reference being from So Cal and a parrothead.
This Statue of Liberty thing for the 4th of July kinda’ bothers me. Is it to a lot of TV publicity on the 4th to deminish coverage of Tea Parties? Or, is it going to be a lead-in to an immigration amnesty announcement shortly thereafter?
I think I remember an old article about the statue where its’ message was related to freeing blacks. So, here we go again...
Your excellent comment has been mentioned in the update at Finkel’s page:
“Update: Over at Free Republic, where this item was cross-posted, reader socal_parrot made a perspicacious observation: OK, now tell me that he had nothing to do with the decision to try to get a photo op of Air Force One with the Statue of Liberty in the background.
For you, GLGB...
LOL: good one—thanks!
My conscience is clear. I voted against him!!
Fox, O’Reilly and Hannity in particular, gives The View waaaaaaaay too much time. Better they should ignore them.
