Yesterday was the historic inauguration of Barack Hussein Obama as the 44th President of the United States of America. Liberals celebrated the Great Obama Love Fest worldwide.
In Sweden, African-American singer Cyndee Peters was hosting a show named "A Gala for Obama," featuring dozens of Swedish soul, jazz, hip-hop, gospel, folk and blues artists.Not everyone ushered in the new era with celebration and well wishing.
"Obama fever is all over the whole world," said Peters, 62, who grew up in North Carolina and New York. "I was congratulated by I don't know how many Swedes after the election. I think what he stands for needs to be celebrated."
"No one is doing their favorite songs or greatest hits," Peters added. "We're doing songs about hope."
In London, Americans could get free admission to Madame Tussaud's waxworks to see the new figure of Obama, and Queen Elizabeth II sent the new president a personal message of support. Parties were scheduled in dozens of venues, from ritzy hotels to local sports bars.
In Iran, protesters burnt posters of U.S. President-elect Barack Obama and waved flags in support of Gaza, Reuters reported.So much for Mr. President's universal appeal. In some ways this is a very important development and one I am sure the MSM, Democrats and liberals will fail to see. Haters don't care if your black, white or brown. The Iranian protesters showed just as much hate for President Obama, as they did for former President Bush. What people should take away from this is that the "New Era" replete with warm fuzzies of "hope and Change" is over already. The image that the media had built up of President Obama as some universally likable bringer together of different interests was mocked, stoned, run over by cars and burned. The man in the Oval Office today is hated by the middle east Muslims like his predecessors were. Let there be no delusions about that.
"Where are the freedom seekers?" one poster read that had the word "Gaza" on it and a picture of a weeping Palestinian, Reuters reported. Demonstrators waved Palestinian flags and chanted "Death to Obama," outside the Swiss embassy, and Reuters said it obtained pictures of Obama's image laid on the road for cars to drive over
And please somebody, anybody tell me what this "New Era" is? How is it different from the old era? When Bush took over from Clinton was that a "New Era" too? Or are only Democrats allowed to have "New Eras"?
