What Does an AntiWar President Do? O Death, Where is Your Sting?

Barack Obama (Hope, Shepard Fairey Campaign) Art Poster Print - 16x20 Poster Print, 24x36
The two Koreas are apparently at war, or at least, things seem to be leading that way. Entering the White House, Barack Obama vowed to extract us from war. We are not in this one yet, but he is already talking with China regarding their relationship with North Korea.

While it is a known fact that North Korea's leader is a spineless loudmouth. So is his dad:

"The shelling also comes as North Korea is undergoing a delicate transition of power from leader Kim Jong Il to his young son Kim Jong Un. The son, who is in late 20s, was made a four-star general and nominated to high-ranking Workers' Party posts in the first steps toward eventually succeeding his father."

What a way to start. He's barely out of his diapers, but commands a murderous military inherited from his dishonorable pop.

What will Obama do? It is tricky. Certainly, for now, he is doing what both Democrats and Republicans approve, pursuading. He, nor does any American, does not want the USA to enter another war. Soldiers still fight in Iraq, and that area. However, unlike Iraq, North Korea's nut job president's son is in charge. Iraq's war is led by a scattered crew. Dangerous, yet, but they do not represent a country. Iran has a nut job in charge too.

If everyone puts their guns away, we can move on. If not, will Obama keep his campaign promise, or will he back down in the process of protecting American interests?

A problem for him politically, as whichever way he chooses, he loses. This being true, it does free him at the same time to do whatever is the right thing.

If Were President Obama, This Month I Would --

The New Poster of the Presidents of the United States (Pres. Obama included)
If I were President Obama, now that the Republicans will balance out the power --
  1. I would root out all the corruption I can, starting with Democrats. If he doesn't Republicans will. And it will be messy.
  2. I would avoid the temptaation of ramming bills through Congress to make them laws. If I said I believe in working across the aisle, I would actually work across the aisle. You are already fighting a George Bush-like image in this and your supporters will continue to lose respect if you do not bring real change to how the White House is done.
  3. I would add a Republican to the Cabinet. Maybe an independent also, one who is truly nonpartisan. You will win more support from moderates.
  4. Law low until the State of the Union speech. Work hard behind the scenes. You are fantastic at giving big speeches, but less impressive with the little ones. At the end of the day, remember you are not as gifted as Ronald Reagan when it comes to speaking on the spot. You aren't as bad as Bush was, but save your thunder. You can restore your whammy-image you enjoyed in 2008.
  5. I would stop my supporters from trashing Sarah Palin as a quitter, given his own role quitting the State of Illinois to run for president, and with, now Rahm Emanuel quitting his post mid-term to run for Chicago's mayor. It might be different, but only the most academic politics can explain the distinction.
  6. Really, really work to be less partisan.

Decision Points by George Bush - Recommended Reading for President Barack Obama

Decision PointsOf all the books President Barack Obama would do well to read, Decision Points by President George Bush is one of them. As the current president's approval ratings continue to plummet, he would do well to learn from his predecessor. How did Bush go from massively popular to the whipping boy of the media? Were there poor decisions that could have easily been changed, or was it a matter of policy and stand?

From Amazon.comProduct Description
President George W. Bush describes the critical decisions of his presidency and personal life.

Decision Points is the extraordinary memoir of America’s 43rd president. Shattering the conventions of political autobiography, George W. Bush offers a strikingly candid journey through the defining decisions of his life.

In gripping, never-before-heard detail, President Bush brings readers inside the Texas Governor’s Mansion on the night of the hotly contested 2000 election; aboard Air Force One on 9/11, in the hours after America’s most devastating attack since Pearl Harbor; at the head of the table in the Situation Room in the moments before launching the war in Iraq; and behind the Oval Office desk for his historic and controversial decisions on the financial crisis, Hurricane Katrina, Afghanistan, Iran, and other issues that have shaped the first decade of the 21st century.

President Bush writes honestly and directly about his flaws and mistakes, as well as his accomplishments reforming education, treating HIV/AIDS in Africa, and safeguarding the country amid chilling warnings of additional terrorist attacks. He also offers intimate new details on his decision to quit drinking, discovery of faith, and relationship with his family.

A groundbreaking new brand of memoir, Decision Points will captivate supporters, surprise critics, and change perspectives on one of the most consequential eras in American history – and the man at the center of events.
