Obama’s day in history

Its not everyday you see history being created.  Obama won a few months ago, but then, till took oath and stepped into the white house as the President of the United States of America, history had not yet been created.

hope-obama

For a country whose Presidents were known to keep slaves while in office till Abraham Lincoln abolished this practise, its indeed a great day.  Let’s keep our prejudices apart and hail the man who with his sheer determination has come where he has today.

Its not going to be an easy ride for Obama. And he has repeatedly indicated the same in all his speeches.  At least we can be happy that a warmonger is not in power in the US.  Hope Obama over the next 4 years of his tenure will repair the image of US that has been battered courtesy George Bush.  Hope he will crack down on rogue nations (Pakistan) who like to use terrorism as a tool to destabilise the neighbourhood.

Obama has promised to close down Guantanmo Bay, but not indicated what he will do with all the prisoners there.  There are already indications that the prisoners will be moved into some other facilities.  A 16 month target to get out of Iraq is also in place.  Hopefully he will flood Afghanistan with more troops so that Pakistan and its rogue army that is in the forefront of supporting terror in the world and the Taliban will be put in place.

Fixing the economy is a priority for the Obama administration.  Hopefully the trillions that they are planning to flood the markets will kickstart the economy and  push the world forward.

My only wish: To see an Indian Prime Minister or a President with a 6 pack ab someday.  Meanwhile we seem to have a 81 year old (LK Advani) dying waiting to replace a 78 year old (Manmohan Singh) as the Prime Minister.  Did anyone say that we have the world’s largest pool of young people?

    Amen to having an Indian prime minister as smart and intelligent and sincere as Obama someday!

    Young people? Huh? What’s that?

    I will support Sunju Baba as PM! 🙂

    You don’t talk like that about LK Advani when he is being hailed as the youth icon of India. At 81 he is anything but old.

    “See a 6 pck Indian Prime Minister”

    As long as we have 75+ PMs, I will pass 😀

    Have you heard about how some old ladies in villages cut fruits? They pick the ones which have started to rot. This way everyday one only gets to eat rotten fruit. The fresh ones are picked only when it starts to rot.

    That is our Indian Politics.

    So meanwhile the young ones can try their hand in Films, Sports on anything for fun then retire and come back to politics.

    YAYAYA, no 6 abs, just one big ab.

  12. kipet says:

    Austrian Politicians have 6…rings around their hips, but never a 6-pack ab. And if they have it, they loose it within a few months – too many too good dinner! *LOL*

    BTW: Wish Mr. Obama all the very best!

  13. Liju Philip says:

    @Alice, amen to that.

    @Smitha 😀

    @Sarita, Yeh India hai meri jaan, yahan par sab bikta hai.

    @Mithe, hope Obama doesnt turn out to be a typical Democrat who is always hostile to India. At least he has been making the right noises.

    @Amreekandesi, amen to your prayers too 🙂

    @QI, Sanju Baba will get my vote for the minister for Internal Security. He knows how to handle AK-47 very well.

    @Akhil, sorry bhai. I forgot Advani is a teenager. Think he is 18 😉

    @Solilo, thats bang on. The most rotten are in the politics serving us. You nailed it.

  14. Liju Philip says:

    @Chirag, last count Obama has changed an envoy for South Asia to one for Pak-Afghan. It was after India reacted angrily to his proposal and after his aides advised him against the folly of comparing India and Pak.

    @Manpreet, with Monica around, Bill was at his best. Under him, the US economy was pretty strong. Look what a religious nut like George Bush did to America and to the world in general. That’s why iam afraid of morons who harp on religion.

    @Kipet, looks like the Indian politicians have a strong competition from Austrian ones. Hmmm…this is gonna be a tough one 😉
