Taking a stand for your beliefs does not make it a racial issue.  Race has nothing at all to do with this decision..lack of performance by the potential honoree does. 

I applaud the courage and decision of the Georgia Legislature to stand up for principle rather than kissing butt for political correctness.  “If you don’t stand up for something, you’ll fall for anything” is a policy more of us will have to adopt and put into practice in the coming years if our country has any chance to get back on the path of leadership, respect and prosperity.

So far, Mr. Obama has not demonstrated either an unimpeachable reputation for integrity, nor shown a propensity for vision or passion for anything other than his own agenda, come hell or high water.  He has not earned the hollow honor that was being sought to be passed blindly through for appearance sake. 

The first 2 full months of his administration (and the prior 2 months where he was in the “office of the President-Elect *rolling my eyes) have been an unmitigated mess of confusion and dysfunction.  A chaotic mix of finger pointing, miscues and excuses.  There has been a litany of back door legislation that they hoped would fly under the radar rather than attracting media or public attention.  Back door politics and not a sign of hope or change.  Heck, he even told us today not to expect too much from our government.  It’s not like they are supposed to lead the country or anything.




Ga. House Republicans Block Obama Honor

Posted: 4:21 pm EDT March 19, 2009

The Georgia House voted against approving a resolution that would have honored President Barack Obama and praised him for being a politician with an “unimpeachable reputation for integrity, vision and passion.” 

The 70-68 vote Thursday infuriated members of the Georgia Legislative Black Caucus, who designed the proposal to make him an honorary member of the group. State Rep. Keith Heard, D-Athens, said “it makes you wonder what exactly is going on in Georgia.” 

The measure was blocked by a group of House Republicans, including state Rep. Austin Scott of Tifton. Scott objected to wording in the resolution that he said suggested the entire House approved of the President’s actions.
