    Just a few moments ago, in the "68%" thread here in the Politics sub-forum, starinvestor made a shocking disclosure. In the course of objecting to Obama's high approval rating as being premature, starinvestor stated:


    Give it a hundred days, indeed, baby! We certainly wouldn't expect starinvestor to have to make any innaccurate characterizations [snort], so it's crystal clear that this means a vow of silence for the next 90-odd days.

    I for one am truly grateful for this act of selfless beneficience.

    Yippee!!!!! :cool:

    I will take the middle ground here...I'm saying let's give the new president a chance to show us what he can do. Let's give star a chance to see what he can do.I'll believe both when I see it!

    Well, in reality, it is still a little too soon to make an accurate judgment of what is to come. He's been in office for 5 days, how could anyone possibly fuck up or perform a miracle in 5 days? 100 days is the common point at which we usually get a general feel for an administration. As of now I approve of most of what he's done, but then again we're only on day 5...

    I don't think Obama is having any honeymoon, he is facing more problems than most any other new president in my lifetime. I think Bush played golf his first year until that pesky little 9/11 issue.

    after that pesky 9/11 thing, Bush watched movies at night in the white house theater to relax. I know somebody who's a friend of a guy who used to hang with one of the twins. It freaked him out that W was down there watching movies with them, leaving the whole business of dealing with the aftermath to his "team." This guy eventually got so unnerved by how bizarre it was that he stopped going over for movies altogether. Hard to imagine Obama sitting around watching movies while somebody else figures out how to deal with a crisis.

    I don't take your quote to mean a vow of silence on Star Investors part.

    You probably can all stop celebrating now.:frown1:

    :rolleyes:

    Of course not...it isn't in the nature of a troll to let a little thing like a blatant display of hypocrisy prevent him from opening his mouth. Therein lies the humorous thrust of the OP.

    Oh the Bush Junta made sure there would be no honeymoon. He set the world on fire then gave Obama the keys and headed for Dallas.

    What's that? I won't be able to hear crickets chirp and birds warble sweetly as Walden Pond goes without starinvestor during Obama's first 100 days? The frogs, beavers, and woodland creatures will, like me, be very very sad if the silence is broken. But wait! If you remain very quiet you can still hear the waning call of the loons. At least I think they are loons. Calloo callay!

    Wishful thinking, ST. Making an assessment of Obama in terms of complete analysis is impossible for at least a few months. However, pointing out good decisions, or the more likely - monumentally poor decisions - is perfectly acceptable along the way.
