The Obama Coincidences

There's been a lot of debate over President Obama's feelings about the job he holds. Some theorize he really doesn't like being president while others think he's having the time of his life. I tend to lean toward the latter as it appears the head of the executive branch is taking every opportunity he can to have a good laugh in private.

There have been a number of odd little occurrences. Giving Britain back a bust of Churchill; bowing to the Saudi King; sending Netanyahu and the Dali Lama out the back way; giving Queen Elizabeth II an iPod full of his speeches and audio books; and I'm sure a few other events I'm forgetting.

Now just the other day the president decides, hey, let's celebrate Hanukkah early and instead of lighting one candle a day per tradition, let's just light them all now and then party down!

I'm not saying Obama doesn't like the Jews, but I'm not not saying it either.

But the pièce de résistance is something caught by The Blaze and brought to my attention by Twitter buddy @Robert23Hersey. Obama gave a rather anti-capitalist speech this past week in a city called Osawatomie, Kansas. Ever heard of it? I hadn't, and it's rare that the president makes a speech in a city I haven't heard of. It can happen. You research demographics and maybe say this would be a good place to get some exposure leading up to 2012. Who knows, maybe.

But the name Osawatomie does indeed ring the bells of some more literate in the history of the Weather Underground:

That's right ladies and germs, "Osawatomie" was the name of the Weather Underground's publication.

Folks, we're a long way past laughing these things off as coincidences. Obama is have a laugh, and he's laughing at us.
