American companies? Who needs ’em ...
Posted by: McQ on Wednesday, September 24, 2008

Irony is sometimes too sweet.

Barack Obama constantly rails against companies who send jobs overseas. But when it comes to making commemorative coins for his "coronation", only a foreign company will do:
A company in Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter is making commemorative coins for American presidential hopeful Barack Obama.

[...]

The coins already sold to the Democrats will be presented to the senators, congressmen, governors and other politicians they are being given to within the next two weeks.

[...]

When they got in touch with the Democrats the party jumped at the chance. And the coins have proved such a hit that locally produced versions have already been launched to compete with the UK originals.

The coins show Senator Obama’s face, along with a picture of the White House and the legend “President of the United States of America”.


Politics is about perception. Two things most voters don't like is hubris and talking the talk, but not walking the walk. Sometimes the most seemingly insignificant thing can hurt a candidate and a campaign. I have no idea if this is one of them, but it ought to be.

Love the Il Duce-like jut-jaw. Very appropriate, too:

"In God We Trust The President" More Jesus Talk?

Funny thing is he kind of did the same thing to Hillary, claiming the nomination before it was completely apparent he had it. Apparently he thinks it might work again, but while the left doesn’t seem to have much issue with hubris, i think the public at large is as you say.

Silly blogger, the mainstream media is still the media of the masses. And the MSM is blatantly siding with Obama. Most voters will never hear of this.

His own seal....European diplomatic tour.....greek temple set.....his own latin motto.....now this.

WOW.

Why doesn’t he just start moving his furniture into the White House while he’s at it?

This guy and his acolytes are creepy. This cult of personality is dangerous. He’s already sent his thugs against that radio station via his "action wire"

I guess the only thing missing is his crown. When does THAT debut.

I am starting to think the National Cathedral is more what they have in mind.

Why am I reminded of the picture of "Give ’em Hell" Harry Truman holding up the headline "Dewey Defeats Truman"? God really does have a sense of humor...
