A Hussein in the White House

They tried everything to ensure that he would lose. There was, of course, the damning fact that his father had been a Muslim. They reminded people again and again that his middle name (Hussein) was the same as that of Saddam Hussein, whom they had earlier hanged. And then, of course, he was black. They picked up Joe the Plumber (a Jew) who said that Obama’s win would mean the death of Israel. Nothing worked. Barack (from “Mubarak”, meaning blessed) Hussein Obama, will be the president of the world’s sole superpower for the next four years, assuming of course that no one bumps him off (as feared by Gore Vidal, the well-known American writer).

But if Muslims (particularly Pakistanis) think that U.S. policies will change in their favour, they are in for a nasty surprise. Bush of course was favoured by Al-Qaeda, because they knew he was stupid. But Obama is not suddenly going to stop bombing FATA in Pakistan, nor will he start giving Muslim countries billions of dollars (since the U.S. economy is in deep recession, thanks to Bush’s policies). But at least there is poetic justice here. Bush got one Hussein killed, only to find himself replaced by another. This is, indeed, poetic justice!

  1. att aedens : I won’t say anything about Bush’s tax cuts or other domestic economic blunders, but you have to admit that his foreign poicy (invasion of Iraq, for instance) is responsible for the current economic crisis. The trillion dollars spent on flattening Iraq could have been spent on research to develop solar/alternative energies. But then, Bush always thought that there is no such thing as global warming.

  2. since the U.S. economy is in deep recession, thanks to Bush’s policies

    Name one please. Posit a group think with your peers for clarification to economic trend. There are longer term issues unfolding. Please consider a first step at http://mises.org/ since just because many did not see it coming “does not mean many did not see it” to preserve capital. This is forwarded for edification to you as a person who understand’s clearly the issues are real to us all. Consider a cat black or white is meaningless if it catches a mouse.

  3. I liked the sound of poetic justice.

    But I seriously doubt he’d (Bush) care about a name, as long as the policies are the same under the black so-called muslim skin.

  4. Agreed…Obama is just another one of the flock no matter with what his name begins or ends. It will be so naive and utterly ignorant to believe that he would be working for global cohesion. The forces that brought him to power dont want that and he is just another puppet.
