The old rancher said, 'Well, ya know, Obama is a 'post turtle'.
Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him what a 'post turtle' was.
The old rancher said, 'When you're driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a 'post turtle'.'
The old rancher saw a puzzled look on the doctor's face, so he continued to explain. 'You know he didn't get up there by himself, he doesn't belong up there, he doesn't know what to do while he is up there, and you just wonder what kind of a dumb ass put him up there to begin with.'
Just who did put Barrack Hussein Obama in the position he's found himself?
I'm not a PC type of guy so I'll give you my opinion whether you'll agree or be offended.
I'm thinking it was the George Soros and MoveOn.org crowd. Or maybe it was some of his racist socialist friends like Reverend Wright and his former church buddies. It could be any of the "Blame America First" acolytes.
All I know is that for all the apprehension I felt with the fact that Hillary Clinton could have been elected, I feel downright fear at the possibility of a President Obama. At least with Clinton I had the feeling that she had a very firm idea of what she was getting into.
With Obama, I don't think he's got a clue.
That's what scares me the most.
The 21st Century sure has been kind to the Boston area.

A nice-sounding bill called the "Global Poverty Act," sponsored by Democratic presidential candidate and Senator Barack Obama, is up for a Senate vote on Thursday and could result in the imposition of a global tax on the United States. The bill, which has the support of many liberal religious groups, makes levels of U.S. foreign aid spending subservient to the dictates of the United Nations.
Senator Joe Biden, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, has not endorsed either Senator Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton in the presidential race. But on Thursday, February 14, he is trying to rush Obama's "Global Poverty Act" (S.2433) through his committee. The legislation would commit the U.S. to spending 0.7 percent of gross national product on foreign aid, which amounts to a phenomenal 13-year total of $845 billion over and above what the U.S. already spends.
It appears the Senate version is being pushed not only by Biden and Obama, a member of the committee, but Richard Lugar, the ranking Republican member.
I have to ask, when has the burden on ending global poverty been America's responsibility?
How can Obama be serious about putting a greater tax burden on the American people for foreign aid when by his own accounts there is so much to be done about poverty here in the United States?
As Americans we are well known for our generosity. We are consistently the first ones to arrive when there are world disasters. We give with our money, sweat and blood. We give to charity even when things are looking down. We give even though our own situation my not be the best. We do it because it's the right thing to do, to help people less fortunate is not required, it is the morally decent thing to do. We don't look for pats on the back and "atta boys", it just gets done because it's right.
Now when Barrack Obama says he wants to put an extra tax burden on American citizens to the tune of $8,500 per household, we have to say "Whoa, hold your horses". There's so much to be done here in our country first.
To take from our citizens at a time when the doomsayers are shouting "recession and depression" cannot happen.
Especially if the United Nations in the going to be the banker, the organization that doles out these funds. We all saw how well the U.N.'s Oil for Food program worked. The top dawgs in the U.N. got rich off of that
