Okay, I only saw one obama thread... letme know if there is another one and I'll delete this...

I was talking with my friend at work last night(horrid Job) and he thinks there should be and Obama day... My argument to that was "What about Abraham Lincoln? He ended slavery and he doesn't have his own day... Martin Luther King Jr., I understand that and I have no problem for him having his own day... I think he deserves it.

He said that he was the first black president and I rebutted, "he's the first black president... Whoop dee doo... It was bound to happen sometime and I don't think that should be a reason, it's groundbreaking, yes, but that would be a bull**** reason. Or even Reagan. He ended the cold war and didn't get his own day... He essentially said "**** you russians, tear that wall down Mr. Gorbachev(I think that's how you spell it)"

I can understand if he does some crazy historical ****, but being the first black president, no... I wanna hear your feelings...

CORRECT

obama supporters = some smart ppl; mostly retarded hipster lemmings

He shouldn't get it while he's still in office. That would just be pure self-indulgence.

He didn't do anything yet, except being elected. Hold your horses, gentlemen; untill he has done a deed worthy of his own national day.

EDIT: And celebrating a holiday because he is black, has to be one of the most modern racist things I've ever heard.

Yes because closeing Guantanamo doesn't qualify as fixing stuff.

no

just because he's black doesn't guarantee he will be any good

only time will show that...

please god, tell me you're joking.

and i don't see why Obama deserves his own day. sure, he's the first black president to be elected, but there's others before him that deserve it more.
and he hasn't even been inaugurated (sp?) yet..let alone had a chance to really prove himself to be a good leader.

No, all he did was win, he shouldn't have his own special holiday just because he's black.

Seriously... What a bull**** idea...

Actually, something intersting. I go to school in this tiny town in Kansas and it was the first city to celebrate Veteran's Day, and now it's a National Holiday... We also have the National Teacher's Hall of Fame.

he is only half black, and while the country is "trying to get past discrimination and racism", making a holiday for the sole reason of being the first black president is kind of defeating the purpose of not paying attention to race. If he is a good president and turns the country around and stuff, then im all for a holiday for him, but he hasnt done anything yet.

I voted for him, but he might turn out to be the worst president yet. We'll see.

policies?
his "tax cuts" are a bunch of bs. i was looking stuff up about it, and rather than the tax increases for people that make 250K+ a year, he lowered that to 49K. what good will that do? absolutely none.
and he says he will "create jobs". the government itself cannot create jobs.
i don't think he's going to do us any good. if anything he'll make matters worse.

Wait till he actually does something before giving him a day. All he's done so far is win an election between a corpse and a retard.

Guys just shut the **** up about whether Obama will **** up your country or not. It's tough luck, you lost. Your 74 year old, 4 time cancer surviving "war hero" didn't win. Stop bitching about him now and let him do his job when he's the president.

And to answer your question no, because he hasn't earnt it yet.

He doesn't deserve one now, but if he ends up with a great legacy and/or some remarkable accomplishments, he should get one. Not for a while though, not until he is out of office and possibly dead.

Then again, though, Christopher Columbus was a total dip**** who got lost and thought he was in India, and then killed a bunch of people, and he gets his own day, so maybe Obama can have his even if he ends up being a total ****up.

Also, Reagan was one of the worst presidents ever. The end of the cold war was a natural result of actions taken by earlier presidents, mainly Jimmy Carter, and just happened to pan out while Reagan was in office. He also had Alzheimer's disease, so he pretty much relied on his advisers/wife to do everything since he had holes in his brain. Also the current economic crisis is a direct result of policies he advocated and helped put into practice.

All he's done so far is get elected... and name a president that has done EXACTLY what he said he would do for the country.

sadly, that is not true for many of his followers.

how can the white vote be almost even between him and McCain while at the same time over 90% of blacks voted for Obama?

Broken link, so I don't know what you were trying to show me.
All I know is we get off school for it here, and it's on calendars. There are a lot of national holidays that aren't well known, but are still meant to be celebrated. Doesn't mean it's not a holiday.

So anyone that thinks Obama isn't going to be a good president is instantly a Republican, then?
