Whoo-hoo. Look at that Obama go. I gotta’ admit I had my doubts but the dude did it. I’m on my third shot of some blue drink here and the victory parade is about to begin…When are you comin’ over? What, you haven’t heard? Well, congratulations are in order. The War on Terror is over, according to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Hee-hee. No no no I can have another I’m not driving. I’m cool.
You see, I guess without our noticing we’ve wiped out the thousands of violent Muslim fanatics or converted them or something because we’re no longer at war or I guess under any threat whatsoever. Whew. And see that silly George W. Bush thought this would be a war that would last decades. Silly old Bush. Looks like Obama really took it to those terrorists because we’re done fighting the War on Terror just 60days into Obama’s Presidency.
Look. Look. Here’s the story. Read it for yourself fromNPR :
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton says the Obama administration has indeed abandoned the term “global war on terror.”
Clinton says that while she hasn’t seen any specific orders, the new administration in Washington simply isn’t using the phrase.
The term was a rallying cry for President Bush after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. But the use of the term “global war on terror” is widely disliked overseas.
Oh. Wait a second. Wait. Wait. Holy cow. I think we misunderstood this a little. So we’re just not calling it “The War on Terror” anymore essentially because the people who are trying to kill us don’t like it. Uh-oh. Guys, put away the shots. Cancel the parade. Deflate the floats? Who brought the chimp? Oh, look at this carpet, get it out of here. Uh-oh. This is going to be a really bad hangover…and a very long four years.

I’ll say they found “common ground”!
Thanks for the invite to the party, Matthew, but I could do without the hangover. Life in the US is sobering enough these days.

Just when I thought we started this country to get away from what other countries thought of us. Man… it’s like you run your family based off what your neighbors think you should do.

Don’t know how credible this is, but could BO’s team be speaking too soon?
