O’Leary, O’Reilly, O’Lear & O’Hara, there’s no one as Irish as Barrack O’Bama!

St. Patty’s Day is coming up and it sounds as if it couldn’t hurt for President O’Bama to kiss a Blarney Stone or two….or three (for good luck).  This week the “Belfast Telegraph” reported that O’Bamas big speech failed to halt what they refer to as “the slide” on Wallstreet. 

Barack Obama’s maiden speech to Congress may have had even glowering Republicans on their feet applauding, but the presidential exhortations to seize “opportunity from ordeal” failed to soothe Wall Street, with US stocks sliding 2% yesterday.  

His speech on Tuesday saw a return to the positive message that helped propel him to the White House, as he tried to calm a nation worried about a return to the suffering of the Great Depression.  Regardless, Wall Street ended another unforgiving month with a steep loss — one that left the Dow Jones industrial average at less than half its record high.

“While our economy may be weakened and our confidence shaken, though we are living through difficult and uncertain times, tonight I want every American to know this: we will rebuild, we will recover, and the United States of America will emerge stronger than before,” the President said.

“My budget does not attempt to solve every problem or address every issue,” he said. “It reflects the stark reality of what we’ve inherited — a trillion-dollar budget deficit, a financial crisis and a costly recession. Given these realities, everyone in this chamber, Democrats and Republicans, will have to sacrifice some worthy priorities for which there are no dollars. And that includes me.” 

leprechaun2It was a command performance before a Congressional chamber that felt more like a theatre in the round, with even Republicans rising to their feet to applaud…..who could blame them, as O’Bama somehow managed to “jive talk” his way into getting the keys to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue; doubling his annaul income and as the nations first black president he’s become an icon who’s [toothy grin]  is plastered on everything from gold coins, to calendars and t-shirts.  So the Republicans, who love what used to be referred to as the almighty dollar as much as the next fella, of course rose to their feet in applause for the sheer audacity of O’Bamas statment that “he” would be making sacrifices along with the rest of the nation.  (Sacrifices?  Have you seen the lunch menu at his daughters private school?   http://www.dietsinreview.com/diet_column/01/sasha-and-malia-obamas-healthy-school-lunch-menu/)  

But – Mr. O’Bamas speech was less about persuading Republican opponents to back his plans – but to speak directly to the TV audience on mainstreet while at the same time, influence Wallstreet to boldly back his ideas.  Based on the stockmarkets downward spiral – Obama was evidently unsuccessful in persuading either group about much of anything he had to say. 

Commentators however, continue to swoon over the self-proclaimed first  Black Irish President by describing his exhortations to Americans to ‘double down and try harder’ as being somewhat “Reaganesque”…. a weak attempt to praise O’Bama as not too long ago, O’Bama campaigned that indeed Ronald Reagan was the trajectory of change in America in a way the Bill Clinton and Richard Nixon were not.   

Former President Reagan (another fine Irishmen) had a sunny disposition that helped put a spring in the nation’s step but so far, O’Bama has yet to move the nation off the couch let alone put a spring in their step.
