One for the history books

Michael Moore, wrong again:

“When the history is written of this era, this is how you’ll be remembered: ‘He was the first black president.’ Okay, not a bad accomplishment, but that’s it. That’s it, Mr. Obama. A hundred years from now, ‘he was the first black American that got elected president.’ And that’s it. Eight years of your life and that’s what people are got to remember. Boy, I got a feeling, know you, that you’d probably wish you were remembered for a few other things, a few other things you could’ve done.”

Since it will take, oh, about 100 years to undo the damage he's done, assuming it can be undone, I suspect they'll be talking about him at least that long. Og course, Moore is upset that Obama hasn't done even more of the things I think would damage the country. But that's just me. Who knows who will be writing the history books then? Most of the ones being written these days skip right over the founding of the country -- you know, on the greatest political idea in the history of the world -- and concentrate on all our sins. We screwed over the Indians, you know!
