After the initial "Holy shitballs!" that happened in all of our brains, especially before a cup of coffee, it is settling in that having a guy like Barack Hussein Obama as the leader of the Free World is kind of a big deal, not just to us red-blooded, tea-baggin' Americans.
And you know what? Despite all of the dismal figures and embarrassing news stories coming out almost hourly, damnit are we proud of the guy. For wisdom on all of this, we're looking to former Polish President and Nobel laureate Lech Walesa:
"This is probably an encouragement for him to act. Let's see if he perseveres. Let's give him time to act."
Amen, Lech. Amen.
