Frightful first week

Written by Rosa Colucci on .

After all the crying, praising, fawning and practically falling all over themselves for President Barack Obama, let's take a look at what the media's hero did in just his first week in office.

With the country trillions of dollars in debt, and ready to go a near trillion further into debt when Congress passes a stimulus package, President Obama freezes the salaries of about 120 employees of his administration making more than $100,000 a year -- an act akin to throwing a glass of water on a blazing inferno -- telling them this is what's expected of them, one day after an inauguration that reportedly cost $160 million or more! (I guess it's not expected of him to save money.)

Then with another stroke of his pen he's closing the detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, being more concerned about the rights of enemy combatants trying to kill us than for the safety of the American people he vowed to protect!

Finally, and most disgustingly, with total disregard for the rights of the defenseless unborn child, he reverses a previous order signed by President Bush and allows our hard-earned tax dollars to be sent to foreign countries so they can kill poor helpless babies!

Amazing! Frightening! And extremely tragic!
