Well hopefully he gets the public option thing right this time then.
Maybe the great one is giving us a clue.
I googled "May 24 2008" and of course that was the day that Hillary said she would continue on with her campaign, no veep slot, but it was most notable for her RFK assassination gaffe where she said she was staying in the race until the end. She had said, "My husband didn't win the nomination until, what, the middle of June in California. RFK was assassinated in June."
Now move up to May 24, 2011.
That's the day Sarah Palin said that President Obama was only a "temporary leader" of the US.
Of course every President is a temporary one, but the parallels in the implications of both ladies is interesting.
On May 24, 2008, the price of a barrel of oil was at $132 and economists were having a fit about it. Exactly 3 years to the day, the price of a barrel of crude touched $100 throughout the day, and then settled just a smidge below that. Could Obama have had oil on the brain?
On May 24, 2008, the infamous "Pig Farm" tornado hit OK. 3 years later, massive tornadoes hit again. Was Obama thinking about twisters?
On May 24, 2008, David Beckham scored an amazing 70 yard goal and exactly 3 years later the President was in his home country. Coincidence? Who knows.
But speaking of coincidence, it is rather interesting that the President, instead of going with a number having much to do with synchronicity, the idea of two exclusive events holding parallel likenesses to each other in some way, he chose a number having more to do with the infinite or the open possibility. I'm betting with the idea of assassination and temporariness put out by the two ladies that he didn't want to confirm it by writing 11 and therefore chose to write 08, as if to say, "I will go on forever", which would be appropriate since after all, he is a fucking God.
