No one ever lost his honor, except he who had it not.
- Publilius Syrus, Syrian-Born Roman Writer of Aphorisms (fl. B.C. 42)
Schadenfreude is an ugly thing, I avoid it as much as I can but I cannot lie here, it brings a smile to my face to hear reports that the Obamas are headed for divorce. That’s terrible, isn’t it? But it’s the honest truth, that’s just how I feel. Barack Obama had a monumental opportunity to be a great uniter and healer for America, but instead of uniting us, his strategy for winning elections was focused on dividing Americans and pitting us against each other. Barack Obama could have been the great uniter, but instead he has been the most divisive politician of our age. In everything he’s done as president, he has worked to place government as the all-powerful center of every aspect of our lives and then he scornfully accused any fellow American who dared disagree with him as the “enemy”.
So yeah, I will readily admit that seeing him have to divide his own house will bring me no small amount of pleasure.
Are the stories to be believed? Well, if a picture’s worth a thousand words, there’s no denying the stories told in the sequence of photos here:
Will the Obama’s become the first couple ever to go splitsville after being elected First Family? Your guess is as good as mine as to whether they stick it out, but I can tell you this, if Barack Obama does get divorced, don’t be surprised when he blames it on Bush.
