Ever since President Barack Obama first took office (and even prior to his election), many in the field have speculated as to whether Obama might be “the one”.
In saying this, I’m not referring to anything similar to “Neo” from the popular Matrix films. Instead, I am making a reference to the long-sought President who could assemble an administration which may bring about ultimate disclosure of government files involving UFOs. With his first address to a joint Congress taking place as I write this, I can tell you one thing: don’t expect to hear President Obama discussing UFOs any time soon.
Still, perhaps there are other things I would rather he discuss anyway.
Before I go any further with the notion of Obama’s association with Ufology and possible disclosure, I first would like to give a brief overview of the matters at hand which have occupied his interests instead; since taking office, it is safe to say that our new President has had his hands full. Obama has ordered two more U.S. combat brigades into Afghanistan, deploying 17,000 troops to join the 36,000 that comprise US forces already in the theater. Here at home, he has also worked to issue a $787 bilion dollar spending package which includes some of the following:
* Tax provisions for payroll tax cuts, credits for first time buyers
* Relief funds to individual states
* Health, labor, and education programs
* Unemployment and low-wage assistance
* Housing and transportation systems
In addition, Obama has made fiscally-minded goals that include bringing the national deficit down to 3% ($546 billion) by 2014, as well establishing a lean federal budget aimed at helping restore consumer confidence.
But of course, speechwriters for tonight’s first address to a joint session of Congress were already working on gearing its themes toward health care and energy weeks ago. Topics on the table this evening were no doubt influenced earlier today by Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke’s announcement regarding the lifespan of the current recession, which he says (hopes) won’t extend much further than the beginning of next year.
