6 Reasons Why Obama's is an Historic Presidency

Everybody is talking about how "historic" the Obama move to the White House is for the country. Maybe so. I certainly was able to think of several historic "firsts":

#6. The most corrupt individual to ever be elected. Obama essentially bought the presidency with illegal foreign campaign contriubtions. He rose to power through the corrupt Chicago political machine. He has nominated at least 2 individuals into his cabinet who have run afoul of the law. The list of scandal is already very long with Obama and will, no doubt, get much longer.

#5. The least experienced person to ever be elected. Obama has only a few months of experience in federal office and has never held any executive office or military position. Every other previous president in American History had significant experience in one of these three areas. Not Obama.

#4. The most promoted candidate by the mass media in modern history. Has the media EVER been so overtly in the tank for any other candidate in history? Not even close.

#3. The most left-leaning candidate to ever win the presidency. Some say he is a Marxist, other's identify him as just a run-of-the-mill Socialist. Either way, its a first.

#2. The first candidate to gain the white house with personal terrorist connections. One could argue that it is possible that Bill Clinton could not have qualified for a security clearance to get access to the White House. Nevertheless, there is no doubt whatsoever that, with Obama's personal ties to Weather Underground co-founder Bill Ayers, he would never have been able to get even the lowest level government security clearance had he not otherwise been elected to the presidency.

#1. The first person ever elected to the White House without being a natural born citizen. Technically, Obama CAN'T be president because he was not born in the United States of two American citizens as is required by the Constitution. In this regard, Obama is clearly a usurper to the power of the presidency and can't actually legally sign legislation, appoint judges, or approve treaties without running afoul of this most basic of eligibility standards to be president.

You may be asking why I didn't include that Obama is black? To me, this is a non-starter. So the guy has a little more melanin in his skin than previous presidents. Big deal. Everyone's melanin level varies from person to person. I don't consider superficial things like skin tone to be all that historic.
