I have to admit, President ELECT Obama amuses me with his vast array of knowledge and answers to all sorts of quandaries "we the people" face. He's one confident, authoritative guy, who isn't even the President yet- but you could have fooled me.
First, despite a three year ramp up to switch televisions from analog to digital television broadcasting, a move that requires non-cable users to obtain a special adapter, Obama is calling for further postponement. Why? The President ELECT is concerned that too many Americans who rely on analog TV sets to pick up over-the-air channels won't be ready. Further, Obama officials are also concerned that the government is not doing enough to help Americans — particularly those in rural, poor or minority communities — prepare for and navigate the transition. After all, a clear television signal is a right, lo, it's a necessity. We are so fortunate to have such a caring government.
Second, President-elect Barack Obama says he still thinks there needs to be a playoff system for determining the country's college football champion. What doesn't Obama have an answer for? One news source reported Obama, when asked what he thought about Florida's 24-14 victory Thursday night over Oklahoma in the BCS championship game said, "If I'm Utah, or if I'm USC or if I'm Texas, I might still have some quibbles....That's why we need a playoff".
This is just awesome! All the questions and quandaries we have ever had will now start to be answered by our new President. This is just great!
