Obama, UFOs, and the First 100 Days

     Since Franklin D. Roosevelt pioneered the concept of “the first 100 days” in 1933 at the height of the depression it is generally believed that at the beginning of every new White House administration there is a 100 day window where the President is believed to have support from his recent electoral victory to put through his agenda in congress. Usually the President moves on difficult divisive issues or issues that are unpopular. Once the 100 days passes people tire, the victory is forgotten, and support tends to slip.

So what are the chances that Obama will use the first 100 days of his second term to move on the UFO issue?

This author was very skeptical that any such thing would happen in the first 100 days of Obama’s first term. The prediction turned out to be accurate.

The second term, however, looks different. Obama’s recent actions seem to be giving off different signals that something might be in the works. Perhaps he will spend some of his political capital to take on the Rodney Dangerfield of all political and socials movements.

Prior to his first term Obama rarely talked about anything not grounded in a socialist leaning of “taking care of the little guy.” When it came to less grounded issues such as the space program Bill and Hillary Clinton were giving speeches during the 2008 campaign that clearly predicted that an Obama election would be bad news for NASA and anyone else with off world interests. These predictions turned out to be fairly accurate as NASA would discover.

When asked the question about “life in outer space” during an October 2007 Democratic debate Obama clearly pointed out that although there may be being coming to Earth he was much more concerned with people who were already here on Earth that needed his help.

When asked during the 2008 election whether or not he would tell the public if he found out once elected that there were aliens visiting Earth, Obama skirted the question by turning the question into a punch line for a joke. ‘It would depend,” Obama told the reporter, “on whether the aliens were Democrats or Republicans.”

As the first term went along, and especially during the 4th year of the term Obama started to say things and things started to happen around Obama that indicated the UFO issue may have been discussed and that Obama was leaning towards UFO openness. Obama had started to talk UFOs when he didn’t have to, and was starting to sound like Bill Clinton who was fascinated with UFOs and who made more than a couple references to aliens, UFOs, and Martians in his public speeches. These incidents and statements tended to indicate one of two things . . ..
