This Monday was President Obama's 52nd birthday ( I believe) and it's only fitting that we recognize the occasion here at the Watcher's Council.
It's become quite obvious over the last 5 years that our president has a leadership style unique in our history, one that involves a high level of personal responsibility:
His hard work on our behalf is legendary:
So is his cool. I mean, who else would have the elan to announce a major al-Qaeda threat this weekend, then take off to go golfing and leave it to his team to handle, knowing the country was in good hands!
His entire administration has been characterized by a transparency unique in American history, just like he promised us:
Yes, this is one special president, and the American people are not worthy of his leadership. Happy birthday, sir!
Welcome to the Watcher's Council, a blogging group consisting of some of the most incisive blogs in the 'sphere, and the longest running group of its kind in existence. Every week, the members nominate two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council.Then we vote on the best two posts, with the results appearing on Friday.
This week, Ask Marion, Gates of Vienna and Wolf Howling took advantage of my generous offer of link whorage and earned honorable mention status with some excellent articles.
You can, too! Want to see your work appear on the Watcher’s Council homepage in our weekly contest listing? Didn’t get nominated by a Council member? No worries.
Simply head over to Joshuapundit and post the title a link to the piece you want considered along with an e-mail address ( which won't be published) in the comments section no later than Monday 6PM PST in order to be considered for our honorable mention category. Then return the favor by creating a post on your site linking to the Watcher’s Council contest for the week when it comes out Wednesday morning
It's a great way of exposing your best work to Watcher’s Council readers and Council members. while grabbing the increased traffic and notoriety. And how good is that, eh?
