The Obama presidential campaign, in the next few days, will be deeply rooted in the middle of bum-frinkin’ No Where’sVille with the opening of a Guam campaign office, just in time for the scheduled May 3 caucus.
The office will be run by Joshua Tenorio, who was appointed Obama’s Guam campaign director.
WOW, just in time too. How impressive. It would have been even more impressive if he would have taken an interest weeks, or even months ago. As it is it smacks of pure unadulterated opportunism.
Yesterday, Obama’s campaign headquarters in Chicago e-mailed the Pacific Daily News a letter written by Obama that includes some of his visions for a better Guam.
“We must recharge the Guam economy,” Obama stated. “A strong and prosperous Guam is good for the people of Guam and in the best interests of the United States and countries of the Western Pacific region.”
This is more out of touch with reality Nitwitism on Obama’s part. Americas best interests in the Western Pacific are being served by the Bush Admin’s increased ties with the island nation of Singapore.
Guam on the other hand has seen it’s military related population dramatically decrease from 22,178 active duty personnel and dependents in 1992, to less than 10,000 now. Guam will in all probability always be home to The headquarters of Commander, U.S. Naval Forces Marianas but the island’s days as a major logistics base are at or very near an end.
