Great photo op of President Obama touring the Gulf as he has no tie, his shirt sleeves rolled up and picking up sand with a tragic look on his face. Made me just do a Bogo back flip with the sudden rush of confidence.
President WOW (Walk On Water) distanced himself from the issue since it was a BP problem until the PR crap hit the fan along with oil seeping into wetlands and wildlife being inundated with oil. What could the government do about the first problem - the well. Nothing. What could they do about the second problem? Plenty. Are they starting to react? IMHO they are but it was quite slow on the switch. Should have been far more pro active. Should have had the same response regarding resources and response that they had towards Haiti.
Conservatives - naturally - are doing everything possible to hammer away at WOW and his foundlings over the handling of the situation. Payback for criticism of the passive reaction of the Bush (R - Texas Oil) to the Katrina mess. Somehow I just don’t buy into their sudden righteousness.
Rep. Joe Sestak was offered a nice federal appointment if he dropped out of the race against Arlen Spector (D- Screw Loose). The offer had the fingerprints of the White House all over it with even former President Bill Clinton (D - BJ) as the conduit for this offer. Naturally the WOW administration is saying they did nothing wrong. What is interesting is that some Democrats have also joined in to ask for further information since this could be a violation of the following law - 18 U.S.C. Section 201.
The nutrition police have targeted Ronald McDonald as the poster child for the fast food industry attempts to make us all porkers with a variety of diseases that can be traced to out consumption of their products. I was at McDonald’s the other day getting my usual unsweetened ice tea and did notice that they have alternative choices on their menu. Customers don’t want it. Stay in line for five minutes like I did and I didn’t see any salads being purchased. I also saw one of the nutrition police on TV and she looked like it was time to practice what she was preaching.
$10,625,053,544,309.79 was the national debt when Obama was coroneted . Today it is 13 Trillion. Debt is rising at about twice the rate as during the Bush years.
BB is parading around in his spiffy Calter shirt. Times like this make me elated that I vote in precinct two.
The “Religion of Peace” executed a seven year old boy in Afghanistan suspected of spying for NATO on the Taliban.
The message now quietly being circulated is a double-dip recession that some economist - usually with a Obama bumper sticker on their Volvo - are downplaying. Well just gander at the continuing fluctuation of economic data and our economy is economic molasses at this point. The “job creation” bills have simply failed. Unemployment hovers around 10% - Say, WOW, how did that 8% cap work out?. This administration has managed to turn out legislation that has between 1,000 and 2,000 pages each to cover cap and trade, health care and financial reform.
The World Cup is with us again and I am proud that America has continued to reject this silly sport. Soccer is great for young kids until they get old enough to choose a real sport.
In 1996 seven year old Jessica Dubroff was killed along with her father and flight instructor as she was in the second leg of an attempt to be the youngest to make a cross country flight. Yes….send a 16 year old girl on a solo round the world sail.
