<< < (57/58) > >>

 Obama ran on the "We Want Change" theme.  Well, we got change alright....   :(

Actually, we didn't.  That was pretty much the point IMO.  He's pretty much the same as W in the ways that count, and has continued the programs of his predecessor.

Oh no, we got change alright.  More money spent than any president ever, national deficit doubled... blah blah blah.  But you still have to read in the sarcasm in that post....   :P

Yeah... those numbers are disputable.  Both sides are to blame... and definitely not just the president.  Or do you believe that Clinton left office with a surplus almost double what the deficit was when W was in office?  I don't believe the hyperbole either way... both are the same... we have the Republicrat party, and whoever is in power just gets the most money at the time.   :-\

“Senator Obama warned about Patriot Act abuses. President Obama proved him right.”

    Two weevils crept from the crumbs. “You see those weevils, Stephen?” said Jack solemnly.

    “I do.”

    “Which would you choose?”

    “There is not a scrap of difference. Arcades ambo. They are the same species of curculio, and there is nothing to choose between them.”

    “But suppose you had to choose?”

    “Then I should choose the right-hand weevil; it has a perceptible advantage in both length and breadth.”

    “There I have you,” cried Jack. “You are bit — you are completely dished. Don’t you know that in the Navy you must always choose the lesser of two weevils? Oh ha, ha, ha, ha!”

So, are we truly to believe that congressional claim that they too are victims of larger darker forces ... Or do we continue to assume, that they too, are simply lying to us. Neither option is at all good.

Lesser of evils indeed.

That's why no comment :(
