RE: Why fact-checking is important
Well dude, here's the good news: this continual, daily meltdown of Bush's world is leading right to something even I did not think possible a month ago, which is Hillary Clinton walking right into the White House. Never have I seen so many people viscerally disgusted by a president and his party so soon after an election. The Smear Machine is losing its edge, and people just aren't buying the load of crap Iraq has turned into any more. Between that and trying to hand SSI over to Wall Street, you guys are dead. Nothing is getting any better for anybody - the Dead Duck Stock Market, the government that borrows us into economic madness, the endless unwinable war, the moronic failed foreign policy, the long term outlook on jobs, the long term outlook on energy, the free ride for illegal immigrants and their employers, the mass shipment of tech jobs and manufacturing overseas, the whole damn thing is being steered into the rocks and there will be hell to pay.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
