I'm sure GW gave him an earful at their first meeting. I would have loved to see the expression on BO's face when reality set in. I'm sure the job is a lot different than most pols realize.
Clinton would be proud too.

He is one missile strike away from being dismissed as a hypocrite by the "Muslim community".

So, which campaign promises, the ones made prior to the meltdown of the economy or during the meltdown. Seems the folks on the right get somewhat confused at situations that require dynamic thought.

I read recently that the amount of army related materiel that has been transported to Iraq from the US in the last 5 years would require a bumper-to bumper convoy of 18 wheel tractor trailer trucks from Los Angeles to Miami. This simply boggles one's mind. All wasted and we are lucky if we get 1% of it back in working condition. And all paid for with borrowed money and the tab given to our children and grandchildren.

Unless it has a security priority it will simply be labeled "Abandon in Place".

I suggest you idiots on the right come up with a new plan of attack – Obama’s running Reagan’s play book, brilliantly so for. Otherwise Congressional Republicans are going to get flooded with emails and letters from average Americans demanding they support President Obama’s economic policies. If not the voters will find a remedy at the polls: more Democrats in Congress.

The common thread is that there is NEVER a suggestion of what to do or a better suggestion or a logical alternative, just subjective criticism. And that is usually not even supportable by facts.

As is evidenced by the piss poor planning of the last eight years, I don't believe they understand the unintended consequences of those tactics.
I suggest that President Obama apologize to C.J. Roberts for letting him take the fall for Obama.

This is due to the fact that on his first day in office when he really only had one thing to do (get sworn in) in front of all of those record breaking millions of people who were watching on the Mall after record breaking amounts of money had been spent on the event, he started speaking before he was supposed to and created an avalanche of errors from which neither man was able to properly recover.

Now, if he had some eleventy seven other Presidenty tasks to perform that day in addition to being sworn in (attending church and dancing to Beyonce hardly qualify since anyone can do that), I would agree that I might be picking a nit but since the entire day of Tuesday, January 20th, 2009 had been turned over to the celebration of his taking the oath of office, I feel justified in bringing this up again.

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?
