Then at some later time it will go up. Followed by a period of going down. Then, a huge surprise, it will go up again.

Repeat.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and thats what I intend to reverse.

Obama to propose regulation overhaul Wednesday - Jun. 15, 2009

That ain't no cowboy capitalism, pardner.

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.

We'd have more intelligent thought around here if you held your breath with a plastic bag.
