Apology for arrogance
The reigning king of Narcissism apologized in the country of arrogance (France) for the American arrogance of the past, but also criticized Europe of it’s own arrogance against America, but not once did he apologize for his own arrogance.
President Barack Obama is observing first hand what “tough talk” does to rectify a tense situation. He warned North Korea, last week that if the missle was fired there would be “serious consequences.” The North Koreans no more listened to his sword rattling then they did to President Bush’s. The U.S. response? File for a sanction through the U.N. to go along with the other two resolutions they haven’t responded to……wow the U.N., I know that would have sure scared me to death…….sorry Obama, you blinked, now what?
Stirring the pot of anger
Senate did such a good job of stirring the pot of anger about the AIG bonuses of $165 million, but remains curiously silent about the $210 million paid in bonuses to executives of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. These government subsidized organizations that failed do to the inaction of Congressional Democrats, and subsequently had donated large amounts of money to those same Democrats re-election campaigns have been paid more then the AIG execs…….the moral here is to donate in a more direct way, like directly into their pockets!
Statement that nobody remembers
Joe Biden recalls a meeting with Bush that makes no sense, but he defends it anyway
"We are rebuilding America's ability to lead," Biden said. "And I remember President Bush saying to me one time in the Oval Office, and he was a great guy, enjoyed being with him. He said to me, he said, well, Joe, he said, I'm a leader. And I said, Mr. President, turn around and look behind you. No one's following. People are beginning to follow the United States again as a consequence of our administration." His tense is all wrong, why would he be talking to Bush in the Oval Office after “his” administration was being followed?…maybe he snuck back in the cloak of darkness.
