In other news, Andre Dawson going in the HOF as an Expo. HA!

It is also time to recognize that Obama had the chance to be another FDR. Instead he has already failed.
His first fail was to keep Robert Gates on board to run the American empire instead of beginning the dismantlement of this wasteful project.
Number two was putting Tim Geithner in charge of anything. Money that could be plowed into rebuilding America's infrastructure, building more schools, and creating badly needed jobs programs is instead being poured down the sinkholes in Afghanistan and Iraq and in the more than 700 military installations we maintain worldwide.
Number three was bringing Larry Summers on board to run the council of economic advisors, and keeping the foolish mind of Robert Rubin close by.
And recently, this deeply conservative president has decided that the useless regulator Ben Bernanke deserves another term. Apparently competence is irrelevant when Obama makes personnel decisions.
Some economists have pointed out that a two trillion dollar hole was blown in the economy when the meltdown occurred and that the federal government needed to fill that hole just to keep the economy where it was when Obama took office. What did Obama put into that hole, three hundred billion?

Ty O'Mara

No Bobby Jindahl to give the rebuttal tonight, damn, how disappointing. I didn't see any Republicans sitting down too long tonight. They just kept standing up and applauding. Barack Delano O'Bama spewing common sense as if it were free for the taking. Combat troops out of Iraq this August, Hallelujah. Withdraw from Afghanistan in 2011, am I dreaming? No.

This is the worst period in American history for most of us, we have only one alternative, make this country better.

About a third of the way through the speech, I saw McCain smiling and leaning over to whisper to a colleague, " He is unbelieveable, what a speaker." The colleague with tears in his eyes just nodded. It was R.J.


2012. I only hope the NYTimes is still around to see it.
