  • The AIG Bonuses: A Welcome Scandal [View article]
    Don't be fooled this is team Obama's favorite tactic. Gin up some outrage to distract America from really egregious behavior. In this case it's get those greedy evil executives bonuses to distract us from $90 BILLION TO EUROPEAN BANKS. That is only part of this whole circus. Let's take stock: War in south west Asia. Check. Financial sector melt down. Check. Real estate markets still in free fall. Check. Credit crunch continuing. Check. What is a president to do? Talk to Jay Leno and appear on ESPN for march madness of course. So what is the real madness and why aren't we all really mad about it?

  • Will Obama Succeed in Maintaining His Approval Rating? [View article]
    President Obama has more problems with his popularity than just AIG. The man crammed a stimulous bill of nearly a trillion dollars down our throats knowing full well it would only stimulate the friends of Barak. Soon he and his designated scape goat Nancy Pelosi will be back for a real stimulous package. Lets not give it to them since they have made such a mess with the first two or three or four (TARP, TARP II, Porculous I and Ear Mark Omnibus.). They must at this time quit blaming Bush as he was responsible for spending only the first $350B of TARP I and didn't sign any of the other garbage we have gotten since inauguration day. Now vice presiden Buffon Biden is yammering that President Obama inherited a worse economy than FDR. I guess he slept through the Carter administration. All of this will continue to erode team Obama's numbers and provide more head winds for their socialist agenda.
