"How can you comment on something you DIDN'T EVEN WATCH," you ask?
Simple. It doesn't take a mental giant to figure out the path The Chosen One's BS is going to take you on.
Apparently (from everything that I've had to hear, read and see,) Obimbo -- ONCE AGAIN -- lived up to my expectations BEYOND my wildest dreams.
Mickey Kaus, a Democrat pundit who ran against Boxer in the last election wrote this
... he achieved the rare, magical combination of seeming desperate and condescending at the same time.
I left a comment about 'The Speech' on the Living The Grand Life blog. You can read it there.
Or, you can read it here:
I realize that $447 billion isn't much (not when you put 14 trillion next to it)... and we'll just pay it back in ten years... (say it real fast and you'll never notice it) but what about the $862 billion stimulus program for jobs in 2010? That one averaged out to be $278,000 for each job that WASN'T created and that money is GONE.
Just like that -- GONE -- with nothing to show for it (except, now, we OWE SOMEBODY a LOT of MONEY.) Now, ANOTHER $447 billion to see if THIS one will work?
Other than being about half of what was shoved down a rat hole the first time, what's the difference?
For me, the lyrics to an old Jerry Jeff Walker song keep coming to mind about Obimbo and his administration... "I've been taken again."
