“Obama’s Katrina”

Saturday, June 12th, 2010

I keep flashing back to this John Stewart piece about how conservatives are always looking for the perfect analogy between something that goes wrong in the Obama Administration and something Bush screwed up.

“It’s like no matter what happens during the Obama Administration, there’s the perfect Bush fuckup” for conservatives to compare it to.

Obama Cleans the Republicans’ Clock

Monday, February 1st, 2010

This was good stuff on Friday.

I caught it live and I thought it was amazing.

It was so extraordinary that MSNBC had a two hour prime time special with all three anchors on the discussion.

By contrast, Fox broke away from the live sparring between the GOP members of the House and the President of the United States to have pundits talk about what a bad president Obama is (in other words, their regular programming).

I gotta say, I like the post-Massachusetts Obama.

He’s not going down without a fight.

For a little while, he put the spotlight back on the Republicans and showed how irresponsibly they have acted since he became president and how bereft of good ideas they really are. The Party of No indeed.

The Democrats probably already cooked their goose for 2010, but maybe a few people will think about the alternative before they just vote blindly against the Dem’s. If they do they’ll realize that these are the same guys who put us in this mess and were overwhelmingly rejected by the voters in 2006 and in 2008.
