But my brain failed (Update Below!!!). However, that won't stop me from doing what I have been waiting for. Thus, I do some searching to clarify.
First, a little nod to President Obama.
Report: Obama Expanding Pakistan Missile Strikes
I do have to give credit where credit is due. And hopefully, his actions in Pakistan (doing some serious damage to terrorists) keep up. Only in making sure these bastards keep dying can we keep our country safe. And for all that he said during the campaign, the President hasn't gone completely left. Must have been those security briefings.
While I was reading this, I also found this article:
Poll: Obama More Popular Than Jesus, Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr.
Jesus came in second on a list that includes God, Mahtma Gandhi and George Washington.I'll let you all read the rest. It's a hoot. It's also a reason to laud this on the POTUS:
Other historic or notable figures making the top 10 were Martin Luther King Jr., Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush, Abraham Lincoln, John McCain, John F. Kennedy, U.S. Airways pilot Chesley Sullenberger and Mother Teresa.
Here's the first article:
America's Deficit-Spending Spree Raises Alarms
The Congressional Budget Office has forecast that the deficit for the current budget year will hit $1.2 trillion, but that estimate does not include the cost of President Obama's $787 billion economic stimulus plan, which he signed this week.From the Bullshit! package (subsidizing corporate jets), to talk about bank nationalization, to another regulatory nightmare, the deficit keeps on rising. And I've heard talk of more bailouts coming.
Update: Thanks to Dee, I know what set me on this path. President Obama had a bunch of mayors in the White House and warned them to spend the Bullshit! package wisely. Barack, if you want to see how wise a big chunk of cash like this is spent, look at the Dastardly Bastardly Bailout. For some reason, I think we will do worse with this package.
Then there's this article:
Obama Budget Aims to Cut Deficit in Half by End of Term
Yeah. $1.2 trillion plus the bailouts, and he's going to go for $600 billion next year?
I'll spoon my ass if he manages it (and be seriously impressed). But for coming up with something more unrealistic than the Oscars (if you actually watch the show (and it's not your job), you're an asshat), this award's for you, Barry!
