10-03-08...Last week the American people revolted when Congress proposed a $700 billion bailout package for the financial industry and the House rejected it. So what did Congress do? They came back and passed a $825 billion resolution which bribed enough Representatives to get passage. Enough?
09-26-08...Vice Presidential candidate Senator Joe Biden opined that leadership is when the market crashed in 1929, President Roosevelt went on TV to reassure the nation. It would have been a big surprise to President Hoover that someone had invented a TV. And some people are saying Governor Palin is not qualified to run for VP?
09-19-08...This week Senators Harry Reid and Carl Levin teamed up to block a vote on a bipartisan resolution "recognizing the strategic success of the troop surge in Iraq" and thanking our soldiers for their efforts. Reid declared the war lost in April 2007 and would rather not have to vote to thank the men and women who proved him wrong.
09-12-08...This week, ABC's Charles Gibson held the first post-nomination interview with Governor Sarah Palin. Staring condescendingly over his granny glasses, Gibson asked her to give her opinion of the "Bush doctrine", knowing full well that there have been 6-8 separate issues variously described as the "Bush doctrine." Gov. Palin responded with grace, intelligence, and an elaborate knowledge of foreign affairs. Gibson looked like he was wearing lipstick.
09-05-09...Senator Obama's first reaction to Governor Palin's nomination was to state that he had more executive experience than she did because his campaign budget and staff were larger than the city where she was mayor. This comment slightly ignores the fact that candidates never run their campaign staffs not to mention that she is a governor with a staff and budget ten times that of his campaign.
