did I mention how much I hate obama…

... because I wasn't sure if I was clear in the past; I hate obama. He's an arrogant tool. "When asked by Oprah for his self-report card, the president resisted the urge to give himself an A+, instead giving himself 'a good solid B-plus. B plus because of the things that are undone. Health care is not yet signed. If I get health care passed, we tip into A minus.'"

time for another Crescat Contest…

... Started by St. Francis in 1223, the nativity scene has become an endearing symbol commemorating the birth of Christ.

All would be improved if Obama were to use this unspent money immediately to reduce the deficit or to shore up the FDIC or to engage in some other prudent, unsexy, and long-term matter. But he’s constitutionally incapable of doing so because, in spite of his alleged reluctance to have the government overly involved in the economy, he has not yet … [Read more...]
