Obama in over his head

It's only been 7 weeks since the man whose resume fits nicely on the back of a postage stamp became the most powerful human being in the universe.  As Presidents go, Barack Obama has proven at least one thing true:  change is like the flip of a coin.  Change can bring the best of times; change can bring the worst of times.  And anyone over the age of twelve ought to have known that.  Instead, 52% of the American electorate has run around like a bunch of howling ninnies for the past year chanting like a horde of Jim Jones' followers, who can't get enough of the poison kool-aid.

So much for progressive enlightenment.

With an economy in shambles, slinking toward all-out depression a little further each day, the President doesn't know the difference between a popularity-based political tracking poll and the confidence meter of the stock market, which represents the actual savings and pension funds of millions and millions of ordinary Americans.  Heck, the golden boy of campaign one-liners doesn't even know that P/E ratio stands for price/earnings, not profit/earnings. 

If only he had once had a paper route instead of all those pick-up games with the hoops.

That famed transition team-- the team that was given greater inside access than ever in history by a more-than-gracious out-going President, is about to go down as the most incompetent bunch of nincompoops ever produced by a university system.   Those fancy degrees are evidently not worth the paper upon which they're printed. 

In a time of mounting economic peril, even as the transition team dithered, one would have thought that fully staffing the Department of the Treasury would have been top priority.  Not for this bunch.  Timothy tax-cheat-TurboTax-challenged Geithner is a one-man Treasury Department and is so out of touch that he spent precious minutes in front of a Congressional panel scolding our own gas and oil companies for damaging the environment, even as a record 31.8 million Americans sign up for food stamps.

Earth to Tim:  You won't get the Country out of this mess by slamming the companies that hire us so we won't need to be on the dole.

Is there a single business enterprise in America that this administration doesn't hate with a death wish?

The DOW has been sleadily climbing the last few days, and has been (and still is) the highest since November. Its at 7124.90 as of 12:11pm Pacific time. Just to let you know.

On election day, the Dow closed at 9625. Just to let you know.

Many of the folks in Jonestown did not want to drink the kool-aid but instead were forcibly poisoned. Seems like the media and our Congress are trying to do the same thing by shoving this guy and his anti-solutions down our throats. No one can ask for water because we're being choked by this administration's power grab in the name of Neo Marxist Socialism not-so-cleverly disguised as the Democratic Party.

I stand corrected. But it IS going back up. I hope it continues.

I misinterpreted the information I was getting. It had the most gains since November. Sorry 'bout that :-)
