If you have Jimmy Hoffa on your side, it ain't good. Neither is an on-stage introduction that includes obscenities. Obama says he didn't hear it. He didn't hear his pastor for 20 years. He didn't know the Republican debate was on the same night he scheduled (yet another) speech.
At a week-end program of religious observances for 9/11, there will be a rabbi, a bishop, a lama, a hindu, an imam, the president of the Islamic Society of North America and a Muslim musician. No Baptist or representative from any of the 400+ Protestant denominations in the world has been invited. The White House probably overlooked it.
And another stimulus is coming down the pike. It's our president's best idea to turn the economy around. It hasn't worked before and it didn't work when Bush was in office. A stimulus (Pelosi has deleted the word from all publications) causes a blip as it gets spent then it's over - similar to Cash for Clunkers, but on a bigger scale. Zero percent job growth last month - it's the worst since WWII. Keep doing what you're doing and you get more of what you've got.
Over 1700 waivers for the Affordable Health Care Act have been given to companies who want special permission to not be part of it. An unusually high number of waivers were awarded to businesses in Pelosi's own district. It's such a good program that Congress has their own separate health care program instead of this excellent one passed on Christmas Eve for the People Of America.
