"Obama now says the federal government is part
of the problem. Trying to insulate himself from the political effects of the Gulf oil spill,
Obama said there has been "a cozy relationship between the oil companies and the federal agency
that permits them to drill." And, uh, who was in charge of that agency for the 15 months before the

Yeah, some of the blame b ut it'a because
oif his stubborn refusal to hold Bush accoutable and "look forward."
The minute Obama took power, he should've had every department
check for sweetheart deals, phoney inspections,
tests that were rigged to save the oil bastards a few dollars,
But no, he wanted to be nice so the snarling dogs would play fair.
Tuesday's elections are a big wake up call for
those who think that America is leaning Republican.
In Pennsylvania, the Democrat beat the Republican
for Congress in Jack Murtha's seat.
Senator Arlen Spector, Republican turned Democrat,
lost to a real Democrat.
In Kentucky, the Tea Party candidate beat the
Republican establishment candidate in the Republican primary.
If the republicans can't even win in a Republican
primary I'd say that the Democrats are going to do much better
than what the news pundits are predicting.
None of this is a surprise for me because the
Republicans caused the mess we're in and they have tried
to obstruct the recovery. While only 1/2 the
country agrees that Democrats are fixing the problem,
no one thinks the Republicans are fixing the
problem. So of course the Republicans aren't going to win.
Maybe Republicans should think about working
with President Obama and accomplishing something
positive and run on a record of accomplishment.
"1 - Surplus Up to $218,000,000,000 Dollars 2 - Poverty at 20 Year Low, Household
Income at All-Time High and 3 - Poll Says 53
Percent of Americans want a New Direction." -- Bartcop.com, from way back
in Issue 150, Link
Yeah, I'm still mad at the Democrats who said the Clinton era
We had a surplus.
We had poverty at a 20-year low.
Household Income was at All-Time High
...and in the summer of 2008 more than half the Democrats said, "We
want something else."
When things were at their BEST, Democrats wanted something else.
"There are a few things if you know about the
brain, they change the way you think about politics. If you understand we evolved the capacity
to feel long before we evolved the capacity to think, instead of barraging people with facts
(the standard Democratic way of talking to voters) you speak to people's core values and
concerns." -- Drew Westen, hired to help Democrats
sell their policies more effectively, Link

and you say you're here to give the
B. Listing the facts is NOT a bad idea.
If you list 5,000 facts with John Kerry's
voice, sure, we're all going to sleep.
"The GOP drive us
into a ditch" is a fact that even stupid people can understand.
C. They could've hired me a lot cheaper AND I speak "dumbass."
I'll bet Mr Fancypants Westen can't speak
"I’ve got a reputation for being fair and honest
and decent. But if you get Orrin Hatch on your side and he really gets his back up, watch
out. It’s just that simple and I’ve done it time after time after time." -- Orrin Hatch, saying he's not a quitter/pussy
like his old friend and colleageBob Bennett, Link
is Hatch running so scared?
He's at least 30 monthjs away from an election...

She fell in love with the national spotlight and lost her ethical compass. That
was a sad day for Alaska and America." -- Palin's mentor, twice-Governor of
Alaska Wally Hickel, Link
Yea, it’s true (hair works too) but the problem
is a pint v a quarter million gallons a day.
We’d be talking about a lot of f’ing hay over
an enormous area.
Oh yea, then we’re talking about all that hay
soaked with all that oil that now has to be cleaned up.

Bart, straw does pick up oil pretty well. Usually
it's been used on beaches, after the oil comes ashore.
Of course, once the oil's on shore, it starts
soaking into the sand, and that's about the worst possible time
to start trying to fix it.
What these two good old boys want to try is to
grab the oil while it's still out on the water, before it gets
into the marshes and beaches and oyster beds.
If it works, that's a much better time to try it.
The problem I would see, is, exactly how much
straw are we talking about here?
I hope some engineer at Tulane is working liking
a M(%^#$$&#*#$ on the practical aspects.
One thing they do have right, is that it can't
make the situation worse.
