    Wow, I miss having a president who talked insane and acted the opposite instead of the reverse....

    Bush has some great lines... I still think John Kerry has the all time best political line ever with, "I voted for the war before I voted against it." Kinda sums up politics in a single sentence.

    From the smartest woman in the world, Hillary Clinton:
    "It is hard enough with two parties to come to any resolution, and I say this very respectfully, because I feel the same way about our own democracy, which has been around a lot longer than European democracy."

    And some great pre-President Obama gaffs:
    "On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes -- and I see many of them in the audience here today -- our sense of patriotism is particularly strong."
    "Over the last 15 months, we've traveled to every corner of the United States. I've now been in 57 states? I think one left to go."
    "Come on! I just answered, like, eight questions."
    "Let me be absolutely clear. Israel is a strong friend of Israel's."
    "If I had to name my greatest strength, I guess it would be my humility. Greatest weakness, it's possible that I'm a little too awesome."

    Waa waa! The Republicans lost, Doc, and they can't even give the guy a hundred days to dig us out of this huge hole left by Bush. Well too bad, too sad! You have no choice but to give the president time.

    Funny Stuff Wolf! lol.

    BUT... lol. Lets see if I can paint a bigger picture by quoting some other folks..

    Barney Frank:
    "Concerns about the banking industry are overblown." (Maybe he said "overblown" because he was lovers with Fannie Mae exec Herb Moses during the scandal where his live-in lover took obscene profits from the company? lolz)

    "I do not think we are facing any kind of crisis." He says this as the collapse begins, and later says that the crisis is the Republican's fault when he blocked EVERY attempt to fix it.. mostly because his lover was still raking in huge profits!

    "[Yes I admit to] hiring Steve Gobie for sex [but that doesn't mean that's why I tried to get him out of those parking tickets]" lolz


    "I bowled a 129. I guess it was like the [******* in the] Special Olympics or something."

    "On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes and ... I see many of them in the audience here today."

    "The economy is fundamentally sound." (He called McCain naive for saying the same thing!)

    "Bush increased the debt too much... [so my solution is to triple what Bush spent in my first 3 weeks in office.]"

    "Kansas tornadoes killed 10,000 people..." oops... The actual death toll: 12. (New math?)

    Obama claimed that his parents got together as a result of the Selma Alabama march... except that he was born 4 years before it happened.

    He claimed his uncle helped liberate Auschwitz. Didn't happen.

    He claimed to have been racially awakened at age 9 and "profoundly and explicitly remembers" photographs and an article in Life Magazine... that don't exist.

    He said: "Iran is a tiny country... that can't threaten us... [although] Ive said for years that the threat from Iran is grave."

    Michelle Obama

    "For the first time in my adult lifetime, I am actually proud of my country." ... how selfish can you be if you only see GOOD when YOU are personally experiencing success?

    "We've got real experience of a difference that those types of experience can make." ... lol. It's just funny to read it.

    "It’s easier to hold on to your own stereotypes and misconceptions. It makes you feel justified in your own ignorance… That’s America."

    Funny Stuff... oh wait.. they weren't making grammar errors.. they actually believe that stuff they said?.... sad.

    My favorite moment of the new administration.
    Hillary Clinton goes to Russia, meets with the foreign minister, and hands him a "reset" button. Only the word they use in Russian actually means "overloaded" or "overcharged". I can only hope our spies translate better. Besides, I thought we were trying to get their finger off the red button?

    His actions were more garbled than his speaking.
