Judging from his appointments so far, it’s becoming pretty clear that Obama is going to mean business when he takes over in two months time.

In about three years time Obama’s charm is going to drive us all nuts, but right now, it’s the best way as “That One” would describe it, to get things done.

Perhaps it’s wishful thinking, but I don’t for one minute think that Obama really believes all that bipartisanship BS he keeps spouting. It’s great to get you elected, but it’s a terrible way to run a country. Read the rest of this entry »
