Obama - Smoke and Mirrors

Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel shows that Obama is bringing a classy act to the White House.
Bill Clinton administration is being recycled in more than one way.

A friend e-mailed me a comment purportedly from the London Daily Mail. It took a bit of googling to find it actually is from the Toronto Sun. Michael Coren's article includes:

A victory for the hysterical Oprah Winfrey, the mad racist preacher Jeremiah Wright, the mainstream media who abandoned any sense of objectivity long ago, Europeans who despise America largely because they depend on her, comics who
claim to be dangerous and fearless but would not dare attack genuinely powerful special interest groups. A victory for Obama-worshippers everywhere.

The writer's point is very simple: Obama has nothing in his very thin resume that would justify election to President of the United States. Almost all of his achievements were in Chicago, and Chicago shows no signs of being improved by Obama's ministrations. But the man who couldn't fix Chicago is the man to handle the whole world's problems?

Of course, Obama will be ably supported by the Democrats. Democrats are the ones who pour fuel on burning disasters. Remember how Bill Clinton was proud to sign financial deregulation promoted by Robert Rubin and his acolyte, Lawrence Summers? Liberal columnist Robert Scheer does, and wonders why Obama chose Summers to solve the problem Summer helped create. Meanwhile, Robert Rubin has walked away an extremely wealthy man from the train wreck he orchestrated at Citibank.

Timing is everything, right Democrats?

President Bush, after many attempts to reform housing financing, was left holding the bag while U-Tube is rife with videos of Barney Frank, the Congressional Black Caucusl, and the other usual suspects opposing tighter regulations because that would deny poor people "affordable" housing.

Being a Democrat means you never have to be responsible for you foul-ups, right?
