Perfectly clear (and tales from the halfway house)
I thought President Obama's speech on Libya was perfectly clear. (I'm off my meds, but never mind.) Taking out Gadhafi would upset the French and upsetting the French is something we have never done.
We hear a lot these days about preparedness. Preparedness is when Republicans prepare attacks on Obama's speech before he delivers it.
No ground troops will set foot in Libya. At least not until more kids join the Army.
I guess Obama will never lose that professorial image. Monday night we got the professor but the Republicans hoped for Gilligan.
Say what you will about G.W. Bush, but the man knew how to dumb it down.
As a possible government shutdown lurches toward April 8, both parties are working around the clock to achieve mutual blame.
Democrats and Republicans promised to meet each other halfway -- as soon as they determine what the definition of "half" is.
Republicans came up with budget cuts of $61 billion and Democrats proposed $10 billion. Voila! Halfway.
The Democrats say they're still looking for "low-hanging fruit to pluck." If the government shuts down, the ones who are plucked will be us.
