By request since everyone is asking for it!
A magnificent mission of the four-door Navy SEALs, and it took plenty of guts on the part of this president to pull the trigger on this one. But it certainly didn’t take long for the left stream media to take a shot at President Bush. Make no mistake this is a great accomplishment for the young president. But let’s not forget the groundwork and intelligence was laid by the Bush administration. Still, CNN and Democratic Congressman Gary Ackerman couldn’t resist the moment. Video below the fold.

The good news Mexican President Calderon doesn’t hide his hypocrisy. The bad news he doesn’t care. That should be enough to infuriate even the fence sitting Americans when it comes to Arizona’s illegal immigration bill. You know the one that prohibits profiling by race. The one that prohibits cops from asking about immigration status in the course of a criminal investigation. The one that … oh why bother. I suspect neither President has read the bill. Read more
Two years? Yup, two years. At least that’s what White House Advisor and part time CNN pundit tells Wolf Blitzer. He sounds kind of nervous to me, as in … this ain’t working as fast as we thought it might. Playing the American people for two years, even by the One, is a tall order.
The Launching point is a Washington Post Poll:
Two-thirds of Americans approve of the way Obama is handling the country’s top job, and six in 10 give him good marks on issue No. 1, the flagging economy. Those figures are little changed from last month. But he receives lower marks for dealing with the federal budget deficit after submitting a plan that would see continued huge deficits over the next decade. Fifty-two percent back Obama on his approach to the deficit, with the public split about evenly over whether belt-tightening or big increases in spending should be used to try to improve the economy.
None of this surprises me given the hope n change that came with President Hope n Change. And to be honest, I would be surprised if it were otherwise. But if things don’t improve or improve only modestly … will the American people give him even more than 6 months before they call it “The Obama Economy”? Oh yeah, says his White House/CNN media advisor, Paul Begala told Wolf tonight.
Sounds like he has a little hopenchange going for himself there. Why else would he play the “Bush” card. Not even the people polled blame “W” anymore.
… the public overwhelmingly blames the excesses of the financial industry, rather than the new president, for turmoil in the economy, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.
Sounds like Bush/Rush/Palin ain’t playing anymore. But that’s just me. So how long do you give the young President.
Honest Poll … how long do you actually think the American people will give Obama to turn the economy. And I do mean turn.
Oh yeah really … Cafferty does a piece you and I would say was mildly critical of Obama complete with a cheap shot at Rush Limbaugh calling him a “corpulent Oxycontin aficionado of right-wing talk radio” … watch it all … then watch Wolf at the end spank Cafferty for the cheap shot.
No, not for the cheap shot at Rush … for criticizing the Messiah of course.Wolf is just adorable. Hat tip to Hot Air “We pick You Click”.
How dare you Jack … didn’t you get the CNN memo.
And here’s some bonus video. The only really critical letter from a viewer. The best part comes at the end.
