Cold Front - Not Much Hope

Burrr. Cold out. The thermometer says 70 degrees for the first time in a long while this morning. Even The Boy couldn't take it. I opened the door - I felt the cold air rush in - and I went outside to see what the temperature is. As I was headed back inside The Boy didn't even bother with his usual "I'll go sniff here and here before I come in." Nope. He has short hair. He wanted back in, and quickly.

Interesting editorial in one of today's papers: "Don't pin much hope on Obama." No worries in that regard. None whatsoever. Hmmph! Well that didn't take long did it? The excuses have already begun and the man has not even been sworn into office yet. If I didn't post this article from last week, I should have. Clearly not everyone in the Middle East is convinced that Mr. Obama is America's best choice for President. I don't think it is going to take very long for people to catch on to the fact that our new administration isn't going to be able to perform the miracles that have been promised.

I am done with politics. Unless something earth-shattering happens I won't be posting anything more about the election. It is over. Done. The man that won is not who I supported, but then, the man I supported wasn't necessarily the best choice either. And, honestly, I don't think Senator McCain wanted to win this past election or he could have. We have the chance to start cleaning things up again in 2010 and then do a thorough house-cleaning in 2012 [and I mean thorough - the whole lot of 'em ought to be thrown out! with the exception of a small handful - very, very small handful!!!].


  1. Well, I think the Americans wanted Bush out of that chair! and Obama is a good -should that be excellent- orator. McCain I haven't got a clue what he was talking about.
    Obama isn't good for Indians - if he is sending them out of USA.
    Whatever it is, the election is over and I am happy to see Bush kicked out as soon as possible

  2. For all that Bush has done wrong, Bobby, he has done a lot of "right," too. Obama is only a good orator if he has a teleprompter in front of him. Uh uh uh... As far as McCain - apparently a lot of folks didn't have a clue what he was trying to say. I am happy that the election is over, done with. But I do believe that GWB deserves some credit for much of what he has done that the MSM and others refuse to attribute to him. I supported him twice, but I cannot say that I am sorry he is leaving.

  3. not that I deny Bush was always an arrogant warrior or something. he did many developmental works too. But they are faded by his bad works!
    when you see from here - ie Middle East hardly any newspaper told of the actual situation in America. But I was bombarded with bloody pics of Iraq.
    We all know what media does...

  4. And we all KNOW the media is in no way biased, right Bobby? Um-hmm...
