A Must Read

A study in contrasts told in cigarettes.

Are you getting the feeling that Obama, contrary to the hope hype, is a very grim, depressed man? Since the precise moment of his inauguration, his every pronouncement has been redolent of hopelessness and anger...

In other words, everything that we see in that picture of Obama and his cigarette, we see in his speeches, predictions, threats and apologies. He’s got all of Roosevelt’s vices (economic insanity) and none of his virtues (good cheer and optimism). Americans like optimism, because they are essentially an optimistic people. It is our national nature, and I do wonder how long it will be before they turn against this man, just as they turned against Carter, the last president to try to drag the American people into his own personal depression.

Indeed.

Guess he should've thought a little bit longer about what it actually entails to be POTUS. He was arrogant enough to believe that everyone was going to be blinded by his bright shining light. Party's over!

Guy doesn't have a clue what to do with a real job. He'll float through best he can for now until the grownups come back. Either that or he's a real Machiavelli; I haven't decided yet. :D

I wonder if he feels just a little regret for the way GWB was treated by his party yet?
Somehow I doubt it. But I don't think it will be very long before he feels sorry for himself.

Larry, truer words were never spoken.

He doesn't feel any regret for W, but he will. When he's feeling sorry for himself because his dreams didn't come true. But, it will be the fault of racists because everyone else loves him and thinks he's cool. This guy is so self-absorbed....

I've seen neutron stars who were less self-absorbed.
