A heavy load?? Excuses, excuses.

This is code-talk for, "I know I promised it but it's really the Republicans fault".

Awwww, gee. Go "organize" a slum. They deal a lot better with BS.

He has to flex his muscles the next 4 years, the load he has to lift is indeed heavy.

After 8 years of lies, arrogant mismanagement, Repugnican misrule and Wall Street greed, it's a tremendous load. I wonder how Sarah Palin would handle it after she'd poisoned John McCain?

The same can be said of Clinton's 8 years. Pay attention.

That's BS, Tap, Clinton and Gingrich's tug-of-war brought a balanced budget (no *real* surplus), the end of federal AFDC giveaways, and a stained blue dress. I'll never forget Gingrich's hypocrisy on doing an intern, since that's what wife #3 was when they were committing adultery. You shouldn't get all your information from Sean Hannity.

Clinton was impeached for perjury, he signed the bill deregulating credit derivatives, he had the same intelligence about Osama that Bush had. Don't insult my intelligence by telling me one politician is better than another, to think so is ignorant.

"President Reagan had an idea about how the world should run. He deregulated Big Business. That is, he removed the restrictions put in place that kept companies from cheating. He removed, primarily economic oversight. He said that it was unAmerican that in this capitalist society that such oversight, such restrictions should exist. He wanted Big Business to have the freedom to do what it will and believed that in doing so, said companies would check themselves. They would check themselves because it was in their best economic interest to do so.

Yet, what he didn't realize is that what was in the best interest of Corporate America could be unknown to Corporate America itself!

Second, he either did not realize or did not care that Corporate America would not run lockstep with Small Town America.

Reaganomics worked to a "t". Market deregulation, finished under W. Bush, and book-cooking and ethics violations ignored by a Republican controlled Congress who, like Reagan, believed that the market would sort itself out, have both succeeded too. And Big Business didn't know when to cut it's losses. It dug deeper and deeper. And we're not finished yet. As the noose slowly tightens around the necks of Corporate America and the wiggle room disappears, this nation's economic infrastructure will hang itself on the fruit born from its greed.
Reagan thought that he could make the rich richer, make himself and his friends richer and richer, off the work of the poor. However, there came a point where their greed defeated the poor and soon will come a point where it defeats the middle class too.
Reagan's error was that he believed that the market would know when it's squeezed enough from the poor, when to stop before crushing it completely. But it didn't.

Needless to say, there is a balance that will never be met.

From the title of the article, I assume that Obama is going to "take it outside", with Hillary.

The only heavy load for Obama is all that bull s h i t coming out of his mouth. It's enough to fill 10,000 dump trucks.

I'm guessing that curtain with the sequins that she had made into a dress and wore early in the day had to weigh at least 25 pounds. I realize that 25 pounds is nothing on Michelle's frame -- she probably didn't even notice it. But I'm wondering if Michelle went commando under those drapes, to save some weight.

I was wwatching the "hood party" for a few minutes last night, and saw them dancing to Beyonce (who has a gorgeous voice). Michelle has a full time job just trying to cover those teeth! She IS Patrick Ewing's twin sister.

I can see it! I always thought she looked like a WNBA player. I wonder if she can sink any free throws, or if she throws up bricks like Patrick used to from the free throw line.
