Excuse the mixing of metaphors but sonic is fishing for a sucker so he can beat some more dead horses.

There is a strong sense here that you are still in your formative years looking for a stable self-image.

I distinctly recall Bubba's first month in office when he said we were going to raise taxes.

The Republican Congress took him aside into the woodshed. The next week, Bubba was talking about tax cuts and Welfare reform.

America loved him:-)

Ronald Reagan: Just a reminder

"Well, I learned a lot....I went down to (Latin America) to find out from them and (learn) their views. You'd be surprised. They're all individual countries."

"Facts are stupid things."

"Trees cause more pollution than automobiles."

"All the waste in a year from a nuclear power plant can be stored under a desk."

"Approximately 80 percent of our air pollution stems from hydrocarbons released by vegetation, so let's not go overboard in setting and enforcing tough emission standards from man-made sources."

"We are trying to get unemployment to go up, and I think we're going to succeed."

Criticizing Ed Asner for opposing American foreign policy: "What does an actor know about politics?"

On Clint Eastwood's bid to become mayor of Carmel: "What makes him think a middle-aged actor, who's played with a chimp, could have a future in politics?"

"My name is Ronald Reagan. What's yours?" The individual responded, "I'm your son, Mike," to which Reagan replied, "Oh, I didn't recognize you."

And yet, Rethugs still think this man was somehow "special". Special indeed. In the mentally ill category.

(Where in the Constitution can I find the role of the Federal Government and the Executive Branch is to oversee and regulate football accidents?)
It is sad and synonymously hilarious that this jerk jumps on gay marriage, gender gaps, the "New Subtle Racism", Football Brain Concussions, "If I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon" and racist remarks of a Basketball Team owner while the economy sucks and the world drifts away from America's influence leaving it irrelevant in this century going forward.

And his First Cow wants our children to eat vegetables.

Ours is now a country run by Access Hollywood and The Tonight Show.

Would have been interesting if Obama had had a Republican-controlled Congress after his second year in office and also had to a Republican majority in both the House and the Senate for the entire last six years of his presidency.

Probably would have just whipped out his pen and cellphone a lot sooner.

BOSTON (Reuters)- Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg used his commencement address at Harvard University on Thursday to bash a U.S. academic culture that he described as increasingly intolerant of ideas from outside a narrow liberal spectrum.

Citing the campus protests that caused luminaries including former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and International Monetary Fund head Christine Lagarde to back out of planned speeches, Bloomberg criticized students and faculty for being hostile to ideas that clashed with their own ideologies.

"Today on many college campuses it is liberals trying to repress conservative ideas even as conservative faculty members are at risk of becoming an endangered species.

"A university's obligation is not to teach students what to think but to teach students how to think," he said. "That requires listening to the other side, weighing arguments without prejudice."

He said that an unwillingness to listen to political opponents has led to gridlock in Washington.

Attendees expressed surprise at the tone of his speech.

---------

The attendees expressed surprise?? My jaw is still dragging the floor!

Bloomberg actually compared the liberal intolerance today to McCarthyism.

"I'm going to miss him a lot," Obama said about Carney.
Obama said Carney "has become one of my closest friends" and is a "great advisor" with a "great heart."
Carney did not specify his last day or plans after the White House, but said that he will be leaving in mid-June. Deputy press secretary Josh Earnest will take his place.
"It's been an amazing experience," Carney said of his time as press secretary. "In mid-life you don't often make a whole new set of friends."
Jay Carney is the happiest man on the planet right now.

Exactly.

Also watch now for ¨veterans¨ to start emerging with stories of a wonderful experience with the VA, thanks to Obama's recent actions.
