“People are upset that Obama hasn’t solved all the problems yet. C’mon, he’s only been in office one year. You really think he’s gonna solve all our problems in one year? The man went to Harvard, not Hogwarts.”
“No matter how I look at the issue, I cannot escape being troubled by the fact that we have in place a policy which forces young men and women to lie about who they are in order to defend their fellow citizens.”

I’ve read several reports stating the budget will be 100 billion more than last year, but aren’t the Afghan/Iraq wars included instead of being supplementals? If that is the case, the budget is actually, using the accounting bullshit of the Bush years, 50 billion less?

I appreciate that they’re noticing, but how many what the fuck happened to John McCain articles will be written before it sinks in that he’s a bitter asshole.

I really do appreciate his (President Obama) trying to reach across the aisle – as they say – and get Republicans to work towards bipartisanship. But honey, that dog just don’t hunt. Trying to reach bipartisanship with this particular Republican Party will probably achieve bipolarism instead of bipartisanship.
