The Obama's administration's leading plan to fix General Motors Corp. and Chrysler LLC would use bankruptcy filings to purge the ailing companies of their biggest problems, including bondholder debt and retiree health-care costs, according to people familiar with the matter.
Let's see who, amongst others, said this first. Well, theres this guy.
Of course, this is after he has given them $25 BILLION. Guess those TARP loans wont be paid back either. Thanks, Dumb Ass, er, Mr. President.
The Department of Defense briefed the President this morning and told OBAMA that two Brazilian soldiers were killed in Iraq. To everyone's surprise, all the color drained from Obama's face. Then he collapsed onto his desk, head in his hands, visibly shaken, almost in tears.
Finally, he composed himself and asked, "Just how many is a brazilian?"

Big libs all over are questioning their own wisdom. Go figure. The latest is Michael Wolffat Vanity Fair.
Sheesh, the guy is Jimmy Carter.
That homespun bowling crap on Jay Leno, followed by the turgid, teachy fiscal policy lecture, together with the hurt defensiveness (and bad script for it) that everybody in Washington "is Simon Cowell… Everybody's got an opinion," is pure I’m-in-over-my-head stuff. Even the idea of having to go on Jay Leno to rescue yourself from the AIG mess is lame. Be a man, man.
The guy just doesn’t know what to say. He can’t connect. Emotions are here, he’s over there. He can’t get the words to match the situation.
This began, I’d argue, from the first moment. He punted on the inaugural. Everybody ran around like crazy trying to praise it because if Barack Obama couldn’t give a speech then what?
But now, at week 11, we’re face-to-face with the reality, the man can’t talk worth a damn.
Due to recent budget cuts and the cost of electricity,gas and oil, as well as current market conditions and the continued decline of the U.S. economy ….. the light at the end of the tunnel has been turned off. We apologize for the inconvenience
Sad end to a great warhorse.When I moved to the Bay Area in 1986 this was THE boat on the bay. Blackhaller was the king of the roost and Paul, who would later become the "Great Cayardini" was his protege. Good times in the sailing community. (Wink, wink, nudge, nudge say no more, eh!)
One of the designers, Phil Kaiko worked on the America True effort of which the olde Rumbear was on the periphery.
Blackhaller is gone and now has a bouy named after him. Us-49? She is gone. Paul???? Where is he???
I mean, you have my book list.....it's all in there. I have said it here. Now some pointy heads at UCLA chime in.
Two UCLA economists say they have figured out why the Great Depression dragged on for almost 15 years, and they blame a suspect previously thought to be beyond reproach: President Franklin D. Roosevelt.
After scrutinizing Roosevelt's record for four years, Harold L. Cole and Lee E. Ohanian conclude in a new study that New Deal policies signed into law 71 years ago thwarted economic recovery for seven long years.
"Why the Great Depression lasted so long has always been a great mystery, and because we never really knew the reason, we have always worried whether we would have another 10- to 15-year economic slump," said Ohanian, vice chair of UCLA's Department of Economics. "We found that a relapse isn't likely unless lawmakers gum up a recovery with ill-conceived stimulus policies."
Those who don't bother to learn from the past are bound to relive it. Hopey/Changey!
