According to ABC News, the White House is once again making multi-billion dollar efforts to help out “troubled borrowers” who have mortgages that they can’t afford.

If the new health care legislation just forced onto the American people is so great, then of course the likes of Obama, Biden, Pelosi, members of the presidential cabinet, etc. all want to be a part of it, right?

While campaigning, Obama repeatedly said things like “transparency and the rule of law will be the touchstones of this Presidency.” However, that appears to be yet another “campaign promise” that he never intended on fulfilling. Recall the exchange during the “health care summit” between John McCain and Obama recently, where McCain mentioned to Obama that [...]

Catch-up

What in the hell is going on here?  Am I over-reacting or is this sort of a big deal?  Is this a common doctor recommendation for our past presidents? Guardian is reporting that doctors have told Obama that he needs to “moderate his alcohol intake.”  His doctor’s report is being widely reported under headlines mentioning [...]
