Did you watch the debate? Give the President this: he was louder this time and more energetic, and his suit jacket fit better. No lump between his shoulder blades.
And this time, when he came up against that ‘can you name three of your mistakes’ question, he had an answer. Yes, he had made mistakes. Made some bad appointments. Didn’t want to embarrass them on national TV by saying who.
Bill Stosine: ‘Bush’s dodge of the mistakes question is even more revealing, and unflattering, than at first glance. The only thing he pointed to as a mistake was appointments he had made. Which is to say, the only mistake he’s made is that other people are doing a bad job. Even his single ‘mistake’ is someone else’s fault.’
It’s Columbus Day. Take the day off. Go to the movies. See GOING UPRIVER.
Quote of the Day
I'm proud to be paying taxes in the United States. The only thing is, I could be just as proud for half the money.~Arthur Godfrey (when the top federal bracket was 90%)
