BUT FIRST: A REALITY CHECK
The President’s approval rating is back down to 43% — never mind that the American Ebola death toll has peaked (at zero), job growth’s healthy, the deficit’s down by two-thirds, health care inflation’s at a 50-year low . . . and on and on and on. (“By any standard,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell assures us, “Barack Obama has been a disaster for our country.”)
But do you know what?
President Reagan’s approval rating at this same time in his second term was also 43%.
And George W. Bush’s was . . . 33%. And that was before the economy collapsed on his watch.
Meanwhile . . .
A PLANE LARGER THAN A FOOTBALL FIELD
Largest plane in the world with a wingspan substantially wider than a football field.
And it flies!
Surgeons holding hearts in their hands . . .
. . . holographically!
Stay tuned, kids: it gets more amazing every day.
