The First 100 Days

For some strange reason, I have been asked to comment on the first 100 days of the Obama Administration. Unfortunately I was busy ranting about the automobile industry yesterday and missed my opportunity. 

Even though I am prepared to comment today, somehow commenting on the first 101 days does not seem nearly so important or news-worthy. Not to leave the small and rather twisted audience of this blog without any comment on the subject however, I will at least say this about the first 101 days.
1359 to go ...

OMG, has it only been 101 days??...feels more like 101 weeks at least...

"1359 to go ..."Can we afford another 1359 days of his wild spending?

Prehaps the better question is, can our children's children and their children afford his wild spending?

(Is there any truth to the comment that "Obama" in whatever country he was really born, means:
Spends like an Arabian oil prince???)

While even drunken sailors are beginning to be shocked, I never the less maintain my confidence in the American people's ability to survive bad presidents. I just wonder if we will recognize a good one if they come along.

As for the name translation, I heard "He whose brain lives in a teleprompter", but I suppose it depends what language you translate it from.

I'll say this:
It sure is a lot different than the previous 8 years.


Tim Higgins said...


There are differences, I have to agree. Good, bad, indifferent ... I'm not sure. You have to remember however, that I'm not much of a fan of the last 8 years either.

We do seem to be caught on a runaway train however, and that always scares me.

Roland Hansen said...

Tim H,
I really like the train over here.

I prefer:

but then my tastes can run to the bizarre.

Roland Hansen said...

Bizarre is putting it mildly.
But, what can I expect from a guy that runs conservative.....
