    That just said it all.
    I'm so mad I could smash my fist through a wall. But won't.

    Probably won't be able to stop myself once those hearings on the Obama administration begin.GOD- the irony!!
    You know--those "urban" cats and their "walking around money"......so unlike the CPAC crowd are used to, With their yachts and private clubs.

    We never tell the truth about things in America. We sugar-coat and white-wash everything. Why are we such babies?

    Oh, and Reagan showed Cheney "deficits don't matter".
    60% of our current one is tax cuts.>another Reagan Legacy< Used to blackmail the president so gvt. could continue to function.

    The keys to the Henhouse was given to the Wolves. Would Ronnie be proud?
