Chairman Obama? 

The headline on the front page of today's Wall Street Journal reads, "Obama Budget Pushes Sweeping Change." It's pretty clear from the facts, not to mention Obama's own words, that he intends to turn the country into a much larger pre-Thatcher UK, or even more socialist than that.

It's also pretty clear that Obama wants to make his mark on history to the same extent, if not effect, as Washington, Lincoln and FDR. In short, he wants to be revered as a sort of savior--the messiah meme returns with a vengeance.

To paraphrase a famous lady, for the first time in my life I'm not proud of my country.

I wonder how long it will be before we all have to carry around little books titled, "Quotations from President Obama," and suffer punishment at the hands of the government if we don't.

As I've said before, I HOPE all this CHANGE doesn't ruin us, But I'm getting more and more pessimistic.

Obama Administration Ethics 

Geithner was confirmed and it's probable that Daschle will be, too. In my opinion, despite what they say, both of those guys knowingly and willfully failed to pay taxes they owed, hoping that they wouldn't be audited. When they got caught, they ponied up, but if they hadn't been appointed to Cabinet positions, they probably would have gotten away with it. I agree with Instapundit reader Thomas Prewitt: "I vote that we audit everyone in Congress and the Administration and see how many other tax cheats we have.”

As to Geithner and Daschle being confirmed, I want to know what it would take for an Obama appointee not to be confirmed. Talk about setting standards and being role models ... Yechhhh!

How's this for a bumper sticker: "NO MORE SCUMBAGS IN WASHINGTON!!!!"
