Itll take President Barack Obama more than a couple of town hall appearances to get his health care reform proposals back on track because health care isnt the only thing that needs tweakinghe needs someone on the team to help him figure out how to get his mojo back.
Obama has aides for every occasion: Senior adviser Valerie Jarrett is his liaison to big business; Defense Secretary Bob Gates keeps him on the good foot with the military; Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel patrols Capitol Hill; TARP Czar Elizabeth Warren explains the unexplainable.
Whats missing from the presidents brain trust is a wise, old uncle. He needs someone whos witnessed the last 50 years of American history from the ground levela wise Latino, if you will.
Someone in the inner circle needs to have the green light to pull the presidents coat on any new proposal and ask him, Are you kidding me?

The President brings his own crowd to his staged events. I think I read last week that Michelle had 400 with her on a ride on the rapids.
Real wisdom comes from God and you have to ask for it to get it.
This is his Bush moment. Except Bush had the sane percentage of the population who WANTED desperately to support him. Obama has the insane portion as his base. Anything seemingly rational he may want to do, if at all there is anything, will be viewed by them as defection and turning his back on the dream of living in East Germany circa 1955ish. He’s in a tough spot. I like it.
Hello this is Yellowstone. Their are hiking/jogging trails with wonderful views, fresh air, etc.
The “demonize” Onadacare opponents is in full swing. My local paper ran six “letters to the editor” today. Four of them were pro-Obamacare. The theme in each one is that Conservatives hate. They pointed to Onada signs with Hitler moustaches, weapons being brought to town meetings, a sign that allegedly read “Michelle and her stupid kids should be killed” as evidence of their point—and so forth. And, of course, we’ve been hearing from dem pols, and their media shills, for two weeks that conservatives want Onada dead.
We now know that the “joker” poster of Onada was perpetrated by a Demrat. And we know there is absolutely no proof of any conservative wanting Onada or his wife/kids dead. For all we know all these inappropriate signs are simply the work of demrat operatives. Conservatives understand that killing Onada or his family would make a martyr of him. That is the last thing we want.
I live in NJ. Are freepers in other states seeing similar “demonize conservative” campaigns?
No one reads newspapers anymore, really. Sean Hannity and Bill O'reilly's ratings are off the charts. People rely more and more on the internet for their news or commentary.
So does this mean bringing Vice-President Cheney back?
What a picture!
