Well, the scene is already set for an uplifting week of healing rhetoric and outreach to independents.
Democrats are having plenty of high-profile problems dealing with the simple question: Are you better off than you were four years ago?
Expectations are being managed.
What they thought was a rambling speech by a fading old-timer turned out to be the perfect metaphor for the presidents lack of leadership, perfectly suited to the age of memes.
Theres a blow-out end-of-summer sale at the Obama store.
The Raleigh News & Observer delivered less-than-welcome news to incoming DNC attendees today:
Better to look for yourself.
The “Debt Clock” is an approximation.
From the horse’s mouth:
Close-of-business last Friday - $16,015,769,788,215.80.
The National Debt: $16 Trillion Dollars Of Moral, Cultural And Political Decay

Wow! Well soon cross Sixteen Trillion Dollars in Federal Debt! S-i-x-t-e-e-n T-r-i-l-l-i-o-n D-o-l-l-a-r-s. Thats a lot of vote buying even for Washington. Is this ruin? Have we indentured our children into servitude? Solomon warned borrowers will be slaves to their lenders. Add $120 plus trillion in unfunded forthcoming liabilities and, well, were doomed.
It hit $16 trillion last Friday - see Post 2.
Hope and Chair
it’s a ‘everybody stop and hop out of your vehicle’ , run around it three times and boogie moment in the brewing..
