Well, this should liven up things in Martha’s Vineyard.

I’m sure Obama will be surprised when he hears this on
the news.

Patience. No definitive US response is possible until the NY Times provides an analysis proving that it’s all Bush’s fault, and President Obama finishes his vacation.

Wonder if Obama is somehow caught up in all this. He has been saying the government needed to change if they wanted our help.

Watch Obama turn his back on them.

WZ was a brilliant songwriter.

As a foot note, his “Excitable Boy” had Linda Ronstadt and Jennifer Warnes as background singers.

He said he didn’t want to sic any firepower until the election was over. That’s why he’s golfing as we speak.
