my very good friend, juliana sent this pic to me.
but let's not forget the ladies...here's barbara bush's gem of the week:
"And so many of the people in the arena here, you
know, were underprivileged anyway, so this--this (she
chuckles slightly) is working very well for them."
there's nothing quite like the rich reaching out to the poor, in times of great need to make them feel better about their lot.........
how about putting a brake on all the irresponsible tax cuts and actually do a decent job of looking after those that need it most? if this is what the largest and most technologically powerful economy in the world does for its own poor, then someone, somewhere, isn't doing a very good job, are they?
this isn't a time to point the finger and issue blame; it's about owning up to the responsibility of government to all it's inhabitants, and telling the bare-bones truth, just for once.
