A year ago Obama told Pastor Rick Warren that he wasn’t sure at what point a baby gets human rights.
It was above above his paygrade:

Not any more.
He suddenly figured it out right after he was elected.

Is this Janeane Garofalo’s idea of being open-minded, pluralistic and enlightened?

Quote Of The Day – Janeane Garofalo
February 27, 2009, by Bob Parks

The reason a person is a conservative republican is because something is wrong with them. Again, that’s science – that’s neuroscience. You cannot be well adjusted, open-minded, pluralistic, enlightened and be a republican. It’s counter-intuitive. And they revel in their anti-intellectualism. They revel in their cruelty.

I don’t know if you heard me talking to Jenny a while ago, but I was saying that first you have to be an asshole and then comes the conservatism. You gotta be a dick to cleave onto their ideology.
— Janeane Garofalo, enviro-celeb blog Ecorazzi, 2/12/09

WASHINGTON (AP) — The administration insists it isn’t so, but some private economists are wondering if the Obama administration has brought “Rosy Scenario” back to town.

In unveiling his budget, President Barack Obama pledged to bring “honesty and fairness” back to the budget process by getting rid of the gimmicks past administrations had used to hide the real costs of government programs and proposed tax cuts.

But many economists who examined the economic assumptions that undergird the spending plan believe that Obama may have resorted to one of the oldest gimmicks around – relying on overly optimistic economic assumptions to make it look like you are dealing with soaring budget deficits when in reality you are only closing the gap on paper.

Obama sets Aug. 2010 as Iraq end date

Officials: Obama sets Aug. 2010 as Iraq end date
February 27, 2009, by BEN FELLER

WASHINGTON (AP) — A “substantial” number of the roughly 100,000 U.S. combat troops to be pulled out of Iraq by Aug. 31, 2010, will remain in the war zone through at least the end of this year to ensure national elections there go smoothly, senior Obama administration officials say.

That pacing suggests that although Obama’s promised withdrawal will start soon, it will be backloaded, with larger numbers of troops returning later in the 18-month time frame.

Raise gas tax, charge drivers by the mile

Panel: Raise gas tax, charge drivers by the mile
February 27, 2009 by JOAN LOWY

WASHINGTON (AP) — Raise federal gasoline taxes to help pay for road projects?

Not during a recession, Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood has said.

Then how about moving toward a system that finances highway construction by charging motorists by the mile?

While the Obama-led Democrats control the future of the United States of America, the grassroots on the Internet are in the process of turning in “enemies of Obama”, including the parents of children who are Obama supporters. Obama-supporting children have actually posted their parents’ names and addresses on the Obama Forum.

The Obamaforum.com instructs people to “Report Anti-Obama Sentiment By Your Coworkers and Peers” and more.
