Hopefully I will never use those three names together again. However, they all made headlines this morning, so here goes.
Let’s start with the ugly:
“Watching George W. Bush leave the presidency and take off on his helicopter “was like having a 10-ton anvil lifted from my shoulders,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Wednesday, describing her emotions and thoughts on Inauguration Day.
So now you have a chance to drop your approval rating even LOWER in the single digits. Awesome. Because 9% isn’t low enough. The rest of the article is exactly what I’d expect from her. New administration butt kissing all around. Here are some of the choice quotes. Caution: not for those with a weak stomach.
Obama “has an entrepreneurial way of thinking, a fresh way of thinking, a commitment to the environment, a push for green jobs and reversing global warming, and that will help California,” she said.
Side note: Can I have some of that global warming please? I haven’t seen this much snow on the ground in NC since 2000. And it’s not melting, either. The back yard this week:
Back to the article:
She was just a few feet away from Barack Obama when he took the oath of office, and Pelosi said she “thought about his mother, and how she raised him and shaped this extraordinary young man.”
Okay that’s all I can take. On to better things: Kennedy bailing on the Senate bid.
“I informed Gov. Paterson today that for personal reasons I am withdrawing my name from consideration for the United States Senate,” she said.
“Personal reasons”. Right. Like the fact that she’s horribly unqualified and has horrible early polling results? Who cares, really – she’s out.
Last but not least, it’s about time Palin stopped talking about the media and her clothes. Her hopes for the Obama presidency:
Another step on the path to economic recovery is to let Americans keep more of their income. Mr. Obama and Congress could make this happen with permanent tax cuts and by adhering to a path of fiscal discipline. When congressional appropriation trains run too hastily, they accumulate excess baggage, spending more taxpayer money. Leaving more money in American pockets through tax cuts and fiscal discipline stimulates the business-investment and job-creation climate — the climate for economic recovery.
Preach it, girl. It’s about time.
