Bloviating Zeppelin: Obama's First Hundred Days

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Obama's First Hundred Days


. . . have already begun.

They started under the heading of Blagojevich, and Chicago, and Rev. Jackson, and Pastors Wright and Pfleger and Rahm Emanuel and Joe the Plumber and Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi and William Ayers and Bernardette Dohrn and Antoin Rezko and Eric Holder and -- now --

Mexican Bill Richardson has decided:



WASHINGTON (AP) - New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson on Sunday announced that he was withdrawing his nomination to be President-elect Barack Obama's commerce secretary amid a grand jury investigation into how some of his political donors won a lucrative state contract.

You know: for an administration that has promised, time and again, to be the most ethical administration this nation has ever seen. . .

I'm thinking: not so much.

And guess what?

It ain't even January 20th, ladies and gentlemen.

Happy with your selection, eh?

I did something similar just now. Interesting how corrupt this transition has been so far.

What's the back story here? What gives? Does Richardson have a stained dress in his closet?

All: I made an error; it was CONGRESS that promised to be the most ethical under Pelosi. The president-elect has made no such statement of which I am aware.

Neo: you know, I don't want the president-elect to fail because I don't want this country to fail. But I have an idea on which path we shall be set.

TF: Yes!!

DB: here's the backstory:

"A federal grand jury is investigating how a California company that contributed to Richardson's political activities won a New Mexico transportation contract worth more than $1 million. Richardson said in a statement issued by the Obama transition office that the investigation could take weeks or months but expressed confidence it will show he and his administration acted properly.

"I have concluded that the ongoing investigation also would have forced an untenable delay in the confirmation process," Richardson said. "Given the gravity of the economic situation the nation is facing, I could not in good conscience ask the president-elect and his administration to delay for one day the important work that needs to be done."

Well, 4 years and 13 days from now and we can be rid of the messiah, if we make it that long.
