"Barack Obama is the smartest President"?

Have you heard it before? We have all heard how “dumb” George Bush is/was. I think it is about time to reveal that there is a big difference between book-smart and street-smart; Obama being the former and in no way the latter. The media being much of the former as well, has little to noContinue reading “"Barack Obama is the smartest President"?”

Bad Bank.. What happened to it?

I continue to be amazed that the “Bad Bank” concept that was the impetus for the 700billion dollar bailout has yet to be used. I looked for Pros and Cons of this concept.

The sublety of bias… Senator Gregg edition

It is sometimes tough to recognize bias. Especially, when it is the terms of “exclusion”. Simply, leaving out information that might change your view on the situation.

Daschle Out, Tax Reform In?

I think that Republicans need to take the high ground here. I know very little about Tom Daschle but he seems to be well respected, especially in Healthcare. The best course of action here is simply to express regret for the impact on a experienced public servant. Regret that the tax code as implemented andContinue reading “Daschle Out, Tax Reform In?”
