Being an American means always having to say you're sorry

I posted a link to this column way back in 2004, but in light of President Obama's recent Muslim apology tour, it's as timely as ever: Why Arabs Don't Say Sorry, by Nonie Darwish. For someone who's supposed to be so tuned in to the Muslim world, the O seems as clueless as his predecessor, if not more so.

Save one for me!

Wow, that President Obama is really having an impact. From the NY Times:
Obama Promises Job Creation in Plan

WASHINGTON — President Obama said Monday that he expected his economic stimulus package to save or create an additional 600,000 jobs this summer — including 125,000 for teenagers — as the federal government spends billions to expand care at health centers, spruce up national parks, hire teachers and improve military facilities.

Six hundred thousand? Really? Why not six million? Or sixty million? What the hell, if you're going to make up a number - and "saved" job numbers are purely fictional - why not make up a big one. I'll give him credit, though. He still has the public bamboozled. We'll see how long that lasts once the hyperinflation kicks in.
