President Obama has promised to change the way the government does business, but in at least one respect he is taking a page from the Bush playbook, stocking his town hall Thursday with supporters whose soft — though far from planted — questions provided openings to discuss his preferred message of the day.

“Hope” that things would “change”?

Fooled ya!

Same as the old!

Stunning.

Blatantly cheating.

Another “stacked deck” exposed.

RANT: A failure of leadership — O on GM!

from The Wall Street Journal

President Barack Obama blamed leadership failures in Washington, D.C., and Detroit as a key factor in the auto industry’s decline, as he called on General Motors and Chrysler to come up with better restructuring plans.

In prepared remarks Monday, Obama said, “The pain being felt in places that rely on our auto industry is not the fault of our workers… And it is not the fault of all the families and communities that supported manufacturing plants throughout the generations… Rather, it is a failure of leadership.”

The remarks came as Obama moved to impose hard-nosed, sweeping restructuring measures on GM and Chrysler, including the ouster of GM’s Wagoner.

So the money that was put into GM for the American Taxpayer went down a rathole.

And, Obama is going to run GM?

Levine on ABC has a great rant I’m going to try and find it.

Isn’t anyone upset that Obama is now running GM? Doesn’t it remind anyone of Hitler’s fascism? And, what bout the budget and spending. You youngsters are being robbed blind. And, who do they think is going to buy all this debt? It’s trillions and trillions of dollars. We’ll be in debt forever!

ATTORNEY General Andrew Cuomo has alleged vast corruption in the massive taxpayer-guaranteed state pension fund, bringing criminal charges against political consultant Hank Morris and the fund’s former chief investment officer, David Loglisci.

The more important question is WHY do we have “public pensions”?
