2009February10 9:17 AM Today’s Message to the Big O

Approximate Reading Time: 2 minutes

Yes, I’m at it again (and will be again and again…). I’ll only offer this disclaimer periodically. I gave the guy money. I voted for the guy. But his proof is in the pudding of the Presidency… He’s learning the hard side of Washington politics, and there’s no reason we citizens should let up on him. 200+ years of precedent make it so damn easy to do it the way it almost always has been done.

Look where it got us.

No man is so honest he can’t use a daily reminder to stay that way. So be that guy in Caesar’s chariot whispering in his ear as he rides in triumph into Washington, uh, Rome…

No doubt the usual suspects will find something to give me shit about. I’ll have at the Big O. You have at me… I can take it.

In the meantime, it won’t hurt if you give him your two cents also. Everyone should. If everyone in the country did, why that would be $6,000,000. I think the government goes through that about every 15 seconds, or something equally appalling.

Remember: 500 characters. If I can do it, you can.

Today’s O rant:

“You disappoint in significant ways. Allowing Mr. Geithner to prevail on phase 2 of the banking bailout is same old same old. I’m surprised there’s no provision for fruit baskets and discount coupons for body man services for bank executives. You promised real change in government. The bankers who enabled this mess deserve censure, if not divestiture and removal, if not outright prosecution. This isn’t real change, it’s Small Change: the name of the homeless newspaper here in Cambridge.”
