Since 2008 – Progress Through Politics

Monday Tubes ~ March 23, 2009

I started watching Morning Jughead and then suddenly decided to forgo news for the rest of the day. The first few minutes of discussion on the show centered in hush tones, on the terrible job President Obama did on 60 Minutes.  They wondered if our President is “punch drunk” because he laughed and made a couple of jokes on 60 minutes Sunday night. I heard a similar discussion on a YouTube post from VOTERSTHINKdotORG of a fox “news” show today.

I did not watch 60 minutes, so I do not have an opinion on the Presidents performance. I may post more tubes of these once YouTube is working again.

Anyway, I decided to listen to music for the rest of the day.

Monday March 23, 2009 in 100 seconds.

That is odd. The Dow has gone up a whole bunch, for over a week, and according to that tube, no one else seemed concerned about the President laughing and joking a bit on 60 minutes. Perhaps I should not have avoided the news after all.

Say, does President Obama ever get any credit for this latest surge in the stock market? I know they were blaming him something awful, not too long ago; you know, when it was plunging during the first 45 days of his Presidency. Hmmmmm.

I am certain that the President is doing just fine. I give him complete credit for getting out of Washington and the Eastern corridor superdome, and is now Taking it to the People. Yes, we fracking can!

On the other hand, this guy seems to be in waaaaay over his head.

What a freakshow. Perhaps he will do porno with the Octomom. Sorry, that was cruel. I am really kinda mean lately.

Here are a couple of twisted toontubes from AniBoom.

I like strange things.

On a more serious note, here is an interesting discussion of our current economic situation brought to you by the amazing folks at the Nation.

Nobel prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz explains what drove the US economy off a cliff and what steps need to be taken to rectify the situation during a Nation Institute panel discussion held to mark the release of a new book: “Meltdown: How Greed and Corruption Shattered Our Financial System and How We Can Recover” by Katrina vanden Heuvel and the editors of The Nation.

I am sick of the daily phony outrage. I have heard enough about how things cannot work. I am tired of idiot “news” commentators, who understand nothing. I only want to hear from people who have something constructive to say about how we solve the problems we are facing now.

Update Here is the 60 Minutes interview in three parts brought to you by missgriffin77. You decide.
