What the F*&k is going on here?

CBS? Et tu, Brute?

“Senator McCain’s first answer to this economic crisis was – get ready for it – a commission. That’s Washington-speak for ‘we’ll get back to you later.'”

“Folks, we don’t need a commission to spend a few years and a lot of taxpayer money to tell us what’s going on in our economy,” he continued. “We don’t need a commission to tell us gas prices are high or that you can’t pay your bills. We don’t need a commission to tell us you’re losing your jobs. We don’t need a commission to study this crisis, we need a President who will solve it – and that’s the kind of President I intend to be.”

Bah haaa haa haaa [gasp] baa haa haa haaa ….

Even NPR is getting in on the act.

So, now that he’s in the White House, Obama is less dismissive of commissions. He has created several of them. In creating the commission investigating the BP oil spill, he said, “The purpose of this commission is to consider both the root causes of the disaster and offer options on what safety and environmental precautions we need to take to prevent a similar disaster from happening again.”

In addition to the commission on BP and the one on the deficit, the White House has created a commission on America’s nuclear future and another to study the potential creation of a national museum of the American Latino.

It’s almost as if everything Campaign-Obama said was only so much bullshit.

    Which, you know, we tried to tell people, and were summarily branded as racists and reactionary knuckledraggers frightened of change.

    Sadly, “We TOLD you so!” just doesn’t have the satisfying ring one would have hoped.

    Just sort of a grim fatalism as we watch this train wreck unfold in slow motion.

    almost? What further prove do you need? If you’ve lost NPR, you’ve lost it all.

    Wait, “lost “NPR?” Get serious here.

    We still fully and unequivocally support our Beautiful Precious Lord and Master.

    Are you kidding? I’m getting that on a t-shirt for the 2012 election. Every time I hear a lament about him, I say it loudly and happily.
