Nemo me impune lacessit

No one provokes me with impunity


No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.

Article 1, Section 9, Constitution of the United States

If this is the law of the land...why in a republic (little r) and as republicans, do we allow mere POLITICIANS to the right to use a "title of office" for the rest of their lives as if it were de facto a patent of nobility. Because, as republicans, this should NOT be the case...just saying...

Obama Claims He Didn't Explain Policies Enough

Mr. Obama, in yet another of his interminable interviews, this time with Democratic operative, George Stephanoplous, who is presently masquerading on ABC as a "journalist", claimed that he just hasn't explained his policy initiatives well enough. This is from a president who in his first year in office has given (according to CBS News’s Mark Knoller) 158 interviews and 411 speeches in his first year.

So, what will Mr. Obama actually say in yet another series of interviews?
“The same thing that swept Scott Brown into office swept me into office,” said Obama. “People are angry and they’re frustrated, not just because of what’s happened in the last year or two years but what’s happened over the last eight years.”

Got it. People are so angry and frustrated at George W. Bush that they’re voting for Republicans. In Massachusetts. Boy, I can’t wait for that 159th interview..
Does he really think that Americans are THAT stupid? Or is this man that arrogant enough to believe what he says? Of course, there's a picture floating about showing his recent speech to a classroom full of 6th graders...where he uses a teleprompter! Really. As dumb as we're told that George Bush least he didn't need a teleprompter in a class room!

The real problem is, this administration has no clue just how much Americans are tired of his spendthrift ways. In a recent CNN poll, 56% of those polled said they wanted the unspent "stimulus package" funds to remain...unspent! That's a huge turn around from when the pork filled package was passed when 54% said that it would work. But then this is also an administration who's talking heads this morning said that the pork package had created from "thousands upon thousands of jobs saved", up to 2 million.
