Quote of the day

Mr Schiff's video blog below reminded me of an alleged 2005 quote by George Bush:
“Stop throwing the Constitution in my face. It’s just a goddamned piece of paper!”

George W. Bush
I wonder how many people are actually beginning to miss Dubya now that we have the hopeless Obama floundering around too in the blood of Afghani women and children? I suspect this number may rise quite quickly over the next couple of years:
“Sooner or later, every President makes you nostalgic for his predecessor.”

Calvin Trillin
In fact, Obama could break the record quite quickly for being the most hated US President of all time, as the US economy begins tipping up at the prow ready for a long slide down to the bottom of a worthless dollar and the evacuation of all its troops back to continental North America due to lack of funds.

Let's hope they don't do something really stupid first, before this happens, such as anything involving nuclear weaponry and the Middle East.

At least the Romans and the British had the decency to just go home, when their time came for the End of Empire; I fear their modern counterparts in Mordor-on-the-Potomac may prove a lot noisier as their own imperial project collapses under their feet.
