….. here’s one thing I know and I just want to make sure that this is off the table. The Senate certainly shouldn’t try to jam anything through until Scott Brown is seated. People in Massachusetts spoke. He’s got to be part of that process.
~President Barack Obama 1/20/2010
On January 28, 2010 (eight days later), without Scott Brown seated, the Senate voted not only on the confirmation of a second term for Fed Chief Ben Bernanke, but on Raising the Debt Ceiling by $1.9 Trillion. While Brown’s vote would not have mattered on Bernanke, it most certainly would have on the debt ceiling.
But as anyone who watched the State of the Union address can attest, the more our President talks, the more he sounds like a ten-year old, who is also a pathological liar. And when talking to sixth graders, he still needs his telepromters. Not really surprising, when you consider he’s trying to talk up a grade or two.
For those of you wondering, I actually voted for this charismatic mental midget.
