What's In My Hard Drive

Just a taste of the glory that will be tonight:

"We are continuing to closely monitor the emerging cases of the H1N1 flu virus throughout the United States. As I said this morning, this is obviously a very serious situation, and every American should know that their entire government is taking the utmost precautions and preparations. ...

"This budget builds on the steps we’ve taken over the last one hundred days to move this economy from recession to recovery and ultimately to prosperity. We began by passing a Recovery Act that has already saved or created over 150,000 jobs and provided a tax cut to 95% of all working families. We passed a law to provide and protect health insurance for eleven million American children whose parents work full-time. And we launched a housing plan that has already contributed to a spike in the number of homeowners who are refinancing their mortgages, which is the equivalent of another tax cut. ...

"But even as we clear away the wreckage of this recession, I have also said that we cannot go back to an economy that is built on a pile of sand – on inflated home prices and maxed-out credit cards; on overleveraged banks and outdated regulations that allowed the recklessness of a few to threaten the prosperity of us all. ...

"We must lay a New Foundation for growth – a foundation that will strengthen our economy and help us compete in the 21st century. And that’s exactly what this budget begins to do. It contains new investments in education that will equip our workers with the right skills and training; new investments in renewable energy that will create millions of jobs and new industries; new investments in health care that will cut costs for families and businesses; and new savings that will bring down our deficit. ...

"So we are off to a good start. But it is just a start. I am proud of what we have achieved, but I am not content. I am pleased with our progress, but I am not satisfied. Millions of Americans are still without jobs and homes, and more will be lost before this recession is over. Credit is still not flowing nearly as freely as it should. Countless families and communities touched by our auto industry still face tough times ahead. Our projected long-term deficits are still too high. Government is still not as efficient as it should be. We still confront threats ranging from terrorism to nuclear proliferation to pandemic flu. And all of this means you can expect an unrelenting, unyielding effort from this administration to strengthen our prosperity and our security – in the second hundred days, and the third hundred days, and all the days after. ...

"So we have plenty of work left to do. It is work that will take time. It will take effort. But the United States of America will see a better day. We will rebuild a stronger nation. And we will endure as a beacon for all those weary travelers beyond our shores who still dream that this is a place where all is possible."


  1. TOTUS,

    You will really wow them with that material! Of course the economy is still going to hell, Pakistan is going to hell which will make what we are doing in Afghanistan meaningless. Just look at the what BO has done to make sure the CIA is aggressively protecting us.

    John's Space

  2. Totus, you lost me at "hello". Wow, I knew it was gonna be bad but you sure are loaded with a lot of C-rap tonight. You'll short circuit for sure.

    I'm worried about you.

  3. TOTUS:
    That'll have them fainting in the aisles.

    I got a little nervous where his POTUSness expresses extreme divine displeasure over the way the government's takeover is proceeding, and then says, "Government is still not as efficient as it should be..."

    TOTUS, on what planet did you find this clown?

  4. [Sarcasm button ON] Thanks for sharing, TOTUS. [S.B. OFF].

  5. Totus the big guy needs you to answer a reporters questions. You left him hanging he had to write down the question. You know the Big Guy can't adlib
    Help Totus help there is trouble amiss

  6. TOTUS, it must hurt to help the Big O obscure the truth. Did he really give "a tax cut to 95% of all working families?" Nope! He's letting Bush's tax cuts EXPIRE!

    Like it or not, his plans make it HARDER for America to shine its "beacon of light;" he's keeping us too broke!

    And I don't believe he really honors the military. He NEEDS them to watch his back, but he'll screw their budgets and ruin all they've accomplished in Iraq and Afghanistan, by putting politics above military needs.

  7. Wow ... "maxed-out credit cards". Brilliant. Where do you come up with this stuff? Speaking about reaching out to the common man. This just connects.

    And overall I feel inspired. Of course I don't need that to waste time spewing on the 'net 12 hours a day, but it does give New Meaning to my life. That and dark chocolate M&M's. And those new jalapeño cheetos are really good too. You know, like some je ne sais quoi has entered the junk food community, that has sort of floundered since invention of the Twinkie.

    Which of course segues into my latest rant. How come no effete French phrases in your otherwise sparkling prose? Because you can't handle the frog accent marks? Like cinéma vérité? Or raison d'être? And façade has that cute little curlicue hanging off the "c".

    So if you want Big Guy to show he is a Heavy Hitter in the Big Leagues, we need you to step it up to the next level, and show you can break through to the next level -- past ASCII 127. To the accents, umlauts, thorns (Iceland), and all the other weird stuff that foreign keyboards have.

  8. So, he has hit his stride... I don't know, I can't stand to watch or listen to the weeble.
    I take it it went SWELL; no outlandish pauses nor flubs. Good job. A rounding applause for
    you (and you only). I take it we're off the Air
    Force One fiasco, as I understand no one wants to truly investigate (as in school records and
    birth certificates, what the hell, let bygones be bygones). And isn't it the time to MOVE ON
    anyway? What's past is past, unless investigating the Bush administration, which needs to be exorcised in any way, and upside down that is areodynamically possible.. Big O certainly makes it clear that
    he should NOT and I have to make this clear, does not want to be associated with
    anything that happened that predates his birth nor anything that could be construed as an event that happened when he was young,
    of bad politics, bad associations, bad America
    for that matter that predates his very existance, especially when we are on the brink of
    of good things to come.

    Just remember "folks" (a favorite word of the Big O), weebles wobble, but they do not fall.

  9. "Weary travelers" or Fellow Travelers?

  10. betsy:
    I guess that means soylent green for anybody born before 1962. Get's rid of that nasty Social Security problem, too.

  11. Ermmm, TOTUS, I don't want to correct you or anything, but BO meant to say 'there are still millions of Americans WITH homes and jobs', which is the real reason he's not 'content' or 'satisfied'

  12. oracle2world said: "How come no effete French phrases in your otherwise sparkling prose? Because you can't handle the frog accent marks?"

    If you recall, BG couldn't handle Austrian either, and it appears he only learned a couple of Spanish phrases for his trip to S.A., but not one word of Portuguese in case he went to Brazil.

    No, as far as I can recall, the partie gauche has not been able to handle anything well to date.

    Without having to go 'foreign' on him, many of us could demonstrate some of the easier punctuation for him: @%& *#!%$*& @^$%!@%$&*!
