In the spirit of contrition inspired by the BHO “apology tour” to Europe and South America for past US transgressions I am compelled to apologize for the transgressions of our generation against this years graduating class. I’m sorry we are leaving you the largest national debt in US history. I’m sorry that we are leaving you the worst economy in at least two generations with a terrible job market. I’m sorry that you will not have the quality of medical care we had. I’m sorry that you will likely pay much higher taxes then we did. I’m sorry that you will pay 3 to 5 times more for electric power then we did in a lame attempt to stem global warming. I’m sorry that you will be burdened by a larger, more intrusive government then we had. I’m sorry you will likely never receive a social security check like we do in spite of contributing all of your working life. But most of all, and most important, I’m sorry that you will not have the opportunity to succeed in the free market system that we enjoyed. Good luck. You’ll need it.
A segment of society feeling strongly about one issue or another overstates the position of those that disagree. An overused word du jour is hate. If you are against gay marriage you’re a gay hater if you did not vote for BHO you’re a race hater if you do not want to pay higher taxes you’re an America hater. I don’t believe pro-abortionists are infant haters or anti-school choice people are child haters or that politicians causing the national debt explosion are child haters they are all just badly miss-guided.

President Obama was extremely funny last night at the correspondence dinner. He roasted almost everyone in his administration plus Michelle and his two daughters. Once again he demonstrated that he has excellent writers and he has outstanding delivery skills. My favorite joke was referring to foul mouthed chief of staff Rahm Emanuel "This is a tough holiday for Rahm. He's not used to saying the word "day" after "mother"."

This morning GMA aired an interview with Bristol Palin (teenage daughter of Gov. Sarah Palin) who had a baby out-of-wedlock recently. Bristol is making a speaking tour promoting sexual abstinence to teenagers! Does anybody, except Bristol, think she is a good spokesperson for abstinence? Why would any teenager follow her advice? Classic “Do as I say, not as I did.” The height of naiveté.

Today the top story in the “lame stream media” was video of Obama and Biden ordering lunch at Ray’s hamburger joint near the white house and detailing exactly what they ordered and how much they paid and how much they tipped. I conclude there are no other more important stories. I guess this means the economy has recovered, the Taliban and Al Qaeda have surrendered, Iran and North Korea have abandoned their nuclear weapon activities and we succeeded in reversing global warming. Amazing accomplishments for an administration of only 100 days.
