I'll go back to house pictures tomorrow, people. Must clean before I take pictures of the house today.
In the meantime, let's talk about Obama. Last night, I gave him a B-. After some sleep, I might bump him up to a B.
The bumbling over health care reform has really killed him. We don't have a bill and nobody knows what's in the non-existent bill. These are serious problems. I would have liked for him to clearly state last night what the key parts of the bill were for him. The line-in-the-sand issues. I wanted him to say that we must have X number of people covered by health insurance by X date or that we need to bring down costs by X amount. He never did that.
His line that he would take proposals for reform from anybody didn't sound like he was looking for compromise. It sounded like he had no viable program of his own.
The bash-the-bankers thing was silly. He didn't mean it, and it was a diversion. Even the liberal tweeters were rolling their eyes over that stuff.
Jobs is a bipartisan issue, and I'm glad that he brought it up. However, his reform proposals sounded weak. There is no way that clean energy is going to create enough jobs to employ the 10-17% of the unemployed.
On the other hand, he did get a bit of his mojo back. He sounded determined. It will boost his rating for a little while.
