Big Spender

Washington Post:

“Of the first $350 billion in rescue money provided by Congress, the Treasury has only $15 billion left, not enough to save a major financial institution if it were to collapse.”

Already? Wow.
I wonder where all that money went,  and I can’t also help but be incredulous that I don’t know.

A President to Speak With

So, Bush was the President you could drink a beer with, right? Check this out:

“The final question Hart asked was what each participant would tell Obama if he called to wish them a happy Thanksgiving. Their thoughts were predictable—keep your promises, etc.—but none of them argued with the premise, which is to say: They all could imagine speaking easily to their new president.”

Barack Obama is the President you can speak with.

That’s quite a bit better, isn’t it?
