Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children.
- President Dwight D. Eisenhower

Barack Hussein Obama

He will make mistakes. He will fail at some of his endeavors. He will fail and he will misstep in good faith.

Now, The man has four years to make me lose my good faith, but he has it now, and with the utter failure and downright malevolent misuse of the public will that was the George Walker Bush administration, I honestly believe that he would have to suffer a psychotic break and stab a grandmother in the street for me to lose faith in him.

Which is at both a sad commentary on the last eight years and a hopeful statement for the next four.

Malevolent misuse of the public. Indeed!

I think I'd even still love Bam even if he did stab a grannie. Because, really, don't we all wanna just do a little grannie stabbing every now and then?

OK, it's been a long day. Nevermind.
