Your laugh of the day:
Obama said he would attempt to convince his party’s left wing to take a less ideological approach to economic challenges.
“We’ve got to make sure that our party understands that, like it or not, we have to have a financial system that is healthy and functioning, so we can’t be demonizing every bank out there,” Obama said. “We’ve got to be the party of business, small business and large business, because they produce jobs.”
Just last week, The Washington Times led with an editorial titled “Obama’s demonization of banks“:
President Obama has decided to take on the banking industry with the most intrusive regulatory and tax package since the New Deal of the 1930s.
The Anchoress provides the most apt of words that best fit this President:
Nothing means anything, anymore. Words truly are “just words,” now, and in this Looking-Glass Administration, words mean exactly what Obama says they mean at any given moment. They will mean something else, in five minutes.
`I don’t know what you mean by “glory”,’ Alice said.
Humpty Dumpty smiled contemptuously. `Of course you don’t — till I tell you. I meant “there’s a nice knock-down argument for you!”‘
`But “glory” doesn’t mean “a nice knock-down argument”,’ Alice objected.
`When I use a word,’ Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, `it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less.’
`The question is,’ said Alice, `whether you can make words mean so many different things.’
`The question is,’ said Humpty Dumpty, `which is to be master — that’s all.’
Indeed. And speaking of indeed, InstaPundit provides yet another example of Obama’s Humpty Dumpty-ness.
