Pop that balloon!

I had to cheat just a little on my week-long break from blogging. Damn my wife's laptop and its wireless connection!

I caught a good bit of Barack and Michelle Obama's ooey-gooey interview with Baba Wawa tonight. There was one little statement from the Chosen One that stood out:

"I'm not a miracle worker."

That's pretty funny when you think about what he had to say earlier this year on the night that he locked up the Democrat nomination for president:

"...I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on earth...."

Have we changed our tune a bit?

Good Day to You, Sir

Now he can start to blame all his failures on Bush, declaring that he didn't know "it" was so bad.

Hey, it worked for Clinton in 1993: Oh, sorry middle class - you don't get that tax cut after all. I didn't know the budget shortfalls were so bad.

After all, so far Obama seems to be all about bringing back the Clinton presidency.
