February 9, 2009

It’s been a long three weeks since Obama’s triumphant coronation on the steps of the Capitol Building on that cold January day.  Yet, the shine surrounding the Chosen One has not come back to Earth according to two different polling agencies.  Gallup’s “adults” have the Beneficent One hovering around 67% for his handling of the “Spendulus” package: “President [...]
