"When I was just a little boy of 17"

Thursday, October 09, 2014

The most consequential president of my lifetime...yes, I've said it.

Even K-thug's come around.

But now the shoe is on the other foot: Obama faces trash talk left, right and center – literally – and doesn’t deserve it. Despite bitter opposition, despite having come close to self-inflicted disaster, Obama has emerged as one of the most consequential and, yes, successful presidents in American history. His health reform is imperfect but still a huge step forward – and it’s working better than anyone expected. Financial reform fell far short of what should have happened, but it’s much more effective than you’d think. Economic management has been half-crippled by Republican obstruction, but has nonetheless been much better than in other advanced countries. And environmental policy is starting to look like it could be a major legacy…

There's always Kock Industries to fall back on

This humble blog would be remiss if it did not highlight a rare mention of Mt. Horeb in the news, lush home of my ancestors.

"Only Nemesis remains, stronger than ever."

In the words of the late, lamented Doghouse Riley, I heart Charles P. Pierce.

Of course.

Final word has to go to Jeter: “I know that there’s a lot of people that have much more talent than I do, throughout the course of my career, not just now. I can honestly say I don’t think anyone played harder. I don’t. Maybe just as hard, but I don’t think anyone had more of an effort. Every single day I went out there and tried to have respect for the game, play as hard as I possibly could. I did it here in New York, which I think is much more difficult to do. I’m happy for that.”

Number 2.  Derek Jeter.  Number 2.



Even more so when stripped down like this.

The final curtain

If noted Jeter-hater, Paul Campos, is becoming a fanboy, then I don't know what to say.  I do predict that there will be many bro-tears over the next 10 days or so.

A reminder, once again, of the bullet the American people (and the rest of the world, for that matter) dodged in 2008.
