A day in the life of the President
For eight long years, we had to put up with a president that couldn't swing a golf club and watch his ball; who couldn't, like Jerry Ford, chew gum and walk at the same time; who couldn't speak English if his life depended on it; who didn't read books; who didn't read newspapers; who could barely get through his morning briefing report; who went to bed a 9:00 PM; who had no clue in the morning who the hell he was or where he was!

"In the past week, President Barack Obama spoke via video to Iranians and, separately, to viewers of a Latin music awards show, appeared on Jay Leno's 'Tonight Show' and on '60 Minutes,' held a prime-time news conference at which he called on several special-audience publications and wrote an opinion column that ran in newspapers around the world.
"He also arranged two events that bypassed the news media, an online 'town hall' and a volunteer door-knocking campaign across the nation to rouse support for his budget."
The difference between the Bush administration and the Obama administration is like moving from the 16th century to the 21st in one fell swoop!
Ain't it great?
We have a president with a brain: who's not only intelligent but also competent and energetic and caring. Did I mention intelligent? Brilliant, even?
