This is from "A New Leaf" with Walter Matthau and Elaine May.

You can't get it on DVD which is a crime.

UPDATE: Read what an average joe had to say.

Obama was opposed to the Iraq war, in which we sought to remove Saddam Hussein.

"A lot of this fuss is politics," Obama said from the White House East Room at his first news conference since March. "And if you look substantively at what we have done, we have done exactly what we said we would do. As a consequence, a guy who is a state sponsor of terrorist operations against the United States of America is pinned down and the noose is tightening around him."

That was him defending going after Quadaffy Duck.

I've been waiting for someone else to say something about this, and they haven't, so I thought I must have imagined he said it.

I just remembered to look it up.

Big difference:
Congress approved Iraq.
As you know Obama never asked about Libya.

"we have done exactly what we said we would do."
As if that makes it OK.
He seems to have gotten a pass.

If you voted for Obama in 2008 to prove you're not a racist,

vote against him in 2012 to prove you're not an idiot.

I feel positively prolific here.

I'm waiting for a shopping list and I was recalling my earlier post today.

I was thinking about the guy in the White House.
Then i thought about the TV show "The West Wing", that was extolling the virtues of a "liberal" democratic president.
What would a show like that featuring Obama be like?
Instead of passionate plotting to get this or that legislation through Congress, we would presumably see scene's where O is plotting to get on Oprah, meet a rapper, play a game of golf, meet Paul McCartney, kill the economy, and appoint czars, hobnob with foreign leaders to denigrate the U.S.
We'd see a scene where when asked what he wanted to do about a pending legislative agenda, he'd say, "Leave it to Nancy and Harry and I'll sign it.".

We'd see maneuvering to put his lack of leadership in the best possible light.

We'll never see it.

This used to be the greeting of Christians 2000 years ago.
The word for it was Maranatha.
It was probably code for "I'm a Christian."

Like drawing a fish in the sand with your toe.

But it's all about the Risen.
If indeed He is risen,
He knows something about death and resurrection,
that we need to know.

Fortuneately He's not keeping it to Himself.
"Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of [our] faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God."
What was the joy set before Him?
He had a throne before he came here.
He didn't have you.

Happy Easter.
