Saturday Hodge Podge (Obomination Style)...

The Obamessiah will address the nation in a joint session of Congress on Feb. 24th.  But it won't be considered his first State of the Union address.  That won't be until next January.  I'm trying to remember if that's the case for every new President.  Not sure.

I'm curious about the State of The One's Administration Appointees.  It's much more interesting to follow.  He's certainly keeping pace with Bill "The Disappearing Cigar Act" Clinton.

I find it ironic that Mr. Hope is suddenly employing Fear is his motivation of choice now that he's in office.  The Wall Street Journal looks at the impact of the latest pork-filled "stimulus" package that just passed.  This chart looks at the annual deficit as a percentage of GDP

Given that GWB had to deal with the "dot com" bust, 9/11, two wars in Iraq & Afghanistan, and the bursting housing/mortgage bubble, his record on deficits is pretty good.  Add to it the fact that the unemployment rate (both the highest monthly rate, as well as the 8-year term average) is exactly the same as Clinton's (who didn't have to deal with those major issues during his administration).  But you won't hear that from the MSM.

Victor Davis Hanson looks at the impending Obama meltdown.

The San Francisco Examiner (as far left-wing as you can get) has a wake-up call for The One. (Hat-Tip to the Paragraph Farmer for this one.)

Kyle-Anne Shriver wonders if Murphy's Law is meeting Peter's Principle.

The "evil" former V.P. Dick Cheney warns the new administration of the likelihood of new attacks from Islamic terrorists.  But we all know it's just a scare tactic.  After all, the vast majority of Muslims are peaceful and moderate.  Kinda like THIS one in New York (just a little beheading in the family, that's all).

Finally, let's take a closer look at the new klutz in the White House (we all know the MSM was unmerciful when this kind of stuff occurred with Gerald Ford and GWB):

That was preceded by this clueless incident when he thought a window was a door:


Oh... and one more... yah gotta have some more Zo:
