To close the Congressional Black Caucus' Annual Legislative Conference Saturday night, President Barack Obama took to the stage and gave a fiery speech about the kicking off of ones slippers and getting back to work. It was meant to demonstrate his commitment to his Jobs Bill (that he once reminded Congress to pass) and to kick someone in the pants. Was that someone ... the CBC, itself? You, fair reader at home or work reading this? Republican obstructionists? Democratic volunteers? The base? The chattering Liberal punditocracy? Labor Unions? Obnoxious people who don't think there's any difference between the political parties when one is clearly awful and the other one is a quasi Doomsday cult right now? (I obviously support the one that's just awful.) Well, whoever the president was accusing of being the Debbie Downer of Negative Nellies it surely wasn't Congresswoman Maxine Waters of California, who was all over the teevee yesterday saying she didn't know who the president was talking to but it damn sure wasn't her!
