Quote of the day

Speaking at a fundraiser in San Francisco, President Obama said, "Let’s face it: This has been the toughest year and a half since any year and a half since the 1930s." As others have pointed out, the period from the ’30s till now includes Pearl Harbor, World War II, the Cold War, the Korean War, the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Vietnam War, race riots, Watergate, "stagflation," the Iran hostage crisis, 9/11, and much else. Certainly the current period has its challenges, but so have other periods, in fact most of them. If Obama keeps feeling sorry for himself, his next stage will be getting bitter, then clinging to guns and religion.
