Of course it isn’t (yet) but the concern today more than ever is: what will we do until then?
Be well, ya’ll. Truly, I wish you all — every American especially — the very best today and in the coming year, so far off but so necessary to make the changes that we really need, compared to the destruction that lured so many into deep water, toward doom. Stop following the wrong voice, just turn away.

Obama’s Horrifyingly Bad Speech
– by Jennifer Rubin, Washington Post, August 08, 2011
He was a half hour late. His head turned from side to side as if he were attending a tennis match. He practically never looked in the camera, as if he were averting our gaze. And those were the strong parts of President Obama’s disastrous speech.
It was a bit like a slow-motion car crash. After a while, one stopped listening to the blather and simply watched the stock ticker go down and down. And down some more.
Obama had all weekend and the best he could come up with was a reiteration of his plea for a “balanced” approach to deficit control. That’s right. We have a tumbling stock market, over 9 percent unemployment and a flight to gold (some investment advisers say it will be at $2,500 per ounce by year’s end). All he can do is promise to raise taxes.
Now that’s not exactly right. He did trot our proposals for a one-year extension of the payroll tax cut and extension of unemployment benefits. And he promised to make his own proposal to the debt committee. That’s it. It is what he has been saying for what seems like forever. He has nothing new.
He did say one indisputably true thing: The downgrade was more a comment on our political dysfunction than on our ability to repay our debts. That is the dysfunction that he has presided over. That is the paralysis he perpetuated by insisting for months on tax increases. He was describing his own disastrous tenure as president.
This illuminated Obama’s predicament — devoid of ideas, bitter about political opposition and completely in over his head. If the election were held today, I bet he’d lose. By a lot.
I am not as confident as Rubin is, in that opinion of hers that if the election were held today, Obama would lose, because our biggest problem as a nation is just enough corruption and incompetence by some among the public that bad non-leaders, media celebrities and other posers are elected to political office, such that, too many expecting unicorn sandwiches on a bed of pots-o-free-gold manage to vote and elect such. They certainly are those responsible for electing Barack Obama.
I won’t write “I told you so” because everyone who was paying attention in the 2008 Presidential election did not vote for Obama. Those who did vote for him were either eager to ruin this nation or were out of their minds for whatever reason, or, perhaps, were both.
