President Obama is doing a great job  In high school, we are taught to save the topic sentence until the end of the first paragraph, but fuck that. My topic sentence is first and foremost, and I am going to say it again, President Obama is doing a great job 

8% of the American workforce is jobless right now. Not Mr. O’s fault. He inherited a clusterfuckery of a financial crisis from that other guy (why bother saying the name? Might as well call upon “Candyman” or “Beetlejuice” in terms of them being useful political figures) and has made colossal efforts to move the nation in the right direction. Fought to pass the stimulus. Just like he said he would. Check.

Laying down definitive plans for pulling the troops out of Iraq, and returning the focus of diplomatic relations to Afghanistan. Just like he said he would. Check.

So he’s doing very well for the 1st 50 days of a seriously difficult Presidency. Those who say otherwise, what have you been doing with yourself for the last 50 days? Check.

PS. On an economic side note, why the fuck isn’t Bernie Madoff being taken for everything he owns?!? Him and his wife, who as his book keeper, had to know what he was doing. Somebody needs to kick his ass inside and out. With steel toed boots. Topped with lazers. Liquidate his assets (EVERYTHING) and divide them amongst the people whose lives he ruined. There’s a good start.
