maggie haberman of 'politico' reports that nyc mayor michael bloomberg has declared that the failure of the super congress (they missed their deadline) is a failure for barack.
i think he's right.
i am glad the super congress failed.
i do not endorse gutting the safety net; however, it was barack's goal and his super congress failed. so that is on him. as bloomberg notes, he failed to provide leadership and that's true as well.
barack has lots of ideas but that's really all.
i think he may be the 1st stoner president, in fact.
i have no idea whether or not he's smoking pot. but he certainly acts like some 1 who is. always talking big about how he's going to do this or that and then being tired out just from the talk. and some times, it's like he doesn't even remember what he was saying, as though he's lost in a pot induced haze.
