Top Ten Differences Between Bush & Obama First 7 Months
From Juan Cole. :)


Top Ten Differences Between Bush & Obama First 7 Months

Obama, unlike Bush:

1. Has no plans to invade any new oil countries.
2. Knows who president of Pakistan is
3. Knows how to safely consume pretzels
4. Does not take orders from his veep
5. Not on vacation 40% of time
6. Clears away Bush's harm, rather than clearing brush on farm
7. Worried about 47 million uninsured, not about 47 thousand idle rich multi-millionaires
8. Not removing oversight from bankers on theory that financiers would never steal from own bank!
9. does not believe US menaced by Gog and Magog
10. Not ignoring threat of al-Qaeda

38. "Families is where our nation finds hope, where wings take dream."
And this one:

"People say, how can I help on this war against terror? How can I fight evil? You can do so by mentoring a child; by going into a shut-in's house and say I love you."

--Washington, D.C., Sept. 19, 2002

21. Was he on this thread, too??
Sorry about the confusion, I was on another thread, came back here.

I thought from posts above a different one was TSd here, named "morelike" (due to a subject line upthread).

Doh!
