Rhetoric vs Reality

The claim -- Vice President Joe Biden at the February 25th healthcare summit with Republicans:
I’m always reluctant after being here 37 years to tell people what the American people think. I think it requires a little bit of humility to be able to know what the American people think.
The truth -- see current polls, the vanishing confidence in the Administration's healthcare policies, elections in Massachusetts, Virginia and New Jersey, the rush to blame Republicans, the consensus for starting over, etc.

Well, to be honest, this is Joe Biden.

One could hardly call what he does to be "thinking".

LOL.

From David Copperfield, Mr. Dick speaks -- substitute "Obama" for "Doctor":

You know what a learned man, what a great man, the Doctor is. You know what honour he has always done me. Not proud in his wisdom. Humble, humble - condescending even to poor Dick, who is simple and knows nothing. I have sent his name up, on a scrap of paper, to the kite, along the string, when it has been in the sky, among the larks. The kite has been glad to receive it, sir, and the sky has been brighter with it.'


ROTFLMAO.
