As much as I admire and respect our President Barack Obama at not time have I considered him perfect. Having been president for only fifteen days I really think he’s doing a great job; well at least he is trying to do what he said he would do, despite the soothsayer Dick Cheney’s mystical predict of a terrorist attack in the US.

I am certain Cheney’s information today could not have more clear as the memo pre 9/11 George Bush repeatedly ignored entitled “Bin Laden Determined to Strike in the US”. As side from late night talk show monologues since when do we care what any vice president, especially an ex vice president has to say? It’s baffling to me.

Oh Sen. Tom Daschle, did you really think you could get away with saying you forgot to pay taxes? Hmmmm I am not certain how people have turned Tom Daschle’s issue into an Obama fault but ok. Ultimately, I truly admire President Obama’s transparency and humility in regard to this issue. “Look,” Obama said, “ultimately, I campaigned on changing Washington and bottom-up politics, and I don’t want to send a message to the American people that there are two sets of standards, one for powerful people and one for ordinary folks who are working every day and paying their taxes.” He added: “I screwed up.” You gotta love it!
