Wow is it hot.  Hot.  Did some great cycling anyway, and enjoyed some peaceful poolside reading too.  I'm going to miss summer :) and I have only one day left.  I guess going back to work doesn't mean going back to working 24x7!

Obama bingoSo did you watch President Obama?  Me, neither.  I knew what he was going to say - let's spend a bunch of federal money creating new jobs - and I knew the positioning - let's break the legislative logjam created by the Republicans.  It was a campaign speech.  I'm sure everyone declared Bingo in the first five minutes.

What we actually need is a President and government which will get out of the way, so businesses can create new jobs for real.

So far the returns are not positive.

I didn't watch the Republican debate last night either, did you?  It might have been slightly more interesting, but (yawn) I couldn't bring myself to do it.  I think it's interesting that while there is debate about the winner - Perry vs Romney - there is no debate that the CNN moderators lost.  Click through, I love that clip of Newt giving 'em hell.

Feels pretty accurate to me.  BTW I found I answered "agree" and "disagree" a lot, and "strongly" hardly at all.  YMMV!
