Wednesday Morning Open Thread

Good morning.

That was some speech last night by President Obama. That was a President. He was very good — and set the right tone. Very impressive. We’ve got a real president now. And, we need a real president after the damage inflicted on us by the last one.

That was some speech last night by Governor Jindal. The exact opposite of Obama. He was awful. Unimpressive and uninspiring. And, using Katrina as an example to tout the GOP? That was sheer brilliance. I still didn’t hear one GOP idea besides cutting taxes. They’ve got no ideas and Bobby Jindal showed that to the world last night. Remember, Jindal has been billed as the GOP’s next great leader. The pundits have been salivating over his great prospects. But, let’s admit it: Sarah Palin has nothing to worry about from Jindal.

So, let’s get threading the news…


On October 27, 2010, Joe was one of five bloggers who interviewed President Obama. Joe is a DC-based political consultant with over twenty-five years of experience at both the state and federal level. Joe has managed political operations and legislative efforts for both candidates and issues-based organizations. For seven years, he was the Director of State Legislation at Handgun Control, Inc. He served as that organization's first Political Director during the 2000 cycle. Joe is a graduate of the University of Maine School of Law. In addition, he has a Masters in Public Administration from Lehigh University and received his B.A. from the University of New Hampshire. Joe also has a fun dog, Petey, a worthy successor to Boomer, who got Joe through eight years of Bush and Cheney. Joe likes to think he is a world class athlete having finished the 2005 Chicago Marathon in the time of 4:10. He has completed six other marathons as well -- and is still determined to break the four hour mark.
