Read all About it: Government Officials Discover That Governing is...Hard.

Well, at least we're getting some truth out of Washington for a change. My usual informants on conservative talk radio have today informed me, your humble crusader for constitutional justice, that the Obama administration and its cronies are for lack of a better term, giving up.

Don't believe me? Consider these words from DHS Secretary Janite Napolitano, via ABC News:

"The notion that you’re going to somehow seal the border and only at that point will you discuss immigration reform – that is not an answer to the problem,” she said. “The border is as secure now as it’s ever been, but we know we can always do more and that will always be the case,” she said. “It’s a big border. It is 1,960 miles across that southwest border. It’s some of the roughest toughest geographical terrain in the world across that border… You’re never going to totally seal the border."

Ummm...Madame Secretary, we're not asking you to SEAL anything. We want the border SECURE. You know, you're the head of the Department of Homeland SECURITY, so a little bit of that on the border with ol' Meh-he-co would go a long way toward reestablishing your long since lost credibility. Though I doubt you'll do so, considering that, as a government official, your common sense has long since gone bye-bye. After all, we still remember your asinine comment about the system "working" in the aftermath of the Underwear Bomber incident.

Or, how about this little gem from Vice President Joe "Bite Me" Biden on June 24th, via CBS News:

Vice President Joe Biden gave a stark assessment of the economy today, telling an audience of supporters, "there's no possibility to restore 8 million jobs lost in the Great Recession."

No possibility? Really? What about the trillion dollars us taxpayers forked over for all of those shovel-ready projects? Wasn't that supposed to CREATE 8 million jobs? Apparently not, since the best you can do is "create or save" jobs in mythical districts and shove money down the throats of car companies and states that didn't want the funds in the first place. Great job there, Skippy.

Add on top of this Obama pushing a so-called "recovery summer" in which a whopping 260 jobs per state (according to Rush Limbaugh) were created this month. Great. A whole 260 jobs. Now I can go out and get the extra income I need to pay off my credit cards....NOT! Obama, I've said it before and I'll say it again, you suck as president and I can't wait until you and your cronies are out in November.
