or maybe their heads are too big!!! heh!
No elaboration necessary, except to say (a) The One has always relied on surrogates to do his political dirty work lest his immaculate Hopenchange-y hands seem unclean, and (b) I think this is my very favorite Naked Emperor News clip ever.
Below that, for dessert, a brief meditation on the dangers of a private public option. Or is it public private?

Just today New York Times reports that Hassan Nemazzee, an Iranian-American businessman and sympathizer of Iranian regime who raised $500,000 for Obama campaign was arrested today. Here is an excerpt:
"A prominent Democratic party fund-raiser for Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton was arrested in Manhattan on Tuesday on charges that he lied about his assets to obtain a $74 million loan from Citibank, the United States Attorney’s office said.The fund-raiser, Hassan Nemazee, 59, had been a national finance chairman for Mrs. Clinton’s presidential c last August."Also, yesterday we learned that Obama was playing golf with his good buddy, Robert Wolf, president of UBS Investment bank. UBS is famous for it's banking secrecy laws, allowing people to squirrel money away in untraceable “numbered accounts.” Secret Swiss bank accounts have become a favorite way for wealthy people in the U.S. to dodge taxes!!! Obama spent five hours golfing with this guy who happens to be his early financial backer of Obama’s presidential campaign, raised $250,000 for him back in 2006, and in February was appointed by the president to the White House’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board!!
HOPE & CHANGE baby!!
UPDATE: More on Hassan Nemazee here.
All those over-promises, lies and exaggerations are having effect on Obama's poll number. He boxed himself in and there are too much promises that he can not run away from.
UPDATE: White House, Congress projects record deficits
Do you remember this? We would love to find out if Michelle is still think like this?

Well, according to Reuters article (no right wing news agency!) Obama to raise 10-year deficit to $9 trillion!
The Obama administration will raise its 10-year budget deficit projection to approximately $9 trillion from $7.108 trillion in a report next week, a senior administration official told Reuters on Friday.
The higher deficit figure, based on updated economic data, brings the White House budget office into line with outside estimates and gives further fuel to President Barack Obama's opponents, who say his spending plans are too expensive in light of budget shortfalls.
We are witnessing "Hope and Change" in action.

The U.S. is going to lend billions of dollars to Brazil’s state-owned oil company, Petrobras, to finance exploration of the huge offshore discovery in Brazil’s Tupi oil field in the Santos Basin near Rio de Janeiro.
Obama keeps insisting that we cut back on our use of fossil fuels. He and his allies in Congress have blocked exploration of American oil fields off both shores for decades, and Obama insists that we would only keep enabling our oil addiction if we started drilling off of our own coasts. Yet he has no trouble committing $2,000,000,000 of our money for Brazil to drill off its own coast.
Barack Obama uses this quote often when talking about ObamaCare:“Under the reform we’re proposing, if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan"
"In a campaign to dispel alleged myths about health reform, the White House has posted a “Reality Check” on its Web site. “You can keep your own insurance,” it declares. Obama’s promise is not just at odds with legislative proposals — it is also at odds with reality"So if he is knowingly saying these things, then is intentionally fooling American people, and if he really does not know the facts than he should not shove this bill down our throats ....He can wait a little, so we know exactly what we are getting.

Ryan Grin blogs on Huffington Post: Internal Memo Confirms Big Giveaways In White House Deal With Big Pharma
Greg Palast writes.
"What else went down in Obama's drug deal? To find out, I called C-SPAN to get a copy of the videotape of the meeting with the drug companies. I was surprised to find they didn't have such a tape despite the President's campaign promise, right there on CNN in January 2008, "These negotiations will be on C-SPAN."
This puzzled me. When Dick Cheney was caught having secret meetings with oil companies to discuss Bush's Energy Bill, we denounced the hugger-muggers as a case of foxes in the henhouse.
Cheney's secret meetings with lobbyists and industry bigshots were creepy and nasty and evil.
But the Obama crew's secret meetings with lobbyists and industry bigshots were, the President assures us, in the public interest.
We know Cheney's secret confabs were shady and corrupt because Cheney scowled out the side of his mouth. Obama grins in your face"
"He deceived the country by pursuing secret talks with the very lobbies who are the heart of disgraceful national health care situation. He entered into deals that were weighted heavily in their selfish interest rather than the national interest. In short, we have gotten from him the antithesis of what we were promised and expected -- in the substance and process of policy both. We have instead a conventionally minded politician overly respectful of the status quo and deferential to those who control and profit from it, A man with no apparent fixed convictions."
"A man with no apparent fixed convictions"!!! wowowowow. Finally! They see the real obama coming through in bits and peaces. Well, we knew about Obama convictions (which is all about him only) the moment we finished reading his first book. All they had to do to know Obama was to read our blog way before he became the candidate. And what do we think about similarities? thats not fair to Cheney, at least the guy had "fixed convictions" and you knew exactly what he was all about.

- American College of Surgeons to Obama: Stop accusing us of wanting to hack off people’s body parts.
- USA Today fact-checks Obama’s town-hall assertions.
- AARP has NOT endorsed Obama health-care plan but Obama insists that they did. Pathetic!
No wonder Obama's job approval rating is down to 47%!

“The Obama administration is refusing to quickly release government records on its ‘cash-for-clunkers’ rebate program that would substantiate — or undercut — White House claims of the program’s success, even as the president presses the Senate for a quick vote for $2 billion to boost car sales.”
