Hope everybody has a Happy New Year!
Here’s President Obama today on the so-called Fiscal Cliff…
And here is the Republican response…
Please don’t drink and drive… or ever vote for a Republican ever again.
The President offers his best wishes for the New Year, recorded on December 22nd before he left Washington:
Hello everybody. Tonight, as Americans across the country gather with family and friends, I want to wish everyone a happy and healthy New Year.
This is always a hopeful time, as we celebrate the end of one year and the beginning of another. And while 2009 was difficult for many Americans, we must also look back on this year with the knowledge that brighter days are ahead of us – that although our challenges are great, each of us has the courage and determination to rise up and meet them.
It is that spirit that has kept the American Dream alive for generations, and it is that spirit that will keep it alive for generations to come. Happy New Year, everybody.
I googled this just for you…
Here’s wishing you a happy and prosperous new decade. May it be all you want it to be and may all your wishes come true. (Unless you’re one of those hateful extremist conservative Republican types, because I really, really, really do not want to live in your world. Sorry.)
P.S. Please don’t be drinking and driving. It’s really your business if you want to splatter yourself all over the road, but me and mine will be out and about tonight. We’d really rather you not splatter us. Thanks.
Welcome to 2009. Are you still writing 2008 on your checks?
Are you still writing checks?
I have to admit, I’m feeling a lot better going into this year than I did going into the last one. (See: “Add Up the Damage.”) We will have a new President in just 19 days!
