Some Opinions are Worth Less Than Others

Evidently, the Czech prime minister, and current holder of the EU presidency, Mr Topolanek, does not agree with Obama’s economic recovery plans.

He attacked the US’s growing budget deficit and the “Buy America” campaign, saying “all of these steps, these combinations and permanency is the way to hell”.

At first glance, this may seem alarming.  Here is a notable, world leader condemming what is undoubtably a risky plan.  One might feel alarmed that perhaps those wiley Euopeans with their almighty “Euro” may know what they are talkning about.

That is, unless you look a little closer…

Mr Topolanek, whose government collapsed last night in a Czech parliament vote of no-confidence, said the United States was not taking “the right path”.

Hmm… here you go Mr. Topo-Living-in-a-Glass-House-lanek:

Can You Define the Word “Blame,” Please?

without comments

In another installment of “Things That Make you Say, ‘Duh'”, Bill Clinton denied holding any blame for the worst economic crisis to hit the country since the Great Depression.

“On Monday morning’s Today Show, Ann Curry’s interview with the former president – recorded over the weekend outside a Clinton Global Initiative event in Texas – addressed Clinton’s inclusion on TIME’s list of the “25 People to Blame” for the global economic collapse.”

“Given the sweep and severity of today’s global economic crisis, it would seem there’s plenty of blame to go around. But Bill Clinton doesn’t think any of it should fall on his shoulders.”

Yeah, I totally thought he was going to man up and apologize, too.  Man, I’m so disillusioned now.  :-/
