LIke a Dog

It was a riled up president who hit the campaign trail in Milwaukee Monday. With his southern style stump accent fully engaged, Barack bragged about ending taxpayer bailouts for Washington - until he caught himself and corrected - bailouts for Wall Street. Freud is said to have said there are no mistakes. 

More telling, Obama offered an aside that spoke to his diminished state and captured the mood of a president and party under assault.

An end to bailouts for Washington is sorely needed, but, alas, the president is proposing yet another stimulus for Democrats' jobs - this time, one for $50 billion, on the heals of one for $26 billion last month.

“They talk about me like a dog,” Obama said with a chuckle of his political opponents. “That’s not in my prepared remarks but it’s true.”
