Why did we decide to put these fools in charge?

It is interesting times we live in when a local auto dealer's radio commercial uses the Presidents name and the US Government to guarantee the auto warranty. Did anyone ever think it would come to this?

Look, I will concede to Bush haters that he did some funny stuff and made some mistakes. Nobody is perfect, we all do that. But to have a President's name invoked in an auto dealer commercial almost seems a bit comical and below the Office of the Presidency. I know it isn't Obama doing it but it is his decisions that feed the idea for the commercial.

And that is the most important thing. President Obama's decisions since he has taken office have been dreadful. Look at all the bad appointments and waffling decisions. Here is a quick list:

Appointing numerous tax cheats
Floating the idea of having war vet's personal insurance pay their medical for war related injuries
Releasing the so-called "torture" memos
Shaking hands with Hugo Chavez
Telling Turkey we are not a christian nation
Bowing to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia
Napolitano calling vets possible terrorists
Hillary's reset button
Saying that the US invented the automobile

The list could go on and on but I think I made my point. Why have as a nation decided to put these folks in charge? Seriously, this is getting embarrassing to watch. And what is even worse is how the media pushes how good of a job Obama is doing. I will just start calling him bumbling Obama.

Here is a funny video I found. I personally think it would be worse than this if the government was running the auto warranty department.

People who know, know I am a Bears fan

After the announcement of the Bears trading some draft picks and Orton to Denver for Cutler, I have finally ready a post from a source showing that, for the long haul, this deal is NOT A BAD ONE for the Bears.

Cutler, age 25, is a Pro Bowler... a statistical accomplishment that Orton would not make in Chicago... and can be again... and again... and again. For the NFC.

Let's look at what the NFC posted for Pro Bowl QBs in 2008 -
  • Arizona Cardinals QB Kurt Warner - ok. I think I would be in contention with the receiver corp to work with in AZ.
  • Drew Brees - yeah, the number of yards, etc., WTF?
  • Eli - I am a little sick and tired of hearing how "golden boy" this cat is in the grand scheme.
Now, the Bears NEED a receiver... a real number one... to provide Cutler with that specific threat to make sure that point are on the board. This will allow the defense to get aggressive and go for the extra interception or sack.

As a Bears fan, the next great thing would be to pull a trade for a Fitzgerald caliber receiver. That would be the end all of the be all to the greatest offensive season in recent (read 40+ years) of Bears history.

What are your thoughts on the trade? Next steps for the Bears?
