The Post-Gracious President.Whenever he must make a difficult decision, Mr. Obama complains it's Bush's fault. Obama was never gracious - he especially liked to be rude to women (Hilary and Palin) and our closest allies (but even during the campaign he threw people under the bus left, right, and center. Graciousness was never a word you could link to Obama.
Here a post on NRO about an article my husband wrote with a colleague titled, "Smart Grid, Dumb Idea" that is in the current edition of National Review (the version on dead trees).
Obama putting $3.4B toward a 'smart' power grid. Few people realize that one of the things a "smart" grid does is control your home's thermostat. So if the power company decides you are using, say, too much heating energy, they will remotely lower your heat whether you want it lowered or not.
If it keeps my kids safe, I'm all for it. 'Little Buddy' GPS device keeps tabs on your kid. It's a device to keep in kids backpacks/lunch boxes. Personally, I want to embed one of those gps doggy chips under my kids' skin in order to keep track of them. I'll take it out once they've graduated from college.
