White House Land of Make Believe: We're The Best Ever!

Thirty days in and they're bragging they're the best ever. Somehow they manage to overlook the tanking stock market and approval ratings.

One thing they are the best at: Being completely full of it.
"President Obama has accomplished more in 30 days than any president in modern history," a senior White House official said this morning in a background briefing for TV reporters.

Pointing to legislation on children's health insurance and the "Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act," and most especially the stimulus bill, the official compared President Obama favorably to Presidents Reagan, Clinton and Bush, pointing out that the previous presidents' major economic bills were all months away from becoming enacted into law at this point in their presidencies.

"He has a set of wins under his belt" as he comes to address a joint session of Congress this evening, the senior White House official said, contrasting the president with Bill Clinton, who at this point in his presidency had been dealing with the gays in the military controversy, with passage of Family Medical Leave as a legislative win.
The entire world is kicking sand in our faces and our economy has gone off the cliff since he's been elected, but let's all pretend how wonderful things are.

Obama is so great, tonight he's going to pretend to be Ronald Reagan.
