quote of the moment

"As bad as George W Bush was, he revolutionized the presidency. He was the first president who only served the people that voted for him. He ran the country like a cable network; he only catered to his subscribers. Obama's main fault is not realizing that's kind of what people want. That whole trying-to-make-everybody-happy thing is done. People who voted for him want him to do what Bush did. And whoever's the next president will do what Bush did."

--Chris Rock

[he's right, but Obama wasn't the 1st in my lifetime ... Ronald Regan did the same thing.]
