Obama more ambitious than God

Tuesday, March 3rd, 2009 - 7:03 pm PST

In his first days in office, President Obama announced plans to end the Iraq War, close Guantanamo Bay, and solve the US financial crisis.  Each intervening week has seen Obama  lay out ever more ambitious plans including aid for struggling homeowners, Wall Street reform, a complete overhaul the US tax code, massive improvements in public education, complete energy independence, reduction in crime, a balanced the budget in two years, full payment of the national debt, elimination of all nuclear weapons, feeding the world’s poor, ending all  terrorism and religious strife, curing cancer,  and colonizing the sun.  Obama has said that when all this is accomplished, he will allow himself a long weekend to relax “and turn my attention to some ideas I have about a Grand Unification Theory.”
