    Poor choice, or are they the Constitution will be amended? How else will we get “Change Hard with a Vengeance” and “Live Free or Change Hard”?

  2. Darren Pope says:

    Ah, more “CHANGE”. Egyptiansrecently decided they wanted “change”, too. Now that they have it they realized they didn’t know exactly what they meant by change. They got rid of Mubarak and got their “change”, but it didn’t go exactly as they envisioned it. Now many of them are saying they want Mubarak back. Obama promised “change” during the ’08 campaign. The problem was he didn’t detail what he meant by “change’> Now we’re finding out. It means inflating our nation’s debt until it sends the entire country crashing to the ground in a death spiral. The moral of this story: You should know what kind of “change” you’re getting before you demand it.

    I thought the better line on this week’s Wait, Wait was “Campaign slogan for Donald Trump: Richer than Romney, Whiter than Huckabee, Crazier than Bachmann”.
