I am amazed by the continuing disdain for Sarah Palin shown by the media (two op-ed's and a lead story by the NYTimes in the past few days; two critical articles daily in the Huffington Post), and by the liberals who assume that if you support her you are either stupid, immoral, or "uninformed". Two perspectives:
This week's You Tube is of the April fly-by of Air Force 1 and an interceptor passing over the Goldman Sachs tower in lower Manhattan. Based on this week's announcement of a first quarter profit of $3.4 billion and projected average annual compensation of about $900,000 for the 29,000 employees, they must have been shoveling money out. This after $10 billion of TARP money, full compensation for bad bets with AIG, and large federal loan guarantees. Can you imagine the outrage if any of this happened under a Bush presidency ? Is Obama's team over matched, or in collusion?
Corrections: In last week's blog, I attributed "The Art of War" to Lao Tse. The military theory classic was actually written by Sun Tzu in about 600 B.C. Thanks to those who wrote me a note on the error, and my apologies to the author.
