President Anti-Midas continues to make headlines

Excerpt from Bloomberg

The dollar's 41 percent drop against the euro during Bush's term writes the economic epitaph of an administration that set out to restore American preeminence. Instead, Bush heads to Japan next week for his final international summit with diminished leverage as Russian and Chinese influence grows.
41 percent! 41 percent! I'll never be able to afford new lederhosen if this continues.

Maybe, he'll make it 43 percent by the end of his term, just for self-referential irony.

Now these are crunchy numbers

Are you sure this is a good idea?

Paramilitary policemen on assault vehicles take part in an anti-terrorism drill in Jinan, Shandong province July 2, 2008. China will have nearly 100,000 commandos, police and members of the military on standby up to and during the Beijing Olympics to handle potential terrorist attacks, state media reported.

Assault vehicle?

Shocked, shocked, I tell you.

The Washington Post reports Obama received a “discount” interest rate on his home mortgage loan. “He locked in an interest rate of 5.625 percent on the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage, below the average for such loans at the time in Chicago.”
I did my own research, and guess what I found. Are you ready?

Fully half of the mortgages at the time were below average!!!!!!!!!!!!
Math much?

And not only that, all the mortgage rates were locked in within two weeks of a full moon, on a day with a "y" in the name.
