Have you read much about the employment conditions there? What life is like there for oil workers and for citizens? There have been some great articles.

Why get excited about Obama going on Leno? Obama goes on Leno, you complain that he isn't doing his job. Obama does his job, you complain that he's a socialist.

He can't do anything right. So why do you even care what he does?

By that same logic, someone will always be unemployed and looking for work even if unemployment is 1% , so the President should never be allowed to smile.

Right, so why get excited about him going on Leno? At least then he isn't doing super secret socialism-y things.

It's from Homer's Iliad and the bible. It signifies penitence. I'm sorry this needs to be explained to you.

That was my point. Unless they're looking for a daily outrage fix, there's no issue here.

Yeah dude, totally. I mean ****, the guy should act like the world is coming to an end and share in everyone's misery. That'll sure present a real uplifting image for the masses!
