President Barack Obama is telling high school graduates in Michigan not to make excuses, and to take responsibility for failures as well as successes.

Obama to high school grads: 'Don't make excuses'

That is classic. Sure wish he would practice what he preaches

I am sure that both sides can agree to the message regardless of what our opinions on Obama are.

Obama blames Bush, Wall Street

Says economic woes caused by bad decisions


Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama yesterday blamed "irresponsible decisions" by the Bush administration and Wall Street for the country's economic woes as government officials said the budget deficit would soar to record heights next year.

It is always a great honor to have the POTUS come and speak at your establishment.

While he may not practice what he preach, he still is trying to instill the right thing onto the youth. Let's leave it at that. This shouldn't be an opportunity to slander...but, these days...
