Welcome to Obamaville

A tent town for the homeless in Colorado has gained some notoriety for its welcome sign. The Obama villagers have claimed that mentioning the name of our esteemed president has increased their visibility, a good thing in their view. However, people outside the village prefer the town to have a smaller profile, and feel the town name misses the mark.

"This economic collapse happened on President Bush's watch!" said one commenter, which is as off base as most anything coming out of the left.

Claiming President Bush was responsible for the market collapse after his repeated petitions to Congress to tighten controls on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac is as off base as the claim that President Bush fell down in his efforts to protect America because the 9/11 attacks occurred in the first few months of his presidency. Though frequently raised by the left, this clunker of a claim ignores the repeated attacks on our embassies, military and citizens that occured during President Clinton's tenure in office, none of which did he respond to in a substanative way.

Perhaps they would have a point about renaming tent town if the name were changed to Dodd City or Frankfurt, but that aint gonna happen from the left side of the world, so we are stuck with Obamaville.

That suits me just fine.
