Who doesn't' like Gary Lewis' "Green Grass":
"Green grass 'round my window Young leaves that the wind blows
Yes, it's springtime, golden sunshine And we're glad, my little love and I
Now that summertime is nigh
Carefree kissin' couples Dream away all their troubles
'cause it's springtime, golden sunshine
While the bluebirds sing their magic song
We will love the summer long
All the winter we've been waitin' Girl and I anticipatin'
What we're gonna do with summer overdue
Now it's here, we're out together So the weatherman had better
Do his best to make a show
And bring the sunshine out to grow
the Green grass 'round my window
Young leaves that the wind blows
Yes, it's springtime, golden sunshine While the bluebirds sing their magic song
We will love the summer long We will love the summer long "
And what would summer be like without Paul McCartney singing lead on The Beatles' "Good day sunshine":
Summer is here. Of course, summer is always more fun when the Rangers are playing winning baseball!

I don't get it. What did BO accomplish in his career to inspire all of this devotion from someone in Montreal?

Remember the speeches about giving US companies "tax breaks" for taking their plants overseas?
Now, we read this about "Hope and Change":
"The U.S. government is pouring billions into General Motors in hopes of reviving the domestic economy, but when the automaker completes its restructuring plan, many of the company's new jobs will be filled by workers overseas. " (WashPost)
The UAW is not pleased:
"The complaints about GM's operations portend a potentially larger argument, a political dispute led in part by the United Auto Workers.
"The bottom line is GM would rather pay $2 an hour -- and it's a slippery slope downward," said Alan Reuther, the UAW's legislative director.
"If GM is going to be getting government assistance, they ought to be maintaining their manufacturing footprint in the U.S. rather than going off to China, Mexico and South Korea."
No kidding. The UAW should be furious.
First, candidate BO tells them that he is going to renegotiate NAFTA.
Second, candidate BO beats up everybody for jobs going overseas.
Now, we read that GM will move manufacturing operations overseas
How long can this fairy tale go on? Not much longer!
