Shallow Michelle Malkin put in proper perspective exactly the problem facing America under the Obama admin- istration and I quote, "Today, Big Government isn't just back -- it's back with a vengeance, like some crazed horror-film slasher who you thought was definitively dispatched at the end of the original movie, only to turn up even crazier in the sequel." "Indeed, it's not even enough to call it Big Govern- ment any more -- call it Berserk Government instead.

One only has to look at the multitude of Czars he has appointed to undermine his Cabinet Secretaries. "Vision to America" reports, Obama blames "Last Eight Years" for rejection of his brand of change. Obama and the Democrats in Congress must real- ize they are to blame. They were given power 14 months ago on November 4, 2008 when they told us to vote for the Hope of Change. What we got instead was the Hoax of Chains. The chains of lost freedom, unemployment, reduced secu- rity and an increased national debt greater than the gross domestic product of the world. Obama gives himself a B+ grade for his first year in office. The American people however in Virginia, New Jersey and now Massachusetts have given him an "F".
