    Woven into the new presidential seal rug adorning the Oval Office is a misattributed quotation, offering us a perfect metaphor for the Obama presidency. Jamie Stiehm reports in the Washington Post:

    "The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice." According media reports, this quote keeping Obama company on his wheat-colored carpet is from King.

    Except it's not a King quote. The words belong to a long-gone Bostonian champion of social progress. His roots in the republic ran so deep that his grandfather commanded the Minutemen at the Battle of Lexington.

    He wont burn the carpet and the wont sell it. It will be locked away as an embarrassment just like everything else about his past is locked up so no one can see it.

    Hardly. More and more people are coming to the realization that Obama is a horrible president as his policies crater the economy. The majority now oppose him.

    How 'smart' is the President, exactly? Just curious.
