    There were those government health officials who shut down the little girl's lemonade stand because she didn't have a business license.

    And then there was that firefighter promotion exam that everybody, including ALL the African Americans, agreed was in no way discriminatory or racist but was thrown out because no African Americans scored high enough on it to merit promotion.

    And the news blurb that President Obama helicoptered eight miles to deliver a speech on clean energy.

    And Harry Reid saying that he can't understand how anybody of Hispanic Heritage could be a Republican.

    Or Robert Gibbs saying that those who criticize President Obama and/or the administration should be drug tested.

    This thread is targeted at those quirks and foibles of those who govern and government in the news that don't really merit a whole thread, but do make a person go "Hmmmmm."

    George Bush announces the start of war on Iraq. "My fellow citizens. At this hour, American and coalition forces are in the early stages of military operations to disarm Iraq, to free its people and to defend the world from grave danger."

    So that one incident has consumed your entire life, thoughts, and ability to think Del? Surely not.

    But perhaps you missed the thread title?:

    Things Our Fearless Leaders Have Done or Said Recently that Make You Go "Hmmmmm"

    You've got the right idea, but I don't want to dredge up a bunch of old issues that have already been hashed out on dozens of threads.

    surely not indeed, but it is the biggest load of crap i've heard in the past 10 or so years, which at my age qualifies as recent.

    sorry if that's not what your looking for.

    Understood.

    But I would like to keep it pretty current if we could.

    There are no leaders.
    They're all mis-leaders.

    And I would also like this to be a very ecumenical thread open to perplexities regardless of ideology, political party etc.

    Here's one that definitely made me go Hmmmm:
