The Titanic of State... no reason to panic

Everything will be alright just as long as everyone stays in their suites and doesn’t worry about the iceberg straight ahead.  Our ship, he suggests, is unsinkable…

With the congressional elections fast approaching, President Barack Obama acknowledged Saturday that the hope and energy he stirred during his presidential campaign may have faded in the face of a grinding economic crisis. “We’re doing the grinding, sometimes frustrating work of actually delivering change. I know it can be discouraging,” Obama told a crowd of 10,000 at an energetic rally at Boston’s Hynes Convention Center.

Yes, Captain, all will be well if no one gets discouraged… And that grinding sound… that’s the ship being torn to shreds.
