under the category of "it's blindingly obvious to me, why can't everyone else see it."

Subject is Barack Obama's near-universal appointments of Clinton era retreads: It's payback time. He bargained with the entrenched power-brokers of the Democrat party to get the nomination and he's paying the debt. It's the Chicago way. So much for "Hope-n-Change".

Subject is "global warming" becoming "climate change". It's a religious thing. It's human nature to seek a god, and one that is active. A god that does nothing doesn't scratch the itch in people's souls. Hence when one sets up Gai as "god" it's natural to anthropomorphize the earth and the environment. There has to be something active going on and because global warming isn't warming well it obvious becomes climate change. Read "State of Fear" for further exploration of this particular phenomena.

Regarding the economy and bailouts I'll simply point to H.L Mencken: “For every problem there is a solution which is simple, clean and wrong.” For extra credit investigate the history of success of Keynesian economics, if you can find it.
