Sigh... Yes, More POTUS Tweets [Updated]

    I am posting this out of a sense of obligation, but frankly, keeping up with the @BarackObama Twitter feed is getting a bit tedious (tweetious?)  Here are two tweets that came one after the other Monday evening:

First of all, no one is asking the President to "maximize profits."  I think we'd all the thrilled beyond words if we were simply less than a trillion dollars from breaking even, but the President's budgets aren't even close.  And second, "Your job [as President] is to figure out how everybody in the country has a fair shot."  I defy you to pull out your pocket Constitution, go to Article II, Section 1, and find anything that could even remotely be roughly paraphrased as "figure out how everybody in the country has a fair shot."  Somehow I doubt the Latin translation of this phrase will appear on any future government buildings or monuments; rather, it will die a quiet and ignominious death in the land of tweets - and so it should.

Update: The Obama campaign is fighting back!

Now they just need the Latin translation and a hunk of marble.
