Hats off to Yogi ...

As a New Yorker, it's a capital crime not to love Yogi Berra. As our hero would say, "deja vu all over again":


From the statement by President Bush on September 22, 2008 on the current economic crisis and the possible bailout: "Failure to act would have broad consequences far beyond Wall Street."

From Bush's speech explaining why he needed war authorization for Iraq, October 7, 2002: "Failure to act would embolden other tyrants, allow terrorists access to new weapons and new resources, and make blackmail a permanent feature of world events."

2008: "It would threaten small business owners and homeowners on Main Street."
2002: "He would be in a position to threaten America."


The Rude One has a few more.

When the Chimp says something has to be done right away, you know it can't be good.
