What the President wrote in the Washington Post today in regards to the slow moving passage of his pork-engourged non-stimulus bill should be a wake up call to all the sheeple still following after their messiah. He was suppose to be “hope”, but all we hear are dire warnings that make President Bush’s warnings about Muslim Extremists seem to be party invitations. Today’s rant was full of bullying words, egotism and fear-mongering. Here are excerpts of what our fearless leader had to say:
“By now, it’s clear to everyone that we have inherited an economic crisis as deep and dire as any since the days of the Great Depression…What Americans expect from Washington is action that matches the urgency they feel in their daily lives — action that’s swift, bold and wise enough for us to climb out of this crisis…This plan is more than a prescription for short-term spending — it’s a strategy for America’s long-term growth and opportunity in areas such as renewable energy, health care and education. And it’s a strategy that will be implemented with unprecedented transparency and accountability, so Americans know where their tax dollars are going and how they are being spent…In recent days, there have been misguided criticisms of this plan that echo the failed theories that helped lead us into this crisis — the notion that tax cuts alone will solve all our problems; that we can meet our enormous tests with half-steps and piecemeal measures; that we can ignore fundamental challenges such as energy independence and the high cost of health care and still expect our economy and our country to thrive….I reject these theories, and so did the American people when they went to the polls in November and voted resoundingly for change…If nothing is done, this recession might linger for years …. our nation will sink deeper into a crisis that, at some point, we may not be able to reverse.”
This really says it all without any need of my irreverent commentary…it’s only been two weeks!
