Oh yes. Obama is off to a good start. Let's see: Under the guise of "economic stimulus," Obama promptly raided the Treasury and doled it out to his constituencies, screwing current and future generations. What else? Oh here's a goodie: Obama last fall repeatedly promised to end the practice of special interest earmarks. But instead he decided to sign an appropriations bill with more than 8,000 earmarks, including $2 billion for House Appropriations Chairman David Obey's lobbyist son's projects, $3.7 billion for contracts to Sen. Diane Feinstein's husband's company, and $4.19 billion for ACORN. As he signed the fraud he majestically proclaimed "I'm proud that we passed a recovery plan free of earmarks." Nice! More? Okay. Obama's $3.5 trillion 2010 budget includes projections for more than $9 trillion in near-term increases of national debt. But being fiscally responsible, Obama demanded budget cuts of $100 million. Wow! His foreign policy has been exciting. Who knew that America was so arrogant? Thanks for apologizing to the world on behalf of all of us Americans, many of whom are actually proud to be American and not ashamed. What I think he should do is fly his plane over New York city for a photo opportunity. Wait that might scare the bejeepers out of people who remember 9/11. Plus it might cost something like $300,000+. He's trying to save money. He wouldn't let his people do something that stupid. We're in the middle of a major recession. What I'm most excited about is the EPA telling the automakers what kind of cars they should build. Why it was only just a few days ago when Lisa Jackson, in an NPR interview about Obama's cap-and-tax policy, said, "The president has said, and I couldn't agree more, that what this country needs is one single national roadmap that tells automakers, who are trying to become solvent again, what kind of car it is that they need to be designing and building for the American people." Does the government really need to be telling private businesses what kind of cars to build? Who to hire? Who to fire? How much money they can pay? Really? But really everything will be OK because we get universal health care. You know, the care that Canadians and the British have yet when they need treatment like RIGHT NOW, they come across the border, instead of waiting months because that treatment is rationed. If universal care is what this country wants then fine, bring it. But I want to see every single government worker from the President down to the lowly staff schmuck sucking off that care as well. If they think government health care is so great then I want to see them sitting down at the government clinic. I really love watching him stumble when his teleprompter screws up. I now know how much fun you Bush haters had when W flubbed up on the podium.
