Obama: “I won” — So Play By My Rules

Sunday, February 8, 2009

It’s only three weeks into Barack Obama’s Presidency and “Mr Cool” is loosing it big time. The swaggering confidence that he showed through the campaign has now been replaced with flashes of anger. Obama’s speeches are now filled with threats and warnings, his message of “Hope” has been replaced with one of “Fear”.

"The One" tries to come in through the White House Window

Then there’s the “Change” mantra that got him elected. The “Yes We Can” man has brought a lot of change — mostly cabinet nominees who were thrown under the White House bus before they could get confirmed.

Governor Bill Richardson out for Commerce secretary. Tom Daschle withdraws from Health and Human Services due to tax problems. Retired Marine Gen. Anthony Zinni was to be U.S. ambassador to Iraq — the Obama administration abruptly withdrew that appointment without explanation last Tuesday.

Nancy Killefer, who was to be appointed Obama’s “performance czar,” withdrew after it was revealed that she didn’t pay taxes on domestic help. Secretary of Labor nominee, Hilda Solis’ confirmation hearing has been postponed because her husband has a tax lien. But Timothy Geitner who also had a tax problem was given a pass as Treasury secretary, because he will run the IRS. Makes sense, right?

The St. Petersburg Times has the “Obameter”, which is keeping track of the 500 promises that Barack Obama made during the campaign.

Then there is the fabulous Porkulus bill. ‘‘The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009’’ that Obama, Pelosi and Reid have been throwing tantrums over, because the Republicans are fighting this crap sandwich as best as they can.

Obama keeps saying “I won”, despite the fact that Rasmussen Reports show that 37% favor the legislation, 43% are opposed, and 20% are not sure.

Mark Steyn quotes Susan Sarandon comparing Obama to Jesus and says, “Jesus took a handful of loaves and two fish and fed 5,000 people. Barack wants to take a trillion pieces of pork and feed it to a handful of Democratic Party interest groups.”

“The Stimulus”


In order for this pile of dung to get the 60 votes needed for cloture, three Republican Senators sold out to Harry Reid. They are Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, Sen. Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania and Sen. Olympia Snowe, also of Maine.

Here are their Washington telephone numbers call them and let them know how you feel:

Susan Collins (202) 224-2523

Arlen Specter (202) 224-4254

Olympia Snowe (202) 224-5344

The nation elected Barack Obama based on a campaign slogan, “The Change You Have Been Waiting For”. In reality it will be the albatross we don’t need.

    He also looks like he aged overnight. Just like Clinton did.

    The $TRILLION HOGFEST H.R.1 is astounding,we have 2 in college and despair that in less than 30 days the Obama admin condemns them to FED TAX ENSLAVEMENT for NO JOBS(except GOVT jobs),NO MORTGAGE SOLUTION for soon to be foreclosed CREDIT WORTHY folk,but instead feeds the politicans special interest pig trough. But even worse came on Fri seeing the SHOCKED,SHATTERED mother of Murdered USS COLE SeamanMcDaniels express her pain,being abandoned by our country as the Obama admin put justice on “hold” by suspending charges against the USS COLE attack’s mastermind currently detained in GITMO.The Obama admin’s current and proposed GITMO actions seem helter skelter and devalue US CITIZEN military sons and daughters and all civilians.
