In yet another dose of wealth and class envy (and it’s Bush’s fault) from who we elected to be our “leader,” and still not coming out with his plan to address the debt ceiling debate, in an address to the nation tonight President Obama asked the American people to tell their congressmen what they want to do. Now how’s that for leadership?
The American people may have voted for divided government, but they didn’t vote for a dysfunctional government. So I’m asking you all to make your voice heard. If you want a balanced approach to reducing the deficit, let your Member of Congress know. If you believe we can solve this problem through compromise, send that message.
“We know what we have to do to reduce our deficits”
I guess that is why he doesn’t feel a need to tell us what he, as our “leader”, would do? That’s what ‘leading from behind’ is all about. He gets to vote present on everything. And does.
Balanced approach to a mugging: If you don’t turn over your wallet, I’m going to slit both your wrists. “Let’s compromise, how about only one wrist?”
And for an encore, the President accused congress for acting irresponsibly for not coming together on a solution to the problem. It’s like calling them chumps for believing in him and big government spending. It was, and is, his policies that got us to the ‘debt ceiling’ issue in the first place. Now he belittles congress for not stopping him.
Just goes to show you that there is no limit to the audacity of a community organizer.
