I will let his own words speak for themselves:
It’s “a sacrifice you may not have chose to make, but a sacrifice you are nevertheless called to make so that your children and all of our children can grow up in an America that still makes things, that still builds cars, that still strives for a better future"
I have some MAJOR issues with this...
#1: GM is in bankruptcy about 6 months later than it should have been because Obama steered Bush into bailing it out last year, continued the process in order to position the government and the auto union into the best scoring position to take it over and make it Government Motors...As Bush once said: "Mission Accomplished"
#2: We will all be making some serious sacrifices over the next 50 years to pay for all of these hairbrain ideas of his. What's next? Government control of McDonalds so they can dictate how many fat grams you can consume in a day?...Really, if you are a grown adult and you need the government to tell you everything to do, say, thing, spend, etc...please save us all some time and just jump off a cliff!. This is America, not the Soviet Union.
#3: I think the best example of how good the Cool-Aid has been consumed is in the case of Obama taking his wife to New York for dinner and a play. Here we are in tough times and he tell us all to sacrifice for our kids and yet he decides to mobilize AF1, a helicopter, motorcade and other support staff just for a date! Hell, i can't take the old lady out for dinner and i work, pay taxes, etc! And to hear that people were being pushed off the hi-way so he could come through and were cheering for him! YEAH, go OBAMA!!!! Have fun on your date while your trip pushes me off the road and reminds me of how much we are going to all be your servents...yee haw.
#4: Our goverment is sending people over to China to convince them not to balk on our debt. Right now, China is funding our debt (i.e. the stimulus package) and in leu of that, we are just printing the funny money (which is great for inflation by the way). I think it is hilarious that 55 years ago we were killing the Chi Coms by the thousands in Korea and now they freakin own half our country's future.
Sorry, its been a while but it is so frustrating to me that we have put up with every fix that Obama has said would work and things are only worse. Not just worse for the average guy losing his job, but also for all of our kids who will be born in a world where they pay taxes just to pay interest on debt that was spent on crap that did nothing except make some fat cat democrats richer. This country is going down the toilet and no opposition is being heard. I heard Rush today refer to the media as the State Run media.....seems only too appropriate considering that no matter what happens, Obama smells like a rose while all of us suffer. This SUCKS!
