Barack Obama seems to think that conservatives have a lack of faith in the American people:
“For the past few weeks, a majority of Senators have tried not once, not twice, but three times to extend emergency relief on a temporary basis. Each time the partisan minority in the Senate has used parliamentary maneuvers to block a vote, denying millions of people who are out of work much needed relief…These leaders in the Senate who are advancing a misguided notion that emergency relief somehow discourages people from looking for a job should talk to these folks. That attitude I think reflects a lack of faith in the American people…because the Americans I hear from…aren’t looking for a handout. They desperately want to work—they just can’t find a job, ” (Barack Obama).
I find this odd coming from someone who subscribes to a brand of liberalism that:
- Turns average Americans into criminals.
- Mandates the purchase of a good or service as a requirement for lawful residence in the United States.
- Balloons entitlement spending in a way that says, “You’d be less dependent on your mother if the umbilical cord was never cut, than you’re about to be on us.”
I somewhat feel bad for the president. He seems lost in space. Politically, he’s a fractured man. He’s detached from the pulse of the American people in a way that would make David Bowie’s Major Tom do a double-take. If it wasn’t for stimulus bills that didn’t stimulate, health care debacles, a federal government that wants to dabble in the manufacturing of cars, cash for clunkers, and a whole host of other hopeandchange overreaches…this probably wouldn’t register a blip on the average voter’s radar. But at every turn the current administration seems to be looking for ways to spend your money on some newfangled (or should we say old-fangled?) schemes to redistribute wealth.
Perhaps if the President keeps floating away untethered from the opinion of the voting public he’ll be answer the question, “Is There Life on Mars?”
Put in simpler terms, you thought you were getting a David Bowie and Freddie Mercury classic for a president, and you got…Vanilla Ice. Word to ya Motha…
