Investor’s Business Daily has an excellent article that pretty much says what we’re all thinking right now:
When Congress debates Obama’s sweeping health care and energy proposals, industries, regions and governmental philosophies will clash. Will this improve confidence? Reduce uncertainty? A prudent president would have made a “tough choice” — concentrating on the economy and deferring his more contentious agenda.
Similarly, Obama claims to seek bipartisanship but, in reality, doesn’t. His bipartisanship consists of including a few Republicans in his Cabinet and inviting some Republican congressmen to the White House for the Super Bowl.
Obama thinks he can ignore these blatant inconsistencies. Like many smart people, he believes he can talk his way around problems. Maybe. He’s helped by much of the media, who seem so enthralled with him that they don’t see glaring contradictions.
During the campaign, Obama said he would change Washington’s petty partisanship; he also advocated a highly partisan agenda. Both claims could not be true. The media barely noticed; the same obliviousness persists. But Obama still runs a risk: that his overworked rhetoric loses its power and boomerangs on him.
It’s an excellent summary of the looming disaster facing the country. Go Read the whole thing. Right now!
