Where does One Begin…

Feb 6, 2009 | Pop Culture/Politics | 12 comments

Is this a joke?  If you saw our President on TV last night or are keeping up with anything he’s been doing then HOPEFULLY you are beginning to see his true colors; good night, if you have not already.

I really don’t know where to begin, I have been laying low to give everybody a break but my goodness this guy is going to take this country down in flames – I pray I am wrong.  He escapes to read to school children when supposedly this country is already going down in flames.  Bush reads to kids the day of 9-11 and people ridicule him!  Hello??  Despite what Rosie thinks Bush did not know the attacks where going to  happen!!!  President Obama on the other hand has only been on the job for a few days and in the middle of all this scandal with his cabinet has the nerve to say to school children “we had to escape.”  Talk about hiding behind the children!!!!
  
And then, last night on TV (I don’t have TV but manage to stay slightly informed) he has the NERVE to talk to the American people the way he did!  He is more condescending than Al Gore and more cocky than Bush COMBINED!  What a whiner!!!  Crying about how tired his staff is, how tired Nancy Pelosi’s staff if.  Poor thing.  And crying about the “cable chatter.”  What, can’t handle it when people disagree with you?  Leadership turning out to be a little difficult?  When all the Hollywood effects and the cool infomercials are done, when Bruce Springstien and Beyoncé have gone home…Not, perhaps the Messiah after all???  
No Mr. President, this is a SPENDING BILL!  And hey, you “Republicans” – shaving 100 million off the bill does not make it palatable!!!  All he wants to do is rush, rush, rush this bill through and all it is is all the CRAP that the democrats have not been able to get through in the last 10 years.  Why don’t those jerks just cut taxes???  Stop printing money, stop waving a measly $500 tax credit in my face as if that is going to help me.  I mean, Oh goody, my health insurance premiums just went up to $500 a month so if you think I am going to run out and buy a new wardrobe to “stimulate the economy” you’ve got another thing coming!!!  
And THE NERVE of him complaining about he lifestyles of the CEOS on Wall Street when where is our dear President this week???  He is at a spa in Virginia!!!  Him and all his buddies.  His “first time” on Air Force One and he joking about how cool it is.  AND he doesn’t even fly over Kentucky where people are STILL without power!  But they are just a bunch of white people living in the hills so they don’t matter…Can you imagine if Bush didn’t fly over Katrina????
I know I am going on and on trying to piece together all the news that has been coming in the last week.  I am really disgusted if you can not tell.  You’ve got people on The Hill saying they have to make sure that the labor jobs created by the stimulus don’t land in the laps of “white laborers” (IE: my husband), you’ve got Nancy Pelosi and the bile the she spews every day and then our cocky, ego maniac of a President.  It’s really unreal.  Call Capitol Hill and voice your hopeful “outrage” over this bill and of course (and I get harassed for not saying this enough), but pray for this country, pray for our President and do your best to stay informed.
I know I am just rambling but here are some articles/sound bites to help.  Some are quite a hoot:

    OH….Boy! You’re right, his ego was showing mightily last night. I think he may have forgotten the cameras were rolling. MERCY! I’ve been watching this whole thing pan out and he just cannot believe the PEOPLE are not with him on this one.

    He knows that he has Pelosi, Reid, et. al. (they wrote the bill!) but he wanted those darn Republicans to go along, too and they’re not and he can’t stand that. I cannot fathom what his reaction would be if something REALLY went wrong! He just can’t stand not getting his own way! He thinks he might not win this one.

    Oh, Obama.

    Now, how ’bout some of this Obama? Leadership. A postive example. A positive, uplifting attitude. Not being so negative. A cool head in rough waters. Not letting the little stuff get to you.

    We can tell the media should have gotten you ready for the real world during the campaign, but alas they didn’t and now you’re stuck with some tough questions and you’re finding out what it’s really like to be The One where the BUCK STOPS. I HOPE everything will CHANGE for the better, Obama. Can’t say that I have much pity on you.

    Yes. It’s hard to have pity on someone who was so critical of our former President, who said untrue and was accusatory of our military…and it’s hard not to be surprised that this man cannot lead when he never had a bit of experience leading.

    Girl I am right there with you..I called my mom in IL and said, “are you watching this clown?” He was screaming…if you didn’t know he was the Prez you would have never guessed by it by the way he presented himself. Pitiful!!! Oh and his staff is tired…well buck up staffy waffy…it has only just begun.

    Okay, now I feel better.

    Hugs,

    I escaped to the beauty of my garden today. Couldn’t take one more computer news update on this horror (I too lack TV — what a blessed decision that was nearly 20 years ago). I played and prayed in my gardens . . . I have only one Messiah — and He listens.

    p.s.
    I hope you don’t mind that I link to your gateau au chocolat on my Sunday Wonder post. I know my readers will be salivating when they see the pic and will want to run right over here and copy down that delicious recipe. : D

    I cannot believe how he is presenting himself. He’s out giving television interviews and as you pointed out, escaping to read to children. Did he realize this was a 24/7 job? He really does look dazed and confused. It’s all so unprofessional.

    Also, this bill they are going to pass goes far beyond a spending package, it’s a whole different philosophy of governing even farther left that what everyone realized he was going to do. This is socialism and I’m horrified that this bill will pass.

    In all the years that Bush was slammed by the press and the public, he never lowered himself to whine and complain about it. He handled himself with dignity. He was a gentleman.

    This guy is immature. He’s like a little boy who doesn’t get his way on the playground.

    We needed a grown up in the WH. Sigh…

    I saw someone comment on the Politico boards that they thought it would take six months before the country became disillusioned with O, but they never imagined it would be less than six weeks before that actually happened.

    You’re right, though. We need to pray for our country and its leadership. Too bad it feels like I’m praying for my enemies.

    Right on!!!! As always, love your post! I did call my Rep Thad McCotter (R) and both of my LIBERAL senator’s…Stabenow and Levin. Couldn’t get through at all to Levin’s office and left Stabenow quite a message! It felt good!

    Stopped over from Fairly Conservative.A two-stepping NASCAR follower who reads the Bible and Gone with the Wind, shows Michele Maulkin and Salon on the same blog list, likes the music of Allison Krouse, is into conservative parenting, and makes lemon tarts ‘should’ live right here in Virginia. As a Jeff fan we can overlook that Junior thing.
    Your comments on the Obama time out are right on the money. Anyone who thinks he went to that school for anything other than a photo-op and to do what he does best, campaign, is in denial. This is a prime example of what his leadership style is going to be(and has been before), style over substance.

    Kudos to your post! What a mess all the “cool” voters got us into. It’s a shame. People voted for him for all the wrong reasons. Ron Paul, McCain, anyone but him. Inexperience does not work for such a high position. I read this words the other day and are so very true, “Raising the capital gains tax will hurt nearly every American earning over 40k a year, but it will be worth it because it is *fair*.” He will no doubt be going down as the president of epic fail.
