All Hail The King Of the Two Americas: The Remix

Since reading my Facebook newsfeed last night after the President’s Sermon Of The Union address, I’m more convinced than ever that the biggest obstacle the President has is tempering America’s response to him. Not his work…him.

 I wanted to write about that. But once again, what came out on paper started to sound familiar. So I hit the archives and discovered that I already had in November 2009.

People, we gotta get rational about this #mediocre-presidency-that-could-be-great-if-we-could-get-both-sides-working-together-but-that-doesn’t-mean-that-it’s-anyone-else’s-fault-other-than-the-man-in-charge-and-that’s-what-he-wants-anyway-since-he’s-a-smart-and-educated-man-who-knew-this-accountability-came-with-the-position-so-he’s-not-asking-anyone-for-excuses-so-let’s-stop-shoving-him-in-the-excuse-box-because-it-diminishes-him-and-his-capabilities-in-the-eyes-of-the-public-and-I’m-not-just-saying-that-because-I’m-in-love-with-him.  Quick.  We’re out of time.

If it’s any consolation, I think it’s what Jesus would do.

  1. Except for those who think he’s the Anti-Christ, he’s personally popular. But he’s been President too long to take him personally anymore. Reforming the financial industry and bailing out consumers before the fat cats should have been his first priority. Instead, first week, he pushes the Democrat Party agenda and tells Republican lawmakers, “Guess what? We won.” P!55ed off the right, override-proofed the healthcare bill, and half-mooned everything since. So much for bipartisanship, and we’re all still homeless with a mortgage. Tsk.

    • I completely agree. Less bailout, more reform. Reform would have also been a better route for healthcare as well. Don’t force me to buy a policy that covers $300 aspirin. Unfortunately, I think many of the current policies have pushed hope just out of reach of the average American. Perhaps he’s trying his hand at the trickle down…?

  2. And too … he could have let the banks, GM and Chrysler fend for themselves in laissez-faire economic fashion, pointing out that is the true path of capitalism (not corporate welfare), shown up Republican economics as social darwinism in the process. Then save the consumer at the banks’ expense (they lost our money, not theirs). After that, the “socialist” sobriquet would not stick and he could have named Marx as his running mate in 2012 without any trouble at all.
