Cleaning Up The Mess
Tuesday was the inauguration of the 44th President of the United States. Wednesday is when Barack Obama and Chief Justice Roberts accurately finished the Oath of Office.
If you watched the inauguration coverage (which I didn’t) you’ll know that there were over 1 million people in attendance. However, as you can see from the picture below, liberals are not a clean people.
And with the inauguration we begin four years of what I expect to be one giant trash pick up. When liberals come together, whether it’s at the National Mall and the Lincoln Memorial or in the Senate and the White House, one can generally expect a ton of garbage for other people to clean up.
Obama is this nation’s savior to everyone of his supporters and we’re already hearing that if he ends up not being that all-knowing greatness, then it’s Bush’s fault.
Obama promises immediate relief and plenty of new jobs with his $825 million stimulus plan, but the reality (read, truth) is that it probably won’t have and effect until 2012. If it has any effect at all. And someone’s eventually going to have to clean that up.
Last time a President attempted to assuage America’s economy with this much government interference we needed a World War to come around to clean up FDR’s dump. Guess what was higher in 1940 than it was in 1932. Starts with “un” and ends with “employment”.
Who knows if Obama will pay enough attention to be able to avoid leaving behind an enormous mess for someone else to clean up? Bigger government undeniably results in bigger problems for Americans. Ronald Reagan had it right in his inauguration speech:
In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.
More government is absolutely NOT the answer to whatever problems our country may have. Jimmy Carter didn’t know that. Obama doesn’t seem to realize it either. So far, Obama’s Presidency has been less than impressive .. the trashed Mall, the goofed Oath, a run-of-the-mill Inaugural speech and the stimulus that ultimately will stimulate nothing.
Please realize that just because I said I hoped Obama’s Presidency would be a smashing success, doesn’t mean I am disallowed from criticizing him. The media may not be required to present negative points of view on Barack Obama, but I got out of journalism for a reason.
Don’t miss tomorrow when I tear Obama apart for ordering Gitmo closed. There’s a reason why Al Qaeda endorsed Obama.
