Obama has finally done it; he has been promoted from the make-believe Office of the President Elect to the make-believe Office of the Let’s-Play-God. I watched Obama’s speech before congress. Oh how he laughed and smiled and laughed and smiled and said “thank you” over and over. I also watched his speech last week detailing (or rather, generalizing) his plans for the housing market. You know, how he’s going to involve himself in the private contract business and re-write the rules how he sees fit. Anyway, at that meeting he laughed and smiled and laughed and said “thank you” a million times as well.
Not that I have anything against being in good humor, but I have noticed with Mr. Obama that he doesn’t seem to recognize that he is a president yet. His demeanor is increasingly disterbing. The man thinks he is a rock star.
At the address of the nation or state of the union or whatever it was, he was still in the “I’m going to lower the oceans” state of mind. Apparantly he is going to “cure cancer in our time” or some such nonsense. He is also going to pay for “universal college education” and “universal healthcare.” Why not?
And how is he going to pay for this? By not raising taxes on people earning below $250, 000 “one dime….one dime…not one dime” as he said. The latest plan is to tax the top 2% of income tax earners. As this Wall Street Journal editorial details, he can take 100% of the top income earner’s income and he won’ t touch the amount needed to pay for his budget requests.
In other words, Obama is lying, again. But, like, whatever, as an Obama supporter might say. Or as Obama would say, “While the cost of action would be great…the cost of inaction would be far greater.” Riiiggghhhhttttt. I see, and the sky is carolina green.
