What is new with the President who doesn't govern and just adds more
unfunded mandates to the lists of agenda items. He doesn't have to fulfill
his constitutional mandates but can gin up more and more requirements and
agencies and monitoring and laws than even the most active liberal can
govern.He is met Peter's Principle full head-on. Murphy's
law and the Chicago bunch rule the roost. The plan is there and even if there
wasn't an POTUS the agenda would go on as it is etched in steel and just
like the vacations he takes with his family, beyond the budget he doesn't
even make. Those things still just happen, like it or not. Austerity doesn't appear to be part of his lifestyle as he makes
statements all around the world. President Clinton and his wife definitely sent
the message and set the image for this President. Al Gore and Joe Biden are
along for the ride.
utterite says his agenda carries on? really, then just what is it?
The president's agenda carries on, and it should. That's what we
elected him to do. We've turned recent sideshows into hyper partisan,
government stopping donnybrooks, wherein somehow the president is given credit
for a finger in every pot. Lincoln knew and prophetically spoke of how no
foreign nation would topple the US, but added that we could easily do so
ourselves. Another great philosopher, Pogo, pointed out that the enemy is
'us'. Our ability to share ideas and have a civil discourse is rapidly
eroding into childish, obstinate grandstanding from both sides. We're
destroying our own government. Democracy will not die to the sound of thunderous
applause, but rather to the sound of partisan obstructionism where there should
be and once was compromise and consensus.
So what Obama here is saying that he will not let his cover-ups and scandals get
in the way of him fundamentally changing this great country (translation for
changing the constitution). What's even more sad than him having these
desires is the fact that millions are willing to back him up in his
endeavors.When news came out that he won the election, while the
crowds cheered I thought of the quote in Star Wars: "So this is how liberty
dies -- with thunderous applause".
other than spending other's money, just what is obama's agenda?
