However my confidence that-- apparently just over half the population and nearly all media and major instituions-- will hold him accountable isn't quite high. But that Bob Woodward is sounding an alarm might be meaningful. We'll see.
I hope someone keeps a log of all the “Obama-Drama” dirty tricks that the White House will play on us innocent Americans to try to make us hate the GOP.
Release jailed criminals? Obama-drama!
Create long lines at airports? Obama-drama!
Stop inspecting food? Obama-drama!
Forget to mail Granny’s Social Security check? Obama-drama!
I did some quick math. In 2008, the federal government spent $8,900 for every man, woman and child in this country. Last year they spent $10,200. (I used constant 2005 dollars). In 2008 we were able to house criminals, inoculate children, control air traffic and do a million and one sundry other things. Today, according to Obama, we will unleash financial Armageddon if we just slow down the increase a couple of percent. We are spending 15% more and deescalating two wars, and we can’t manage to provide necessary services? I think we need better managers here.
I reject that word, cruelty.
It implies the victim gives a **** about the perp.
Naked meanness and evil, are more appropriate. And it inspires a drive towards total resistance.
