Sorry Ass Republicans: The Party of NO
There has been a lot of talk recently about the Federal Government’s deficit. If you just landed on this planet, you would think it was something invented by the Obama administration. What about the size of the deficit that was left to the Obama administration from the Bush administration? Do we just forget about that?
Given that President Obama inherited the present economic mess, I would think it only sporting to give him four downs to move the ball out to midfield. In fact, I suspect that there are some big savings to be had in Federal spending with more transparency in government programs. I would bet that there is a lot of waste that could be slowed or stopped that would eventually reduce our deficit by a sizable amount over the next four years. But, I think the sporting thing to do is give the man a chance to advance the economy.
The talking heads keep up their talk about the deficit, but have no ideas how we are to move our economy out of this recession, that is moving in the direction of a depression, without spending money. The Republicans have now become the party of NO, and I think that is an excellent place for them to be. Perhaps, after the next election in 2010, there will be NO Republicans in Congress, or, so few that it does not mean anything when a vote is taken.
I think we should all just chill and give President Obama and his administration their four years to move the economy out of the recession that he inherited. Again, I know this is not sports, but politics. If it were sports, the sorry ass Republicans in Congress would be getting their collective asses kicked.
