Even staunch liberal democratic experts like pollster Pat Caddell are starting to show up on television with a new tone and set of words to describe the first few months of the Obama Administration.
In a cable news interview yesterday, Caddell admitted that he did not understand where the Obama administration was going, with the common consensus among experts being that this guy who ran for president as a sort of unifying centrist Democrat, has come out of the box like a One-World-Government radical bent on undermining the United States.
High on everyone’s list of shocking developments are the way the administration is jamming through the most enomous government spending packages in the history of the planet with no real guarantee that any of it will work to restore the freaking economy, let alone the infrastructure.
Experts are actually using the word scary as someone did from the Brookings Institution again on cable news, when he described the whole Gitmo shutdown and manipulation of the language to act as if terroirsts aren’t really our enemy. You have to wonder what’s going on here? Why is this guy moving so fast to change and undo so many things related to terrorism and our enemies, and why is he spending such an incredible amount of money at a time when everyone agrees we don’t have much.
Extremely reputable journalists, former politicians and political advisors are using the word dictatorial about many of the early moves of the Obama Administration.
You might use an even stronger word if you’re a smoker, as I’m sure you noticed a governmental cash grab that went into place silently over the weekend, where cigarettes have suddenly gone up a dollar a pack because Obama needs more money to give to people who, you know, don’t really earn, work for or deserve it. Just grabbed a dollar a pack right out of the wallet of every smoker in America. Maybe next the police will come around and take your gun. Or your crucifix, if you have one hanging on the wall, you know, because an atheist might see it. Or because Bill Maher doesn’t think religion is cool.
Right now I know only two things for sure. 1) It was incredibly stupid that we elected a guy President of the United States who went to a church where the preacher screamed “Goddamn America”…over and over again. 2) We better not make the same mistake twice.
