The "I inherited this mess" mantra is already wearing thin. Especially when his policies are doing nothing to improve matters, only making them
worse. He won't be able to play that card much longer.
Think about it. Now he says that the way to economic prosperity is by enacting a national healthcare program. How does that compute?
He plays the Politics of Fear. He ramrodded the spending bill through because to do otherwise would result in 'catastrophe'. He said GM was 'too
big to fail'.
Nobody read the bill - once again, he broke a campaign promise on transparency in new legislation - nobody was allowed to read the bill.
He said no more earmarks. The Omnibus spending bill had 8,500 earmarks.
He said Geithner was the only genius that could save us.
As I said earlier, the masses are uneducated irt the economy and politics. We only have to look at some of the 'man on the street' interviews to
realize that. The battle is in our hands.
Our energy policy is in tatters. Instead of taking advantage of the current lull in the action to drill offshore, develop shale oil, increase nuclear
plants, build more refineries, etc., he has effectively silenced that debate in favor of 'green' energy, which is designed to make billionaires out
of Algore and a select few others. Face it - windmills and solar panels will not power our cities, hospitals, and transportation needs. We need more
focus on this area.
Sad to say, the Republicans have let the country down. They served up McCain as a candidate - wtf was that about? McCain is liberal light.
I don't believe that Republicans need to woo the liberals in order to win. Instead, they need to return to conservative policies and stop being such
wusses. They had so much ammo to blast Obama with in the last election, but were too afraid to use it. McCain even prohibited the use of Obama's
middle name in his campaign.
The Republican base, conservatives, and independents are a strong factor. Focus on the economy, point out each and every mistake Obama makes, push
energy independence and job creation, and they have an excellent chance of making inroads.
It only took 4 years to lose their power - they can win it back in the next 4.
