Is our president ill in an outright clinical way? Has the man lost touch with reality as some in media and elsewhere have actually come to suggest in
recent months? I'm starting to honestly wonder, myself. Stories like this don't help with a 'Safe and Sane' image. They remind me of a person who
wants to play at the job and enjoy the Rock Star aspects of it while doing damn little actual work.
“Obama likely will travel in the coming months to some of the battleground states he won with the help of a robust Latino vote—possibly
including Nevada, New Mexico, Colorado and Florida—to argue the economic case for passing the immigration overhaul,” according to a July 7 report
in the Wall Street Journal.
Has he looked at a map recently? Is he totally unaware of the fact that there are pressing, ongoing and fluid crisis happening in multiple locations
which Presidents have traditionally
paid more attention to than Road Trips, jaunts off to Africa and vacations several times a year...in
between fund raisers and booster speeches?
Obama’s pending road-trip marks a reversal of his previously under-the-radar tactics, which helped push the far-reaching rewrite through the
Senate. All 55 Democratic Senators supported the bill, as did 14 GOP Senators.
I wonder, in all that Constitutional law he supposedly learned well enough to teach a course on himself for awhile when he was younger....did he ever
notice the PUBLIC only votes on a national level once every two years? Only meaningfully and in more than 40% average numbers (historically) every 4
The place he needs to work with people to find compromise and get things accomplished is back in Washington. Not screwing up traffic, people's lives
and busting city budgets with more B.S. overtime and costs they cannot afford to pay because THEY don't print money like the Fed does.
It would be a VERY nice thing if he cared even HALF
as much about pushing Congress to pass a United States Federal Budget (Still budget-less
), to actually try and get everyone in the public divided, pissed off and generally distracted enough to bug their Congressmen about it
with a phone call (all any effort like this can really accomplish, in the end) but it would be BETTER if he just worked for a living and stopped the
endless traveling to and fro, playing to crowds and basking in his own images of greatness every day, to do everything EXCEPT work with other
politicians to GET THINGS DONE.
Right now Policy is simply peddled like a very high powered vacuum cleaner salesman. It's a shameful thing to see and disturbing with a world on the
verge of major major turmoil.
Anyone else getting that feeling lately with stories like this?
*Perpetual Campaigning was a fairly new concept which Clinton first broached as a real thing to do. It's become the FULL TIME JOB of the President at
this point. We need a leader, not a salesman. So does the world, for that matter. At least where the US plays it's part, it needs a strong leader
