The President is clearly out of touch with the realities of life for every day Americans, regardless of class. Poor American are paying more for gas than they were a year ago. Their dollar buys them less at the grocery store and Walmart where the declining dollar has driven up shipping costs as well as the cost of imports.
The President advocated nuclear power, domestic drilling and clean coal. The green lobby must haved dropped dead, just so they could turn over in their graves. While running for President, obama asailed John McCain's call for 30 new nuclear plants in the United States. He further fought any legislation to open up domestic oil drilling. Never mind that China, by way of Cuban leases, uses horizontal drilling techniques closer to the US mainland than any American company is permitted to. And then there is clean coal. I believe obama called clean coal a fallacy.
The President has failed to fully address our nation's economic issues while chasing devisive legislation which draws resources away from an economic recovery. Powerful Democrats are even recognizing this. Rep. Ike Skelton, D-Mo., chairman of the Armed Services Committee, said ...
"Somewhere along the line, the White House lost its way. Instead of focusing on solutions to help America's families wade through the wreckage of the worst economic crisis since the 1930s, Washington has wasted valuable time wrestling with partisan politics in an effort to rush through drastic reforms that do not directly address our most immediate needs."
Its becomming more and more evident, that our President is like the emperor and his new clothes. Unfortunatly, there is nobody in, the inner circle willing to tell the President that he's naked. GWB was a moron who screwed us all. Barack Obama is a conniving carpet bagger who is willfully screweing us all. Anybody can make a mess, but takes real brains to create a disaster.
