We all know that we are in a mess that will take until 2018 to resolve. We have issues that are so overwhelming we just think that if we hold our breath and Obama throws his magic bullets against the wall that one will stick and make it all better for us in 18 mos. Guess that is as long as anyone can hold on. No mystery there.
We are all thrilled that Obama did such a great job outlining his intentions and putting specific timelines into his action plan, a fresh approach to problem solving. The question is can he do it and did he connect the cause-and-effect dots? Quite frankly he has done more in 40 days than we ever expected from George in the last 4yrs. so if he does nothing but give us motivational tapes, that's more productive than before. The Prez. is positive and forward thinking, despite the political roadblocks he continually faced these past weeks from the Republicans who had no better ideas and no possible political gain either, but as embittered as they are, they just couldn't help themselves. Like the black knight in Monty Python's, "The Holy Grail", still fighting with an arm and a stub of a body left. Their main claim was that Obama has been too negative about the economy. In case you guys didn't get the memo-and seems like George didn't either-WE ARE IN A CRISIS. What do the Republicans expect this President do or say after this past cracker-jack legacy?
Do they expect the Obama administration to lie to us, like George, continue to disrespect us and say that we do not know what we are seeing, that everything is great and our economy is 'thriving' when we are spiraling into oblivian after a 'job well done' by his A-team/Axis of Evil'? The rational thinking coming in from the Republican right, after all that has been said and not said, done and not done in these past 8 yrs., they are as rational as a hooker on crack. On a good day, their most recent GOP leader nominees have been comical, out of touch, completely hypocritical and delusional.
No mystery there, either.
There are other unsolved mysteries that came to mind after we watched and listened.
