Obama Speaks, Boehner Listens
As Barack Obama made a supreme extra effort to bring Republicans into the fold for a true bi-partisan plan to plug the dike in this failing economy, the Republicans, under the "leadership" of the Emperor of Evil, John Boehner, and Rush "Oxycontin" Limbaugh, have accused the President of loading his Stimulus Package with programs that will remain for years and guarantee a Democratic majority for the future. They also accuse him of making subtle but huge policy changes, and say he is redistributing money to the poor. Well, it's about time someone did.
What did Obama really do? He simply formulated a plan to slowly dig us out of this mess the Republicans created and presented it to them. His intent was not to create further division, but to work together for the good of the American people. The only goal of the Republican Party is to play politics, protect corporate and wealthy interests, and to embarrass Obama. NOT ONE REPUBLICAN STOOGE VOTED FOR THE STIMULUS PLAN! NOT ONE! They played right into his hands.
So, Obama has tripled the Education budget, made significant changes to the tax code, and expanded unemployment insurance in only his first week in office. His commitment to change is real and making a lot of Repugs very uncomfortable. Obama's brilliant strategy of attempting to bring them into the fold has demonstrated to the media and the people that he means what he says. The NO VOTE comedy has resulted in the media praising Obama's bi-partisanship and the people scorning the non-cooperation of the Republicans. Boehner and Limburger have never looked worse.
Obama will now move forward with his agenda, knowing that he has the support of the people and the media, and that he has successfully demonstrated that the Democrats must go it alone to restore America's place in the world. He has completely outsmarted the Republican suits and now will move on with his agenda, having demonstrated that CHANGE is not a word, but a movement that has left the Republican Party in ashes. It couldn't have happened to a nicer bunch of reprobates.
Brillliant, Mr. President.
