Saturday Obama Messege about the Stimulus Package.....really explains the What Next ....



(( My 2 cents.......and he puts the Repugs on notice...we are in a Crisis...Urgent Action is needed...we don't have time for them to act like a bunch of Divas having dramatic fits and meltdowns....People are suffering daily...Obama sent this video out in an email on Saturday...he said to Share it....so spread it round folks....))

I wish someone would answer this question: By what logic do the Republicans think they have a right to oppose anything this president is doing to try to save the country?

They got us into this horrific mess with their eight years of neocon religious belief in unfettered markets and darwinian capitalism. Now they insist on giving us more of the same in Obama's rescue package and if they don't get their way, they threaten obstructionism. It's insane.

It's as if they tossed us all into quicksand and now that the rescuers are on the way, they want to set up some roadblocks to keep the emergency vehicles away.

The Republicans should--to quote Dick Cheney--shut the fuck up.

Because they are republicans... that's why.. and because they can. That's the only reason they need.

Annette said...

tom said...

Thanks for the TIP on where to hear our guy !!

Now to the republicans
WE need to GO AROUND, THROUGH, behind, whatever it takes, if this thing slides any much further south the few of us left who are not unemployed WILL BE
THINGS TO DO:
1) get al franken in office, the senate (hopeless spineless dickless harry reed HAS the power to do so...)
2) Obama needs to call each individual Senator from the freaking repugs to the white house for a barn burning come to jesus smackdown
3) We need to start a christian coalition type watch on the HOMES of the recalcitrants, both house and senate, THIS included BLUE DOGS (hee hee I typed it BLUR dogs first..)
4) We need to make those folk VERY VERY uncomfortable, you know like the anti choice people made doctors uncomfortable...IT COULD WORK IT IS LEGAL, hell I have seen THEM do it,
if we don't do something things will get rapidly out of hand

I heard McCain this morning on the radio whining that when the Repukes had control of both houses and the Pres, they forced things through over Democratic opposition - but that NOW - we were promised CHANGE...

What.

An.

Idiot.

You know what I find sad about all of this is that if he doesn't turn the economy around people will blame him and forget that it was the Bush administration that caused the mess in the first place....

Yes there has to be accountability...but don't let the economic recovery be bogged down by political red tape!

Newsguy,
I wish someone would answer this question: By what logic do the Republicans think they have a right to oppose anything this president is doing to try to save the country?

The answer is certainly "They don't", but we've become accustomed to their foolish policies and their ability to so carelessly spew fear that it may take some time for them to realize that they do not have the house.

My suggestion is for them to step back into the shadows or this subject will completely destroy their party.

Not to mention this country.

Monday eve 7PM....

Sorry between work and a Stomach bug I have been under the weather...down and out...and I see that you all carried on without me...( as I knew you would...) I did watch Obama's Town Meeting today...I will post later- esp the introduction by "Ed"....heartwrenching ....it was beautiful to see how people were buoyed up by seeing Obama, and being heard and their pain acknowledged...

(1) About the Video on this post- Obama sent it out and said it was to be shared...So....done..( it was emailed)...
Now time to answer questions...

PM:::
Ahhh, you did indeed try to answer Newsguy, and did a great job, sadly...there is no good answer to the rethugs behavior......and I have to say...hmmm, Logic ???? I don't think the Repugs are being logical or reality based- if they had a clue they would see that people are hurting
....badly....they are so used to hearing themselves and thinking they are in power....that they are missing the picture...

Smalltown RN:::
good to see you ( I think I am shut out of your blog- can you email me ? thanks ) now about Obama- we all know HOW the titannical economic situation was created and WHO created it- so please don't worry- we all know 8 years of Bush has about broken our country....it's hard to watch the repugs try to continue the Bush policies...So don't worry - we will get Change...somehow..

Sewmouse::
I saw mcpain today blathering on and on..and my first thought was -lordy he thinks he is still campaigning...and yes, he is a TOTAL idiot...

TOM::
you should go work for Obama...great plan...I hope and pray the the rethugs are indeed headed for some come to geesus moments...I would love to know if their constituents are phoning and emailing their wants and needs...

Annette, Just Me, and Lady Rose::
thank you for helping everyone and keeping things flowing....

Newsguy::
as I said above...there is NO logic for how and WHY the Rethugs are acting this way...heartless idiots think they are still in power....as tom said they need to be schooled - a come to geesus smackdown....or what ? are their people calling and yelling at them ? they should...( also the Media has been airing them- but THEY LOST....and we need to remind them daily- if by emails....letters ..phone....and we should remind the media too)
