Each Administration enters office with a hallmark theme. Clinton stated he was going to have the most ethical operation in history. Obama keeps pitching transparency, which also translates to honesty. At every turn he has failed so far, only with the excuse he is moving too fast and his administration is too new to get it done.
Obama came into office complaining about Bush’s budget deficits, but his proposals mire us in debt for centuries. Accepting that the current deficit is due to the economy, can someone please explain why the outsized expenditures continue even into next year when they project a 3% growth in GDP? My thought would be that the expenditures are for political and not economic purposes.
So during the coming weeks I will be laying out critiques of the major areas that Obama wants to change. There will be no straw man scenarios as Obama has become fond of creating. We will analyze the proposals put forth by Obama and offer alternative facts and proposals. We will see that in the case of energy, health care and education, Democrats have created the crisis through misguided governmental policies. Now they want to offer us a cure by giving us more of the same.
The attempt to stifle policy analysis not only challenges our senses, but goes against American values. The current group in power railed against the Bushies because they said if you questioned the War on Terror, your patriotism was called out. Now they want to suppress us while they radically alter the federal government. We must all be the loyal opposition to assure our collective path secures our collective future. Anything less would be un-American.
