With my mother still in the hospital as they try to figure out her heart meds, I didn’t have the time to stay glued to the TEE VEE and watch Obama recite his talk about the stimulus package. To be honest, when I saw him speaking LIVE, I quickly changed the channel and kept on cooking artichokes…I have quickly adopted my defense which I used against the aura of GW Bush, which was to ignore the talking head as much as possible and rely on printed words. Annoying as THEY were, they still didn’t raise my blood pressure as much as actually hearing Bush uttering his crap.
And it is the same with the new petulant fraud in the White House. I am on “gray hair” watch, however. I am watching to see the Obama’s hair color change, not out of acquired wisdom, but with the stress of not getting his way ALL the time as the long 4 years unwinds.
So I had to laugh when I saw this AP story on O’s address on the stimulus package. The headline that caught my eye contained the words “fed up” but was the one that linke to the actual story…The AP decided to call this ANALYSIS rather than dropping the editorializing into the story without warning…and it’s quite a delicious opening:
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama looked comfortable enough at his first White House news conference, but he sounded like a man fed up with one thing: Republicans lecturing him about his $820 billion economic stimulus plan.
Message to Obama: The Republicans aren’t the only ones fed up. ME, I’m fed up, too! Being “lectured to” pisses you off? Well, I’m pretty sick of being “lecture to” by YOU!!
Oh, and what happened to the charisma? “Looked comfortable enough” is faint praise indeed…
My underlying nightmare is that in one month, this jerk in the Oval Office and the Democrats in the Congress under the “leadership” of Pelosi and Reid have set up the Democrats to be CRUSHED eventually at the polls. Anything good that the Democrats might accomplish will be blown away because of the crap that has been coming down ever since they’ve taken control.
It’s the ARROGANCE and STUPIDITY, baby!
But why should I care? I’m no longer a Democrat…but I AM a citizen who wants to be free of the GOP that seems to never wise up and move off the subject of women’s bodies and destroying the social safety net (which Obama and the Democrats are helping along…more coming on this).
Fed up? I’m SO FED UP with both Republicans and Democrats, religion being shoved down my throat, etc., etc. that I can’t even begin to express it!!
PS…the artichokes turned out great!!
