President Obama is not getting what the election was about. As the press is asking repeatedly now, Obama has to face up to the fact he went down the wrong path. He is still defensive and unwilling to go where the people want to go.
Clearly he sees himself as the one who gets to decide whose ideas will be implemented. He has not figured out that he is being rejected. He won’t even admit it was the Democrats failed actions which racked up $5 trillion dollars in debt in 2 short years! That used to take over a decade.
This is going to be a lousy 2 years.
Update 1: The guy is babbling now. Now he is blaming being ‘rushed’ – who is in charge ‘dude’!
Update 2: He will never get it. He thinks bad results ave nothing to do with failed approaches. He is taking tax and spending cuts off the table since he has ‘looked at them and considered them’.
Update 3: Obama really does not get what happened. He moans about China’s high speed trains while saddling businesses with taxes and mandates and regulations which suck up money best spent on innovation. The government DOES NOT innovate – trust me on this. They fund the private sector to innovate (Lockheed’s skunk works, the internet, nuclear medicine, etc).
Take that lunatic 1099 reporting requirement in Obamacare. It is so obviously a stupid money waster to anyone who has been in business. He simply admits his lack of any real world experience caused him to totally miss the implications of that little detail. He has missed uncountable little details (like there are no shovel ready jobs) since coming to office.
And while he inherited a deficit ($1 trillion from TARP), he is the one who signed into law policies that exploded that deficit 5 fold! He really is either seriously delusional or a chronic liar. He thinks his foggy and misleading rhetoric still mesmerizes and confuses.
He refuses to admit he needs to give up his big government solutions. As I said in my post this morning, because the GOP only has the house they will be forced to simply hold hearings and stop further deployment of Obama’s foolish, liberal ideas. And that puts them in a risky position. They need to handle our young, inexperienced and stubborn president carefully. Make sure it is always his naive arrogance that causes the coming gridlock.
