Obama, Holding the Door for the GOP Since 2009
The latest cave-in!
Once again, Obama shows us that he is merely the good cop and the GOP is the bad. Unsolicited, he gives them something they wanted last summer: a pay freeze for federal employees, to last for two years.
Which coincidentally is the likely remainder of his administration, given he'll win no GOP voters by these actions, and is losing more and more of people like me who did
vote for him in the mistaken impression that I was voting for a Democrat with a spine and that the GOP would be out of power.
This is another of Obama's "compromises," which he defines as "pre-emptive capitulation." He's throwing them this as one would throw meat at wolves chasing one in hopes of distracting them. But he only makes the wolves hungrier and faster every time he does.
That's the charitable view. A less charitable one is that his job
is to assist the GOP, while giving some Democrats the delusion of having a president. In any case, whomever he thinks he's president of, it's not any of us.
He'll be talking to the GOP soon, they say. It will go like this:
"Okay, I've given you everything. Now will Fox stop saying bad things about me?"
"Well...here's some more."
"Not good enough."
"My shirt. Here's my shirt. Now?"
"We need pants too. And those are nice shoes."
"Okay, I'm naked. Now can you let me stay president?"
"Why would anyone vote for a naked man?"
Do you want a picture of his relationship with them as well? Here you go.
He is not our president. And we need to start looking for some way past him. And his apologists, more concerned with shutting up its own side than in holding Obama to what he lied that he stood for, need to remember that it's the good of our people, not of Obama, that is important.
The only difference between this and if it were a Republican is that in that case, the Democrats might at least want to appear to fight. Obama is incapable of fighting. Or of caring about those who actually voted for him. Who, by 2012, won't care to.
Looking at his face causes me to feel nauseous now. The stink of cowardice and failure tends to do that.
He is not our president. He is theirs.
