To govern is to choose. And sometimes the choices are tough ones. When has Barack Obama chosen to take a stand? When he got along to get along with the Chicago machine? When he sat for 20 years in the pews of an ugly neo-segregationist race-baiting grievance-monger? When he voted to deny the surviving “fetuses” of botched abortions medical treatment? When in his short time in national politics he racked up the most liberal – i.e., the most doctrinaire, the most orthodox, the most reflex – voting record in the Senate? Or when, on those many occasions the questions got complex and required a choice, he dodged it and voted merely “present”?
TheOne will not be governing. He will not make any hard choices. He’ll never be accountable for anything unpleasant or unpopular. As Steyn says, he’ll take the path of least resistance. It will be Pelosi and Reid doing the water carrying and he’ll rubber stamp them.
He won’t raise taxes. When he says that, he’s truthin’ all of us. The evil duo in Congress will just let the Bush tax cuts run out in 2010 and our taxes will automatically go back to the pre-Bush levels. Obama will cheer them on from the sidelines. TheOne, The President of the World, will not be responsible for anything. His lackeys will do it for him.
It’s kinda on the same line of Congress never voting themselves a raise… God Bless Them.
Their raise is automatic… unless they vote AGAINST it.
