The president in the news

leave a comment »

Whenever the president of the United States is in the news or in the media, it is either for public relations, campaigning or whining.

It is never about a significant accomplishment.  There are no significant accomplishments.

It is the president putting his “slant” on something.

It is “look at me, see me, I am great, I did a good thing, I am right, my opponents are wrong”, etc.

The television broadcasting companies interrupt regular programing so the president can have his regular whine.

Everything a president does is in one of two categories;  harmful or worthless.

It is all about getting re-elected or promoting his party.

When are the citizens/voters going to wake up and smell the disaster?

Is the economy getting better?  Is the real jobless rate(currently about 20%) going up or down?  Where is foreign policy going?  Crime, education, etc?

Debt Ceiling Crisis on Television

leave a comment »

Both democrats and republicans continue to play the blame game on television.  No one more so than Obama.

Everyone knows there needs to be significant spending cuts.

Both sides must agree; but both sides will not give an inch to reach a compromise.

The United States can not continue to run huge budget deficits year after year.

The president is the man in charge.  He is the one ultimately responsible.  This does not mean his way is the only way.

This is a prime example of why the presidential election process needs to be changed.

Obama on Television

leave a comment »

The other night Obama was on television.

He was whining like a child about the Debt Ceiling crisis and the Republicans.  He was crying like a spoiled brat that always wants his own way.  He should grow up and try to mature.  After all, he is the leader of the country.  This does not mean he is the supreme dictator.

Both the Democrats and Republicans were elected in the same manner.  The parties have a dispute(over how to solve the debt ceiling crisis).  Both parties are supposed to negotiate and comprise.  Neither party can have it all their own way.

Obama’s going to the people is the sign of a loser.  Why?  Some Americans elected Republicans while other elected Democrats.

This is another sign that politics as usual will not solve the problems that plague the United States.

What is the president doing now?

leave a comment »

Obama continues to debate on the debt ceiling while the Libya boondoggle continues.

He ran for office on the mantra of change.  The change is what he wants.

But he is another do little president.  Except for running for re-election.

The United States needs significant change.  The kind of changes that are good for ALL Americans.

VOTERS/CITIZENS MAKE YOUR CHOICE

leave a comment »

Voters/Citizens have three choices:

1.  Form a new political party

2. Take over an existing party

3. Do nothing

 

The third choice is a sure loser.  It means more of the same, the United States keeps sliding down the slope into Third World Status.

The second choice has the advantage of existing structure and organization, but the party loyalists backed by special interest groups will always sabotage your efforts.

The first choice has the disadvantage of starting from nothing, but the possibilities are endless.

 

Forming a new political party may be the most difficult option, but it is the one with the chance of success.

Our bet is that Voters/Citizens will make the first choice.  Why?  Simple.  Voters/Citizens are people and usually people want someone else to do it.

This hardly ever works.  Remember the saying, “If you want something done right, do it yourself”.

FORMING A NEW POLITICAL PARTY

with one comment

This option also has pros and cons.

The advantages are that everything is new, endless possibilities; no prior party line or loyalties to overcome, and no resistance from politicians.

The disadvantage is the everything must be created and put in place, but this provides unlimited opportunities.  The tasks are many; from registering the party to getting members.
