Musings 46--The Crying President From Texas

So there he is again, Mr. President holding up his hand in a Nazi salute while playing the game of poor-little-me. (See picture.) It may have been cute before the election, but it is just plain tiresome now.

Mr. President whines because the big bad democrats are stopping his programs. They are all obstructionist. They throw roadblocks at him from every angle. Mr. President, a short Texan, still doesn't get it--his party won the election. They now control everything. Republicans control the White House, they control the House of Representatives and they control the Senate. Also, the Supreme Court is mostly a conservative court.

Thus, it seems to me, Mr. President should pretty much have it his way. When you have four aces you don't need the wild deuce. Come on, you short Texan...govern--pass some laws, write some bills, remake the world in your own image. Quite blaming the democrats, who have no agenda. You have the cards, so play them.

I think that the republicans have blamed the democrats for everything bad for so long that they have no idea how to govern. Maybe they need to be the party in the minority. For better than a half century they did that job well. If Mr. President doesn't get his Texas ass in gear then the Republican Party may well get to play that part again after the 2006 elections.

It just sounds like sour grapes to me when you have the President of the United States whining about the democrats that are holding up his wondrous programs. Again, you control it all--get on with it.

Here in the print shop we have a tradition: Whoever is the new guy gets blamed for everything. If the coffee is bitter, it is the new guy's fault. If the air conditioner is too low, it is the new guy's fault. I guess Mr. President has been using the Patriot Act to spy on us here in Huntington because he has stolen a page out of our book. Instead of the new guy, it's the damn democrats...bad crats, bad liberals, bad commies. It is a tune that we've all heard before. Get off it and get going, Mr. President.

When Bill Clinton took office. His party controlled both the house and the senate. He should have really gotten a lot done, but he didn't. Instead, the democrats shot themselves in the foot and piddled around...and around....and around.....

If I could get one wish from the politics fairy, it would be to have a divided congress after 2006. Maybe then we could get something done instead of passing the buck. Of course, Mr. President has not made a mistake since he quit drinking and got religion. Let us pray!

AMEN!!! You said it straight on, Print Guy!
The party that wins hands down in the arena of ideas is beginning to tire me with their pandering. Both houses AND the White House...Let's get some things rolling for crying out loud.
In short, I agree with you 100%.

Your Welcome :)

You tell 'em print guy. I wish more people had the gonads to tell it like it really is. All King Bush is doing is getting more people killed, while he and Blackheart (I like that name)Dick continue to make money hand over fist.
