Whew! Everything's Gonna Be OK!

Thank Moses!

Joe Biden will be helping to steer the Good Ship Obama through the rocks and shoals of everyday president, uh, stuff..

He announced on ABC's "This Week" that he will "oversee a task force on how to build the middle class..". No mention if that includes destroying the wealthy who actually employ the middle class with "J.O.B.S". You know, that "three letter word"?

He continues with this foreboding warning to Obama:

I said I want a commitment from you that in every important decision you'll make, every critical decision, economic and political as well as foreign policy, I'll get to be in the room," Biden said. He said that Obama agreed and has adhered to that commitment.

God help us.

Among other issues, Saint Joe offered the following commentary:

-- The loan agreement for automakers will require sacrifices from all segments of the industry. While saying organized labor did not bring the carmakers to the brink of collapse, unions in particular are "going to have to make some additional sacrifices, and they know it and they understand it."
--The economic aid plan being readied by the Obama team will focus on creating a strong energy grid, will pay for thousands of new jobs focusing on making buildings and homes more energy efficient and will help health care providers invest in electronic record keeping for patients. "The end result, though, the money we're spending, we're going to get back three- and four fold."
--The military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, should close, and the U.S. reputation abroad has suffered as a result of the Bush administration's policies on surveillance and detainees. "To quote from a previous national security report put out by the intelligence community, we have created, not dissuaded, more terrorists as a consequence of this policy," Biden said.
--It's up to the Justice Department to determine if charges should be filed against any member of the Bush administration for prisoner abuse that occurred at Abu Ghraib or Guantanamo. "President-elect Obama and I are not sitting thinking about the past," he said.

Ooooh.. That last qoute is a juicy one.

At the first sight of troubled waters for The Good Ship Obama, with his drooling, zombified media, calls will go out for the heads of Bush and members of his administration.

It'll be like "Wag the Bush".

It's reasonable to conclude from you tinfoil wearing wingnuts, especially the author of this tripe, that you are against helping the middle class. And it's always been you fools who have hollered about "class warfare." That's pretty funny.

The more you write Mallow, the dumber you appear.

John S:

I can't say who scares me more over the next six months: Bambi, Idiot Joe, or the Federal Reserve. Hopefully, Joe will still in the room when the Fed balance sheet reaches $50 trillion and inflation reaches 500 percent a month. Can't wait to hear his solution to that one, but I'm sure that it won't help the middle class.

I haven't heard this much depressing talk coming out of the presumptive executive since 1978.

"The trouble with socialism is: pretty soon you run out of other people's money". Lady Thatcher.

Build the middle class, says Three-letter Joe. And how? By (penalizing) taxing upper-levels and giving the money away? By underwriting public works jobs? By restricting free commerce? Ahem.

A middle class is created when a product or a service is produced that the market accepts and desires, and purchases. The middle class is generated by the purchase of something manufactured or delivered. No other way. None. Not by a wave of the "Office" of the President Elect's magic wand, nor by declaration, nor by HopeyChange wish. Something has to be made, manufactured, mined, sold, mended, cleaned, baked, etc. etc. etc. The middle class is helped when its taxes are lowered and its products and services remain in demand.

And, by the way, no more BS about how FDR freed America from the shackles of the Great Depression. No. Lend-lease and WWII did that. FDR made it worse prior to 1939.

"FDR made it worse prior to 1939."

C'mon. There was a recession in 1937-38, but from 1933-1937 unemployment dropped steadily from around 25% to 14%. Everyone knows that. Say what you will about FDR (and he was a tyrant, see the 1938 mid-term attempted purge of "disloyal" Democrats by FDR in the wake of his unsuccessful court-packing scheme). But he was what the doctor ordered in 1932 at a time when schools were packing edible trash from the lunch room and sending it home with needy students; I'm not talking excess or walk-in fridge stuff; I mean stuff from the can in which partially eaten food is dumped before passing the lunch tray through the skullery window. All mixed-together stuff. There was a name for it. See W. Manchester, The Glory and the Dream.
And don't forget Hoover sending MacArthur and Patton to chase down and shoot the WW1 vets known as the Bonus Army. The army and police killed several in DC before the "rabble" was given "safe conduct" to cross the Potamac, after which were attacked again resulting in several more deaths. Plus Hoover made the Marine detail act as waiters in quasi-Napoleonic-era costumes. Like Nixon did his first year in the White House.

C'mon guys, show some intelligent conversation instead of personal and/or ad hominem attacks.

Funny how Bidey didn't mention which room they would be in. Probably an underground vault in hiding when that promised "generated crisis" takes place on January 21st or 22nd. Even Powell confirmed it. Everyone knows congress threw the middle class overboard years ago, and the Obama bunch have no interest in changing the plan.

Why... that sounds almost "Cheney-like."

Hasn't the current VP been accused of doing the very same thing (and much more) for the last 7 plus years?
