What Is The President's Plan?

I guess we now have a glimpse into President Obama's governing style.

In what could be the greatest challenge of his administration, the economy is diving quicker than Jacques Cousteau on speed. So how does Mr. Obama choose to confront this most serious crisis?

He has outsourced the problem to his fellow spend-freaks on the hill, whose sole objective seems to be to see just how much pork they can stuff into this sausage disguised as a "stimulus" package.

In one of the presidential debates, Obama stated that he would use a "scalpel" when it comes to cutting out wasteful spending.

In this case he hasn't even examined the patient.

Yesterday, at a "retreat" for his Democratic colleagues, he proclaimed that a "stimulus bill" is inherently a "spending bill", and that was the point of it. Nice red meat for his fellow tax and spend liberals, but a narrow, stupid statement otherwise.

Yes, emergency spending may be one aspect of of crafting a stimulus package, but it should not be the only ingredient , as Obama's statement implies.

This also begs the question: Where the hell has the new Treasury Secretary been during all this? You know, the tax-cheating Tim Geithner? This man was touted as the most indispensable person to address this crisis by the President himself, but we have not seen nor heard from him at all.

Seems like the trouble with the other tax-cheating cabinet picks has made Obama think the best way to utilize Mr. Geithner is to keep him under wraps, away from the media and fed-up public, when this is exactly the time he should be out in front on this issue.

All of this makes Obama seem aimless and impotent. He has done nothing for this country during one of it's darker economic moments. Nothing includes giving a coherent explanation of exactly why we should all get behind this plan.

The only jobs he's stimulated are ones outside of this country in the form of overseas abortions. If that sector is anything like it is here, business should be booming.

I for one am not surprised by Barry's ineptness. He had no experience. All he had was oratory skills and they are getting thin. I can't for the life of me figure out why the dem's won't cut the waste. It just does not make sense politically. 75% of the people do not want this current package. How arrogant. ww

Considering much of the bil... (Below threshold)

Considering much of the bill is centered on spending in public/gov sector it might be instructive to revisit how the TARP program worked that was signed into law by Bush.

According to the testimony of Harvard Professor Elizabeth Warren, who is chairing the Congressional Oversight Panel for TARP, Treasury doled out $254 billion for bank assets worth only $176 billion - an overpayment of $78 billion of taxpayer funds. She has also noted that Treasury has not cited any reason for the overpayment. According to the Congressional Budget Office's independent estimate released a month ago, Treasury overpaid $64 billion.
So, boys and girls, anyone hear what the Treasury "Taxes are optional" Secretary is doing about this?

For extra credit points those in favor of the latest bill, can you explain how this won't happen again for a bill that is 4 times the size of Bush's monstrosity?

The federal government is very inefficient. Governments get a little better as it gets closer to the people but is still worse than private sector. That is why governments should be limited as much as possible. Get rid of the B.S. regulations such as requiring banks to give loans to people who can't afford them and stay for the most part out of the way. Allow people and businesses prosper or fall according to the market. The current government doesn't want to allow either at the moment.

Barry wants future cover. ... (Below threshold)

Barry wants future cover. He won't hesitate to throw the Democratic Congress under the bus when this crap sandwich from Pelosi and Reid goes south. He'll stress that "it was an emergency" and "I had no choice". He'll count on the Obamabots to just nod their heads and keep on bleating like the good little sheep that they are.

Plan? Plan? There was supposed to be a PLAN?

I thought King OBarry the First would be crowned, and suddenly everything would be kittens and unicorns! That Iran would suddenly wake up and be friends with everyone in the ME, that the Palestians would all convert to Judiasm, that the Jews would all convert to Islam, and that money would grow on trees for every worthy purpose that King OBarry the First would decree, AND the world would be a constant 73.54 F from pole to pole! (Except for scenic areas for polar bears and penguins, of course...)

You mean it ain't happening?

Huh. Fancy that...

Marc- unbelievable $78 million. I'm still trying to wrap my mind around that one!

Bam Bam is to busy with important things like coming up with a new phrase for the war on terror. He doesn't like that phrase and wants something a little "nicer". As an American that's definitely on the top of my list: how the world perceives us. The one and only thing I want to hear from him and the good ship lollipop is how the hell are we going to get out of this mess. Until I'm convinced we have a plan that's going to work, I refuse to support any of it.

You think it's bad now? Wait until next year when burnt-out Barry is cowering under the desk, and all the decisions are being made by the Klingon queen.
