GOOD LUCK, MR PRESIDENT
In his acceptance speech BO said –
“You elected us to focus on your jobs, not ours. And in the coming weeks and months, I am looking forward to reaching out and working with leaders of both parties to meet the challenges we can only solve together: reducing our deficit, reforming our Tax Code, fixing our immigration system, freeing ourselves from foreign oil. We’ve got more work to do.”
Let us hope that the President was telling the truth. And let us hope that when he says “reforming our Tax Code” he means real substantive reform.
The problem is that, even if Obama is truly sincere about “reaching out and working with leaders of both parties”, and I have no reason to doubt he is, the leaders of both parties may not be as ready to “reach out” and work together.
The leaders of both parties that the President speaks about are the same idiots who have been leading the worst and most incompetent and ineffective Congress in history for the past four years. And, with most incumbents being re-elected, there is no indication that Congress will not continue to be incompetent and ineffective, and that the idiots on Capitol Hill will not continue to be incapable of compromise or independent thought.
I wish you luck, Mr. President. But I expect you already know that you will need lots of it when dealing with the idiots in Congress.
