Obama With A Whip

Time to start leading with a whip and a clenched fist.

I am so sick of reading about why The Obama Administration is afraid of this and how the don't want to upset that. They lost and it's time to pay the butcher's bill.

If McCain had won and the republicans had the numbers we have, don't you think...wait, we know how the would lead. And it's not about getting even.

If what we think is true about the economy, if what we know is true about our position in the world, if what we know is true about the condition of our education system, and on and on, we don't have the luxury of massaging hurt egos of the Republicans. Think about it, they have Governors who are actually posturing about the stimulus money. They, politically, don't have a clue. They never have cared about the state of the American people, and now in their frenzy to get power back, they show everyone just who they really are.

Booby Jindal Governor of Louisiana, one of the top states as far as poverty is concerned, I believe, and where folk are still trying to recover from Katrina, ACTUALLY said he might refuse the stimulus money. Keep giving us campaign commercials Booby.

This administration needs to follow their gut and do whats right for all of us. Ignore ignorance. Ignore backward thinking. Ignore the Republican party. Hitch them up to your wagon and run them until they bleed from every orifice.

I'm Back

Someone once said, take a break. Clear your head. Maybe go on a vacation.

Well, I took a break. In the midst of clearing my head so I could plan a vacation, I ran face first into an election. But not just any election, the biggest, most anticipated one since I've been around.

And unless you've been on another planet, you know which one I speak of. While doing my little part, I met a lot of tremendous people. Young and old. Of all colors and creeds. And with the anger and enthusiasm like I haven't seen since an April day in 1968 right before all hell broke loose in Avondale(little hometown reference).

We have done something that many of us never thought they would see. But now that it's done, now that all the swearing in, parades, and dancing is done reality is sinking in.

The rethuglicans are who they always were, only wounded and desperate. So desperate their mouthpiece says he wants to see President Obama fail. Now as much as I knew Bush to be a poser and benefactor of theft, I never wanted him to fail. Knew he would but didn't want it. You see, now we know what the phrase "failure is not an option" means. This is where we end up having a failure for president.

So over the last few weeks we have seen rethugs try their darndest toturn an already too small Stimulus into a relic of their past. Laden with tax cuts for wealthy. Well in a move, the likes of which we are just beginning to see, Obama and the Democratic Senators gave them what Obama had already promised to do. And they have nerve to trumpet their victory

Well now is the time to gear up for the next battle. The battle to rid our counrty of these relics of the past. Time to send them packing, never to return. For in the last few weeks they have shown themselves to not have the best interest of the people. So in my opinion, it's time for them to disappear.

Electing Obama was step one. The next step is making rethugs a footnote in history. And I say the sooner the better.
