Bama in a Box

“If we can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people, under the pretense of taking care of them, they must become happy.” –Thomas Jefferson

It seems that our new president’s efforts to socialize the country and make us the loyal followers of same may have begun to turn the tide. While on the campaign trail, he promised transparency, no increase in taxes, free healthcare, a cleaner environment and apparently a chicken in every pot.

Well, it looks like not only is the public not buying it and perhaps having a bit of buyer’s remorse – even the rank and file are starting to bristle. Five months into his term and two dozen bills signed and hope and change ain’t sounding quite so appetising anymore.

Although, what did we expect from a man who was completely unqualified to do the job? Miracles? I have a feeling the Potomac isn’t going to be parting any time soon.

Hell, even Bill Mahr thinks Obama should be a little more like Bush.

And a little less like him:

“We have the greatest opportunity the world has ever seen, as long as we remain honest — which will be as long as we can keep the attention of our people alive. If they once become inattentive to public affairs, you and I, and Congress and Assemblies, judges and governors would all become wolves.” — Thomas Jefferson

Perhaps ol’ Thom Jefferson was onto something? Could be.

  1. It’s been eons since anyone from any country actually upheld their word. Miracles? We’re not looking for miracles – just a bit of honesty and integrity, that’s all (and certainly, don’t look to MY country for any sort of example – the apple doesn’t fall far from the BUSH around here.)

    Hey Kat,
    It’s been eons since anyone from any country actually upheld their word.

    Yes, but does that excuse people for not doing it/being it? Just because others haven’t I don’t see it as a justifyer for someone else not to. Besides, wasn’t that what this dude was all about – honesty and integrity and keeping his word? I didn’t put those words in his mouth, he did. And how does one maintain honesty and integrity if they don’t keep their word – personally I can’t reconcile that.

    And I’m sorry you feel that way about your country – but I have to say that I find it a bit disingenuous that people can continue to blame and blasphem Bush for everything (even things he had nothing to do with) but when there is the slightest implication that Obama has done something it’s okay, or somehow justified, no matter what it is.

  3. Hi Annie,

    Come on! Cut our President and Leader For Life some slack! Surely you know He is a clean, well spoken, black man and, therefor, can do no wrong. Besides, you know how slowly Government works, so you need to give Him at least 8 years to screw up the country before complaining.

    Hey Grit,
    Well it’s not that I wouldn’t like to cut the dude some slack but I just don’t have that kind of time. Besides, didn’t he say the time for change was now? 😉

  5. Be careful ~M you say blowup and Obama in the same sentence and you could end up sharing a room with John Hinkley :mrgreen:

    Aw John’s out on probation, no worries. I mean all he did was try to hurt a Republican, that’s not a crime in this administration. 🙄

    A ping-back, yes, and thanks, too, for the link. Nice post. And Jefferson’s words continue to ring true as they remind us to be ever vigilant against those who would steal our liberty. That’s the price of freedom!

    – JOS

    Well thank you kindly and you’re welcome too. Yup, ol’ Thom Jefferson was awesome accurate in his predictions I’m afraid.

  9. Well, if we’re going to start dividing up blame, Obama’s had just five months compared to Bush’s eight years plus other prior administrations. (The economy didn’t suddenly tank on January 20, for example.) It’s still way too soon to either blame or credit Obama for much of anything.

    I disagree 30. And this post wasn’t talking about Bush or prior administrations – simply Obama’s actions and the impact they have had thus far. You may not want to judge any of it yet, but personally I don’t think we have the luxury of time.
