During the malaise that was the Jimmy Carter Presidency, the National embarrassment proposed from the Oval office that Americans fight massive increases in energy prices by turning down their thermostats and wearing sweaters. I thought at the time how absurd that plan was as a tonic to a Nation in crisis. Now President Barack Obama has proposed that we all caulk our homes to stimulate the economy and save money. Obama is making it very hard for me to believe that he is on the same planet as the rest of us. Caulk Mr. President?
Why don’t you quit whining about the mess that you fought to take charge of? Hell you spent more than $650 million for the privilege of leading this country. So lead. Ronald Reagan inherited a bigger mess than you did and he rolled up his sleeves and got to work. It was an uphill battle too because the people who caused the mess were in charge of Congress – your fellow democrats. That’s your problem now – Pelosi and Reid don’t have solutions, they are just going to dig you deeper into trouble. Hopefully you will be faced with the same thing that Bill Clinton faced – a hostile Congress in 2010. If you turn pragmatist, the Republicans might just save your presidency. Keep going the way you are and you better get a sweater and join the last failed president, Jimmy Carter. Four years an out. Music to my ears.
