Obama accuses the Republicans of holding recovery hostage. This is a nakedy dishonest claim that the public will see right through. The Democrats control the executive branch and congress -- the Republicans can't hold anything hostage, except with the filibuster, but the Democrats can get around this if they really believe another stimulus is necessary -- they can get a few Republicans to go along.
The fact is that Obama is using this as a political tactic for the midterm elections, which shows a level of unseriousness in the president during an economic crisis which disqualifies him from being considered for another term. It's sophomoric and indicative of a mind not worthy of the highest office. If we're going to have a powerful State and a powerful president, which I believe we need neither, we should at least find men and women with intellectual pop and depth of character.
I'm beginning to believe that no one under the age of 55 is mentally, spiritually or emotionally ready to be president.
