Unfortunately, that light is a train heading straight for the US economy. If this guy is elected president it will be a complete train wreck.
Obama gave us a glimpse into his bold plans of change today. He plans to spend $210 billion to revitalize the economy and create lots of "green" jobs. Excuse me, but where in the Constitution does it say that the government is supposed to create jobs? Businesses create jobs, entrepreneurs create jobs. Governments don't creat jobs, they create bureacracy and debt.
He also plans to start some sort of infrastructure improvement fund with a special government bank. And let's not forget about his national healthcare plan. He didn't say he'll eliminate any existing government programs. So, we'll still have the Social Security mess and the Medicare mess that we can't pay for, in addition to all of his new goodies.
But don't worry, he says that it's all paid for. He'll end the Iraq war and pay for it with that. He'll end President Bush's tax cuts and pay for it with that. Then he'll tax evil rich people and pay for it with that. Unfortunately, his definition of rich is basically a family with two working parents. He just won't tell you that.
The sad thing is, the media won't give him any scrutiny. Did you hear that last night Chris Matthews said he got a tingly feeling in his leg after hearing Obama's speech. Kind of creepy if you ask me. But sure, he'll play hard ball with Obama. Yeah, right.
