Obama: Government is the Answer

As if we didn't already know that Obama was an anti-American Socialist, recent remarks have confirmed his lack of faith in the American people and his faith in Big Government solutions to problems.  Obama arrived at his first White House news conference with one primary message:  Only Government can fix the economy.

"At this particular moment, with the private sector so weakened by this recession, the federal government is the only entity left with the resources to jolt our economy back into life."

To the extent that Big Government got us into this mess with excessive taxation, overspending, and excessive government regulation, particularly in the financial industry, I'd have to agree with Obama.  Unfortunately, his solution is "more of the same thing that got us into this mess should get us out."  I wonder how much sense that makes.

He also took issue with those of us in the blogosphere (primarily) who have recently criticized FDR and his New Deal policies that, according to a recent study by UCLA, extended the great depression by seven years.  

"They're fighting battles that I thought were resolved a pretty long time ago," he said.

If by that you mean that liberal journalists and historians see FDR as the nations First Messiah and Obama as the Second, then yes, you are right.  Liberals have been "feeling a tingle down their leg" over FDR for decades, in spite of evidence that flies in the face of conventional wisdom. 

Obama insisted that he did not really want to spend billions of dollars of taxpayers' money (yet), but that was what was required.  

"I would love not to have to spend money right now.  That wasn't how I envisioned my presidency beginning..." He said.

Of course, the implication here is that he would loved to have spent it later when he could target the money more toward the socialist liberal humanistic agenda that the Democrats have tried to push in this bill.  He would gladly have traded our current situation for one in which he could spend a trillion dollars on Socialized health care, a larger amount for abortions and planned parenthood, and other liberal, socialist causes.

While his sales pitch was focused on job creation, much of the Pork Barrel Spending Bill avoids job creation.    He said "My initial measure of success is creating or saving 4 million jobs."

Using that standard, he most certainly will be able to claim success no matter what happens, given the numbers of expected job losses predicted by Nancy Pelosi.
