Yesterday President Obama appeared before the cameras after his fiscal cliff talk with congressional leaders, and he spoke of “ordinary folks.”
Ordinary folks, they do their jobs. They meet deadlines. They sit down and discuss things and then things happen. It there are disagreements they sort through the disagreements. The notion that our elected leadership can’t do the same thing is mind-boggling to them. It needs to stop. So I’m modestly optimistic that an agreement can be achieved. Nobody’s going to get 100% of what they want. But let’s make sure that middle class families and the American economy and in fact the world economy aren’t adversely impacted because people can’t do their jobs.
Ordinary folks also balance our budgets, unlike the Democrats who haven’t even passed a budget in the Senate in over three years, and Obama, whose last budget got a total of zero votes.
I should mention that Obama cut his Hawaiian golf vacation short (costing ordinary folks who pay taxes an extra $100,000-$200,00 in transportation costs) so he could meet with intransigent Republican leaders and push them to agree to the “Obama middle class tax cuts” (Obama’s a big tax cutter, you know) because he cares for us folks so deeply.
Obama reportedly told John Boehner that he will use his inaugural address, and State of the Union to blame the GOP if we go over the cliff – because he has such a connection with ordinary folks all across the nation, he knows we will believe anything he says even if it’s a big fat lie.
I can tell you another thing a lot of ordinary folks are discussing as they “meet their deadlines” and “do their jobs” and that’s the $1 trillion in Obamacare job-killing tax hikes that are hitting on Jan. 1. …A majority of ordinary folks oppose ObamaCare, yet it is being thrust upon them, anyway. Oh well!–And even though most ordinary folks support the right to bear arms, Obama wants to restrict our Second Amendment rights. Truth be told, he doesn’t think we folks should be allowed to own guns at all. (Shhhhh- don’t tell anyone I told you – I don’t think we’re supposed to know that.)–Another thing we ordinary folks are excited about – that raise for Biden, members of Congress, and federal Workers that Obama ordered. I’m so glad that while we in fly over country struggle to pay our Christmas credit card bills, at least the well heeled elites in America’s richest city will continue to prosper. Good for them. That should make the ordinary folks Obama is spamming for donations to pay for his inauguration ceremonies want to fork over even more their hard earned cash to him.
