Not content to scare the American people and Congress into supporting and passing his "stimulus" package last Thursday night, Barack Obama is at it again tonight. In his first prime time news conference the Chosen One jumped out of the chute with apocalyptic language designed to scare the hell out of the public and present himself as the saviour. The main theme of his introductory speech tonight was that a catastrophe will engulf the nation if his economic "recovery" bill isn't passed. A catastrophe! Oy vey! Boy I'm glad we have the next best thing to Jesus Christ sitting in the Oval Office.
Obama sounded as desperate tonight as he did last Thursday. There's no time to actually think about what's in the "stimulus" bill, there's only time to pass it. Remember, catastrophe awaits us if we don't. But the Guru also seemed determined to cushion himself from the fallout in case his economic magic bullet doesn't work. More than once the Messiah whined about the policies of the last eight years and how he inherited the current economic mess. Translation: if this "stimulus" thing doesn't work it's Bush's fault. Nope, no partisanship there. No wonder virtually all Congressional Republicans are against this plan.
Barack Obama is very concerned about something but it's not the poor, unemployed folks in middle America; you know, the ones bitterly clinging to their God and their guns. What the Anointed One is worried about is his place in history. He's not satisfied with being the first Black president, he wants to be a heroic president, too. He wants to be a living legend; he wants to be our salvation. This economic plan is designed to get him there...if it works. Dear Leader feverishly hopes it will but for his sake, not yours or mine. Yep, the Deliverer was desperate again tonight. I hope he stays that way.
