Can we now talk about what a nightmare this is shaping up to be? Sure, I’m disappointed with the election. I would have disappointed with the election if McCain had won also. I’m a pretty strict Constitutionalist. Obama is a very liberal Democrat. Essentially, he stands for everything I’m against. Higher taxes, more hand-outs, less safety.
I’m willing to give the guy a chance. It certainly isn’t looking good, though.
The proposed head of Homeland Security (you know, that little organization that is tasked with securing the homeland) Janet Napolitano has talked tough about clamping down on immigration. That’s a great speech. It’s only a speech, though. Janet has been tasked with governing Arizona and it’s borders. She’s allowed Arizona to be the greatest source of illegal immigrants in the U.S. Where’s the media outcry?
We also have the Commerce Department head nominee, Bill Richardson, who……. wait, he had to drop out in scandal.
Well, there’s always Tim Geithner, nominated to lead the Treasury Department. He’s lauded as a financial genius. Of course, he also tried to bilk the U.S. government out of thousands of dollars by failing to pay taxes. The media (you know, that impartial reporting group) systematically reported that it was an honest mistake, one which he was sorry for. Of course, we now learned that it was intentional and happened numerous times. Nobody cares, though. After all, if he’s good enough for the messiah, he’s good enough for us, right?
We can’t forget the Secretary of State nominee, Hillary Clinton. The skeletons aren’t even in her closet anymore. She publicly asserts that she’ll go as far as she can in the performance of her duties without harming the Nation. Oh, wait. She didn’t say nation. She said her husband’s foundation. She’ll go as far as she can to help the country, providing it doesn’t stop her husband’s gravy train. You remember her husband? Bill Clinton? Impeached President? Disbarred?
I could go on, but why bother? Few of us care. The media doesn’t. The corporations don’t. The public doesn’t appear to.
