I haven’t had a chance to read the entirity of President Obama’s comments in Wakarusa, Indiana, yesterday, but I did come upon this chilling note:
We will pass reform by the end of this year because the American people need it.
No, not because we want it, but because The One believes we need it, and we’re going to get it, whether we like it or not, if He has His way.
The arrogance of this man is incredible.
Now, I understand, that if a guy’s elected saying he’s going to do something, he kind of has an obligation to try to get it done, and I can’t really fault him for trying. But Obama knows as well as we do that he put forth an image of himself as being a moderate and centrist who would never take over and Stalinze the entire health care industry (not to mention the auto industry and banking industry, and I could go on…) Not to mention that at this point, 52% of voters think his idea is a turkey.
The pomposity displayed by this man who famously said to the faces of (also-elected, mind you) Republican Congressmen, “I won, [so] I will trump you.” Is as staggering as the media’s aversion to point it out.
This is only punctuated more by what he said yesterday to MSNBC after his talk in Indiana:
I think at some point, some time in September, we are just going to have to make an assessment.
The “assessment” to which he’s referring is whether or not to even bother working with Republicans in ramming through his take-over.
Fun, sometimes, to go back in time (only 10 months ago, almost to the date) when the LA Times pilloried W as being “Bush the arrogant” for, among other things, having
“embarked on the most profound expansion of the federal government’s role in the private economy since the Depression.”
I’ve searched, but cannot find any instance where the Times‘ editorial board offered such an assessment of BHO. If anybody knows of such, please pass it along in the comments.
