Mr. President, Please Listen And In The Words Which Encouraged Harry Truman, "Give 'Em Hell"

Post by Guest on Wed Aug 17, 2011 7:18 am

Mr. President, the country we all love is hurting enormously, with huge unemployment. Isn't it possible to create work programs like the WPA (Works Progress Administration) and spend monies on infrastructure for bullet trains, repairing roads and bridges that are falling down and other truly needed capital programs by creating what we don't have now -- a separate capital budget (which states and cities have) that would permit borrowing and pay the cost of a capital item over its expected life, instead of maintaining the single unified budget which the U.S. currently has? I am not an economist, but shouldn't that be considered? The need for jobs with our unemployment rate in excess of 9 percent is universally accepted.

People everywhere are asking why don't you call the Congress back from their unearned vacations to address the huge problems now facing the nation. You can still win back the support of the public by publicly setting forth in detail your plan to address these enormous problems. It should be a plan fashioned not on consensus, but your plan, and if your political adversaries oppose it, so be it. Then you must go over their heads to the vast public, appealing to its common sense, asking them to support you.

Mr. President, Please Listen And In The Words Which Encouraged Harry Truman, "Give 'Em Hell" by Ed Koch, Former Mayor, New York City

Declare a state of national emergency to deal with the economic crisis
http://www.change.org/petitions/declare-a-state-of-national-emergency-to-deal-with-the-economic-crisis

We can whine and whimper all we want about wanting the President to grow up and act Presidential, but Obama is no FDR or Harry Truman and doesn't even measure up to Jimmy Carter. Why do Republicans and Democrats hate Obama? Because Obama is a wimp. Obama's idea of creating jobs will consist of Free Trade Agreements with Panama, South Korea and Colombia, which will ship even more jobs out of the U.S. Obama is a sick joke. Obama is making the rich even richer and is driving Middle Class Americans into poverty. Who cares what party Obama is in? Obama does not act like a Democrat. Obama is the lap dog of the Tea Party. All they have to do is ask and Obama obeys their every wish. Ed Koch is just as disillusioned with Obama as most Democrats. Obama, wake up. Spit up the Tea Party cool aid and stop playing games.

Then why does the Tea Party hate (and I mean HATE!) him? It's not because he's a "wimp".

they shouldn't hate him, he is the best friend they have! He evn turns against his own party to try and save his butt. But yet some on here who are narrow minded can't see or admit what he is doing! He is talking cuts to entitlements and also he need to cut spending by 4 trillion in 10 yrs. Isn't that what the tea party and repubs. want! WOW! You guys bash repubs. and yet defend Obama for being a republican! He has yielded to everything they set forth in the budget debate deal! He has caved to repubs. everytime. And the tea party! He is playing bth sides and you guys defend it!
