What Will Obama Accomplish In His First 100 Days?
Filed under: — Robert Farrow @ 11:37 pm

by Regina Sztajer

President Barack Obama has been sworn in as the new leader of the free world with much pomp and cheers of millions wishing him well. The problem is Obama has taken upon himself the most dangerous presidency in our nation’s history. The media has fed the people steady propaganda concerning his political greatness. With no experience of running a city or state government and so little time in the Senate do we know what his capabilities are? Can the American people really understand what has been fed to us also as propaganda concerning the economic crisis? Do we understand the economy in the facts and figures mumbo jumble of Alan Greenspan language? If not what does Trillions mean to the average person who every day has a few dollars in their pockets and some loose change to spend ? What we don’t want is a huge federal government, city and state government hungry to spend on pork projects with our tax money so politicians can win re-election because they can say, Look What I Did For You! We also don’t want to be taxed and taxed to fill their kitties while so many are unemployed.

Bi-partisanship is great if we can trust the new administration to put it’s money where it’s mouth is. While the media slammed the opposition during the election Obama accepted the mainstream media’s one sided support. They made him into a media star with change and hope as the watch word while everyone else was nothing to talk about. “It protected him from attack, examination, rumor, fact, his own position, inexperience, and history gleefully promoting him as hope incarnate, a panacea for what ills all the world,”
(www.humanevents.com 1/20/09.)

In the past the media prided itself in being the watchdog of our political process but in this election it deceptively placed Obama on his throne and helped the Democrats walk over the republicans for the majority vote. Mainstream newsprint is on the way out with papers going out of business and politician may in time be hard pressed for support.

Obama has assembled an impressive White House and Cabinet during a failing economy and two wars with larger-than-life Washington geniuses that don’t always succeed. In the 1990′s, Alan Greenspan and Robert Rubin were supposed to manage and repair the economy. Now Rubin is making excuses for being involved in high-risk investments and for helping oversee the very demise of Citigroup which lost $10 billion in the last three months. Greenspan has admitted to Congress that his revered economic philosophy had a flaw and he is blamed for looking away in the face of the housing bubble. Obama’s treasury choice Timothy Geitner forgot to pay his taxes for a couple of years and as president of the New York Fed was involved in the decision to not rescue Lehman Bros. I wonder if he will be approved by the Senate? What type of confidence can we citizens have in him?

Will our national deficit reach $2 Trillion? If so what happens to Social Security and Medicare’s financial status? People are losing jobs and confidence in government while politician decide how to tax us and spend our money. Remember how Rome burned while Nero their Emperor fiddled away? Why should our hard earned tax dollars pay off selfish Wall Street bankers and corporate CEO’s? Power will be with the government not the people if they keep printing money that we have to pay for or we borrow from China.

Obama has big ideas for a stimulus package in the first 100 days!! Will we recognize our nation in a couple of years if we are broke and are a brand new socialist country? Who will watch the store while the Democrats rob us dry and Obama calls all aboard to the train to where we don’t know. Obama the new Teflon king who has a strange cult personality in that he surrounds himself with un-American’s that the media decided we should ignore. He has his own symbols, seals and flags that glower from within a MAOIST sunburst on posters, bumper stickers and T-Shirts. Obamablia to celebrate a politician that has been sainted with the title historic I find is hard to grasp.

Obama’s concept of a presidency is to have enlightened people working with him to reach a consensuses. Wasn’t it President Harry Truman who said the presidency meant the buck stops here with him. It’s his fault if he fails not someone else. Will Obama have the confidence in his own ability to do the job because till now he hasn’t had to make a decision that will affects millions. Is he truly that confident or just naive? Will a Democratic Congress investigate a president of their own party in a tough oversight committee late night meeting? If Congress fails it will be up to the voters to hold his feet to the fire if he doesn’t protect and defend the people of this great nation of ours.
