Hmmm..watching this, and listening to his words, echoes of other words come to mind: "Community Action Organizer" -- and especially when he says that he found 'this National Debt, doubled,wrapped in a big bow waiting for me, as I stepped into the Oval Office' I think of these words: "The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (Acorn)"
What has that to do with anything? Well, if you recall, that organization was part and parcel of bringing on the financial fiasco that we now find ourselves in. They bullied financial institutions into granting loans for mortgages to people they knew could not afford them, and had no way of paying for them.
That, and the other shenanigans they pulled to get what they wanted, when they wanted it.
Acorn is earmarked for a big hunk of the stimulus package--something like 5 billion dollars. Yes, that is 'billion' with a 'b.'
Here's an excerpt from a 2008 article written by Stanley Kurtz in National Review Online:
According to Stern, Acorn’s radical agenda sometimes shifts toward “undisguised authoritarian socialism.” Fully aware of its living-wage campaign’s tendency to drive businesses out of cities, Acorn hopes to force companies that want to move to obtain “exit visas.” “How much longer before Acorn calls for exit visas for wealthy or middle-class individuals before they can leave a city?” asks Stern, adding, “This is the road to serfdom indeed."
You'll find the whole article interesting.
It looks like President Obama is still trying to use his community organizing tactics in trying to force this on the American tax payer whether we like it or not..because, after all, as he and Nancy Pelosi have both said, "I won."
If this stimulus package were a book, it could be titled, "Dreams of Obama."
