All the News That's Fit to be Tied

I have an axe to grind, but unlike the New York Times, I freely admit it.

Roll Over Obama

If any bi-partisan ship was intended in the so-called stimulus package there wasn't very much. Most Republicans, except for a treasonous few, held their ground and did not take part in the rolling of the President. Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi took Obama for the ride of his career and he doesn't even know it, unless his team does what the Congress did not do: read the bill. It contains every Democrat program that has not been able to pass the House or Senate since Ronald Reagan and will turn back some of the major reforms made by previous Presidents such as welfare reform, border security and immigration enforcement. In addition, already the bill is being criticized for not being enough to do the job. Some are saying at least another billion or two will be required in the coming months. America is being done a great disservice with the passing of this bill and it is very likely to aggravate a very unstable economy. Despite all of this gloomy news the Super Bowl and the Daytona 500 were sold out, all the mall parking lots are full and every restaurant is crowded. How is this possible unless someone is not telling the truth or people are just refusing to accept what they are being told?
