commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

President Obama …you to need to stay home for a while..your Congress is scared…..

One could shake their head in disbelief…First Attorney General Eric Holder gets beat up yesterday on the Gitmo five…then today Treasury Secretary Tim Geithners job is asked for by Republicans and some democrats…..And finally Senator Dodd is getting roughed up…..

The thing that is not good, is…all of the people doing the pushing, and shoving are Democrats…all of the people getting pushed, are Democrats too.

While the Democrats control the White House and Capitol Hill….Everyone is still well aware of a few things…..

The unemployment rate has risen to 10.2%, the highest in while, employers are not in a hurry to bring that number down, Two Governors jobs will be in GOP hands come January first..there is a Healthcare Bill on the table, that they will pass, but a lot of people aren’t too happy with it..and the President of the United States, the head Democrat, is off apologizing to people in other countries, who don’t vote in less than a year from now…..

Make no mistake….Instead of crowing that Obama won, and the GOP is dead….There are a lot of scared Democrats out there….And if Holder, Geithner and Dodd have to take the hits…..Oh,well… they don’t really care  about that up on the Hill…..

While I feel President Obama has done pretty good for the last 300 or so days….I still see him as not doing his homework…all politics is local…the two governors that lost a few weeks ago were not really popular with their state’s voters…But the thing that all the seasoned Congressmen and women picked up was that Obama had not coattails at all in the races after lukewarm campaigning for the two….if you put that together with Obama’s conciliatory approach to foreign affairs, and his hands off approach to his domestic programs, you smell trouble….

Presidents don’t really have that much raw power…their power comes from persuasion, threats, and public humiliation…This president has been reluctant to use any power at all, except his media created ‘star power’ , which has slipped away since the day he was elected…..He’s was a smart man at running for president…but so far he hasn’t won too many awards for being president…..

Barack H. Obama needs to come home…he needs to stay home, and huddle with his team on the Hill and have a heart to heart talk….then go back to his handlers, and figure out how to help the Congress, help him get people back to work, how to get private employers to start hiring,  and how to get local democrats re-elected next fall….and while he’s at it..he needs to get a little tougher on the world stage…at least in the media….while we all like that he’s the president (and the people of this planet like him also) that is simply not enough…..

The American President is the ex-facto leader of the World…And while we don’t want step on everyone toes like Bush and Cheney did…it is time for this President to lead…Because his troops are in disarray, and they are scared opf losing their jobs,  just like everyone else.……
