  • Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

    When the government's boot is on your throat, whether it is a left boot or a right boot is of no consequence.

    We have a system that increasingly taxes and subsidizes nonwork.

    Those of us who manage the public dollars will be held to account to spend wisely, reform bad habits, and do our business in the light of day, because only then can we restore the vital trust between a people and our government.

    My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the world. I hope you'll join with me as we try to change it.

We Need Substance, Not Symbolism

Less than 100 hundred hours until The Immaculate Inauguration, and we are now being bombarded with the latest spin/talking points: Barack Hussein Obama’s hero is Abraham Lincoln.

I can certainly see the symbolism; after all, BHO will soon be American’s first bi-racial president, and Lincoln was instrumental in freeing the slaves. But symbolism is no substitute for substance, and all of this Obamagasm doesn’t really matter. What DOES matter is how BHO will govern over the next 4 years. Right now, there are many more questions than answers.

Will BHO fix America’s problems, or create more? Will his primary focus be on the United States, or will he be more worried about how the US is PERCEIVED by the rest of the world?

Will this sudden fixation with Lincoln lead to a fundraising opportunity via the Lincoln Bedroom? If so, will we see a guest list?

How many campaign promises will not see the light of day? (for those of the Obama voters suckered in by the promises of tax cuts, it’s been shelved)

How long before BHO is tested with a crisis?  Along those same lines, how soon before poor Joe Biden needs to be muzzled AGAIN?

Surely, BHO has a daunting road ahead, and eating like Abe Lincoln on Inauguration Day means absolutely zilch in the grand scheme of things.

I only hope that the next 4 years is not  Welcome Back, Carter.
