What a welcome change to feel like someone is running the country instead of running it into the ground.Whether it's creating commissions for women and girls, ordering the investigation of President Bush's use of signing statements, or jamming a huge stimulus package through Congress, the man is working his tail off. And he seems to be loving every minute of it. It's almost as though our president was born to do exactly what he's doing. He's leading, and boy, is that refreshing.But the point, I guess, is this: President Obama is attacking our country's problems on several fronts. He's got ambitious ideas on how to solve them, and he communicates a sense of calm and confidence to the rest of us as he goes about his business. Will all his ideas work? Of course not. But if you throw enough stuff at the wall, some of it will stick.
And at least I don't go to bed at night worried that I'll wake up in the morning to find out we're about to invade someone.
No, I go to bed at night worried that I'll wake up in the morning to find out someone's about to invade us.
And that is my criticism - all Obama has been doing is "throwing enough stuff at the wall" rather than forming long-term plans.
You know what sticks? Shit does. Pardon my language.
