Reporting to his board of directors…
But I’d really like you to be challenged by something BEFORE you watch the speech tonight.
Who’s in charge?
That’s it. It’s a simple question. I know, I get it.
If President Obama comes out tonight talking about how he’s so handicapped because of some stupid excuse like, “the mess the last administration left me,” you need to be thinking to yourself, “WHO is in charge?”
See like it or not… we are.
You and me.
Obama’s our employee, our grunt, he does the work we hire him to do.
If he takes the “I’m going to blame my colossal failure of a first year on someone else” approach tonight, ask yourself, “Would I accept that from an employee?”
If he takes the “I’mmmmmm the one who got elected, and it’s mmyyyyyy administration that’s in charge right now” tone, ask yourself again, “Who’s in charge?”
The truth is President who serve with humility, get the most done… it’s just the plain truth of the matter. Yes they have to make hard decisions (something this guy was barely able to do after he had made the decision and then had 9 cabinet meetings to merely affirm his own decision.) But at the end of the day, the President that serves under the realization that is there by our good will, and for our good pleasure, understands his commitment SHOULD be to the very best for the welfare and future of America.
Allowing massive 10% unemployment to continue to linger, allowing more and more families to be under-employed (now roughly one in five), and allowing more and more punitive measure to be put in place that would STOP the creation of jobs and the expansion of personal liberty and prosperity is morally WRONG.
Especially when there are known solutions that could be engaged, and the pain could start to be healed.
Mr. Obama gave himself a solid B+ on his first year in office. Such delusion is laugh worthy until you realized he was being serious.
Tonight when he steps up and claims that the State of our Union is strong… ask yourself, “Who’s in charge?”
The answer to that question, will finally give us some clarity on where we go from here…
