Can Someone Please Euthanize The Obama Administration....

Updated on June 11, 2011

Can Someone Please Euthanize The Current Obama Administration….

Watching President Obama attempt to tackle the current, spate of economic problems is like watching opponents being mercilessly pulverized by Mike Tyson in his boxing heyday. But unlike the individuals who suffered at the hands of ‘Iron Mike,’ much of the country is feeling the pangs from a President who seems not-ready-for-economic prime-time. I will not belabor here the economic specifics of our woes… because we all are privy to them by now. It is bad though when you see that even the President’s initial economic team has abandoned his administration… with most of them releasing the typical statement about returning to the private sector - ironically, to teach economics at some prestigious college.

Yes, I know the mantra I am hearing and will continue to hear: that President Obama inherited a terrible fiscal situation – but isn't it the reason why he was elected? The rhetorical question that begs itself is… our economic, dire situation unique - of course not… because President Reagan inherited a similar situation from - the still campaigning to rehabilitate my failed Presidency - Jimmy carter. Unlike many Republicans who are secretly wishing that we remain in these economic doldrums, so as to regain the White house… I am not one of them because there are literally millions of lives at stake; their struggles run the economic gamut from families being torn apart to the rampant suicides in certain sectors of the country – change we can indeed live with, huh?

You also know things are bad when Democratic heavyweights like James Carville are starting to parrot Glenn Beck – the latter many Democrats have deemed crazy – by echoing the disturbing warning that if there continue to be a scarcity of job creation, that we might have riots on our streets… akin to what we have seen in Greece. Whatever happened to the smartest men in the room, as was referred to President Obama and the men and women in his administration? Typical of the age we are living in, loyalty only goes as far as fair-weathered friends can see success – that is why so many of President Obama’s economic team has fled like ‘rats’ on a sinking ship.

It is true our back is against the proverbial wall, and that, perhaps, the James Carvilles and the Glenn Becks are anticipating the ‘fat lady’ to start singing momentarily; however, there is still time to save our sinking ship by emulating the fiscal policies of President Clinton, a Democrat, since, that I am almost certain, that President Obama would not want to give any ‘props’ to a successful Republican President, like Reagan. Personally, I do not care… who get us out of this mire clay - I just want our President to signal the economic S.O.S, with the attendant fiscal policies. If this prudent action is not done forthwith, then the collective must humanely euthanize the Obama Administration via the ballot.

      Yep, I have a feeling that anyone who recommends anything he sees as a "Republican" idea must go; the rest of them just don't know what they're doing. And we all pay the price.

      Spot on KK Trainor - thr economic situation is bad because many of his fiscal team is leaving the President, which is an important clue that things are bad or maybe the President is not listening to members of his eco-team as they maybe making recommendations that are akin to Reaganomics, etc.

      Very nicely done Verily.

      I remember watching the Sunday talk shows last weekend and seeing Austan Goolsbee trying to justify the current numbers and telling my husband "I bet he wishes he could just quit his job right now." And on Monday that's what he did. It's not easy to try to put a good face on disaster, and his boss just isn't making the right decisions. Whoever is really making the decisions up there in the White House needs to change course and get people working again. Or you're right, there may be serious consequences not only to the admin. at election time, but to the people struggling to survive in this awful quagmire we're stuck in. Desperate people can do pretty crazy things and that's the last thing we need.
