President Obama Speaks More Bluntly Than Ever
Whoa! Don’t get him started!
I’m not sure who the President was referring to — probably the red states — when he said:
“It is like you are in a time warp. It is like you are looking across 50 years into a country that has missed 40 years or 50 years of progress.”
OOOOHHHH!!!! A little harsh, but if the shoe fits…
After that — presumably talking about the medieval nightmare that awaits this country if we don’t make some changes soon — he said:
“If a country can’t feed its people effectively, if it can’t make anything of any use to anybody, if it has no exports other than weapons…If it can’t deliver on any indicators of well-being… for its people… then you’d think you’d want to try something different. There are certain things that just don’t work and what they are doing doesn’t work.”
OUCH!!! But hey, it needed to be said. If we are ever going to bring ourselves out of this downward spiral, it’ll take this kind of brutal self-assessment to get us motivated. This is a good beginning.
