Democrats Upset with Do-Nothing Obama

I’m shocked! And amazed! Well no, that’s not true. I’m not shocked, amazed or even vaguely surprised. It’s the Democrats who are shocked, impatient, upset, and annoyed. It seems the President-elect Obama is doing nothing to “inject himself” into the current economic crisis.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Democrats are growing impatient with President-elect Barack Obama’s refusal to inject himself in the major economic crises confronting the country. Obama has sidestepped some policy questions by saying there is only one president at a time. But the dodge is wearing thin. “He’s going to have to be more assertive than he’s been,” House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank, D-Mass., told consumer advocates Thursday.

Frank, who has been dealing with both the bailout of the financial industry and a proposed rescue of Detroit automakers, said Obama needs to play a more significant role on economic issues.

“At a time of great crisis with mortgage foreclosures and autos, he says we only have one president at a time,” Frank said. “I’m afraid that overstates the number of presidents we have. He’s got to remedy that situation.” — By JIM KUHNHENN, Associated Press Writer (Dec 4, 11:14 PM EST)

Well Gahh-Lee, as Gomer Pyle would remark. Mr. Obama is essentially voting “present.” And Spanky’s Gang is getting impatient? Why? This is what Mr. Obama has done for almost his entire 10-minute career in Washington.

What’s truly pathetic, but which also shows the ominous truth of what likely will happen in the next few years, is that nobody really ever expected Obama to do a damn thing. Oh sure, the voters maybe proved they’re stupid enough to believe the President can do what Obama campaigned on and “promised.”

But nobody in the real world or in the long-term political scene of Washington actually pays much attention to Mr. Obama. He’s been elected as a do-nothing President, to stay out of Spanky and her Gang’s way. With an all-liberal Congress, Excutive branch, and likely Judicial branch, liberals can pretty much do whatever they want.

Fancy that, Obama not actually stepping in with any applicable solutions to anything. He’s busy crafting his grand schemes of what he’s gonna do about healthcare, gonna do about this, gonna do about that. As someone I know likes to say, it’s a bad case of gonna-rhea: “gonna do this, gonna do that.”
