Hope, Not Fear?

February 6, 2009

Remember when that was Mr. Obama’s mantra? You know, right up until he became President? Well, he’s afraid now, plenty afraid, and the only cure is more cowbell lots of your (and your descendants’) hard earned money for various democrat policies.  A few samples of Mr. Obama bringing the fear:

Washington Post editorial 5 February 2009:

By now, it’s clear to everyone that we have inherited an economic crisis as deep and dire as any since the days of the Great Depression.

And if nothing is done, this recession might linger for years. Our economy will lose 5 million more jobs. Unemployment will approach double digits. Our nation will sink deeper into a crisis that, at some point, we may not be able to reverse.

Remarks by the President on Executive Compensation 4 February 2009:

The economic crisis we face is unlike any we’ve seen in our lifetime.

A failure to act, and act now, will turn crisis into a catastrophe and guarantee a longer recession, a less robust recovery, and a more uncertain future. Millions more jobs will be lost. More businesses will be shuttered. More dreams will be deferred.

Remarks by the President to Department of Energy Staff 5 February 2009:

Crisis could turn into catastrophe for families and businesses across the country.

*****************

You know, I mentioned the day after the Inauguration what I expected from Mr. Obama, but  I have to say I didn’t expect hysterical panic. He was so good during the campaign at promising everyone peace and unicorns, nd how quickly THAT facade has slipped. Times ARE hard, I’m not denying that–I just prefer to see my President acting like a MAN instead of waving his arms above his head yelling “OMG! We’re all gonna die!”

And yes, President Bush did the exact same thing before the first, less bloated TARP bill. The world was going to end if we didn’t pass that one, either. Then we sold our souls to Socialism, and acted surprised that the economy didn’t recover.
