“Understand where the vision for change comes from, first and foremost. It comes from me. That’s my job.”
– Barack Obama, 11/26/08.
Reports do not mention whether the president-elect then added, “Because I’m the decider. Heh heh.”
For some reason this Bastiat quote keeps coming to mind.
If you are going to quote Bastiat, better go with “The plans differ; the planners are all alike..”
Fuck, I guess this means I am not welcome to send my policy suggestions to Obama ( :
What happens when he coercively shuts down my peaceful plans for change? “Sucks” to be me!
It wasn’t the kind of change we could believe in.
This will support my unprovable assertion that there would have been almost no essential difference in America today had the 2000 election gone the other way. It doesn’t matter who’s conducting the symphony, the composition itself is what sucks.
I’ve made that same point about the 2000 elections before Dennis. I like pointing out this video of Al Gore as a good basis for a “What if…?” story:
From the same article:
” `The last Democratic administration that we had was the Clinton administration,’ Obama added, `So it would be surprising if I selected a treasury secretary who had had no connection with the last Democratic administration. Because that would mean that the person had no experience in Washington whatsoever.’ ”
Oh my. Now that’s a first rate lack of p’s.
