You Have To Wonder

Does Zero actually believe what he said in his speech to today?

Based on what he has done in the last four years, there is no reason to be at all optimistic that anything in that speech will actually be relevant to the policies and proposals coming out of the Executive Branch. After four years you would hope that the White House had figured out that the Republicans have no intention of doing anything that might look like a ‘win’ for this administration.

The House has already indicated that they think that working more than two days a week is cruel, and unless something is done about the filibuster in the Senate, nothing will occur there. Everything is in place to see absolutely nothing done by the US government in the next two years at a minimum.

The really absurd part of this entire event was listening to various and sundry talking heads talking about the total failure to extend an olive branch to the losers. You wonder where these people have been while Zero has been clear-cutting olives groves to present them to the Republicans, only to see them burned.

Does Obama believe his own rhetoric? As time passes, I think not, which is sad, because much of it is good rhetoric. But one cannot make him into something he is not. I voted against Rmoney far more than I voted for Obama. I voted for some (minimal) protection of women’s rights, which would have sunk like a stone if Mitt had seized power. It wasn’t a hard decision, but it certainly had some negative consequences.

I’m trying to figure out why he even ran because there is no indication that he actually enjoys the job. He goes to work, which is a vast improvement over the Shrubbery’s record, and Congressional Republicans, but he doesn’t actually seem to want to do it.

He can run a campaign, but the actually job seems to be a chore, not an avocation.

Joe Biden, the Clintons, and many others like government service, but Obama doesn’t seem comfortable.
