It is becoming increasing difficult to accept the actions being taken these days. Congress continues to plug away at Healthcare Reform and it appears the Democrats will accept nothing but a bill that includes abortion and the public option. Obama states that Healthcare Reform won’t cover abortions but the Senate Majority won’t allow any language in the bill that excludes it. Isn’t that just another way of including it?
Not all is lost. Congress did find a way to spend another $300,000,000.00 on their budget. While we all cut, they continue to spend. So the Administration cut $120 Million from the budget earlier this year and Congress ads it back three-fold.
Now Obama finds that his celebrity is needed in Denmark to win the 2016 Olympics for his beloved Chicago. He will be the first sitting president to ever lobby the International Olympic Committee. With all that is going on in America and the World today, the 2016 Olympics should be listed very low on the list of priorities. It seems to me that Obama will reward anyone who helped in any way to help him get his prominence. I suspect there will be camera’s for him to speak to.
Iran’s Vice President Ali Akbar Salehi, reiterated on Tuesday that the Islamic republic will not discuss its "nuclear rights" at the upcoming meeting with the six world powers in Geneva. Tomorrow that meeting takes place and our loquacious president will attempt to talk the Iranians into cooperating with IAEA goals of non-proliferation. If it is not open to discussion, what’s to discuss? Perhaps he can cozy up to them with his Muslim background and soft peddling sales pitch. Look for some tough sanctions here. Obama will is likely to sanction Q-tips and California Wines. Oh the pain.
Over the last several days I have been inundated with requests for political donations for 2010 campaigns. What is so disturbing about this is that most of these candidates are only mildly better, if at all, that those in office now. Sorry. I am only voting for and supporting those who will truly give the Government back to the people. I am so ready for those people to announce their candidacy. I suspect I am not alone.
