I Find it Interesting....

That when I see Barack Obama on TV, I really don't get the sense that he's the President. He's just this celebrity guy who totally whacked my TV schedule by bumping American Idol.

That the Obama administration is FOREVER on my TV trying to convince me that "this is a process. We're going to make mistakes. That's part of seeing what works and what doesn't." And then, in the next breath, they slam the Bush administrations for the mistakes they made.

That Barack Obama got himself elected with a platform built on fear -- and is now having to assuage that fear by interrupting my TV schedule over and over.

That Barack Obama got himself elected by convincing all the under-achievers (as well as my dear mis-guided over-achiever friends -- you know who you are! :-)) in America that it was time for them to get a handout. That it was time for the government to take better care of them -- and now he's going to raise taxes and limit the amount of tax credit you get from charitable giving.

That makes a lot of sense.

I don't think he "gets it" that many, many wealthy people give as much as they do because of the tax credit. That for an awful lot of those people it's not because it's the Christian thing to do.

I also don't think he knows that we have a team of brilliant, giving, hard-working people who are striving to help find a CURE for breast cancer. A CURE that won't be cheap. A CURE that depends on charitable giving!!!

I have to say, when he was elected in November I was bracing myself for eight years of a decline toward socialism. Now I don't think that's going to happen. He has ABSOLUTELY no clue what he is doing. He is in way over his head and is pushing his socialistic plans on us so fast and so hard you're about to hear a giant "NO!" from Democrats and Republicans alike.

3.75 more years, baby.

p.s. One more thing.... Obama has been quoted as saying this change will be fairer to lower-income families that make charitable contributions and don't get the same deductions. Here's my question.... Would those be the same families that don't pay taxes because of their tax bracket? Or would those be the people who don't do itemized deductions? I don't know the answer, but I'm gonna try to find it out!!
