The View from Olympus

Amy Alkon sees remarks from our hero and offers her advice:

Obama told the several dozen donors that he was offering them his "view from the Oval Office." He faulted the economic downturn for Americans' inability to "think clearly" and said the burden is on Democrats "to break through the fear and the frustration people are feeling." [Politico]

My suggestions? Resign from office and take the Republicans with you.

I think this sort of patronizing attitude from Obama is only going to further annoy all us slow-thinking 'Muricans out here as we ponder the number of fingers and toes it takes to count up to 3 trillion.  Maybe in between putts the President can turn to his "view from the Oval Office" and see how many people are flipping him the bird.

As for the Republicans, I would really like to see a serious challenge to the supposedly inevitable coronation of John Boehner as Speaker of the House. I think he needs to know that if he doesn't aggressively pursue repealing, defunding and deregulating all the crap liberals have put into place in the past few years, he's going to be facing an extremely angry rebellion of his own, inside and outside of Congress.

  1. I'd like to see a viable third party. The libertarians need to stop running fruits and nuts and charisma-free candidates.
