Enough Late Night talk show appearances, enough March madness basketball picks, enough flying around the country to do speeches. Enough words, enough blame, and enough intervention in the private sector. It is time for our president to get a staff in place to create a sense that his administration is at least looking at the operations of our government. And the first order of business is to rescind the “stimulus” package. Next eliminate corporate gains taxes for 5 years, and then cap the federal budget to no growth. Just keep it at the 2008 level for now.
The solution is simple and I feel like a broken record; this is all about trust and confidence. We have a circus atmosphere in Washington DC with no one stepping up to take cabinet positions and the ones that have are tax cheats, doing little to prove they are “experts”. I would be happy with competence at this point. The Fed rate is nearly 0, the government is about to monetize our debt, print a trillion new dollars (1,000,000,000,000)to chase less goods - setting us up for unprecedented inflation, and they are asking us to spend? Are you kidding?
The American people are starting to get it now. We are seeing more people say no to the “stimulus”, no to the “bailouts”, and no to more government borrowing of our children’s future. The American people are starting to wonder why anyone would pay for a Harvard MBA since this administration has the most we have ever seen in our history. And when we watch them running around like children with ADD we are confident about one thing; these people don’t know what they are doing.
We elected a president that doesn’t seem to understand his job is similar to a CEO (Chief Executive Officer). CEO’s are responsible for the strategic and tactical direction of the organization. You can’t do that without a compliment of Executives to implement strategy and you certainly can’t do it if you don’t take the time to sit down and analyze the problem. This is serious business needing an executive that is willing to do some work.
Stay at home this week and at least look like you care about the country Mr. President. At least you will seem to be serious…
