Go ahead. Tell the White House what you think.

You can bet if you’re against it will fall on deaf ears, but they did ask for feedback on the stimulus bill.

Here’s the link.

    For those of you keeping score on the Obameter, maybe you can explain why this one is rated ‘No Action’.

    No. 34: Enforce pay-as-you-go (PAYGO) budget rules
    “Obama believes that a critical step in restoring fiscal discipline is enforcing pay-as-you-go (PAYGO) budgeting rules which require new spending commitments or tax changes to be paid for by cuts to other programs or new revenue.”

    A little history…

    Jan. 8th, 2009
    WASHINGTON – President-elect Barack Obama urged Congress Thursday to work with him “day and night, on weekends if necessary” to approve the largest taxpayer-funded stimulus ever, warning in almost apocalyptic terms that a dire economic future was certain without it.

    Feb. 4th
    “A failure to act, and act now, will turn crisis into a catastrophe and guarantee a longer recession, a less robust recovery, and a more uncertain future,” Obama said in his prepared remarks.”

    Feb. 5th
    Obama also reiterated his contention that inaction is not an option, saying that if the legislation is not enacted quickly “an economy that is already in crisis will be faced with catastrophe.”

    Feb. 6th
    “This is not some abstract debate,” he said during an address to employees at the Energy Department. “The time for talk is over. The time for action is now.”

    Feb. 9th
    He (Pres. Obama ) said the recession has left the nation so weak that only the federal government can “jolt our economy back to life.” And he declared that failure to act swiftly and boldly “could turn a crisis into a catastrophe.”

    “The party now is over,” he said.

    From Obama’s own web page:

    (1) SUNLIGHT BEFORE SIGNING: Too often bills are rushed through Congress and to thepresident before the public has the opportunity to review them. As president, BarackObama will not sign any non-emergency bill without giving the American public anopportunity to review and comment on the White House website for five days. Inaddition to ensuring that the public has the ability to review legislation, the sunlight willhelp ensure that earmarks tucked into appropriations bills are exposed. And Obama willsign legislation in the light of day without attaching signing statements that undermine
    the legislative intent.

  3. Mr President:

    Your lack of tact and respect for our sister country Great Britain is completely unacceptable. Are you for real? They come bearing historic gifts of significance and you offer him 25 “classic” American movies on DVD?!!??!

    They can’t even view the DVDs you gave them since their power grid is based on DC not AC…have you never traveled to Europe before?

    Are you the worlds biggest tool or just that green that you don’t even know how to respect our closest Ally who has troops fighting with us side by side around the world.

    What are you going to do next? Meet with the President of Iran and offer him a State Dinner or a night in the Lincoln Room of the White House.

    I’m glad I didn’t vote for you. I’m glad I didn’t vote for McCain…I’m only sorry that America didn’t have anyone other than a “celebrity” to put in the White House.

    Mr President, you owe Mr. Gordon Brown and the people of Great Britain an apology. Until then I will not honor your name with the title President in the company I keep.

    You have shamed us and appear to be a better dressed, smoother talking political talking head that is more or less no better than the last one we had for eight years.

    You can bet I am going to vote in 2012, and it is a vote to bounce your ass out of the White House and get us someone who not only has an IQ but some social grace as well.

    Good Lord Man…speak with your State Department and learn a few things before you make us not only the ass of the Democratic party but of the world!

    One technical correction on electricity. The United Kingdom uses 230 volt AC at 50 hz, compared to 110 volt AC at 60 hz for the US. Neither is DC.

    The issue is not electricity but the television image standard. The UK standard is PAL-I instead of the NTSC/ATSC used in the US. However, many videos are produced in multiple formats and it’s not clear which format was given.

    Not to apologize for a (gasp!) democrat, but if the gift was a diamond encrusted platinum whatsit, the republicans would be complaining about out of control spending, etc. After all, they DID lose TWO wars against us!

  5. It’s alive!

    To think, I have a post already to put up tomorrow on this very issue. See you then.
