The President [also] Punts

In Opinion, Political Critique on February 17, 2011 at 8:41 am

Republicans and some of the political commentators tell us, as if we didn’t notice, that the Obama administration acted irresponsibly in not addressing entitlements in its recently submitted buget.

My recommendation:  Get over it.  Let the president abstain.  And, Congress, pass a budget that reforms the budget process, upends entitlements, eliminates unconstitutional programs and agencies, maintains proper levels of defense spending and balances the budget within, pick a number, 3 years.  Tell the president, “we’re sorry you’ve chosen to take a pass, but we’ve decided to govern without you.  OH, we’re going to need your signature in about a month, so stay close to DC.  Until then, hit ’em straight and long.”

Or resign and let us replace you – tomorrow.

There are only two reasons a given politician isn’t working obsessively to fix the budget process and reduce the national debt.  Mr. Congressman, Mr. Senator, show us which you are – either not intellectually qualified to figure out how to do this or not serious about wanting to do it.

Either way, we want someone else doing your job if you can’t or won’t.
