HAS OBAMA LOST BOB HERBERT? “The Obama administration and Democrats in general are in trouble because they are not urgently and effectively addressing the issue that most Americans want them to: the frightening economic insecurity that has put a chokehold on millions of American families. . . . Instead of focusing with unwavering intensity on this increasingly tragic situation, making it their top domestic priority, President Obama and the Democrats on Capitol Hill have spent astonishing amounts of time and energy, and most of their political capital, on an obsessive quest to pass a health care bill.”He already has himself knee deep (neck deep) into the health care debacle, but you'd think that Obama would at least make jobs and the economy his next huge push - at least for show, if nothing else. Certainly, he has said he would, but since when has his words been reliable as representing reality?

But, it is not only health care that is distracting him from focusing on the economy (and I'm talking about things other than raising taxes and spending our money) Alas, today I read this headline: Obama to push climate change in White House meeting
The headline speaks for itself. Maybe he senses that if he waits any longer, the controversies and increased skepticism about the facts surrounding the climate change theories will erase his chance to socialize the entire world with Cap and Trade. Does he not see, however, that the more he rejects the will of the American people, the more he is going to antagonize his fellow democrats (thanks to the town halls!) who are key to his transforming of America (and the world)?
