OMG! Begging is Unbecoming of a President of the United States, Obama!
This is sad. REAL sad. You know it's bad when Obama has to plead to his OWN party to please spend more money. See, what Mr OMG! doesn't realize is that much of Congress is scared of losing their jobs this year, unlike our dear president who has two more years of job security unless he really bumbles the gig and gets impeached. So he can spend like this knowing he probably won't get to a second term anyway; meanwhile, the guys he's crying to might lose their jobs this fall.
President Obama urged reluctant lawmakers Saturday to quickly approve nearly $50 billion in emergency aid to state and local governments, saying the money is needed to avoid "massive layoffs of teachers, police and firefighters" and to support the still-fragile economic recovery.
In a letter to congressional leaders, Obama defended last year's huge economic stimulus package, saying it helped break the economy's freefall, but argued that more spending is urgent and unavoidable. "We must take these emergency measures," he wrote in an appeal aimed primarily at members of his own party.
And where is that stimulus that totally fixed the economy?! What happened to the awesome recovery we're supposedly in the midst of? What about that 10,000 DOW that seemed to have cojones made from airplane-grade steel?
