Obama's Cowardice

It takes courage to admit you are wrong. It takes courage to do the right thing, even if doing so gives you no advantage. Ronald Reagan once commented on how much you could accomplish if you didn't care who got the credit for it.

Those truths make it difficult for reasonable people to understand why Barack Obama refuses to do the one or two things that could turn the nation's economic problems around IN A MATTER OF HOURS. Instead, he is content - like Bill Clinton suggests - to wait even two years for a turnaround. To promote that kind of misery is downright un-American.

History shows that tax cuts stimulate the economy and greatly increase the amount of revenue coming in to the Treasury. It works every time it's tried. On the contrary, every time socialism and communism is tried, it fails.

Giving Obama the benefit of the doubt, that is allowing that he isn't promoting the present disaster to increase his and his party's grasp on power, one must conclude that he's refusing to do the right thing - the proven thing - the only cost efficient and effective thing, because it's a conservative idea and when it works the GOP will say, "I told you so."

That's cowardice. And it is such abject cowardice it chills one to consider how he will handle a threat to homeland security.
