Active v passive malfeasance
Here are two scenarios. Tell me which one you think is more apt when it comes to what Obama and the Dems are doing to health care and the economy.
Scenario one: A child falls off of a lakeside pier with only a brother who doesn't know how to swim. The child ends up perishing because the brother didn't know how to swim.
Scenario two: The same as above, only the brother does know how to swim, but does nothing.
Scenario three: Same as either one or two. However, this time the brother chooses not throw the life preserver hanging on one of the poles on the pier but instead throws the drowning child a weighted vest, which plunges the child into further jeopardy knowing full well what will happen.
I've spent a lot of time in Democratic circles and know full well that Dems know of many solutions that would help make health care more accessible, fix the housing situation, and provide jobs for the struggling economy. So right off the bat I can rule out scenario one. That's leaves either two or three. If you look at TARP--which Obama almost single handedly kept alive with his whipping for it--and the current health care bills, its looking more and more like these folks are trying to put us in further jeopardy.
As long as we stick our heads in the sand and pretend that we are in scenario one with respect to the Dems, nothing is going to change. Change begins with accountability, not living in a happy dance fantasy world.
