Urgency? What Urgency?...

on Sunday, February 15, 2009

Remember Barack Obama telling America how urgent it was that we pass this thing, with members of Obama's cabinet claiming we were within "mere days" of complete collapse?..


After pushing Congress for weeks to hurry up and pass the massive $787 billion stimulus bill, President Obama promptly took off for a three-day holiday getaway.

Obama arrived at his home in Chicago on Friday, and treated wife Michelle to a Valentine's Day dinner downtown last night. The couple was spotted leaving upscale Table Fifty-Two, which specializes in Southern cuisine, with the first lady toting what appeared to be a doggie bag.

The president plans to spend the Presidents' Day weekend in the Windy City, and is not expected to sign the bill until Tuesday, when he travels to Denver to discuss his economic plan.
We just got played by our own government. Obama, Pelosi, and Reid told America that this bill was so immediately needed that they ended up forcing Congress to vote on it without even reading it because time was so vital. But now that they got what they wanted, they can take all the time they need to finalize they bill that they obviously falsely claimed was necessary to prevent the "immediate collapse" of our entire economy.

Any honest liberal who claims that Bush used fear-mongering tactics to prematurely rush us into Iraq would only be honest to admit that Obama and cronies have used the exact same tactics to push this travesty of a bill through.

Speaking of honesty, how "urgent" does Obama really think this crisis is if he has enough time to take a long weekend off dining at fancy restaurants before getting around to it?
