Seriously Mr. President?

Is it just me, or are you tired of hearing the same old crap coming out of the White House?

“Everyone has to pay their fair share”.

Can someone please give the president a tissue?

When half of this country do not pay any taxes, who exactly is he referring to when he says, “everyone”?


When the government overspends their answer is to want to raise taxes. They claim they can’t possibly recover by just reducing spending.

Really?

So, following this thought process when I overspend, perhaps I should just tax my kids to make up for my own stupidity and lack of control. Or do you think, possibly, that I should just stop spending and get my own financial house in order?

Maybe we should force everyone in the government, including the president, to listen to Dave Ramsey daily until they “get it”.

The key to getting this country’s finances in order is to not raise taxes anywhere, but to cut back on spending. And yes, boo hoo, someone is going to have to suck it up and cut back on their programs.

While I’m on the subject, let’s move to a flat tax to truly have everyone pay their fair share. With a flat tax, we will remove all of the loop holes that the rich currently take advantage of and then everyone will have a stake in the game. Everyone will PAY THEIR FAIR SHARE.

This way, the rich will pay a percentage based on the large amounts they make, which will be a substantial amount of money for those of you who really want to stick it to the wealthy. In addition, the not so rich will also have to pay an equal percentage of their income too.

It’s only fair.

The only way for this to work fairly, is to also ensure that the rich, or anybody else, has zero loopholes with which to weasel their way out of paying. In fact, it should be illegal for congress to pass any legislation that allows for anyone to bypass this flat tax. Everyone pays, no matter what.

Once this is done, then we can discuss who pays their fair share, but until this happens, shut the hell up with the, “everyone has to pay their fair share” rhetoric. It’s insulting to listen to this drivel time and again from the person who is suppose to be the leader of this country.

The term, “Lead, follow, or get out of the way” comes to mind. Mr. president, you have already proved you’re a poor leader, and I don’t expect with your arrogance you will want to follow anyone, so I think it’s time for you in 2012 to just get out of the way.

If you can’t truly come up with a decent plan to help this country then I suggest you just sit quietly in the oval office and wait for the inevitable, the loss of a second term. The continuation of your comments are doing nothing but digging a deeper hole for your legacy.

I’ve always said that a good president is not necessarily the smartest person in the room, but they know how to surround themselves with the people who will get the job done. You have surrounded yourself with idiots, and the truly sad part is that you are listening to them. Either that, or they are trying to help you and you’re ignoring them.

Wherever you are getting your advice from, I think it’s time to change the station. I fear it’s too late though. Unless you do some soul searching and have an epiphany, you might as well sit back, relax, and wait for the fat lady to sing you a lullaby...
