President Obama has admitted with a chuckle that his “shovel ready” projects were not nearly as shovel ready as they had hoped.
Many are upset with the president for seemingly laughing off the many
people out of work as he seeks to create government jobs all the while
exhibiting zero concern (or perhaps limited understanding) of a failing
private sector and the reasons it fails.
Perhaps we should be merciful and offer him the benefit of the
doubt. Possibly Obama laughed merely to make fun of himself. True, even
with this scenario, it might have been more about saving face and
recovering an otherwise embarrassing moment while answering a question
during a television interview. Then again, maybe the guy actually feels
bad about about one of his failing policies and stands ready to take
sole responsibility and is now reconsidering….
Hmm…Yeah…Maybe…And maybe Santa is losing weight this year by getting
an extra work out while constructing a slick, new 2011 model sleigh. And
maybe Nancy Pelosi and Sarah Palin get along so well, they’re thinking
of joining a health club together. Maybe the next time Joy Behar
activates her mouth, she’ll activate her brain first. And maybe we’ll
all go ice skating together some day rejoicing that hell had frozen
In any event, cheer up, Mr. President. You did indeed create a huge,
massive, shovel ready project. In fact, with only you to thank, I can
think of something right now which desperately needs to be shoveled.
