The Big 0 is scaring the bejeezus out of the country as a whole. That draining sound you hear is the hope leaking out of the heals of almost everyone in the country. The Big 0 in the mean time has no plans, no courage, no solutions, no inspiration and no leadership. He is, in a word, Carteresque. Every day, more and more people see that this emperor has no clothes and every day, under his growth of government the actual solutions slip further out of reach. Not everyone understands the Why's and the How's of this, but an ever increasing number know in their gut that this is not the right path. Today he implied that his administation has increased USA oil production. Very slippery. While he has stopped drilling all over the country, the results of the work begun under Clinton have produced a high for recent years in oil production. Obama has done everthing he can to reduce oil production. He again lies to project an image that is exactly opposite of what he really is. If even he must lie about himself to project an image that he thinks is acteptable, what does this tell us? If the guy feels compelled to pursue a certain direction, a certain set of goals and policies, why is he also compelled to lie about what he is doing? He has reached the point at which a majority of Americans see him on TV and immediately think to themselves, "I hate that guy." Americans may disagree with a guy who has firm beliefs based on rock solid passions, but they detest a guy who is trying to swindle them. The Big 0 is that guy. It's over. The country divides into two basic groups: Those who remember what the Carter years felt like and those who are finding out.
