Hopenchange or fooled again?

Posted by Richard on February 6, 2009

Steve Clemons, September 26, 2008:

Tonight, George Bush succeeded I think in scaring Americans that this crisis could be a systemic threat. Bush said “our entire economy is in danger.”

That’s the fear button. He pushed it. And he said the clock was ticking.

This seems like a bad episode of “24.”

President Obama, January 20, 2009:

On this day, we gather because we have chosen hope over fear, unity of purpose over conflict and discord.

On this day, we come to proclaim an end to the petty grievances and false promises, the recriminations and worn-out dogmas that for far too long have strangled our politics.

President Obama, February 4, 2009:

"A failure to act, and act now, will turn crisis into a catastrophe and guarantee a longer recession, a less robust recovery, and a more uncertain future," Obama said in his prepared remarks.

President Obama, February 5, 2009:

"This recession might linger for years. Our economy will lose 5 million more jobs. Unemployment will approach double digits. Our nation will sink deeper into a crisis that, at some point, we may not be able to reverse," Obama wrote in the newspaper piece titled, "The Action Americans Need."

President Obama, February 6, 2009

The situation could not be more serious. These numbers demand action. It is inexcusable and irresponsible to get bogged down in distraction and delay while millions of Americans are being put out of work.

That didn't take long. "Meet the new boss, same as the old boss …" 

Maybe more senators are buying into this fearmongering, but fewer and fewer of us ordinary citizens are.
