Obama: "You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet"
Evidence is mounting that Chrysler dealerships were selected for closure on the basis of political contributions, not profitability. And Nancy Pelosi wants an inventory of "every aspect of our lives." These are only two of today's new items, for which the popular adjective (which I don't particularly like) would be concerning.
Last night, the President told the contributors at a Hollywood fund-raiser, "You ain't seen nothing yet." This was after cataloging the accomplishments of his first four months in office, which he says he would put up against the first four months of any presidency since FDR's.
Okay, let's take him at his word: we're in for a lot more of the same. A quick scan of today's news (mostly at the Drudge Report) reveals the following:
It's already old news that Obama is quadrupling the George W. Bush administration's budget deficits. I heard reports last week that they might turn out bigger.
"Ain't seen nothing yet?" One of the possibilities here is that it's time to declare that American liberty is merely a passing fad -- and note regretfully that it is passing rapidly. However, I don't think it's time to surrender yet.
Not everyone is mourning freedom's passing, in any case. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Tuesday, "The best part of Barack Obama is his heart is bigger than any heart in the world." It's a good thing for me that I already ate my lunch.
