Last Year's Business

BO's Hope and Change

Associated Press (01.06.09) :: "President-elect Barack Obama vowed Tuesday to bar lawmakers' pet projects from his massive economic stimulus plan and to bring unprecedented accountability to federal spending." Source

TIME/CNN (02.26.09) :: "On Tuesday evening, when President Barack Obama declared before a joint session of Congress that "we passed the recovery plan free of earmarks," House Democrats, led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi, popped out of their seats like jackrabbits for a standing ovation. On Wednesday, those same House Democrats, led by Pelosi, passed a budget with, by some counts, nearly 9,000 earmarks, worth an estimated $7.7 billion." Source

Associated Press (03.02.09) reported today ::

President Barack Obama will break a campaign pledge and sign a budget bill laden with millions in lawmakers' pet projects, administration officials said.

Administration budget chief Peter Orszag and White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel both downplayed the $410 billion spending bill and signaled Obama would hold his nose and sign it. Orszag said: "We want to just move on. Let's get this bill done, get it into law and move forward.

Said Emanuel: "That's last year's business."

Translation: We lied. We know we lied; you know we lied. Now that that's out...let's move on. YOU need to get over it."

Of course they lied! And they think it's OK that they lied to the American people.This is what the majority wanted and now that it's here this same majority acts as if they are mute!For cryin' out loud...doesn't anyone understand they have been duped by one of the best in our times? This guy could sell ice cubes to Eskimos and convince them he invented them!Wake up America...or is it too late?

Humble Preacher: Thanks for stopping by. I agree. We have been duped...or maybe the American public is just that gullible.

Of course, we could also be dealing with a little bit of what Isaiah said: "Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter." (Isaiah 5:20)

BO is just like the Clintons; they could set an orphanage on fire on Christmas morning...and there would STILL be people standing up to defend them. Never ceases to amaze me.

Maybe this just might have something to do with it too:
18 having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart; 19 who, being past feeling, have given themselves over to lewdness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.
Eph 4:18-19 (NKJV)

One thing is certain:the land that I love that Almighty God has blessed more than any other is about to feel His wrath unless we repent and turn to Him ASAP!
