‘The American say…The American People want…The American People think, etc., etc.’


This is our President angry!
This is our President angry!

The hair on the back  of my neck goes up every time no good politicians get on TV and presume to talk for the American people…without substantiation.  How do our politicians and TV talking heads really know facts about the American people?  Polls, you say?  Well, if they form their statements from poll data, they should quote the relevant polls…like genius, Ezra Klein, does.  Speaker John Boehner is forever making statements:   “The American people” this and “The American people” that.  Someone should tell Rep. Boehner (R-OH) that his speaker title does not give him license to “speak” for the American people.  Perhaps he should read Wikipedia.  I remember the days when reporters talked to average Americans [like the “man on the street“] and broadcasted  the interviews on the evening news.  For all we know our politicians have a secret agenda with talking points and the media might have their own.  Somehow, yesterday, President Obama heard or sensed the call of the American people for him to get out front on the current scandals(?) and show that he is angry and the he is in charge and swiftly taking action. He bound to the podium yesterday and delivered his reassuring message.  I was so proud of him!  —GoodOleWoody

The Office of Management and Budget released a report today detailing the devastating effects of the “Sequestration” budget cuts on the country, if they are implemented in January 2013.

The automatic cuts were mandated by law after the Super Committee failed to institute cuts after raising the debt ceiling to avoid defaulting and include automatic spending cuts to domestic and defense programs across the board, with little discretion as to where the cuts are instituted.

“The whole point of this is that it’s supposed to be so mindless and stupid that everyone finds it unacceptable,” explained Bob Greenstein, the executive director of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.

The cuts would kick in at the start of next year unless Congress acts.

“The only thing Congress would need to do to prevent these big, dumb cuts that no one wants is to agree on an equivalently-sized deficit reduction package they’d prefer of smarter cuts,” said Ezra Klein, guest host of The Ed Show on Friday. “But thus far because they’re Congress and they’re terrible at their jobs that has not happened.”
