(Open letter # 3 to President Obama)
"These people are saying we are going to insist on tax cuts for the richest people in the country and we don't care if they are paid for, and we don't think it is a problem if it contributes to the deficit, but we are not going to vote to extend unemployment benefits to working people if they aren't paid for because they contribute to the deficit.”-Ted Strickland
Tight! Perfect soundbite....but it didn't come from you, Homes. It came from my soon to be ex governor who took the bullet for you, man. He's gone..too late to save him. What you sayin'.. sorry?
Naw..all we got from you was more of the same BS you been talkin the past two years...you apologized to the wrong people on Tuesday, after another so called bipartisan sitdown in your office... what did you say...”sorry I haven't done enough outreach to the GOP.”
What the hell was that?
Where's the outreach to the people who elected you, Homes? You know the ones who are losing their jobs...their houses.....their ability to look their families in the eye and tell em it's gonna be okay?
Where's the apology to them for not standing up to the crazies who are trying to destroy this country rather than let the rest of us live here with them?
They have been telling you since day one, they are not going to work with you. Their only purpose is to destroy you. They ain't lyin' to ya bra.
THESE... FOOLS... ARE.... SERIOUS!
Talk about a high tech lynching...Man you sittin' on a horse with your hands tied behind your back, waiting for them to locate the perfect tree for you necktie festivities.
What don't you understand about that?
There can be no compromise....There should be no compromise....It is perfectly plain....permanent tax cuts increase the deficit....
It's a no brainer, man...
Even Jose Feliciano can see this...
Since you're a sports junkie...let me paint a picture that you might understand....comes from the old Burt Reynolds movie called The Longest Yard..
During the climactic game against the guards...word trickles down that the QB has once again sold out...the team...angry...stops playing...and let's golden boy take the hits..
This is where you are Homes...you're in a team sport....but due to your seeming lack of leadership...your team is quitting on you..because they no longer believe in you..
Reynolds does ultimately beat the guards in a perfectly scripted Hollywood ending...
But this ain't the movies, Homes...this is real...
Homes...you need to make some moves...call out some signals...change the game...or you're going to be sacked and penalized..
Think of it this way....4th down and inches.....your name is Franco Harris...or 4 seconds on the clock your name is Michael Jordan and you're playing against the Cleveland Cavaliers in the first round...and the ball has been inbounded to you..........
What you gonna do Homes?
