IRRESPONSIBLE CHANGE: What Was the Rush to Sign the $787 Billion Stimulus Plan … So Obama’s Could Have Weekend Off?


Change you can believe in … irresponsible rush to judgment in signing away our children’s future.

Why would anyone rush to sign something before actually responsibly reading what they Obama_bar_mic_chicagowere signing. Are not we always told to read the fine print before signing? Is not part of the sub-prime mortgage problem the fact that individuals had no idea what they were signing and what rates would balloon to? Who can honestly say, whether you be a Republican, Democrat or Independent that a rush to judgment and signing what has never been read is responsible to “We the People”?

Obama used all the finesse of a used car salesman rushing this piece of legislation through Congress. Buyer beware when one makes you try to commit to something before you are ready to responsibly act.

What was Obama’s rush to sign the $787 Billion Stimulus plan? Why the phony rush to sign such an enormous spending bill that will affect generations for years to come? Was it because he was afraid that law makers may actually read the over 1000 pages before they actually signed it? Are you actually afraid that they might actually read it? Was it because Nancy Pelosi had to catch a plane to Rome, Italy on Friday night?

Maybe it was because as the New York Post wrote, it’s Barack and Michelle Obama had to get out of town for Valentine’s Day weekend. Obama plans to spend the Presidents’ Day weekend in Chicago, IL, and is not expected to sign the bill until Tuesday of nest week. So why the rush? I guess we must remember what is important as minions, and it’s not us. Why was it so imperative that Congress not be given ample time to actually read such an important piece of legislation? Was the economy going to collapse over the weekend?

After pushing Congress for weeks to hurry up and pass the massive $787 billion stimulus bill, President Obama promptly took off for a three-day holiday getaway.

Obama arrived at his home in Chicago on Friday, and treated wife Michelle to a Valentine’s Day dinner downtown last night. The couple was spotted leaving upscale Table Fifty-Two, which specializes in Southern cuisine, with the first lady toting what appeared to be a doggie bag.

As stated at Sistertoldja, remember the old saying: “when the going gets tough, the tough get going”. Some how that’s not how the saying is supposed to be. However, this is Obama politics and the MSM will never call him on it.

Ilan Kayatsky , spokesperson for NY Rep Jerrold Nadler sais, “In a perfect world it would have been nice to have had more time to process it.” Which begs the question … what was the rush to actually responsibly read the bill over the weekend from start to finish and vote on it early nest week?

The political rush to sign this stimulus (SPENDING) plan has all the similarities of what Democrats have been whining about for 8 years. They claim that GWB pushed through the WMD’s and war with Iraq in the same way. I would ask, what is the difference? Folks, do you realize that this spending plan is close to a trillion dollars, THAT’S WITH A “T”.

      Osama Bin Laden Barack Saddam Hussein Obama “will go down in history” as the most irresponsible, arrogant, ignorant POS US president of all time!!

      It’s a crying shame that Obama will take down our great nation single handedly in every possible way…the deficit, troop morale, national security, etc., etc. And the sad thing is, he doesn’t need any help from his liberal friends!

      Maybe just maybe the (edit) headed Bozo didn’t sign the bill because there has already been a Valentine day massacre ???

      SM: Edit because we don’t need to be the nest Don Imus ;)

      Geez isn’t the dream of all muslims to bring down the Unite Stated ??? Well obama is getting paid to do it !!! If you line the white house with velcro then he will be stuck there

      The question really is why didn’t Barack Obama, Mr. Transparency in govt not want the members of Congress and Senate to read the full bill?

      The second question is, what A-hole would vote for a bill that they had not fully read?

      What the hell do we have representing us in DC?

      If not just a simple ramrod job,
      the frenzied ‘Spending Bill Fiasco’
      might have been echeloned into
      tax reductions first, real shovel-ready
      projects next, and finally all the
      politically self-serving invincibility
      crapola last. It does not pass the
      logic test. Hidden agendas are
      being revealed and patterns are
      taking shape. Government stands
      to gain while the people decline.
      Cavalier hiring of our politicians
      comes back to bite.

      Smelling salts, please!

      The failure to read and comprehend is a continuation of the amnesia for the past 20 years. If they fail to comprehend, fail to read, who can hold them responsible? Ignorance means they cannot be held accountable for their actions – that’s the way it works on Wall Street, banks, insurance companies, government, and any number of other enterprises. Wooo…didn’t see that coming…blindsided…

      #5 RightKnight—-Pass the smelling salts to the Idiots in Congress who really need the wake up call! How long has this thing been in front of them and they don’t bother to go over it with a fine tooth comb?

      Are we surprised? Hardly

      The Government really does enjoy
      living off the People. Ethical behavior
      is not on the top of their agenda when
      spreading around OPM. Socialism
      invites greed and control abuses on
      the part of the elite in charge. It’s
      kind of a one way street.

      Pass the lobster, caviar, champagne,
      limousines, and dedicated airliners.

      Our grandchildren’s grandchildren will be paying for this.

      Maybe all the port in the bill made it too greasy to read? and all the pages just slipped out of their hands.

      [...] long at all … talk about change you can believe in. So much for open and transparent as a $787 billion stimulus plan was rammed down America’s throat as politicians voting on it were forced to vote without [...]
