Are ya getting the idea that Obama has been all about the smoke and mirrors? Once again, he says the things that most Americans want to hear like being responsible and doing the right thing. Problem is, he’s running into that age old problem of words not meeting up with the actions:
Chicago has yet to recoup the $1.74 million cost of President Obama’s victory celebration in Grant Park — despite a burgeoning $50.5 million budget shortfall that threatens more layoffs and union concessions.
"The Democratic National Committee has not yet paid us,” Peter Scales, a spokesman for the city’s Office of Budget and Management, said Thursday after questions from the Chicago Sun-Times. "We’re reaching out to them this week."
The best leaders lead from the front, by example, and then expecting their followers to emulate their example.
So, what’s the example he’s telling us to be, this guy that raised the most money in history (and still has money left over)?
Yup, that’s right:
Yeah, that’s helping the old "trust" quotient now, isn’t it?
Of course, we have a problem – he’s creating even more bills. Won’t spend his to pay his own bills, betcha he’s all about spending ours to pay for others.
Oh wait….he’s already doing that!
