The President as an Editorial Writer?

President Obama has written an Opinion/Editorial piece in the Washington Post. Seriously, I didn't believe it at first either when I read the headline at Hot Air. President Obama did write it at the Washington Post though. He has even scheduled a prime time press conference to try and reach more people.

Are you kidding me? The President has access to the Press at any time of the day or night. He has a Press Pool that follows him around all day, should he leave the Oval Office. At any moment, he could ask for a particular Reporter to be brought to the Oval Office. He could and does have access to any number of Television shows, where he's interviewed. Yet, that isn't enough, now he wants to write Editorials to try and gin up some support for the Porkulus bill that is losing support at a remarkable rate? The scare tactics are failing and the President is imploding right before our eyes. 

The President's poll numbers are falling like the proverbial rocks, and now, a majority of the people think the country is on the wrong track. So the President demonstrates leadership by writing an Opinion piece for the Washington Post? 

Desperation has his the White House, and President Obama is apparently not yet up to being the President. The Press is turning on him, because his administration hasn't looked like they thought it would, it looks like he's still in perpetual campaign mode, and his Opinion piece reeks of it. 

Every day, our economy gets sicker -- and the time for a remedy that puts Americans back to work, jump-starts our economy and invests in lasting growth is now.

Now is the time to protect health insurance for the more than 8 million Americans at risk of losing their coverage and to computerize the health-care records of every American within five years, saving billions of dollars and countless lives in the process.

Now is the time to save billions by making 2 million homes and 75 percent of federal buildings more energy-efficient, and to double our capacity to generate alternative sources of energy within three years.

Now is the time to give our children every advantage they need to compete by upgrading 10,000 schools with state-of-the-art classrooms, libraries and labs; by training our teachers in math and science; and by bringing the dream of a college education within reach for millions of Americans.

And now is the time to create the jobs that remake America for the 21st century by rebuilding aging roads, bridges and levees; designing a smart electrical grid; and connecting every corner of the country to the information superhighway.

The only thing missing here is the promise of a chicken in every pot. Of course, the Vegetarian Commando's of the far left would probably protest in front of the White House if he did, so never mind. 

It's astounding isn't it friends?
