I won... now get over it!

And the winner of the "no class" award goes to... His Majesty... the messiah... President Obama.
The media love to make comparisons between former President Bush and President Obama... one is hated, the other beloved. The fact is that at the outset of the Bush Administration, the former president attended a Democrat retreat as a show of goodwill and to try to set the tone for bipartisanship in Washington. President Obama, on the other hand, is showing his "bipartisanship" with his own version of "it's my way or the highway" attitude.
As noted in a recent Fox News story, Obama told GOP leaders at a meeting that "you can't just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done."
In other words, in order to "get things done," Republicans need to see things Obama's way. So much for tolerance of ideas.
Fox News goes on to report that in a meeting on the "stimulus" (read that as welfare programs, bailouts, and more spending), Obama told Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA), "I won. I will trump you on that."
Cantor was objecting to Obama's "proposal to increase benefits for low-income workers who don't owe federal income taxes." In other words, Cantor was objecting to a government welfare program.
The worst thing about the economic conditions facing America is not the conditions themselves. What we need to fear the most is the constant barrage we'll hear from Obama, the media, left-wing Democrats, and even moderate Republicans that this issue is so important that the government "needs to step in and get things done."
Government involvement will only make things worse, just as it did in the Great Depression. Let the business cycle work, and save generations of Americans from the massive debt that Obama and company are about to create.
