President of the United States: Chief Job Placement Official
It’s not change when he offers four more years of Bush economic policies that have failed to create well-paying jobs,…
–Barack Obama, Remarks of Senator Barack Obama: Final Primary Night
I heard that and the first thought that went through my head was, “Since when did the President of the United States become in charge of placing people in well paying jobs?” My second thought was, “Yet another bit of evidence that the President of the United of the States is actually the Nanny-in-Chief, and that us Americans really can’t take care of ourselves anymore.”
Now don’t misunderstand, I’m not saying I like John McCain. Frankly, I can’t stand the man. I think he is a big government Statist who doesn’t like the idea of the Americans doing what they perceive as being in their best interest. After all, when I go to McCain’s website I find this,
John McCain Is Proposing A New “HOME Plan” To Provide Robust, Timely And Targeted Help To Those Hurt By The Housing Crisis. Under his HOME Plan, every deserving American family or homeowner will be afforded the opportunity to trade a burdensome mortgage for a manageable loan that reflects their home’s market value.
In other words, John McCain also wants to the the Nanny-in-Chief too. McCain wants to help people who made unwise decisions during the housing bubble, and also penalize those of us who did not make unwise choices.
The idea of people dealing with the mistakes they’ve made, and having to bear the burdens of unwise choices is totally anathema to these people.
