You have signaled to all that you will use the powers bestowed on you by the United States Constitution to fight for the American people. Wield your executive power to needle Congress to act. Force this stalemating, stodgy, strategizing Congress to rise from political muck to help America return to work. Stare Congress in the eye and dare them to repeat such silly statements as those spouted by an unnerved Speaker John Boehner who said “This idea that you’re just going to go around the Congress is just, it’s almost laughable.” Put the Honorable Speaker and the rest of our bloated Congress on the ropes, then jab and hook for our future.
When you say, “we can’t wait”, the American people chant back determinedly, “Go, Dog, Go”. So press onward and, “SIGN, BABY, SIGN! Sign executive orders for student loans, housing refinancing, research and development, veterans’ jobs and drug shortages. Direct your administration to turn over every stone for more aggressive executive orders that can aid America’s crisis. Do not be discouraged by political backlash. Be emboldened.
No-one expects that your early executive orders will create major shifts. Yet, you are in there swinging, shaking things up, and exposing Congress’s folly as even more foolish and obstinate in their flat footed, rabbit punching retorts. You are acting on the will of the people and are forcing disruption among the purveyors of the status quo. Yes, bolder action is required of you. When you find that the political upper cut responses to your latest executive orders are much less painful than the thrills of maneuvering your vision through the morass, you will swing harder.
Bill Daley, when you support the President, stating “Let’s re-emphasize what powers we have! What we can do on our own! Push the envelope!” America is chanting, “Push on!” Do not be sidelined by a do nothing Congress who would keep the American people unemployed for political gain. Fight for us. Let Speaker Boehner keep “a very close eye” on your bold moves to make sure you “are not doing anything unconstitutional” and then press forward with rope-a-dope for jobs.
And when organization spokesmen like “Americans for Limited Government” President Bill Wilson respond by accusing you of sidestepping the political process and “consent of the governed.” stare their rhetoric down, for you are mandated from the governed to enable a government for the people, not for the governors. This Constitutional Republic can no longer suffer tolerantly our elected officials placing their own interests of re-election above those of their constituents. We demand more.
Congress, let President Obama’s actions be a harbinger for politicians from the Right and Left. Real change is inevitable. If the young people who elected President Obama weren’t a ringing bell of freedom, if the Tea Party movement was not a plague of locusts to change hardened hearts, if the Wall Street Occupiers battling snow and police retaliation do not represent an insurgency for change, will the President’s executive orders be enough of a challenge for you to re-examine you pre-election strategies and tactics? Will you insist on holding firm, stalling the President’s job program and evading a direct, bold, and immediately effective jobs programs of your own? At least 30 million swing voters are watching and will aggressively vote a response.
President Obama, my three pronged plan to exchange bank equity for housing debt, to force credit amnesty to quickly spur economic growth capacity, and to institute a bi-partisan, private sector, domestic job voucher plan is critical to for an American turn-around. Your battling Congress now to put American jobs first is critical for America’s future. When you have my attention, you have the attention of the swing voters. Do not retreat. Be bold. Congratulations.
