Is Obama The Next FDR? Or the Next Ike? February 18, 2008

If you are a Republican, a true Republican who understands your roots, you will not be afraid of an Obama presidency, because it is likely that, like his Democrat predecessor, Bill Clinton, he will insist on running the government without deficit spending.

Another popular president (I’m assuming Obama will be popular) helped create the national highway system. Can any one of you imagine a president pushing through such a huge, government-funded program like what Ike created?

That’s the promise of Obama. He talks about things like national service, a peace corps on steroids, and it scares the shit out of Republicans, who are only interested in maintaining the status quo, and who forget their own heritage of interventionist presidents like Ike and Nixon (wage and price controls).

The Republican Party has become a caricature of itself, and it no longer represents anyone other than the very, very rich. That truth will be exposed on November 4. Those that fear Obama  ignore their own legacy, and are merely afraid that this country may go back to the tradition of fair government intervention that Reagan nearly destroyed.

I guess there are people who still take Gore seriously. For the life of me, I can’t imagine why? Every time he eats a hamburger he robs me of 360 gallons of water I could be using to wash my SUV.
