If It Sounds Too Good To Be True . . .

I heard the other day that Obama has been on television in the first 7 months of his presidency more than Bush did during his entire two terms. It makes me wonder just why he is trying to sell America on his agenda if clearly( based on public opinion polls) they just aren't interested.

The legislators are overwhelmed with calls, emails, faxes and snail mail from their constituency against passing Obama bills proposed and this lack of support is across party lines. Many bloggers I have come across have compared the latest TV push for Obamacare to a snake oil salesman's pitch. Maybe if a bill is really that good it wouldn't need the pitch. Maybe if they were simpler and tried to do one thing at a time it wouldn't be such a hard sell. Maybe if there wasn't such a rush to jump off the cliff before having time to see what was below there wouldn't be the push. Maybe they need to take a pause and actually read this tomb of over 1000 pages. You don't read a contract before you sign. The only thing transparent about the current administration is their need to push forward more government control over our lives and our wallets. Quite frankly I don't want anymore Obama TV.
