Each and every time I hear Obama talk about budget cuts- he talks about "tough choices." He loves to use the rhetorical phrase, "Is that who we are?" when he talks about these things. He said that again in today's speech.
Let me explain "Who we are."
We are debt slaves at this point. It doesn't matter anymore- this question of, "Who we are or what we believe in." It is irrelevant. You see, we can believe passionately in any number of things, health care for the elderly and poor, social programs, wars, left or right belief systems. All of that shit gets tossed out when you can't pay for it. It's that simple and anything else is wishful thinking. That is the harsh reality.
Obama still hasn't figured out that the rats left the ship before he climbed aboard.
Just once, I'd like to respond to Obama's rhetorical question, "It doesn't fucking matter who we are." Capiche?
