This weekend, Lou Dobbs was asked how he felt about our president’s huuuuuuuuge flip flop when it comes to dealing with congress. When Barack Obama was the jr. senator from Illinois, he seemed to think the president (Bush) should not try to override congress. Then he became president, himself, and decided he “can’t wait” to deal with congress, so he’ll just enact policies on his own. (without congress) Lou Dobbs talked about this hypocrisy, and then he worked in a mention of “socialism” somehow. (gotta love Uncle Lou)
What do you guys think? Is the president a hypocrite? Is this all Bush’s fault? Was Lou right to discuss socialism in this context? And how much money should the Koch brothers being paying me, because I think they’re ripping me off.
