He is My Shepherd

Power Line has a great post on Obama and his mystique. A few excerpts:

He is my Shepherd

I shall not want. He comforts the afflicted. He is a miracle worker.

He promises to provide for Americans from cradle to grave, while lightening the load of government on the backs of ordinary Americans. He promises not to increase their taxes "one penny." He promises to reduce their taxes....

He promises to cut the deficit which He has just massively increased while building in further increases. He promises to make us healthy, wealthy and wise.

His wonders never cease. He will save Detroit....

He has confidence in His ability to peddle the faith. His confidence exceeds that of hucksters such as Father Divine, Jimmy Swaggart, Jim and Tammi Bakker, and Elmer Gantry combined. He says our day of reckoning has arrived. Yet it is a judgment from which He exempts Himself. His day of reckoning awaits.

Be sure to read the whole thing.

It's the "building in further increases" that scares me the most.

I think this is the first time in my 30 years that I am truly scared for the future of our country.

Obama has a plan, he told us all his plan, he has the backing of Congress and he is doing exactly what he said...and very, very quickly.

I think we are in trouble.

I've heard governors (probably on Hugh Hewitt's show) say that the state mandates in the stimulus bill stop being federally funded in two years. That means each state that accepts the funds for, say, more welfare recipients, would have to kick in those payments from state funds in two years, because you can't just kick those people to the curb. What will that do to already-devastated state budgets?


I'm scared too. And part of that is the sense that there's nothing I can do about it except watch the train come to run me over. Of course, maybe I could go to the Tea Party protest in San Diego tomorrow morning. At rush hour. Hmmm...

Yes, it's the train coming at me and I can see it, but can't stop it that worries me.

I think that I can really understand how the people who revolted in the Boston tea party felt. I always understood why they revolted, but I couldn't imagine being in their shoes. Now I can...and I even wondered to myself when we, the people, are going to finally say enough. I'm ready now...
