"I am the President"

These are the words from our fearless leader to Congressional Republicans at a meeting in which he was trying to drum up bipartisan support for his spending bill. So much for the change we were promised.

Did anyone really believe that Obama was going to do anything other than what he wanted? The idea of reaching across the aisle is a farce. Washington is full of people who live according to an ideology. This is something they will not change.

Obama was a liberal while in Congress. The old saying is that a "leopard does not change it's spots". Well, Obama is ruling like a liberal. And, you can expect more of it to come. He is in charge because "He is the President". Of course, a Democratic Congress helps too.

What does this mean for the rest of us: more government intervention. We are going to see the largest increase in the size of government that this country ever saw. Suddenly, Washington feels it is alright to run up a deficit into the trillions. What do they care? They won't be in office when our grandchildren have to deal with these decisions.

Obama is just one more in the long line of ideologues who occupy offices in Washington. There is no more concern of doing what is best for the American people. Instead, all of them, on both sides of the aisle, focus solely upon pushing their political agenda. In the end, that is all that matters to them.

Obama is the President and he is now started campaigning for four more years in 2012.
