Barack Obama: I Have So Much to Do, I Can’t Start Until 2013!


I find it rather fascinating that President Obama pitches his reelection message with “we have so much more to do” with about a year left until Election Day.

So why the wait? Your own White House has adopted the slogan, “We Can’t Wait.”

Also left unsaid is precisely what those unfinished tasks are.

You can’t ignore Bowles-Simpson recommendations, punt on the Supercommittee, kick the can down the road on the Keystone pipeline, and watch economic conditions from home prices to gas prices to food-stamp use and unemployment deteriorate and effectively run out the clock on your first term, and then tell Americans that your next four years will be a lot more productive.
