Time to deliver, Mr. Obama

Jan 252011

President Barack Obama talks a big game, but in the end, he simply doesn’t deliver; making him the New York Jets of politics.

In Tuesday night’s State of the Union address, he laid out mighty plans for reducing excess government spending once and for all, creating a utopian society of electric cars and 100 percent employment, and ending subsidies for oil companies –– a move sure to outrage Fox News pundits.

It sounds great on paper, but Obama seems to have forgotten some rather minor details: that he has a very uncooperative Republican-dominated House to deal with, and that it will be very difficult to reduce spending if he’s implementing all sorts of––how shall we say––awesome new programs.

Nobody can possibly envy the mighty tasks Obama has in front of him, what with a massive deficit, a struggling economy and two large-scale wars overseas. But Obama was elected because of his promises of change and––as he often reiterated in his address––his desire to invest in our future.

America’s problems are mighty, and for Obama to succeed in creating the change that he has so often promised he needs to stop relying on rhetoric and rely on change we can believe in –– and change that he can deliver.

It’s time for President Obama to stop being the New York Jets, and instead start being the Green Bay Packers.
