"We must pledge once more to walk into the future."
-- Candidate Barack Obama, 2008 --
Or, as the president said when he submitted his "jobs" proposal the other day, "Hey, the past is a lot more fun than the present. Let's skip all this governing stuff and go back into campaign mode."
Even his fellow Democrats see him for what he is.
Case in point:
Congress already said no"Ludicrous." And this from a Democratic insider.

[Obama] sent his well respected Budget Director Jack Lew out to brief the media Monday on how this $447 billion program would be paid for. The only problem is that Obama sent Lew out naked.
Lew told the media that the entire program would be financed with by a series of tax increases — all of which had previously been rejected by Congress. It was a ludicrous proposal.
Why would the president make a funding proposal that he knows Congress will reject?
The most likely explanation is that his jobs program was a campaign document — not a real plan for putting people back to work. [link]
The wheels are coming off, folks.
And none too soon.
