Can you define “dialogue”?

Apparently, our president can’t either.

[T]he question I think that the American people are asking is: Do you just want government to do nothing, or do you want it to do something? If you want it to do something, then we can have a conversation. But doing nothing — that’s not an option, from my perspective.” –Barack Obama

One, I don’t think most Americans are asking that question.

And two, if they are, but he isn’t willing to discuss one of the two options, he’s playing a Chavez on us.

Since he isn’t willing to discuss, I hope his actions come back to bite him in the butt — and sooner rather than later.

I can’t accept the premise that my goal should be to “have a conversation”.  Since he’s decided how things are going to go, I’ll continue to work against these inane efforts and hope we can salvage something.

Already, according to Real Clear Politics, his approval ratings have dropped from 73 to 65 (how they got that high I simply don’t understand) in less than his first month.  Maybe the American people are now speaking, and someone will recognize what happens when you focus on first-time voters to win the election, but you have to deal with the entire population to govern effectively.

  1. Obama realizes that he cannot “dialogue” with people whose greed and corruption prevent any real help or useful ideas.

    The Republican Party is a dying dinosaur – thank God!

    • Not sure who you are, John, nor where I mentioned Republicans.

      Mr. Obama wants no real “dialogue” with regular Americans, as I see it. Nor with those who believe in self-reliance instead of handouts.

      If you can show me a handful of “real help” or “useful ideas” in these economic policies, we can talk.
