President Obama Changing Gears

President Obama is finally understanding that it is not only congress that has its fate, balancing on his policy, it affects him as well. Reports out of the White House they are preparing for political life after a bruising election, the President will put greater importance on fiscal discipline, does this means we are heard all the way up in the ivory tower? The electorate has been screaming for months about out of control spending. Since he will only have two years left and begin working without a super majority the smart thing to do is focus on deficit reduction, education and energy. He will have to stand up for his health care and financial overhauls and try to protect them from repeal. The smart thing to do is send the olive branch right away and extend Bush-era tax cuts that expire at year’s end. There will be a need for a more serious focus on how to balance the federal budget and pay for the programs that keep making the country further into debt. The only good news is when you see these reports from the White House and the President Obama staff you realize they know people are fed up with federal spending; particularly as unemployment remain so high.
