Obama Offers Post It Notes In Lieu Of Leadership


Have you seen the latest? (via Doug Powers)

(Washington Post) President Obama called on Congress on Tuesday to support a five-point “to-do list,” which features job creation and mortgage relief measures, in his latest effort to paint the legislative body as an obstructionist force during an election year.

Obama has proposed all of the measures before. But as Washington has grown more polarized during the presidential campaign season, the president has been trying to use Congress as a foil to highlight his administration’s efforts to pass legislation to stimulate the economy.

So, nothing serious. Just a campaign gimmick. Check.

“In this make or break moment for the middle class, there is no excuse for inaction, no excuse for dragging our feet. None,” Obama told the crowd at a nanotechnology facility at the State University of New York at Albany.

During Obama’s remarks, two flat-screen television monitors showed a graphic in the form of a green Post-It Note titled “Congress To-Do List” and laying out the five items with un-checked squares next to them.

It’s make or break, yet, what does Obama have to offer?

Doug suggests that instead of “Foreward,” Team Obama should have gone with “Post it notes you can believe in.” How about “Abdication of responsibility”?
