In a predictable manner Washington waited until the eleventh hour to reach an agreement to avoid a government shutdown. Leading up to this eleventh hour, April 8, 2011, these budget proposals had begun all the way back in October of 2010. On Tuesday, April 12, 2011, (in four days!) the debate begins for the 2012 fiscal year. Once again our priorities are at a deficit.

The way I see it, if a democratic President, a democratic Senate and a democratic House had not spent so much time passing strategically timed “lame duck legislation” through January of 2011, leading up to the time that America would be swearing in so many new conservative Senators and Representatives, this debate could have begun and ended a lot sooner than the final hour we now find ourselves in.

The knees of our economy are shaking from strain under the multiplied gravity Barack Obama is forcing upon our backs. His talking points only concern investments in a distant future of energy and a health care law that is simply unacceptable for the economy we are currently suffering.

Instant gratification for every disappointment we see right here and right now in America is impossible, but President Obama does not seem to see things through the same red, white and blue tinted glasses so many of us others do.

1,441.0 miles to go.
