Kudos to Obama

For telling it like it is.

Obama has said the tax holiday would save a typical American motorist no more than $28, and likely less according to economists because cheaper gas would increase demand and push up the price, putting more profit into the coffers of the oil companies.

"What working families need right now (is) not more of the same Washington gimmicks that are out of touch with the struggles of working Americans, but real change that will make a real difference in their lives," Obama said.

This is the change I spoke about earlier in my blog. Change that hangs around for awhile, change that is probably going to be uncomfortable for awhile, but pays off in the long run.
"But what we're talking about now is a Washington con game, and I think the American people are smarter than Washington and will see right through it."
Yeah, color me skeptical. I think if history shows us anything at all it is that American people can play the role of sheeple too damn well.
