Okay, so I was listening to some political spin artist from Obama today, and I noticed they are still using the term "Inherited the worst economy." This is being done, beyond a shadow of a doubt, to basically say, "Hey, we are doing great. This is all George Bush and the Republican's fault." Interesting, for you see I work in a business with sales, service and production. I recently took over a location that had some rough times, bad manager, etc. Now, when the district people come to me and say, "How do you plan to make your goals." If I said, "Look I inherited a mess, and this is going to take time." I would be given an ear full for making excuses and not making success. For business leaders come to you and say, "Hear is the responsiblity we are given you, the goals we expect and now you make it happen." If make it happen means, "I have excuses, I would be in a short lived position." So as a leader, I do not dwell on the past leadership. I talk about what is happening now with "Me and my team" being responsible. We are in charge, we have the plan and we have the will. That is basic skill management. Does Obama and his team do this????
Hell no, they are still looking for excuses with buzz words and phrases. This country is a complete mess, on a level of people starting to think that in less then six months we will see an economic colapse. People are even stocking up on food, guns and water. Yeah, this is happening in the USA. Did that happen under Reagan, Carter, Bush or Clinton .... "NO!" People still believed this country was strong enough and able to move through rough times. Now, apparently we think we are screwed and it has been three years now of Obama. I can cause a change in the businesses I work with, in months ... Obama thinks he needs four more years??? Really, years???
Anyway, I am sure people here have a mix of those who only read Obama love facts and those who hate him. Either way, I think we all have to admit that there is rough times now and worse times on the horizon. Personally, I think it is all just too screwed up to fix anymore and as much as I know it will be horrible. I think we have to crash to rebuild. Just sad, that all certian people are thinking of in this terrible times is, "How can I get elected for four more years?" Oh I know, "Call it an inherited economy."
