More Misfiguring

I'm truly beginning to wonder if this present administration has any idea of the value of a dollar. I mean, we all know that American presidents tend to come from pretty comfy backgrounds, or at least, from exceptional opportunities provided by others. We know Clinton came from rather humble beginnings, but he was definitely gleaned and preened for great things, as a young man, by the party. I know, I've seen the pictures. Then there were both of the Bushes around him, both generations were born with a silver spoon in their mouths. But back to the present administration. If he was attending private, foreign schools at the elementary age, he wasn't living the average life, much less the average American life. And from what the campaign revealed, he's had several well made connections along the way to enhance his life of upward mobility. All of the facts, clearly indicate, this man has no idea what a bottom line even is. He doesn't understand the value of the dollar compared to a hard day's work. After reading some foreign reports, it's really quite clear that he values power, authority and opulence enough to risk 30 death threats a day, or rather allow the secret service to prevent or block 30 death threats a day. Even as I type this, I am more convinced that he has no concept of the average American existence of putting bread on the table and a roof over the head of his family. After the incredible miscalculation of the cash for clunkers deal, as in not nearly enough funds to last; we now read that the so-called tax break many people received will have to be paid this year. That's right for the couples that have two incomes or the single that has two jobs or those on social security that also work, that little extra in the paycheck starting last April, may result in a little extra owed on the 1040. Now, I'm not saying he's sinister or doing this to the American public, I just think he's about as familiar with the value of a dollar, as Sarah Palin is about national politics.
