How many times have we heard over the last couple of months that “if we didn’t pass this stimulus package NOW, DAMMIT, RIGHT EFFIN’ NOW!!!!!, that there was a-gonna be HELL TO PAY, BAH GAWD!!!!!!? Hm?
So, okay. Congress gets it passed. Over the objections of a majority of the American people and most of the Republicans in the Imperial Socialist Congress, this bastard of a bill gets passed.
So, seeing as THE SKY IS FALLING, THE SKY IS FALLING, WE’RE ALL GONNA DIEEEEEEEEE!!!!! – Obambi signed it immediately, right?
Erm…not so much.
After pushing Congress for weeks to hurry up and pass the massive $787 billion stimulus bill, President Obama promptly took off for a three-day holiday getaway.
Obama arrived at his home in Chicago on Friday, and treated wife Michelle to a Valentine’s Day dinner downtown last night. The couple was spotted leaving upscale Table Fifty-Two, which specializes in Southern cuisine, with the first lady toting what appeared to be a doggie bag.
The president plans to spend the Presidents’ Day weekend in the Windy City, and is not expected to sign the bill until Tuesday, when he travels to Denver to discuss his economic plan.
So much for “do it now, do it fucking NOW!!!, eh what?
