My dad has always been an avid football fan. He played high school football in late 1930s. He was the smallest guy on the team and played quarterback and punter on offense and guard on defense (he would dive at the ankles of opposing lineman and tackle them that way). Ever since I can remember, I have heard my dad say, ‘In case of doubt, punt.” Third down punts were more common in those days.
While I don’t think Obama is smart enough to understand football, but he evidently learned the phrase, “in case of doubt …” However in Obama’s case the statement is, “in case of doubt – spend.” Not sure what to do to help the economy – spend. Not sure how best to create jobs – spend. Not sure what to do about health care – take it over and spend. Not sure what to do about the poor – spend.
I once heard of a lady like that. Her solution to everything was spend, spend, spend. After three husbands, two bankruptcies and one foreclosure, she ended up in jail for writing bad checks.
Our President is doing the same thing and perhaps the best solution would be for him to be sent to prison for writing bad checks. The only problem with this is that Attorney General Holder has a track record of releasing convicted felons from prison, so most likely, Obama would end up a free man to do it all over again.
