Days of future past!(the Budget process)
It seems like a repeat of the days of future past in this budget process. Because, in the past, President Bill Clinton faced a hostile republican congress, led by a stubborn and inept House Speaker, who , while in the throes of high unemployment and recession chose to put balancing Well, to make a long story short, Bill Clinton stood firm against those republican efforts and the rest is history! Indeed his stand made him the most successful democratic president in modern history! Now again, here in the future the past is repeating itself as, once again, A popular deomocratic president is facing a hostile republican congress led by a stubborn and inept Speaker! And as, once again ,the republican party seeks to balance the budget on the backs of the poor, placing that as a priority once again over the more pressing needs of the unemployed, the underemployed, the homeless and the poverty stricken, President Barrack Obama needs to follow the lead of History, of those days of future past , and stand firm against the misplaced priorities of the republicans!!!! Because, just as in those long ago days, history and the success of conviction beckons!!!!!
