President Apocalypto Brings "Doom and Gloom" Fear-Mongering To The People!

He's still doing it! The sky is still falling! We're still going suffer a slow, painful death if we don't create a Socialist Marxist Totalitarian regime!

That and President Hypocrite is still babbling about "tired politics" and blaming Republicans when it's His Own Party exercising the same partisan politics of the past!

Fox News is reporting:

President Obama told an Indiana crowd Monday that "we can't afford to wait" to jump-start the economy, as he made the first of two campaign-style stops meant to draw attention to towns hard-hit by unemployment and rally support for his economic stimulus plan.

The president spoke at a town hall-style meeting in Elkhart, Ind., where the unemployment rate soared to 15.3 percent in December, up 10.6 percentage points from December 2007.

He said he intends to keep his "promise" to lighten the burden of the economic downturn on working-class families, and called on Washington to pass the recovery package "immediately."

"The situation we face could not be more serious," Obama said, warning that the economy could slide on an irreversible course if nothing is done. "We can't posture and bicker and resort to the same failed ideas that got us into this mess in the first place."

He spoke as the Senate was preparing to clear the final procedural hurdles toward approving an $827 billion version of the recovery package. But with Republicans continuing to raise serious questions about the bill -- a massive package that combines a mix of tax cuts, spending and incentives -- Obama was trying to ensure public support.

Obama tried to discredit what his administration sees as misconceptions about the package.

He said 90 percent of the jobs created as a result of the bill would be in the private sector, disputing claims that the funding would go toward government job creation. He said the package is free of earmarks, despite ongoing criticism about wasteful spending.

"It is the right size, it is the right scope," Obama said. "I also can't tell you with 100 percent certainty that every single item in this plan will work exactly as we hope. But what I can tell you is I can say with complete confidence that endless delay or paralysis in Washington in the face of this crisis will only bring deepening disaster.

"I can tell you that doing nothing is not an option," he said.

Once again, thanks for the hope, Mr. President.
