Barack Obama has released a new web video in an effort to drum up popular support for his $3.6 trillion budget. Here’s his pitch:
“I’m asking you to head outside this Saturday to knock on some doors, talk to some neighbors, and let them know how important this budget is to our future,” he said in the video.
Call me crazy, but I happen to think there’s something unsettling about Americans with marching orders from the president ringing your doorbell to tell you your salvation depends upon the success of the White House’s unprecedented agenda. What’s frightening is I expect to see them in action this weekend.
And if a pack of Obama’s Witnesses do actually come around to hit you up for a few trillion, be sure to invite them in and ask them for a line-by-line breakdown of the budget. I suspect they won’t have much else to do with their time.
