In a WSJ article entitled “Obama aspires to a ‘light touch’ not a heavy hand,” we find this gem:
As he prepares to release the most extensive proposals to change financial regulations since the 1930s, President Barack Obama is a bit anxious.
Anxious, that is, for people — and specifically for his conservative critics — to know he isn’t the heavy-handed meddler some suspect.
“I think the irony Ã¢â‚¬Â¦ is that I actually would like to see a relatively light touch when it comes to the government,” he said Tuesday in a White House interview.
If what we’ve seen so far is a “light touch” by the government on the economy, I sure don’t want to see what happens when Obama thinks a “heavy hand” is necessary.
By the way, this is the kind of spending that’s considered a “light touch”:
“We inherited it”?
Yes, that flag has 58 stars on it. I went for all-out accuracy with this picture.
