It’s, oh, so much more than than the bully pulpit that Teddy calld it.

Teddy called it a bully pulpit; but it is so much more than that.
As our legislative branch of government finds itself in indecisive stalemate, our President steps up to the plate and speaks, among his many talking points, this simple statement:
“We should start where most new jobs do — in small businesses, companies that begin when an entrepreneur takes a chance on a dream or a worker decides it’s time she became her own boss.”
Oh yes, I know it sounds like rhetoric, and It tastes like cliched boilerplate Americana apple pie, but it’s true. Now is the time for all men and women to come to the aid of their country.
I’m serious, y’all.
Congress can’t fix it. The Court won’t correct it, because the Court understands that we are a free people, and we needn’t have the government do everything for us.
Just because the government bails out the fat cats, that  doesn’t mean we all have to be bailed out.
It’s time for the American people to rise up and do what their government is unable to do, because their government is broke!
Americans, find something productive to do.
Oh, so you think there’s nothing you can do in this situation?
Who’s going to suffer if you don’t act? Those, perhaps, who are dearest to you?
You may have to, uh, take a pay cut. That’s a big part of what this deleveraging thing is all about.
If you’re mad at the bankers, you can feel better about lowering your standard of living just a bit. The bankers don’t like deflation.
Furthermore, this belt-tightening is what we need to make our exports competetive with the developing world. But the real crisis is not in our trade deficit, or even in our budget deficit.
It’s in neighborhoods and our factories. Look around you. Look in your neighborhood, your city, your church. There’s a lot of work that needs to be done.
It’s up to you. Follow the President’s advice; step up to the plate and show us what ya got.
Let’s we the people lead our leaders back to true democracy.
