That could well be the wisest thing our President has done for a while. With riots in the streets of London and world leaders continuing to push back from Barack Obama's economic policies, silence may serve him well---particularly for a day or so.
The world leaders already know what we are now beginning to discover in regard to the Obama/Geithner economic recovery plan.
Bloomberg is reporting that our government and the Federal Reserve have spent, lent, or committed $12.8 trillion, an amount nearly equal to our nations total gross domestic product of $14.2 trillion in 2008. That's $42,105 for every man woman and child in America and 14 times the $899.8 billion of currency in circulation.
David Broder in the liberal Washington Post says they are not revealing the whole picture either. He says they learned their tricks from the Bush administration, but are not coming clean with all the numbers. He says its worse than they are saying.
John McCain called this fiasco, "generational theft". And it is. Our children, grandchildren and beyond will live with these decisions for generations to come.
An equally serious and troubling problem is to whom we owe the money.
China. They are colonizing America, differently than England, but none the less just as effectively.
China is calling for the world to replace the dollar, has just presented their newest military weapon that our own military say they have no defense against and are cutting 30-year deals with Russia for oil at about $20 per barrel according to FOX News yesterday.
What is the answer? What should America do?
China has deployed what is called in the West, the "Sizzler," and it has been offered to Iran as well.
Orville Hanson has evaluated weapons for the Navy for 38 years and he says, "This is a carrier destroying weapon, that's it's purpose."
A Pentagon employee said Russia, who built the weapon, has also offered it to Iran. Officials say we have no weapon that can effectively defend against it.
While China acquires weapons against which we have no adequate defense at sea and builds strong financial ties with Russia and Iran, they are continuing to expand their stake in America, by buying our T bills, etc., economically colonizing our country.
Now China, Russia and other countries are calling for the world community to replace the dollar with a new global currency.
Obviously that is a concern to most all Americans. In fact, Rasmuessen polls showed yesterday that 88% of Americans oppose allowing the dollar to be replaced.
There is now a growing greater concern, that our President and Geithner may not be leveling with the public.
Rep. Michelle Bachmann, R-Minnesota, says a day after Geithner promised he nor the President would consider allowing the dollar to be replaced, he left that option on the table when asked by reporters about China's proposal.
She has now introduced a resolution that would ban the dollar from being replaced by any foreign currency.
And yesterday AP, not your conservative news service, is reporting that Obama has already broken his promise regarding no taxes on the middle class by raising the tax on tobacco . I've linked the story, you can read it.
So what can we do?
I believe Walter Williams, the well known African-American columnist has touched the answer in his latest column. He says our problem is immorality.
At it's core, the problem in America is spiritual, not political. Certainly our leaders could and should use better judgement---but ultimately the problems we face today in this great country will be solved by spiritual renewal.
The social issues we face today are related to rebellion against God, our Creator and Giver of life.
While we are preparing the next step in the defense of marriage in Washington State, I am asking you to join me personally, and set aside a special time to pray for our country and our state every day.
Greater is He that is in you, than he who is in the world.
