ANALYSIS/OPINION:

The arrogance of our president and his administration is simply astounding. Just three days after the voters of Massachusetts sent a very stern message to Washington that they did not support the current health reform legislation and out-of-control spending, President Obama was in Ohio telling a local crowd and the people of America of his plans to continue to push health care reform.

It sounds eerily familiar to our former president’s insistence on “staying the course” in Iraq when people all around him and the general public were insisting that he should change course. If President Obama and Congress insist on ignoring the will of the people, the people will act to force a change in course at the polls in November. Maybe then the light will come to the White House and Congress and Mr. Obama finally will say he has truly heard the voice of the people.

Until then, I’m afraid he is going to continue to rearrange the deck chairs on his version of the Titanic. Meanwhile, his arrogant and obstinate behavior take the ship and the country below the waterline and deeper into the depths of economic turmoil.
