On Grabbing A Mop

Barack Obama:
"Another way of putting it is when, you know, I'm busy and Nancy's busy with our mop cleaning up somebody else's mess, we don't want somebody sitting back saying, 'You're not holding the mop the right way.' Why don't you grab a mop, why don't you help clean up? 'You're not mopping fast enough.' 'That's a socialist mop.' Grab a mop -- let's get to work."
"That's a Socialist Mop."

Well it is. And it does matter what kind of mop you use. Especially when it's actually a giant paint brush and a bucket full of red ink. Red as in socialist, and red ink as in spending money we don't have and making what we do have worth less. Or worthless.

How about, "Hey Barack! That's not a mop!"

And I'm not going to help you use it.

I also dispute that it's "somebody else's mess." It's government meddling's mess. It's interference in the free-market's mess. It's forcing lenders to make bad loans based on things other than financial solvency. It's ACORN's mess. Just about everyone in the Federal Government has this mess's stain on it's hands, and, Barack ... you in particular have more than your fair share of it.

You don't clean up paint with paint. Only cover over it.
