President Obama has made me feel so much better about things. He admitted that things are going to be really hard, that jobs will continue to be lost, that factories will close, that the economy will continue to stink...but it's all gonna be worth it! We have been "asked" to sacrifice (at the point of a gun), and sacrifice we will. At least we got a failing, union-strangled uncompetitive car company for all our "sacrifice".
Why must we sacrifice? Why, for the children, of course. "Sacrifice" has been thrust on us so that our children can continue to live in a country where stuff is made.
Enjoy your sacrifice, comrades. It's your patriotic duty, after all.
