Never let a serious crisis go to waste

The Caucus - Obama Agenda Could Rest on Link to Economic Crisis - reported Rahm Emanuel, the White House chief of staff, encapsulated President Obama’s goal long before the first of the First 100 Days: “Never let a serious crisis go to waste.”
They take advantage of it with solutions that couldn't possibly help, but that they want done.
.... Team Obama casts his initiatives on health care, energy, education and the auto and financial industries as responses to that crisis.
Even though they make things worse, spending money we don't have.
His Republican adversaries call the recession merely an excuse for big-government ambitions that liberals have failed to achieve for decades.
And which they don't think a conservative can reverse when they get in control.
Mr. Obama currently holds the upper hand, riding high in the polls while Republicans appear chaotic and hapless. But he is racing to capitalize for good reason.
At some point people are going to realize their savings will no longer buy what they used to because of the way he is devaluing our currency, and they will turn on him.
Political history, and some early signs this spring, suggest that time is not on his side.
