“By hook or by crook, we’re going to make sure that when I leave this office, that the country is more prosperous, more people have opportunity, kids have a better education, we’re more competitive, climate change is being taken more seriously than it was, and we are actually trying to do something about it. Those are going to be the measures by which I look back and say whether I’ve been successful as president.”
Make sure that the country is more prosperous:
Remember that old Winning the Future (WTF) campaign?
“To win the future, we must out-innovate, out-educate, and out-build the rest of the world…”
“The truth is that in the 21st Century, world economies are trying to do more with limited resources, and part of that ultimately means we can not have an energy sector that is rooted in the infrastructure of the past.”
Carbon based fuels are sooooo last century. We’re on to wind, solar
and nuclear[ed.except for Iran] and super-hamster technology. Because what better way to drive a $15 trillion economy in the 21st century than windmills?
So let’s just stipulate that the economy is coming along quite swimmingly. Because if it wasn’t, could we say that it is?
And hey, if you’re not feeling it, just go to the White House page on the Economy for a complete propaganda primer on every aspect of the economy - “By hook or by crook.”
More people have opportunity:
This year’s White House Science Fair “focused on diversity” – something Big Guy is especially proud of.
I hope we managed to identify at least as many young science protégés as did “diverse” science.
Opportunity - “By hook or by crook.”
We’re more competitive,

That approach, he said, demands thinking about both wired and wireless broadband service as a public utility
Because everybody knows you get the very best competition with monopolies – regulated by the government.
Competition: “By hook or by crook.”
“Climate change is being taken more seriously than it was, and we are actually trying to do something about it.”
A new policy from FEMA will cut mitigation funding to governors who don’t adopt plans to reduce the effect of natural disasters caused by anthropogenic climate change. – Mediaite
Climate Change taken seriously – “By Hook or By Crook.”
So I hope you got the message: Big Guy plans on getting his way by hook or by crook – or both. Butt then you already knew that.
