In a take on the old saying, “being a liberal means never having to say you’re sorry.. just blame someone else..” Joe “Stoli” Biden paid a visit to former Clinton administration Chia Pet George Stephanopoulos at the ABC “News” program “This Week”. Truth be told, Biden’s answers more closely resembled “This Weak”..
Biden is in the unenviable position of being the “front man”/punching bag (similar to what Hillary was when Bill gave her “health care” to socialize..) for Obama on the “stimulus package”. I suppose that he feels that he has a lot of explaining to do since their first stab at socialism hasn’t worked yet. After all, 467,000 more Obama jobs disappeared in June making the Obama total an impressive 2.6 million jobs lost according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. These are the jobs lost AFTER the Savior was duly anointed in November and beatified in January.
Between surreptitious gulps from his totalitarian tankard, (Biden has nicknamed the Thermos “American Express”.. “Don’t leave home without it”..) the vice president said, “There was a misreading of just how bad an economy we inherited..” Since no one was going to pepper him with the statistical proof of his lies on the set, he quickly added, “Now, that doesn’t –I’m not– it’s our responsibility now..” (Sounds like the Stoli was kicking in..) Even if you left the statistics from the BLS aside, the reality is that the liberals have been in charge of SPENDING in both Houses since 2006 and those same liberals have ignored and enabled the “crisis” that has been festering and percolating since the Clinton/Frank era. With Joe Biden, a take on yet another slogan seems appropriate, “A mind is a terrible thing to baste..”
In the online segment known as “George’s Bottom Line”, we read that “Biden acknowledged administration officials were too optimistic..as part of their effort to sell the stimulus package.” “Too optimistic”? By their tax returns alone, this administration is apparently already “mathematically challenged” and the handicap hasn’t improved with the “tutoring” of “Turbo” Tim Geithner.. “Sell” the stimulus package? When did they have time to “sell” the package? They only “sold” the idea that everyone had to vote on it sight unseen. Here is just ONE quote from Obama, “We are dealing with an unprecedented crisis that has to be dealt with rapidly.” (“Obama Hurries Congress to Hurry Along Stimulus Package” ABC News 01/24/09) Imagine if Obama was “selling” you an automobile in the same manner that he has “sold” all of his other multi trillion dollar Marxist mishaps and Bolshevik bromides..
Barack: “Hi, welcome to Obama Motors, sign here..” Customer: “Sign what?” Barack: “Sign this. Now. You’re gonna love your new car.” Customer: “Where is it? I want to take a look at it, you know, a test drive, maybe?” “Barack: “Sign here.” “Customer: “Can you even tell me what color it is? What make and model it is? Can I at least kick the tires?” Barack: “Sign here.. Hey, can you hurry up, we close in five minutes. You are gonna just love this car..”
According to Biden, “We and everyone else misread the economy.” “Misread”? With the Obama diarrhea panic/my hair is in fire and my ass is catching “hurry” that always preceded the vote on every ridiculous over-expenditure, no one had time to “misread” anything. By the time the bill’s name was read into the record, (ten bucks if you know the actual name of the “stimulus”: “The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009”. Talk about false advertising..) the bill, per the demands of “Dear Leader”, was immediately voted on..
Even if every Republican in Congress was an honor student at the “Evelyn Woods Speed Reading” class at 1,200 pages, they STILL couldn’t have read this travesty in time to delay its carcinogenic implementation. (Now that Comedian Franken and Quisling Specter are in the Senate, the filibuster is out of play. Now is when, as Russell Crowe said in “Gladiator”, they will “release Hell..”)
The question remains, did the Republicans do enough to inconvenience or even derail the liberal “jughead juggernaut” before “Laughing Boy” and the new Pennsylvania Progressive put the liberals over the filibuster top? Did they effectively voice the logical concerns of the middle class that are ALWAYS the victims/targets of the liberal “money grab for moochers”? The fact that the leftists will be held accountable for the hydrogen bombs that they have detonated come 2010 is small solace in relation to the inevitability that there may be very little left to salvage once the Black Plague and his various “recovery plans” fully contaminate capitalism..
The socialist savants “misreading” of the economy was based on being “too optimistic” according to Biden. Too infantile, too inexperienced, too naïve.. and the list goes on and on..
“The vice president argued more time is needed for the stimulus to work”.. “More time” to read the bill itself might have made it a bit more efficient, a bit more effective.. These honorable goals are never part of the DNA of any and all liberal legislation.. Economists, even liberal ones, are saying that it isn’t more time that is needed, it is more money that is actually needed. A more efficient application of the original trillions promised might have been sufficient. Hint for Obama: Socialism NEVER works regardless of how much imaginary money you throw at it.. More time for the bill to work, yet there was no time to read it and debate it before hand.. Why would he say that it “needs more time to work”?
“..no one expected that that recovery package would in fact be in a position at this point of having to distribute the bulk of the money..” Observant readers might remember that it has been pointed out here that this “package” (this “package” resembles the ones that show up on your front porch on Halloween already aflame and smelling of feces..) was designed to “payoff” right before the 2010 mid-term election. The liberals would then heave the lifeless carcass of “we inherited this mess” onto the stage once more with gusto at which time Bolshevik Barack can arrive with his pockets full of progressive promissory notes and “save the day”..
If Obama had shown up a bit more often during his whirlwind “career” in the Senate, he might have noticed the yeoman’s work being done by the liberals as their “Dismantle America” plan has been in full swing since the nineties..
Even wobble jaws himself let the cat out of the bag, “This was set up to spend out over 18 months..” That seems like an awfully long time to “spend out” when this issue was (which was yet another Obama “top priority”) “an unprecedented crisis that has to be dealt with rapidly..”
Just to make everyone “feel” better, Biden bragged about money set to “take effect”. (if they can get it printed and dried in time..) “7.5 billion for broadband, new money for high-speed rail (the government already “owns” the useless and subsidized Amtrack, can’t wait to see their efforts at “high-speed rail”..) the pace of the ball is now going to increase..” We shouldn’t have to wait 18 months for the Obama inflation. We are already experiencing the Obama 10% unemployment rate (the worst in nearly thirty years and counting) and the Obama Depression (exacerbated by his insistence upon switching capitalism with socialism) so this whole “pace of the ball” thing is almost as frightening as the idea of Obama as president..
Almost as frightening, but not quite..
