A certain recipe for failure would be to blindly continue with that which has miserably failed. Welcome to the perverted world of today’s liberal political pogrom. As soon as the shampaign ended and all of the Bolshevik bunting was removed, the socialist singsong sophistry of “we inherited this mess” was all the rage. Nearly two years later, the song remains the same but the subject of the hilarious hymn has deteriorated at an alarming rate.. It would seem that America’s Hussein is even more adept at destroying the nation that he leads than Iraq’s Hussein was..
The fascists finger pointer has decided to continue with the “I/we inherited this mess” mantra and it is easy to understand why, most recently at a staged “townhall” meeting in Wisconsin. If Obama and his band of collectivists Czars had managed to even slightly slow the effects of the years of delirious Democratic destructiveness, the socialist soliloquy would be different. Since the dystrophic Democrats have held majorities in both Houses since 2006 and now the “presidency” for what amounts to a totalitarian trifecta while things have gotten appreciably worse, the fault for everything obviously belongs to moderate George Bush..
In March of 2008, the dumb drum beat of Obama was reaching a fever pitch. “History will not judge President Bush kindly for his failure to act in a way that could have prevented or alleviated the economic crisis..” (“Blame game could ‘boomerang’ on Obama, strategist says” CNN dot com) If the Obama puling is to be taken seriously, this becomes the next logical question. Since you were bravely voting “present” during this period that you have identified as an “economic crisis” and since YOUR party held the majority in BOTH Houses during that time, what is YOUR excuse for your inattention and inactivity, both before and after your ascension to the “presidency”?
Even though the reality of the liberals being the controlling party in both Houses for years must override liberal childishness, “certain” polling reveals that the “public” views the Republicans as the source of the problem.. “41 percent of people surveyed in a recent CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll said Republicans are responsible, 28 percent blamed Democrats.. According to a Washington Post/ABC poll conducted in April, 59 percent blamed Bush for the economy, compared with 25 percent who said Obama was at fault..” There you have it, those who had the insight while simultaneously experiencing the cathartic cleansing of their collectivist consciences through voting for the Bowing Bolshevik STILL refuse to admit that their stupidity nearly two years later is at least a major part of the “problem”..
Barry Bosworth, an economic adviser to Jimmy Carter no less said, “the whole world is going to turn towards fiscal restraint now and he can either join it or he’ll be an outlier..” Bosworth is on to something, however he slightly misspoke with that last word within his quote. What he should have said was “he is an out and out liar..”
Nitwit Nancy Pelosi chimed in as well with another helping of her usual nonsensical meandering. Pelosi was talking about the alleged “positive indicators” relative to the Obama Depression when she added that “they followed ‘nearly a decade of failed Republican policies’”.. Mind you, this is the same Democratic dunce who just a few days earlier said that unemployment benefits are creating jobs faster than practically any other program.. (“Pelosi: Unemployment Checks Fastest Way to Create Jobs” Fox News dot com) “It injects demand into the economy, it creates jobs faster than almost any other initiative that you can name..” According to the article, she was “arguing that when families have money to spend it keeps the economy churning..”
If she truly believes this, then why are both she and the liberals ADDICTED to TAKING “families” money away from them through their exorbitant taxation and expecting the economy to miraculously “churn”? Unemployment “benefits” (what has to be the ultimate liberal oxymoron..) is simply the “fastest way” towards a total dependence upon the liberal government.. Unemployment “benefits” only the liberal handout mentality because as it has been said, socialism is a great idea until you run out of other people’s money to spend.. Here we have the scientific proof that the combination of Bolshevism and Botox causes brain damage..
Economist Bosworth says, “I don’t think that we are looking at a crisis where the Obama administration has a fundamentally different response to the crisis..” What happened to all of these vapid promises of “change”? It would seem apparent that Obama is using the “status quo” that he allegedly abhors while trying to “beat around the Bush” in the hopes of hoodwinking the electorate again in 2012. This Swiss watch of a “plan” will reap its rewards for the liberals with a resounding rebuke in November of 2010..
If Obama INSISTS upon placing blame, lets allow him to do so. However, I INSIST upon correcting him. For the sake of argument, lets agree that he “inherited” this economy. Here is my addendum, or for the liberals, an “adden-dumb”.. YOUR party has had complete control of Congress since 2006. YOUR party has therefore been responsible for spending since that time. Since 2008, YOUR party has also enjoyed holding the “presidency” and as well, since the diaper wearing Democrat Al Franken (Who?) sat down, you also had a “supermajority” that was incapable of being stopped or deterred. With all of that superior liberal intellectual and political acumen at your disposal, how have you managed to magnify the “problem that you inherited” from yourself and those of your party by a factor of nearly ten times? Summer of 2007, the guy who you think was “responsible” had a 4.4 percent unemployment rate. YOU have a 10 percent rate and there are no signs of your Depression slowing.. The statute of limitations is UP on your fascists flailing and your silly blame game..
“Even if that pace of hiring were to double immediately, it would take until 2013 to recapture the lost jobs”. (“7.9 million jobs lost, many forever” Yahoo Finance) “If it takes three years, more than 3.5 million additional jobs will be needed because of the continued population growth” and that isn’t even counting all of the ILLEGALS that Obama desperately wants to “amnesty” along with their silly “chain migration”..
Shall we point more fingers? What was your first response to that which you “inherited”? The “stimulus” and you had the foresight to place the pickled progressive Joe “Smartass” Biden, in “charge”.. What has happened since then? “It’s very hard to discern any impact” says Brian Bethune from HIS Global Insight. (“Stimulus: The big bang is over” CNN Money dot com) Your plan to “stimulate” stimulated nothing other than higher unemployment and trillions in deficits. To be fair, your lunatic takeovers and health scare scams certainly added to the TOTAL uncertainty that permeates the business community, not to mention your targeting of the business and financial communities in general..
Deputy Housing Secretary Ron Sims called this the “Summer of Economic Recovery” which should have caused him to have an immediate drug test as his obvious flashback to the “Summer of Love” and all of the positive vibes and social diseases that accompanied it won’t make a damned bit of difference when rampant socialism is the “plan du jour” at the Magenta Mansion formerly known as the White House..
Ken Simonson, the chief economist of the General Contractors of America said, “There’s no pretending that the stimulus will drive the economy or replace the private sector..” All due respect Sir, but “pretending” is what the liberals and Obama are all about. As well, replacing “the private sector” with a cadre of collectivist Czars and an ramped up socialism that would make Roosevelt proud is EXACTLY what the liberals and Obama have set out to do.. “Mission Accomplished”..
Democratic strategist Julian Epstein, an uncrowned master of Democratic denial, wants Obama to say that the stimulus has “worked”.. “The message has got to be optimistic and positive. It simply can’t be ‘I inherited this mess and I’m doing the best I can’”.. Epstein also said that “The White House needs to go on a confidence campaign and perhaps take a page from President Reagan’s playbook..”
Here is one of the typical liberal intellectual stumbling blocks. The liberals are absolutely convinced that the Reagan “magic” came from his ability to effectively communicate to the nation. What the liberals don’t understand is that this ability came from the fact that it was effortless for President Reagan. The reason that it was effortless for Reagan was because these words came from deep within his character and not from what the liberals rely upon when they speak, pure partisan politics and the acquisition and retention of power via the teleprompter. President Reagan was genuine, the liberals are calculating and conniving. Epstein’s “plan” wouldn’t reveal the liberal’s character, it would reveal their true LACK of character.. By the way, while Epstein and the liberals are considering the “Reagan playbook”, why won’t they consider reading and utilizing the chapters about lower taxes and less governmental intrusion?
“He really needs to spell out how we are coming back and it’s morning in America again..” What Epstein will never realize is that this “morning” is one of those strange Alaska mornings where the sun doesn’t come up for about a few months.. With Obama the oligarch and his cast of charaters, it will be more like a few years and quite possibly, a few decades..
“Obama on Friday vowed to do everything in his power to create jobs..” Based upon his miserable track record of DESTROYING nearly eight million jobs already, the nation hopes that he will start paying a lot LESS attention to the “problem that he has inherited”..
