How Do You Define The Obama Administration's Insanity?
September 5, 2011
How does that go? The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting a different outcome each time.
So then the Presidency of Mr. Obama begs the question, is he, well…insane?
While this is going to be penned prior to the big announcement Mr. Obama will be bestowing upon our most fortunate heads on Thursday, leaks from the White House warn us his teleprompter doesn’t have any fresh new ideas. More spending (taking tax payer money and throwing it at things he deems are worthy), higher taxes for the “rich” – the “rich” being anyone who pays taxes…and there’s that old stalwart “shovel ready jobs” (leaning heavily on stop-global-warming type jobs for a crisis that only exists in Al Gore’s mind) idea.
Yeah right, how’s that been working for you Mr. President?
There appears to be zero new ideas coming from Barry’s Enchanted Teleprompter so when in doubt, give another speech spouting the same nonsense anyway!
A look at speeches in August of 2010 show Mr. Obama literally saying exactly the same thing he has been saying over and over including the line “and when I get back from my Martha’s Vineyard vacation” I’m going to come up with some ideas that Congress should implement that will produce jobs immediately. Remember that was our “Summer of Recovery”. Kinda eerie if you ask me. That’s actually what Joe and Mr. Obama called it back in the summer of 2010. Have we collectively as Americans recovered? Sure we have!
Oh, we haven’t? You say not one thing the Obama administration has done in almost three years has created even one job? Come on, those “saved jobs” the Obama administration talked about ad nauseum must count for something? You say they’re nothing but a figment of Mr. Obama’s imagination? Merely a teleprompter talking point and not reality?
Well who the heck knew?
Mr. Obama was saying the same things listed above as recently as his taxpayer funded “bus tour” that wasn’t really a bus tour in the first place. It was a campaign tour. If it walks like a duck...
Snippets of speeches from this recent tour have him saying when he would get back from Martha’s Vineyard (at $50K a night BTW) he was going to reveal his ideas for creating jobs immediately. Just as he promised this same time last year. Yet in that year, not one, nada, zip jobs have been created. What was that definition of insanity again?
Something else I found out about that bus tour. It was a staged bus tour. You the taxpayer paid for all of these fancy multimillion-dollar busses that the President never used for anything other than a photo op.
Tim Bryce of The Bryce is Right brought this to my attention. Tim and I aren’t making this up. What was made up however was this folksy, I’m-everyman, kind of atmosphere the Obama administration wanted to portray on this bus tour.
It was nothing but smoke and mirrors.
Mr. Obama in reality, flew to all of these places. He never drove one mile on these busses. He’d fly to the place he would be speaking at, then he’d get on the bus and get off right before his speech so photos would show him as if he traversed our great fruited plains camper-style.
And you’ll love this one, he flew the busses to these campaign, hand-shaking-baby-kissing stops as well! I’ll wager if someone were allowed to check the odometer on these busses they’d read 6 or less miles. You paid for them to be photo ops props folks. Now isn’t that special?
Do any of the 35% of those who still believe Mr. Obama is “all that” according to the polls see the major character flaw in anyone who would even allow such a thing no less participate in it? If it’s a “Magical Misery Tour” (as it was allegedly snickered about behind his back), and you’re flying, then just fly Dude! Why spend so much money that isn’t really your money in the first place, on a façade, a fraud, a con game?
Does this man have no shame? Do those who would still vote for him stop and ponder these things at all? If they don’t, please, please, I beg you, do the country a favor and don’t vote, just stay home in 2012.
I have to ask, why does he continue to repeat these stunts?
I can only hope his big speech this Thursday won’t be a repeat of his other failed fixes for the economy.
If this speech isn’t new, if it contains the same talking points he’s always been using such as: It’s Bush’s fault, Wall Street’s Fault, Banks are responsible, Partisan politics, we need more taxes, we need more “energy jobs”, we need more unemployment money for the unemployed blah, blah, blah…don’t we all need to think seriously about something?
Perhaps an intervention with a psychiatrist would be prudent. I’m just sayin’…
