Fixing A Problem
Just Hunky Dory Huh?
Walking It Back?
Over the weekend David Axelrod, Obama's chief campaign adviser, made the rounds of the talking head news programs about Obama stating during his Friday new conference that "the private sector is doing just fine." One of the things he contended is that any intelligent American would know that Obama "misspoke." Actually David, any intelligent American wouldn't have voted for Obama in the first place and definitely won't vote for him again after seeing what now clearly be seen.
The fact is a problem can never be fixed if one can't see the problem in the first place. Then to try to walk the statement back within mere hours by stating, "it's absolutely clear that the economy isn't doing fine." The reason the economy isn't doing fine is because during Obama's tenure he has proceeded to take a bad situation and make it much worse than it should ever be because of his misunderstanding, or total lack of knowledge, of how the private sector works. You see, he has never functioned there. I don't need to walk that statement back because I made it first in 2008 and I see what I said has come to fruition. Obama isn't qualified, nor experienced enough, to be the President of this nation. It really all centers around Obama's worldview which is now right out there for any "intelligent" American to see.
It Really Is Time To Wake Up Now...
Our President obviously isn't paying attention to much around him other than his campaign and those who he wants to contribute to his cause. What his cause is should no longer be in question after this latest "misstatement" which wasn't a misstatement at all. It's how Obama sees the world economic view. One of the other things he said confirmed his view of what should drive our economy - stimulate job growth by hiring more government workers. That was the real gist of the message Obama was delivering and it was stated. We need to stimulate the "public sector" because the "private sector" is doing just fine.
His retraction, if you read both sets of words carefully, wasn't a retraction of his belief that "the private sector is doing just fine." Read both statements separately then try connecting the dots as any "intelligent" American should and you'll see what I mean. Obama's view of our nation is one that is entirely "government centered." The government exists to solve all our problems. The more people who are dependent on the federal government the better is his economic mantra. Accordingly, we need more fire fighters, policemen and teachers, which may have some merit, but those public sector folks need to be paid and the reality is that we're broke. The federal government can print money while state and local governments cannot. It really isn't a matter of affordability to Obama.
What this latest blunder really involves is the Obama administration's attempt at a push back at the electoral results of the Wisconsin recall effort. The individual states, via their citizenry, are beginning to realize that they cannot afford the excessive demands that those same state and local "public sector employees" make on the tax payers. Obama sees hiring more as the cure to our economic woes. The days of union strangleholds on "public sector employees" are bringing great discomfort to Obama and his progressive allies.
Here's what Governor Scott Walker had to say after Obama's misfire, “There are two very different views in the country. The current administration seems to think that success is measured by how many people are dependent on the government. I think success is measured by how many are not.”
Bottom line here? This is more of the Obama blame game. It's suddenly the fault of the state's Governors that the economy isn't doing well. They're not hiring enough public sector employees you see. What I'm wondering is why we are seeing our dismal economic news even though this administration has increased the size of the federal bureaucratic monster by 17% in just over three short years? Maybe another 17% increase of non-productive jobs will straighten the whole situation out since "the private sector is doing just fine."
In November the great "Obama Social Experiment" needs to come to an end. There was a danger of hiring a chief executive officer to handle the affairs of this nation who has zero experience in "the private sector." It's nice to have book learning but it then needs to be coupled with practical experience, of which Obama has none, in dealing with businesses and economics.
So if you vote then ask yourself, "Is the private sector really doing fine" or is it more smoke and mirrors from the Obama administration which doesn't really have a leg to stand on to run for reelection? How do 3 million workers just disappear without a trace? Where did they go? Are we ever going to get them back? Are they all going to become firefighters, policemen or teachers? If so, who is going to pay for them and their union bosses? Just watch the video at the link below and then ask, "Is the private sector really doing just fine?"
It's All Government Magic I Suppose. First You're There, Then You're Not?
This coming election is a critical turning point for our nation. The vision of our nation becoming the ultimate in being a "Nanny State" should disturb anyone with any intelligence Axelrod. What was said wasn't "misspoken." What was said was the vision that the Democratic Party itself has transformed itself into over time. A once noble party has been hijacked by the progressive movement. Will that ever "change?"
