Fixing A Problem

Updated on June 11, 2012

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?"

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?"

As Always,

The Frog Prince

Remember In November

      The Republicans must begin to act like winners, not caving to the rampant accusations of the socialist Democrats.

      Terrific Hub Frog - The more we keep spreading the word about this "Obamination" the better. My goal is to keep hitting this topic hard until we have a new President. I have a bumper sticker that reads "Obamination - No Thanks - I work for a living!" I have been getting lots of positive feedback about it - gives me even more hope about November. Keep up the good writing,

      I guess I'd like to say, I was one of the Intelligent People who DID NOT VOTE for Obama and hopefully NOW, there will be lots more people actually LISTENING and SEEING what is happening to our Country...And above all realizing that SOMETHING has to be done before it's too Late. Great Hub Froggy.

      Great thoughts here. I think we must learn to develop our own success stories. The government is not the answer to solving our problems. Great show!

      Hey, by his standards (such as they are), the private sector IS doing fine--struggling along until he can figure a way to bring it down in flames completely. It's all your perspective, doncha know.

      His PROBLEM, though, is that the Tea Party and other concerned Americans are ALSO doing fine in that they can (as you put it so well, Jim) SEE NOVEMBER coming right up!

      Why is anyone surprised now?

      Anyone who was paying any attention in 2008 knew that Barack Hussein Obama was an ardent socialist who grew up surrounded by Marxists, including his mother, his father, his mentor, and his grandfather! His preacher of twenty years is a Black Liberation Theology Marxist to this day, so why are we shocked that Obama is too?

      Just this week we learned that Obama had joined the far-left New Party, after denying that he did.

      If he walks like a Marxist, talks like a Marxist, and surrounds himself with Marxists, why are we surprised to learn that he's a Marxist?

      The simple reality is that Obama is a socialist and active believer in crony capitalism, where the "winners" are the companies that contribute to Barack H. Obama and permit use of shareholder funds to further the Obama agenda at the expense of fiduciary duty to the owners (the shareholders may not be winners, but the CEO's who play the game always are). The simple and unavoidable truth is that the central economic planning Obama desires to impose requires ALOT of regulators and enforcers - this is why Obama is so in favor of "public service" as an alternative to private sector employment. The fallacy is that ultimately you have too few people producing anything, and a massive army of bureaucrats who have to be paid salaries and fringes in the face of an ultimately declining GNP. This is why socialist/communist nations without exception have very low percapita GNP's. Sure, the elites at the top of government live like kings on tax money, and the favored crony CEO's get government subsidies, which they treat as "profit" and bonus themselves lavishly on. But the vast majority are either government grunts or private sector peons; only those at the very top of the ladder do well. By promoting central economic planning, failing to impose rataliatory import tariffs, and switching our patent system to "first-to-file," Obama is destroying the willingness to invest and work domestically, causing our jobs to be offshored by the tens of millions, and killing the innovation machine that drives unit-labor-hours down so markets can expand due to lower pricing and wages can rise due to competition for labor, respectively. I know there's nothing I'm saying that's particularly profound, and that's the problem. Obama is missing the boat on something that at root is SIMPLE.

      Obama is incompetent and that is all there is to it. He was never presidential material, but nevertheless he got the job. Now it's time to correct things before his inability to lead and his utter distaste for our system destroys us. Voted up , up and up.
