It Didn't Take A Crystal Ball...
There is a difference between a scarecrow and Barack H. Obama. The primary difference is that the scarecrow does its job and I can't say the same about Obama after this past three and a half years. Obama goes on camera these days still playing the blame game. Lately it appears that Obama just doesn't get how the American public doesn't get the way he tells his "story." Maybe it really is that more people are beginning to understand that when his lips start moving he is lying, or at least his teleprompter is. The Great Uniter has now proven himself to be anything but that. The same person who decried playing "below the belt politics" back during his last campaign has now resorted to the lowest gutter ball politics I have ever seen in the past four decades. I never expect less from the Chicago thugacracy that now inhabits Washington DC. Maybe you think that is "alright conduct" coming from the President of the United States. I do not.
Noticing lately how "off message" Team Obama wants to remain? Very few middle class people appear to really care about Bain Capital. When that message failed they continued on the same message and added "outsourcing" to the equation. Bain Capital is in the business of attempting to save failing companies. They performed that function from the start whether Mitt Romney was there at the helm or on a leave of absence to a Utah working on saving the winter Olympic games. The hypocrisy in this whole scenario is that Barack Obama has never really held a job in his entire life that had anything remotely to do with running a business. Now he wants to question whether Romney has the experience or knowledge of how an economy works? How hypocritical can Obama get? He is the most inexperienced and unqualified person to ever inhabit the White House.
So outsourcing is now the issue? How long has that been going on considering we're in a global economy? So lets look at Obama's outsourcing achievements since he took office. The biggest one that took place in my mind was Obama ending our shuttle space program without a suitable replacement in place. Obama has essentially outsourced our entire space program to the Russians. Over the weekend they shuttled one of our astronauts to the international space station in a rented seat. The Ruskies aren't giving our folks a free ride ya know?
That's not to mention all those "green jobs dollars" that have been funneled to overseas companies. The Outsourcer-In-Chief has shipped our tax dollars, often contained in his stimulus bill, overseas to help finance his pet projects. This is the same former candidate (Obama) who on the campaign trail in 2007 was so insistent that if he was elected he would renegotiate NAFTA. Maybe he has forgotten that promise. I have not and he had no intention of doing so the first time he campaigned. In fact, part of the stimulus money was sent to Mexico for its solar panel industry. Recognize the hypocrisy here? Or to Fisker, the Finnish car company? That created jobs in this nation did it? Or even to China for for their green industry. See the pot calling the kettle black yet?
So while we're gauging hypocrisy on the outsourcing platform, where I give Obama a solid 10, lets look at his buddy Jeffrey Immelt and General Electric. Jeffrey is the CEO of GE and also chairs the President's Council on Jobs And Competitiveness. Maybe Obama has conveniently forgotten GE, Jeff and that fiasco. I have not. Obama wants to delve back into the 1999-2002 range and Bain. So lets do the same with Immelt and GE. Since 2001 when Immelt took over as CEO GE has lost 37,000 American jobs while at the same time adding 25,000 jobs overseas. Remember incandescent light bulbs, soon to be illegal in our country? GE has shuttered its American plants and relocated production to where? China is the answer. So what reward has been bestowed upon Immelt for his due diligence concerning American jobs? Go up and read the second sentence once again. There was something there about Jobs And Competitiveness in that sentence.
Time For Show & Tell Now Obama?
Then there's the "show me yours because I don't have to show you mine now" routine. This has to do with transparency, knowledge and hypocrisy. You have people like David Axelrod contending that Romney is even more secretive than Nixon. Never mind that it took years to get Obama to produce a forged long form birth certificate. Just never mind that Obama has spent millions of dollars sealing all known records of his past existence. Still waiting for you to release those academic records Obozo. Mitt Romney is a nice man. I'm not nearly as nice when people living in glass houses start throwing stones at me. Here's the deal Team Obama. When you release every thing that raises questions about Obama's authenticity then I'll slip a note to Mitt that he should release what you keep fishing for.
This has nothing to do with being a birther because that is a secondary issue. What I want to know about are the same things about Obama that he wants to know about Mitt Romney. The little things like just "who" are you, the real you and not the fabrications found in your two autobiographies? I want to see your academic credentials to insure that you understand how economies work. I'd also like to see your resume of business experiences to validate that you have even a clue about the subject since it is apparent you do not. How hypocritical can someone be sitting there next to Moochelle being interviewed on national TV claiming you want to know that Mitt Romney is "qualified" to run our nation's economy. It is obvious Barack that you are not qualified so lets shift gears and talk about that from now on. Lets talk about your failed record and not another person's successes in life.
Awarded To Barack Hussein Obama For His Absence of Leadership
It is said that this will be one of the dirtiest campaigns in history and I can see why very clearly. Obama has been a failure. His inexperience and lack of qualifications have been apparent for him to not be the CEO of a lemonade stand much less this nation. He gives a good, fiery speech or at least his teleprompter does. Most of us already know that Mitt Romney is wealthy. The majority of us care less about Bain Capital and more about the state of our nation after having to suffer through 3 and a half years of incompetence, Chicago style corruption and a lack of transparency that Obama so often promised as a candidate.
Obama was going to "change" politics in Washington DC. By his own admission, he has failed to do that also. He has taken it to the level of playing gutter ball if that is the type of change you thought you wanted. Obama made thousands of promises in order to suck too many people in. So now he wants 4 more years to correct his laundry list of mistakes? I don't think so...
