"It's Still The Economy, Stupid!"
Have you ever noticed that very rarely does Obama talk about our national debt? Does it indicate to you that he doesn't care anything about paying it off? Or has no inclination to pass or have a balanced budget passed? How about those high gas prices? How have his domestic energy production policies affected your wallet? Why is it that though Obama promised us that if his almost $1 trillion in stimulus was passed that unemployment would never rise above 8% and when it did that he wants to blame everyone but himself? He's the one who proposed it and said it, no one else did.
Right now Team Obama wants to talk about anything and everything but what has an adverse, or positive impact, upon the average American. There's the "War on This" and the "War on That" but rarely is the economy mentioned by Obama except to make more empty promises about what he 'CAN' do if we only give him four more years. He was a crap shoot the first time and it turned out badly. So we pick up the dice and do "what" again? Why?
This election has to do with Obama failing to produce after making umpteen promises to suck you in if you were indeed that stupid to be sucked in. This election is about the ECONOMY and not all the Team Obama side show acts being performed in the Circus Obama main tent.
Blunders? Not Just Lies...
Lets talk FACTS again. I know they are those pesky things liberals avoid but it seems that in less than four short years that Obama has added a historical amount of debt to an already outrageous debt when he took office. How so you ask? Easy really. From 1789 until 2008 all the US Presidents combined added $6.3 trillion to the debt. Obama has again made history by adding $6.5 trillion in just one term. Warm fuzzy time? Are you feeling it now? Are you understanding it?
Obama constantly plays the blame game even this far into his administration. What is pathetic is that his sheeple seem to find that acceptable. Maybe it's a lifestyle thing that I was never taught. I was always taught to take responsibility for my own actions and have tried to always man up when I have to. Obama missed that lesson.
What amazes me is the amount of hypocrisy constantly on display by Team Obama. Here he was just on 60 Minutes with Steve Kroft saying, "Oh I think that, you know, as president I bear responsibility for everything--to some degree." Then he turns around and says that of the $6.5 trillion of added budget deficit only 10% of it can be attributed to him and his administration. I'm not a mathematician but looking at the amount of the stimulus, which is all debt, and doing some division with $6.5 trillion I don't arrive at 10% even using that wasted amount of money. Just using that figure is far above his 10% claim.
Another amazement is the amount of gall Obama has to continually just lie his way across the country. Does anyone really fall for his snake oil routine after what you've seen the past four years? Then when anyone calls time out for a bit of fact checking what do I usually see and actually sometimes experience? All the sudden we're all racists or bigots because we don't buy into Obama's failed policies. It has nothing to do with him being an abject failure and fraud now, does it?
Then some fool happens along to claim something Obama said out on the stump is gospel. It went like this, “federal spending since I took office has risen at the slowest pace of any President in almost 60 years." The problem is the fool actually believes that. This calculated deception was just that - a deception and immediately summarized as such in a Wall Street Journal article:
“There is, now, a house-of-cards feel about this administration. It became apparent some weeks ago when the President talked on the stump – where else? – about an essay by a fellow who said spending growth [under Obama] is actually lower than that of previous Presidents. This was startling to a lot of people, who looked into it and found the man had left out most spending from 2009, the first year of Mr. Obama’s Presidency. People sneered: The President was deliberately using a misleading argument to paint a false picture! But you know, why would he go out there waiving an article that could immediately be debunked? Maybe because he thought it was true. That’s more alarming, isn't it, the idea that he knows so little about the effects of his own economic program that he thinks he really is a low spender.”
Why would he wave an article that is so easily debunked? Because there are enough idiots out there who just might believe every word this pathological liar can serve up. That's why.

Don't believe the Rex Nuttings or Barack Obamas of the world, President Obama has not protected taxpayers at all.
It's Always So Easy To Spend Other People's Money...
So this weekend we had our Crazy Uncle Joe Biden out on the stump spinning away at how all these astronomical budget deficits year after year in the Obama administration are the Bush administration's fault. He was out there using the same flawed Democratic talking points that we always hear. What none of them ever mention is the fact that the money appropriator (Congress) was in Democratic hands from January of 2007 until January of 2011. Why is it that they keep forgetting that crucial point. Presidents propose budgets, they don't enact the legislation. Why is it that Obama has continually run deficits of over a trillion a year absent any budget being passed? I reckon that was Bush's fault too. This administration has yet to have any budget passed due to the US Senate doing nothing. The Democrats don't want a budget and don't want one for obvious reasons.
Most of Biden's talking points have been previously debunked but the spiel is the spiel. It's always someone elses's fault. It's more convenient that way than to admit that your administration's economic policies (Keynesian as a matter of fact) failed once again even though they were a known failure when you tried them again.
What I find strange is that Team Obama thinks that the American people are so stupid that reelection will happen based upon the constant presentation of what is the opposite of reality. Maybe this will prove to be another historic first but I can only pray that it will not be the case. Are there really that many stupid people walking around in our nation a second time? What is reality to Obama isn't really reality at all. It's made up just like a lot of him is fictional.
We're On The Edge Of The Cliff As A Nation...
Notice that all the people up there on that cliff are blind folded. May I suiggest to you that if you have your blinders on that you remove them before the election on November 6th of 2012. Removing them afterwards will prove to be too late.
There should be a litany of questions you, as a voter, ask yourself "before" stepping into that voting booth. One of the biggest is, "Are you better off than you were four years ago?" If not then why vote for the cause of the majority of your misery? Gas prices through the roof, grocery shopping is agonizing and your money has been severely devalued. Just the little things in life and one huge national debt that has to be dealt with by more than talking it to death.
QUOTE OF THE DAY: Venezuelan leader, Hugo Chavez, says: "If I were American, I'd vote for Obama." Since Venezuela is about to have an election too, I wonder if Obama will say, "If I were Venezuelan, I'd vote for Chavez?"
