MR. OBAMA SAYS LET THEM EAT CAKE

MR. OBAMA SAYS, “LET THEM EAT CAKE.”
Mr. Obama didn’t actually say that, but he might as well have. I’ll keep my editorial comments to a minimum, Mr. Obama’s actions and INactions speak loudly enough for themselves.
This Memorial Day weekend, as is traditional for all Presidents, Mr. Obama has chosen NOT to go to a ceremony at Arlington Cemetery to honor our fallen heroes. Instead – apparently his dance card was already full. He’ll be going with Mrs. Obama to Chicago for something on the barbie -- possibly some hamburgers and wieners...And later this weekend, he’ll be hosting a party for Paul McCartney. I’m not making this up.
Louisiana’s Governor Bobby Gindal has been asking for weeks for EPA permits to make it possible to begin to put barriers into the Gulf to protect their shoreline. So far – nothing has happened. No permits, no answers as to why there will be no permits. It has been over 30 days since the oil spill began. This oil spill literally threatens an entire region of our country for an undetermined number of years. Talking heads are sent to say, “We have our foot on the neck of BP…” and if they don’t fix this, we’ll drag them out and take care of things.
1) They can’t fix it, it’s been 30 days and matters are much, much worse, not better.
2) The Coast Guard made a statement – So you’re going to pull them out? And replace them with who or what?!
3) No plan, no ideas, just empty rhetoric.
Mr. Obama says, “Let them eat cake…”
The stock market is in free-fall. Joblessness is nationally in the double digits. Mr. Obama will be having a party in Chicago and meeting a UK celebrity at the White House. “Let them eat cake…”
Europe is inches away from crashing and burning. Never mind just Greece, we are talking all of Europe. The Europeans have a system in place that the Obama administration has been implementing by increments for our own U.S. economic system. The latest, Mr. Al Franken has proposed frightening regulations by the government for our entire economic regulatory system. Scary stuff. The situation is critical. Mr. Obama says, “Let them eat cake…”
Haiti isn’t healed yet after their devastating earthquake. They are imploding. Mr. Obama says, “Let them eat cake…”
Iran has spat in the collective face of America despite Mr. Obama’s Apology tour. They are inches away from launching nuclear weapons. The American people are deeply concerned about this escalation and the Obama administration’s virtual silence on this. “Let them eat cake…”
Mr. Obama has given ONE – count them – ONE press conference since taking office. Hope, Change TRANSPARENCY? “Let them eat cake…”
Our soldiers, on this Memorial Day weekend, are dying in Iraq and Afghanistan. Many are in hospitals as I write this, dying, suffering – trying to learn to live without a limb. Mr. Obama apparently couldn’t squeeze in any plans to visit any of them. “Let them eat cake…”
This is merely a short list of just the elitist earmarks of the Obama administration and the public persona of the elitist First Couple. Our President has time for so many things – like a fund raiser for Barbara Boxer in California, stumping for Cap and Trade and Obamacare (even after it’s passed) – but he has no time for any of the above. You draw your own conclusions. I’m going for a piece of cake and then I'm going to throw up...
