Obama Goes On "Stupid Is As Stupid Does" Tour

I always wake up with the hope that President Obama will change his course, see that his programs are not only failures – completely – with regard to the economy, but also unpopular by a vast majority. Each morning I read either he is vacationing again, or he’s back on the campaign trail pushing his own failed agenda. Now we know because the information verifies what we have long suspected of the man, Mr. Obama is “losing” it. Not that this article can be verified – but because it confirms what so many of us already know, it rings very true.

The latest frustrating news is Mr. Obama will go back in the saddle again, campaigning for his latest stimulus. Let’s take a trip down memory lane and see how well the other four (or was it five? Six??) similar packages helped our economy.

Well – we all know the Stimulus For Clunkers for example was a resounding success.

Huh? It wasn’t? But this administration keeps telling me that if they didn’t implement this genius program car sales would have been much worse.

Forgive me. It has been a number of years since I attended college and had to take that business course I really hated—but isn’t it completely impossible by any measure to actually determine such claims? Where in any academic papers or other such writings does such an economic measurement exist? Oh, it doesn’t? This is something conjured up uniquely by this admistration?

Or could it be the Obama team is so full of super smarty pants that they can come up with their own invented economic indicators and measurements. “______ [pick a number any number because it’s all fiction not factual] jobs would have been lost if we didn’t do all the things we--[this brilliant Obama administration] did.”

How does one measure this ridiculous claim? How can the main lame media allow this administration to utter such nonsensical blather without an attack? Imagine the Bush administration making such claims!

The answer: One cannot measure it. This is double speak for, “It was an utter failure. Cash for clunkers actually took away sales from future sales.” And the economic proof of that is while there was a spike during the cash for clunkers, there was a dramatic drop off of sales practically the moment it ended.

Now Mr. Obama is going to use our precious tax dollars to tour the country to convince us this same method needs to be used again to stimulate our economy. He’ll speak to faithful people in small venues. His staff can’t fill places he goes to any more. Yet he’s still going to campaign. He hates being the President; it’s annoying to him. He loves the crowds of lemmings and he loves to go on the campaign trail. He doesn’t care one lick that he’s wasting untold tax dollars on this folly. He doesn't like the hard work it takes to be President.

Gee, ya think? How about the fact he has played more golf in one year than George Bush played his entire eight years as President?

He's not happy being President and facing the duties he's supposed to be doing? He's "losing it?" Who knew?

Just how stupid does this administration think we are? How stupid is it to implement an economic policy that has not only failed once but over and over again?

Stupid is as Stupid does!

Remember to vote in November. Remember to research and pay close attention to the candidates leading up to 2012 and be an INFORMED voter by replacing this man who is in way, way over his head.

      I've been saying that for quite some time now Harvey. At least Jimmy Carter won't have that distinction any longer. Mr. Obama will replace him as the absolute worst ever. Thanks for reading and writing Harvey! Carol

      Cjv, Studid is the key word. When he won the Presidential election even he said,53% is a mandate, now 60 & 70% of what people want means nothing to him.

      B.O. is the worst President we have ever had, and hopefully ever will. H

      Thank you for leaving your comments jayman. Let's hope that this President is a one term only President and won't even run again. We can only look to God in hope for our future.

      Good article and excellent observation. Obama hates everything (except flying on Air Force One) his job, the country, the people, and may be the most negative divisive, polarizing, president ever.

      I really miss seeing a look on a president's face that shows he loves his job, his country, his people, and takes pride in it's successes, not it's failures.

      I'm happy that Michelle finally found one thing about America to be proud of, there is hope for us yet ;-)

      Reu - you are ABSOLUTELY right - that's why the progressives want to banish history and teach revisionist history in school - so they can push their agenda on our children. If our children were taught in our public school system about our nation's history as it was taught when I went to school - we would never have an Obama as President right now! The U.S. public school system needs a total overhaul and I knew it when my kids were attending school. Two months on Martin Luther King - while he is without a doubt, an historical figure of prominence and great importance, TWO MONTHS? Then a month of "earth day" - not just a day A MONTH. And two seconds on George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, James Adams and another two on Christopher Columbus to teach what a mass murderer he was...It drove me NUTS! And we couldn't afford private school - so I would just correct the crap they were getting in school when they'd get home.

      I remember this because we were brainwashed under this flag. I want to forget it too. But if we forget, we can make the same mistakes.

      Thanks Reu! I had forgotten the meaning of all the symbols on that flag! carol

      I'll answer about the symbolism of the red Soviet flag, because I remember it from my school time.

      The hammer symbolized the working class, and the sickle symbolized the peasants, and there was a red star above hammer and sickle, which represented the rule of the Communist Party. The red color of the flag symbolized the blood that has been spilled by workers and peasants in their fight for free socialistic county!

      Oh, my....

      Thanks Tim. And heck no, I'm not the least bit surprised. It's just a bit daunting when what we suspected is essentially verified. OH we are SO screwed as a nation with this dolt as President!

      Looking forward to Thursday as well!

      Carol -

      Are you surprised? He only knows how to campaign. He doesn't know how to govern. I'm looking forward to having you on the show Thursday.

      All the Best,

      The man was never taught to love his country, nor to respect and love those who died for that freedom! He has never endured the heart ache and stress of starting a business in this country, therefore he demonizis those who made it through the process! He is a big talking fraud and a true disgrace to his post!

      Vladimir, you know, I probably should know what that hammer stands for, but it is escaping me now. What does it mean?

      I wish he would shut up and go play golf for the next two years. We are better off when he is out of the loop and playing golf.

      Keep on hubbing!

      Carol,

      This says it all where I'm concerned and I said it on Sheri Sapp's hub last night.

      "Sheri,

      I heard a small hint about your question if Barry is capable of leading. An unnamed source saw BO, and Barry walking and BO has the leash, and Barry was wearing the collar!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Obama is a fraud plain and simple. He was never the great speaker, he was actually the great teleprompter reader. He has no interest in the wars or actually rolling up his sleeves to run this country. He is unfit for office. I hope November turns out the way we hope, but sometimes I question some of the candidates that will be running. Things could backfire but I pray i am wrong.

      How can you expect someone who hates America to be a decent president? It's impossible. Obama likes attention and the title and that's where it ends. It would be an utter miracle for him to do some actual honest work that made a positive impact on this country. Great hub, Carol :)
