Obama Switch: "Eat Your Peas" To "Eat The Rich"
The Old Election Year Switcheroo!
A brief stroll down memory lane takes us back to 2008 when a young, upstart novice politician named Barack Hussein Obama promised us so much and so far has delivered so little but there is always "hope." By the way for those who voted for him, "How's that Hopey Changey Thing Going For You? He was "The One" anointed by the Lame Stream Media who was going to "change" the way Washington DC did business. Like he ever really could huh? He was going to part the oceans and heal the planet.
He was dubbed the "Great Uniter" who was going to put partisan politics down for a nappy-poo. Didn't last long did it? Not long atall. Whatever happened to the rise of the oceans receding and him healing the planet? I'm asking his supporters, not those with enough common sense to recognize snake oil when it is served up all fiery like.
And Those At His Altar Prayed...
I never associate the word "humility" and Obama. There probably won't be a humble bone in his body until November of 2012. We had to humble Jimmie Carter too. That is beyond being an oxymoron. He's about as humble as Attila The Hun, no offense to Attila. Knowledge of his own limitations? Really? How's all that job creation he promised progressing? We're only in the longest recovery from a recession since the Great Depression. But don't attribute that to his lack of leadership, according to him anyway. It's always someone else's fault. Is there a pattern here or not?
What happened next should set anyone back a little. For the next 18 months, while unemployment was steadily rising despite his promised stimulus (that's our money) plan would prevent it from ever rising above 8 percent, he spent that year and a half shoveling those nasty Obamacare peas onto our plate that the majority of us said not only no to but hell no! The country was burning and this egomaniac was intent on having his way, no matter what anyone thought. Remember that one in November.
Then after that smoke cleared he told us it was now time to "eat our peas." He made the Jolly Green Giant jump for joy with that outburst. The pea futures market shot through the roof on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. Hoo, hoo, hoo Green Giant time.
This Needs To Be Aired During The Coming Campaign Very Often
He was only kidding you see about eating our peas. He wouldn't know peas from brussels sprouts He has no plan to control his out of control spending because it is his to own up to, and he won't do that either. It's always someone else's fault that he doesn't care about ever balancing a budget, much less having one that even his own party doesn't shellac to kingdom come.
So now down he goes to Florida on the campaign trail he hasn't been off of since assuming office and darned if his tune hasn't changed from being "The Great Uniter" to "The Great Divider." You see since he couldn't bring himself to the "eat your peas" stage of cutting spending and the national debt his mantra has changed to "Eat The Rich." That's now his solution to all our problems. It's all the rich people's fault and he wants all their peas to sooth his excessive spending diet. But guess what? He could tax Lottie, Dottie and Everybody (that would include you) 100% and it wouldn't help. But since he doesn't have a record to run on he needs to have a whipping post to take his lack of leadership frustrations out on.
Better Than A Cheeseburger Moochelle?
So as we move into the next few months expect Obama to be filled with his vitriol and class warfare strategies of being The Great Divider. What happened to uniting the country and being the President In Shining Armor? And what about the oceans receding and the planet healing? Just the first of many empty suited rhetorical speeches. I'll tell you what happened. He failed and continues to fail.
Just what we need now is to tax the people who create jobs out of existence. That sounds like a very sound idea now, doesn't it? How much fairer that is than requiring EVERYONE to pay their fair share...
The vetting of Obama that should have occurred in 2008 continues.
