Obama's On A Roll
Bad Luck Or Bad Timing?
Back during the election cycle of 2008, many of us with common sense and the ability to research sounded the alarm that it wasn't the right time in our nation's history to gamble with an inexperienced, unqualified candidate who aspired to the highest office of this nation. Even Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden were out on the campaign trail warning the Democratic masses that Obama was an empty suit and not qualified to be the POTUS. To compound the situation, the Republican Party ended up with RINO McCain as payback for being loyal all those years. The gamble was that there would be time to On-The-Job train someone to be the chief executive of the country who had never run anything other than his mouth in life. It was a terrible gamble with the odds against the American tax payer.
Historically, Obama will be a matter of history. For the very first time a black (kinda, sorta, maybe) individual was elected to the highest office of the greatest nation on earth. That will be a matter of history. So will Obamacare which was jammed down the throats of the majority of Americans who opposed it from the get-go and the opposing majority has grown as we have begun to "find out what's in it." Thanks to Pelosi and Reid for crafting a final bill behind closed doors when we were promised CSPAN and transparency.
The Blame Shifter-in-Chief did a remarkable job of spending almost a trillion dollars in short order called a stimulus bill which was really no more than used as payback for past political favors to the chosen sheeple at the federal feed bucket. That was another historical first. The largest federal appropriations bill ever passed. They're still trying to ride that "millions of jobs created or saved" leg to this very day. You remember. Spending that much of our money was going to insure that unemployment never rose above 8%. Where is it now? Did it rise above 10%? Ask yourself the hard questions when you think about Obama.
Now he has made history once again. Thass right folks! He's a real cereal box President this one. They're bound to put his likeness on a box of Wheaties when this fiasco is over. He has achieved another first, this time at the tax payer's expense once again. Whatchu talkin' about Frog Prince? I heard you.
How About Another Round Of Golf?
In just 945 days in office, Obama has increased the national debt a whooping $4,270,000,000,000. Never been done by any President before and it better not be done by any President again in the future. When he assumed office the figure was $10,626,000,000,000. It just topped $14,645,000,000,000. That's a whole lot of zeroes in anyone's book. This guy doesn't think in the billions but just loves those trillions. Don't believe me? Check out the National Debt Clock at the link.

He has increased the national debt faster than a speeding bullet with more smoke and mirrors than a locomotive. Now one of you wise sages out there please bother to inform us who is going to have to repay a debt like that? Then inform us further what they have to show us for spending that amount of money in a frenzy. And keep in the back of your mind, he's not finished yet, until 2012 rolls around mind you. He likes to tell us how he is going to slay the national debt dragon. Have you been listening to that? Are you believing it when his lips start moving? Obama is "agenda driven" and his agenda is spending more of our tax dollars and not cutting the spending needed to start putting the dragon to sleep. His dragon loves to munch on our, and future generation's, tax dollars.
But try reading his lips when he says that. Every time he utters that it is followed by spending proposals. Heard of his wanting to start an "infrastructure" bank? How about we start a "reduce the national debt" bank instead and pass a balanced budget or two along the way? A trillion itself is 1,000 billions. Hard to wrap your head around that one? Think of it this way. One trillion seconds ago the entire land mass of North America was covered in an ice sheet thicker than a ton of bricks stacked one on top of another. About a billion seconds ago Billy Bob Joe Ray Clinton was at the end of his second term.
Did George W. Bush spend more than he should have? There is no denying that. He increased the national debt by $4.9 trillion. But wait! He wasn't so bad after all huh because it took him 2,648 days to achieve that feat. Obama is making Bush look like a cheapskate. Every day our national debt under Obama is increasing by 4,247,000,000 dollars. Isn't that a comfort that he believes he can keep doing that to the American tax payer and the future generations to come?
What comes after a trillion? Here's what you need to do. Go to China and tell every last citizen there to take off their sandals and have a seat. Then start counting all the fingers and toes of them all until you reach that number. Then come on back and let us know. The sad thing is that once you finish that task, most of us will have gone through the pearly gates. So I'll give you the answer. It's a quadrillion but for heaven's sake, don't tell Obama and his minions.

President Obama has just confirmed that the DC earthquake occurred on a rare and obscure fault-line, apparently known as "Bush's Fault".Obama also announced that the Secret Service and Maxine Waters continue an investigation of the quake's suspicious ties to the Tea Party. Conservatives, however, have proven that it was caused by the founding fathers rolling over in their graves
