- Politics and Social Issues
Oh? You Haven't Caught On Yet!
Took a long weekend to travel to Pensacola for my only son's wedding but none of the nonsense our politicians like to partake in seemed to get any better. What actually did happen though was Obama, Reid, Pelosi and their ilk became more transparent about their motivations to shutdown the federal money muncher called our federal government. If you are a Lame Stream Media junkie you may not have heard a peep about the hypocrisy emitting forth from Reid and Obama over the weekend.
The last few articles I have written revolved around the "politics" behind this nonsense and efforts to punish the American people for these idiots not doing their job for year after year after year. We're to be punished for their incompetence. The same thing happened during sequestration, which by the way was Obama's idea, so it continues on. It seems that Obama has awakened to the fact that he is now a lame duck President who has expended his worst ideas for naught. But being the ideologue he is he is determined to stuff more of his socialistic ideas down our craw. Me? I've had my fill of this incompetent person acting like he knows which way is up.
Soon to turn to # 17
Paying attention to agendas and politicians should be important at this juncture as we go bankrupt. The Democrats agenda under the guidance of Harry Reid, not Barack Obama since he is a follower, is spend, spend and spend some more. Then tax, tax and tax some more. That's exactly his agenda. The majority of the American people do NOT agree with that agenda according to the polls I am looking at. What Reid has been doing is making an inattentive public look at the shiny object of a government shutdown engineered by himself and Obama and placing blame on anyone, and everyone, but themselves. It's those damned anarchists you see who don't see a money munching monster as the cure to our ills.
This is all about Harry Reid losing his job in Harry's mind. His solution now is 1) forget about the sequester and give Obama more money to spend like he hasn't already wasted enough of our tax dollars. Harry the sequestration was Obama's idea. Remember? Then #2 is to extend the debt ceiling until AFTER the 2014 elections. Why is every decision lately geared to "until after the 2014" elections. Is that decision to the benefit of the American people or the benefit of people like Harry Reid who is basically useless? Delaying the business mandate of Obamcare until AFTER the 2014 election was made why? If you can't answer that then please don't vote ever again. The goodies of Obamacare were front loaded so that the pain of the law wouldn't be felt until after Obama had his reelection chance.
Reid's attempt at extending the debt limit by $1.1 trillion until after the 2014 elections failed as it very well should have. Can't get anymore politically transparent than this latest move. They've been kicking the can down the road election cycle after election cycle since Obama assumed office and it's now time for that ploy to stop.
Well Deserved Award!
So then along wanders Obama into his Saturday radio address and if this doesn't beat all for agenda outing I'm not sure what will. Now his spin is that the government needs to end its shutdown so Congress can pass illegal immigration reform. Like that's the most important issue facing our government? Kick the cock roaches out of this country and that problem is solved.
Obama turned down a House proposal that would re-open the government and raise the debt ceiling for six (6) weeks. That would require him to agree on a framework for negotiating on the long term budget issues. He blamed his "shutdown" on the Republicans again and threw out his shiny objects again - jobs, education and immigration reform. He's talk the jobs talk amny times and we haven't seen any jobs walk to date.
Obama has openly stated recently, and this should give any America loving liberal pause to think, that his number one priority is immigration reform and turning undocumented Democrats into documented ones. There's that political spin on issues of importance again. Need I remind Obama that the word "illegal" is an issue with many actual Americans? A visible sign of Obama's stinking thinking was to allow thousands of illegal immigrants, joined by numerous Democratic Congress people (some of them ended up being arrested) to demonstrate on the 'CLOSED BY OBAMA" Mall in this nation's Capitol.
We've seen his treatment of veterans and the war memorials so compare the two you freedom loving liberals.
Go Back Home And Get In Line And Wait!
Obama's poll ratings are plunging and for good reason - his lack of leadership ability. He never had any, other than rhetorical, from the beginning so I often wonder how they got as high as they did. Talk is cheap. We know that now and should have know it then.
The main priority of any leader should be his people. In this case it is "We, the People..." not a pack of illegal immigrants who broke the law to come here in the first place. I would suggest that Obama and Reid get their priorities straight though that is just about as useless a hope as voting for Obama to be the President of this great nation was. It's looking more and more like it is going to have to be "We, the People..." who end up righting the ship because those we have elected have become self-serving rather than being public servants. Stay tuned...

The Frog Prince
- Catching On Yet?
Hopefully by this time the intelligent people of this nation have caught on about the elitist priorities on Capitol Hill. Our low information voters could care less They just want their goodies.
