Oh? You Haven't Caught On Yet!

Updated on October 18, 2013

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...

"Vote It," "Like" It, "Tweet" It, "Pin " It, "Share It" With Your Followers. Time to let em read it and keep reading it.

As Always,

The Frog Prince

      tsadjatko - Our 401(K)'s are only up temporarily due to massive Fed money printing. The excess of loanable cash relative to borrowing demand has pushed interest rates to record lows, pumping up both stock and bond markets. But once borrowing demand picks up, the excess fiat cash, at least $20 trillion printed in the past five years, will cascade out of bank vaults into the money supply, and will be multiplied nine-fold via fractional reserve banking. Interest rates will spike, and stocks and bonds will tumble. This is the simple reason why QE never works - it just mitigates a portion of short term malaise at the expense of much greater long term pain.

      Frog - As Jim DeMint once opined, "A great President with a lousy Congress is a waste of a great President. And a great Congress with a lousy President is a waste of a great Congress." Great statesmen are great, but you need them in both the Oval Office and highly saturated in Congress to accomplish anything. With centrists and progressives making up 65% of the voting base, how do we ever get there?

      drbj - Far from leadership and it 2014 we can turn this around. Now Obama is "demanding" that the House negotiate with him on immigration. They need to tell him to go screw himself.

      How can anyone in Congress act rationally with a president who refuses to negotiate or compromise? And denigrates people as well. I caught our leader on TV last night declaring: "If you (Republicans) don't like some of our policies, then win an election!" Is that leadership?

      Frog, this is YOUR BEST political hub yet. Many people haven't caught on despite Obama flagrant acts become more apparent each day. The Lieberals are just believing their inane, leftist propaganda that Obama is ALL GOOD and can do NO WRONG in their eyes although reality is quite different. Obama is using the American people as a pawn and so many are too idiotically comatose to realize this fact!

      Well Stu, the media will be quick to herald what "we" got from all this drama - our 401ks are up at record levels know anyone who has their 401k in this stock market? Young people might, but they are young - by the time they want that money it will be gone. You can bet the rich are getting richer from this drama though. They are the only ones with money to invest. "Spread the wealth" Obama? Yeah more like "Middle class, Spread 'Em Baby"

      Stu - We'll be back to square one over aand over again until we have some statesmen in office rather than spineless politicians who keep milking us.

      No federal budget, no relief from Obamacare, no federal expense cuts, no entitlement reform, and no federal debt reduction plan. Nero is still fiddling while Rome burns. All we got from all this drama is yet another (short term) increase in the debt ceiling. By February we'll be back to where we just were - out of borrowing authority, but DC unwilling to cut even a penny of its sacrosanct spending.

      Vote every singe idiot out. Apparently once elected, politicians are in it for themselves. This is our government and it does not belong to Congress or the administration!

      Jim, once people realize that none of this circus show we are seeing has anything to do with what is good for the country, we might start seeing some changes.

      All of this political posturing, finger pointing, name calling, and balancing acts is all about them. By them I mean our elected representatives who now consider themselves Royalty. They actually have no idea what "we the people" desire, and could care less if they did know.

      Once elected, they change hats immediately and are only concerned with their own highly lucrative careers. These were never meant to be career positions. They were to serve a term in office and then return to their regular lives.

      A majority of citizens in this country are in favor of term limits, yet we can't make that happen. Or can we?

      My plan for the next election is to take my election material, scratch off every incumbent, and then take a hard look at those new guys who want the job. If every voter in the country would do this, we would not be suffering from the likes of Harry Reid or John McCain now.

      In other words, if your in now, your out after the next election.
