The Same Sad Rhetoric
You've Got To Be Kidding Me
Hard deadlines set by Obama be damned. This is the same Democratic Party that held the reins from 2007 until January 2011. The same party that hasn’t passed a budget lately. What a bunch of gutless wonders sitting up their pontificating who can’t do their job according to the US Constitution. Then Obama wants to lecture people about leadership. He spent a total of about three hours this week on the debt crisis where he was going to take the reins. I think the reins took charge of him as usual. Some one stick a bit in that pony's mouth. He spent more time on the golf course this past weekend than he did trying to be a leader who he's not.
This is from an Independent, not a Democrat or a Republican. I'll never let some party platform or doctrine guide my thinking or make my decisions for me. Neither of them, at this point, have the answer. Why? I’ll tell you exactly why. These are the very same career, professional pick pockets who got this country turned upside down. The answer isn’t to spend more of the people’s money who actually pay taxes in this nation. It isn’t to raise taxes even more so that they can continue to spend more. If you don’t believe that, take a hard look at yourself before you accuse me.
Obama, if you watch him closely, is a demagogue. He has doubled the national debt in just short of three years with nonsense spending that this country doesn’t need now. It’s to support his “agenda.” What about the agenda of “We, the People…?” Some readers need to bother, for maybe once in their skinny little life, to read the US Constitution, the Declaration of Independence and any other history, actual history, they can get their hands on. The 4th of July is coming so make yourself useful.
Not once in his speech did he offer any proposals to reduce spending. It was all about taxing people and pointing fingers by creating Boogie Men. The latest is the Corporate Jet Boogie Man. Taxing people isn’t what has led us to the brink of bankruptcy. Obama, and his cronies, have spent more in two short years than it took any administration ever to accumulate and he wants to accumulate more? He made history. What a historic occasion. All you rationalizers out there give me some rationalization that contains reason, logic and fiscal common sense..
If this is the way, to set a “hard deadline to pass tax increases” by August 2nd, he can go piss up a rope. That’s his answer and has been from the beginning. He didn’t want to cut spending one skinny penny since the onset of what we are witnessing. Then he gets backed in the corner. So who does he send as his sacrificial lamb to try to ram his agenda down everyone’s throat? None other than Joe Biden. That was destined to fail from the onset.
His “entering the fray” to display his leadership ability has been an absolute joke this week. He came out with the same attitude that he had when he sent Biden into the fray. We need to increase taxes in order to begin to pay off a $14.3 trillion dollar deficit. It doesn’t take a degree in rocket science to know that there isn’t enough money available in this country of ours to make a dent in it as long as spending levels keep increasing as he has proposed. He calls it “investment“ while the rest of us see it as excessive spending which we can‘t afford ot do anymore. He totally lacks any leadership ability other than to run his mouth with the same tired rhetoric we have become accustomed to. It wasn’t the answer then and won’t be the answer now.
Then he has Geithner sounding the alarm that we will default. That’s a total and utter lie. This is the same guy, who when he was Under Secretary of the Treasury under Clinton,. came up with the idea that every American should own a house. We see what has happened with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and the housing bubble that took 10 years to come to fruition over an idiot trying to think. This nation has more than enough revenue coming in every month to pay the interest on the debt these same idiots helped accumulate. I call an idiot an idiot so you’ll have to excuse me.
Lets talk facts instead of talking nonsense like Mediscare is involving. The federal government collects enough revenue where 55% of the interest and principal could be paid. The social security benefits, Medicare and the military budget can be met and the country survive. So what gets cut? The entitlement, true entitlement, goodies that these political goons have fostered for longer than I can remember. Read the US Constitution and see what it says the primary role of the “limited” federal government is and is“supposed” to be. Not the mockery of a federal, bloated bureaucracy we are seeing. Obama wants it to grow some more after increasing its size 17% in two short years. How productive are those jobs he created? Ask yourself that and then think seriously about where he wants to take our great nation.
The interest on the debt at present is $18 billion a month. There is plenty of revenue available to pay that interest. This involves pain across the board so brace yourselves. The political idiots on Captiol Hill don’t like pain when it is their skin in the game. Their skin being able to warm those same cushions in their chamber election after election. So lets just play pretend and put the entire burden on the tax paying citizen’s shoulders one more time? If you find that acceptable then I think that you need to go see a shrink.
All this “but what about my favorite project or special interest group” is disgusting. It should be unacceptable to any American of either political party. Obama told the nation that the times of “big money” setting the agenda were going to be over under his administration. Have you seen that? Not one bit. It’s the same old song coming out of a different set of lips.
All I have seen is Obama surrounding himself with the same old bureaucrats that helped create this mess in the first place. Geithner being a primary stooge. He’s a career bureaucrat, not an economist. A White House full of Czars who are basically crazier than a bunch of coots if you bother to look. How about axing all those elites and putting their staffs on unemployment where they belong? Get in line behind all the hard working Americans who have lost their jobs because of excessive regulations and an oversized government so full of itself that it’s pathetic.
What we’re seeing is the waging of class warfare by someone who claimed he was going to be “The Great Uniter.“ What you’re seeing is a culture of corruption and graft that has been inbred for decades where they think this is not about “We, the People…” anymore and has become about “They Themselves.,,” So that’s acceptable because you’re a Democrat or Republican? Where is your head?
