There Is No Boogie Man
Some One Needs To Tell Obama That
Most adults realize that the boogie man doesn't live underneath their bed. As parents, occasionally, we might try to frighten our child into doing something by saying, "If you don't eat all your vegetables the boogie man is gonna getcha." That ploy doesn't work too well with most adults because we know which end is up. But notice I said "with most adults." Obama seems to still either believe in the boogie man, or he thinks he can use the boogie man to have people drink his elixir to ward off the meanies, or maybe he flat out is the boogie man.
But I have to admit that he does have a certain segment of the population convinced that there is indeed a boogie man usually hiding around every corner. At first he used the ploy in trying to convince people that if they didn't nod their heads and agree with his socialistic policies he was gonna sic the boogie man on us.
Remember the Stimulus Boogie Man? There was a holy terror! He sold it to his adoring masses as being the cure all for our economic problems and his henchmen passed the largest appropriations bill in this nation's history. Unemployment wouldn't ever rise above 8%, just trust him. Quick hide under the covers because the boogie man is coming if he wasn't allowed to pass a pork laden bill and create "saved" jobs. He, and snoozing Joe Biden, are still trying to convince us what a success it was as about a trillion dollars of our future generations tax dollars were flushed down the government toilet.. Government math still escapes me most of the time.
Then the Obamacare Boogie Man was conjured up. He stayed on that particular wagon selling snake oil for 18 months while unemployment skyrocketed (now there's a real boogie), he wasted trillions of our tax dollars pursuing phantoms and myths as things worsened rather than the American public seeing any improvement during his tenure as The Boogie Man-In-Chief. The economy was in dire straits if he wasn't allowed to take over 1/6th of the US economy.
Many people were hiding under their own beds during that period "hoping" for the nightmare to just go away. Even when it seemed like his grand scheme was going down in flames, he was still scheming with his fellow Democratic demons while at he same time telling the public that he was now going to focus on creating jobs. Remember that famous SOTUA? Don't ever believe what you hear. Watch what he does. They went behind closed doors and created one of the biggest boogie men that this nation has ever seen (2,700 + pages) then rammed it down ours throats. You see the Boogie Man-In-Chief and his band of leftwing nitwits knows far better what is good for us than we do. Not many of them knew what was in those pages, they just knew what was best for us whatever it said. But the latest poll I read has the majority of the population (60%) putting the hoodoo voodoo on Obamacare as being a bad idea. But Mommy! He Promised!
But alas! It seems that the American electorate is quite capable of creating our own boogie man. After two years, give or take a month or two, of his constant scare tactics we conjured up the November 2010 Boogie Man and turned it loose on his administration. He seemed humbled at first talking about how he took a shellacking and the spirit of cooperation and bipartisanship was about to blossom. He found boogie man religion it seemed. But watch what he does, not what he says. Bipartisan isn't a word the man seems to wrap his head around. After all, his demons still controlled the Senate.
His next demon up was excessive spending, something he is rather fond of. He got used to being the Spender-In-Chief, racking up deficits in two years that it took George Bush eight years to tally up. But the Boogie Man-In-Chief started creating fictitious demons for his adoring crowd. If we didn't "invest" (read - spend) more money again that we don't have then his agenda couldn't be accomplished. Boogie Man Ryan was created, him just being a simple accountant and all and not at all on par with a former community organizer from Chicago. Most Americans are of the mind that the spending needs to stop, severe budget cuts are now in order after his initial rampage on our economy and it needs to stop now and not later. Maybe he isn't listening or the shellac has worn off. Has it ever dawned on the guy that maybe we don't want his socialistic agenda to be in bed with us, much less underneath it?
Fast forward now to the Gas Price Boogie Man. Of course the problem couldn't possibly have anything to do with the Head Boogie Man and his policies or lack of them. The lack of drilling our own resources couldn't possibly be a factor? Imposing a drilling moratorium didn't contribute one iota huh? It is easily recognizable that any of his green agenda will take decades to even be feasible. So in the meantime, the American people are going to be held hostage at the gas pump while he tells us there is "no silver bullet." How much have gas prices gone up during his tenure so far? What does he attribute that to? I reckon he can blame Boogie Man Bush. Or was it the recent unrest in the Middle East?
Rather than address his own shortcomings (do we ever expect him to?) he now has created the Speculator Boogie Man. This despite the fact that his own Attorney General has stated that nothing illegal has been done that has caused the price of gas to spike. Don't you just love a good witch hunt? Speculation in the commodities market is the way that market runs. You're either betting something goes up or down. Nothing illegal about that - yet. His buddy, Boogie Man Soros, has made a fortune in the commodities market. What are the chances that the Boogie Man-In-Chief sics his new blue ribbon panel on Georgie boy, one of his main financiers? Slim to none and slim checked out and left town.
The bottom line is that he prefers to demonize those who know better than he does. He knows nothing about economics, self admittedly I might add, so it's easier to conjure up a boogie man that wants to kill Grandma or make her eat dog food. Or else create the Rich Fat Cat Boogie Man who is so selfish that they only paid about 70% of the income taxes just collected while 45% of the people paid nothing. And the list could go on and on with the Boogie Man-In-Chief pointing his bony finger at everyone, or anyone, but himself.
So now, having gotten you thinking about boogie men, maybe you can point out a few that I missed that he has created in just over two very, very long years. If not, go pull the covers over your head and keep believing your hope and change is just about to happen! The next boogie man will be turning the corner any time now!
Come 2012, we'll send Obama back underneath his bed to hide there until Michelle tells him it's alright to come out again. Space constraints keep me from sweeping all the boogie men out from under his bed so maybe you can help me out here?
Have a nice day.
