To Pander Or Not Pander!
The Subject Now Is Taxes
I often wonder if politicians are the only select, elite group that are issued those special licenses to pander. But then on second thought since the present administration doesn't agree that the voters of this nation should have to provide a photo ID in order to vote then surely we shouldn't have to give them license to pander. That is just their electoral right since we were stupid enough to believe their nonsense that put them in office in the first place.
The present Panderer-In-Chief has this down to a fine art. He perfects the art as his miserable record of failure leaves him no choice other than to pander any which way but loose. One has to attempt anything, and/or everything in Obama's case, in order to continue the life style he and Moochelle think they are entitled to. So lets issue licenses. what do you say? No sense in their driving along pandering at will, spewing forth lies at every turn without the proper credentials now I suppose.
The latest panderfest Obama is going to undertake is taking on those dirty rich people who aren't paying their fair share even though they pay the majority of income taxes collected while 50% of his loyal pander subjects pay not a dime. We surely can see how fair that is now, can't we? All this on top of the fact that the recession, which is over but really isn't over though he says it's over, has the economy on anemic legs and unemployment stagnant for how many months running? When on a monthly basis any jobs being added to the economy don't even meet population growth there is a problem. When the number of people applying for social security disability amounts to 85K folks in the month of June versus the number of jobs added equaling only 80K jobs added, there is a problem. At least in most people's minds except that of our Panderer-In-Chief.
This Is What He Said In 2009. And What Did He Say Today?
Now understand the art of pandering for what it is. In that video he said "we have not proposed..." He just did and the proposal he just made won't kick in until "after he is re-elected." See the difference in what he said then and the panderfest he is wants to perpetrate now? It's called class warfare at its finest and just imagine Obama doing that in an election year when he initially ran on being the "Great Uniter" who will make the oceans recede and the planet heal. What utter nonsense You still don't raise taxes on the providers of jobs in a ship wrecked economy whether Obama wants to get re-elected or not. That goes for his Democrat buddies trying to hold on tight to their ability to spend recklessly.
The other thing one must pay close attention to during a panderfest is the use, or misuse, of numbers and fractions. Today he stepped up to the plate demanding that taxes be raised on anyone making over $250K a year, those he classifies as millionaires and the big, bad rich. Depending upon where you live and the already prevailing entire tax structure of your state and community $250K may, or may not be, considered "rich." He's even to the left of San Fran Nan on this one since she sees being rich in the millionaire range.
So lets get to his use of the fraction he used. He admitted that "3%" of small businesses would be hit with this increase. First of all, the 3% would come into dispute but lets assume he is correct, which he usually isn't. What he is talking about is increasing the taxes on around say 900K small businesses. Close enough to a million to be a million? The recession is over officially but ask the average person on the street and they'll tell you that ain't so. For those who don't own a small business a lot of this is lost on you. Small businesses provide the majority of jobs in our economy. Those owners are typically strapped for capital to invest in an economy like ours. I know that I am. So lets make it harder for them to expand their payrolls and create the needed jobs for the "middle class and poor" that Obama professes to be worried about. That's the ticket?
Understand something very clearly now. Obama isn't losing sleep at night over the "middle class or the poor." He doesn't think about anyone's job but his own the first thing when he wakes up in the morning. He is but a pandering politician so get a grasp on reality.
No Love Lost Here For Sure...
What we are witnessing as a nation regarding Obama is an administration in a panic and approaching critical mass. He promised many things to many people and consistently failed to produce. His campaign has collected tons of money and spent it running negative television ads, often negative to the point of being false and outright lies. So he resorts to the pander game whenever he can. He wants to once again be all things to all people. For those out there who aren't really familiar with the definition of the word, I will use the "learner's version" that they teach people learning to speak English:
Pander - to do or provide what someone wants or demands even though it is not proper, good, or reasonable.
You've been seeing it. Pandering to the Hispanics regarding illegal immigrants. Pandering to women conjuring up a fairy tale War on Women. Then pandering to the gay community and flip flopping on same sex marriage. He called it evolving while the rest of us call it what it is - pandering. Why doesn't the guy just have a national panderfest gathering and take a crap on the silent majority in one fell swoop? We've had to suffer through Obama's nonsense and missteps for over three years now. I have a good idea. Why don't we issue Obama a license to pander for the rest of his non-public life. It's time to maybe go back to what this nation does best - being the best nation in the world to live without some socialist wanting to "fundamentally change" our great nation.
Maybe California Deserves Him?
Leading would be much more preferable than pandering. I never expected that trait from Obama just based upon what little record that was visible when he ran initially. His tenure has only confirmed my suspicions that Obama isn't cut from Presidential timber. He was a big mistake but then again so was Jimmie Carter. We fixed that too.
Still puzzled? Ask yourself this. The headlines in the morning should read that considering that what Obama has proposed again will pay for federal spending for 8 and one half days, is it political or is is a viable solution to the excessive spending his administration wants to continue? Ask yourself that and be honest with yourself. Don't expect the Lame Stream Media to be honest with you. Do that for yourself. It's called pandering and class warfare. Is that the solution to our nation's problems?
