In Hollywood they use the term type casting to denote those who seemingly can only play one type of roll or one type of character. But what of type casting in politics? Seems our president was cast as the agent of change back in 2008. The one man capable of bringing hope and change to America. The man whose roots in community organizing could lead and propel this nation forward? But where are the goods two years into this grand experiment of leadership by America's 'first black president?'? Almost two years into his administration? And all the man seems competent at doing is to continue blaming the republicans for everything that he as president has been incapable of addressing.
Have a look at excerpts from his weekly address this week. He is speaking about his supposed efforts to turn around the economy and the jobless rate and his even more elusive accomplishments. And once again, (according to Barry) it's those obstructionist republicans who are holding America back in the face of his wondrous leadership and economic policies.
Well.....let's have a look see through the mind of a president obsessed more with his golf game than settling the problems of America,a s it concerns how he sees things.
"Too often, the Republican leadership in the United States Senate chooses to filibuster our recovery and obstruct our progress. And that has very real consequences,"
Yes, the republicans trying to staunch the flow does have consequences, but what are the alternatives? And I believe that is the point intentionally missed and intentionally misrepresented by this president. Every economist consulted over the past six months and the last two years has concluded that the "American recovery and reinvestment act" isn't working to either stabilize the economy or to create more jobs. On top of that, the country is still losing jobs at an alarming rate monthly.
Yet the president wants to filibuster on his own and continue to throttle the ship of state toward the economic icebergs that will rip our economy and our nation to shreds if we continue to burn through money like we have been doing under his presidency.
"Think about what these stalling tactics mean for the millions of Americans who've lost their jobs since the recession began. Over the past several weeks, more than two million of them have seen their unemployment insurance expire,"
Stalling tactics? Is that what fiscal restraint represents to today's liberal socialists like yourself mr. president? Apparently so. While the democrats in congress and this president continue to go in the opposite direction of the desires of the majority of Americans as it concerns fiscal restraint, this president sees those majority desires as being obstructionist. Well he has a point. It is obstructionist to his wants and desires. Just like the bucket brigades of old were obstructionist to the fires consuming homes and businesses during the great San Francisco earthquake.
We have had a major earth shattering quake to our economy and Americans have been trying to form bucket brigades to quench the flames and restore common sense in the aftermath. And all this president can seem to do is to complain about their efforts while sending in his federal agencies to oppose every state and local initiative to stop the flow of red ink. Not to mention their taunts and attacks on those who have formed and are joining the ranks of the new American Tea Party.
Every economist not on the payroll of the DNC or the Obama administration has categorically stated that Obama's unbridled spending cannot be sustained. That a major crash of our economy is in the offing if we do not commit to a major sea change right now. Even the Congressional Budget Office has tried to warn the people, but Obama laments that if we don't spend more billions that we don't have on unemployment benefits and other programs? Then more people are going to suffer and his plans are being thwarted.
How about this mr. president? What say we actually do something to create jobs instead of simply pouring money we don't have on people who are out of work. It's a simple premise...Create jobs, people work, the more people work the more taxes are collected, the more money is spent and the faster the economy recovers and the faster people are restored to solvency.
But no!!!!!!!!!!! Let's just do nothing about these people who have no jobs and no hope for jobs. Let's just keep paying out unemployment and in the end it will all get better on its own. Right.
More of the rhetoric.....
"They say we shouldn't provide unemployment insurance because it costs money," chided Obama. "So after years of championing policies that turned a record surplus into a massive deficit, including a tax cut for the wealthiest Americans, they've finally decided to make their stand on the backs of the unemployed," he said.
Hello mr. emperor. It's not conservatives making their stand on the backs of the unemployed, it's the democrats and their socialist brethren and the Marxists lurking in the shadows of your administration who are doing that.
"They've got no problem spending money on tax breaks for folks at the top who don't need them and didn't even ask for them; but they object to helping folks laid off in this recession who really do need help," Obama said.
As Ronald Reagan might have said? "Well there you go again Barry."
It's the economy stupid! It's jobs stupid! And you don't fix either by simply raising taxes and increasing spending and expanding and creating more social (list) programs. You have to lower taxes and decrease spending to turn this train wreck around. But you can't do that while clinging to your socialist revolutionary allegiances now can you.
See you at the polls this November mr. president. We'll see how this all works out with the people and their sentiments concerning who has been filibustering their lives and remaining as entrenched obstructionists to their hopes and dreams then.
PS....In the free market of individual beliefs? This man doesn't rate to have his name or tile capitalized by me. It's a free market concerning thinking and opinions. At least for the moment. Therefore, this man doesn't rate any upper case notoriety on any level.
