Well, not in so many words … but actions really do speak so much louder than words. Of course, Michelle Obama is just like her husband. Barack Obama says one thing, which his drive-by-media propaganda machine dutifully reports! And then, he proceeds to do something entirely different, which his drive-by-media propaganda machine never, ever call him on. So Michelle Obama shows up at the Oscars to present the “best movie” award in a dress costing more the two months salary for most Americans and where a bunch of narcissistic, arrogant socialites are given $45,000 (more than the average annual salary of many Americans) gift bags. As Billy Crystal so aptly stated, “Nothing can take the sting out of the world’s economic problems like watching millionaires give each other golden statues.”
Don’t you just love how the “Hollywood élite” look down their collective noses at us and arrogantly spout liberal progressive political maxims at Americans who love their country, and then ask for massive handouts from their pal Obama and his administration to subsidize their next movie? Millions and millions of dollars are given to Hollywood millionaires to help them make more movies, and thus making themselves even more wealthy. And … they want to point at Mitt Romney for being one of the “evil rich”? Are American voters so stupid they actually buy this crap!?
Did I watch the Oscars … no, I did not! Most of those people make me sick to my stomach!
So while Michelle Obama is out schmoozing with her rich socialite liberal buddies … Barack is enlisting Janet Napolitano, Nancy Pelosi, and other major league liberal liars to run around screaming the world is coming to an end because of sequestration (which by the way, was Obama’s brain child). It is hilariously and yes, sadly, funny! Most Americans know we need to cut federal spending! But, the first time there is actually a chance that a little cutting may actually happen … the government screams doom, gloom, and the end of civilization as we know it … and the Obama’s loyal media lap-dogs gleefully spread the “official nonsense” around. And, of course, the cool aid drinkers dutifully join in Obama’s next manufactured national catastrophe and they begin their moaning, and wailing, and gnashing their teeth!
Meanwhile, back in the real world that most of us try to live in … here is the truth about the proposed sequestration numbers. It is not even a cut … it is barely a slowing of growth of federal spending!
So … Record spending, record deficit, looming financial problems on all fronts! Obama points his finger at Congress, scolding them for not doing their jobs; and then … what does he do? He quietly signs another executive order and gives them a 1.5 to 2.0 percent pay raise! Unbelievable!
Instead of cutting spending to avoid the fiscal cliff, which is a direct result of out of control government spending; Congress delays cuts, increases spending, and raises taxes.
Meanwhile Obama gives speeches in which he says, don’t you dare prevent me from spending what I have already promised … even though, once a gain, we have exceeded our own debt limit.
What a freaking joke! Any of our grandchildren who can actually do math will never believe that we, their parents and grandparents, were this greedy, this lazy, and that this insanity actually happened. Hmmm! Maybe that is why we are so busy dumbing-down our public schools … so they won’t be able to do the math and tell how badly we screwed them over!
As my brother put it, we are living like some kind of a bloated, immoral monster … thoughtlessly gorging itself at the free “super buffet” while the ship we all share is sinking beneath our very feet! But hey … no problem! Not to worry! The “free buffet” is being run up on a charge card which will be presented to our children and grandchildren for payment. Aren’t we so very clever!?
NO! We are not clever! As a nation … we have become sick!! Unlike Michelle Obama … for the first time … I am very ashamed of our country!
You must be really proud! Your husband has added $6 trillion in new debt since taking office. Gas prices are now over $4 per gallon on average. Unemployment has been holding steady over 8% for 4 years (higher if you use the actual numbers), with over 23 million Americans unemployed. There are 47 million are on food stamps. Our U.S. Ambassador was just raped and killed by muslims that your husband has been trying to embrace for 4 years and the middle east is in flaming chaos.
I read some of the letter written to you by Beck Smith, where she says:
I am also ashamed that the first family sees the Presidency as a lottery they won (how many vacations do you need in a year, really?) I have not had a job in two years, and our family would love to have a vacation in Europe, just one, someday. Yet your family has taken over seventeen vacations, at my last count, on the taxes people like me have paid. So, in effect, the middle class of America has been paying for you and your entourage of secretaries and secret service personnel to run around the world, shopping and sightseeing, when we cannot afford to go visit relatives who live in another state. Your husband’s policies have not created any jobs worth talking about, but they have kept businesses from creating jobs. Even a low-paying job would allow us the luxury of going to visit family.
She make a pretty good point … doesn’t she? Well, I know you won’t see it that way!
Are you proud of how the left-wing media selectively edits video to make Romney look bad, then screams about it for a few days, or at least until they are caught and forced to admit that what they were screaming about was in fact – not at all what Romney said. Has this happened 5, 6, 7, or 8 times now? Do we have the most corrupt media in the history of our Nation or what?
It is difficult for some to understand how your husband, a president with the most failure-ridden foreign and domestic policy in modern history, still has 47 percent of the American vote (according to the latest polls). But the answer is actually quite simple. Your husband does have the best propaganda machine since Adolph Hitler. Since 2007, your husband has been building a “cult of personality,” very much like the infamous fascist leaders of recent history. That doesn’t mean he’s a fascist; it doesn’t mean that he’s Hitler, or Mussolini, or Stalin, or Castro. However, his semiotics and iconography are far more in line with those of a fascist dictatorship than a vibrant republic.
Cases in point:
Ronald Reagan never hijacked the American flag for his own iconography. Neither did George W. Bush. or Bill Clinton. Only your husband has utilized the visual methodologies of Hitler’s propaganda machine to forward his political campaign. The same day that your husband’s campaign decided to unleash their newest Obama flag, Jessica Alba, one of your husband’s elitist Hollywood acolytes, issued a letter to his campaign followers urging them to pledge allegiance to Barack Obama.
Sorry folks! This is not America! This is not Liberty and Freedom for All! This is simply put … creepy.
Your husband’s vision for this great nation is about as un-American as you can get. But, despite his hatred of all things American, I am sure you and he both want him to get re-elected! You both certainly do enjoy the lifestyle … the endless world vacations, the countless rounds golf, the parties with Beyoncé and Jay-Z, skipping security briefings to hobnob with the who’s who in liberal elitist land! All paid for by struggling American taxpayers! Now .. that is a pretty sweet deal!
Your husband lamented on nationwide TV that he cannot rule by authoritative fiat and simply bypass Congress and the American people. He actually stated that despite laws enacted by Congress and the American people, he will do whatever he wants! Your husband has presided over an almost complete overthrow of the Constitution. It is a clear manifestation of high treason against the United States of America, but of course your liberal lap-dog media will not point this out and instead makes excuses for what amounts to a socialist coup d’etat. And the cool aid drinkers are so caught up in the “free Obama money” they think they are going to get … they just don’t care.
Mitt Romney was actually right! Approximately 47% of American voters are so drunk on the socialist cool aid, they will not vote for Romney no matter what he does or says! They want their entitlements whether the country can afford them or not! So what if America goes bankrupt and is financially destroyed! So what if our children and grandchildren are left with a crushing debt … just so they get their “free Obama money.” I mean … who are we to expect folks to have to actually work for what they get when they can just simply vote to steal it from somebody else! So … your husband, despite his horrible track record, treasonous activities, endless lies, and anti-American ideology … might actually get re-elected!
And you, Michelle, will have helped bring down the worlds greatest nation … that shining beacon on the hill that brought hardworking LEGAL immigrants to this country following their dreams … a glorious experiment in individual independence and human freedom … a dream you, Michelle, personally helped destroy.
Then … we can all be happy, mindless, little worker bees … pledging allegiance to One Nation Under Socialism! We can live our boring but politically correct and equally mediocre lives; contented with whatever you, your husband, and his followers deem we should have! Chicken McNuggets for all!
So, let’s see … to date 16 so-called green companies like Solyndra, have gone belly up after receiving free “Obama Money;” costing taxpayers billions of dollars.
Now that’s hope and change we can all get behind … don’t you think?
No wonder Obama cronies are fighting the proposed Voter ID laws tooth and nail … they really do need North Carolina’s 30,000+ registered dead voters to vote for him (I understand some of these dead voters actually have voted). I mean, they even had to dig up a dead guy to bash Romney at their convention!
Do I seem to hate Barack Obama? I don’t think hate is really the right word. I do, however, think I despise him and everything he stands for! Am I racist? I would be accused of being racist by many. Obama is half-black after all!
But, no … I am not racist!
It never ceases to amaze me that a man, without any professional accomplishments whatsoever, could deceive so many voters into thinking he could manage the world’s largest economy, lead the world’s most powerful military, and otherwise successfully take on the world’s most important job.
Let’s take off the cool-aid tinted glasses for just a minute, shall we … and take an honest look at Obama’s pre-presidential career. What did he actually achieve? Obama partied his way through Ivy League schools (snorting coke and smoking marijuana) with unremarkable grades and test scores. He landed a cushy non-job as a “community organizer.” He had a brief career as a state legislator … remarkable only because of how often he voted “present.” And, finally an amateurish single term in the United States Senate, the vast majority of which was devoted to his presidential election campaign. Obama left no notable academic legacy behind (or he would have bragged about it) and he sponsored no significant legislation as a legislator (or he would have bragged about it). In short, Barack Hussein Obama accomplished nothing to even remotely qualify him for the job of President of the United States.
That simple fact is that, while I respect the Office of the President, I do not respect Barack Obama at all. I consider him an enemy of the state. And before liberals all start screaming racism … it has nothing, I repeat, nothing, to do with his skin color. I do not like what Obama represents … his ideology, his policies, or his legislation. I also do like not him because he is ideologically committed to fundamentally transforming this country that I love into what (once you strip away all the left-wing, liberal-progressive, politically correct terminology) can only be described as a Socialist/Communist state. And, I have nothing but complete contempt for how the Obamas play their race card!
In fact, I think the Obamas are, perhaps, the worst kind of racists; they are elitist socialists with nothing but contempt for American values and traditions. Michelle Obama’s contempt for white America is very obvious. The Obamas have no respect for the American people, the laws of this nation, the U.S. Constitution, or the authority of the Congress (granted … at this time Congress deserves little in the way of respect).
Michelle Obama treats being the First Lady as some kind of “carte blanche” to jet around the world, spending millions and millions of tax payer dollars showing off her rich life of entitlement while her husband goes about creating and fomenting class warfare. Michelle takes $4 million vacations while Americans are unemployed, hungry, or homeless. She eats lobster dinners while telling parents that their children have to eat the school provided chicken nuggets for lunch … rather than the turkey sandwich the student’s mother lovingly made at home for him.
The liberal drive-by media sold itself out completely to the Obamas. Journalistic integrity is right out the door. Chris Matthews gets a “chill up his leg” when Barack Obama descends from “on high” to save us all from ourselves. Therefore, no vetting of Barack Obama was done whatsoever! The left-wing drive-by media refused to even consider investigating Barack Obama like they investigated both President George Bush and President Bill Clinton, but they certainly rush to blame the Tea Party and other conservatives for every horrific criminal act that occurs. Do they actually believe that conservatives want to drink dirty water, radiate the planet, kill off autistic or special needs children, revoke Medicare, and push little old grandma off the cliff in her wheelchair? They sure repeat that message often enough! Hitler pulled that very same tactic off only too well. Repeat a falsehood loudly, vehemently, and long enough …and the unthinking masses start to believe!
And Obama lies time and time again! The only reason a person hides things is because he has something to hide. Is there an example of another President who has spent millions of dollars to keep his records and his past secret? He broke every one of his campaign promises! He has lied about how he met his wife, his mother’s death and insurance issues, he and Michelle lied about nearly $500, 000 in bank stock they inherited from his family, he has lied about his father’s military service, and he has lied about the civil rights movement (actually, all black liberals conveniently forget about that particular period of Democratic Party history).
Do you think it is even remotely possible that a white president and his wife could ignore our laws, endless and openly lie to America, flaunt their position, and arrogantly lord it over American citizens like the Obamas have done? How do the Obamas get away with their imperialistic manipulations? It’s easy … because to question anything at all about the Obamas or their actions would be immediately condemned as being motivated by “racism” by their mass media lap-dogs!
And so, as a result of this lack of vetting and this liberal messianic Obama worship… we have, as a nation, never discussed the matter of Obama’s many troubling associations:
The white-hating, America-loathing preacher, Jeremiah Wright (who for decades served as Obama’s “spiritual mentor”);
A real-life, actual anti-American terrorist, William Ayers (who served as Obama’s colleague and political sponsor),
Another real-life anti-American terrorist, Bernadine Dohrn (who also helped launch Obama’s career).
Then there is Obama’s good friend and teacher, Frank Marshall Davis (a full-fledged member of the communist party in both Hawaii and Chicago),
We have Obama’s shady real estate deals with criminal Tony Rezko.
9/11 Truther, former Green Jobs Czar, and avowed communist, Van Jones
Last-but-not-least, Obama’s constant support for members of various socialist groups such as Saul Mendelson of the Socialist Party USA,
As well as, Bernie Sanders of the Democratic Socialists of America’s Democratic Left.
This is only a short list! We also have all his other Czars and their radical leanings. Just good-old American-type folks such as Anita Dunn (Communist White House Communications Director), Leon Panetta (Communist Secretary of Defense), Donald Berwick (Communist Health Rationer-in-Chief), Valerie Jarrett (Obama’s Communist Right Hand Woman), Elizabeth Warren (Communist Consumer Financial Protection Bureau & “Eat the Rich” proponent), Carol Browner (Communist Energy and Environment Czar), Ron Bloom (Communist Obama appointed Czar), John Holdren (Communist Science and Technology Czar), Cass Sunstein (Communist Regulatory Czar), Samantha Power (Wife of Cass Sunstein, Israel hater, promoter of “open Society”), and Kevin Jennings (Drug using gay pedophile and NAMBLA supporter) to name just a few!
Despite all these radical associations, his total lack of experience, and the Obamas disdain for all things American, Barack Obama was elected President of the United States. Why? Would you believe maybe … racism?
Norman Podhoretz addressed this issue recently in the Wall Street Journal:
To be sure, no white candidate who had close associations with an outspoken hater of America like Jeremiah Wright and an unrepentant terrorist like Bill Ayers, would have lasted a single day. But because Mr. Obama was black, and therefore entitled in the eyes of all liberaldom to have hung out with protesters against various American injustices, even if they were a bit extreme, he was given a pass.
Let that sink in. Ponder the possibility for a few minutes. Is it really that far-fetched? Could Obama have been given a pass and held to a lower standard … because of the color of his skin.
Podhoretz goes on to write:
And in any case, what did such ancient history matter when he was also so articulate and elegant and (as he himself had said) “non-threatening,” all of which gave him a fighting chance to become the first black president and thereby to lay the curse of racism to rest?
Podhoretz argues that the mystery behind the Obama phenomenon is: affirmative action.
What we are discussing here is the motivating sentiment behind all affirmative action laws and regulations, which are primarily designed to make white people, and especially white liberals, feel good about themselves.
Unfortunately, the truth is that minorities often suffer simply so that white liberals can feel good about themselves. For example, as Podhoretz says, liberals routinely admit minorities to schools for which they are not properly prepared, yet somehow they seem to take no responsibility for the poor performance and high drop-out rate that follows. Liberals don’t mind that these minority students too often fail, because these liberals aren’t around to see the emotional devastation and loss of self-esteem that often results from their “entitlement-minded policy … a policy based on a racist idea known to most as affirmative action.
Yes, let me repeat that … racist. As I have pointed out in previous posts, holding someone to a separate standard merely because of their skin color … is the very definition of racism!
According to Podhoretz, that is exactly what got Obama elected to the Office of the President of the United States.
True, Obama himself was never troubled by his lack of achievements, but why would he be? As many have noted, Obama was told he was good enough for Columbia despite undistinguished grades at Occidental; he was told he was good enough for the US Senate despite a mediocre record in Illinois; he was told he was good enough to be president despite no record at all in the Senate. All his life, every step of the way, Obama was told he was good enough for the next step, in spite of ample evidence to the contrary.
What could this kind of preferential treatment combined with lower standards create if not the sort of entitlement minded, arrogant, empty narcissism we see and hear every time Obama speaks?
I got Osama Bin Laden!
I created this … I did that!
I am 4th best President!
You can achieve nothing without government [meaning “my”] help!
During the 2008 campaign, many so-called “experts” agreed that Obama lacked executive qualifications … but nonetheless raved on and on about Obama’s wonderful oratory skills, great intellect, and unflappable character. Those same people (including some conservatives) should be pretty damned embarrassed now.
Obama bloviates endlessly (and that’s when he has his teleprompter in front of him)! Yet … not one original thought or new idea has come from his mouth … it’s all warmed-over Marxism of the kind that has failed throughout its history … in China, Cuba, the former USSR, and many Eastern European countries. And … when the teleprompter is absent … Obama stumbles on; often revealing his true ideologically-driven, extreem radical thoughts and motivations … much to the dismay of his handlers!
And what about Obama’s immaculate and unflappable character? All I ever hear is Obama constantly blaming anything and everything else for his troubles. It’s all Bush’s fault; Republicans did it; it was bad luck; ATMs; Kiosks caused this; it was the Arab Spring; I have a do-nothing Congress; it’s the Tea Party’s fault; the moon is in the seventh house and Jupiter is aligned with Mars; and … I inherited this mess! He gets petulant when disagreed with … stomping off the stage like a little child. He flip-flops more than John Kerry every thought of flip-flopping! He lashes out at Americans who do not accept his socialism-based utopian plan for America … accusing them of “bitterly clinging to their Bible and their guns!” Obama buys votes by promising more entitlements (more free “Obama Money” he does not even have) and then attacks the very driving force behind the once great American economy to fund his voter bribes.
Actually, it is really kind of embarrassing to see an American President so willing to advertise his own powerlessness and so comfortable with his own incompetence. But, looking at things honestly and truthfully, what else could we have expected? Obama was never been responsible for anything in his entire life, so why in the world would anyone expect him to behave responsibly now?
The reality is that our president is an ideology-driven, small-minded man; with neither the temperament nor the intellect to handle his job. When Americans finaly understand that … the current erosion of liberty and prosperity begin to make any sense. This is the only result possible with this kind of man sitting at the President’s desk.
Obama was on the road again … giving his cool-aid-laced campaign speeches and, as usual, they are dripping with deceit, half-truths, and out-right lies.
Obama goes on about job creation and how his administration will focus on that area of the economy now. He mentions we need more teachers, police, and firefighters … his patented buzzwords. Why is it always teachers, police, and firefighters?
Obama always mentions teachers, police, and firefighters … because those are buzz words that invoke an emotional response. What parent does not want good teachers for their children? How can you not feel a twinge after hearing a plug for police and firefighters … especially after 9/11. Everyone wants to feel safe … right! But let’s be honest here … shall we? Don’t we also need engineers, construction workers, oil rig hands, lineman, computer technicians, data analysts, electricians, and machinists, etc.
And, just how many teacher, police, and firefighters will Obama actually hire. These are actually municipal jobs. The vast majority of teachers, police, and firefighters are hired by municipalities …. and funded by tax dollars. This means higher taxes. I am all for good teachers …. and more police and firefighters (IF THEY ARE ACTUALLY NEEDED)! But should this be the central focus of a federal jobs creation program? I really don’t think so! For Obama … who will actually hire NO teachers, police, or firefighters … these are simply code words for more federal bureaucracy!
Can I ask you a question and get an honest answer? What do we really have to show for that $1 trillion stimulus package Obama bragged about … at least until it failed? You know … all those shovel ready jobs he talked about. Where are they? We spent almost $1 trillion ($870 billion) in tax payer dollars … what exactly did we get? Show me … point to some real jobs! Can you? Are you better off? A few of Obama’s bundler buddies got very rich by embezzling tax payer dollars, in the form of government guaranteed loans … via their “green energy company” scams!
Actually, here is where some additional Obama “stimulus” money went:
The Agriculture Department’s Rural Housing Service likely loaned hundreds of millions of dollars to ineligible borrowers as part of President Obama’s stimulus package, a report by federal watchdogs has revealed.
The stimulus earmarked more than $1 billion for RHS home loans in rural communities. According to the Ag Department’s Inspector General, up to $292.3 million of those loans may have financed ineligible projects, or gone to borrowers that did not meet the loan program’s requirements due to their potential inability to repay the loans.
The IG examined a sample of 100 RHS stimulus loans, and found that 17 had been extended to borrowers who “(1) had no history of stable and dependable income, (2) had a credit history that did not indicate the ability and willingness to repay a loan, or (3) did not meet repayment ability guidelines.”
Six loans in the report’s sample financed properties that did not meet the program’s eligibility requirements. Some “lacked sufficient documentation that the homes were decent, safe, and sanitary,” according to the report.
The IG extrapolated with 95% certainty that between 1,111 and 2,433 loans totaling between $124.3 million and $292.3 were made to ineligible borrowers or projects. The report faulted RHS personnel for the oversight.
Just more vote buying by the Obama administration. Saying one thing … doing another …. while the liberal media covers for them; or ignores the facts and just spreads the manure being shovelled out by the White House Press Secretary. It is just more Obamanipulation!
But hey …. the Obama’s are really very good at that. Michelle Obama had a great job in Chicago making $375,000 per year doing hospital outreach work. Actually, it was a non-job … Michelle Obama rarely ever had to show up! And can you guess what she did for them … she supported and implemented policies that made sure indigents and people who could not afford their medical care … got pushed off to other hospitals. Now that’s compassion for you!
Do you remember how President Obama promised the American people, “If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan, period. No one will take it away, no matter what.” Surprise, Surprise: the Obama Administration now admits that this isn’t actually the case! Now it seems that, for all practical purposes, a majority of group health plans will lose their grandfather status by 2013. Over time, as more Americans lose their existing health insurance, any new plan would naturally be subject to Obamacare’s overreaching regulations, mandates, and violations of religious liberty. This is just one more example of Obama’s endless stream of broken promises.
You know … Obama was so quick to condemn Zimmerman in the Trayvon Martin case … before anyone even knew the facts. Now, that is real leadership for you! You would think, then, that he would be equally quick to condemn horrible acts of violence perpetrated against the other people he is also the so-called “president” of. Yet he seems strangely silent over:
an 18-year-old Chicago boy named Alton L. Hayes III, who, along with a younger accomplice, viciously attacked a 19-year-old boy with a tree branch simply because he was white. Hayes, who is black, said he was upset over the Trayvon Martin case.
an angry, race-fueled mob who beat a man by the name of Matthew Owens. Owens is now in critical condition while the suspects still remain at large. Reports say that twenty people, all black Americans, attacked Matthew Owen on his front porch with “brass buckles, paint cans and anything they could get their hands on.” One of the attackers was overheard saying: ”Now that’s justice for Trayvon.”
And lastly, there is the horrible story of a white, 13-year-old boy who was walking home from school when he was accosted by two black teens. They chased the boy to his house but barred him from entering. According to reports, one of the suspect’s grabbed a red gasoline can saying: “This is what you deserve. You get what you deserve white boy,” dousing the boy with gasoline and setting him ablaze.
Were is the outcry from President Obama, Al Sharpton, and Jesse Jackson?! Why so silent? I guess maybe they are all busy at strategy meetings with the New Black Panthers. Maybe it is just more Obamanipulation … and Obama really is playing his version of “the race card.”
Well, the word is out! Obama wants $1.5 trillion in new tax increases. Of course, this will only affect the rich and corporations … you know. Except that … corporations do not pay taxes. They pass the additional cost of doing business on to the consumer. Ummm! For you highly intelligent progressive-liberal types … that’s you and me! It is good, however, to hear the rich are finally going to pay their fair share … since they already pay something like 90% federal income tax revenues already.
Of course that may cut down on the ability of lots of small businesses to hire new employees … but that’s ok too … since Obama is going to just have us all work for the government. That might need still more taxes … to pay everyone … but you know …. fair is fair! Wouldn’t Jimmy Carter be proud!!
What a bunch of BS!
If Obama’s administration would just quit wasting our money … like:
Giving $650 million for a digital television converter box coupon program
Michelle Obama spending $10 million in tax payer funds on vacations in just one year
Paying $3.5 million for repainting and adding a security camera to one bridge in Oregon
Giving $8 million to a Missouri bridge project that was already fully funded by the state
Wasting $1 million on road signs touting stimulus funds at work in Ohio
And last but not least … sponsoring jello wrestling matches in the frozen wastelands of Antarctica …
We would probably not need to raise taxes!
Canada is creating more jobs for Americans than Obama is! How are they doing that … drilling for oil! Hmmmm! And … we still are not! Why?
It seems that Obama did his part to support the Canadian job market. The two buses he bought for his recent tax-payer financed luxury bus tour were made in Canada. The Prevost buses coast $1.1 million each and are the company’s top of the line luxury models … like those used by major traveling rock bands. It is good to see Obama getting the finest in Canadian exports … while 14 million Americans are unemployed.
Jimmy Hoffa, Jr? What a joke!! Hoffa said that the Tea Party was engaging on a “war on workers” and that the teamsters would “remember in November” which lawmakers were for or against the president’s agenda.
Well, there is no doubt that the Tea Party is against the president’s agenda! But how is that a “war on workers” or; could Hoffa simply be a left-wing political hack (a useful idiot) who is “not letting the facts get in the way of a good story?”
Let’s look at some facts … shall we?
It is time to get over blaming everyone and everything under the sun except “the anointed one.” Obama’s policies, his stimulus, his shovel-ready jobs have all been dismal failures; and have not created jobs or economic recovery. While he runs up miles on his golf cart and vacations at Martha’s Vineyard, my 401(k) just keeps on shrinking. Pretty soon it will be invisible! Yet, Barack and Michele Obama take separate (yes … I said separate) jets to and from Martha’s Vineyard because they cannot even bother to coordinate travel times in this “tough” economy. But … hey … that’s what tax payer’s dollars are for, right?
Most of the not nearly enough jobs created recently have been created thanks to Tea Party states like Texas. Where was Hoffa when Obama banned oil drilling in the Gulf? Who hauls oil rig construction parts, oil and petroleum products? American truckers do … that’s who! Where was Hoffa when Obama start regulating coal mines out of existence? Who hauls coal around in this country? Truckers do … that’s who! What about this proposed pipe line from Canada to the U.S. that Obama’s administration won’t approve? Who would haul all the materials, parts, etc. for a project that would create thousands of jobs and stabilize American energy resources? American truckers … that’s who! More than three years have passed since the $700 billion dollar stimulus. Unemployment and foreclosures are still at record highs! 67% of Americans disapprove of the job Obama is doing! ZERO jobs created in August. 74% of Americans disapprove of Obama’s handling of the economy!
The fact is that Obama’s administration is explosively disintegrating and the last weapon the progressive-liberals have in their arsenal for their panicky efforts to stay in power is to blame the Tea Party (since “blame the Jews” has already been taken) for everything. Therefore, Hoffa says unions have to “take out” the Tea Party “sons of bitches” and Vice-president Biden (who, by the way, along with Obama … took an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution) refers to Tea Party members again as terrorists and now also as “barbarians.” I guess Biden does support violence against those with whom he disagrees.
Obama and his administration just do not understand the economics of this nation. His “job creation” speech on Thursday will undoubtedly contain new government programs to “stimulate shovel-ready” jobs. Of course, he will not use those words because they have been tainted by his past failures (or successes … depending on what you believe his motivation is). His “enlightened” administration will have found new “code words” for the same old big-government crap and they will have poll-tested them to measure them against the typical American voter’s gullibility level! But, whatever he proposes … it will increase the deficit and cause higher taxes, because they simply do not get it! The American economy is driven by private sector and small business jobs … not by having everyone work for the government! Despite the statements of his “oh so smart” administration and cabinet officials; food stamps and unemployment are simply not job creation programs!
Jon Faraci, CEO of International Paper told CNBC that “to create jobs what we need is demand. This economy is 70 percent consumer driven, so we need consumers spending some of their discretionary income if we’re going to have demand that’s going to lead to more jobs.”
John Schiller, chairman and CEO of Energy XXI, said that “if the government would get out-of-the-way, from a regulation standpoint, and let us [XXI] do what we do good you’ll see us continue to hire and grow this economy.”
Obama’s lack of leadership and ideological driven agenda are killing the nation! This is not a racist comment or racism … it is simply pointing out bad policy. Obama’s policies would be bad if he was white, red, yellow, green, or purple with pink polka dots! The truth is that the people who want to scream RACISM anytime anyone disagrees with Obama in any way … are actually the racists. They simply cannot get past blaming everything on racism. They cannot see that Obama is simply the worst president ever elected. And the Tea Party is certainly not to blame for that!!
The Tea Party is fighting to balance our budget, restore some common sense to government spending habits, and create economic growth through producing private sector jobs. What happens to the government-funded infrastructure improvement jobs when the job is done or the program fund runs dry? The job goes away!! Government jobs simply do not create sustainable growth and they REQUIRE higher taxes to pay for all the new government employees and/or programs! Private sector jobs based on demand continue to produce and grow … and produce still more jobs! That is how freedom and capitalism work hand-in-hand! It does require some personal initiative, imagination, and acceptance of personal responsibility … some things progressive-liberals seem to be pretty short of.
Let me tell you something! Jimmy Hoffa, Jr. takes hard-earned money from hard-working union members and then uses it to schmooze with Obama and his elitist cronies, supporting the very same left-wing politicians and their socialist economic policies that are killing this country and its economy! He screams their socialist slogans like a paid lapdog … because he wants the power he hope it will give him. When the economy is thriving, truckers are working, and things are going well … Jimmy Hoffa, Jr. loses power!
So … I agree … we do need to take the “son-of-a-bitches” out! We just need to be sure who the son-of-a-bitches really are!! When are union members going to wake up and realize the Tea Party is not your enemy! Gangsters and communists in your organizations are the real enemy. They are not out for you … the little guy! They are simply out for amassing power and getting rich. How much does Jimmy Hoffa make? What does he do that really protects your interests? Have you been to Detroit lately? Detroit was once the automobile manufacturing center of the world. It is now a wasteland! Do you think the Tea Party caused that to? Who do you think “collectively bargained” those jobs right out of existence?
