A video is worth 1000 words or more. I could write as much more than a 1000 words about how badly Obama is handling the economy. But this video does a far better job.
PS: The never ending nerve of Barack Obama. He goes bus touring while people struggle just to put food on their tables and roofs over their heads.
Ah the irony. Do you remember when GW Bush brought us into Iraq? How the liberals howled. In fact, they howled until the end of Bush’s 2nd term. George Bush presented his bogus WMD case to congress before he went full steam ahead. So at least he honored the constitution and went to Congress first.
Not Barack Obama! He just plowed in without any prior approval from Congress (or anyone else). And how silent the liberals are now about this. Where is the uproar from them? I went to the Daily Kooks (Daily Kos) and searched recent articles with the word “Libya”. Not surprisingly, there were very few that were critical of Obama – most were only liberal news hashing articles.
Funny how things change when it’s a liberal in the White House entering YET ANOTHER Middle East conflict. Yet again, we see the liberal hypocrisy in action through their silence and complacence on the subject of our involvement in Libya. Unfortunately for Barry O, Daffy Gaddafi may be right. He promised a long battle if the US and Western forces were to get involved. The news this week indicates that the rebel forces are losing ground against Daffy. This might mean that Libya will go on and on…. just like Iraq. The gift that keeps taking.
FoxNews courtesy of Hannity, ran this piece about Barack Obama’s lame speech on Libya. Their story says that Libya could “Break Obama”. Well as far as I’m concerned, he’s already broken. Since Barack Obama took office, we can boast:
— Far fewer decent paying jobs
— Continuing high unemployment
— Lower wages
— Higher food prices
— Higher gas prices
And to add to Obama’s list of failure, I am reading that rents are going up. This is an obvious (but entirely foreseeable) result of the housing bust. Suddenly renting is no longer the shameful housing option it once was. Suddenly, it’s fiscally sound so everyone says “rent rent rent”. In fact, with the restrictions on new mortgages and the above points, few people can afford to do anything but rent. And rent is simply complying with the law of supply and demand.
In a healthy economy, this would not be a such a bad, but let make this clear: This is not a healthy economy. Even though the mainstream media keeps pretending that we are in some kind of economic recovery, that is far from the truth. The combination of factors listed in this blog post cannot sit in the same room as “economic recovery”. Any talk of economic recovery is a lie originating from the Obama Administration and carried across the lying liberal news sources.
Sorry folks, Obama is already broken.
As mentioned earlier, I am re-reading “Atlas Shrugged” in preparation for the upcoming film. I always like to see how they hack a prolific book into a movie. In this case, I understand it’s to be a trilogy which at least gives it a chance.
I have not read the book in quite some time and re-reading it now reminds how relevant it really still is. Do you remember the part about the “Anti Dog Eat Dog Rule” formally known as the Equalization of Opportunity Bill? It’s a bill put together by the railroad consortium in the setting, to stifle large railroads from running smaller railroads out of business. I see many parallels to Barack Obama’s “Healthzilla” with it.
For one, Healthzilla is a direct intervention of big government into a free enterprise area they don’t belong. Secondly, it will no doubt affect competition in the health care industry as smaller carriers will have to carry a bigger burden. And it will probably affect competition in ways we can’t even foresee or haven’t thought of yet. Thirdly, Healthzilla is still enormously unpopular among conservative thinking people.
All these qualities make it a near direct parallel to that bill in Atlas Shrugged. How did the bill turn out there? You’ll have to read the book to find out. Unfortunately, Healthzilla is reality, not fiction.
PS: I added the word ‘Healthzilla’ to my Word spell checker; I have a feeling I’ll be blogging about it a lot.
Today I googled “Where are the Jobs” in Google News. Not surprisingly, very few answers popped in that query. What’s wrong Google? Can’t answer that question? My guess, is there simply isn’t much press involving that question. Here is another example of the left wing mainstream media protection Barack Obama from negative publicity by simply avoiding the subject.
On one hand, the American people do not need to be reminded of that question. The question is all around us every day as we watch the continuing decline of our collective affluence. However, the American people do need to be reminded that our illustrious president is doing nothing to assist or influence the situation in a productive way.
The only relevant result that popped up was yet another one of his speeches made at Intel where he (once again) promoted education as a source for innovation. How many different ways is he going to roll that lame piece of wisdom into his speeches. Not that I don’t agree with that, but Americans need jobs NOW. We need them now as well 10 years from now and 20 and so on. So that education angle doesn’t solve today’s problems.
Liberals are finally acknowledging the fact that their ‘lord and savior’, Barack Obama is not quite up to delivering that hope and change he promised them. Instead of blaming Barack Obama for the state of things today and instead of blaming themselves for being foolish enough to fall for that “hope and change” BS, they continue to shift the blame to another one of their big bad bogeymen: the Corporation. This liberal opinion piece appeared recently in the New York Times and it typifies the liberal blame game.
While millions of ordinary Americans are struggling with unemployment and declining standards of living, the levers of real power have been all but completely commandeered by the financial and corporate elite. It doesn’t really matter what ordinary people want. The wealthy call the tune, and the politicians dance. So what we get in this democracy of ours are astounding and increasingly obscene tax breaks and other windfall benefits for the wealthiest, while the bought-and-paid-for politicians hack away at essential public services and the social safety net, saying we can’t afford them.

Waaaaa.. Cry us a river! Do liberals ever stop to think that if perhaps they made better choices at election time, this would be less of a problem? The idea of personal responsibility completely escapes liberals like this one.
Instead of seeing corporations as the big bad bogeyman, see them for what they can give us: Jobs. Where do liberals think jobs come from? Do they think private sector jobs fall out of the sky? The cost of doing business in America is huge and liberals don’t realize this. I doubt if this liberal has ever looked at a business Balance Sheet or Income Statement. Tax breaks are essential for businesses who in turn can create jobs and do the hiring.
The reason the ‘corporate bogeyman’ isn’t hiring is that they don’t see leadership in this country right now. They see Barack Obama for what he really is: A sham, a fraud, the great pretender.
The liberal news is blooming today with flowery stories about Barack Obama’s performance at the Daily Prayer Breakfast. You know what ‘performance’ I’m talking about – the one where he pretends to be a Christian. Who am I to say who is a Christian and who isn’t? Right. It’s not my place, I admit that. But at the same time, I am not buying this any more than I bought this act the first time he did it.
One of the problems with Christianity, is that just about anyone can say he or she is “forgiven” and call themselves a “Christian”. Christianity is a case where actions speak louder than words. If you are a Christian, then most likely your best friends are also Christians. In fact, you probably met them at Church or some such gathering and saw their actions before you became friends.
Barack Obama is a man of many words, there is no arguing that. He is perhaps one of the better word spinners of today. But that doesn’t make him a good president. In fact, his own words, like many presidents before him are helping to undo him. He ran his campaign on emotions – “Yes we Can” and “Hope and Change”. So how is that “Hope and Change” working out for you by the way? Bottom line, Barack, put up or shut up. His Daily Prayer Breakfast speech was just that – a speech. And as I posted before, America Cannot Run on Speeches Alone!
