July 16, 2010: How are we doing?
It’s been a long, hot week, and I’m a bit testy. With that in mind, let’s discuss where we are.
Saying that our president is doing a bad job is like saying the citizens of Pompei experienced traffic congestion the morning Mount Vesuvius blew. It’s true, but it’s also an incredible understatement. 100% of Barry’s presidency has resided somewhere between doing nothing or making things worse. Honestly, I’ll have a major award for anyone that can point to one good thing this man has done since he’s gotten into office. We’re still sitting just shy of 10% national unemployment…and that doesn’t count the people who are no longer even looking for work. Our debt and deficits literally make history ever single day, and all B.O. thinks we should do is spend more. In fact, his own freakin’ debt commission stated the debt will destroy this country. Not possible? Look at Greece, or Spain, or Portugal.
His Department of Justice is choosing to sue Arizona for enforcing federal law, while refusing to prosecute sanctuary cities for explicitly violating federal law. How about a lawsuit against Chicago for its new gun restrictions? Don’t understand my point Mr. President? How about we put the restrictions in terms you can understand. It would be similar to Illinois telling a young pregnant girl she can have an abortion, but only after she pays $1,000.00 cash to watch a video of an abortion procedure, with her parents and grandparents, after which she takes a test consisting entirely of identifying still images from the video, and then, after the abortion, being forced to keep the dead baby in a jar under her pillow for nine months after the abortion. Oh, and she’d need to go to Wisconsin to get the abortion. Now, I bet a law like that would receive a lawsuit. Guns and abortion are both “fundamental rights” that are protected by the constitution, right?
How ’bout that financial overhaul bill that everyone on the left is so damn excited about? While it doesn’t do anything about fixing what actually went wrong with the economy in the first place, Fannie Mae is out there offering first time home-buyers loans with a little as $1,000.00 down. And now I get to go sit in traffic on the highway because the idiots hired by the state of Illinois, with federal funds I’m sure, decided to strike after tearing up the damn road. They apparently didn’t get the memo that the economy sucks while health care costs and premiums are still going up, as a result of despite Obamacare. And on January 1, 2011, those of us who actually pay income tax can look forward to it skyrocketing.
And what is our esteemed president’s response:
The president said in the interview he believes voters “are going to say the policies that got us into this mess, we can’t go back to.” He also said Washington “has spent an inordinate amount of time on politics — who’s up and who’s down — and not enough on what we’re doing for the American people.”
It’s official. We didn’t elect a President. We didn’t even elect a petty dictator. We elected a buffoon. And by “we” I mean somebody else because I didn’t vote for him. The liberal policies that got us into this mess are still out there, alive and well. “What we’re doing for the American people?” Are you serious? How about what you’re doing to the American people? Here’s what Barry’s done to the American people since he’s become president: increased unemployment. increased deficits and debt. increased health care costs and premiums. increased economic uncertainty. increased claims of racism. increased divisiveness. increased entitlements. increased taxes. Here’s what he’s done for the people of America: been a really active (and bad) golfer.
