There is a point that needs to be made in reference to the entire budget debacle. We’ve heard all the hysteria about the debt ceiling, we’ve been treated for weeks to the spectacle of Congressmen and women hurling insults at each other, at their respective parties, at the other political party, at other entities (Tea Party, CBO, Treasury Department for example). We, the American people have had our intelligence insulted and dismissed and had our integrity questioned. One point however remains in the lock box apparently.
The one person who’s promised to stop any action moving forward to get our fiscal house back in order, including raising the debt ceiling, unless he get’s what he wants is, guess who???????????
That would be President Barak Hussein Obama. What does he want? What is the most important part of his agenda in all of this? Is it the creation of jobs. Is it encouraging business to stay in the U.S.? Is it making sure we as a country meet our responsibilities? No. His focus is making sure that what ever we have to do after we put the bandaid on this problem doesn’t come due until AFTER the election in 2012. If this is such a problem, if it’s so bad we have to do something immediately why would we wait for a year to get something real and substantive done?
If I were a cynic (and I am) I would worry that “he who would be King’s” only interest in this crisis is figuring out how to shift the blame to the other party and making sure he doesn’t have to actually do anything that would irritate his base. He wants to make sure his supporters don’t have any more reasons to mistrust him. The black middle class is hanging on by their fingernails. In C.A. illegal immigrants are leaving to chase the American dream in, of all place Mexico. Their jobless rate is 4.9 while here in the U.S ours is 9.4. It’s really bad when the rats start leaving the ship. It usually means the ship is listing and going under in short order. Obama is becoming desperate because his plan to “substantially change America” is taking more time then he suspected. The Tea Party and other right leaning activists and movements have taken up more of the debate and have slowed the march of socialistic communism to a crawl and the American people are finally starting to wake up. None of that sit’s well with our “fearful leader”.
Obama was a coward when he was elected and nothing has changed. He has no experience or integrity on which to draw. He is a political hack with delusions of relevancy. He is also the consummate politician and like all animals in that species, the first most salient ideal is “how can this profit me.” The president will continue to bang that drum until next November, when hopefully the people will have woken up and sent BHO and his cabal back to Chicago, where he can throw his fortune in with his good, good friend and cohort Rahm.
I hope Barry finds a decent mosque to attend. He could use some inspiration.
