The Obama Presidency Continues To Melt Down
The Bulletin ^ | Friday, February 13, 2009 | Herb Denenberg

Posted on 02/13/2009 5:36:35 AM PST by curth

In a previous column, I said the Obama stimulus package is the greatest consumer rip-off and fraud in history. (See “Obama Attempts to Pull Off Greatest Rip-offs, Con Jobs in History” (Feb. 2) and also on The Bulletin’s Web site at www.thebulletin.us.)

The President has saved Bernard Madoff, king of Ponzi schemes, from having that honor. He got away with a paltry $50 billion, nothing like the trillions we’re about to see go for pork.

I should also add that the stimulus package is just the beginning of the meltdown of the Obama presidency. In fact, Martin Wolf, a columnist for the respected Financial Times (of London)(Feb. 11), is already asking, “Has Barack Obama’s presidency already failed? In normal times, this would be a ludicrous question. But these are times of great danger.” Mr. Wolf concludes that the new rescue package for the banks will fail and we know that could prove to be a disastrous mistake.

I said the attempt to get the Obama stimulus package passed without proper hearings and consideration was a sure-red flag suggesting a rip-off in the form of the stimulus package by a con man, now in the White House. The world would not come to an end if we took a few weeks to get it right. They should at least allow enough time for reading the bill before passing it. Mara Eliason, of NPR, one of the most liberal news outlets, admitted most Congressmen haven’t even read the bill. Is that too much to expect from members of Congress? How can we have any respect for Congress or the stimulus bill when it is passed without knowing what is in it?

the fact that the emergency package includes $30 million for Nancy Pelosis’ mouse study- should be a clue we are NOT facing a catastrophe

Dear President Nancy Hussein Reid,

Obama’s has fallen for the delusion created by the liberal media. His inability to make progress is due the cake walk provided by his liberal cronies. Now, the real job is here and he is still campaigning!

He needs to reflect on his Junior Level Status as a senator, limited participation with the passage of bills, as well as, his focus on groups that have a poor opinion of America. These are not issues that will further his cause and this gross display of ineptitude will infect the entire country. It’s pink slip time!

Sincerely,

A Great American

“I said the Obama stimulus package is the greatest consumer rip-off and fraud in history.”

I agree with this 100%. It is also a wrongheaded attempt to push America towards more massive government bloat, even after GWB (who I admire in some respects) presided over the biggest government expansion in history and a whole lot of ‘earmarks’.

It is truly sickening. God Bless America.

This thing is downright ridiculous.

This writer hits the nail on the head.

Closed door meetings, forcing a vote before anyone can read the bill . This thing is being shoved down our throats like forcing a plunger down a toilet.

I know the Democrats play hard ball politics, but it amazes me that Democrats elected by their constituents to represent ,them are going along with this when they dont even know what it says.Much less a Republican who couldnt even get into the hearing room.
