I know; I know. Fingers lag brain by about 20 seconds.
Just heard a news report on the radio that California’s unemployment rate just hit 10.2% and the downward spiral hasn’t really started yet.
This is going to get very, very, bad.
The autopilot is engaged, he is heading toward the next waypoint to socialism.
I don't count Porkulus as a fair test of strength. Few congressmen could resist 700+ trillion of pork, dressed up as a cure for the economy.
I’m not seeing it.
With a true narcissistic personality, they may back off but they are getting a plan together to rip right through anyone opposing them. Narcissist never see themselves as at fault thus they are—in their twisted mind—justified to destroy opposition even if they have to use others to do it and remain ‘above the fray’. Obama is a classic narcissistic personality and is proving his ‘back off’ routine is merely prep for ruthlessness.
That’s because the President reads so well.
Like any socialist country, the people rapidly learn that their free lunch is barely enough to live on and not enough to thrive. If it goes on long enough, the people lose hope and the country crashes and cannot recover.
Reagan was fine wine. The zero is Thunderbird.
Now, like 'Bill McKay', the fictional (liberal) Democrat U.S. senate candidate from California (played by Robert Redford) in the 1972 film, 'The Candidate', Barack Obama won the job he went after - and doesn't really know what to do with it. Although I'm sure he'll make a mess of it, the unfortunate part is that we'll be a more socialist country and far worse off when Obama and his administration are finally booted out of Washington.
Electing Obama was tragic for America. Although congressional Republicans are apparently energized by Obama's ineptness and the hoped-for defeat of his socialist policies, this is about more than just a party trading places in the seat of power. This is America's future - and it's looking grim, no matter how brave congressional Republicans feel right now or how out of his depth Barack Obama may be.
We're in trouble, folks....and not just the economy. We have a Leninist in the Oval Office. Inexperienced, inept and probably overwhelmed a bit, but still, in a position to do great harm to our country. I hope Obama and his party can be politically thwarted and that Americans will wake up before it's far too late to reverse the damage. I really do.
I have used the analogy that this crash is like skydiving. At 10,000 feet, the ground does not seem to be approaching. At 1000 feet, it’s coming up pretty fast. The last 200 feet, assuming your chute does not open, can seem very rapid indeed.
I think we are in the last couple hundred feet. This is happening at breakneck speed.
B. O. Stinks?
Who didn’t know?
I’m thinking MD 20/20. Gold!
Yep. Passive-Aggressive behavior is a lot of fun to deal with. Try one of them with it in your family. By the time you figure out what they’re doing, it’s years later, they’ve taken advantage of you until you’re ashamed of yourself for allowing it. They hate you for being so weak, and show it with blatant disrespectful speech AT you while no one else is listening but you, then they top it off with being stunned that you aren’t still kowtowing to them and theirs; add to that sneaky, humiliating behavior toward you that you don’t figure out until several months later.
I’d much rather a person would step forward like a man instead of using sneaky, nasty methods to *zap* me and apparantly thinking they can still hide what they’ve done from “stupid, uncool” me and remain “Mr. Popularity” with me and everyone else (while laughing uproariously up their sleeve at what they got away with doing to me). Thinly veiled hostility to me is much worse than them simply cutting off all contact in my opinion. I suppose that isn’t as much fun for someone who obviously thinks they’re so “special”. - At this point, it’s sort of fun to watch this person puzzling over why I’ve suddenly quit jumping throught hoops.
Boy, are they in trouble! If Flim-Flam Axelrod has gravitas, then Bill Maher is the next Archbishop of Denver.
Then PUSH BACK!. Push him at every opportunity and on every issue. Get him back on his heels and keep him there.
Am I reading this right?!?! People are watching their life savings disappear, they're losing their jobs while 0bama and his thugs are learning econ 101 through OJT and the GOP feels "sorry" for them. I don't have one ounce of sympathy for that phony 0bama and his tax cheating cronies. He's a usurper and a liar.
I don't disagree with that at all. They have brainwashed a couple of generations into unquestioningly accepting collectivism, political correctness, wacky environmental causes, and always blaming America first. That said, now that a utopian socialist is president, it will be interesting to see how these same generations react to seeing economic opportunities evaporate, their standard of living decline, their family and friends unemployed, and high taxes soaking their parents (and therefore limiting their ability to support them). It's going to be a wake up call. Wonder if it will lead to their re-thinking the dogma they've been fed all these years?
DumbO is stupid and he does not know what he is doing. Either that or he is actively trying to drive the economy into the ground as fast as possible. The idiot only has to read a bit of the work of Lugwig von Mises or F A Hayek and he would know exactly why he should not do what he is doing.
At least the stupid MOFOs that voted for him are going to get the economy they deserve.
You mean years of doing nothing but promoting anti-American ideas while simitaneously being promoted because you are black doesn’t qualify you for office? Who knew?
I agree with you. I feel a sickening feeling each time I hear his name.
I turn off anything that has him speaking. That’s all he is. A big socialist mouth.
Some people are just now finding out what many of us already knew.
Those people will want to jump off a cliff when Zero’s dreams come true.
The Pubacan party does have some time to spend in the wilderness, but they better damn well spend that time making frequent raiding forays back into the real world. If they spend it navel gazing, they are in for another thumping.
They can put up or shut up! They can start by spelling out the treachery we can all see taking place in the halls of congress and 1600 penn ave. (Some day I hope to capitalize those names again.)
It just sucks when you have read the last chapter and know this is coming. It is funny how the Left clamors to eternally push for Communism which, in the end, we all know, fails.
I guess grabbing votes for the “free, free, free: crowd trumps common sense.
The GOP had better begin dealing with the sell-out, treasonous vermin in its own ranks before feeling any pity for that Marxist thug. Of course Hussein doesn’t know what the hell he’s talking about. But as long as Specter, Snowe and Collins sell out the American people, he doesn’t really have to know much, does he? Just introduce another pork fest to provide funds for every leftist organization on the planet and wait for the RINO traitors to sign on.
You precisely paraphrase and summarize my position on this whole thing, point by point. Well written! I suspect we are in for a world of hurt though, in spite of your, and my, “hope”.
I watched the same speech the GOP insiders did, and came away with completely different impression. I think they must have been sniffing glue on this one.
These insiders (GOP staffers on the hill) are a real problem for us. I think we should throw them out and start with some new conservative blood.
Great speech maker, empty head.
Ya ask him a hard question related to anything difficult and he is a zero.
They want to jump on the 'extended unemployment benefits' band wagon.
It's getting to be nice beach & surfing weather.
Obama’s favorite two words: UHHH and UMMM.
Just a few days ago, the Repubs were arguing Obama wouldn’t give in on what they wanted in the stimulus bill, and now they say he’s weak and can’t stand up to them.
So which is it? It would be good to know the truth, but don’t think it’s possible to get that out of any politician, Republican or Democrat.
No, actually, he smells strongly. Or at least his policy proposals do.
No! Nooooooooooo! *splat*
Where’s the optimism dude?
now that a utopian socialist is president
Obama looks more like a Marxist than a utopian socialist. That seems to be the opinion on FR too.
>>Wheres the optimism dude?<<
Sometimes the sky really IS falling. Once one acknowledges that, preparations for the possibility can be made.
Of course, that is where my analogy breaks down. You can’t do much to prepare for your chute not opening, once you’ve jumped out of the plane.
But he has a pretty smile!
What school ya going to in Va?
Yeah, a utopian socialist is a misguided fool.
A Marxist is intentionally malignant.
Virginia Highlands Community College. Cheapest place to go. For the moment.
Yea, feeling sorry for him. Unbelievable, the Stupid Party lives.
Been there many times,
Yes it is. I like it, it’s different from Texas in so many ways (including state income tax (argh!)).
These people think they smell weakness yet they keep getting knocked on their butts. And until they wise up they might as well not get up off the ground and keep embarrassing themselves.
That's one more than the Republicans have.
