Skip to comments.Obama and the lunatic left: President and his followers intend to end America’s greatness

President Obama is politically insane. This is the real meaning of his speech Thursday night in front of a joint session of Congress. Albert Einstein defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over, expecting a different result. By that definition, Mr. Obama is a lunatic leftist.
Much of his speech called for more of the same - government activism; massive spending on infrastructure, bridges and roads; extending the payroll tax cut; and more public aid to states and municipalities. In short, he seeks to perpetuate the dismal policies of Obamanomics. He is a reckless ideologue masquerading as a pragmatist.
Mr. Obamas presidency has been dominated by one seminal reality - failure. His nearly $1 trillion stimulus; record budget deficits; unprecedented levels of public spending; the government bailouts of the auto, insurance, housing and banking sectors; billions heaped on green jobs; Obamacare; Dodd-Frank to reform Wall Street, and huge outlays for food stamps and unemployment benefits - all have failed to restore the economy.
In fact, they have done the opposite. Unemployment is 9.1 percent. Growth is anemic. In August, no new net jobs - none - were created. Consumer confidence is low. Inflation is rising. The value of the dollar plummets. Burdensome regulations are strangling business. America is being buried under a mountain of debt. For the first time in history, its credit rating has been downgraded. The country is not only on the verge of national bankruptcy, but of economic collapse....

Pathological narcissism, just to begin with.
Let’see. Spend a lot to create a problem and spend a lot to pretend to fix it. Gee it’s almost like the goal is to bankrupt us.
Everything Obama is, and all of his failures were predicted by almost everyone on FR in 2008.
Why didn't those idiot independents just listen?
If they are stupid enough to trust the liberal media then they got what was coming to them. But they created this mess for all the rest of us too. I'll never forgive or forget that kind of idiocy.
You and me both!
I left the service in 72 and have never been out of work until .. Three Years Ago!
I don’t have a health problem but from what I have been told .. My age is a problem!
This new Obamacare cr@p where a person can be carried on their parents health insurance until the age of 26 has made it where companies will hire someone that age or younger so as not to incur the expense of health insurance for someone my age! (59)
excellent summation, but one that was known by many before he was elected.
Question? Why are all the socialists (i.e. Republicans) still playing pattycake with the putz?
Damn I hate asking rhetorical questions this early in the morning!!!! :)
The Obama legacy
Zer0 is the name I give to the Pied Piper of folk lore. To him it is a story of paying a debt that is due. It is the debt he perceives we owe for slavery:
“”It should come as no surprise that the next morning there was no money lying in the niche.”
“With the sun’s first rays Korneuburg experienced its own drama. Hans Mousehole, dressed in a purple-red robe and playing a golden flute, stood at the marketplace in front of the town hall. The melodious tunes that he evoked from his instrument must have sounded like music from heaven to the children, for they gathered about the mysterious musician with joyful haste. Still playing, he walked toward the Danube, where a large and handsome ship awaited him.”
“Led by the flute player, the procession boarded the ship. Its sails billowed, and it floated out to the middle of the stream.”
“This time the rat catcher did not return. To the contrary, the ship sailed further and further from the city, and neither it nor any who were aboard were ever seen there again.”
[I haven’t had a job worthy of the name since Dear Leader took office.]
I actually have two great jobs right now. Unfortunately, and I know this is a small point, neither of them pays me much if any money. And when I do ‘make’ money, people don’t pay my commissions because they are bankrupt.
So yes, it sucks pretty bad out there. Looking to add another job.
Wow. That sound's like a lawsuit against an employer just waiting to happen, and I'm not big on lawsuits. But if the shoe fits...f*ck 'em. I would think all you need to do is just hint at a discrimination lawsuit. Then again, if your disability can't allow you to fulfill the duties, well, you're probably out of luck. Still, the Disability Act was very wide reaching. Best of luck, Vet.
IMO? They should have shelled out the billions of dollars in infrastructure instead of bailing out the banks. It would have been better use of our funds.
And, let us not lose sight of the real culprits - liberals likes of Pelosi, Reid, and Franks. They’ve been in office a lot longer than any President. We need to replace them with newbies who are not willing to ‘play the same old game.’
That is what is so upsetting to the liberals about the Tea Party. We want REAL change!
BTW, hope you are doing well.
Failure? He's not doing the same thing over and over hoping for a *different* result. This is the result he is after, so it makes perfect sense that he would he would promote the same destructive policies, programs, and perversions.
Obama is the destroyer, king of the locust destroyers (swarms of govt. thugs, union thugs, chicago thugs, Holder's thugs, mooslim thugs...), change agent out of the Abyss. America (and Israel) is the choice target because Obama despises a people and nation founded upon truth, freedom, and light. Pharobama is the ruler over the house of bondage and is the prince of darkness.
America represents life and justice; Obama represents death and hell.
Unemployment is only a problem if you are 50+, Male, White, Christian.
Don’t mention that you’re disabled, just mention that you are eligible for VA health care and won’t be needing their health insurance.
Most civilian employers won’t know the difference and your disability won’t be an issue.
Good question, I still cannot figure out why anyone expected anything but disaster from Obama.
