Posted on 02/14/2013 10:44:19 AM PST by Kaslin
Our failure in chief gave us his annual blurred vision of America again Tuesday night.
Based on his State of the Union message, Barack Obamas eyesight is as ideologically impaired as ever.
Despite four years of failure, he still sees only one road America can go down to regain its economic health.
Not down the capitalist road of free enterprise and liberty that made us the richest country in history.
He wants to continue down the socialist road to more federal government -- which means more Obama taxes, more Obama spending, more Obama debt and more Obama government programs to fix problems government programs caused in the first place.
The president and his hallucinating idolaters in the mainstream liberal media think his failed policies and bad ideas will work their magic if only we try them for another four years.
But look at reality. Look at the unemployment rates in 2008 and 2012. Despite trillions of federal spending, theyre essentially the same.
Look at the federal debt in 2008 compared to 2012 -- its much worse today. Look at Americas bungled foreign policy.
Look at the middle class. The president keeps boasting about how hes going to use the federal government to help them. The reality is that the middle class is being devastated by his administration.
Starting Jan. 1, 2013, Americans with jobs have had their disposable incomes cut 2 percent because Social Security taxes were returned to their normal level.
And because of the rules under Obamacare, millions of employees are going to have their hours cut by employers who cant afford to pay every full-time workers health care.
That speech Tuesday night was a national joke. As usual, it was mostly hot air, bad ideas and tired platitudes. It delivered nothing sensible, newsworthy or brave.
What if Obama had turned to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and said, Hey Harry, how about passing a federal budget this year? Im tired of funding the government with continuing resolutions.
What if he had said, Sorry, my Green friends, youre living in a dream world. We need the Keystone Pipeline and Im going to do everything I can to speed up its construction.
What if Obama had turned to the survivors of deadly gun violence in the audience and said, I am not going to push for tougher new gun control laws because I know they would have done nothing to save your loved ones from being murdered.
No chance. Instead, the president stuck to his socialist script and threatened that if Congress doesnt cooperate with his latest brainstorms, he will get his way by using executive orders.
The people of this country will soon rue the day they voted to re-elect Obama in 2012. At some point theyll learn that his progressive way, the 1930s taxing-and-spending-and-regulating way, is not the answer.
Were in for four more years of slow growth, high unemployment rates, higher taxes and rising prices. Not to mention more government meddling in every aspect of our lives.
The impaired vision of Obama and his party is wrecking the economy, crippling the ability of our youth to get jobs and causing a decline in respect for America overseas.
My side -- the conservative Republican side -- is out of power. We dont have the White House and the Senate. The courts rule against us most of the time. And the mainstream media are still in the tank for Obama.
All we can do for now is watch Obamas Humpty Dumpty America as it falls off the wall and breaks into a million pieces.
At the end of the game, itll be up to the Republican Party, the conservatives, to put the country back together. I only hope we can live long enough to do it.
If I knew how to photoshop I’d put that headline on a grumpy cat poster.
America’s enemies like Obama smartly get themselves elected as federal government leaders with the help of the corrupt media. Then once they are in office they abuse constitutionally nonexistent federal government powers to try to destroy the USA. So in that aspect Obama is fulfilling his mission quite well.
LOVE IT! Many thanks, it’s now saved in my photos.
Since before the 2008 election, I have been posting that our government is irreparably broken and cannot be fixed at the ballot box. The leftists have refined their criminal ballot stuffing to a fine art and no one - either in or out of the government has the wherewithall to call them on it.
If the 2012 “re-election” of zero doesn’t convince you, Michael Reagan’s article should. We cannot depend on our elected “representatives” to stop Obama, restore our rights and freedoms, or fix the ills of government.
We, the people who own this government lock, stock and barrel, are America’s last and only hope. If we do not act to restore the system of government the Founding Fathers so carefully, thoughtfully amd lovingly created for us, we will watch what is left of America die in the next 4 years.
Our political elites are moral and ethical cowards whose concern is only for themselves and their continued occupancy of a given political office. There are a few bright spots but, overall, the Congress, the WH, the SCOTUS and state and local governments across the country are populated with cowards who are terrified to take a stand for the very things that made America the beacon of liberty and freedom for the world.
So, what’s it going to be? Are we going to sit idly by and watch these lawless communists destroy America, or are we finally going to draw a line in the sand and tell them “this is as far as you go. (To quote Bush 43) Either you’re with us, or you’re with (end quote) those whose sole purpose is to destroy the country we love.”
The time to decide is now. Which side of the line are you on?
“Since before the 2008 election, I have been posting that our government is irreparably broken and cannot be fixed at the ballot box. The leftists have refined their criminal ballot stuffing to a fine art and no one - either in or out of the government has the wherewithall to call them on it.”
Perfect. Better then mine
