WHY OBAMA WANTS <i>America</i> TO FAIL
Townhall.com ^ | 03.08.09 | Kevin McCullough

Posted on 03/07/2009 9:26:31 PM PST by jodiluvshoes

On Saturday the President challenged his country to "discover great opportunity in the midst of great crisis..."

...But is that what "we the people" hired him to do? To use "great opportunities" to change the face and fabric of the nation?

"We the People" were promised swift and effective action towards getting the markets repaired by President Obama, but they have dropped about 1400 points each week since he's taken power. "We the People" were promised greater fiscal responsibility by candidate Obama, yet his own proposals throw us down a black hole of debt, the likes of which we've never seen in a single year of an administration, much less in the first sixty days of one. "We the People" were promised the greatest commitment ever to oversight of the federal use of the money we send the government. What we've been handed is a series of embarrassing nominations of people who are willing to use the force of a gun to make you pay your taxes, but did not think twice about not paying theirs. "We the People" were told that his push for a stimulus would get people working again, yet barely 3% of it goes to actual job creation and projects that can even be initiated in the next 24 months. "We the People" were promised greater employment fulfillment and more vibrant business and economic outlooks when Obama's administration finally put together their plan to save the lending institutions. What we are dealing with is a greater spike in the unemployment numbers in Obama's first sixty days than was experienced under President Bush in his first seven years. "We the People" were promised an earmark free, pork free, bare bones budget, but as of last count Obama's omnibus bill contained 9200 earmarks.

“”We the People” were promised an earmark free, pork free, bare bones budget”

Just the most obvious of his promises that are as hollow as his ‘Plans’ for Stimulus. Truly amazing and frightening how far he has been able to go on this madness after only 45 days in place.

With the debt on our shoulders we are now endentured servants to the state. The mantra “the blacks should have white slaves” has come to pass.

Candidate Obama spoke as if he had a magic wand (I believe it was Candidate Clinton who used that phrase) that he would wave to solve the nation's problems.

But now that he is in office, he is downplaying his ability to take action that would result in quick results of a POSITIVE nature.

And therein lies the irony.

Present Obama DOES have it within his power to take such action and it WOULD result in quick, positive results for the economy.

That action would be to cut taxes, veto the massive spending bills and put a halt to the massive effort to appease Global Warming fanatics.

I realize he will never do any of these things.

I'm just saying the possibility exists if someone wanted to put these ideas forward.

Sarah Palin, perhaps?

Over the past week I have noticed a pattern developing in Obama’s supporters that I have heard interviewed on talk radio. The consensus has been that these supporters thought Obama was going to work toward reducing the deficit and be bipartisan, Obama is expected to be a uniter not a divider.

So far, these supporters have indicated that they are quite disappointed in Obama and want him to go in the direction of working with Republicans, cut spending and focus on job creation.

Well, we all know that it has been exactly the opposite.

I can see how one could have been fooled by Obama’s rhetoric on the campaign trail and made the mistake of believing and trusting Obama.

It is going to get very ugly when these folks realize they have been had by ‘the one’....unfortunately, we will all reap the whirlwind when it hits...

What the nation is getting is EXACTLY what it should have expected, and is EXACTLY what most of us on this forum have expected.

The man is a disaster ab initio. Somehow, he must be removed from office. He is hell-bent on destroying the nation, economically, socially, militarily, and in every way imaginable.

It will take a generation to recover from this, and even longer if the Democrat Party is allowed to escape blame.

Not only Obama and the Democrats, but the entire socialist establishment has to be taken down, dismantled, broken up, crushed, and buried. That includes everywhere the infection has festered, in government, in foundations, in academia, and in media.

Personally, I’d favor a government which would implement a rigorous adherence to Constitutional principles while at the same time approriately attending to the traitors within.

ALL of them.

All done aided and abetted by the democratically controlled house and senate.

That has been going on for 50 years. It's called welfare. We piled up $5 trillion in debt in the "war on poverty". All it did was foster multiple generations of fatherless black families living on the government dole. Obama is just upping the ante now. LBJ's massive failure wasn't lesson enough.

The only reason Democrats want to label something "bipartisan" is so they can duck responsibility. If some Republicans vote for the bills, they are at "fault" as well when the bills fail. It's just a matter of being able to spread the blame.

Whoever said there is no bipartisanship on Capitol Hill is wrong! Our elected officials are working together to cook up bipartisan pork!

“We The People” need to rise up and “DEMAND REAL CHANGE” for Americans!

Sarah Palin is the only RNC candidate that I trust for President, and the reason being is she is our closest step to President Reagan.

Her beliefs, passion, ethics, leadership background and positive attitude are what I cherish most about her.

Sarah Palin 2012: Let's get America back on track!

"ALL of them."

While it is still possible.

I've always thought that by blacks voting Democrat, they're ironically voting to enslave all of us. Sort of like liberal Jews and their passion for gun control.

Obama wants to bring the United States to it's knees to implement marxist socialism.

A short study of marxism will show the reality.

Search the net on marxist takeovers.

We got that “swift and effective action.” The effects are not compatible with a market system or a free society but they are very much compatible with Hussein’s ideas about how things should be- after the Revolution.

The polls still show that the American sheeple have blind faith in their “leader”. They are waiting for the “check in the mail.”

The American people don’t believe that. They have “faith” in this “secular” Messiah. Didn’t Re.Ev. Wright say that Obama is “the closest thing to Jesus out there”, or some other sacrilegious nonsense?

I am afraid that the American people as a whole, particularly in the Middle West, the East Coast, and the Pacific Coast don’t take Mrs. Palin seriously. They want Oprah’s Choice.

The GOP has pushed her to back burner, and are touting Mitt Romney (who was at last Bildeberger meeting along with the Obamas, Clintoons and Al Gore..the usual criminals. I heard Gringrich is thinking of throwing his hat in ring (barf).

All these are very noble aspirations and goals. I can think of no way that they could achieved - short of civil war.

A very ugly thought indeed.

“I can see how one could have been fooled by Obama’s rhetoric on the campaign trail and made the mistake of believing and trusting Obama.”
<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

Now this is the part I DON’T understand! Obama’s rhetoric was so over the top that I don’t see how people were fooled if they listened to the words and not just the music. He stood on the stage at Denver and said that he would DEFEAT POVERTY, DISEASE AND CLIMATE CHANGE! Nobody can tell me that that is just standard political promise making, it is clearly claiming omnipotent powers, only a diety could do those things. Did people not hear what he was saying or did they actually think he was God?

Of course as soon as he was assured that he had won the election his tune changed from I can do anything to “No, we can’t.”

Is that all you want? I want an end to poverty, disease and climate change just like we were promised. Oh, and I want free travel to anywhere on the globe and free beer, wine and whiskey and hot and cold running women and whatever else I might think of, the government should furnish anything and everything I want.

I’d love to see Mitt and Sarah team up but unfortunately the religious and abortion issues would keep them from having a real chance with the majority.
