From the Washington Post:
In his weekly radio and Internet address today, Obama expressed determination to “get exploding deficits under control” and described his budget request as “sober in its assessments, honest in its accounting, and lays out in detail my strategy for investing in what we need, cutting what we don’t, and restoring fiscal discipline.”
This is coming from the same guy that just signed a law that puts our country over a trillion dollars in debt and has numerous members of his cabinet that are tax cheats and liars. I am already hoping for change in 2010. Aren’t you?
“How about we all stop paying our mortgages. It’s a moral hazard.”
Welcome ladies and gentlemen, to the Barack Obama Presidential Beg-a-Thon!
What has happened to our society? What a disgrace.
The New Deal didn’t work. Yeah, I said it.
Simple math really.
Stock Market crashes, 1929.
Herbert Hoover (R), is in office. He starts down a path of regulation, big government and other programs to fix the downturn instead of leaving it alone.
Economy sinks further, and Franklin Roosevelt (D) is elected in 1932. Unemployment at 25%.
“New Deal” passes. Lots of big government programs, social security, spending, etc, 1933.
Second “New Deal” passes. Even more spending, 1935.
Unemployment still at 15% in 1937, and rose in 38, and 39.
Unemployment is still high and still in a Depression, 1940.
December 7, 1941: World War II begins, Depression is over.
Nine Years of Big Government. It didn’t work folks.
Reagan inherited a horrible recession, inflation, and unemployment from the disaster of Jimmy Carter in 1980. Within two years of tax cuts, and staying out of the private sector, the economy was booming, and by the time he left office, America was unbelievably prosperous.
Faces of the jihad in Chechnya. Same kind of people responsible for the murder of almost 400 children in a Beslan school. Same kind of people that are in Guantanamo right now.
But hey, they are victims.
Remember the USS Cole? The ship in the Gulf of Aden that was suicide bombed by al Qaeda terrorists, who murdered seventeen U.S. Navy sailors?
The Pentagon’s senior judge overseeing terror trials at Guantanamo Bay dropped charges Thursday against an al-Qaida suspect in the 2000 USS Cole bombing, upholding President Barack Obama‘s order to freeze military tribunals there.
The charges against suspected al-Qaida bomber Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri marked the last active Guantanamo war crimes case.
Meanwhile, there are a bunch of families with the victims of this murdering dog that continue to wonder if they will ever receive some justice for the murders of their loved ones.
Obama’s doing really good. He’s working hard to “restore our image” abroad, while at the same time, making himself look like a weak fool at home.
Note: You are also making yourself look weak around the world.
At the same time everyone is cutting back on spending, Congress has voted to give themselves more petty cash.
Let’s not forget that these are the same people who constantly berate Corporate executives for getting bonuses and flying on corporate jets as being insensitive to others in a recession.
