Republicans continue to get rid of the dead wood in their party – the Murkowski clan is the latest sent to the dumper by Sarah Palin and Tea Party forces. What used to be the great Democratic Party continues to shrug shoulders and surrender to the corrupt forces that declared this to be “Obama’s time”. Obama? He’s having a great ol’ time vacationing while the country burns.
And the jobs? Where are the jobs? Obama promised that if his “stimulus” scam was passed unemployment would not rise beyond 8.5%. That was a lot of scams and a lot of Hope ago.
The Obama “stimulus” scam passed in 2009 and the excuse from B.O.T.s (Barack Obama Thugs) now is that ‘well, maybe we were too optimistic and should not have said that’. But the never ending Obama excuse machine has a lot of ’splaining to do. A few months ago, in April 2010 “Nobody messes with Joe” Biden promised more Hope for Change. Remember that scam? We do:
“Some time in the next couple of months we’re going to be creating between 250,000 jobs a month and 500,000 jobs a month,” Biden said at a fundraiser today in Pittsburgh.
Next month, Biden predicted, the nation’s employers will add between 100,000 to 200,000 jobs to their payrolls. [snip]
“We caught a lot of bad breaks on the way down,” Biden said. “We’re going to catch a few good breaks because of good planning on the way up.”
Good planning???? This is what they call good planning – waste of trillions of dollars, higher deficits, nation-devouring debt, and no jobs? And Joe said this recently in full knowledge of how badly the Obama scams, plans, and promises have fallen short.
Before we continue with our autopsy of the Obama Economy of Doom, a very brief discussion of our introductory paragraph is appropriate. First Sister Sarah then the original Mama Grizzly – Hillary.
This year in state after state Republican activists and disgusted Tea Party members are cleaning their barn. While we can disagree on the aims and ideology which drives Sarah Palin and the Tea Party what we admire is that they are doing what the “professional left” is incapable of doing – cleaning out their own barn of the stench in the Republican Party as they smell it.
The latest victory for Sarah Palin and the Tea Party, however it eventually turns out, is the shocking results from Alaska last night. Sarah Palin and the Tea Party activists supported a candidate without any real money, who was outspent tenfold, who was 20 to 30 points down in the polls. He is currently ahead as the few remaining votes to be counted indicate he will win the primary and eventually become a U.S. Senator from Alaska.
In contrast, at a Bill Clinton birthday party, we had this revealing comment from Jon Corzine, the recent loser to Republican Chris Christie in blue state New Jersey:
“…as former New Jersey Senator John Corzine looked on wistfully. “I just wish,” Corzine said shaking his head, “I mean I knew — she would have been able to handle this Congress… but it was just Obama’s time.”
What fatalistic bunk! Instead of fighting for what America needed the once great Democratic Party surrendered to the worse of Chicago politics and a Democratic establishment that thought they knew better than the voters. Disgusting.No, it was NOT Obama's time. Barack cut in line, refused to wait his turn and then cheated, schemed and lied to get the nomination to a job that it turns out he's not only unqualified for, he can't even pretend to be interested in it anymore. Barack's forever on a vacation. Forever.
He pretended he wanted to lead. He pretended he wanted to be president. All he wanted was the title. I really wish he'd announce he was stepping down. I'd prefer Joe Biden in a minute.
As the economy continues to remain in the toilet, it really should be driving home just how much we needed a real leader at this time in history. We needed Hillary. And some of us knew that and we voted for her. In fact, more of us voted for her than those who voted for Barack. But he got gifted with the nomination when he should have been kicked to the curb.
He is forever more a stain on history and the man who came in to continue all the Bush programs. We had so much hope during the Bush years. We just knew that we'd elect a Democrat and that the Democrat would fight for us. Instead we got Barack who fights for no one but himself.
And he doesn't even give a damn about unemployment. Anyone who did would not be vacationing on Martha's Vineyard and golfing while the rest of us are either looking for jobs or scared we're going to lose ours.
