Barack Hussein Obama (mmm, mmm, mmm) is out campaigning for reelection and is talking up Stimulus II. That is his new jobs bill which is as bad as the old one. Stimulus I was supposed to keep unemployment below 8% and provide all these shovel ready jobs, jobs Obama admitted were not there. His first plan spent nearly a trillion dollars and provided very few jobs. We have lost more jobs than gained since he took office and if he had not expanded the size of government there would be an even greater job loss.
The public is not in favor of Stimulus II. Most were not in favor of Stimulus I but Obama had control of both chambers of Congress so he was able to ram it through. Now that Republicans are in control of the House Obama is meeting resistance. Tyrants hate when they meet resistance because they feel that they should be able to do what they want (which is why King Barry has bypassed Congress claiming that we can’t wait for them). I have failed to find the “we can’t wait for Congress” clause in the Constitution.
The public is not in favor of this despite Obama’s claim that it is. The public does not want us to have Stimulus II because it will be like Stimulus I, a slush fund to pay off Democrat constituencies. Obama knows this and his game plan is not to really pass this because he really does not care about job creation, he cares about pinning the blame on Republicans.
If Obama cared about jobs the economy would be better. He has been claiming for three years that he is focused like a laser on jobs. If he has then he either does not want to create them or he is inept (I believe both). I will leave it to you Democrats to decide which. The fact is, he has not created jobs nor does he want to. He needs things to be bad and to get reelected so he can be unleashed for four years imposing new and ever expanding government programs to help the people. He wants to impose his Marxist beliefs and he needs it to be bad AND get reelected. That is why he is blaming Republicans.
Obama has told us, from in front of a bridge, that God wants us to pass the Obama jobs bill. Jay Carney (as in carnival barker) said that this is like the Biblical passage that Jesus helps those who help themselves. This IS NOT a passage from the Bible but I don’t hold liberals too critically in this area. They don’t read it, think religion (particularly Christianity) should be barred from everything and only invoke religion when they need to use it as a political tool, not a tool for living a good life.
Obama invokes God from time to time. I, unlike Obama, do not claim to speak for God. I don’t know if God wants the jobs bill passed though I would doubt he would want anything that takes even more freedom away and gives government more power to pass. I find it hard God would side with Obama given that Obama thinks having a baby punishes a woman, supports abortion AND murdering children born alive after an unsuccessful abortion. I just don’t see God supporting that kind of person but I don’t speak for God. I speak for me and I don’t support it.
Obama also, as he often does, invoked Ronald Reagan.
Obama also resorted to one of his favorite rhetorical tricks by quoting Reagan, who was president from 1981 to 1989, and is a hero to modern day conservatives, to decry Republican policies.
Reagan, Obama said, argued that it was “common sense” to repair bridges and highways before they needed to be rebuilt in future years at many times the cost.
“Since when do we have Republicans voting against Ronald Reagan’s ideas?” Yahoo News
The real question is, since when does Obama agree with Reagan? I know Obama did this to try and give the impression that Republicans are against Stimulus II because and only because, they are opposed to Obama and it is all politics. Republicans loved Reagan and what he did and I want to do the same thing so it must be because of me.
Yes Barry, it makes sense to fix bridges before they need to be replaced. You had that chance with Stimulus I which you said would create jobs, fix roads, and repair bridges. None of that happened on any scale to make a difference. You are playing politics.
But, if you are on board with Reagan and are not opposed to doing what he did then don’t take half steps. Don’t play politics. Use the full Monty. Reagan CUT TAXES. You and your Democrats want to raise taxes on the so called rich (though the increases will be felt by everyone) and Reagan CUT TAXES. The Reagan tax cuts stimulated the economy and allowed private businesses to create millions of jobs. Reagan’s policies got us out of the Jimmy Carter funk of high inflation, through the roof interest rates and high unemployment. Reagan reversed all of the Carter malaise and turned this country around. Unemployment went down and the economy improved. So Barry, go all the way and do ALL the things that Reagan did.
Then Republicans can get on board.
I know that Obama thinks God is in his corner and Carney thinks the Bible says Jesus helps those who help themselves. They are incorrect but since they seem intent on following scripture (just like Obama now wants to follow Reagan), let me help them and those who want government to provide for them:
“And to aspire to live quietly, and to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands, as we instructed you, so that you may walk properly before outsiders and be dependent on no one.” – 1 Thessalonians 4:11-12
And for the Obama regime as well as the OWS crowd, I offer this:
“For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.” 1 Thessalonians 3:10
So what I think we have here is the Bible telling people not to depend on anyone else (including government) and to DO FOR THEMSELVES. And if they don’t, they don’t get to eat!
Beware of Obama. Marxists are inherently evil…
Never surrender, never submit.
