Item #6: But not State Gummint
Item #7: Let My People Go!
Item #8: Still Counting
Item #1: Blame Bush, Blame Bush!: The biggest news during Obama's 16th week of being "large and in charge" is about the biggest deficit in the history of the United States of America.
Of course, Peter Orszag, White House Budget Director, immediately resorted to the Official Obama Mantra™ "BLAME BUSH!" And of course, we all know Obama's spending of $787 Billion in failed "porkulus" and $410B to cover 8,500 earmarks has absolutely nothing to do with the deficit - does it? Are you people actually buying this crap? Really? Not even the libtards at MSNBC believe that. Does anyone else still not see through this charlatan? He spends like a drunken Republican, and then wants to Blame Bush for creating his own HUGE deficit...what a poser! The CBO estimate was right (pictured) and Obama was wrong...again!
Item #2: The Stimulus Ain't Stimulatin': On 6 May I posted the CBO benchmark for successful stimulus spending on the top left corner of this blog. But, I don't even need to keep track of those benchmark stats because Obama just admitted his stimulus isn't working. By the standards set forth in THIS DOCUMENT, the stimulus is already far behind where we should be in recovery. Perhaps to try to hide their failure, the administration hired 72,000 more gummint employees; 66,000 for the census alone. And so, while the MSM dutifully reported a "drop" in new unemployment filings to 539,000, the real number of unemployed in April was 611,000 when subtracting these temporary gummint workers.
Was there an intent to deceive by your Messiah? Liberals would be calling to impeach Bush had he done this. Of course, they'd call for impeaching Bush if he farted in public. Let's Blame Bush for this failure, too.
Item #3: Run! Obama's Coming!!! When Obama and Rattner fired the CEO of General Motors (Rick Wagoner), they took ownership of GM. When Obama threw our money at GM, he said it was for the good of company and the country.
Now, the new CEO, Fritz Henderson, may preempt the TROTUS's moves to also fire him by shutting the doors to GM in Detroit and moving the company. In fact, he may sell off U.S. plants on the way out. Way to go, Messiah. First you wasted our money on Chrysler, and soon GM will be "tits up", too. Batting a thousand there, eh Spanky?
Item #4: Bombs Away, Just Don't Torture Them! This LINK shows two things:
1) That Obama is serious about killing terrorists, and
2) Obama is serous about killing pesky civilians. In fact, The Messiah would rather kill civilians than "harshly interrogate" terrorists. In case your name is FERD and you didn't click the link, it says,
"In a blunt rebuff of the Afghan president, President Barack Obama's national security adviser said Sunday the United States would not end airstrikes in Afghanistan even though they are blamed in the deaths of hundreds of civilians during the war."Here is a picture of one of the babies killed by an Obama drone strike: LINK.
But, rest easy left-leaning lemmings, Obama will find some way to BLAME BUSH for his bombing of civilians. You'll salve your cognitive dissonance when next He reads from his teleprompter and tells of the Evil Bush launching drones into Afghanistan.
Item #5: Laid Off? Join the Obama Revolutionary Change: As mentioned earlier, when unemployment rises, just hire more people in the federal gummint. In fact, if you're struggling to start your own business, you're a sucker! The average pay for Obama gummint jobs is $75 G's. But don't take my word; read the CBS Blog.
Just a wee little problem with this though. Since gummint doesn't actually produce anything of value, who's paying for these jobs?
- That's right, the sucker struggling to start his or her own business.
Item #6: How's That Stimulus Helping the States? It ain't. This is the second great failure of the Obama Administration -- but you don't see much coverage about it. While Obama is hiring FEDERAL gummint workers, STATE gummints are increasing their layoffs.
That vaunted stimulus package only created a false sense of comfort and a short respite for state deficits. Even though the stimulus is offsetting short term layoffs, long term problems are not addressed by the short-term thinking democrats. Read what Missouri lawmakers have realized is the best use for stimulus money. It's quite obvious that bigger gummint is not the answer to any pertinent economic question.
Item #7: Hey, Those Are My Voters There, Buddy: While Obama has spent a great deal to hire more census takers, he has also cut $400M from the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAPP). This program is used to help states cover the costs of jailing illegal immigrants (cuz they're criminals, in case that isn't clear to some). Coincidence?
As Senators both Obama and Clinton complained that the Bush administration short changing their local gummints:
"Each year, the SCAAP program is underfunded," Clinton said in 2006 comments urging support for her amendment. She cited a 2005 Government Accountability Office study that found local governments get only 25 percent of their costs reimbursed through the program."Throughout our country and in my state, there are counties and municipalities that are covering the costs of dealing with education, healthcare, and law enforcement without adequate or any federal reimbursement," Clinton said. "So we have left our local and state governments to fend for themselves. They should not be left to bear these costs alone because it is not they who are making federal immigration policy."Whahappen? Why is it suddenly okay to short change states for incarcerating criminals? Maybe because they vote DumbasCrap?
I hope Arizona, Caleefornia, and Texas all sue the feds to reinstate this money.
Item #8: How Long Must This Go ON?!? Where are all those promises?
1) There are still troops in Iraq
2) Guantanamo is Still Open
