BULLETIN: Bloomberg.com reported on Wednesday that Americans have not only given a rousing thumbs-down to Obama’s “Job Act” but thumbed their noses at the president because of it.
As if President Barack Hussein Obama were foretelling the future at the same time he was serving up an object lesson on how he believes Americans should solemnify the memory of September 11th, 2001 by a “day of service,” he slapped up vittles in a soup kitchen on 9/11.
Most Americans disregarded, if they didn’t ridicule, his asinine idea of substituting public service in lieu of solemnity on 9/11 but they will be hard pressed to dismiss the image of soup kitchens in our future, especially in view of reports of spreading poverty and in light of the president’s lackluster performance in so-called “jobs speech” last Thursday.
Obama’s screwing up history, as in saying Lincoln “founded” the Republican Party and his gaffe-ing his way through his presidency have been more than adequately covered up by his mainstream media. (http://bit.ly/qKFXDP)
It will be far more challenging for Obama’s MSM to provide cover for an entire speech which was essentially an hour-long whine indirectly bitching at Republicans for their intransigence in favor of preserving the Republic and avoiding national bankruptcy instead of burdening the taxpayers, their children, and grandkids with another boondoggle.
With his trillion dollar 2009 unstimulating stimulus an abject failure in putting Americans back to work, Obama’s economic wizards devised another sure-fire scheme, the piddling Son of Stimulus, a $447 billion plan incorporating many of the unpalatable elements of the original failure, features previously rejected even by Obama’s own Democrats.
This time around, the Anointed One left his ointments home and didn’t emulate Bartles and James by politely thanking Congress in advance for its support. Instead, almost churlishly, he repeatedly demanded the Congress pass the new waste now, at once, two weeks ago, if possible.
In various forms, he reiterated his demand at least 17 times, apparently fearing that if congresspeople read it before passing it, they may not like it and forgetting that he isn’t an emperor and that the legislative branch is co-equal with the executive.
All but stamping his foot, whining of the consequences of non-passage and touting the improbable benefits, Obama resembled more an petulent child than a president. My four year old grandson would be sent to time-out or, preferably, to his bed, for such infantile conduct.
Early on in his unprecedented second address to a joint session of Congress and the American people within less than 32 months–this president obviously craves attention as much as my grandson–Obama declared his “Jobs Act” would be fully “paid for,” as opposed to Obamacare, for instance.
Days after his speech, the president, was secure in the family quarters, hunkered down while the his lackeys tried to explicate his speech. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney revealed the source of those payments and conceded Obama hadn’t a clue as to how many jobs–if any–would be created.
Continuing Obama’s re-election tactic of winning votes through class and racial warfare, the bulk of payers–including small business owners who employ the majority of wage-earners in the United States–would consist of taxpayers earning over $200,000 per annum. Limitations would be placed on taxable deductions by those individuals, mom-and-pop enterprises, and anyone earning under $80,000 would reap the tax benefits.
Such hogewash and doublespeak! They and most of the country would reap diddly.
So what if mom would tell pop they had to cut back and not hire summer help in order to pay their increased taxes?
So what if Exxon Mobil is compelled to cough up more to the feds and consumers will pay more at the pump?
So what if zillionaires, like Al Gore, couldn’t write off corporate jets and compensate by contributing less to charity?
So what if charities suffer and desperate people are forced to turn to cash-starved local government entities for assistance and become virtual wards of the state?
So what if those $80,000 families saw their reductions eliminated because they have to subsidize unemployed junior’s car insurance and pay full price for missy’s summer camp?
If passed in its entirety, the ultimate and only beneficiary of Obama’s “Tax Act” would be Barack Hussein Obama. In that unlikely eventuality, he could cruise into a second term. If Son of Stimulus is rejected in whole or part, he will use the rejection as election ammunition to again affix blame for all the nation’s unemployment-economic ills on the GOP.
President Obama emphasized in his baloney-laden speech that, ”We’ve got to decide what our priorities are.” That line, like his “Pass it!” insistence, was a redundancy. Anyone in his or her right mind is fully aware of his priorities and they aren’t remotely tangential to economic recovery, reducing unemployment, or anything else related to the well-being of the United States.
They are all integrally interwoven with this president’s lust for re-election at all costs and anyone complicit in that scenario will be co-conspirators in that disaster.
