I was watching Fox a few minutes ago, and this Democrat strategist was pontificating about how we shouldn’t go back to the “failed policies of the past that got us into this great recession”. These are the talking points all the Democrats are spouting right now, because they have no successes to brag about. The best they can come up with is to blame Bush for all our troubles. it’s eerie how so many of them have the same almost word-for-word statements about this, too. You’d almost think they were reading a prepared statement…
I am pretty darned tired of hearing that refrain – and it is a lie, anyway.
It simply won’t wash any more. Obama has had most of two years to operate, and let’s all remember that the Democrats have controlled Congress for four years, now. It’s time for Obama and the Democrats to man up and take responsibility for the failure of their policies. Even if they were right about Bush, it is academic at this point – their policies in general are rejected by most of the American public, and their economic policies have just plain failed. This is nobody’s fault but Obama and the Democrats.
Amazingly, the Democrats blame Bush for overspending; and in the next breath, ignore Obama who has done the exact same thing, three times worse and in 1/4 the time.
That’s point one. Point two is this: while the Bush administration certainly did contribute to the current mess by overspending, the Democrats were right in the thick of it. If you recall, the original issue that started this recession was all the mortgages that were given to people who in reality could not afford them. The movement to award these unrealistic mortgages was lead by Democrats, notably Barney Frank and Chris Dodd. But let’s don’t forget that Barack Obama was personally complicit in working with Acorn to coerce lending institutions into awarding these mortgages as part of their ‘social engineering’ push – the push that Obama continues to this day, and the push that is actively destroying the remaining economy of this country.
Additionally, I will remind you that several years before the recession began, several Republicans (including McCain) lead an initiative to institute oversight of Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae (in May, 2006) that might have headed off this entire recession; and that initiative was defeated by the Democrats – again, specifically Barney Frank and Chris Dodd, among others, who didn’t want oversight!
I don’t give a rip what any Democrat or Liberal says, at this point; all they know how to do is spout their talking points. They seem to be incapable of looking at the facts and drawing realistic conclusions.
Obama accused us of “clinging to our Bibles and guns”, and I know I do; but at least we aren’t clinging to delusional social and economic policies not founded in reality, that will fail and lead to much greater hardship than any that existed before.
The Democrats are in large part directly to blame for the current recession, and Obama’s anti-business policies are extending it.
Out of work? Can’t get a job? Tell the Democrats to stop their persecution of business. All wealth is ultimately generated by business. All jobs are ultimately created by business; even government jobs. Because without businesses and private citizens paying taxes, there would be no government jobs. What is good for business is indirectly good for us working folks.
I just wanted to settle that.
