Well, come March 1, I guess the world is coming to an end. The incredible fear-mongering that is going on in this administrationand the Democrat party as a whole is unbelievable. What if we faced a “real” crisis and not just a measly 2% cut in government spending that isn’t really a “cut” anyway? Isn’t all of this hysteria a bit overblown?
You can say one thing about this bunch; they are right about one thing. Obama said that “this will be the most transparent administration in history.” They sure are, because we can see right through this pandering and manipulation game that they are playing. How about that speech last week with Obama standing in front of firefighters and police saying that these people will be the ones to lose their jobs? He flat out knows that is not true because the Federal government has nothing to do with them. That is a state and local issue.
He continues to use people to his advantage to mislead the American public and try to scare them to death. Over and over again he parades out groups that will evoke some kind of emotion with the voters. He did it with Newtown to push his gun agenda, with doctors in white lab coats to push Obamacare. He uses the elderly and anyone else that can push Americas buttons.
What kind of leadership is this?! I’ll tell you what kind—no leadership. This is not the way to solve problems and bring this broken economy upright again. He is still in campaign mode and is furiously campaigning to win back the House in the 2014 mid-terms. It’s so transparent a 5 year old could see it. This President does not want to fix our economy. He is doing nothing to reduce the unemployment rate that is nearing 8% once again, nothing to remove the strangling regulations from small businesses so that they can prosper. No, he wants to raise the minimum wage so that MORE people will be put out of work!
The payroll tax increase is already taking a toll on businesses with Wal-Mart reporting weaker salesin the fourth quarter. Other companies are reporting with numbers that were below expectations as well. Gas prices are rising all across the country at a higher pace than normal. Most of the country has not even switched from their winter blends yet prices are in the $3.50-4.50 a gallon range for a gallon of regular. The Keystone pipeline is in limbo because Obama doesn’t want to make a hard decision on whether to side with the unions or the kook environmentalists.
What is the leader of the free world doing? He’s out playing golf with Tiger Woods and the media has it’s panties in a twist because they were shut out! They seem to have no major concern over issues that might really affect this country.
Still, when he and the other Democrat talking heads do get down to discussing the issues, there are no solutions, just scare tactics. No conversations about how we need to cut spending in order to save Social Security and Medicare, just the same old mantra about taxing the rich.
The only strategy that they have is to create fear in the hearts of the American people. They feel that if the folks think “schools will suffer, teachers will be laid off, Head Start programs will cease to exist, the mentally ill will be roaming the streets, criminals will be let out of prisons and gasp…you will have to wait hours in line at the airport because TSA will be cut back!”, then they can manipulate the public into turning against those evil Republicans who are not bowing to the whims of Obama. I guess no one will mention the fact that this was all his idea in the first place.
I’m with Rush Limbaugh; this is embarrassing. If this is what Obamas leadership looks like in a non-crisis, imagine what he will do when it all hits the fan in the not too distant future of unsustainable debt and bankrupt programs. The “sky is NOT falling yet”. He should save the panic for when it really does.
