Obama Radio Address 1-10-09

Once again Obama is setting the stage for taking a bad economy, making it worse, and claiming success. 

Excerpt. 

We start this new year in the midst of an economic crisis unlike any we have seen in our lifetime. We learned yesterday that in the past month alone, we lost more than half a million jobs a total of nearly 2.6 million in the year

In 10 days we’ll officially be under Obama’s thumb, with his party also controlling both houses of Congress.  When these policies turn a crisis into a catastrophe, they’ll try to blame the Republicans, but it’s going to be all on them.  He claims economists from “across the spectrum” insist government must intervene, but these two economists must not be in Obama’s spectrum.  The two researchers from UCLA studied the Great Depression and determined FDR’s approach (whose lead Obama is following) actually made things worse.

Noticeably absent was any mention of the conflict in the Middle East–no mention of Iraq, no mention of the Israeli-Hamas conflict, nothing on foreign policy at all.

    • There is no doubt they did, and true conservatives have said so for a long time. I haven’t been a Bush defender for a long time.

      But, just because I criticize Bush, doesn’t mean I’m going to give Obama a pass.
