Now he wants to be responsible?
Then-Senator Obama voted for the $700 billion bank bailout
Then-President-elect Obama called the Bush bailout of GM and Chrysler a necessity.
President Obama then rushed the massive, pork-laden $787 billion “stimulus” package through Congress.
President Obama then followed his “stimulus” package with a $3.4 trillion budget that rocketed the federal deficit to $1.8 trillion, four times last year’s record.
President Obama has demanded Congress complete work on his health care reform plan, that nobody can accurately calculate the cost for, by August.
President Obama also sunk more billions of taxpayer dollars into the two failed American auto manufacturers in a Socialist venture that’s more than likely going to cost billions more.
This President has, without a doubt, proven himself the most fiscally irresponsible leader of the free world in history. And he’s achieved all of that in his first 5 months in office.
Then today, unbelievably, this same not-quite-a-closet Socialist had the audacity to suggest we adhere to a pay-as-you-go policy because that’s the responsible thing to do. What does this man know about fiscal responsibility? From everything he’s done in his first months on the job, the answer is obvious. Nothing.
He must really believe the American people are drooling fools, willing to believe anything he says, regardless of his actions. He and his team have proven themselves to be economic illiterates and/or outright thieves. Thieves of future generations’ ability to avail themselves of the opportunity to realize the American dream. If his overly optimistic projections of returns on his spending squandering of citizens’ cash had come from a fortune cookie or a 900-number psychic, they’d likely be more realistic. He has placed a yoke across the shoulders of the American taxpayers, their children, and grandchildren that will act as an anchor as they try to eke out a living as his piles of newly printed money become worth less and less. And what have we gained?
The President claims to have “saved or created” 150,000 jobs over the same period when more than 3 million have joined the ranks of the unemployed. He recently promised to create 600,000 more “stimulus” jobs over the summer, but more and more are laid off. The President’s projected peak for the unemployment rate has already been surpassed and may yet get worse, but the MSM refuses to press Obama or his press secretary Robert Gibbs when they throw out such numbers and the administration has yet to explain exactly how they arrived at their figures.
The reality is Obama’s “stimulus” failed to stimulate the economy. His idea that frivolous government spending could create jobs proved flawed. The American people were duped into paying for the Left’s liberal agenda to socialize the American economy by the smooth-talking, teleprompter-dependent Chicago shyster and his Democratic cohorts in the House and Senate. And still he demands more.
And at the same time tells us he now wants responsibility. If you believe that, you’re probably in the market for some beach front property in Arizona.
