Did you hear Barack Obama is giving a big speech tomorrow? He’s probably going to announce that the Koch Brothers will be managing his re-election campaign, and that the working poor will pay a 35% tax on all grocery and gasoline purchases for the next year, because “we all need to chip in to lower the budget or whatever” and talent like the Koch Brothers doesn’t come cheap! Can you believe anyone on “The Left” was ever excited about this Obama fraud? We can believe it, because we heard him lie through his phony smile for two years on the campaign trail. Remember how Barry was going to end the wars, rebuild America’s infrastructure, put renewable energy and mass transit all across the country, crack down on industrial polluters, raise taxes on the super-rich, etc., etc. All lies! Everything the guy has ever said was a lie. Back when Obama was blowing Weather Underground hero Bill Ayers in Chicago, that was just part of the elaborate deception, too. Leftist street cred. Same thing with the “Oh I’m down with Jay-Z and Stevie Wonder.” Obama hates “urban music,” and always has. Guy grew up in Hawaii, listening to nothing but Jimmy Buffett and Sammy Hagar.
So, on Wednesday afternoon this guy is going to give a “big speech,” about how he’s going to dismantle the rest of the federal government — all except the Pentagon and Guantanamo and the Treasury and the Federal Reserve and the various departments dedicated to bailing out Goldman Sachs and making sure GE doesn’t have to pay any taxes.
President Obama faces a growing rebellion on the left as he courts independent voters and Republicans with his vision for reducing the nation’s debt by cutting government spending and restraining the costs of federal health insurance programs ….
“The fundamental problem in our country right now is unemployment and a jobs crisis, not a deficit crisis,” said Deepak Bhargava, executive director of the Center for Community Change, an advocacy group for the poor. “It appears the president is fighting on the wrong terrain and is conceding that the only thing we should be talking about is how to bring down the deficit.”
Yeah, great idea ignoring not only the people who elected you, but the old and the poor and the unemployed and the sick and basically anyone who very much needs help in the third year of the Hellish Recession. GREAT JOB BARRY, you are truly the New Reagan.
Except you aren’t, because Reagan was both popular and white, and you squandered the first and will never be the second. Republicans will never love you. They don’t even think you’re an American!
Enjoy the private golf courses and million-dollar speaking fees, Obama. That’s all you’ll have, when this is all over. And that’s probably all you ever cared about. After all, according to your autobiography, your first job was on Wall Street. [Kaplan Washington Post]
