I didn't watch Obama's job speech. He has already revealed his hand and anything he has to say is going to be nothing but a way to shift more money to his campaign through the union money laundering system already set up, already tested via the last stimulus package that was supposed to keep unemployment from reaching 8%. All of that money went to support corporations who employ union labor and to make payroll checks to public employees who are members of a union. The money just makes a U-turn at the union and fills his coffers. Even an Eric Holder Justice Department could trace that fraud.
The Republicans were simply asked to contribute to Obama's re-election campaign. Will they do it? That's the only legitimate question to be asked. Will they take our with holdings and give it to him to run his silly game? Were these same methods not tried with a trillion dollars of debt earlier in his presidency one might give him the benefit of the doubt, but trying to fool us twice should be a lot harder than that.
But that only brings us to the crux of the problem. Will the Republicans acquiesce? Will they find some politically motivated calculation that allows them to spend our money in such an obviously ridiculous manner?
Now is the time to hammer your representative. Let Obama cry that his jobs bill didn't pass and that's why things didn't get better. A debate would be a great time to bring up the stimulus and ask him where all of that money went. Let him defend the first stimulus, instead of allowing him to point his finger of blame. The fact is, if this bill is never brought up, or fails to pass it will probably work the benefit of the Republicans because our credit rating might be improved if they prove themselves fiscally responsible enough to say no.
Our debt is a world-wide game. Our credit is a factor of our willingness to embrace reality. Obama is clearly not capable of understanding that his pronouncements are not enough to convince those we owe money to that we are going to change our stripes. I knew that simply passing a debt limit increase would make no difference, even though Obama promised that it would. An objective observer, like China, recognizes the corruption running rampant through the Obama Administration, they understand the game better than he does and they see that we are willing to borrow more money from them to support his campaign. Any Republican who agrees to this nonsense should be facing a primary challenge.
I don't pretend to know what goes through the mind of a politician and I hope I never get that sort of insight, but I do know that I have been betrayed by both parties at every turn. I have watched billions pour into unions until they are strong enough to try to attack the American public who refuse to agree with them. They have called for an actual conflict to teach us all a lesson, a good old-fashioned union beat down is what they have in mind.
When one thinks about it, Obama really didn't ask for that much did he? All he wants is for us to pay the people who are willing to smash our heads to get their way. Just a little thing. And for what? A promise that things will get better. Sounds like a smashing good deal.
