The Gross Domestic Product (GDP), since Obama has taken the helm as our president has gone down 6.1%, and yet the media is totally ignoring this, in place of praising everything that Obama is doing. Saying that he is the best president that we have ever had. Uhmmmmmm. Let me get this straight here…..
When Bush was still in the White House, and the economy was slowing down, yet still growing, the media hit on that fact every single day. Several times a day in fact. But where are they now? I can tell you in five words. They are protecting the President! That is what they are doing!
But my friends, we have such a great opportunity here if we would just take it by the tail and start using it. And on Rush Limbaugh today, he said it exactly right:
This press conference last night, again, there was not a single question about the shrinking gross domestic product, or shrinking economy. Not a single question about this massive debt that’s being piled up for generations. Not a single question about the outrageous budget that was just passed by Congress. Not a single question about nationalized health care plans. This is such an opportunity, such an opportunity for an articulate, attractive conservative candidate to take Obama and the liberal media apart. This is not the time for a conservative Republican to think, “Okay, I gotta go be a little like Obama in order to get votes.” That’s not how he’s getting them. He’s not getting votes, he’s not getting the majority of his support from policy.
He’s getting the majority of his support from personality, celebrity, cult-like characteristics, but not from policy. The biggest mistake the Republicans could make is to look at this and say, “I guess we need to come out with our own version of a national health care plan, just a smarter one. I guess we need to come out with our own version of bigger government.” No! It’s just the opposite. Never, ever has there been a better time to contrast the views of the founding principles of conservatism with what is happening now. There is such a hunger. Do you know yesterday Obama went out there to that town hall in Arnold, Missouri, Fox High School? Did you know that there were hundreds of protesters outside? There were. I didn’t know it, either, ’til I got a newspaper story about it.
Hundreds of protesters outside! There is a hunger for an alternative way to manage this country’s affairs. I think — I really do — the way I look at this, Obama is extremely vulnerable to a full-fledged conservative attack right now. The public hates the media, for good reason. Last night’s press conference being just the latest example. His policies are not all that supported. His policies are radical. His policies aren’t gonna work. That press conference last night, it was a worthless exercise in inside-the-Beltway game playing. The public learned nothing, but they swooned. They swooned and they felt good, but they didn’t learn anything. But our side should have. Our side should have been uplifted by the fact that he’s getting weaker in terms of policy, and he’s vulnerable.
You know, the Democrats have no excuse now, what with the Specter defection — I mean, people are saying this, but it’s not just a cliche. They own it all. There’s not one thing Republicans can do to stop this. Therefore, it makes no sense to go along with it. It’s not going to help Republicans electorally to go along with this. The thing that’s going to help Republicans electorally is to oppose this — and there’s nothing to lose, because they can’t stop it anyway! It’s such an opportunity for full-fledged, fearless honesty about all this. Look, folks, the purpose of last night — the purpose of all media reporting and Obama press events, the purpose — is to demoralize us. I don’t want this happening to you. I know it is. You watch this, you get demoralized.
You watch the press, and they just act like a bunch of spoiled children. It demoralizes you. That’s what they want to happen. When the Democrats are out there saying, “You know, you Republicans need to become more like us,” they want to demoralize you. They want to build Obama up. That’s a given. But the media didn’t ask him any tough questions that would have exposed the failure of his policies and the worsening economy. It shrank by 6.1%, for crying out loud. Not a word about that, because the media knows he is vulnerable, folks — and they’re protecting him, and they’re trying to demoralize us. Any other president presiding over a 6.1% drop in the GDP would have been roasted with questions about it!
He’s had policies to stop it. He’s had policies to fix it. He said his policies are going to reverse it. Any other president and the questions would have been asked, “Well, where’s the stimulus bill, Mr. President? Where’s all this investment that you’re making? Where are these new bridges and roads being built? Where’s all the infrastructure? Where’s it happening? Where are all the new jobs?” None of that is being asked. We don’t have to buy into this sophistry and idolatry. We need to hammer this. Obama’s now exposed, folks, with policies that do not work and will not work, and will only provide and cause harm. “What about your massive deficit, Mr. President? What about double-digit unemployment in over a hundred American cities?”
We had that story yesterday. One hundred nine metro areas have double-digit employment. El Centro, California, 25% unemployment, rivaling Great Depression unemployment numbers. “What about an economy, Mr. President, that just shrunk on your watch by 6.1%? What about the trillions that have been lost in the stock market, Mr. President, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera?” If the media isn’t going to ask these questions, it is time for somebody in the Republican Party — outside of the media, talk radio or whatever — to stand up and start asking these questions, boldly. And don’t give us the excuse, “Well, I can do it but nobody will cover me.” You will be heard. If the media is not going to ask these questions, somebody has to — and I’m talking about from the political arena.
It’s just… My gosh, folks, it’s such an opportunity. It’s sitting there on a silver platter again. Just because the media celebrates doesn’t mean that we have to. The question of the first 100 days was all in the context of, “Gee, how’s Obama doing? How’s Obama doing in his first hundred days?” “That’s right, Mr. Limbaugh! That’s on everybody’s mind. That’s all America wants to know: How is President Obama doing his first hundred days.” Sorry. President Obama’s first hundred days are not about him. President Obama’s first hundred days, as are any president’s first hundred days, are about America. The question is: How is America doing during Obama’s first 100 days?
And my friends, that is a really great question too. How is America doing during Obama’s first 100 days? If you look at what is really happening it isn’t doing well at all. Like was mentioned at the start of this article, the GDP has gone down 6.1% since he went into office, and yet, no one seems to be concentrating on this huge fact. My friends, 6.1% of the national budget is not a drop in the bucket. NO wonder the concentration on our economy is how bad it is. And Obama is not giving us anything to let us feel it will be getting better anytime soon. As a matter of fact, he seems to be doing everything that he can to make sure that it doesn’t get better. Now when it comes to what he actually wants to do, then his policies are not a failure. He has gotten just what he wanted, and what he told us he would do when he was campaigning. Yes my friends, he told us over and over what he was going to do. He wanted the economy to tank. It has tanked. He says that he is doing what he can, to make it come back up, yet nothing he is doing makes that possible. The spending of trillions of dollars when the money doesn’t exist won’t do it. We need to hammer this. Obama’s now exposed. We need to start asking those questions, and keep asking, not letting anyone forget. We need to ask, ‘where’s the stimulus bill, Mr. President? Where’s all this investment that you’re making? Where are these new bridges and roads being built? Where’s all the infrastructure? Where’s it happening? Where are all the new jobs? What about your massive deficit, Mr. President? What about double-digit unemployment in over a hundred American cities?
And even with the deficit that Obama helped to shape, he is now disowning it, and we cannot let him get away with this. On the site Comcast News, is an article about that. Go to the link above, if it works, and read it. Very interesting…..to say the least.
“That wasn’t me,” President Barack Obama said on his 100th day in office, disclaiming responsibility for the huge budget deficit waiting for him on Day One.
It actually was him – and the other Democrats controlling Congress the previous two years – who shaped a budget so out of balance.
And as a presidential candidate and president-elect, he backed the twilight Bush-era stimulus plan that made the deficit deeper, all before he took over and promoted spending plans that have made it much deeper still.
So my friends…..what are we gonna do? Sit back and allow him to destroy this nation without any resistance….or are we going to hammer him with what he is doing to this nation. I say HAMMER HIM…..HAMMER HIM HARD! Because he only want role responsibility, not moral responsibility. And he is not playing out his role responsibility very well. Being Wishy Washy does not make it.
God Bless America and her troops
