Not too Popular

No nation ever taxed itself into prosperity.
-Rush Limbaugh-

It’s too bad, that not all things “Not too Popular” would just go away like Van Jones did, and now, if only Obama would.

Now if we will remember back to 2006, when the GOP Congress was debating raising the U.S. Debt Ceiling, then Senator Barack Obama said this;

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies.

“And the cost of our debt is one of the fastest growing expenses in the Federal budget. This rising debt is a hidden domestic enemy, robbing our cities and States of critical investments in infrastructure like bridges, ports, and levees; robbing our families and our children of critical investments in education and health care reform; robbing our seniors of the retirement and health security they have counted on.

“Every dollar we pay in interest is a dollar that is not going to investment in America’s priorities. Instead, interest payments are a significant tax on all Americans–a debt tax that Washington doesn’t want to talk about. If Washington were serious about honest tax relief in this country, we would see an effort to reduce our national debt by returning to responsible fiscal policies.

“Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that “the buck stops here.” Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”

Now, this man who said that Bush failed in leadership for daring to want to raise the debt ceiling, is now calling for one himself. And, on top of all his reckless spending of OUR money, here is the clincher on this idiot. He has gotten Congress to sign another check bailout, for Fannie Mae And Freddie Mac and this one is an open check. No amount listed. When is this insane spending going to end? I say it will end when Obama loses his majority in the senate and the house….and then the attempts to spend insanely will stop when Obama is ousted from the White House in 2012. I pray that happens.

God Bless America, her troops and her people
God Bless my readers, my listeners on BTR and my viewers on You Tube….


About Robert P. Garding

I am a Reagan Conservative, who is very alarmed at the Liberals who have just lost their majority over our government, but continue to act like it never happened. They have to be stopped. NOW or even sooner.

    So, when Bush wanted to raise the debt ceiling it was a failure of leadership, but when Obama himself wants to do it it’s ok. What a hypocrite! But you’ll never hear Obama called that by the lame stream media. Only by patriotic bloggers who care about what’s happening to this country. Bloggers like you, Robert. Great post; keep up the good work.
    reply from Robert: Thank you. But the work was done by others, I just found it. In a google search of this quote, I found the whole thing in another blog. I just wrote the post around the quote. *ss* But it is revealing about the man and his politics don’t you think?

    Made my donation to Scott Brown’s campaign today. I am praying – literally – that he beats Martha Coakley and becomes that 60th seat that the jugarjackass has counted on to make sure that anything he wants passes. Sure. The GOP still won’t have a majority. But it is a start. And any little bit helps.

    The GOP had better wake up pretty dayum quick if it thinks that it can take the seats it needs down to road to stop this out of control charlatan who is currently sitting in our Nation’s highest possible office at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
    reply from Robert: The GOP and the nation had better wake up. We have been lead down the road to socialism and Marxism for so many generations now, that something has to be done to reverse this course. The last time something was done about it was when Reagan took office. And now is the time to do it again. Americans we are waiting.

    I do believe the downward sprial for Obama will continue but I was struck by a comment from another blogger which gave me pause. He said that If Obama lost his majority in Congress it could help him in the long run. He pointed out Clinton was forced to work with a Republican Majority and although he vetoed his share of bills, legislation from Republicans did advance and Clinton approved and despite his low morality and disgracing the office he still served two terms and remained popular.
    After further thought on his comment I decided that Obama is way out of “Slick Willys” league and his ego would prevent him from ever working with Republicans on anything. After one year he has burned too many bridges and froced the American public to accept his brand of politics. They don’t want it. OUT IN 2012!

    And just what would you pay our troops with, if we fail to cope with the present reality — created as it was in unprecedented times, to phrase it in a nonjudgmental way — no dealing with the two ongoing wars (among the longest in US history), a huge Wall Street meltdown and all the myriad issues we’re facing.

    I continue to deeply resent the implications by you and your readers that anyone who disgrees with your perceptions is unpatriotic. That is balderdash, and in fact, is the unAmerican viewpoint!

    reply from Robert: I am not the one who said that if someone disagrees with me, they are unpatriotic. That was YOUR president and his followers. Get your facts straight.

    As for paying our troops, they would get paid just as they always have. It is your president who wants to destroy the military and this nation. You need to look at what he is trying to do by bringing the terrorists who are in Guantanamo now, and bringing them right where they want to be… in the United States. I want to ask a question. If you were a terrorist, vowed on destroying America, wouldn’t you rejoice to be brought into a dilapidated prison inside this nation? I know they are. They can’t wait to be brought here and put in prison there so they can plan their escape and then start their attacks from within. I swear, your president has yet to do anything right, and you blame everyone else for what he is doing? You liberals are all alike. You cannot accept the blame when the blame is due you.

    As for these wars that we are in being among the longest in American history, the only reason they are as long as they are, is because the Liberals in our government are doing everything they can to undermine the war effort. Like Murtha telling everyone that our troops were raping and killing women and children in the dead of night…and not apologizing when caught with this lie, and then turning and blaming others for his stupidity. I could go on and on….but you should get the picture…..

    Octobia, this post was about the hypocrisy of Obama in condemning Bush for raising the debt ceiling yet now wanting to do the same thing himself. This post wasn’t about our troops, the wars, or anything related to that. So why did you bring it up? Was it to avoid dealing with a glaring imperfection in your Messiah?

    The truth is, Octobia, is that one of the two wars you referenced is supported by your president. Obama campaigned on the theme that Afghanistan was the necessary war. Yet, in 2006, he didn’t think that having money to pay the troops justified raising the debt ceiling. Instead, he called it–raising the debt ceiling–a failure of leadership. But now that he’s in office and wants to spend TRILLIONS we DON’T have, not on the troops but on stimulus packages and health care, suddenly raising the debt ceiling is ok. And like a good lemming you’re following right along with your idol.

    Octobia, Obama is a HYPOCRITE. That’s what this post was about. You can try to divert attention from that by whining about the wars but it won’t work. The facts reveal the ugly truth. Stop scapegoating conservatives and DEAL WITH REALITY!!!!
    reply from Robert: I couldn’t have and didn’t say it better.

    Getting very spirited conversation here. It amazes me that liberals, even those in Congress forget that after 9/11 they approved along with Republicans, actions in Afghanistan and Iraq. They also listened intently and agreed with Bush and his military advisers that this was not going to be a conventional war defined by boundaries. They also warned the American people it would be long and drawn out. The entire globe is the battlefield. Iraq and Afghanistan are the focus for now, but Yemen and Pakistan, even Iran are starting to warrant more attention. Liberals are fools believing that we can just walk away and everything will be back to normal. As we all should well know and the Bush Administration stated many times, 9/11 changed our lives and forever the way we must act in securing the well being of our nation and our citizens at home and abroad. Thank God we have a professional military with dedicated men and women serving that understand that and are willing to put their life on the line everyday to defend and protect us.
    Octobia and others like her should be thinking what we could do to pay them more for their services, not how we can afford them.
    reply from Robert: You are so right my friend. She and others who see things through that skewed eye glass that the Liberals look at the world through, only see what they want. The center of their attention where most everything is, is their health care stuff, global warming and other things that will do nothing but cost the rest of us more money than we can afford. And tonight on Glenn Beck, he said that each and every American is in debt now to the tune of over 435,000 dollars! That is not just the tax payers, that is everyone, men, women, children, babies. Everyone. Doesn’t that scare you even just a little? I know that the people who are up in arms about what Obama is doing are scared. The ones that follow him don’t know what is coming. And they would be scared if they did. But they believe their leader when he says that everything is going to be okay…..even though everything he says is a big fat lie.

    I – and many of you – tried to warn the people of what they were reaping by electing Obama (Octobia excluded, of course). The sordid associations and philosophies of this man were glaring and yet, no one would believe them.

    Now that he is actually putting his heinous agenda into practice, some people still insist that there’s no “there there”, despite the painfully obvious evidence which abounds. And perhaps the most frustrating aspect of all is the anemic response of the impotent Republicans, who should be flailing away at this travesty.

    reply from Robert: That is the thing that amazes me the most. During the last election, we Republicans *conservatives stayed quiet about this, except me and a few others* let the Democrats pretty much select our own candidate, and during the campaign, McCain was running around claiming he was the ONLY TRUE CONSERVATIVE out there….which we all knew was not true……and yet, no one said a word…..except by the ones who no one was listening too.

    We all know the Republicans now are spineless and won’t stand up to anything if there is too much opposition to their views. It is up to the “true Conservatives” out here to start taking the wheel and steering this country back in the direction that it needs to be headed. Political Correctness be damned. We need to save this country no holds barred. Great comment Woody. Thanks.
