As you know, profanity and anger spill over in a House Democrat caucus meeting. Here’s Howard Fineman last night on Countdown talking about it. There was one guy out there, “F’ the president! F’ the president!” All these people, the Democrats were saying this.
I love that headline, but if you bear with me, you will see what I mean when I say it. All I have to do is get some quotes from some of them and you will see it:
FINEMAN: It was pretty startling. There was sotto voce, apparently, you know, not too loud, an “F’ the president,” there was a “No F-ing way.” There was a “He F’d it up.” There was a lot of anger. And, frankly, the president’s appearance before this same group of people yesterday, when he tried to explain his side of things, didn’t help. As a matter of fact, it just made things worse. They lost the election in many cases because they championed the previous position the president took. Now they’re being asked to abandon it. They’re angry. They feel ignored, which they were.
Jim Moran of Virginia, said this, “This is a lack of leadership on the part of Obama. I don’t know where the F Obama is on this or anything else. They’re AWOL.” Here, Moran was talking about Obama’s lack of leadership at Gitmo as well as the tax deal. Remember, Gitmo’s not closed yet.
The bad part about what is going on in Washington, and the Democrats is this. No matter how much they are told about this, the tax thing that they are haggling about is NOT TAX Cuts. They know this, yet they have decided that it is the terminology that they are going to use, hoping the people fall for it. But as long as they are using this lie, I will be out here telling them and everyone else that I can, that these are NOT TAX CUTS. All Obama and the democrats are doing, is trying to find a way to blame the Republicans for the lack of stimulation that is going to be coming because of this. The stimulation that was caused by the tax cuts that are about to expire happened seven years ago. Extending them, so the tax rate stays the same isn’t going to stimulate anything. Jonah Goldberg, has a post at The Corner, where he says this about the tax rate plan.
“How does maintaining the status quo (and raising the estate tax from its current level) pump new money into the economy?” In this, he is right. It doesn’t pump anything into the economy. Especially not a stimulus!
And yes my friends, Obama is making this his NEXT stimulus package, but only because of all the pork and crap that they are adding to it. PORK YOU SAY? Yes. Here is some of it.
We’ve now got unemployment extension for 13 months, which makes it now 155 weeks. Just under three years. To put it in a way that some of you would understand, if you got unemployment today, and you had a baby born today, that baby would almost be three before your unemployment ended. Now, it is an absolute fact that unemployment has cost $320 billion over the last three years. Even the liberal news media had to report that.
They are adding ethanol subsidies to it too. Now let me ask you a question. If Ethanol was such a great thing, would it really need subsidies? Actually, no it wouldn’t, because the free enterprise system would take over and it would be in the works that way, with NO MONEY FROM THE GOVERNMENT!
President Obama was singing a different tune, telling NPR: ‘My sense is there are going to be discussions between both House and Senate leadership about all the final elements of the package. Keep in mind we didn’t actually write a bill.‘” So that is how things are done in the Obama white house huh?????
People, we are being played for the fool. And the problem is, the Republican party in Washington now, are playing right along with it. We have to hope that when the New House takes over, the new comers will keep their lack of a sense of humor and push what they were voted in there for. Because the powers that be in Washington now have not listened to the message that the people shouted out on November 2nd. I think they need to be reminded. Don’t you?
May God bless our efforts to help get America back, and put God back into our country.
God, Bless America. Bless Americans.
