Sometime between 2008 and today, President Barack Obama lost the future.
He rose to high office on a gust of hope and change, but despite the future-oriented marketing has proved himself devoted to old pieties and existing governmental structures. At this rate, he’ll be remembered as the last president of the 20th century.
-Rich Lowry- in the Hendricks County Flyer.
Oh the words! I was reading a newspaper in Hendricks county today, and the column I found was titled, “The last president of the 20th century?”
And in this column, Rich Lowry had it right. He continued on:
His economic policy has been a reprise of the best economic thinking circa 1932. It’s been all Keynesian stimulus, and the soggy results are all around us. With the economy still weak and unemployment still high, he’s checkmated by his own stale orthodoxy. He’s unable to advance any significant proposals that wouldn’t simply be more of the same and politically unacceptable in this era of anxiety over the debt. A debt that has grown almost as much as the total debt was, under George W. Bush by the way.
In his misplaced faith in the “shovel ready” project, he must have had visions of the Hoover Dam and the interstate highway system —those jewels of 20th century American infrastructure, built relatively rapidly before the regulatory state had tied itself in knots — rising up from his stimulus. Instead, the stimulus has built little or nothing anyone will remember.
Obama’s health care program is radical in its sweep, but distinctly mid 20th century in it’s orientation. An enormous part of it simply depends on the expansion of Medicaid, the pride of 1965. In the first blush of the great society, Medicaid might have seemed a glorious innovation. Now, it’s results are so poor that some studies show that the health outcomes for people on Medicaid aren’t any better than those without any insurance at all.
As the baby boomers retire, *something that I mentioned in my last post here* the twentieth century entitlement state is under increasing strain. Paul Ryan proposes transforming Medicare to harness the power of the market and rein in the program’s costs over time. Obama proposes a bureaucratic board to dictate its future in command and control fashion out of World War II……..
……..Obama’s political strategy is based on savaging the Republicans who dare challenge this status quo that Obama is fighting so hard to retain.
Don’t you see what is going on here folks? Obama wants to bankrupt the United States in such a way that he will be our last president.
Now, the article that I have quoted from came from the premise that this president could be the last president of the 20th century. But the twentieth century is over. We are in the twenty first century, and I really think that Obama wants to be our LAST president. He wants to be the last leader this nation will ever need. And if that means, destroying this nation so that could happen, so be it. He cares nothing for this nation folks.
Get that idea through your heads because this is not meant to be a scare tactic, like Obama is doing. This is something that if you would look at what he is doing, you would see it. We are in trouble folks. It’s time to start looking to November to work on getting him and all others who believe as he does, out of office……FOR GOOD. We cannot allow anyone else of his ilk to get into power again. For the sake of Americans. For the sake of our nation. It IS that imperative. Thanks Rich Lowry for the article that brought this post into existence.
May God bless our efforts to help get America back, and put God back into our country.
God, Bless America. Bless Americans. And Bless us to start using more common sense.
