An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Archive for 19 June 2010
President Barack Obama on Saturday pinned blame on Republicans for making life harder for the unemployed and for those who could lose their jobs without new federal intervention. He did so even as he sought to distance himself from the “dreary and familiar politics” of Washington.
Capping a week in which the administration scored a victory — a $20 billion fund to be paid by BP for those hurt by the Gulf of Mexico oil spill — Obama reserved his radio and Internet address to focus on the work that didn’t get done.
His main concern was the rejection of a bill in the Senate that would have provided more money for the long-term unemployed, aid for strapped state governments and the renewal of popular tax breaks for businesses and individuals.
For the love of all that’s holy, is he freakin’ serious??????? Does this man/child know nothing about economy? Oh, wait. Stupid question. Of course he doesn’t! If he did, he’d stop blaming everyone else for his own BS agenda and the failures it’s brought! No, the crapulous is NOT working. No, raising taxes will not solve economic problems. And OH HELL NO, the government is NOT the answer!
“If this obstruction continues, unemployed Americans will see their benefits stop,” Obama said. “Teachers and firefighters will lose their jobs. Families will pay more for their first home. All we ask for is a simple up or down vote. That’s what the American people deserve.”
What the American people deserve is a POTUS with a clue! Knock it off with the ‘teachers and firefighters’ excrement. No one is buying into it anymore.
“We have an obligation to care for the next generation,” Obama said. “So I hope that when Congress returns next week, they do so with a greater spirit of compromise and cooperation. America will be watching.”
Great Aunt Rosie’s bloomers! No! No compromise! No more spending! No more hand outs! No more! NO MORE! I use to find his ignorance, and inability to use common sense, a smidge amusing, in demented sort of way. Now? I don’t find anything about that kid amusing! I find him extremely dangerous.
