But they (wishes) are not (fishes) and those nasty and hateful TEABAGGERS pulled the plug on the pond. Shucks, seems like a feller just can’t have any fun any more. Well, President Obama, it hasn’t been any fun out here for Americans for a very long time. Now, you can keep going back to the well and dredging up the specter of the Bush administration all you want. Goodness knows I’ve taken him and his Republican Congress on often enough. In many ways his failure to stand up to the runaway spending in his own government set the stage for the recession we began experiencing in 2008.
Bush had recognized the danger represented by the various manifestations of the Community Reinvestment Act of 1977, which essentially lowered standards for mortgage lending. Subsequent efforts by Democrats resulted in lowering the bar even farther, setting up the sub-prime disasters we’re now familiar with. A stronger George Bush, in control of a Republican majority in both House and Senate, might have taken on the Democrats over the financial time bomb he knew was ticking away. But as usual he and the Republicans allowed the left to control the message.
I’d love to understand why the Republicans allowed the left to turn the message on them starting back with the Civil Rights Movement. It’s as if they were afraid to stand up to the left and answer their lies and charges for what they were. Barack Obama has certainly gotten a lot of mileage (so he thinks) out of George Bush. The problem with that is the same as the other reasons Obama’s pond has gone dry. We were looking for the post-modern CENTRIST he portrayed himself as. What we got was the prancing pony sprinting as hard and fast to the left as he could with a smorgasbord of hard core leftists right behind him.
He quickly outlined his Socialist Menu for this country, which he hoped would be enabled by the economic chaos created by the SUB-PRIME MORTGAGE CRISIS, a crisis you may recall which was engendered largely by Democrat policy and irresponsibility. Obama did everything in his and the Democrat Congress’s power to force his Marxian policies on the American people, who were initially in panic mode and were definitely slow on the uptake. Remember Rahm Emanuel, “Never let a crisis go to waste”?
Fortunately for us God, America’s love of freedom, the Patriot Movement, the Internet, and Conservative broadcasting changed all that. Obama’s attempted takeover and eventual enslavement of the American people backfired. Now there is much talk of bi-partisan this and bi-partisan that, when in January the Democrats, in their overweening arrogance, were changing the locks on the House Conference rooms locking out Republican Representatives. What a difference a couple of months makes!
Put in plain old fashioned language…these Democrat cretins are headed for a butt kicking next November of historic proportions. It’s all because of you, my fellow patriots. There is not a single reason for Republicans to accommodate or make ‘deals’ with this administration. They have not changed. They are still bent on the destruction of our way of life, and so far they’ve done a pretty damned good job of it. They will not change. Remember the snake in the high grass? He’s still there…and he still bites…
