Still Doubting?

March 4, 2009

In case you’re still doubting that Obama’s Washingont style is different than his “Chicago” style talked about yesterday,
(“That was Chicago politics,” said John Kass, a veteran Chicago Tribune columnist. “Knock out your opposition, challenge their petitions, destroy your enemy, right? It is how Barack Obama destroyed his enemies back in 1996 that conflicts with his message today. He may have gotten his start registering thousands of voters. But in that first race, he made sure voters had just one choice.” ) check out this scoop from Jonathan Martin over at the Politico.
From the story:
“Top Democrats believe they have struck political gold by depicting Rush Limbaugh as the new face of the Republican Party, a full-scale effort first hatched by some of the most familiar names in politics and now being guided in part from inside the White House.”….Martin continues: “The strategy took shape after Democratic strategists Stanley Greenberg and James Carville included Limbaugh’s name in an October poll and learned their longtime tormentor was deeply unpopular with many Americans, especially younger voters.”……”Soon it clicked: Democrats realized they could roll out a new GOP bogeyman for the post-Bush era by turning to an old one in Limbaugh, a polarizing figure since he rose to prominence in the 1990s.”

Must Have Detraction

And so the die are cast.

Rather than explain the billions upon billions of earmarks that Obama is getting ready to sign into law, the White House just shrugs it off as “last year’s business”.

Rather than explain that the “stimulus” bill includes new, permanent and unfunded federal mandates to the states on unemployment benefits, the White House paints those governors as just grumpy old Republicans. (Yet at least two Democrat governors Brad Henry of Oklahoma, and Phil Bredesen of Tennessee are expressing mis-givings as well, and I don’t expect it to stop there. The “push-back” is gaining so much support that good ol’ Chuckie, “the people really don’t care about the pork” Schumer is pushing for ANOTHER bill that would force an all or nothing on states regarding the stimulus money. Now THAT’s “bi-partisan”.)

Rather than address the heart of the economic crisis, the banking problem, first, the White House uses this crisis to attempt to steam roll health, education, and climate legislation before any dissent can even be heard.

Rather than realize the truth, that “main street” has trillions invested in the “wall street” problem, the White House paints them all as fat cat bogeyman and the Democrats are the only ones who care about the “little people”.

This term is starting to make Bernie Madoff look like an amateur. The message to date is nothing but: “Don’t pay any attention to facts or get side-tracked by dissent, just “trust” us. After all, we’re the government now and we’re going to tell you what’s best for you.”

What’s that age wise phrase that scares the hell out of any thinking person?: “Hi, I’m from the government and I’m here to help.”

The problem is that after forty years of political correctness and indoctrination by the public schools and the Democratic party press corps, millions of Americans are now so stupid and so lazy, they actually believe that government IS the answer.

And again for my distractors who feel I’m “just not giving the great one a chance”,

Senator Evan Bayh, yes, Indiana DEMOCRATIC Senator writes in the Wall Street Journal today for the Senate to vote NO on the spending bill and if that doesn’t happen calls upon Obama to VETO said bill. To the Honorable Mr. Bayh, it is not “last year’s business” it is borrowed, wasteful spending. Now THAT, Mr. President is true “bi-partisanship”, country and fiscal integrity above partisan political agenda:
Just Say NO

Manu Raju reports on a group of Senate DEMOCRATS getting uneasy abouth Obama’s federal take over:
At Least SOME Dems With Sense

Even that venerable liberal Ms. Maureen Dowd of none other than The New York Times comments on how hollow team Obama sounds on the whole earmark fiasco:
Stage of Fools

So which are we to believe Mr. President? Your rhetoric or reality? Millions voted you in on your rhetoric, will the sun shine on your reality just long enough to bring reason back to the table or are the twenty somethings and those younger relegated to the “lost generation” label, buried under a mountain of debt and federal control of their daily lives for decades to come?
