IS THE O-MAN DELUSIONAL, DISHONEST OR BOTH?
The really scary part is, O actually believes his own campaign rhetoric. I mean, think about it; Barack Hussein Obama is without a doubt the most partisan president of our lifetime; although, I’m interested in hearing of other nominees from the loons. (Translation: “W” of course.) Truth be told, O’s never stopped campaigning – from the moment he decided to run for public office to this morning’s radio address; the O-man engages in the politics of division whenever his mouth is moving. Hell – a growing number of influential Democrats don’t even want to be seen in the same zip code with this guy anymore. (At least six superdelegates have announced they will boycott the Democratic Convention and refuse to nominate their standard-bearer.)
On cue, during his weekly radio address, O trotted out the same old tired blame-game drivel. Here are a few lowlights:
Over the past three years, we’ve been clawing our way back from the worst economic crisis of our lifetimes. And we know it will take longer than any of us would like to fully recover all the jobs and savings that have been lost. (Um, didn’t he tell us that if he hadn’t improved economic conditions and the job market by the end of his third year in office, he would be a one-term president?)
For months, I’ve been pushing Congress to help us along by passing common-sense policies that would make a difference. But Congress has refused to act on most of the other ideas in my jobs plan that economists say could put a million more Americans back to work. (“Common-sense policies” – in the mind of the boy king – are centered around two basic principles: tax, borrow and spend, and redistribution of wealth.)
There’s no excuse for inaction. Right now, we are seven days away from thousands of American workers having to walk off the job because Congress hasn’t passed a transportation bill. We are eight days away from nearly seven and a half million students seeing their loan rates double because Congress hasn’t acted to stop it. (Translation: “I didn’t do it mommy; John Boehner did it!”)
My Administration is doing its part. On Friday, Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood announced $500 million in competitive grants for states and communities that will create construction jobs on projects like road repair and port renovation. And that’s an important step, but we can’t do it all on our own. (Hell, O; you’ve circumvented Congress and ignored the Constitution everywhere else you’ve thought you could get away with it, why not give it a shot here?)
Now, it’s up to the House to follow suit; to put aside partisan posturing, end the gridlock, and do what’s right for the American people. (Translation: “I’m completely delusional; whenever the House doesn’t pass MY bills, THEY’RE wrong. I’m doin’ my part; all of this partisan posturing is the HOUSE’S fault!”)
It’s not lost on any of us that this is an election year. But we’ve got responsibilities that are bigger than an election. And let’s tell Congress to do their job. (“It’s not lost on any of us that this is an election year”? O – every year is an election year for you, dude; you haven’t stopped campaigning for six years.)
Mr. “I’m gonna reach across the aisle and end the politics of division” is a trip. The hell of it is, he believes himself.
Delusion: a false belief strongly held in spite of invalidating evidence.
