President Obama sought today to shift blame for the bumpy economy to congressional Republicans, saying too many of them are “standing in the way” of recovery.
“Either they say they want to do nothing … or they want to double down on some of the policies that didn’t work and got us into this mess in the first place,” Obama told voters in Iowa, citing in particular proposed tax cuts for the wealthy.
Mr. President – you are the President of the United States – and that position indicates you are the leader – of the free world – but especially of this great country. When you say some entity is in your way – you prove as many of us have known since you came upon the scene – you are not Presidential – should have never been elected – etc. etc. – we could go on and on. Blame, blame, blame and divide, divide, divide – that is all you do – if you had good intentions, if you were honest about every situation, if you understood America, if you did a full day’s work – every day for the good of this nation – no one would be standing in your way – you are the President of the United States.
Republicans are standing in the way of runaway government spending of epic proportion. Can you imagine if we had a Dem congress where we would be now? We are what 16, 20 Trillion in debt and NO jobs to show for it; just lots of handouts. Republicans are the taxpayers firewall against this administration permanently damaging our economic system and way of life. We cannot spend our way to prosperity any more than the Government can create jobs. Mitt knows that
The hours after a new President is in the White House, this country can start on the road to recovery by:
1) Putting Americans to work by approving the pipeline that Obama has blocked.
2) Putting experienced and capable people into the President’s advisory panel.
3) Starting to cut Government spending and Government redundancy.
It will be an exciting time yet a challenging one, but we the people will be back in charge.
Finally a story:
A woman in a hot air balloon realizes she is lost. She lowers her altitude and spots a man fishing from a boat below. She shouts to him, Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don’t know where I am. The man replies, you are at Mystic Lake. No she says where am I? The man thinks for a second, than replies you’re in a hot air balloon, approximately 30 feet above a ground floating across Mystic lake She rolls her eyes and says you must be a Republican! I am, replies the man. How did you know? Well, answers the balloonist, I have no idea what to do with the information you have given me and I’m still lost. Frankly, you’re not much help to me. The man smiles and responds you must be a liberal Democrat. I am, replies the woman. How did you know? Well, says the man, you don’t know where you are or where you’re going. You’ve risen to where you are, due to a very large amount of hot air. You made a promise that you have no idea how to keep, and now you want and expect me to solve your problem due to your poor planning, you’re in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but, somehow, now it’s my fault.
