It’s apparent from President Obama’s weekly radio address (taped this week in Italy) that he does not see the same things as the majority of American’s see.
We see unemployment at a near record high and those who believed in Obama (according to every poll) losing their confidence. He sees a recovery act that is taking the country “in the right direction.”
His most astounding statement however was this:
“I realize that when we passed this Recovery Act, there were those who felt that doing nothing was somehow an answer. Today, some of those same critics are already judging the effort a failure although they have yet to offer a plausible alternative.”
Two more Obama lies — blatant lies — in a two sentence quote. NO ONE with any credibility whatsoever has ever said that “doing nothing” was an answer to the economic problems and the most obvious approach to resolving the crisis HAS been suggested hundreds of times; i.e., give businesses incentives to grow and hire by cutting corporate taxes and easing some of the regulation.
But what does Obama do? He starts a new WPA (Works Progress Administration); sure he’s created a bunch of new jobs, but they’re all government jobs being paid for by our much overworked and now practically worthless tax dollars. That’s not boosting the economy — that’s growing the government and in Obama’s reality that’s all that matters and the only thing that works.
Then, as a topper, in Obama’s ‘Alternate Reality’ he grabs hold of the thoroughly disenfranchised “global warming” theory (see John Stossel’s article: “The Global Warming Myth?”) and pushes forward an ADDITIONAL TAX on the economy — the “Cap and Trade” (or as his critics have correctly named it, the ‘Cap and Tax’) Legislation (see: the Washington Post article, “Cap-and-Trade: All Cost, No Benefit”).
President Obama and his lap dogs in the Congress are putting the U.S. Economy into a hopeless downward spiral; creating new legislation that will obviously make it worse; guaranteeing, through ‘cap and trade,’ that the United States will loose millions more jobs when employers have no choice but to move their operations to countries that are more friendly to business; and then he asks for “more time to allow it all to work.”
Perhaps “Alternate Reality” is not the right name for it — perhaps Obama missed the “sign post” that warned him he was entering the “Twilight Zone.”
