Before I get off on the main rant I found this in the Wall Street Journal and is very indicative of the Progressive Left and Obama and Co. in general.
Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said he would use weekend meetings of G-20 finance ministers to advance efforts to “rebalance” the world economy so it is less reliant on U.S. consumers, to move toward establishing “norms” on exchange-rate policy, and to persuade others the U.S. doesn’t aim to devalue its way to prosperity.
In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Mr. Geithner said the world sorely needs to agree on guidelines for exchange-rate policy. “Right now, there is no established sense of what’s fair,” he said.
If you won’t stop depending on the US and it’s consumers for the world economy we’ll force you. After all, we are just a bunch of greedy pigs who deserve to be downgraded because it’s only “fair”.
Devalue it’s way to prosperity?
“The rest of the world wants us to save more—and that means less U.S. demand for the rest of the world. Demand is going have to come from other sources,” Mr. Geithner said.
Gee, I thought that was at the heart of Obamanomics. 🙂
Democrats battle imaginary racist conspiracies, claim that ghostly foreign financiers oppose them and even smear one Republican with bizarre kidnapping charges. Can’t they just run on their record?
The 111th Congress fulfilled liberal Democrats’ decades-long goal of government-run health care, spent over a trillion dollars on a Keynesian stimulus that promised millions of yet-to-arrive jobs and punished Wall Street for the financial crisis with a massive new regulatory regime.
So shouldn’t running for re-election be simple?
That’s the way many pundits confidently said it would be. Before Newsweek was sold for a dollar — a fraction of the newsstand price for a single issue — its editor was claiming that Barack Obama was a “Burkean” conservative (in the mold of Edmund Burke, the 18th century British parliamentarian and scourge of the French Revolution), in tune for the long term with center-right America.
New York Times Book Review editor Sam Tanenhaus wrote a book on conservatism being dead now that “the Democrats are in charge and, in Obama, have a leader of rare political skills.”
Now, seemingly overnight, Democrats may lose their majority in the House, and in the Senate their majority leader maybe unseated.
So they’ve decided on the Hail Mary pass. Since they think Republicans are nut jobs, maybe they can convince voters of it.
Those thousands of Tea Partyers, including many women? They can’t be a true populist uprising. So the NAACP, a stalwart ally of liberal Democrats, unveils an October Surprise: a report charging that the Tea Party is chock full of “anti-Semites, racists and bigots.”
This week, House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Henry Waxman reiterated the White House’s charge — backed by zero evidence — that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce financed ads against liberal Democrats with cash from foreign corporations.
Congress invites a comedian like Stephen Colbert to testify; the president plans to tarnish his high office by appearing on Comedy Central. With no winning issues to run on, Democrats seem to have embraced the politics of the absurd. (IBD)
The report released by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (Colored people? Isn’t that a racial slur? :)) argues that Tea Party groups “have given platform to anti-Semites, racists and bigots,” and have attracted white nationalists looking for recruits.
“The Tea Party movement has unleashed a still inchoate political movement who are in their numerical majority, angry middle-class white people who believe their country, their nation, has been taken from them,” it says. (WSJ)
I have new name for the NAACP. The National Association of The American Communist Party. They sure aren’t into civil rights anymore.
They are just a partisan attack dog for the Far left Progressives in the Democratic Party. And that’s it.
So you get these little yappy attack dogs who just bark and yip about “racism” and “bigotry” the moment you disagree with them or their God.
I think I preferred “Yo quiero Taco Bell”. But even that chihuahua was fired for not selling enough Tacos.
Can we fire the NAACP for not even giving a crap about civil rights, or even civility?
But the report also points to signs at Tea Party rallies with explicitly racist or racially charged language. It notes that several black congressmen accused Tea Party supporters of shouting racial epithets at them during a rally against health care legislation on Capitol Hill in March. Mr. Jealous called on Tea Party leaders to repudiate this kind of racism, as well as ties to white supremacist groups and “birthers” within the ranks of the movement.
This was a very long time ago in politics. There was a $100,000 reward for anyone who had documented proof that this incident ever even happened. No one ever came forward. No evidence was ever presented.
Like the Far left needs evidence and facts to back up their childish over-the-top hysterical claims. Like they care.
The end justifies the means.
Morals and ethics are irrelevant.
More from the NAACP:
“We have to have particular concern about supremacy attitudes, violence, hate language, particularly when it’s rooted in notions of restoring or taking back or redeeming the country,” Barber said. “Because, in the American social-historical-political psyche, we have historical markers that tell us how dangerous this is to be given legitimacy.”
“We know in 1867 when the Ku Klux Klan, for instance, laid out its political purposes, it was about restoring and re-enfranchising, if you will.”
“And then when you go to the Reconstruction Era, you find this same attempt to spew this division, this hate language out…. ‘We need to restore America. We need to take it back.'”
Barber moved on to 1963. “When George Wallace used this language and themes of division, very vitriolic hate language,” Barber said, “Medgar Evers was killed in June of that year… We had the bombing of a church, four girls were killed at Sunday school and then we had a president assassinated.” (Washington Post)
This would be the President that if he tried to run today as a Democrat he’d be run out of the party so fast the earth’s rotation would reverse, right? 🙂
And of course, the logic errors and over generalizations and hysterical partisan Alinsky tactics in all this are very apparent but since the end justifies the means what does it matter to them.
As long as you’re stupid enough to be influenced to either stay home and not vote them out or to vote FOR them what do they care.
They are earnestly concerned that anyone who disagrees with their Messiah must be an unbeliever and must be exposed as a witch and burnt at the stake.
Sorry, that’s Christine O’Donnell. :0
‘It is evil when anyone person feels like their child is better than any other child and it’s evil when they take the money that all of have suffered to put into this community and use it for their benefit as opposed to all of our benefit,” said Rev. Kojo Nantambu, Charlotte Chapter President of the NAACP. (foxcharlotte.com)
Mind you he was talking about the School district there’s plans to close some schools (naturally only “white” schools should be closed). But I can only wish he felt the same way about the organization itself.
“Part of the reason that our politics seems so tough right now, and facts and science and argument do not seem to be winning the day all the time, is because we’re hard-wired not to always think clearly when we’re scared,” Obama told Democratic donors at a fundraiser in Massachusetts last week. “And the country is scared.”–President Obama.
Democrats are asking voters to think twice about the consequences of pointing those fingers.
Democrats appear united in warning voters against the dangers of making ballot-box choices rashly because of their discontent with the status quo.(MSNBC)
Now that they are the “status quo” and not Bush/Cheney/Rove. Remember all that anger at Bush that still exists today?
Well, that’s “good” anger.
Wanting to throw the Democrats out of power, that’s “bad” anger. 🙂
So all you “scared” “angry” “racists” out there vote on November 2 and vote bums out!
“I’m Mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore!” 🙂
