Over the last few days the Democrats plan for dealing with the $14,300,000,000,000 debt of this country can be summed up in 3 words:
BLAME THE REPUBLICANS!
That’s it. That’s all they want or need.
Nothing else matters as they want you to blame the Republicans in the most hyper-partisan act in American History in 150 years.
It’s the Perfect POLITICAL solution.
I didn’t say anything about economic solutions because neither are the Democrats.
The Republicans propose a plan (3 now) and the democrats just demagogue it into the ground and refuse to even vote on it.
Hell, they haven’t even passed their own budget (in the Senate) in 819 days!
Why do they need to commit to anything. They just demagogue whatever the Republican put up and the Ministry of Truth Media demagogues it to death and you buy the bullshit! It’s a perfect solution.
So what if it cause a depression that destroy the country for generations and possible crashes the world’s economy…like they care. As long as they win…who cares!
So what if this depression crushes the very people they are allegedly “protecting” in their demagoguery…The poor. Like they actually care.
If they can get the very people who are hurt by them to blame the other guy and flock to them and suckle at the government tits so much the better! It’s what they wanted all along. It’s a win-win for them.
As long as they aren’t to blame what does it matter how ugly it gets. And they calculate that they will win politically in 2012 from it. Political Capital is the only capitalism that Democrats believe in.
So where’s the downside for them??
Class Warfare. Demagoguery. Fearmongering. Dishonesty. It’s all Good.
The country can go completely to hell because that is irrelevant compared to the potential political gains they feel they will receive and are entitled to.
And the In-The-Tank Liberal Media will cheerleading them all the way.
The Republicans keep proposing plan after plan and the Democrats just turn their noses up at it like a 4 year old who’s told to eat their peas. 🙂
The Democrats just spread fear, intimidation, threats, and class warfare.
Divide and Conquer.
But as long as the Republicans are blamed for it that’s all that really matters in the end because then the Democrats can sweep into power in 2012 and really have no opposition to their Socialist Utopian vision. And that is the ultimate goal.
People so dependent on the Government that they have no choice but to keep the Democrats in power for generations and the longer and deeper it becomes the harder and harder it will be to pry them out of power and eventually it may even come to a point where people would wonder why you’d want to in the first place.
The Democrats dreams come true.
So why would they bother with an actual plan to fix the actual problem? They don’t need one, so why would they agree to one?
But they key is, they have to keep the blame on the Republicans.
And the Republican have to keep acting like the school nerds who is constantly getting beat up by the school bully.
That’s they key.
So the question then becomes, are you that easy to manipulate?
I think so.
In a series of phone calls, administration officials have told bankers that the administration will not allow a default to happen even if the debt cap isn’t raised by the August 2 date Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner says the government will run out of money to pay all its bills, including obligations to bond holders. Geithner made the rounds on the Sunday talk shows saying a default is imminent if the debt ceiling isn’t raised, and President Obama issued a similar warning during a Friday press conference after budget negotiations with House Republicans broke down.
A senior banking official told FOX Business that administration officials have provided guidance to them that even though a default is off the table, a downgrade “is a real possibility for no other reason than S&P and Moody’s have to cover (themselves) since they’ve been speaking out on the debt cap so much.”
This guidance is a big reason why Wall Street has largely dismissed the possibility of default, and though the markets have been jittery amid the talk of default, they haven’t imploded as would be the case, many economists fear, if the nation missed a payment on its debt.
Obama has offered nothing, instead just attacking, attacking, attacking, blaming everyone but himself in utter denial of the reality that no man on the face of this Earth is more responsible for our debt catastrophe than he.
Leadership anyone? anyone?
Sorry, all we have is a Community Organizer who only understands threats and intimidation not Leadership. And even since the days of Senator Obama when he voted “present” more often than he ever voted at all, he doesn’t like to take a stand for anything that isn’t beneficial to him personally. So that’s why we get nothing but campaign speeches from him.
He isn’t going to lead the nation. He is just going to lead himself to re-election. That’s all that matters to him.
So what if the nation goes down the toilet, as long as he get re-elected, and re-elected with a Democrat majority he’s good.
This president who now tells us we must raise taxes to save the Republic is the same president who just seven months ago was telling us that everyone agrees the worst thing one could do during a crisis is raise taxes. Republicans agreed then and hold to that position now. That makes them unreasonable, unbalanced.
And where did this sudden spurt of media fiscal discipline come from, anyway? Where were they when America needed someone to ask Obama, Pelosi and Reid how they were going to pay for TARP? Where were the media demanding to know where the trillion bucks for the anti-stimulus program was coming from? How about the trillion for Obamacare?
They went along for the ride on all these budget-busting disasters. And now they have the temerity to lecture us on fiscal discipline?
There is the oblivious. Some journalists refuse to acknowledge that spending has soared under Obama. When Grover Norquist factually noted Obama’s binge, CNN anchor Ali Velshi erupted in protest. “Wait a minute! ‘He created with his spending’? You didn’t just suggest that our budget problem is because of President Obama, did you, Grover?” Norquist said yes, he wasn’t kidding. Velshi dismissed this concept as unreasonable: “OK, we’re going to pass by that question because that’s an unreasonable position.”
In round numbers: In fewer than four years, Obama has increased the debt by $4 trillion. He proposes we raise it another $2.3 trillion. This makes Obama responsible for almost half the debt of the United States. But it is “unreasonable” to say so.
The leftist news media aren’t coming to this debate to be an honest broker. They’re just trying to break one side apart, and never mind that it’s their vision that is driving us right over a cliff. (Brent Bozell)
As long as The Democrats and The Liberals win the Political battle nothing else matters to them.
After all, what will be left will be solely dependent on them and what better outcome for them could their possibly be?
