Obama built this
To win the election Obama became small and petty. He has made the US Presidency smaller for his rhetoric and divisive politics. Many of you may not understand this but, I really feel sorry for the people who were targeted by Obama because they are the ones who will suffer most under this administration. From MOTUS
As the final tally indicates, Romney was correct all along: 47% of the country will never vote the non-Democratic ticket: most minorities, youth, union members and anybody else who wants free stuff. Together they form a coalition of the aggrieved and entitled and as such they will, in the words of Robert Heinlein ) “always vote (their) own self-interest as he sees it…which for the majority translates as ‘Bread and Circuses.’”
The unions won with their backing of Obama but, the small contractors and shops did not. The city I live in is very diverse, many of our contracting businesses are owned and operated by Black, Hispanic and female business persons. With the new federal mandates these struggling businesses are not allowed to bid on any government (federally subsidized) contracts. The consequences are huge for them. We watch as our local crews lay idle and union crews are brought in from IL and other states to build our infrastructure (streets, bridges, and buildings). But, they’re not finished, unions are now demanding that all residential work be done by unionized contractors. Obama’s EPA has made it so expensive to do any type of work in the trades, the costs are becoming prohibitive to the small and midsize companies. The layers of bureaucracy have become like a maze and the new requirements so onerous they help the bigger unionized businesses. If they voted for Obama, they voted for their demise.
Roads, rail and airports all cry out for investment and improvement. But as long as money is thrown at failing industries – such as in the car industry bail-out that helped Mr Obama win Ohio and Michigan this week – the administration cannot afford to take big strategic decisions such as these.
Just in case the union workers felt Obama would safeguard their jobs, it’s not true.
announced a major restructuring of its defense division on
Wednesday that will cut 30 percent of management jobs from 2010 levels, close
facilities in California and consolidate several business units to cut costs
Rival Lockheed Martin has reduced its management ranks by about 25 percent in recent years after announcing a voluntary buyout.
Boeing said it would also expand its efforts to cut supply-chain costs by working closely with its suppliers, but did not provide details.
If Boeing is closing its facilities in CA, then those union jobs go with it. Congratulations to all of you union guys who voted for Obama and are now without a job.
Even the Daily Mail agrees with us on the media hype about Obama and the entitlement society he has been creating with the help of Democrats in Congress. It’s the only way he could win re-election by dividing the nation with “fear and loathing”.
Mitt Romney was right about one thing. He was secretly taped back in May telling fund-raisers that half the country would support Barack Obama because they depend on the government for all or part of their income.
Romney correctly identified America’s burgeoning entitlement culture as a major obstacle to a Republican winning back the White House…….[snip]
Romney wasn’t just taking on the President, he was battling a hostile mainstream media every bit as biased in favour of Obama as the BBC is towards Labour. Of course, the BBC loves Obama, too. And plenty of British commentators suspend their critical faculties when it comes to America’s first black President.
This probably explains why a recent opinion poll showed that 80 per cent of people in Britain wanted Obama to win. They only know what they read and watch on TV, which for the past few years has been a constant fanfare of fawning praise.
New dawn? This looks more like a new dusk
But the Democrats are well aware that the pumping of federal money into corporate bail-outs and infrastructure projects in declining regions is the key to creating a state clientele that keeps voting them back into office.
The administration is already devising stealth taxes to help pay for the bribes it wishes to offer the coalition of minorities that comprise its supporters. Some will corrode the core of American self-reliance, such as taxes on any substantial capital gains made from house sales. Others are simply opportunist, such as a tax on tanning salons.
Biden stated the Dems “have a mandate” to raise taxes. Always talking about “mandates” have gotten previous Presidents in trouble. I suggest both Obama and Biden drop that shtick and govern for the good of all of the people, something he has yet to do. Obama created the factions that divide us by calling us the “enemy” and asking for votes based on “revenge”. It’s time for him to stop the pettiness and divisivness that has driven his politics and policies. He needs to end the class and race warfare he created for the good of the country and its people. According to the National Journal;
Barack Obama won a second term but no mandate. Thanks in part to his own small-bore and brutish campaign, victory guarantees the president nothing more than the headache of building consensus in a gridlocked capital on behalf of a polarized public.
If the president begins his second term under any delusion that voters rubber-stamped his agenda on Tuesday night, he is doomed to fail.
