Bits and Pieces
“In the end, history is not kind to those who would deny Americans their basic economic security. Nobody remembers well those who stand in the way of America’s progress or our people,” Obama said.
“Economic security”? With millions out of work or underemployed, what does BO think history will say about him? One of our kids had a history assignment. The question asked; Which three Presidents from 1960 to present day would you consider the best and why? The three names that stood out, JFK, Reagan, and W. Bush. If one puts the “D” and “R” aside, and the junk politics, it all boils down to the psychology of the Presidency. Those three stand out because in times of hardship they gave us courage, made us believe we were an exceptional and good people, united us behind common causes. Under them and their leadership we became better people. We believed in ourselves and our greatness without becoming smug and arrogant, and we flourished as a people. That is their legacy. They stood for progress and their people. She told me she didn’t think her history teacher likes BO very much. I told her most historians don’t, we know better.
BO thinks he is building a huge legacy, he isn’t. Our people are divided and dispirited under his faux leadership. When he isn’t lying, he busies himself creating conflict among the people. For some strange reason he seems to think this is a good thing. He has told minorities to “fight their enemies” which boils down to hating on white people. How hateful and sad for all of us, we aren’t “the enemy”. He talks about immigration reform, but it’s just talk. He talks about “focusing” on job creation, but it’s just talk. He talks a lot about a lot of things, mostly negative, but it’s all talk. He talks so much and does so little. Not one thing has resulted in a positive outcome and his administration is scandal ridden. Does BO really think his “stinkburger” of a Presidency will be lauded? Probably, but he is wrong. The only thing he will be remembered for is being “the first black President”. If that is considered an accomplishment of his Presidency, it will only be a historical footnote. America is still not going to work, real unemployment is at 12.8%. Obamacare has made it worse not better for all of us.
Charles Koch had a terrific article in the WSJ. I’m Fighting to Restore a Free Society
Instead of fostering a system that enables people to help themselves, America is now saddled with a system that destroys value, raises costs, hinders innovation and relegates millions of citizens to a life of poverty, dependency and hopelessness. This is what happens when elected officials believe that people’s lives are better run by politicians and regulators than by the people themselves. Those in power fail to see that more government means less liberty, and liberty is the essence of what it means to be American. Love of liberty is the American ideal.
If more businesses (and elected officials) were to embrace a vision of creating real value for people in a principled way, our nation would be far better off—not just today, but for generations to come. I’m dedicated to fighting for that vision. I’m convinced most Americans believe it’s worth fighting for, too.
Harry Reid has been attacking the Koch brothers from the Senate floor quite a bit lately. Maybe he should take another look at the money influencing his own party. Soros spends huge amounts of cash to manipulate domestic and foreign policy. If Reid really gave a damn about the “big money influence” in politics, he need look no further than George Soros.
Mr. Soros‘ Open Society Foundations have annual assets of more than $3.5 billion, a pool from which he can dole out grants to pet projects, according to 2011 tax returns, the most recent on file for his charitable organizations.
David and Charles Koch, the billionaire brothers who often are cited for their conservative influence, had $308 million tied up in their foundation and institute in 2011.
Finally the media gets something right….Networks Snub Obama On Primetime Health Care Address
White House officials sought valuable primetime air for a rare, impromptu Tuesday night address to tout the accomplishment of signing up more than 7 million people under the Affordable Care Act. [snip]
Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the primetime slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular.
He did his victory dance but, the disapproval rating is still at 65%. Celebrating the sign up of 7.1 million people is nothing to crow about. After all under his “affordable” plan 5 or 6 million have lost their health insurance. A Catastrophe Like No Other
Losing talent to satisfy a “gay advocacy group” that the IRS leaked information to. What an ugly hateful bunch of people, both the gay advocacy group and the IRS. Another part of BO’s “legacy”.
The eight years of BO’s Presidency will be noted and the conclusion will not be one of “hope and change”.
