America’s Credit Rating Downgraded: ‘Chickens Coming Home To Roost’

April 19, 2011

America’s chickens are coming home to roost.”  Just not the way that Barack Obama and his spiritual mentor for more than 20 years said it was.

Taking the war to enemies who despise us and plot our destruction is not what brings on “No, no, no.  Not God bless America, God DAMN America!”  It is the vile policies of a profoundly socialist president such as Barack Obama that bring that judgment about.

“Our chickens” are going to be roasted – and God will damn America – with a financial implosion that will make the Great Depression look like the most pleasant walk on the beach.

Margaret Thatcher said that “The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.”  But Obama will continue to demand that we keep spending “other people’s money” – the rich he demonizes even as he parasitically leeches off of, China and anyone else fool enough to give him money – until there is nothing left to spend but empty promises of “hope and change.”

And then pop will go the American weasel that had been an eagle until Obama “fundamentally transformed” it.

Standard & Poor’s on Monday downgraded the outlook for the United States to negative, saying it believes there’s a risk U.S. policymakers may not reach agreement on how to address the country’s long-term
fiscal pressures. […]

The Dow Jones industrial average tumbled more than 200 points on word of the revision, while gold prices hit a new record above $1,496 an ounce

What is basically going on is that S & P is worried that politicians will act as morally depraved as Barack Obama did in 2006 when he voted against the debt ceiling and demonized George Bush for his “failure of leadership” and his “reckless fiscal policies” in seeking an increase in the debt ceiling:

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”

If our political leaders act as depraved and foolish and vile as the man who is now our president did, we are in big, big trouble.  Think about that: if anyone in this mess acts as craven and as personally despicable as Barack Hussein Obama, America is in big, big trouble.

Now Obama is essentially saying, “Anyone who talks and acts and votes like I did is basically a traitor to America.”

And S & P fears that the America imploding “fundamental transformation” into “hope and change” will win out.

Obama immediately moved to demagogue the S & P the way he’s spent the last two and a half years of his failed presidency demagoguing George Bush:

The Obama administration moved swiftly Monday to downplay ratings agency Standard & Poor’s downgrade of its U.S. credit outlook, calling the decision
a political judgment that should not be taken too seriously.

The timing of S&P’s announcement was unwelcome for the White House, coming just as President Obama tried to regain the initiative on the deficit debate in Washington.

Sorry if fiscal reality got in the way of your viscerally divisive political attack that represents your campaign when everyone who isn’t a total fool knows that we need agreement and consensus.

Obama had (when it was in his hypocritical self-serving interests to appear non-partisan) said:

We’re not going to be able to do anything about any of these entitlements if what we do is characterize whatever proposals are put out there as, ‘Well, you know, that’s — the other party’s being irresponsible. The other party is trying to hurt our senior citizens. That the other party is doing X, Y, Z.”

Then the man who said we need to stop demagoguing and come together proceeds to turn into an incredibly divisive political demagogue in an obvious game of chicken he wants to play with the American people’s future:

One vision has been championed by Republicans in the House of Representatives and embraced by several of their party’s presidential candidates…This is a vision that says up to 50 million Americans have to lose their health insurance in order for us to reduce the deficit.  And who are those 50 million Americans?  Many are someone’s grandparents who wouldn’t be able afford nursing home care without Medicaid.  Many are poor children.  Some are middle-class families who have children with autism or Down’s syndrome.  Some are kids with disabilities so severe that they require 24-hour care.  These are the Americans we’d be telling to fend for themselves.”

Rep. Paul Ryan framed Obama’s cynical and vile tactics beautifully:

MR. BARNES: What are the prospects for a grand bargain?

REP. RYAN: Well, this definitely damages them. I think when you go after your political adversaries with the kind of demagogic terms and comparisons that the President did, that makes it harder.

I forgot whose quote this was. Maybe it was Churchill. But he was basically a pyromaniac in a field of straw men. I mean, to set up all these straw men arguments and then to tear them down, it’s almost as if he wanted to paint his political adversaries, supposedly us, in a cartoonish kind of a way, in a caricature as if we want to hurt people’s grandparents, were against families who have children with autism and disabilities and we don’t want kids to go to college. I mean, that’s basically what I got out of the President’s speech yesterday is that what we believe.

How do you have a serious debate about this? This coming from a President who came to our Republican retreat about a year and a half ago and said what we were hoping to hear: We’ve got to do entitlement reform. We, House Republicans, have put out some credible, serious ideas, and we can’t demagogue each other. We can’t go after each other.

And, look, I’m saying both parties do this, but when the President came and said, “We can’t treat the other party as if they’re hurting seniors and hurting people and using this demagoguery,” that’s what he told us when he came to talk to us in 2010 in Baltimore. What we got yesterday was the opposite of what he said is necessary to fix this problem.

Obama said that demagoguery was only going to undermine any chance at agreement.  Now he’s in full-fledged demonization mode, literally trying to push the Republicans into doing what he himself did in 2006 and vote against raising the debt ceiling.  Because this vile president wants the American people to suffer so that he can demagogue that suffering and pervert it into his political advantage as he runs for president on a record of total dismal failure.

And don’t think for one nanosecond that the Standard & Poor’s downgrade was a direct result of Obama’s vicious, demagogic speech in which he amply demonstrated he will do absolutely nothing about our spending problem except demonize anyone who tries to fix it.

Here is a video of an incredibly chilling fictional scenario that is looking more and more and more like the national news just a short time from now:

It was when a foolish nation voted for Obama that “America’s Chickens came home to roost.”  It was when Obama began to “fundamentally transform” America that we truly became “God damn America.”

Nancy Pelosi: ‘Your Vote Shouldn’t Make Much Difference If You Vote Republican’

April 18, 2011

Elections have consequences:

In Washington’s current state of dysfunction, everyone has a favorite hyper-partisan moment. House Republican Whip Eric Cantor’s moment came at a White House meeting with congressional leaders on day three of the new Administration. He handed President Barack Obama a list of ideas to fix the economy. Pointing to a small business tax-cut item, Obama said: “We disagree on tax policy.” When Cantor tried to justify his own position, Obama responded: “Elections have consequences, and at the end of the day, I won.”

But, of course, elections should only have consequences when the Marxists win.  Otherwise, in the words of the now House MINORITY leader Nancy Pelosi, “… it doesn’t matter so much who wins the election, because we have shared values.”

Shared values my butt.  Unless one of the “shared values” is that only Democrat election victories should matter:

Tuesday, April 12, 2011
Pelosi: “To My Republican Friends: Take Back Your Party. So That it Doesn’t Matter So Much Who Wins the Election”

Ah yes, if only we all thought the way Nancy Pelosi and the Left does, then there would be no problems in our world. I suppose those pesky other points of view and beliefs just get in the way of running our ungovernable country.

From Mediaite is this little but of the former Speaker’s wisdom (video at the link):

“Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi gave a speech at Tufts University in Massachusetts where she shared some ‘friendly’ advice with the opposing side in Washington. Clearly frustrated with the lengthy and acrimonious budget fight, Pelosi said ‘elections shouldn’t matter as much as they do’ and warned that it would be problematic for the country if both parties do not have shared values.

“Pelosi challenged Republicans:

“‘To my Republican friends: take back your party. So that it doesn’t matter so much who wins the election, because we have shared values about the education of our children, the growth of our economy, how we defend our country, our security and civil liberties, how we respect our seniors.’

“Might the old saying ‘elections have consequences’ be replaced by Pelosi’s new version of ‘it doesn’t matter so much who wins the election?'”

She then goes on to say that “Elections shouldn’t matter as much as they do.” Does anyone have a problem with that last line? Anyone?

Of course this is coming from a prominent member of the same political party that declared the Democrats had been given a mandate from the people following the ’08 elections. And this is coming from the same party whose presidential candidate declared that his own election marked the moment when healing would start and the ocean levels would begin to recede. Hmm.

I am also curious as to what exactly were the the shared values that caused Pelosi to push ObamaCare through with a parliamentary trick past massive protests. Some mysterious value not shared by the majority of the American people it would seem. It’s little wonder that Pelosi should believe that elections shouldn’t matter so much in America.

You should be able to vote in Pelosi’s or Obama’s “People’s Republic of the Former United States of America.”  But your vote shouldn’t be allowed to make much of a difference.

I have nothing in common with Nancy Pelosi.  Even when she states a good thing, she proceeds to twist and distort and pervert it into a vile thing.

This kind of reminds me of federal debt ceilings.  When Republicans run things, it is a “failure of leadership” caused by “reckless fiscal policies” to vote for one.  When Marxist liberals are in power, it is a disastrous failure of mindboggling proportions NOT to vote for one.

I for one am sick to my gills of vile rat bastard Democrats and their constantly self-righteous and self-serving tactics.  These people are such total hypocrites that only a media propganda machine that would make Joseph Goebbels envious could possibly not make true Americans vomit at the mere thought of the Demoncrat (that’s “Demonic Bureaucrat”) Party.

The American people need to throw the Obamas (“elections have consequences, and I won”) and Pelosis (elections should only be allowed to have consequences when liberals win)  out on their ear.  They represent a cancer on our republic and the basic democratic values that made our nation great.

Elections DO have consequences.  And so does the inexcusable demagoguery that Obama used to demonize Republicans just a few short years ago.  Obama is claiming that it would entail a national disaster to act as wickedly and treasonously as he himself personally acted in 2006.  He needs to resign for his own abject “failure of leadership” and “reckless fiscal policies.”

Obama On Debt Ceiling, Then And Now

April 11, 2011

Here’s the latest from just over an hour ago:

WH: Obama regrets vote against raising debt limit
Associated Press – 4/11/2011

WASHINGTON – The White House says President Barack Obama regrets his vote as a senator in 2006 against raising the debt limit.

A fight over raising the debt limit is looming, and the White House is trying to explain away the apparent contradiction between Obama’s previous opposition, and his position now that it must be increased.

Press Secretary Jay Carney said Monday that Obama believes his vote was a mistake. He said Obama now realizes that the debt ceiling is too important to be trifled with.

Republicans are threatening to withhold their votes to raise the ceiling unless Obama agrees to major spending reductions.

A failure to raise the debt limit would mean the government would not be able to make debt payments, leading to an unprecedented default on the national debt.

Oh, well, I guess that fixes everything.  The man was just utterly incompetent back then.  But now when he’s in the same position his moral and intellectual superior in every way – that’s George W. Bush – was in, he suddenly realizes he made a mistake.

And you’ve got to give this post turtle in the Oval Office leeway, after all.

But Obama didn’t just vote against raising the debt ceiling; he personally demonized George Bush for trying to raise it.  He said:

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”

“America has a debt problem,” Obama said in 2006.  That year, Republicans passed their last budget before losing power to Democrats until this year.  It had a deficit of $161 billion.  The next year the Democrats virtually tripled that deficit to $459 billion.  And in two years of Obama it has soared to $3 TRILLION.

The AP correctly pointed out that “It was a blast by the freshman lawmaker against a Bush request to raise the debt limit to $8.96 trillion.”

It was a personal attack by an evil fool against a president which history now proves knew what he was doing versus the current moral idiot who clearly does not.

Here’s what Obama’s own Treasury Secretary said Obama wanted for America and for the American people only a few years ago:

Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner warned Congress Thursday that it must raise  the statutory limit on the nation’s debt by the end of March or risk an  unprecedented and economically devastating default on American debt.

“Never in our history has Congress failed to increase the debt limit when  necessary,” Geithner said in the letter, which was sent to all members of  Congress. “Failure to raise the limit would precipitate a default by the United  States. Default would effectively impose a significant and long-lasting tax on  all Americans and American businesses and could lead to the loss of millions of  American jobs.”

Obama hasn’t changed since then; he’s the same reckless fool that he was in 2006.  The only difference is that this reckless fool has been promoted to the highest office in the land and in the world.

Obama was dead wrong about pretty much everything he’s ever believed.  Obama was dead wrong about the war on terror (or as he demanded it be called, “overseas contingency operations” or, even more insanely, “man caused disasters.”  Obama was dead wrong on Guantanamo.  Obama was dead wrong about military commissions.  Obama was dead wrong about unlimited detainment of some terrorists.  Obama was dead wrong about rendition.  Obama was dead wrong about presidential authority to wage military actions.  Obama was dead wrong about punitive taxes on the rich.  Obama was dead wrong about his out-of-control budgets.  Obama was dead wrong about every single policy he ever held - on the evidence of his own reversals.

Barack Obama is at best a colossal fool, the grand fool of all fools.  At worst he is the most evil and depraved man to ever contaminate the White House with his moral filth.  Personally, given that no one is more foolish than the wicked, I believe he is both all at once.

This is God damn America, as Barack Obama’s pastor and spiritual mentor for 23 years said:

“No, no, no, not God bless America.  God damn America!”

The hallmark of God damned America is that we get the despicable and vile leaders that we deserve.  And God damn America, but we sure got us a turd-and-half.
