Is Obama Able To Finally Keep A Damn Promise And Turn America Around? Mr. Disbarred ‘It Depends On What The Meaning Of The Word ‘Is’ Is’ Says Yes He Can!

Nobody denies that Bill Clinton is able to give a great speech.  If anything, Clinton’s speeches make Obama look mediocre by comparison.  Particularly when Clinton talks about his record and you’re a sentient life form who has any consciousness of reality as to Obama’s economy after four years of his failed policies.

But ultimately, Bill Clinton’s speech amounted to this: “Trust me.  Obama is the man to lead us to shared prosperity.”

I could point out that “shared prosperity” didn’t work in the U.S.S.R.; it didn’t work in Maoist China; it didn’t work in Cuba; it didn’t work in North Korea.  It didn’t work pretty much anywhere it has ever been tried.  It is bankrupting Europe as we speak.  And it won’t work here.  But I’m more fixated on Bill Clinton’s “Trust me” thing.

How many intelligent people don’t understand that Bill Clinton gave his speech as a career Democrat who was loyally trying to rally Democrats?  Probably zero.  But unfortunately, there simply aren’t a lot of intelligent people any more, thanks to what liberals have done to our government schools over the last forty damn years.

It comes down to this: Bill Clinton was a president who got his ass historically kicked for his party’s failures in 1994.  And as a result of that asskicking, Republicans took control of both the House and the Senate.  And as a result of that repudiation, Bill Clinton said, “The era of big government is over,” and began to govern NOT as a liberal like Obama but as a moderate who compromised and worked with the Republican Party.  And as a result of that “era of big government is over” governance, America got a balanced budget and began to thrive under grand tax cuts like the capital gains rate that Clinton cut from 28% to 20%.  That Republican-style tax cut unleashed the economy, causing capital investment to MORE THAN TRIPLE.

That, for the record, is because Tax Cuts Increase Revenues; They Have ALWAYS Increased Revenues.

It is a deliberately forgotten fact that Clinton ended his presidency as a success because he benefitted from the policies of a completely Republican-controlled Congress.  Bush ended his presidency as a disaster because he was plagued by the policies of a completely Democrat-controlled Congress.

It is a national disgrace that this nation is controlled by a mainstream media propaganda machine that keeps pumping the message that Obama couldn’t succeed because of Republican obstructionism.  Because they will NEVER be consistent or honest and tell you that our economy melted down in 2008 thanks to the policies of Democrats who controlled both the House AND the Senate, whereas Obama benefitted from complete control of both branches of Congress for his first two years in office and now still has Democrats controlling the Senate.  George Bush would have LOVED to have enjoyed as little “obstructionism” as he was burdened by his last two years in office under the rule of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid.

That is why every single time I hear a Democrat mention “Republican obstructionism” I can know that I am dealing with a completely dishonest human being and that it is time to move on.  Because you have got to be an abject lying hypocrite to say that after George Bush tried not once but SEVENTEEN TIMES to reform Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac prior to the collapse of those two institutions which triggered the mortgage-market meltdown in 2008.  When you look at the FACT that conservative economists literally PREDICTED the collapse when Democrats empowered Fannie and Freddie to give mortgages to people who could not possibly afford to pay their loans; when you look at the FACT that Fannie and Freddie were the ONLY entities that were empowered to create the subprime-based mortgage backed securities that became the “toxic assets” that poisoned the portfolios of suddenly bankrupted firms like Lehman Brothers and Merrill Lynch; when you look at the FACT that as this disaster was building and building and building after Bill Clinton expanded the disasterous loan program, and that Democrats in Congress rabidly refused any kind of reform of these suicidal policies when there was still time to fix what was broken, you are simply a fool if you don’t acknowledge that it was DEMOCRATS who were the obstructionists.  And all you people are for whining about Republicans is DISHONEST HYPOCRITES.

And somehow Bill Clinton managed to completely omit the FACT that he created a financial collapse and resulting serious recession of his own in the DotCom Bubble collapse that resulted in George Bush watching $7.1 trillion in wealth vaporized while the 78% of the Nasdaq portfolio valuation was annihilated.  And the only reason that recession isn’t well-remembered is that the 9/11 disaster that resulted from Bill Clinton’s gutting the military and the CIA and our intelligence apparatus and leaving us both weak and blind even as he emboldened Osama bin Laden to view America as a weak “paper tiger” that was “ready to be cowed by an attack.”

Bill Clinton omitted the fact that he left George Bush in a hole that wasn’t a lot less deep than the hole Bush left Obama in.

So should we trust Bill Clinton when he rallies to his fellow Democrat and says, “Trust me, Obama is the only man who can lead you to a better future?”

How about not?

Let’s see: Juanita Broaddrick credibly accused Bill Clinton of raping her. There’s no question Bill Clinton had a sexual affair with Gennifer Flowers – and lied about it. Bill Clinton paid Paula Jones $850,000 to settle her sexual harassment case against him. Kathleen Willey was a loyal Democrat and supporter of Bill Clinton until he grabbed her hand and placed it on his genitalia. And then we all know about how he lied about his sexual affair with Monica Lewinsky, even calling her a “stalker,” until it was revealed that she had a dress with his semen on it.

Yeah, I’d trust Bill Clinton.  Every bit as much as Monica Lewinsky’s father would trust Bill Clinton with Monica’s younger sister.

As a result of his “I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky” bullcrap, Bill Clinton was DISBARRED FROM PRACTICING LAW.

Lawyers constitute the fourth most distrusted profession in America.  And Bill Clinton was too dishonest to remain part of it.  That should only add to the weight that the slickest politician of all time – he was nicknamed “Slick Willie” as governor of Arkansas for damn good reason – is the king of the second most distrusted profession in America as a politician.

And so, yeah, if I were in the market for a used car, and Bill Clinton came out as the salesman, I would go find myself another used car salesman.

Barack Obama is a wildly failed president.  And he is a failure for the very reason that Bill Clinton was ultimately a successful president: because while Bill Clinton compromised and negotiated and bargained with Republicans, Barack Obama surrounded himself with radical leftist ideologues and has steered America left like no president ever has before him.

Obama is going to make a bunch of promises to turn America around and cut the deficit and create jobs, etc. etc., blah, blah, blah.  They’re the same promises he failed to keep four years ago and he’s going to demand more of the same failed policies that failed to fulfill those promises that he demanded the last four failed years.

    Oh goodness, this is a pretty poor blog. In the real world Obama is right of centre.

  2. Michael Eden Says:

    GWF,

    Oh goodness, you are a pretty pathetic dumbass. In the real world Obama is a freaking Marxist.

    Is the “Reverened” Jeremiah Wright whose toxic, racist, unamerican and Marxist church Obama spent 25 years of his life attending “right of center”?

    Is William Ayers “right of center”?

    Is the SEIU “right of center”?

    Is ACORN “right of center”?

    Is it your serious suggestion that Valerie Jarrett is “right of center”??? Seriously???

    Was it “right of center” for Obama to name an open communist to be his Green Jobs czar???

    Is it your serious suggestion that the $862 billion stimulus – the largest government takeover in American history until the even BIGGER $2.6 TRILLION socialist takeover a.k.a. ObamaCare – was “right of center”???

    What on earth kind of crack cocaine did you get ahold of???

    This is the problem: we’ve got so many people just like this GWF turd who are simply demon-possessed and so divorced from reality that it can’t even qualify as pathetic. There is no possible way to reach liberals: they hate truth, they hate reality, they hate the facts and they live in their own toxic little universes with somebody who is this utterly divorced from the real world.

    As somebody who actually IS “right of center” I’ve written over 2,000 damn articles on this site from early 2008 pointing out how radically far from “right of center” Barack Obama has truly been. I could write 2 million or even 2 billion more and a demon-possessed fool like GWF would never bother to even try to comprehend reality.

    Just get lost, you idiot liar. Nobody in their right mind would bother to keep dialoguing with you.

    MichaelE: Looks like you had another hit-n-run progressive. (I’m trying not the use the word “liberal” because there is nothing “liberal” about a post modern American liberal in the spirit of the Enlightenment, but that is another discussion).

    Anyway, I have never seen so much dishonesty in my life as this DNC. Slick Willie distorts the very economic facts of his terms, which I countered here:

  4. Michael Eden Says:

    Dauntless Conservative,

    I get those. They are annoying gnats and I apparently am a big fat light.

    Enjoyed reading the article you linked me to. Lot of good historical facts.

    I might be wrong, but in your paragraph near the end:

    As mentioned above, the unemployment rate was going up before Clinton took office and continued to go up before the tax increases of The Omnibus Reconciliation Act of 1993 was signed in to law in August 1993.

    It seemed to me that where you wrote “up” (twice in the sentence) it should be “down.” The unemployment rate was going down before and rght after Clinton took office, wasn’t it?

    If so, to put it in Clintonian language, “I feel your pain.” I’ll pump out an article and be thinking about another fact while I try to describe a different one and spell check doesn’t catch my conflation.

    I didn’t watch a lot of the DNC speeches. The dishonesty was bad enough, but it’s the Democrats’ hypocrisy that makes me want to throw a shoe at the television. When John Kerry (Mister “I actually voted for that bill before I voted against it”) decided to be the guy to attack Romney as a flip-flopper, well, let’s just say I never have enjoyed vomiting and try to avoid doing it as much as I can. They could have at least tried to find a Democrat with integrity (I know, what am I saying!?!?) rather than get the world’s worst flip-flopper to call the kettle floppy. Nor can I understand how Democrats think that’s a good line of attack, given that Obama promised to close Gitmo and then kept it open; promised to rid his bills of earmarks and then had the most earmark-laden omnibus bill in the history of the republic; demonized Bush for his debt ceiling increase and then had the largest debt ceiling increases in the history of the human race; promised to cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term and then actually tripled that baby; etc. etc.

  5. The Dauntless Conservative Says:

    MichaelE; Hmmm…I see what you’re saying about the UNRATE. Slickwillie took office in Jan 1993. Go back and look at the graph: Well, whaddayaknow; I must have had a dyslexia moment (LOL)! You are partially correct. The UNRATE peaked at 8.2%, unadjusted in Feb 92, a month after Slickwillie took office in Jan 93 when it stood at 8.1% unadjusted. The Omnibus was passed in Aug 93. So, my question the demoncrat liars, still stands “how do you conclude that Slickwillie’s tax increases caused the unemployment rate to go down when it was going down PRIOR to the Omnibus? Slickwillie wasn’t in office long enough to take any significant actions that would have any kind of affect.

  6. Michael Eden Says:

    Dauntless Conservative,

    You know what’s funny? We’re in the same situation now with Obama.

    According to the records, we officially got out of the recession in June of 2009. That was only five months after Obama took office. There is absolutely nothing Obama did or could have done that would have fixed our structural issues and got us out of the recession in five months. They hadn’t even barely started spending the damn stimulus money at that point and they certainly hadn’t spent enough of it to have any impact. You can now go back and find quotes galore about the need to give the stimulus more time. Obama later admitted that the shovel-ready jobs weren’t as shovel-ready as he thought.

    What does that mean? It means that Bush basically got America out of the recession with the measures HE took. And as usual (rather like the Iraq War and the intelligence that got bin Laden that was produced by waterboarding), Obama takes credit for Bush’s actions while demonizing Bush.

    The tax CUT that actually helped us during the Clinton years was his cut in the capital gains rate. And, like everything, that was Republicans doing it, Clinton resisting it, and then later Clinton taking credit for what Republicans had done and he had resisted. Capital gains TRIPLED during that period following and THAT was what produced the revenue that gave us whatever surpluses Clinton wants to claim (our national debt strangely increased every single year of Clinton’s presidency, which is kind of weird for all the “surplusses”).

  7. The Dauntless Conservative Says:

    MichaelE; re:2009 recession; Bush and tax cuts in Clinton years; you are most certainly correct…and the progressive media continues to lie and distort. Thanks for catching the error. Btw, I have this on my blog to: Dr JD Foster, PhD at Heritage goes into more detail here on tax cuts in Clinton year; the boom was in his 2nd term more that his first term: http://www.heritage.org/research/reports/2008/03/tax-cuts-not-the-clinton-tax-hike-produced-the-1990s-boom

  8. Michael Eden Says:

    Dauntless,

    Yeah, I’m familiar with that article and recently used it as a supporting link in one of my own.

    It’s interesting: Clinton raises taxes in 1993. Did things go well in 1993? Well, arguably yes: they went well for REPUBLICANS because Clintonomics was failing so badly. 1994 is the second worse political asskicking in modern American political history behind the 2010 asskicking Obama just got. If you hear somebody say that Clinton’s tax hikes turned America around, you can know you are talking to an idiot. We didn’t get anything resembling the “good years” or the “budget surpluses” or the “big tax revenues” until Republicans passed the capital gains tax cut and Clinton signed it. THAT’S what made the economic engine of America start cranking out horsepower.

    Btw, with that correction, I’ll copy and paste your article right below the heritage one, because it really was well-written with some key additional insights.

    I’ve done the same thing: for example, the unemployment rate going UP is bad, whereas the manufacturing rate going UP is good. If you’re thinking ahead as many writers often do, it’s easy to confuse your adjectives.
