Democrats And Harry Reid The WORST OBSTRUCTIONISTS IN THE ENTIRE HISTORY OF THE REPUBLIC. TIMES TWO.

October 23, 2014

This is just staggering.  As evil as I believe the Democrat Party in America is, I am constantly caught off-guard by how truly wicked these people are.

You have heard that the Republican Party is the party of obstructionism.

That’s because you are surrounded by “journalists” who are little more than Nazi propagandists in the mold of Joseph Goebbels.

In reality, Harry Reid has now blocked more US Senators from offering any amendments to legislation more often than EVERY OTHER SENATE MAJORITY LEADER IN THE UNITED STATES COMBINED.  TIMES TWO.

Democrats are fascists who want socialism and want government with more and more raw power over our lives.  They are tyrants who have demonstrated time and time again that they are willing to exploit and abuse the power of government to implement their fascist agenda – such as when Obama used the IRS as his own “Internal Revenge Service” to target and attack and intimidate his political opponents.  They are liars and hypocrites who do the very things they often falsely accuse their opponents of doing.  For example, I still vividly remember after Bush and Republicans passed the Patriot Act  how evil and fascist Bush was.  And we have seen Obama TEN TIMES WORSE SINCE THEN and Democrats are silent as the grave about Obama’s myriad abuses of civil liberties.  Democrats accuse Republicans of being intolerant, but study after study shows that hey, fool, it’s actually just the damn opposite.  And all you need to see how fascist and tyrannical and dishonest Democrats are is to consider both of the two  most powerful Democrats are acting as Obama continues to issue vast, sweeping – FASCIST – executive orders and Harry Reid has “fundamentally transformed” the United States Senate into the most ideological and most fascist tyranny machine in the entire history of the former United States.

Obama KNOWINGLY LIED about criminal illegal immigrants.  He released back into the United States illegal immigrants who had been convicted of rape and even murder.  His administration demonized the whistle blowers and truth-tellers who reported that knowing that it was true.

Now we’re finding out that Obama is waiting until after the election – after the people would have the chance to hold this criminal fascist tyrant accountable – to give amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants in an incredibly cynical Democrat attempt to permanently extend their power by tyrannically granting citizenship to millions of people who will vote Democrat.

Let me ask you a question in this age where all it takes is one terrorist to slip through the cracks to do catastrophic damage to any free society: given the FACT that Obama can’t control even his releases of criminal illegal immigrants from prison, how the hell can he possibly know who he’s granting amnesty to when we’re talking about tens of millions???

The dishonest fascist media propaganda claims that the GOP-controlled House is obstructing any compromise between the parties.  But here’s a fact for you: the House has allowed over 200 bills from Democrats; versus the Democrat-controlled Senate, which as only allowed 14 from Republicans.

Obstructionist Senate Democrats Block Obama’s Jobs Bill

October 5, 2011

Can’t blame Republicans for blocking Obama’s jobs bill about which he has said “Pass this bill!” more than a million times.

If you really want to know which party is the real “obstructionists,” it’s your DemocRATS:

Senate Democrats forced to block Obama’s jobs bill
by Stephen Dinan

Senate Republicans tried to make Democrats hold a quick vote on President Obama’s jobs-stimulus bill Tuesday, but were blocked by Senate Majority Harry Reid, the Nevada Democrat who is sponsoring Mr. Obama’s bill but who said other matters take priority.

Mr. Obama has traveled the country calling for Congress to pass his plan immediately — including most recently Tuesday afternoon in Texas — but the tax increases included in his bill are opposed by Republicans and even many Democrats.

With that in mind, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Kentucky Republican, tried to force a vote, which presumably would have resulted in a humiliating defeat for the White House.

“I’d like to give him that vote,” Mr. McConnell said.

The Senate is currently debating a bill that would push for compensatory tariffs on exports from countries that manipulate their currency — which is designed to punish China.

Mr. Reid said that bill has been waiting for years, and takes precedence over the president’s jobs-stimulus. He tried to get an agreement to short-circuit a filibuster and bring up the president’s bill later this month, but Mr. McConnell objected that.

“What a charade we have going on here,” Mr. Reid fired back, calling Republicans’ effort “ridiculous on its face.”

Mr. Reid said “a majority of the Senate” supports Mr. Obama’s bill, and said the president’s repeated calls for immediate action were aimed at Republicans last month, when Congress was fighting over how to add emergency disaster relief to a stopgap spending bill.

“Of course the president was calling for his jobs bill, recognizing that what was going on here … was a waste of time,” Mr. Reid said.

But even after the disaster funding situation was resolved, Mr. Obama has continued to pressure Congress.

Meanwhile, the White House has refused to say whether it supports the China bill Mr. Reid has prioritized ahead of the jobs measure

I like the creative title to this article.  “Democrats forced to block Obama’s jobs bill.”  It reads sort of like, “Hiker forced to cut off own leg.”

Republicans are literally trying to force Democrats to vote on Obama’s jobs bill.  But Democrats don’t WANT to vote on Obama’s jobs bill.  Even as Democrats demonically, deceitfully and frankly dumbassedly demagogue Republicans as “obstructionists.”

Democrats’ skulls should explode from trying to contain all the contradictions.

Something To Know As Obama Gives His Jobs Speech: Senate Democrats Have Been BLOCKING Republican-Passed Jobs Bills

September 8, 2011

Damn terrorist obstructionist Democrats are holding America “hostage.”

That’s the truth, if someone were to care enough to turn off the mainstream media propaganda blather and seek the actual facts:

Republicans Remind Obama: Democrats Are Blocking House-Passed Jobs Bills
Wednesday, September 07, 2011
By Susan Jones

(CNSNews.com) – Republican leaders are reminding President Obama that the House of Representatives has passed more than a dozen “pro-growth” measures to spur job creation, but with one exception, Senate Democrats have refused to consider any of those bills.
 
In a letter to the president on Tuesday, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) listed all the House-passed “jobs” bills that are now languishing in the Senate. They include a bill to reduce the regulatory burdens on farmers and small business owners; a bill to block a “job-destroying national energy tax,” and a bill to boost offshore energy production. (See full list below.)
 
Boehner and Cantor also outlined “potential opportunities for Congress and the White House to work together” on job-creation.
 
An infrastructure initiative is one of those areas: “We are not opposed to initiatives to repair and improve infrastructure,” the Republican leaders said, but instead of new spending, they’re calling for spending “reforms,” as follows:
 
“Current law requires that states set-aside 10 percent of their surface transportation funds for transportation enhancements, which must be used for items such as establishment of transportation museums, education activities for pedestrians and bicyclists, acquisition of scenic easements, historic preservation, operation of historic transportation facilities, etc.,” Boehner and Cantor noted.
 
“While many of the initiatives funded by this mandatory set-aside may be worthy projects, eliminating this required set-aside would allow states to devote more money to the types of infrastructure programs you are advocating without adding to the deficit.  We believe such a reform would be consistent with your statement last week that we should ‘reform the way transportation money is invested, to eliminate waste, to give states more control over the projects that are right for them.'”
 
Other areas of possible cooperation, according to Republican leaders, include a proposal to speed up the permitting process for construction projects; reforms to the unemployment system; and completing free trade agreements with Colombia, Panama, and South Korea.
 
“These reforms alone are not a substitute for a comprehensive pro-growth jobs agenda, such as the one House Republicans have put forth and continue to implement. But they are potential areas for common ground,” Boehner and Cantor told the president.
 
Because Democrats and Republicans “sincerely believe” that their own policies are the right way to get the economy growing, it’s unlikely that either side will completely give in to the other.  But, Boehner and Cantor added, it is “critical” that both sides focus on areas of common agreement: “We should not approach this as an all or nothing situation,” they said.
 
The Republican leaders said they would like to meet with President Obama before he gives his “jobs” address to a joint session of Congress on Thursday. Such a meeting – including leaders from both parties — would give lawmakers “the opportunity to constructively discuss your proposals.”
 
Boehner and Cantor said they are specifically interested in learning the cost estimates for 212 new regulatory actions planned by the Obama administration.
 
Attachment to Boehner/Cantor letter to President Obama:
Bills Passed by the House of Representatives that Have Not Been Considered by the Democrat-Controlled Senate
 
The Reducing Regulatory Burdens Act (H.R. 872), which would halt duplicative federal regulations on farmers and small business owners that are impeding job creation.
 
The Energy Tax Prevention Act (H.R. 910), which would stop the federal bureaucracy from imposing a job-destroying national energy tax.
 
The Clean Water Cooperative Federalism Act (H.R. 2018), which would restrict the federal government’s ability to second-guess or delay a state’s permitting and water quality certification decisions under the Clean Water Act once the EPA has already approved a state’s program, preventing approval process delays that cost jobs and leave businesses hampered by uncertainty.
 
The Consumer Financial Protection & Soundness Improvement Act (H.R. 1315), which would increase consumer protection and government accountability by eliminating the ability of Dodd-Frank’s unelected Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Director to unilaterally carry out regulations that hurt job growth.
 
The Restarting American Offshore Leasing Now Act (H.R. 1230), which would help to address high gas prices and support the creation of new American jobs by increasing offshore energy production.
 
The Putting the Gulf of Mexico Back to Work Act (H.R. 1229) and the Reversing President Obama’s Offshore Moratorium Act (H.R. 1231), which would help to put thousands of Americans back to work by ending the de facto moratorium on American energy production in the Gulf of Mexico in a safe, responsible and transparent manner by setting firm timelines for considering permits to drill.
 
The Jobs and Energy Permitting Act of 2011 (H.R. 2021), which would streamline the permit process for American energy production to help lower prices and create tens of thousands of new jobs.
 
The North American-Made Energy Security Act (H.R. 1938), which would require the federal government to make a determination by a date certain on whether or not it will allow the Keystone XL pipeline expansion, which is projected to directly create 20,000 jobs and support the creation of thousands more, to move forward.
 
A Budget for Fiscal Year 2012 (H.Con.Res. 34).  With Washington’s failure to control spending hurting job creation in America, the House has passed its budget, while the Senate has not yet considered a budget of its own.

Hmm.  Nine bills that the Republicans have passed.  And those terrorist Democrats have decided to murder American workers by sheer meanness instead.

Obama’s speech tonight is going to be completely poitical, in that he will set himself up as the “reasonable” man in the room.  And anyone who disagrees with his “balanced approach” is simply not interested in helping the nation recover.

You see, I remember someone talking just like that before: his name happened to be Adolf Hitler.  Just set yourself up as the Transcendent One and anyone who disagrees with you is a threat who must be dealt with.

The reality is that Obama announced his plan (before going on vacation) when it is now clear he didn’t even HAVE any damn plan.  And the Washington Post – which leans decidedly left – noted that the White House was “scrambling” to come up with something upon Obama’s return from hobnobbing with liberal millionaires at Martha’s Vineyard.  He called for a joint-session of Congress – which as a general rule serves for State of the Union speeches and WARS – but then came out and said his speech really wouldn’t try to accomplish very much and would merely be one of “several speeches.”

Because everybody knows we’re in a crisis and what we need is another speech.

Becuase if I were drowning, I would be desperately hoping that Obama’s liberal limousine caravan would show up packing the teleprompters so that Obama could give a speech until the level of the oceans were lowered.

Why is Obama giving his speech in front of a joint session of Congress, instead of actually submitting a detailed plan in writing so Congress can see precisely what Obama is committing himself to?  Because this is nothing more than a political manuever; it has nothing whatsoever to do with actually changing anything.  Obama wants to set up a straw man; he wants to be the “reasonable one” with “the balanced approach” who had the answers – even though all of his answers have already repeatedly failed – only those mean Republican terrorist obstructionist hostage takers wouldn’t embrace his plan.

It’s just another failed stimulus that Obama will refuse to call a “stimulus.”  It’s more “shovel-ready jobs” that Obama is now calling “contruction workers ready to get dirty” because he thinks you people are just too damn stupid to have a clue that he’s pushing the same failed bullcrap that he’s been pushing for three failed years.

One of the funniest things of all in this is that Republicans are actually being called DISRESPECTFUL (and literally racist) for not bothering to offer a rebuttal to Obama’s load of feces:

“This is just dumb. The former speaker is criticizing us for passing up an opportunity to criticize the president,” said a GOP aide.

Of course, they would have been every bit as racist if they HAD criticized the president.  But that’s for a whole other Obama speech.

Republicans seem to know that no matter what they do, the mainstream media propaganda will froth over the fact that the Republicans have dared to question their great Führer.  So why even bother?

Who’s To Blame For The Economic Mess We’re In? Two Views.

August 1, 2011

A fellow named Rich had this to say to me in response to my article, “GOP Or Democrats: Who’s To Blame For the Budget, Spending And Shutdown Mess We’re Now In?”:

Not sure how I got to your site, but I thought I would add my two cents. Obviously, to anyone watching the budget debacle, it is much more complicated than you have laid out, and thrown at the feet of the Democrats. For the two years the Democrats held control of the House and Senate, the House sent budgets to the Senate that were held up by the Republicans using the rule that in order to get anything passed, there had to be 60 votes for it. The Republicans did everything they could to hold up any legislation. You also neglect to mention the sorry state of the economy even at the point the Democrats took power, which necessitated a huge increase in spending the George Bush signed, because he knew that without that spending our economy was going down. For the last nearly four years, we have watched a battle as the economy, which should have crashed because of the excesses of the financial world’s follies, was barely kept afloat by government spending. And those financial follies, including the credit swaps valued at almost $500 trillion, are still there and are still ready to crash our system. Meanwhile, people like you debate who is to blame for it all, when it truth it is a lot of both parties for allowing the financial markets to be able to screw up our system so bad by destroying legislation that held it in check, and even more blame to the financial whizzes, whose incredible greed this time truly broke the bank, and some of the blame on all of us, for thinking we could use our homes as banks, and that we could continually move our debt into the future with no consequence.

Here was my response:

Rich,

Your two cents doesn’t seem to be worth very much. I guess it must be due to all the inflation Obama has given us with his trillions of dollars of debt and his policy of printing money (Obama spending $4.1 billion EVERY DAY vs. Bush’s $1.6 billion).

I don’t know if anybody has ever told you this, but it just so happens that there were Democrats around the whole time Reagan was president, the whole time Bush I was president, and the whole time Bush II was president. What is asinine of you is how you say Repbublicans are to blame now for all the economic woes when they’ve only controlled the House for what? five months plus a few days? But the Democrats weren’t to blame when they had total control of both the House and the Senate for the two years prior to the economy imploding in 2008. And of course the Democrats have had absolute power over the House, the Senate and the presidency SINCE 2008.

Obama had historic power and Democrats had historic control in 2009-10. Versus Bush, who had NO influence over a House and Senate that were BOTH heavily Democrat control the last two years of his presidency (you know, the period when everything went from pretty good to total crap). And what did we get from Democrats besides TRILLIONS in debt and a devastated economy that has been paralyzed with Obama’s failed leadership and reckless policies??? We didn’t even get a damn BUDGET from Democrats for two years.  How is that not such a failure of responsibility that these Democrats of yours don’t belong in jail???

So your “We’ve only got problems because of Republican obstructionism” point runs into the snafu of the fact that we only had problems because of Democrat obstructionism THE REST OF THE TIME.

Here’s just one of oh-so-many examples:

The Left now acts as if this never happened. For instance, in a recent television appearance, liberal commentator Bill Press argued that–rather than noisy disagreement–”Americans want discussion” on health-care reform. Who could disagree with that sentiment–except, perhaps, the Obama administration, which pushed Congress to rush through legislation by early August? This timeline was clearly aimed at preempting discussion and presenting the public with a “done deal” on health reform. As one protester put it, the president spent more time choosing a dog than he did discussing health-care reform.

Likewise, Mr. Press complained that opponents hadn’t put their own reform plans on the table. “The people who are there to protest–what are they for? Are they for the status quo? The Republicans haven’t put any other plan on the table.” But did congressional Democrats offer their own alternative to President Bush’s 2005 Social Security plan? When a fellow Democrat asked Rep. Nancy Pelosi when their party would offer its own Social Security plan, her answer was “Never. Is that soon enough for you?” Democrats would not even negotiate until personal retirement accounts were taken off the table. Why should Republicans act differently today, regarding the “public option”?

So, if I’m supposed to feel boo-hoo-hoo and wah sorry for Democrats because of “Republican obstructionism,” allow me to simply politely suggest that you stick it in your ear or whatever orifice it fits into. Democrats were so obstructionist it was beyond unreal, and for you Democrats to whine about “obstructionism” now makes me realize that every single one of you is a pathological hypocrite. It’s really quite amazing, the unrelenting chutzpah you people have.

Harry Reid just got through tabling TWO House-passed Republican bills without even bothering to have a vote.  He actually said of the first bill (the cut, cap and balance bill) that it was the worst legislation in the history of the republic.  Because apparently he liked the Fugitive Slave Act his party once passed.

Now, you go on from one simply ridiculous point to another.  You proceed to say, “You also neglect to mention the sorry state of the economy even at the point the Democrats took power.”

Well, let’s look at that. I’ll mention it, but I don’t think you’ll like it. Because I’ve got something called “facts.” Like I said, the Democrats took power over both the House and the Senate in the 2006 election. Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid were running things from January 2007 on. And to answer your question, the unemployment rate when they took over was 4.6%. I know, I know. Pretty bad. Good thing you Democrats were around to save us and send it to over 10% (and three years into Obama’s reign of terror it’s 9.2%).  Good thing you Democrats were able to so successfully lead us to such incredibly pathetic ecomomic growth that we are likely to have a DOUBLE-DIP recession.  And you know it’s that second scoop where all the fat, calories, misery and pain are, don’t you?

It is funny how simply unrelentingly dumb you liberals are determined to be. Obama, Reid and Pelosi spend TRILLIONS of dollars, and it’s Bush’s fault??? Of course it is.  From NPR:

In his State of the Union address tonight, President Obama will reportedly issue a call for “responsible” efforts to reduce deficits (while simultaneously calling for new federal spending). In light of the President’s expected rhetorical nod to fiscal responsibility, it’s worth keeping in mind his record on deficits to date. When President Obama took office two years ago, the national debt stood at $10.626 trillion. It now stands at $14.071 trillion — a staggering increase of $3.445 trillion in just 735 days (about $5 billion a day).

To put that into perspective, when President George W. Bush took office, our national debt was $5.768 trillion. By the time Bush left office, it had nearly doubled, to $10.626 trillion. So Bush’s record on deficit spending was not good at all: During his presidency, the national debt rose by an average of $607 billion a year. How does that compare to Obama? During Obama’s presidency to date, the national debt has risen by an average of $1.723 trillion a year — or by a jaw-dropping $1.116 trillion more, per year, than it rose even under Bush.

Bush spent an average of $1.6 billion a day, for what it’s worth (and it ought to be worth A LOT compared to $5 billion a day).

For the record, Obama is spending TEN TIMES MORE – adjusted for inflation – to get us out of the “Great Recession” than FDR spent to try to get us out of the GREAT DEPRESSION. And of course it doesn’t matter at all that both FDR and Obama spent MASSIVELY and both men utterly FAILED (here’s the skinny on FDR making the Great Depression last SEVEN YEARS longer than it should have.  And now of course Obama is failing with the same Keynesian failed policies that FDR failed with). So your assertion that Obama had to spend all these trillions of dollars is a rather idiotic joke.

Your assertion, “… which necessitated a huge increase in spending the George Bush signed, because he knew that without that spending our economy was going down” is tantamount to your saying, “I am a rabid Keynesian ideologue.  And no matter how many times this same stupid government spending idea fails, I’m going to cling to it like a rat clinging to a piece of wood on a sinking ship.”  You won’t learn. You CAN’T learn.

I just wish you people WEREN’T hypocrites for just once in your lives, but Iike I said, it’s pathological with you people.

I can just quote myself refuting the same stupid argument from another liberal:

That said, your argument that Obama isn’t to blame because he was just fxing Bush’s mess might not be the statement of a totally dishonest and depraved vermin, but you refuse to give the same benefit of the doubt to Bush, don’t you?

Bill Clinton left George Bush with the massive Dotcom bubble collapse. That collapse that happened on Clinton’s watch wiped out 78% of the Nasdaq portfolio, and in fact vaporized more than 7.1 TRILLION DOLLARS in American wealth. And the ONLY reason we don’t talk about that – aside that too many in the media are just as biased and as stupid as you are, Smith – is that Clinton had also GUTTED the Pentegon and intelligence budget, leaving America both weak (Osama bin Laden called Clinton’s America “a paper tiger”) and blind. Clinton did to the CIA budget what he did to the Nasdaq – just wiped it out – and left us exposed to the 9/11 attack.

Osama bin Laden’s words in 1998 following the Clinton fiasco in Somalia where the US pulled out with its tail between its legs: “Our boys no longer viewed America as a superpower. So, when they left Afghanistan, they went to Somalia and prepared themselves carefully for a long war. They had thought that the Americans were like the Russians, so they trained and prepared. They were stunned when they discovered how low was the morale of the American soldier. America had entered with 30,000 soldiers in addition to thousands of soldiers from different countries in the world. … As I said, our boys were shocked by the low morale of the American soldier and they realized that the American soldier was just a paper tiger. He was unable to endure the strikes that were dealt to his army, so he fled, and America had to stop all its bragging and all that noise it was making in the press…”

Here’s a little more about how we have Bill Clinton to thank for the massive 9/11 attack to go on top of his massive DotCom bubble collapse:

Author James Risen won the Pulitzer Prize on Tuesday for his much ballyhooed New York Times report last December that revealed President Bush’s previously secret terrorist surveillance program – a revelation he uncovered while researching his book “State of War.”

In the same book, however, Risen makes an equally explosive claim about President Clinton’s relationship with the CIA – which his editors at the Times have so far declined to cover.

Upon taking power in 1993, Risen reports, the Clinton administration “began slashing the intelligence budget in search of a peace dividend, and Bill Clinton showed almost no interest in intelligence matters.”

The agency cutbacks combined with presidential disinterest took their toll almost immediately.

“Over a three-or-four-year period in the early-to-mid 1990s,” reports Risen, “virtually an entire generation of CIA officers – the people who had won the Cold War – quit or retired. One CIA veteran compared the agency to an airline that had lost all of is senior pilots . . . “

After Clinton CIA Director John Deutch cashiered several senior officers over a scandal in Guatamala, the situation got even worse.

“Morale [at the CIA] plunged to new lows, and the agency became paralyzed by an aversion to high-risk espionage operations for fear they would lead to political flaps. Less willing to take big risks, the CIA was less able to recruit spies in dangerous places such as Iraq.”

And there’s the blindness that led to the 9/11 attack, combined with the fact that Clinton demonstrated to Osama bin Laden with the “Blackhawk Down” fiasco in Somalia  that the U.S. was just “a paper tiger,” and ripe for a massive attack.  That attack was planned, funded – and all the terrrorist assets were in the USA and even trained to fly in American pilot schools- during the Clinton misrule.  Further, because of Clinton’s disastrous gutting of the military and intelligence budgets at the very time that Osama bin Laden was preparing to attack us, America was both weak (militarily unprepared for attack) and blind (unable to detect the attack).

Between the massive recession caused by the Dotcom bubble collapse that occurred under Clinton, and the 9/11 attack which was planned, organized and prepared completely under Clinton’s watch, the United States faced a HUGE hole as Bush took office.

So if you want to blame Bush for Obama’s mess, the least you could do would be to have the decency to blame Clinton for Bush’s mess. But you’re not honest enough to do that.  Neither you, or your corrupt Democrat Party, or your mainstream media propaganda networks, have any integrity at all.  Republicans took responsibility and admitted fault for their overspending.  Democrats are like Cain in the Book of Genesis; they refuse to accept responsibility for anything no matter how guilty they are.

I also notice how you utterly fail to mention the gigantic role of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in the 2008 collapse:

https://startthinkingright.wordpress.com/2010/05/11/2009/07/08/biden-we-misread-the-economy-and-its-all-the-republicans-fault/

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were created by Democrats. It was perennially staffed with Democrats. It had the sole power to bundle mortgages into the “mortgage backed securites” and then sell those securities to the private market under the guise that they were government and therefore AAA. It got massively into subprime loans to literally piss into those mortgage backed securities even as it made it impossible to tell a good security from a bad one. It forced banks to make utterly STUPID loans that went belly-up.

Watch these videos to see that Fannie Mae was responsible, and Democrats were responsible for preventing ANY regulation at ALL on Fannie Mae: http://digitalartpress.wordpress.com/2009/03/22/video-proof-democrat-party-warned-responsible-for-fannie-mae-freddie-mac-economic-crisis-repost/

The mainstream media will never report the truth.  They are biased, dishonest, corrupt propagandists.  All we can do is keep presenting the facts in the only venue available that still accepts them.

So much of this “Obama saved us from going into a depression” nonsense was based on Keynesian assumptions which even the pro-European International Monetary Fund utterly rejects and in fact has debunked.  Obama has been using a “mangled multiplier” as his basis for the need for more government spending. On Obama’s and the Democrat Party’s distorted view, for every dollar the federal government spends, we would get a $1.55 “bang for our buck.” But it isn’t true.  And the disaster of Obama’s failed stimulus should prove that to any sentient creature. Unless you really think building tunnels for turtles, bridges to nowhere and studying cow flatulence is going to make America great. On the International Monetary Fund model, which just makes more sense in addition to being less ideologically biased, we only get back 70 cents for every dollar spent. See this article for the documentation on that, and check out this graph:

Obama has failed. He has failed badly. We are on the verge of a double dip recession that I suppose Obama will likewise blame on Bush even though it will be starting in the THIRD YEAR of Obama’s failed presidency.
