Americans what will we get for Christmas? Here’s an excerpt from Ronald Reagan’s “To Restore America Speech.”
"No one who lived through the Great Depression can ever look upon an unemployed person with anything but compassion. To me, there is no greater tragedy than a breadwinner willing to work, with a job skill but unable to find a market for that job skill.
Back in those dark depression days I saw my father on a Christmas Eve open what he thought was a Christmas greeting from his boss. Instead, it was the blue slip telling him he no longer had a job. The memory of him sitting there holding that slip of paper and then saying in a half whisper, 'That's quite a Christmas present,' it will stay with me as long as I live."
In 2009 Obama said if he doesn’t turn the economy around, then he’s going to be a one term President. Today, he just pulled a Joe Biden gaffe and said the economy isn’t any better then it was three years ago. Guess we can assume he’s a one term reject!
Joe Biden isn’t going to be Obama’s scapegoat; he said the bad economy belongs to Obama. Joe has his moments of letting it all hang out and he’s plumb tired of lying to Americans about unemployment and the state of our economy. I imagine Joe has been confined to his room and sent to bed without dinner after that bit of honesty.
David Plouffe must be suffering from fatigue or is losing his marbles, for he basically says, that Americans won’t base their vote in 2012 on the unemployment rate. David if the unemployment rate hovers around 9.2 % or higher – that would mean over 14 million Americans are still unemployed.
Plouffe reminds me of Jimmy Carter, when Carter said in an interview with Playboy that there were times he had “lust in his heart” for women. Plouffe has “lust in his heart” for the all might dollar. As long as Obama keeps handing him the money, he’ll play the Obama game.
David Axelrod struggles for words and finally says reelection for Obama is a “Titanic Struggle.” David’s excuse is pretty much like Obama’s, when Obama blamed the weather. Weather seems to be the common denominator; Axelrod said the wind isn’t at Obama’s back. So much for the wind!
Warren Buffet dropped Obama on his head, saying he didn’t mean all wealthy people should be taxed; Warren mentioned that only about 50,000 out of 310 million people were in the ultra rich class. So Obama’s speech writers quickly removed Buffet from Obama’s speeches. Warren doesn’t like to be misquoted!
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Majority Whip Dick Durbin, aren’t happy campers either. Harry and Dick hate to be caught with their pants down - they remember Obama’s famous budget from last spring that not one Democrat voted for and they know Obama’s job plan is just another dud. Harry and Dick are tired of having egg on their face.
The moderate Senate Democrats are jumping ship probably because they realize Obama’s strategy to use class warfare will bite them in the fanny before the sun sets on 2012. The Democrats are having a lot of sleepless nights trying to figure out their next moves; (1) Is it too late to nominate a candidate for the 2012 election, (2) Will the unemployment rate keep rising and, (3) How can you support a President, who can’t lead a cow out of the cow pasture?
Obama’s “Rules for Radicals” have backfired; he’s distracted and divided his Democratic base. His speeches are like old worn out rags flapping in the wind. His trusty old teleprompter has lost its punch. In three short years, he’s worn out his welcome – people are tired of his political rhetoric and his false promises.
