While Obama sacrifices and ‘finds’ TWENTY BILLION DOLLARS in spending cuts…. I’d say “WHAT?!!!” – but my editor yells at me when I get redundant. The hutzpah of this bunch, from the President right on down, is BREATHTAKING. With Democrats under challenge in states all over the union you would think that Congressional Democrats would understand that a highly motivated and IRATE electorate is watching their every move with the intensity of a laboratory technician studying a virulent microorganism. Good simile though. With Illinois, like Massachusetts, no longer a guaranteed lead-pipe cinch Democrat playground.
States all over the nation are experiencing the same transformation. California’s Senator Barbara Boxer is being challenged by former Congressman Tom Campbell (R). Tom has a comfortable lead on the GOP pack but get this… he is running only FOUR POINTS behind Babs in this West Coast liberal wonderland. For him to be this close early in the race does not bode well for Boxer. In the severely economically depressed Central Valley all GOP candidates are running ahead of her.
With the extreme left wing California Assembly about to fall upon Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s veto sword over the absolutely preposterous TWO HUNDRED BILLION DOLLAR California State Single Payer Health Care Bill now sitting in the Assembly, California with an almost 40 billion dollar budget shortfall and the state about to declare itself out of money again, voters are likely to come out of their self-induced stupor long enough to remember that it is Democrats that are doing all this to them and that probably won’t do Boxer much good either.
FIVE POINT SEVEN PERCENT GROWTH in the GDP… and over half of it attributed to inventory replenishment, most of that dependent on fiscal and monetary stimulus. Economist Nouriel Roubini, who predicted the banking crash and recession, stated that the second half of this year will fade to just 1.5 % growth as stimulus dollars decline and fade away WITH NO JOB GROWTH. Watch for Obama to trumpet TEMPORARY CENSUS JOBS as a spectacular INCREASE in employment. But then we’ve seen that he’ll do or say just about anything.
California Patriots should be pounding out the faxes, emails, phone calls, letters and visits to State Assembly members’ offices – remind them that what happened in Massachusetts could happen in California as well. Meanwhile Congressional Democrats WITHOUT a single Republican vote plunged this country ONE POINT NINE TRILLION DOLLARS FARTHER IN DEBT. Undoubtedly clearing the way for more Democrat drunken spending binges.
These people have to be stopped… It’s my job… it’s your job… IT’S OUR JOB!!
