Obama is simply unqualified to address the economy

Posted by Stephen on September 7, 2010

He needs a lesson in Personal Finance. Maybe Dave Ramsey could help him out. The simple fact of the matter is, if he weren’t already rich beyond middle class comprehension, Obama would be bankrupt. Then again, he probably wouldn’t follow the practices he is currently proposing to Congress.

Perhaps worse than his deplorable economic plan that does nothing more then add 50 billion dollars to a deficit that he has increased by nearly 6 trillion dollars in a year and a half is his attempt to manipulate the American people into believing that his failures as President are the fault of the minority party; the Republicans.

So, let’s get this straight; we live in a democratically elected representative government right? Obama is a Democrat right? The House is controlled by Democrats right? The Senate is controlled by Democrats right? One last question; Obama is trying to say that even though they are in the majority, it’s the minority’s fault he can’t get a bill passed in Congress…right? Wow, the Presidency has deteriorated to middle to late 19th century lows.

Obama has no plan, no clue, and he provides no hope to a country he manipulated into believing he was the next coming of Abe Lincoln, JFK, or a host of other famous names he used to dizzy the heads exhausted and naive voters.

He was going to be the King of Change, and change is exactly what he has brought. He pushes a socialist agenda while driving our debt to historic proportions all the while blaming anyone he possibly can; starting with former President Bush. It is pathetic to watch and dangerous to witness.

Thankfully, Republicans made it clear that Obama should not expect any help from them.

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky said the plan “should be met with justifiable skepticism.” He said it would raise taxes while Americans are “still looking for the ‘shovel-ready’ jobs they were promised more than a year ago” in the $814 billion economic stimulus measure.

The House Republican leader, John Boehner of Ohio, added “We don’t need more government ‘stimulus’ spending. We need to end Washington Democrats’ out-of-control spending spree, stop their tax hikes, and create jobs by eliminating the job-killing uncertainty that is hampering our small businesses.”

Sadly, Obama continues to believe that the only place jobs can be created are within the halls of the federal government. His newest brainstorm consists of 50 billion tax payer dollars toward the creation of government jobs to repair and rebuild roadways across America.

Government jobs created with the people’s money instead of private sector jobs created through investment and expansion that builds on itself exponentially is what any good socialist supports, and make no mistake about it-Barack Obama is a Socialist.

If change is what Obama wants, let us hope that his address is the first change the American people can help him with.
