He and his fellow power drunk cronies, Reid, Pelosi, Franks, Hoyer, Dodd, Waxman, and the not so heavenly host of other Democrats persist in blaming everyone but themselves for the dismal economic mess we are wallowing in. But, yesterday, Obama came down hard on the banking industry telling them to make more loans, while at the same time federal regulators, czars, and overseers have a stranglehold on the entire nation. I remember when our first black president, Bill Clinton, did the same with the mortgage industry by threatening reprisals if they didn't make loans to unqualified applicants who were part of the great Democrat plan aimed at social engineering. Now, those responsible for the lack of oversight at Fannie Mae, and Freddie Mac, (government run programs providing direct competition to private institutions - but using taxpayer money) just can't recall they had any part in doing so. These irresponsible actions by the Democrats led directly to the collapse of the mortgage industry and Wall Street we faced at the end of the Bush administration. Bush was forced into an alliance with those responsible, to include Senator Barack Hussein Obama, in order to avoid a catastrophic collapse of the economy in passing the TARP resolution. The Democrat reaction was then to blame Bush for the collapse with loud ranting and allegations of ineptness in order to draw the country's attention away from the real culprits. His lordship has continued with this hackneyed rhetoric in every speech he has given since ascending the throne. To the majority of his constituents, radicals, labor leaders, brain dead academics, and those who remain in blissful ignorance, it may fly, but to any citizen with the ability to see beyond some single issue and focus on the basics of our nation's success, it is pure bunk.
We need to put the brakes on big time. We cannot afford to spend one more dime of hard earned taxpayer funds for ridiculous programs. I get angry to the point of wanting to be present, so I can dough pop some of these moronic power drunk legislators, when they are asked about the constitutionality of their current proposed and recently passed legislation. They smugly turn up their noses and condescendingly laugh at the thought that they, the almighty majority, should be bothered by the U. S. Constitution. Senator Mary L. Landrieu, (D-LA), whose vote on the health care bill was recently bought with a $100,000,000.00 earmark, said when asked the question that, the Senate has constitutional lawyers to answer those questions. Apparently they are on vacation, or the Democrat majorities in the Senate and House are not listening to them either. They took an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic. What happens when they are the majority and enemies of the United States at the same time? I can tell you, exactly what we are experiencing today.
I am sick of their brazen lies. This country belongs to its voting citizens and not to those for whom they vote.
"[A] wise and frugal government ... shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government." --Thomas Jefferson
"Our Constitution was made for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for the governance of any others."
