SEARCH BLOG: OBAMA and GOVERNMENT.
Those who were not fooled can hardly have the satisfaction of saying "I told you so" because there is no satisfaction where we are headed. The stock market has fallen over 7% in one month. For you union types, that means your pension funds have taken a nasty hit... which you are cheering on because in your minds that hurts "Wall Street." The GOP is making nice with the president. For you conservatives, that means 4 more years of the 4 years just finished. The EPA and courts are playing havoc with the energy market which means that 100% of the voters will face significantly higher energy costs over the next four years.
How could those 51%-ers have voted for the captain of the shipwreck? Victor Hansen at the National Review has his own thesis on that score.
Coincidentally, right after the election we heard that Iran had attacked a U.S. drone in international waters. [so much for negotiating with our best new friends in the Middle East]
Coincidentally, we just learned that new food-stamp numbers were “delayed” and that millions more became new recipients in the months before the election. [so much for those three "summers of recovery".]
Coincidentally, we now gather that the federal relief effort following Hurricane Sandy was not so smooth, even as New Jersey governor Chris Christie and Barack Obama high-fived it. Instead, in Katrina-like fashion, tens of thousands are still without power or shelter two weeks after the storm. [so much for the new and improved version of federal government.]
Coincidentally, we now learn that Obama’s plan of letting tax rates increase for the “fat cat” 2 percent who make over $250,000 a year would not even add enough new revenue to cover 10 percent of the annual deficit. How he would get the other 90 percent in cuts, we are never told. [so much for "fair sharing".]
Coincidentally, we now learn that the vaunted DREAM Act would at most cover only about 10 percent to 20 percent of illegal immigrants. As part of the bargain, does Obama have a post-election Un-DREAM Act to deport the other 80 percent who do not qualify since either they just recently arrived in America, are not working, are not in school or the military, are on public assistance, or have a criminal record? [so much for addressing the "social justice" issue of not enforcing our sovereign borders.]
Coincidentally, now that the election is over, the scandal over the killings of Americans in Libya seems warranted because of the abject failure to heed pleas for more security before the attack and assistance during it. And the scandal is about more than just the cover-up of fabricating an absurd myth of protesters mad over a two-month-old video — just happening to show up on the anniversary of 9/11 with machine guns and rockets. [so much for truth.]"Coincidentally" is the conglomeration of a variety of left-leaning media spinners that found it convenient to distort or delay news that might have been considered less-than-desirable despite their actions being less-than-truthful or less-than-ethical.
