Bill Clinton, the ultimate spinmeister gets it wrong …
"President Obama started with a much weaker economy than I did. Listen to me now: No president, not me, not any of my predecessors, no one could have fully repaired all the damage that he found in just four years." ~ Bill Clinton
The real truth is more like …
NO PRESIDENT, PERHAPS WITH THE EXCEPTION OF JIMMY CARTER OR FDR, HAS TAKEN A BAD SITUATION AND MADE IT MUCH, MUCH WORSE – AND CREATED SO MUCH NEEDLESS DAMAGE TO THE UNITED STATES ECONOMY.”
NO PRESIDENT HAS SQUANDERED BILLIONS ON “GREEN ENERGY” – A HOAX DRIVEN BY AN UNPROVEN HYPOTHESIS DESIGNED TO LINE THE POCKETS OF POLITICAL SPECIAL INTERESTS AND MAJOR CONTRIBUTORS.
ONE WOULD HAVE EXPECTED TO SEE SOLID TREND REVERSALS – SIGNS OF A RECOVERY – IN THE FIRST TWO YEARS WHEN OBAMA CONTROLLED THE PRESIDENCY, THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES AND THE SENATE.
BUT, NO, HE SQUANDERED THAT PRECIOUS POLITICAL CAPITAL – NOT ON AMERICA’S AILING ECONOMY – BUT ON PASSING OBAMACARE AS A UNILATERAL DEMOCRAT INITIATIVE. SO ODIOUS, THAT THE CRITICAL VOTES NEEDED TO BE OBTAIN FROM FELLOW DEMOCRATS WITH BRIBES AND EXEMPTIONS.
AND ON CLOSER INSPECTION, OBAMACARE DIGS THE HOLE IN AMERICA’S ECONOMY DEEPER – MORE TAXES, MORE CENTRALIZED PLANNING, MORE FEAR, UNCERTAINTY AND DOUBT.
But worst of all …
THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA HAS ABANDONED ALL SENSE OF JOURNALISTIC ETHICS AND FAILS TO REPORT – OR UNDER-REPORTS – THE TRUTH ABOUT OBAMA AND HIS FELLOW TRAVELERS WHO ARE HELL-BENT IN THE TASK OF BRINGING SOCIALISM TO AMERICA AS THEY DESTROY AMERICAN EXCEPTIONALISM, INNOVATION AND INDIVIDUALISM.
THERE IS NO “SPEAKING TRUTH TO POWER.” THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA HAS GONE CORPORATE AND IS SUCKING ABOUT FOR SUBSIDIES AND GOVERNMENT ADVERTISING REVENUE TO SHORE-UP THEIR DECAYING BUSINESS MODEL IN THE AGE OF THE INTERNET.
THE MOST EGREGIOUS EXAMPLE WAS THE GENERAL ELECTRIC-OWNED NBC FRANCHISE WHOSE JOURNALISTS AND COMMENTATORS LEFT LITTLE DOUBT ABOUT THEIR ALLEGIANCE. ESPECIALLY AS PARENT CORPORATION, GENERAL ELECTRIC, WAS SUCKING UP GRANTS, SUBSIDIES AND FAT GOVERNMENT CONTRACTS. THE HEAD OF GENERAL ELECTRIC, JEFF IMMELT, FETED AS THE HEAD OF OBAMA’S JOBS COUNSEL WHILE HE WAS OUTSOURCING AMERICAN JOBS TO CHINA.
Tonight’s Town Hall Meeting …
While these are real people, ostensibly selected from the ranks of “undecided voters,” their stories and the debate participant’s time-constrained comments are just part of the political theatre – a dog and pony show designed to convince the American public that they actually have a say in the election.
With the exception of a few swing states, your vote has been anticipate, calculated and factored into the political equation by both parties. If you are here, as I am, in California, your vote is little more than a protest – reducing the margin by which Obama will carry the State. Something which normally suppresses voter turnout and leaves the arena to the policy wants and diehard political junkies.
But, you have a chance to surprise everyone – the candidates, the political parties and, of course, the media. You can turn out in vast numbers and vote the incumbents from office. Proving a new beginning and sending a message to the political class that it is time you recognize that “We the People” are demanding honest representation in our interests.
Unfortunately, as my best friend Al often says, “You’re dreaming – nobody cares.” But I am optimistic – tell your friends to get out the vote. Throw the bums out of office. Elect some new people – and then throw them out of office if they fail to deliver.
Stand up for yourself, your family, your friends and your community – get out the vote. Bring true hope and change back to America.
