President Obama targeted Republicans who are not supportive of his stimulus plan yesterday claiming that failure to pass his bill would force the U.S. economy to face “catastrophe”. Unfortunately, we already in full catastrophe mode which is defined a a state of distress, calamity and destruction.
Democrats hold a majority in both the House and Senate, but have failed to capture the votes necessary to pass the current stimulus plan. This is the impetus that motivated President Obama to turn up the heat on Congress by taking full aim at critics of his plan.
President Obama is proving himself to be another tax and spend liberal democrat espousing claims today that “we can’t embrace the losing formula that offers more tax cuts…” Meanwhile Americans were mistakenly thinking tax cuts would be a good idea given the current recession.
It is predicted that President Obama plans to use unemployment statistics as a catalyst to convince Congress to pass his stimulus plan. Nevertheless, the Associated Press reports that analysts predict up to 3 million jobs will vanish this year regardless of whether the stimulus plan passes or not.
Despite the $700 billion financial industry bailout, foreclosures are skyrocketing, home prices are sinking, consumers are having difficulty obtaining financial loans and Wall Street is flailing daily.
So, do we print (uh I mean spend) more money? As the Church Lady would say, “how conveeenient”!
The definition of mania is a state of euphoria, racing thoughts, talkativeness, and risk taking. Sound familiar? The key phrase here is: a newly elected politician grasping at straws.
This ridiculous “Obama Stimulus Mania” makes me feel like I am in a Stephen King movie like Misery where Obama is playing Kathy Bates as I represent ailing Americans watching the sledgehamer coming down on my ankles while saying “I’m your #1 fan”.
Until next time,
Red Stick Republican
