Does anybody really believe Obama when he says he will enter into a legislative duel with lobbyists? I picture the schoolyard brawl, where all the kids say, “Obama’s gonna fight the lobbyists and special interests at the back of the school, when school is out. Everybody be there.”
Obama tries to talk tough however:
Obama believes that his tough talk can convince the American people that he is serious about this. I don’t know about you, but in picking who I would want to help me in a fight, Obama would be way down on that list.
- Nancy Pelosi,
- Whoopi Goldberg,
- Barbara Streisand,
- and the sissy kid that lived down the block from me when I was a kid.
The idea that Obama will deal with lobbyists and special interest now, is about as smart as putting a screen door on a submarine. Memo to Obama: You’ve already been ripped off!
In the past sixty days, Obama has supported the passing of $700B of “unaccounted” funding for the financial services industry, tens of billions for the auto-industry, a $787B (let’s be honest, over a trillion dollars) “spendulus” plan, a new budget of $400B+ for operating costs through the remainder of the year, and has a $3.55T budget in the works.
The man has been in Washington for less than forty-five days, and he wants us to believe he has single-handedly changed the way those thieving bureaucrats work, and removed all the pork and earmarks from these massive spending plans. Are you convinced? Well I am convinced…that Obama is one silly Negro.
This is what happens, when you elect a no talent hack, who can do nothing but talk. Obama has and always will be the naïve, pie-in-the-sky dreamer. And he is so much a dreamer that when speaks he tries to convince himself of these blatant lies.
How could he possibly overlook the obvious pork and earmarks? Example: $88M to “study” whether or not the Coast Guard needs a new icebreaker. I say let’s just save ourselves $88M and buy one! Or maybe the $88M is to study whether they will need one, with all this “global warming” that is happening?
But my favorite is $1.2B for “youth activities”. Can you get any more unclear about the purpose of this money. First let’s study youth. Then let’s study their activities. This will help us to determine what “youth activities” to put the remaining $200B…in condoms! Oh that’s right, there is a provision for $400M to help prevent STDs already.
Does any of this sound rather “lobbyish or special-interesty” to you?
Here’s the wrap:
We are closing the gap alright. Since Obama’s election, the stock market has lost half its value. Obama has closed the gap between rich and poor by 50% and in less than 45 days. At this rate America will look like Bangladesh by summer.
As for the schoolyard fight, all the lobbyists and lookers-on are hiding behind the building snickering at Obama. Without even touching him, the lobbyists have him battered and bruised, with two black-eyes and bloody nose.
It’s pathetic to know that the person in charge of the country doesn’t even know his butt’s already been kicked.
That’s my rant!
