Idiot of the week?
Go drama queen! Barry O, America's princess, started an illegal war on Libya and thought it would give him a lift. But even with the media pimping 'win' on Libya, he's got, POLITICO reports, no bounce in the polling. That shouldn't be a surprise and Kat was noting in "The flat 'victory'" this week that as they went around speaking, there was no bounce for Barack. So the polling just reflects what she had already observed and noted.
And Barack's an idiot because he will pay for what he did. I believe in God. Jesus isn't going to give him a blank check. He may not answer on this earth, but you believe he's going to feel the pain in the after life.
Let me note this from Mike Whitney's "President Narcissus and the Faux 'Debt Crisis':"
After all, isn't Obama one of those men who has based his economic policy "on highly abstract theories... on assumptions which are contrary to the facts…" If not, then how do we explain why he's put "deficit reduction" above unemployment? As we've seen, unemployment is key to increasing demand, beefing up GDP, and putting money in the hands of people who will spend it. But Obama has given deficit reduction priority. Why?
It's because Obama is reading from a script that was written by Wall Street. That's why the recovery has failed and why 70 percent of the American people now feel the country is headed in the "wrong direction", because deficit reduction doesn't address the central problem, the unemployment crisis. In fact, the Budget Control Act of 2011 (which is the so-called budget ceiling agreement) effectively ties Obama's hands as far as initiating fiscal stimulus bills that would lower unemployment and put the economy back on track. The president is now legally bound to keep the economy in a protracted state of depression. "Hurrah" for the progressive executive who achieved in just 3 years what the farthest-right-wing loony never could have hoped for, the statutory strangulation of state. Booyah, Obama.
"4 more years! 4 more years!..."
Here's a clip from someone who knows a thing-or-two about how the economy actually works. This is from an article by economist James Galbraith:
"...Foggy rhetoric about “burdens” that will “fall on our children and grandchildren” sets the tone of discussion....But there isn’t, in fact, a “long-term deficit problem.” So long as interest rates stay below the growth rate, as they are, debt-to-GDP levels eventually stabilize and even decline. The notion that there is a big problem is pure propaganda based on a pseudo-debate....
The entire object of this propaganda campaign is to cripple government—including regulation and the courts—and to roll back Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid." ("Stop Panicking About Our Long-Term Deficit problem. We don't have one", James Galbraith, Truthout)
Barack was always a Ronald Reagan worshipper, he'd suck Ronnie's cock in public at the Jefferson Memorial if thought it would bring him back from the dead. He's nothing but a little Alex B. Keaton wanna-be. People should have paid attention because there is nothing left about Barack and now there is nothing left to the dream of hope and change.
