When the wild-eyed, foaming-at-the-mouth, mesmerized sheeple stared with tingling love at the self-styled (and media-annointed) 'Messiah' this past summer, cooing "Obaaaaahhhma! Obaaaaaahhma!", did they realize how devoid of anything resembling real-world experience this guy really is? Did they have a clue that he would not appoint to his cabinet even one person who had ever had a real job or met a payroll? Did they even consider that high-sounding rhetoric is no substitute for actual knowledge?
But Obama has not disappointed, I'll give him that. He told us he would govern as a socialist and he has proceeded at breakneck speed to do just that. Besides apologizing to the world for our capitalistic economic system, which has made the USA the envy of the world, and groveling to every puffed-up, tinpot piece of dictatorial garbage out there, Messiah slammed through bailout after bailout after bailout. His proposed budget is four times any previous administration's. Obama's stated reason for this tsunami of taxpayer-funded spending was clear: "It is only government that can break the vicious cycle (of failing businesses)." Barak uttered this infamous quote not long into his administration, thus signaling that he would soon be taking ownership and control of the banking industry and the auto industry.
Never mind that the present economic crisis was caused by the Clinton administration insisting that banks lend mortgage money to no-hopers who would never have a hope of paying it back. That little fact is way too embarrassing to remember, so we'll just spin it away, okay? (Go away, little fact! Take your ugly face to outer space, never to be mentioned again!)
But gee, sheeple! There seems to be a problem in Obama nirvana. It's now quite inescapable, despite the media's swooning love affair with His Shining Brightness. Your guy doesn't know everything after all! I know, I know, that's just some right-wing extremist talking, and what do we know anyway, we who insist upon dealing in facts. Well, consider this quote from Lord Obama the Merciful himself, delivered just today. According to Bloomberg News Service, His Amazingness revealed the following nugget of raw truth:
"President Barack Obama, calling current deficit spending 'unsustainable,' warned of skyrocketing interest rates for consumers if the U.S. continues to finance government by borrowing from other countries. 'We can’t keep on just borrowing from China,' Obama said at a town-hall meeting in Rio Rancho, New Mexico, outside Albuquerque. 'We have to pay interest on that debt, and that means we are mortgaging our children’s future with more and more debt.'
What incredible insight, Your Stupendousness! Of course, Rush and Sean and Laura and Bill and Glenn have been saying that EVERY DAY since your inauguration! But the sheeple will allow you to claim it as your own, so go ahead. Copyright it.
So now the sheeple have something new to consider. Obamamaniacs, here's a question for you to mull over: how will His Incredible Insightfulness blame all this profligate spending, which threatens your children and grandchildren to certain poverty, on the Bush administration? Think hard, children. You can spin this one if you really try.
My friends, I'll make a prediction, and you heard it here first: within a year, you'll see far less Obama bumper stickers than you see now. In their place will be faded paint and scratch marks. Hint: don't ask the car owner where the bumper sticker went. You might encounter a rather sullen and angry response.
