Weekend Edition: It’s Always Somebody Elses Fault

Sunday, December 9th, 2012

So…Whose fault IS it anyway?

Seriously.

Whose fault???

When George W. Bush was the president, apparently, the economy was his fault.

Obama said so.

Obama told us back then that a half trillion dollar deficit was irresponsible.

Obama told us it was…”Unpatriotic.”

It was Bush’s fault.

Now, the economy under Obama is…Bush’s fault.

While Bush was operating with a half trillion dollar deficit, Obama has increased that deficit to $1.2 – $1.3 trillion dollars. Is the NEW deficit irresponsible? Is it…”Unpatriotic???”

Not according to Obama. He now wants unlimited and unchecked ability to raise the debt ceiling.

Whatever it was then, it’s not today but one thing remains unchanged. According to Obama, it’s Bush’s fault.

Last week, Bob Costas told the world that the murder/suicide involving Jovan Belcher was the fault of a “gun culture.”

Costas was alive, well and broadcasting back when Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman were murdered and O.J. Simpson stood trial but, did Costas blame THAT on a “knife culture???”

No…

Guns, according to most socialists, kill people but other inanimate objects…Don’t.

Tonight, during halftime, will Bob Costas blame yesterday’s death of Dallas Cowboy player Jerry Brown in an “alcohol culture” or on a “car culture???” Brown lost his life when a car, driven drunk by teammate Josh Brent flipped.

Whose fault is it?

Story Time with the Emperor

Monday, July 16th, 2012

“If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that.”

Funny…We didn’t hear THAT from Obama 4 years ago…did we?

Imagine a guy campaigning on THAT sentiment and actually winning a 1st term. Now…Imagine a guy campaigning on that sentiment for a 2nd term. Well, you don’t have to imagine it because that is exactly what Emperor Obama is doing.

Now…imagine this Emperor trying to woo the votes of small business owners with a line like that.

“Greetings small business owners. Ya know…it occurs to me that, if you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that.”

By the sweat of their brow, through trial and error, great ideas, through ground level grassroots marketing, after putting all they had into their business to get it off the ground, late nights, early mornings, no vacations and doing without, you are told by the Emperor that…

“If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that.”

Of course, that wasn’t the entire message.

“If you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own. I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there.  It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something…there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there.”

“If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”

What exactly DOES the Emperor MEAN by that?

Econ 101 for Useful Idiots

Saturday, January 14th, 2012

The middle class…we must do what we can for the middle class. That is the Obama mantra isn’t it? Build up the middle class.

Really, it’s class warfare. Liberals hate to hear that but that’s really what it is. That’s what so many conservatives say and we hear it often from almost all the GOP candidates.

In part it’s true. Class warfare. Pitting those who don’t have as much as other against those who have more.

That’s the basis for the whole “Occupy” movement.

At best, occupiers are useful idiots in the grand Obama scheme.

Why “At best?”

Because there is a lot more to the Obama scheme than class warfare. Let’s make this as simple as possible so even liberals can understand it.

What have been the clarion calls from Obama since 2008?

Share the wealth.

Hike taxes on the rich.

Both are meant to accomplish one thing. Take money from those who have more of it.

By saying “SHARE” Obama makes it seem as though those who have it should share it with those who don’t have as much. Sharing is good isn’t it? Aren’t we taught to share as children?

The problem is, Obama never says with whom those who have money should share it does he?
