I think I may be entering into campaign mode already. Here’s where we are, and I’m wondering, if the shoe were on the other foot, would Leftists be acting so sanguine about our economic and political situation?
This Democrat President has presided over the doubling of the national debt, accumulating more in three years than all the previous presidents combined. If this were a Republican president, would this be acceptable?
This president has offered economic proposals doubling the debt in the next 10 years. If this was a Republican president, would this be acceptable?
This president sued a state (
) about a law (SB1070) that he
disagreed with. Neither he nor his Attorney General had ever read the law. If
this were a Republican president, would this be acceptable? Arizona
This Democrat president joined a lawsuit with a foreign country (
Mexico) to force
them ( )
to allow illegal immigration into their state. If this were a Republican
president, would it be acceptable? Arizona
This president and his wife have spent $millions on vacations. If this were a Republican president, would it be acceptable? (GW used to go to his ranch and do ranch work, and look at the grief he got.)
This president has hired lobbyists after railing against them, Wall Street investment millionaires after railing against them, tax cheats after railing against them. If a Republican president had shown anger and distain against groups of people, then hired them, would it be acceptable?
This president failed to respond to massive flooding in the
Midwest. More people died and were left homeless than the
aftermath of Katrina. If it were a Republican president, would this be
acceptable? (Despite all the lies, the Bush administration did respond in the
aftermath of Katrina, and it was the Gov and Mayor that blew it.)
This president has hired 32 people (czars) to run various agencies, created by him, that weren’t vetted nor are monitored by Congress, but answer to him and him only. If this were a Republican president, would it be acceptable?
Unemployment is at 8.2% and we’re told to accept it as the “new norm”. If this were a Republican president, would 8.2% of the population unable to find work be acceptable? (There was howling when we reached 5.2% under a Republican president.)
Democrats passed a bill, near midnight on Christmas Eve, carrying no votes from the opposition Party. Half the citizens of the country opposed it. The speaker of the house said they have to pass the bill to see what’s in it. If Republicans had done this, would it have been acceptable?
This president closed down offshore drilling illegally. He’s closing down the mining industry. He shut down the nuclear power industry. He shut down getting oil piped down from
. If a Republican president
shut down whole industries, driving up the costs of energy to citizens, would
it be acceptable? Canada
This Democrat president sold guns to Mexican cartels (Operation Fast and Furious) that resulted in lots of dead Mexicans, robbery and rape, plus a US Agent murdered. If a Republican president had done this, would it have been acceptable?
This president spent $billions on green energy programs and companies, all donators to him and his political Party. If a Republican president had spent $billions on a specific industry that both went bankrupt and funneled those tax dollars back to his campaign coffers, would it have been acceptable?
If the credit rating of the
had been downgraded
for the first time in our history, and the president had been a Republican, would
it have been so acceptable? United States
Corruption, lies, deceit, the destruction of the economy, $trillions of added debt, massive unemployment (actually closer to 17% than 10%) reduced credit rating, $740 billion stimulus for “shovel ready jobs” that mostly went to pay state union employees that pay the dues that go back to the Democrat Party, lavish White House parties and vacations, closing down vast sections of the energy industry that actually produces, and sending $billions to proven failed “green” industries that sent those tax payer dollars back to the Democrat Party.
This is a miserable record by any measure, but is acceptable to about half the citizens, the Democrat Party, Communists, Socialists, and Leftists of any stripe.
Things are bad.
