In the land of Unintended Consequences, Barack Obama is King. Yes my friends, the Community Organizer-in-Chief, on his march towards Emperor of the Universe, has come upon a number of obstacles he claims he had not foreseen. Of course he continues to blame that pesky ole George Bush.
I mean, who would ever envision resistance to the biggest spending Bill in history, when Congress was pressed by the White House to vote for it, BEFORE they had even read it. Gosh, who’da thunk it.
And who would have ever thought that Americans would be outraged when they discovered that the White House and Secretary of the Treasury were involved in the bonuses paid to AIG executives, after their collapse, but feigned shock and awe when the bonuses drew outrage from taxpayers? Boy did that ever blow the dust off the teleprompter.
And the Union Organizer-in-Chief didn’t understand that he was giving about 250 times more bailout money to bankers than to the auto workers. And the bankers aren’t even unionized. Whoa, how did this happen?
But the most outrageous faux pax was during the waning days of the campaign, when Obama was promising, yes ladies and gentlemen I said promising tax cuts for 95% of America, when he said, "you will not see any of your taxes increase one single dime." And this when all economic indicators were tanking--due to the mortgage meltdown--and Bush 43 was crafting the first $170 billion bailout for Wall Street… with no end in sight.
Meanwhile Obama was touting Universal Healthcare, a new power grid, his version the Hitler Youth Corps and the Brown Shirts along with an overhaul of the nation’s transportation infrastructure, and all without a hint of tax increases. Now however, Mr. Obama has pushed so many new spending measures that he is going to double in six months, what it has taken America, since Franklin Roosevelt, to accumulate.
So, it would not be a stretch to conclude that the Spend-A-Holic-in-Chief was lying through his pearly whites when he promised those tax breaks. But hey, that’s politics. America you bought him, you got him
