President Obama gave a speech today. (Must be a day that ends in “y.”)
His speech was about how he was going to really fix this economy now that Obamacare is sucking all the life out of his second term.
The media was falling all over each other to cover it. Look at this first paragraph from Reuters:
Seeking to recover from the bungled rollout of his healthcare reforms, President Barack Obama went back to basics on Wednesday with a renewed focus on government policies that benefit the struggling poor and middle classes.
Notice that they wrote “policies that benefit the…,” not “policies he say benefit” or “policies he believes” or “policies Democrats believe.”
Nope, they just carry the water, like good propagandists.
Meanwhile, no one is asking why, after five years in the White House, President Obama is still trying to fix the economy?
The income gap he’s so concerned about grew four times faster under him than it did under Bush.
He’s spent more money than not only any other president, not more than all the other president combined, but any person in WORLD HISTORY in his effort to fix things like John Maynard Keynes would have done.
And after five years, he’s still promising to make it all better.
Because rather than compromise on anything, he’s spent every opportunity since voters tossed the Democracts out of power in the House blaming everything on Republicans. And his supporters are all too happy to join in.
Deficit spending? That wouldn’t have happened if it wasn’t for two unfunded wars, which were illegal, by the way.
Unemployment? Republicans won’t pass Obama’s jobs bill. Never mind all those jobs bills sitting on Harry Reid’s desk. Look at the Republicans!
For two years, from 2008 to 2010, the lunatics were running the asylum, and they could do whatever they wanted.
And it all failed.
Remember when Biden announced 2010 would be the “Summer of Recovery?”
It wasn’t. Why?
The Tea Party, of course.
The fact is, if leftist policies worked, the Republicans wouldn’t have won in 2010, people wouldn’t be losing their insurance and Obama wouldn’t be talking about the need to raise the minimum wage…again.
It’s half a decade of failure, disguised as “a renewed focus.”
The most factual line of coverage on this speech I read came from NPR, and it was unintentional, but true nontheless.
Here it is:
The president didn’t propose any new measures in his speech.
Exactly. There was nothing new. It was the same failed ideas we’ve heard for decades.
A Surge, essentially, in the War on Poverty.
All they need is just a little more government and they can make it all better.
