As If I Wasn't Mad Enough Yesterday?

Ok, I was going to let it rest after my rather long winded tirade yesterday, but of course the morons known as the Obama administration had to open their mouths! So here we go again!

On ABC, David Axelrod had to once again spit in the face of Justice Alito. This from Fox, but I did in fact see this today on ABC.

“A top White House adviser says it's gotten to the point where almost any unusual reaction or outburst to a speech by President Barack Obama in the House chamber isn't really that unusual. Obama aide David Axelrod was talking about Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito's reaction to Obama's State of the Union address last week. The justice made a dismissive face, shook his head repeatedly and appeared to mouth the words "not true" or possibly "simply not true" when Obama criticized the high court over a campaign finance ruling . Axelrod says that "in this weird political season, we have become accustomed to unusual outbursts" in the House during presidential speeches.”

So what is it with these clowns? First, the direct insult was leveled by the president and directed at the justices. And for what? A cheap thrill for the Democrats? No! This was done to make it clear to everyone, our sad sack excuse of a president is above the law! In turn, Justice Alito shook his head and mouthed “not true”. This is an unusual outburst? What is unusual is that the out of touch, naive and apparently clueless ex law professor had the veracity to not only openly insult the guests of Congress openly, but also brazenly LIE! Excuse me, but if that was me sitting there taking that kind of abuse, I would probably want to get up and bitch slap the classless bastard. I have to admire the restraint actually shown by Justice Alito.

Just think how crass this really was. Stated to openly embarrass the justices, who’s only problem (in Bozo’s eyes) was that they in fact made the correct decision under our laws. This was not only uncalled for, but stepped way over the line as to the Separation of Powers. When the President of the United States not only apparently doesn’t understand the laws of the land, but then openly lies to the American public, then in turn sends out his Anti-American idealistic leftist radical mouthpieces to shift the spotlight off his stupidity, it is indeed a sad day for our country.

Next topic. The Inspector General issued a report today detailing, among other things, that we are poised for another huge financial crisis if the proper steps are not taken. Again, from Fox but on other new s sites:

“The inspector general's report details stonewalling by the Treasury Department over a recommendation that walls be built between managers of the public-private investment program, which uses taxpayer cash to buy bad assets, and employees of the fund management companies which sell the toxic assets. Barofsky's report outlined 77 cases of possible criminal and civil fraud, including crimes of tax evasion, insider trading, mortgage lending and payment collection, false statements and public corruption.
The problems that led to the last financial crisis have not yet been addressed, and in some cases have grown worse, says Neil Barofsky, the special inspector general for the trouble asset relief program, or TARP. The quarterly report to Congress was released Sunday.The Federal Reserve is spending $1.25 trillion to hold down mortgage rates, and millions of homeowners have refinanced at lower rates.
"The government has stepped in where the private players have gone away," Barofsky said in an interview. "If we take government resources and replace that market without addressing the serious (underlying) concerns, there really is a risk of" artificially pushing up home prices in the coming years.
The report warned that these supports mean the government "has done more than simply support the mortgage market, in many ways it has become the mortgage market, with the taxpayer shouldering the risk that had once been borne by the private investor." Barofsky's report echoed concerns raised by housing experts in recent months, as home sales and prices rebounded. They warn that the primary reason for the turnaround last year has been billions of dollars in federal spending to lower mortgage rates and prop up demand.
Once that spigot of cash is turned off, they caution, the market will be vulnerable to a dramatic turn for the worse. Daniel Alpert, managing partner of investment bank Westwood Capital, wrote in a report that national home prices are bound to fall 8 to 10 percent below the lows of last spring.”

This is not only scary stuff, but it is exactly what every financial expert with an ounce of common sense has been saying for quite sometime! And what are we getting? More deficits!

Then we have the 3.8 trillion dollar proposed budget! He’ll increase financing for education and for civilian research programs by 6%, and provide cash strapped states with another 25 billion. Yet he is going to impose a freeze on domestic spending not related to national security or entitlement programs. The budget includes increases for the National Institutes of Health, The National Science Foundation and the Energy Department. It cuts funds to the Army Corp of engineers and NASA.

In the same vein, we get this! “President Barack Obama said Saturday that trimming budget deficits is as important as creating jobs, his top domestic priority this year, to continue the economic recovery that appears under way.”

Earth to Obama! Earth to Obama! Get this straight. You are adding another 1.2 trillion to an already deficit ridden government that cannot pay it’s bills! Take the NASA thing. You say job creation is everything and yet you are going to cost thousands of jobs with those cuts. You’re going to increase spending on domestic programs while at the same time saying you are freezing spending.

What really gets me is I’m still trying to figure out exactly what planet the main electorate was on with their space cadet of a leader. He and his advisors are way out beyond La La Land! They aren’t even in Never Never Land! Lies, arrogance, a lack of understanding as to our principles and ideals (although in my mind, it’s ideology, not lack of understanding) and a complete disregard for the electorate all show us one thing. This president is nothing other then another would be leftist dictator. He is actively destroying our country’s very foundation and sneering at us in the process. And now that we know for sure he has absolutely no respect for the Law of the Land, we need to be more vigilant then ever in our over 200 year history.


  1. Interesting analysis. I hope you were just as strident during the previous administration when we decided to fight a war on two fronts -- and cut taxes.

  2. Anonymous,

    For what it is worth, I believe in lower taxes. It has been proven without a doubt that lower taxes raise result in higher revenues to the Treasury. The problem is out of control spending that has already rendered this country bankrupt and financially in a worse position then the Weirmarch or Argentina were when they went into hyper-inflation. I do not believe in the majority of the entitlement progrmas. I do believe in helping the helpless, but not the folks with the "you owe me mentality" And yes, I was as strident against some of the previous administration's policies, especially out of control spending.

    As to the wars, I'm not happy with the way they have been conducted. However, I deeply believe that when there is an entity that has vowed to destroy you, you eradicate it and protect your people. I do not believe for one instant you can negotiate with hard core ideologues. This is true with Radical so called fundamentalists as well as hard core leftists as we now have as this president's advisors.

    As history has proven time and again, radicals negotiiate to buy time. They ignore treaties and so on. This is no different today then it was when Chamberlain tried to negotiate with Nazi Germany.

    Again, just my opinion. Thank you for your comment. I much appreciate the discuaaion and debate rather then the rancor found on most of the news sites.
