Obama more interested in Security Spending than Fixing the Economy?

It seems to me, that the White House circus and it's traveling entourage of clowns are focusing more on war, security and other things, rather than more pressing issues like really really really trying to fix the economy. What seems more important to them seems to be so called "security" issues.

Are they really so afraid of their own shadows? Or is it yet more excuses to spend more tax payer money on projects that get no bid competitions; like Blackwater, Haliburton, etc)

So they pumped trillions into the economy. Did they truly expect it to fix anything? Or did they do it because during this crisis, it would be easier to steal in plain sight?

They just keep throwing money into the hole saying it's doing this or that; basically that its keeping everything afloat. However, the solution is a short term one which in the end can only bring hyper inflation and lower standards of living for the common folk.

Meanwhile, the companies and individuals that are benefiting from the trillions are simply putting the cash off-shore for when the SHTF.

The drive for increased security in the "homeland" should be a wakeup call to everyone.

Washington is expecting the SHTF. Why else would they be going so nuts about homeland security? To protect their interests.

In the near future don't be surprised to see states or regions within the US, splinter off into fifedoms ruled by the have's.

It's all a circus, and the clowns change every 4 years. That is all what it is, entertainment. We are paying to watch was they get richer from it. Of course Obama doesn't care about fixing anything, he's the photo op president, he's more concerned about looking good and being the cool guy, but really he is just playing his political hand. We're the ones that allowed to be the current return of jesus. They don't care about us, we are just sheep to them. If government truely did care about the people, then we would be living in a a happier, prosperious country with little government involvement. But why should they give up such control? They love it too much.

This is so true, Notice how often the seats of power change congress very little. How many people who are in congress are actually poor to middle class? The rich protect the rich will we sit by and watch our kids wealth and future go away, we need a good strong third party canidate.

No. If he was really interested in security then he'd be building a border wall. Instead, he stopped construction on the border fence that's going up. So no .. he doesn't give a rats backend about our security.

Neither did Bush43, Clinton, Bush41, etc etc

If any of them did, they'd have built a nice tall thick wall along our southern border. Not only did Obama not do this .. he stopped the fence that has already been started.
