Well, I hope, Janky Red, you realize this is not an Obama trashing thread.
It is not, because I am commenting from the middle, being neither left-wing, nor right-wing.
I am driving around town daily seeing the houses foreclosed on, seeing cars for sale everywhere, watching people dumpster-dive to pay their bills, and
all for what reason?
There was supposed to be some sort of alleged Stimulus Bill that was supposed to kick-start the economy, yet it was wasted giving to it to the
robber-barrons, car industry, and keeping us embroiled in two wars we do not need.
See, that's the thing, war usually is the fastest way to kick a failing economy in the keister, yet where is that happening with all the fall out of
N.A.F.T.A. still strangling our country.
If he truly wanted to do something to stimulate the economy, he would get N.A.F.T.A. repealed and make tax incentives for companies working within the
boundaries of the country that needs it right now, the United States.
Where is all the alleged money for small businesses as well?
No, you got me all wrong, I am just expressing my political opinion regarding the game of politics. I was trying to examine the playing field, future
plays, manuvers and options.
I am very disappointed with the man AND I ALSO detest the hard right, frankly I feel without a home... Obama took so much good will and pee pee'ed on
a simple set of
"objectives" that his supporters wanted achieved. At the same time the right is fairly
disgusting in their approach, many will wonder what is worse - "more of the same" (obama) or the alternative "more of the same" Commie, lazy
people are the ones without jobs, if you are hungry eat your hand, if you have cancer go to the emergency room, if its brown flush it down (GC),
ready, fire, aim and the patriotic stupor - spreading freedoms!
I don't know what is f-ing worse for me - Thats the rub for many of us - Obama is a Bush light of policy and a Dick supreme on the WTF is going on
front. But then we have the other side of the coin which is rather overt corporation before America (Obama but in all its naked splendor) crowd. Wrap
it in a flag and call anything that limits corporate dominance as RUSSIAN RED.
This dynamic is being fed obviously, but the patriotic crowd seems to welcome american distruction by letting the producer produce.
Obama has a rotten carrot and the right is only a stick, by next election that stick will be tapped together after smashing it across Obamas forehead.
The stick will be useless
because people will be desensitized to its presence.
So I do not like either or, or the option, as the alternative is just the in your face version of what Obama is wading into. Calling it socialism is
like calling Manson a mercy
killer - I ask if ANY of you have received a state check, bounds or any sort of steady revenue stream from this "socialism"? By mis labeling it to
reap the benefits of xenophobic reaction the right is now calling a dog a cat.
So how do you address the real issues of this presidency if you only deal in pulling heart strings? All those strings have been pulled already, the
framing is completely wrong, so there will not be any real coherent message to sell when it is time to run against him.
So I say again, IF this economy starts rolling again, Obama is in there for another four.
You fringe to far out and you will still lose the indies, they will fear the drastic shift, look to Obama who actually looks more centrist than what
people are calling him and then check the dow. I say centrist because he is behaving to the right of what I had expected. He has all but abandoned all
of his REAL american left tenets, but he is a socialist -
- its gonna be real hard to line these up without the good ol American
base minded, fear baiting.
The corporation gets fed either way, we foot the bill either way-
