Evidence of the astonishing incompetence of the Obama administration continues to roll in.
The Obama administration will go down as one of the most hapless and incompetent in history. It is evident that Obama and the people he surrounds himself with are Academians and don’t understand one iota about running anything. Obama’s unsteady journey began with the stimulus package. One-third of the money went to public employee union members and other supporter unions like the SEIU. Billions went to green energy loans like Solyndra, a major contributor’s company obviously falling on hard times. The employee showers were the best part of the company. Solyndra was only the first Green company to waste government money. The government racked up billions of dollars in bad debt trying over and over to prop up a losing industry. The definition of insanity is to do the same thing over and over expecting to get a different result. Shoot yourself in the foot too many times, and you run out of toes.
In 2010, one of President Obama’s liberal cheerleaders, Nancy Pelosi, told her fellow legislators “you have to pass the bill to find out what’s in it.” Congress passed the bill without one Republican vote, and Obama was ecstatic to sign it. He has already said that his administration will not enforce the employer mandate, will not verify eligibility for insurance subsidies, and will not require employer-provided policies to cap employees’ out-of-pocket costs.
Evidently the Constitution’s requirement that the president faithfully execute the laws set forth by Congress apparently does not apply to Barack Hussein Obama, who in his infinite incompetence and ineptness does not realize that he is the president of all the people, not just his far left base. He had the gall to say that Obamacare was the result of a bipartisan vote. He lied; and everyone on the left swore to it, including the liberal media. Now that it is in place, everyone is having a hard time accepting its provisions. In every corner of the country, you hear liberal politicians saying “we didn’t know that was a part of the bill.” Of course, they didn’t know because they didn’t read it.
Do you remember Obama saying that every piece of legislation would be made available for 72 hours before it is taken up by the Congress for a vote. When was the last time you saw a piece of legislation on the government web site? Obamacare is now the law of the land; yet the president is looking for ways to circumvent implementing the very law he signed with such fanfare in 2010. Every Friday, we hear that the Obamacare administrators are constantly missing deadlines.
As each day goes by, more and more doubt is cast on the ability of the Obama administration to carry out its duties as prescribed under the law. There are more exceptions and waivers to this law than any other law in history. That should tell you something about the competence and honesty of the people in the Obama administration, starting with the IRS and ending with the Justice Department. Everywhere you turn, Liberals are stonewalling, trying to get one part or another of the law squashed.
When do the American people say enough is enough?
Everything with the Democrats and liberals is how people feel. I wonder how people felt in the 60′s when the Democrats were fighting to make sure that blacks never got the right to equal representation under the law. Or how our brave soldiers returning from Viet Nam felt when Democratic anti-war agitators like John Kerry spit on them and called them murderers and traitors. Which party really cares about the poor and downtrodden? If you answered the Republican Party you are right. The party that fought to free the blacks from the vestiges of slavery! The party that did the most to put poor head of households to work so they could support their families! The party that pulled the country back from the brink of a Depression, resulting in the most robust economic recovery in history that yielded a Government surplus for the next 15 years.
The Democratic Party that feels your pain is responsible for the housing and banking debacle that President Bush got blamed for by then-Candidate Obama in 2007. It was the Dodd-Frank bill passed by Democrats that made the liberal financial institutions richer by billions of dollars. It encouraged banks to give mortgages to people who couldn’t even afford the down payment. That is what the Liberal Democrats do best. They make you feel good while they push you down the rabbit hole to oblivion.
Remember what happened to Detroit because the people there kept putting the same Democratic Charlatans back in office for more than 50 years. Finally, the chickens came home to roost and threw all the good people out of their homes and jobs. There are two cities in California that are on the same track. How many more cities have to follow Detroit before the American people rise up and make a clean sweep?
I hope it happens in 2014 and then again in 2016.
