Ever since I can remember, I’ve been getting those Hostess powdered sugar donuts and a coffee on my way to work, stopping at the gas station and filling the tank up if if was on empty.

As I was wandering around the convenience store, the clerk asked me if I needed help finding something. I told her I was looking for Hostess powdered sugar donuts. She mumbled something, led me to an obscure corner of the store, and picked up an off-brand bag of those mini chocolate donuts—you know, the ones where the chocolate has the consistency of wax and tastes about the same. I said, “Thanks but no thanks” and got a bear claw instead. It was, as convenience store bear claws are generally, soggy and tasteless.

Then it hit me: We had all heard about the demise of the Twinkie. But Twinkies weren’t the only things to go. Everything Hostess fell off of Obama’s fiscal cliff—not the mishmash that Obama has been screaming about for the past three months and the “compromise” that was passed on New Years Day that has $1.00 in spending cuts for every $41 in tax increases, but Obama’s destruction of our economy.

I walked out of the convenience store with my soggy bear claw in hand and put $20.00 of gas in my car, which barely made a dent in filling up my tank.

And it hit me like a punch in the stomach.

I realized that the $20.00 I paid for gas when Obama took office, being able to buy $20.00 worth of food at the supermarket to last me a few days, and being able to retire with a modicum of money in the bank—even my stupid Hostess powdered sugar donuts—all the big things and the little things would be no more.

Obama has destroyed our economy. With the fiscal cliff “compromise”, we are projected to hit a $20 trillion deficit by the end of Obama’s second term, which more than likely will not destroy our economy but collapse it.

Will the Twinkie ever return? Will our economy ever recover? Will Barack Hussein Obama claim that “I can’t wait for Congress” and file another executive order deeming a third term legal?

Will we ever be free of that scourge Barack Hussein Obama?

Time will tell.

Let us hope so.
