Pilot Obama to passengers: IT'S YOUR FAULT PLANE IS CRASHING!

By Dave Weinbaum

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | We have a "leader" who, without any practical or administrative experience, won the Presidency of the USA . When inaugurated into the pilot's seat, he sealed the cockpit, telling us that he and his minions would lower sea levels, bring world peace, heal race hurts and raise the poor via social justice. Then he took off. He hasn't stopped flying since -- literally.

Once in that rarified air, Obama became intractable—spewing whatever was on his teleprompter, actually believing what he was posing as. Those tingling on his tripe couldn't be stopped.

All of us, supporters of Obama or not, have been taken for a two-way ride -- soaring high on his rhetoric and now nose-diving on his grievously failed governing (piloting) abilities.

The arrogance and result gap of Obama and the economic anemics he appointed is the Grand Canyon of contrast to theory and reality. These boobs have cost the country a net loss of 2.5 million jobs, while driving the unemployment rate from 7.8 to 9.2%. The June Job gain was a devastating 18,000. (Bureau of Labor Statistics)

The Obama Administration, under a fawning Nancy Pelosi and blindly partisan Harry Reid, have flown us to an oxygen-thin $4.1 trillion more in debt in two years -- 40% more than at the end of the Bush Administration.

Yet, somehow, they expect the majority to still believe that George W. Bush is to blame. Sorry, but when you shove a trillion-dollar stimulus down our throats and guarantee unemployment won't go over 8% during your first full month of governing, you lose the credibility to blame others. Yet, Dems and their ilk can't stop blaming Bush. Well, America ain't buying it anymore.

Neither are the members of Obama's economic team. Five of the six have resigned, leaving only Treasury Secretary Tim "Tax Cheat" Geithner to rattle on about how the rich aren't paying their "fair" share. Hell, the rich are paying almost all the taxes.

The Dem wish and wonder plan — "We wish one was written and wonder what cuts they'd make":

  • The only Dem plan was Obama's limp proposal of $400 billion unspecific cuts over ten years. It was crushed 97-0 in the Dem controlled Senate.

  • Under Dem control of the House and Senate from 2009 thru January 2011, Dems failed to even propose a budget, much less pass one.

  • In 12/10, Obama ignored his own bipartisan debt commission who called for $4 trillion in spending cuts.

  • In 1/11, Barack didn't mention spending cuts until 35 minutes into his State of the Union Speech.

  • In 4/11, the President alluded to a plan that was so vague the bipartisan CBO head said, "We don't estimate speeches." I hear the teleprompter may sue.

On the other hand, Republicans who control the House starting 1/20/11:

  • Passed a budget on April 15th--The Ryan Plan. This proposed specific cuts that would save the economy, Medicare and Social Security, all currently speeding their way to bankruptcy.

  • Passed Cut, Cap and Balance, something 20 Dem Congressmen have said we need.

Those who fail to shepherd the herd tend to want to bar-b-cue it

The reaction of the sandbaggers in the Dem-controlled Senate and the WH was to produce ads showing a Paul Ryan-type dumping granny off a cliff. Then, with the cover of scaring unknowing seniors, the Senate Dems killed the House budget along party lines. After Repubs passed the Cut, Cap and Balance bill in the House, Harry Reid wouldn't let it be debated or voted on up or down. So where's your plan, Harry? Isn't that the job America elected you to do?

This Dem-run political sophistry is what's putting this country in peril.

As a reminder to those who excoriate Republicans for not caving in, not one Democratic Senator voted to raise the debt ceiling in 2006, including Senator B. Hussein Obama. So were they trying to put a "…specter of default over the country" back then as Geithner accused Republicans of doing just yesterday?

De Plan, De Plan!

According to Boehner, he and Obama had a deal with $3.5 trillion in cuts in ten years, while raising $800 billion in tax revenues, via tax rate reductions, while spreading the burden. Then, after the fact, Obama demanded $400 billion more in raised taxes -- three days in a row.

Meanwhile De Plan, De Plan is rapidly crashing on the cliffs of De Fault, De Fault!

Are there any golden parachutes left?
