I just keep marveling at how much deeper the Democrats and Liberal Left keep digging their hole with the American voters.
First they screw up the mortgage market by lowering standards for loans, that in turn led to mountains of useless loan paper, which then collapsed the financial markets. This caused home values to tank, wiping out the life savings of tens of millions of Americans. A master stroke of incompetence.
Then the Democrats in 2009-2011 (the budget years they controlled) squandered over $5 trillion in NEW debt with their impotent Keynesian economic fantasy about government trickle down stimulus. A massive debt now owed by those same families who have lost all their life savings, many of which who also lost their jobs as the ripples from the massive liberal social-engineering SNAFU that was the mortgage debacle spread out to the rest of the economy.
The end result is seniors having to go back to work, and taking jobs from the young workers entering the work force. Now we have a new generation in crisis as their careers are put on hold by another master stroke of liberal incompetence. When Obamacare finishes destroying our health care system, we will have three master strokes, and the Dems should be out of office.
But wait, there’s more. Not only did the left fail to create or save jobs, they actually have destroyed many. Obama canceled one of America’s most productive innovation engines out there. In fact, the exploration of space has been one of humankind’s most productive engines of innovation and modern comforts. From computers to modern weather warnings to medicine to uncounted other modern marvels, NASA has made our collective lives immensely better since its inception in the 1960’s. I dare the Departments of Energy and Education to even compare.
“We will have no American access to, and return from, low Earth orbit and the International Space Station for an unpredictable length of time in the future,” Neil Armstrong, the first man to set foot on the Moon, warned lawmakers at a recent hearing.
The end of the space shuttle era has left America’s human spaceflight program in an “embarrassing” state, Armstrong said, arguing that NASA needs a stronger vision for the future and should focus on returning humans to the Moon and to the International Space Station.
With the US space shuttle program now mothballed after its last flight in July, the United States is forced to depend on Russia’s Soyuz capsules to ferry astronauts to the orbiting research laboratory until at least 2015.
Obama canceled the Constellation program that aimed to return humans to the Moon by 2020 and called on NASA to instead focus on new, deep-space capabilities to carry people to an asteroid by 2025 and Mars by 2030.
Let’s be clear here. What Obama did was cancel tens of thousands of existing, world premiere engineering jobs and replace them with paper studies that can be performed by about 20-40 people sitting around day dreaming, since nothing has to be done for decade or more.
Neil Armstrong is a true American Hero, braving a completely hostile and unknown environment in a time when we our computers had a fraction of the brain power of a dumb cell phone. He is not a President Zero (as in zero jobs created). More lives hurt. And this has been repeated all through government as naive zealots where given a chance to sandbox.
The irony here is incredible. Just look at the left-wing nut jobs protesting (by the dozens) the fact some people succeed (those who work hard and don’t rely on others for handouts). Now the left has become the party of the petulant loser, it is going to fall like rock in terms of respect and credibility with all those dedicated, hard working and self sufficient Americans. You know – 70% of the population.
Juxtapose left-wing anarchists calling for the FURTHER demise of the American dream and vision with Harry Reid’s insane priorities in the US Senate. Is it all about jobs, like the left-wing protestors try to claim while they march on Wall Street?
Senate Republicans tried to make Democrats hold a quick vote on President Obama’s jobs-stimulus bill Tuesday, but were blocked by Senate Majority Harry Reid, the Nevada Democrat who is sponsoring Mr. Obama’s bill but who said other matters take priority.
Yeah. lining your cronies pockets with loans the tax payer has to repay when you screw up (in other words, free money) like we see with Solyndra is always going to come before silly ‘ol jobs.
The left is completely coming apart. They are incoherent and a vicious (when you call for anyone holding more than a certain amount of money to be beheaded, you need to seek therapy). And they keep digging in deeper with Main Street America, who are the ones who always foot the bill for crooked and incompetent politicians in DC.
This is not lost on anyone outside the echo chamber of DC.
