The incompetents in Congress have just handed the Herman Cain campaign a major life line. By demonstrating one more time why big-government is today dysfunctional on a historic scale, the Super Committee (of Super duds) has reminded the voters why we don’t need yet another career politician in the White House. Here is what I wrote back on August 31, 2011 when the super-committee super-fiasco was conceived by Congress-Critters unable to do their job:
This special committee is the stupidest part of all the lame compromises coming out of DC. It does two things. It leaves the decisions to old-time, long-in-the-tooth insiders who long ago lost their connection to Main Street America. It also mutes and sidelines all those small-government House freshman who were voted in last year. They will have little to no voice, even though they are the new messengers from a frustrated and fed up electorate.
As I said, if not now with default hanging over their heads then when? This delaying game is just business-as-usual. Make the cuts NOW. Don’t wait, don’t play games, don’t waste millions on BS media propaganda.
This is just another waste of time, another round of promised future better behavior, while nothing fundamentally changes.
So the super, duper, top-dog, incompetents in DC spent 3 months to create this epic fail. Why am I not surprised. Granted, it is all future cuts and no tax hikes now kicking in automatically – but it is both mindless and future promises. Is that the best we in America deserve, a frigging holding pattern as our treasury bleeds out?
The President is AWOL, more interested in cramming liberal policy nonsense down our throats than leading. We have a sea of ex and future Congress Critters running on the GOP side, now with the former House Speaker (former head of the mess) topping recent polls. Is it Obama light in Romney, or consummate DC insiders?
Does anyone want another round of musical chairs in DC, with pols fiddling while our economy tanks? Can we really afford 4 more years of the same old, same old from DC? Look at the EU for what the future brings if we just keeping sending career politicians to DC to protect the army of useless bureaucrats:
Brussels bureaucrats were ridiculed this week after banning drink manufacturers from stating that water can prevent dehydration.
Following a three-year investigation, EU officials concluded there was no evidence to prove the previously undisputed fact.
3 years to decide water doesn’t provide our bodies water???? No amount of fine print policy nonsense can make this act sane. None. 3 years and probably millions of dollars later the only result we see is the same old one – bureaucrats can be pretty damn stupid.
My take is the voters will see this failure as one more reason to throw them bums out and stop electing insiders who abuse the system and our trust and instead look towards the unpolished Main Street candidates to go in and tear the whole thing down and start over.
