Boy, some people just do not get how “cool” Obama is I guess

After the Stare of the Union speech, ah sermon, ah campaign event last night you might be wondering what other regular Americans thought of it. I overheard several conversations at the airport today, and, suffice it to say, the thumbs were not pointing up. Over at Wyblog, Chris is less than impressed

Universal preschool? Yeah, because starting the progressive indoctrination at age 5 is sometimes too late. Gotta get ’em when they’re really young and impressionable. By kindergarten some kids already believe in God, and that cuts down on their ability to pledge unvarnished fealty to the State.

How else can he expect to create a nation of sheeple who’ll let him play dictator via the Executive Order(s) of the Day? The government is smarter than you; go back to watchingAmerican Idol and leave the thinking to us!

Gun Control! Now! Because children.

How about ponies? Children want ponies too. I’ll bet I can find a boatload of YouTube videos of kids asking for a pony. Are those kids any less earnest than the kids begging Dear Leader to take away my guns?

If I wanted a child to run the country I would have voted for one. Can we put the adults back in charge? Please?

“The fact is, the 12 hottest years on record have all come in the last 15.” Um, no. Sorry Sport. Not even close. Get your facts straight.

Oh, who am I kidding? To his followers, anything Dear Leader says is automatically a Fact. Unless you’re a racist.

He’s reduced the deficit by $2.5 Trillion. He said it, it must be true. In some alternate universe.

Of course, Obamabots do reside in an alternate universe. A universe where the terrible economy of President Bush was Bush’s fault but the terrible economy of Obama’s first term is, well that is Bush’s fault as well. A universe where that evil President Bush spent WAY TOO MUCH! A universe where the Obamassiah spent way more than Bush, but that is OK, I mean he had to spend more, because, apparently, the only way to fix too overspending is by spending more. Oh, and that unemployment rate? Bush’s fault!

So, basically, this is what Obama says he wants. He wants to spend more, tax more, gut the military, embrace our enemies, tell our friends to go screw themselves, and oh yes, create lots of green jobs, you know, because that worked so well during the first four years of Obamanomics. Oh, and, of course, Obama tells us that whole sequester notion that he cooked up? Well that is the Republican’s fault now, an evil plot to take food from children or something. Of course, he pitched for more gun control laws, and more government solutions for everything.

So, I suppose there is but one thing to learn here America. Obama is not the solution, he is the problem


R.S. McCain: The economy sucks like a rabid vacuum cleaner

Or words to that effect anyway. Funny how Obamanomics slow descent into economic hell has sped up dramatically since last Tuesday isn’t it? Recession, Inflation, and unemployment, Oh My!

None of this is exactly news to anyone who was really paying attention. Unfortunately, about 62.6 million Americans weren’t paying attention Nov. 6, so that the cause of this non-news – the disastrous failure of Obamanomics — will now be extended by four years. Danielle Saul comments:

[W]e as a country have conceded to the entitlement mentality, and it is already beginning to destroy our country. Jobless claims have risen 78k since the election pushing unemployment to 439k, the highest level since April 2011.

Danielle provides an extensive list of announced layoffs. Looks like it’s going to be an un-Merry Christmas for lots of folks. And even the 1% will have a little less holiday cheer: The Dow Jones Industrial Average has lost more than 700 points since Obama was re-elected.

Maybe all those stupid young “Vagina Voters” can find some way to trade in their free contraceptives for cash.

That is the bad news, the worse news is that Democrats STILL are calling for more deficit spending to reduce the deficit

Senate Democrats, feeling confident from their net gain of two seats in last week’s election, say any deficit-reduction package negotiated in the coming weeks must include stimulus measures.

They have yet to decide which prime-the-pump measures to push, but are mulling options such as new infrastructure spending and an extension of the payroll tax holiday.

Ah yes, infrastructure spending. Funny, I thought much of the original stimulus was going to go to infrastructure. But, I guess by the time Obama’s cronies got their pet projects funded, and we gave billions and billions to “green” energy companies that went bust, well, the money was gone.
