From the Big Hollywood Blog–the link between Obama’s negativity and your 401k statement
Posted by Liberty on February 27, 2009
Great blog post from Ernie Mannix.
“All through the campaign Barack Obama told us not to listen to the ‘politics of fear.’ These are the ways of the old guard, the naysayers, the negative ones – he said. Those who won’t sit and talk with the bad men are the warmongers – he called them. These are the guys who created our enemies, he inferred. Don’t listen when they use words like ‘terrorist’ and ‘disaster’ and ignore the call to be vigilant. It’s a neo-con ruse. It’s a plot to scare you.”
Lo and behold, now we’re finding ourselves the victims of Obama’s own brand of domestic terrorism–his continual negativity on America’s economy.
“So what has our president been saying lately? The economic slump is a ‘continuing disaster,’ he told us. He said the economy is ‘in crisis.’ Back in December he told us it was ‘going to get worse.’ Recently he warned of a ‘national catastrophe’ if the stimulus bill wasn’t passed. He kept his speech before the joint session somewhat more positive in a stylistic sense (style points count when you blow off your promise about not tolerating any earmarks). But still, again down goes the Dow.
I can’t remember a president in my lifetime who out of the gate, has been so pessimistic and directly affected the markets so negatively. This man sits in the most powerful position on the globe. His words BOOM above every other chief on the planet. A president says it – the world listens. He keeps telling us he inherited this problem. No sir, you wanted this problem. You ran on it, with it and for it. Time to stop the blame and deliver on your promises, deliver on your hope. The markets need some.
Now, say for instance you have several million dollars and are thinking about investing in a start up business but you turn on the tube and the leader of the free world is saying words like ‘disaster’ and ‘crisis’ and other doom gloomy tidbits. Maybe you put your dinero back in your pocket? I think so.”
Mannix goes on to make several more really great points such as the utter foolishness of Obama and the Democrats demonizing “big business” while meanwhile, people all over the U.S. are losing their jobs. He goes on to contrast the way Winston Churchill sought to inspire Britons as Hitler’s bombs dropped with Obama’s class warfare mongering and economic negativity. Definitely check out his blog to read Churchill’s uplifting speech rewritten in the style of Obama!
Speaking of Churchill and Obama, did you hear that Obama sent a bust of Churchill back to the British?
The bust was loaned by the British government to President George W. Bush after the September 11 attacks.
“A bust of the former prime minister once voted the greatest Briton in history, which was loaned to George W Bush from the Government’s art collection after the September 11 attacks, has now been formally handed back.
The bronze by Sir Jacob Epstein, worth hundreds of thousands of pounds if it were ever sold on the open market, enjoyed pride of place in the Oval Office during President Bush’s tenure.
But when British officials offered to let Mr Obama to hang onto the bust for a further four years, the White House said: ‘Thanks, but no thanks.'”
Evidently Sir Winston Churchill is not the kind of hero that Obama wants to see in the Oval Office every day. This article does say that Obama has replaced the Churchill bust with a statuette of Abraham Lincoln–a supposed hero of Obama’s. Obama has been trying to draw parallels between himself and Lincoln and they could not be less similar. Lincoln was a man of principle. Enough said.
Once Obama has finished exploiting Lincoln’s image for his own gain, I would look for that bust to be slyly replaced with a statue of Saul Alinsky, Che Guevara or Karl Marx.
