KUHNER: Demolishing the Democrats. WT. Jeffrey T. Kuhner has a tidy wrap-up on why the Democrats of glory of 2008, will go down faster than a kamikaze pilot in 2010.
They did it to themselves. Willingly. Gee, where does one start?
Hence, he rammed Obamacare down the throats of Congress and the majority of the American people. He abused the legislative process, refusing to have the sweeping health care overhaul reconciled in conference committee. His administration engaged in open bribery and corruption to arm-twist key votes – the Louisiana Purchase, the Cornhusker Kickback, the offering of judgeships to brothers of congressmen. Most despicable of all, Mr. Obama lied. He vowed that government-run health care would curb costs and not add to the deficit. However, the huge entitlement will cost taxpayers at least $1 trillion over the next decade, if not much more. It imposes rationing and lowers the quality of care. Obamacare represents another expensive entitlement program that we cannot afford.
Well if that need to do something so personal and expensive to Americans, on a massive historical level that did not satiate the man, there are several other reasons to flee under the bus.
Mr. Obama has assaulted almost every segment of society. He has nationalized the automakers, the financial sector and the college student-loan industry. His regime has called for regulating the Internet. His allies in Congress want to muzzle conservative talk radio by passing the so-called Fairness Doctrine. He has appointed numerous policy “czars” with Cabinet-level powers, circumventing the normal Senate confirmation process. His Justice Department is suing Arizona for trying to protect its citizens from Mexican drug cartels and criminal illegal aliens. He has defunded NASA’s manned space program, eviscerating America’s strategic advantage in space. The only spending cuts have been to slash $100 billion from the Pentagon’s budget – weakening our military readiness.
Money. Yes. Taking mega-wads of hard-earned cash out of taxpayer’s wallets to pay for pet superfluous projects after another, raises ire faster than gas goes aflame with a match.
Yet his greatest crime – the one for which he can and must never be forgiven – is amassing massive deficits. His administration has passed successive trillion-dollar budget deficits. He has added more to the national debt than all of the presidents from George Washington to Ronald Reagan combined. He is on pace to accumulate $10 trillion in debt over the next 10 years – a staggering amount, which no nation (ever) can pay off. In short, Mr. Obama’s spend-and-borrow polices are burying America under a mountain of red ink. Our country’s long-term fiscal – and national – security is under threat.
Debt. Massive debt. By a big-spending liberal bent on forcing his policies on all of America. Not sitting well with the country. Not at all. Is it election time yet?
“Never mind the big tent… There’s room for all under Obama’s big bus.
