HOW’S THAT SOCIALISM THING WORKING OUT FOR Y’A NOW SARAH, JOE SCARBOROUGH, PAT BUCHANAN, BILL O’REILLY AND ALL THE OTHER ASSHOLES AT FOX, REALLY, WHAT SAY YOU?
The Dow closed at 7,949 on Bush's last day in office. That means it's gone up 50% since President Obama's inauguration; YESTERDAY That same stock market that the goons at FOX so gloatingly pointed out had lost 3,000 points three months after Obama took office. It was clear to them that President Obama’s economic policies were driving the country into an abyss. They would point out what a leftist, SOCIALIST, anti-business guy ye was. They threw everything at him even the kitchen sink.
The reality is that President Obama is a centrist; he is a lot more moderate than some of us progressive liberals would like…but hey, it is better than having McCain and the Republicans saying NO and driving this country into misery, wars and lying through their teeth to do it.
Wouldn’t you think that if Obama was a SOCIALIST when he took office and all those banks and Wall Street financial institutions were going broke that instead of extending the bush bail outs he would have simply confiscated them and have the government own them, run them and pocket the profits for the good of the nation? Does it ever occur to any of these right wing-nuts that when the automobile industry was about to shut down all their plants and fade into oblivion that Obama would have taken them over and have the US Government run them and the people own them? Aren’t you glad he didn’t? Look at the car manufacturers now…they are making a profit and employing millions of people.
The moral of the story here is that you can’t believe one iota of what Teahadist-Republicans tell you and also you can’t expect immediate results in a few months, even a few years is not enough to correct the mess that took the Republicans years to accomplish through deregulation and tax cuts for the rich, subsidies for corporations, and, worse yet the Republican encouragement to have corporations close their doors here, stop manufacturing and set up shop abroad…they did plenty of that and look at all the American jobs we have lost. Yes my friends…perhaps President Obama can walk on water, multiply the bread and the wine but it is not going to be easy to fix the hot potato the Republicans bequeathed him.
