I was complaining to my business partner this morning that I didn’t even get a chance to talk about Obamacare on my radio show Tuesday because so many other outrages have edged out that outrage. This administration is working so quickly to destroy this country that the opposition is constantly racing from one wrong to another. Heck remember the closing of GITMO usurped by government funding of abortion, which was then usurped by Government capping executive salaries until it was usurped by expansion of union power, which then got usurped by the stimulus package?
That was all before the President’s first speech to a joint session of Congress.
The outrages continued:
My outrage over the announced withdrawal of troops from Iraq was usurped, by outrage about the Omnibus Act, which was replaced by outrage over administrations failure to support the protesters in Iran. That outrage was soon usurped by the President’s change in GITMO standards including the prohibition of the term “enemy combatant”.
It was barely a blink of the eye before the President took over GM and Chrysler which was outrageous enough until he decided to ignore the bankruptcy statute, and in his own special way convinced shareholders not to cross him. Outrageous!
And before that outrage wore out, POTUS released justice department memos from the Bush administration on enhanced interrogation so his base could take up a witch hunt for John Yoo. The ink on that outrage had barely dried when the President outraged us by nominating a woman to the Supreme Court whose major accomplishment was elevating minorities over white people under the law. While the smoke was still coming out of my ears the president flew to Saudi Arabia to bow to the king. And if that wasn’t outrageous enough the President continued his campaign to rid America of its “exceptional” status in a series of overseas apologies.
Next we had the flawed Cash for Clunkers program - an outrageous waste of money spent while the president heated up the healthcare rhetoric. Meanwhile unemployment continued to skyrocket to outrageous levels.
Next outrage turned to embarrassment when the President traveled to Copenhagen to lose the Olympics for Chicago. Shortly thereafter the president received the Nobel Peace Prize for something that may or may not happen in the future.
And that was just in the first year.
In January during the state union address the the president promised to pivot to “jobs, jobs, jobs” and then promptly didn’t. He also managed to insult the entire Supreme Court by misstating the ruling in Citizens United v.Federal Election Commission and then chastising the Court for his error. That was outrageous enough for a “constitutional scholar” and even more so for a president.
Before that outrage was even digested we learned that the president spent so much of our money that he created the largest one month deficit in history $220 billion IN ONE MONTH.
Still no “jobs, jobs, jobs”. Then the health care debacle got re-ratcheted up. First we got the outrageous “Slaughter rule” followed by the more outrageous reconciliation bill. Now that the bill has passed and in the words of Nancy Pelosi, “we can find out what’s in it” my outrage continues to grow. Free viagra for pedophiles is just the tip of the iceberg it seems.
Today I awake to the signing of an outrageous treaty with Russia which will debilitate our country’s defenses. I can only imagine what outrage will usurp this outrage. The only thing I know for sure is that it will happen, probably sooner than later.
