Still got nine fingers? Read on...

Did you vote for Oblahblah?

I'm still waiting for my apology, you jackasses.

The link: Down on the Fourth of July: the United States of gloom

The hard-to-read excerpt: The intoxicating atmosphere of the 2008 election and Obama’s inauguration has given way to a hangover. Americans were promised that the $787 billion Obama stimulus package would cut unemployment by funding so-called “shovel-ready projects”. Instead, unemployment is at 9.1 per cent compared to the 7.8 per cent Obama inherited, while the national deficit has tripled from less than $500 billion to a staggering $1.5 trillion.

To add insult to injury, at a recent gathering of his Council on Jobs and Competitiveness, during a discussion about the length of time it took to get projects funded, a smiling Obama interjected: “Shovel-ready was not as shovel-ready as we expected.” Members of the council sitting around him tittered but most Americans were not amused.

Time's up. Time for the "community organizer" to go back to organizing things of not much importance.

Obama is to America what pesticides are to amphibians.

Obama saved us from the economic free-fall that George W. Bush and his cronies left us in. Actually, Bush started to put on the brakes as the final act of his presidency, the only damned thing that moron did that showed a lick of sense. And because he did this, rather than letting the economy collapse, and the auto industry fail, and throwing us into Grover Norquist's anarchistic wet dream of the fall of the United States, the right-wing whackos have decided to hate HIM for that.

Clinton handed Bush a soaring economy. Bush handed Obama an economy that was in meltdown. And the Repugs in Congress have done everything they can to block economic recovery. (Why the hell would they want the economy to recover while that half-breed Kenyan-born Muslim Marxist is in office?) Rush Limbaugh, the leader of the Republican party, said "I hope he fails," and his Congressional dittoheads have done their damndest to make that happen.

I'm still waiting for my apology from anyone who voted for Bush, or anyone who voted a Republican into Congress.

Somebody in the CV today suggested that the best thing Obama could do to move the nation along would be to become a Republican. I think that's brilliant. Since he's certainly not the Democrat so many people thought they were voting for, changing his affiliation wouldn't hurt him significantly among the people who voted for him in 2008. And it would mean instant cooperation from Congressional Repugs.
