There is no system that is so messed up that still another layer of government involvement won't screw it up even more.

DECEMBER 8, 2009


Today's televised speech by BO was at the Left-Liberal Establishment's Brookings Institute.  Like an arrogant kid, he blamed all problems on the previous administration while taking personal credit for anything that passes for optimistic news.  He did not sound very convincing.

Despite the impression the presidential teleprompter reader tries to give, and as poor as the Bush Administration was in holding the line on federal spending, the Obamacrats have been far, far worse.  In less than one year in office, Obama and the Democrats -- with Republicans almost completely in full opposition -- have increased the annual federal deficit considerably more than it had gone up during the entire 8 years under Bush 43.

I used to say that under President George W. Bush the Republicans in Congress were spending the taxpayers' money like drunken Democrats.  Guess that wasn't really true.  There is no way to outspend the Dems. (And of course the Repubs who try to do so make a terrible mistake.)  By any and all measures, Obama and the Democrats (and remember the Dems have been in control of Congress for the last three years) are several times as statist as the Bush Republicans were.

President Obama's approval ratings continue to sink despite the establishment media's best efforts.  Even many of the black folks who voted for Obama in 2008 (perhaps believing he had something significant in common with them because of his partial African blood) are now beginning to see through him.  They are beginning to realize how they were duped by believing in lofty-sounding promises given in political campaign speeches.  The media still covers up for him and there will always be some who will carry his water for him and even drink his Kool-Ade.  But the bloom is off the rose.  The backlash is growing.
