Conservative Refocus: Obama's Top Ten Job-Killing Commandments
September 28th, 2011
By Barry Secrest
When historians look back on the period of 2008 to 2012, notable will be the unceasing march of one disaster after another that kept a nervous world on edge much of the time. However, the greatest and most recent major disaster to both the US and the world's economies as a whole, despite the fact that only some earnest few are willing to conjure up the nerve to just come right out and actually say it, was the election of Barack Hussein Obama, a natural disaster in his own rite. This fact has become as painfully apparent to those of us grounded on the political right, as the astonishingly quick decline of America's economy has been to the world at large. This fact was, further, made stunningly clear in the latest Obama dramatic escapade.
The President, during his joint-congressional address concerning jobs, was allotted perhaps the only congressional command performance his presidential career will likely ever see, nevermind the fact that the actual command came from him, the Messianic Marginalizer himself. The President, after 33 months of consistently bad-mouthing industry after industry, free market capitalism, any and all political opposition, the wealthy, a substantial portion of the population (the Tea Party) and anyone else who dared disagree, brazenly stated during his speech:
"This isn't about class warfare."
The response, from the House Chamber and perhaps even many TV attendee's, was a considerable amount of disbelief, if not perhaps even marginally insane, giggling at this point, the mirth being directed towards a sitting, yet bravely dysfunctional, US President.
And who can, at this point, blame them?
Granted, taking the President seriously, when it comes to his earnestness about anything regarding the economy, is a difficult exercise at best these days. But when the President commanded that Congress pass a $500 billion jobs bill that had yet to even be written, let alone filed at this stale date, after already having practically drowned the nation in debt, strained at the reins of plausible credibility. When Obama further went on to demagogue taxes and the wealthy, yet again, slightly over 34 million Americans--most likely and in finality--unanimously discerned that this man was not at all the great intellectual unifier that they had been sold by the Axis Press.
This particular point, therefore, leads us to question one of the more prevalent media themes which we have commented upon numerous times in the past.
If You Can't Dazzle Them With Brilliance Then Baffle Them With Bull...
You see, ever-still agonizingly present within all the arguments, despite every smidgen of evidence to the contrary--even to this beleaguered day--are the various and now often comical references to just how "keen" or "intellectually deep" our President actually is. Well... keen in exactly which way becomes the penultimate question? Keen of defeating free market capitalism? Keen of raw candidacy skills? Perhaps extraordinarily keen of engineering an unstable post-modern American decline?....
