And The Beat (ing) Goes On -- Part 14

Find a Boogie Man which of course is the way to take the attention off of the party where the real fault lies (Obama and company). The general public has been so brainwashed into believing that the Big Bad Oil Companies are always to blame for high prices that this makes this one easy:   

"I asked my attorney general to look into any cases of price gouging so he can make sure nobody's being taken advantage of at the pump. Today I'm gonna go a step further. The attorney general's putting together a team whose job it is to root out any cases of fraud or manipulation in the oil markets that might affect gas prices, and that includes the role of traders and speculators. We're gonna make sure that nobody's taking advantage of American consumers for their own short-term gain." --Barack Obama

And this is how the administration handled the situation!

"So, if Obama's numbers are gas-tanking, the political/policy czars in the White House need to find someone to blame, and fast. The President has announced the formation of yet another task force, this one in the Department of Justice to look for fraud and illegal manipulation of gasoline prices." --political analyst Rich Galen

"Just how dire is the crisis over the $14,294,000,000,000 debt ceiling, which America will hit on about May 16? So dire that President Obama spent much of last week traipsing across the West collecting campaign cash (and hit the golf course for Round No. 65 on Saturday). So dire that Congress headed off on a two-week vacation (and Sen. Harry Reid jetted off to China on a 10-day junket with nine colleagues, costing taxpayers millions)." --former White House correspondent Joseph Curl

And the decision was based on what?

Poll driven policy: "Now to those climbing gas prices. They are taking a toll on so many of you and any anger you feel about it is likely to rise this week when oil companies report what are expected to be record profits. ... [T]hese gas prices are also knocking down President Obama's poll numbers, which is why he's out there nearly every day addressing this problem." --ABCs George Stephanopoulos (It's nice to have a president who advocates "change" based on poll numbers.)

Now, what is Obama's plan?

First comes: Class warfare: "I believe that we can't ask everybody to sacrifice and then tell the wealthiest among us, well, you can just relax and go count your money, and don't worry about it. We're not going to ask anything of you." --Barack Obama

Next on the list rewrite history and claim that Government spending made America great. "I will not reduce our deficit by sacrificing the things that have always made America great. The things that have made Americans prosper. I won't sacrifice our investments in education. I will not sacrifice those. I won't sacrifice our investments in science and basic research. I won't sacrifice the safety of our highways or our airports. I won't sacrifice our investment in clean energy at a time when our dependence on foreign oil is causing Americans so much pain at the pump. I will not sacrifice America's future. That I will not do." --Barack Obama

So in summation Obama's plan is to do nothing as described in his own words, "I will not reduce our deficit..."

Now just for laughs here are comments from the  Village Idiots:


Blame Republicans for Obama's poll numbers: "People are a little disappointed in the president because he hasn't been able to change the way Washington works at all. Indeed, Congress is even more poorly regarded. Everybody wanted a bigger deal than was done on the last budget go-around. And so in an odd way the fact that the Republicans and Congress are so poorly regarded, that the whole system is so poorly regarded, drags everybody down, including the president." --Huffington Post's Howard Fineman

 Spin: "You know, the president went to church yesterday. It was well covered. I'm not sure if we put out a statement or not." --White House Press Secretary Jay Carney attempting to spin away the fact that Obama has never once followed the presidential custom of issuing an official Easter proclamation, though he sure didn't miss Earth Day

Belly laugh of the week: "Our policy has been and will always be, as long as I will be in office, that a strong dollar is in the interest of the country. We will never embrace a strategy to weaken the dollar."  --Treasury Secretary Tim "Turbo Tax" Geithner

The BIG BIGGEST lie: "With Congress on recess, town hall events across the country are again lighting up with anger and frustration, but this time it is about the official Republican Party budget plan. The Paul Ryan budget plan, which drastically cuts taxes for the richest Americans back to what they were in the 1930s. It drastically cuts taxes for corporations. It gives billions of dollars in tax breaks to oil companies, those poor, orphaned, hard-luck oil companies. And it also, incidentally, ends Medicare, it repeals Medicare. It turns Medicare instead into a coupon system and it makes senior citizens buy private health insurance." --MSNBC's Rachel Maddow

Thanks to  The Patriot Post for the above comments. Keep the folks at the Patriot Post in your prayers as they were hit very hard by the storms and tornadoes on Wednesday night that swept through East Tennessee and much of the south.

Ticker, I suspect you are going to get to Part 1,037,983 before January 20, 2013.

Ticker said...

GM I will continue the
"Beating goes on" until Odummer is out of office. Do you see any reason that the Beating will not continue as long as this fool is in office?

Ducky's here said...

Class warfare? You mean Russia 1917?

We've got class warfare when the proles pull you out of your car and start beating you with a lug wrench.

Class warfare? Bore me later with that rabies radio sound bite.

Always On Watch said...

The "post-racial President" is deliberately promoting class warfare so as to consolidate his own power.

A bit of plagiarism there? It seems to me that, not so long ago, my friend Warren threatened to do that very thing to Duck when Duck was showing his tailfeathers in a comment. Heh.

Ticker said...

AOW Duckbutt is showing his lack of understanding and lack of ability to comprehend the meaning of words. But then again it is also his way of getting attention. He needs to buy a dog or a cat and perhaps then he could gain the attention that he needs rather than depending on the negative attention that he gets on the blogs that he post on. Of course some folks thrive on the negative attention, those with severe mental disorders that is.

"a strong dollar is in the interest of the country."

Our Sec of TREASURY makes this sound like a novel idea! Is he INSANE? And we're in HIS HANDS?

THere is definitely class warfare; it's about people who worked hard and studied hard and are being forced to feel guilty for success, for paying more than 70% of AMerican taxes and for giving so much to charity...that's a terrible thing now, according to libs with no clue and no values. The warfare is the coming down of liberals on the successful ...remember Obama suggested that people should only be allowed to make 'so much'? I forget the direct quote but I know you all heard it.

Bloomberg was right last wknd...this is NOT the time to raise taxes.

AOW, Warren is THE least he didn't threaten Ducky with a body bag like DUcky did Breitbart.

Debbie said...

Great image.

One problem is that the RINO Republlicans are doing the same thing. John Boehner parroted Obama.

Right Truth

Ticker said...

Yep Debbie, Bonehead and the rest of the GOP are gutless , spineless fools who will do nothing to solve the problem. Did you notice how they let Ryan take Obama's lambasting without even a peep. They should have been raising hell over that trick. But no, they will sit on their hands and come November they will try to convince me and others that "they tried". Sorry but it ain't gonna fly. Do nothing and watch how I vote-- OUT will be my vote.

Always On Watch said...

Spot-on analysis of Duck.

He used to have a bulldog that he doted on.
