“We had reversed the recession, avoided a depression, got the economy moving again. … But over the last six months, we’ve had a run of bad luck.”
“Ninety-nine percent of the failures come from people who have the habit of making excuses.”
Obama is full of excuses. And empty of any self-accountability whatsoever…..As only Krauthammer can elaborate:
A troubled nation wonders: How did we get mired in 9.1 percent unemployment, 0.9 percent growth and any economic outlook so bad that the Federal Reserve pledges to keep interest rates at zero through mid-2013 — an admission that it sees little hope on the horizon?
Bad luck, explains our president. Out of nowhere came Japan and its supply-chain disruptions, Europe and its debt problems, the Arab Spring and those oil spikes. Kicked off, presumably, by various acts of God (should He not be held accountable too?): earthquake and tsunami. (Tomorrow: pestilence and famine. Maybe frogs.)……
…A plague of bad luck and bad faith — a recalcitrant providence and an unpatriotic opposition. Our president wrestles with angels. Monsters of mythic proportions.
A comforting fantasy. But a sorry excuse for a failing economy and a flailing presidency.
Obama is a miserable failure at leading this great country. However, Obama likely considers his promotion of class warfare, socialism, government/business alliances, and record welfare state as success.
Obama’s success = America’s failure. Gee where have I heard something like that before?
Look, what he’s talking about is the absorption of as much of the private sector by the US government as possible, from the banking business, to the mortgage industry, the automobile business, to health care. I do not want the government in charge of all of these things. I don’t want this to work. ……
…… We want to promote failure, we want to promote incompetence, we want to stand by and not object to what he’s doing simply because of the color of his skin? Sorry. I got past the historical nature of this months ago. He is the president of the United States, he’s my president, he’s a human being, and his ideas and policies are what count for me, not his skin color, not his past, not whatever ties he doesn’t have to being down with the struggle, all of that’s irrelevant to me. We’re talking about my country, the United States of America, my nieces, my nephews, your kids, your grandkids. Why in the world do we want to saddle them with more liberalism and socialism? Why would I want to do that? So I can answer it, four words, “I hope he fails.” And that would be the most outrageous thing anybody in this climate could say. Shows you just how far gone we are.
Obama has failed this country (perhaps purposefully, in my opinion) but has succeeded in much of his anti-American, anti-capitalist agenda. That agenda means America fails. It it not too late to turn back the tide but it must be done in 2012.
Obama must be ousted in 2012…..that’s all there is to it.
