DC Pols As Crash Dummies

Published by at 12:05 pm under 2012 Elections,All General Discussions

You know, America is getting rightfully fed up with the crap going on in DC. Our supposed “Hope & Change”, post-partisan President who was elected in 2008 has now morphed into a far left zealot who has gone into ‘divide America and win at all costs’ manic overdrive. Hate the rich, hate the middle class, hate whites, hate Christians/Catholics, hate business, hate profits, hate success, hate Israel …

The White House has become a pathetic distillation of the worst of the left – and somehow expects this to win them votes in 2012. It is stupendously stupid as well as tone deaf political move.

The Senate has become the pouting chamber, killing one House bill after another and threatening to shutdown the government. The only problem with this strategy is that it might be THE MOST POPULAR move the pols in DC could make. Check out these latest numbers from Gallup (click to enlarge graphs:

A record-high 81% of Americans are dissatisfied with the way the country is being governed, adding to negativity that has been building over the past 10 years.

These numbers are worse than in 2008 when the GOP was ousted from power, and worse than 2010 when the Dems in the House were ousted. Worse yet, most people fear the reach and incompetence of government over most other concerns. Check out this key number:

49% of Americans believe the federal government has become so large and powerful that it poses an immediate threat to the rights and freedoms of ordinary citizens. In 2003, less than a third (30%) believed this.

So, if you are from the big-government, dangerously-incompetent party (i.e., Democrats) what do you think your chances are for 2012? I would say ‘slim to none‘ is being kind.

The economy cannot get out from under the crush of government ‘oversight’ and taxes. Obamacare has turned out to be the disaster everyone said it would be. The great socialist experiment in Europe is crashing down. The Keynesian government-trickle-down theory has been finally destroyed. And liberals are up in arms because they have justly lost all credibility.

You have to wonder why the Dems have become so incoherent. What has driven them to this point?

Obama promises to tax millionaires while his millionaire buddies go bankrupt and hand taxpayers a $535 million dollar busted loan. One of many to come.

Obama’s EPA is outlawing breathing (CO2) and the inhalers used to help those with trouble breathing. The Death Panels are up and running already when breathing is a crime.

It simply boggles the mind how ridiculous and insane the strategeries coming from DC really are these dys.

Note to Harry Reid – please shut it down. Shut it all down.

And then the next Congress and President can re-open it from the bottom up, with only those minimal requirements implemented. Right now that would probably be the simplest and quickest path back to sanity.

    there’s an amazing link from the BBC today – a market trader decided to be completely honest on camera and tell the hosts just what the real prospects are right now. As the newsreader says, everyone’s jaws were hanging open; they’re not used to hearing the unvarnished truth like this.

    But be assured, what this trader states here is what every professional *knows* is true – the only real argument professionals would have is whether or not you scare too many people by telling the truth of things, so better to pretend it’s not coming.

    I agree with this guy – no point hiding things anymore, especially when the end is so close.

    The thing I can’t wrap my head around is that other uber-Lefties accuse him of “caving to the Republicans” and “not doing ENOUGH”.
    Good Grief. He caved to the Repubs? On WHAT? WHEN? Somehow I must have missed it. He’s tossed trillions of dollars at nothing-in-particular; he’s racked up so much debt that OUR GRANDKIDS will still be paying for it — for decades to come; and somehow that’s “not enough” for these people? Aaargh!

    I’m not an “I told you so” type of person, but…. I told you so, back right after the election I said he was going to be exactly what you are now saying he is. While I was prepared to give him a chance, he really DID NOT deserve it. He has been every bit as harmful to the country as I said he would be. Maybe we should just hire qualified, eligible people to that position in the future and quit having ‘fantasies’ about what might be. This country, likely, can only be killed so many times and this is one of those lives. He ABSOLUTELY must go.

    Thanks for the video link. For the life of me I cannot figure out why this market is anywhere above the 7,000 range Dow given the state of things. I just think a lot of folks are wanting to make money and its like whipping egg whites into a froth, there is nothing there when the bubbles pop.
