State of the Union

Its sad.

The President is clearly out of touch with the realities of life for every day Americans, regardless of class. Poor American are paying more for gas than they were a year ago. Their dollar buys them less at the grocery store and Walmart where the declining dollar has driven up shipping costs as well as the cost of imports.

The President advocated nuclear power, domestic drilling and clean coal. The green lobby must haved dropped dead, just so they could turn over in their graves. While running for President, obama asailed John McCain's call for 30 new nuclear plants in the United States. He further fought any legislation to open up domestic oil drilling. Never mind that China, by way of Cuban leases, uses horizontal drilling techniques closer to the US mainland than any American company is permitted to. And then there is clean coal. I believe obama called clean coal a fallacy.

The President has failed to fully address our nation's economic issues while chasing devisive legislation which draws resources away from an economic recovery. Powerful Democrats are even recognizing this. Rep. Ike Skelton, D-Mo., chairman of the Armed Services Committee, said ...

"Somewhere along the line, the White House lost its way. Instead of focusing on solutions to help America's families wade through the wreckage of the worst economic crisis since the 1930s, Washington has wasted valuable time wrestling with partisan politics in an effort to rush through drastic reforms that do not directly address our most immediate needs."

Its becomming more and more evident, that our President is like the emperor and his new clothes. Unfortunatly, there is nobody in, the inner circle willing to tell the President that he's naked. GWB was a moron who screwed us all. Barack Obama is a conniving carpet bagger who is willfully screweing us all. Anybody can make a mess, but takes real brains to create a disaster.

Healthcare Reform

At this point, it looks like the Dems may try and fast track this legislation while they still technically have the 60 votes in the Senate to avoid a filibuster by the Republicans, who would have enough votes to block the legislation, with the election of Scott Brown in Massachusetts.

I can only say, that any move, of that manor would be highly unethical, considering that the people of Massachusetts have spoken. They have chosen their representation. To go against the clearly stated will of the people is just plain wrong.

Then again, when has the will of the people meant anything to our emperor, his tailor and the sycophants around him to who tell him how nice his new clothes look.

Mr. President, your mandate, if you can call 52% a mandate, has been revoked.

To my elected represenatives, Mr. Moran, Mr. Webb and Mr. Warner, its time to start listening to your constituants rather than marching in lockstep with the President. The party is over, you'll all be out looking for a job soon.

I find it ironic that our President disparages Scott Brown as a lockstep Republican while he's busy trying to save Ted Kennedy's seat in Congress for a lockstep Democrat. Tsk tsk tsk.

Soooooooo Long Sucka!

Chris Dodd has finally realized that he is going to get his ass handed to him in November, so he's stepping aside. Calling it retirement. He should to be going to jail for his involvement with Countrywide Mortgage Co. This makes today the best day of the year. What shame to waste it on a frigid Wednesday in January, but somehow, it seems a little warmer out, a little brighter of a day.

Harry Reid ... you’re next.

The Emperors New Clothes

The market rally is farce, just like the "strong" housing numbers are a joke. The markets are being propped up with our own tax dollars that the IBanks were bailed out with last year.

The housing markets only have decent numbers to report because of the $8000 tax credit and the government's unending willingness to underwrite bad loans through FHA, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Take away either mistake or better yet both and we would see housing sales go through the sub-basement floor. Almost instantly we would see home prices fall to the Case-Shiller 100 year trend line which follows the curves for inflation and personal income growth. Clinton expanded the CRA and GWB continued following through on the idea, which is now showing itself to be a miserably failed experiment. Its time to make housing affordable, the right way, the natural way. Truly affordable housing, would be the best thing that could possibly happen to our economy and a real economic rebound. Money tied up buying over priced, artificially inflated home prices is not productively used money. Its essentially wasted money, because its money that isn't available for investment and consumption of manufactured goods.

I expected better from Harvard (our President) and Hopkins (Turbo Tax Timmy) men, but I guess they have an alternate agenda that does not include serving the tax payers best interests. Sadly, the White House and Capitol Hill have ceased to be where our country's best and brightest have tried to go. Now its the domain of special interests, the the party of no ideas and the party of bad ideas.

The Hope our President promised us during his campaign is proving to be false and fleeting. The statute of limitations on blaming George W. Bush is running out. Eventually, even the most strident supporter will have to reconcile with the reality of the situation.
