Liberals must be so proud (although I equally blame the Republican Party for inflicting the Obama administration on this country). Not even six months into taking over the Presidency and majorities in both houses of Congress and the libs have the following badges of honor to pin on their tee-shirts.
- Barack Obama is projected to quadruple the deficit left by the Bush administration over the next decade; a very conservative assessment. In reality “By the auditors’ calculation, Obama’s budget would generate deficits averaging almost $1 trillion a year of red ink over 2010-2019.”
- Military recruiter William Long was killed by a Muslim jihadi on Monday. Barack Obama, supposed commander in chief, has yet to issue a statement of condolences. Abortionist George Tiller was killed on Sunday. Barack Obama made a speech Sunday evening reflecting shock. The left is on a roll, looking to paint all pro-life people as extremist nuts as a result of Tiller’s murder.
- Barack Obama is on a trip to Suadi Arabi and the Middle East, where he snubbed Israel, of course. Adding insult to injury is Obama’s State Department that issued a warning to reporters: “by agreement between the Obama Administration and the Saudi government, the White House press corps will be severely restricted while in the country”. Time Magazine reporter Michael Scherer reports that while in Saudi Arabia he is not to report on anything except the President’s visit lest he “risk arrest and detention by Saudi authorities.” Of course this didn’t stop Barack Obama from bowing to the Saudi King in the past. The Saudi govt. disputes the State Department claims.
- Both GM and Chrysler are seeking bankruptcy despite taking billions in stimulus money. The government has taken the companies over for the most part, closings are rampant and Obama is predicting that the worst is yet to come yet claims that the sacrifice being made by the ousted workers will be done in a patriotic manner to help future generations of Americans. GM sells Hummer to China.
Could it get worse? This is a short list, very short. Yet there is plenty more Weasel activity going on as indicated by the following list of submissions for the first week of June! Enjoy, and please, add your own list of accomplishments by the Democrats and the Obama administration to this post!
