Obama’s economic goals. Snarlin’ at Arlen. Don’t be so insure. Plus more.
Re: Philip Klein’s Obama’s Big Government Gamble:
The author assumes the premise that one, Obama wants to please the public; two, that he wants to pay off national debt; and three, that he is even remotely concerned about any erosion of popularity at any time. Understand, he wants the government to be his. Simply put, he wants total control. Anyone thinking any different is assuming this is politics as usual. It isn’t. What it is and will become is government seizure. What it will further become is government of Obama, by Obama, and for Obama (and his cronies).
There will be no transparency. There will be no accountability (just money stolen from taxpayers and given to cronies who work for him). There will be no need for elections ever, by the time he is through. He has taken over. This is it. And as far as I can see, this day is the least intervention we will ever have by government in our lives. As things tighten, as our liberties are taken away, we will look back to the first hundred days and say, “we long for those simpler days.”
Some say he is a Manchurian candidate. I have no idea about that. All I can see from my ranch is simply this. When you elect a Chicago politician, you get a politician. I don’t see him allowing elections after four years. All I see is him declaring is martial law.
From the home of the terrorist state of Texas. From the home of a
now declared national threat, due to my belief in life, guns, and
military service to our once great nation, here I sit.

Obama doesn’t give two hoots for the economy as long as his
supporters don’t catch wise. He is in the middle of an active
political campaign which will never cease. We will not be able to
America after Obama. His aims are not in the interests of our economy.
I have never been so concerned about our country in my 82 years. We are not in “good hands” now and our salvation will depend on squeamish Democrats in congress who wake up to our untenable situation.
Take just one campaign, the Global Warming hoax, the so called
Cap-and-Trade. The perpetrators admit that they are going to
spend us into the poor house on an imaginary problem which we
haven’t caused and can’t correct, even if we would want to change
a climate which has been 4.5 billion years in the making.

SPECTER OF A REPUBLICAN
Re: Jeffrey Lord’s True Grit: Specter Declares War on Toomey:
After reading this fawning piece I find myself questioning why I read The American Spectator. This has been a daily visit for me for some time. If this is what I can expect in the future it’s off my list. I’ve seen better from Obama fans.
I doubt there is any need for me to explain my objection.
If there is it would fall on deaf ears.

I first met Arlen Specter in the late 1970s when he spoke at a seminar at Temple Law School in Philadelphia. I was very impressed with everything about him.
During his early years in the Senate, I was still impressed with everything about him, and voted for him every time.
