But this is really just the tip of the iceberg.
Because Obama makes statements like this:
I said, I believe in American workers, I believe in this American industry, and now the American auto industry has come roaring back. Now I want to do the same thing with manufacturing jobs, not just in the auto industry, but in every industry.
Dear God in Heaven! EVERY INDUSTRY!
So we’re all supposed to run businesses like GM
Bloated union salaries. CEOs that are answerable not to boards and shareholders but to czars and wanna-be dictators. Practices that violate the bedrock principles of capitalism and screw shareholders out of their investment. No really the stock is in near free fall. Run your company to near bankruptcy by building overpriced green death traps that explode and that no one wants to buy. Lose your government investment somewhere in the realm of 25 Billion Dollars. A company that while going under is investing 600 Million in a British soccer team…??? And that is just a highlight of the problems with GM. This company has become so dysfunctional from top to bottom that the millisecond government help stops it will crumble like a house of cards in a hurricane.
God help us. If we ran every company in the nation like this cluster!@#$ the Dark Ages would look advanced by the time Obama was done.
So why does Obama want to run every industry like GM…hmmm…let’s see. That would mean that the government would own a large portion of the every company and the president would have the ability to fire every CEO and would have the power to appoint his people to run every industry.
Hey what do you call that where the government owns and runs every business?
It starts with an S….um…shit for brains…serious deluded…senseless…stupid…all good answers…but no, I think the word I’m looking for is SOCIALISM.
His words, not mine.
Now I want to do the same thing with manufacturing jobs, not just in the auto industry, but in every industry.
He wants to do the same thing he did with the auto industry, a complete government take over and revoking of basic principles, with every industry.
Go on, I really want to hear from liberals how that isn’t a textbook definition of socialism. Government ownership and control of every industry.
Granted you could go with he’s a blithering idiot and doesn’t know what the hell he’s saying, which I fully am willing to buy…but that is just as much an argument against him being allowed to go back for four more years.
But while I do believe Obama makes Forrest Gump look like Sherlock Holmes, I believe he meant and understood (well as well as Obama’s limited mind can understand anything). He wants to control everything. I don’t know if it’s because he believes he can make it better (to hell with the lack of evidence) or because he wants to destroy the whole system. It doesn’t matter. He does want to be in control of everything, of every aspect of government and industry. And just ignoring the horrific despotic and unconstitutional overtones of that idea…let’s not forget that he has wrecked GM and it will go down within the next few years, only it will be worth less when we sell off the parts to other car companies, it will have hurt every taxpayer who has to eat the loss, and this whole debacle will have delayed real growth and real recovery. (And all of this ignores that eventually the courts will find that the Obama administration broke numerous laws in screwing over the bond holders which will cost the government a massive bundle of cash to boot).
This is true of GM and of industry Obama has or wants to get his hands on. This is true not only of Obama but of government in general. And Obama wants more government.
To hell with just “You didn’t build that” he wants complete socialism.
And half the country doesn’t see a problem with this?
A final point. Even though Obama is clearly a socialist (and an idiot, and an asshole, and a wannabe tyrant…and worse), many conservatives are still clamoring and screaming about the fact that Romney isn’t going to war against Obama, about him being too cowardly or being too nice and calling Obama out as the socialist he is. Yeah because Reagan won the election calling Carter a communist anti-Semite whose utter lack of intelligence makes you question how much inbreeding is going on down in Georgia…oh wait, no, Reagan ran a quiet campaign on the issues. Romney is running an intelligent campaign to win by a landslide, not a campaign to make the base feel good about itself; he’s running to make sure conservative ideals become policy, not to just spout conservative platitudes. He’s sitting quietly right now raking in cash, while Obama burns through his entire reserve just to keep the polls static. Romney will spend his money in the last months when it will actually have an effect on Election Day, while Obama will be broke by October. Besides with Obama saying crazy shit like this, why would you need to campaign, Obama’s mouth is already the best campaigner for Romney there is.
