RNC: “Give It To Me”

On Thursday, the Republican National Committee published a news release and video detailing Obama’s willingness to take responsibility for the economic situation in America and the results.

Obama Fails

Obama: “My administration has a job to do as well. That job is to get this economy back on its feet. That’s my job, and it’s a job I gladly accept. I love these folks who helped get us in this mess and then suddenly say, ‘Well this is Obama’s economy.’ That’s fine. Give it to me. My job is to solve problems, not to stand on the sidelines and carp and gripe. So, I welcome the job. I want the responsibility.”(President Barack Obama, Remarks At Macomb Community College, Warren, MI, 7/14/09)

Why Isn’t the Obama Plan Working?

The Obama plan is failing because the plan is not focused on rescuing the economy through private sector jobs and a better business climate. Obama has spent the sum of his tenure pandering to Big Labor, green energy and Wall Street. He’s sent his NLRB attack dog after Boeing, imposed a moratorium on drilling, wants to raise taxes on entrepreneurs and more. The stimulus mainly went into the pockets of the unions and did nothing for the employment picture. Obama’s gifting of GM to the unions at the cost of the tax payer is a further demonstration of the administrations desire to help unions at any cost to the country.

Quite simply, Obama’s plan is failing because it was never intended to help any of us – the people.

    Excuse me if I hold such Oba-promises in extremely low esteem when they come from demonRATic politicians.The Oba-usurper is about, in my not so humble opinion, bringing down this capitalist system to enable a latter-day socialism to rise out of the ashes. All his past political companions, teachers, influences and radical pals prove that.

    Just a little historical retrospective on demonRATic promises:
    1982 – Democrats offered President Reagan $2 in spending cuts for every $1 in tax increases. The tax increases went through by a demonRATic congress over a Reagan veto. The spending cuts didn’t. The demonRASTs lied. The deficit increased.(1)

    Democrats offered President Bush $3 in spending cuts for every $1 in tax increases. The tax increases went through. The spending cuts didn’t. The deficit increased.Check it out> AP Furious GOP Won’t Fall For Old Dem Trap(2)

    1997 – Republicans and President Clinton cut spending and net taxes (there were some increases, but more decreases). Check it out> “Republicans Keep Their Promise: Balancing the Budget and Reducing Taxes”(3)

    Well…golllllly! Faith in the capitalist system plus spending cuts plus net lower taxes = a balanced budget!
    You could look it up! I just did. Just last year, the Oba-usurper’s own fiscal commission just offered up the same $3. for $1. dollar deal, but Obama himself ain’t buyin’ it, nor is Dame Pelosi. So you’ve got to ask any remaining liberal and independent friends you might have left the appropriate question:
    Who is the real enemy of the state and We the People here?
