Chaos Defined, Or A Perfect Plan?

What the hell is actually going in in this country?

The prospect of nationalized banks? Bailouts for people who can't afford their mortgages? A trillion dollar spending bill which legitimizes every liberal fantasy ever hatched?

Is all this a coordinated effort to to implement a socialistic transformation of our government and welfare?

Obama's continued degradation of our nation's economic strengths are either a by product of idiocy, or a brilliantly dangerous plan to punish successful free enterprise.

Were all the "porky" items in the Porkulus bill really put there to divert our attention away from the numerous welfare initiatives that were injected into the bill?

Was the shear size of the Porkulus bill imposed so efforts like the $75 billion foreclosure boondoggle don't seem so expensive and unfair?

Are the "porky" amendments in the omnibus bill put in there so that we don't pay attention to the bulk of the spending, which has yet to be shown as "transparent"?

Is the continued slide of Wall Street a desired and orchestrated effort? A perpetual crisis aimed at keeping Americans scared so the Obama administration and the liberals in congress can keep enacting legislation to transmogrify our capitalistic institutions?

Are the attacks on Rush Limbaugh, a private citizen, made just to have someone to demonize, since George W. Bush isn't around for them to blame the country's maladies?

Are all of these just "distractions" which have popped up during their time since elected, or have they all been concocted to keep the conscience of America off the real issues that they are attempting to advance?

Are they really that crafty, or do they just have absolutely no idea of how to operate a government?

Either way, it's a scary situation.

Damned right it is. Don't pay attention to that man behind the curtain.

mag:

I feel the same as you do. At best Obama is inexperience and at worst a socialist. I am wondering how many people really regret voting for him. Surely not the ones looking for a hand out from the rest of us, or the screwy left, or the know-everything youth/students, or the people who swear by unions, but the others who were looking for "change" or anyone but Bush. Look at his past (even his family both the white & black side were socialist/communist/sympathizers...at least from what I read. His mentors were communist....what hell did everyone expect??????????

WildWillie:

Barry is most definitely inexperienced which leaves him wide open to be manipulated by democratic operatives. I find it embarassing that a presidential spokesman takes up podium time to talk about tv and radio hosts. It cheapens the presidency. But then again, what do you expect?

No, this spending is by design because Rahm Emmanual said it best; "Don't let a good crisis go to waste." They are taking advantage of the citizens of this country. The worst part is Barry bet the farm. ww

Is the continued slide of Wall Street a desired and orchestrated effort?

It's an inevitability when so much of the value of your entire economy was predicated upon the value of banks' assets and the stability of credit markets. With so many "assets" being revealed to be essentially worthless, what else could possibly happen to the stock market?

But yes, it's Obama's fault that Wall Street CEOs are a bunch of lying, scheming, greedy douchebags. Pass it on: Tim Geithner is an asshole.

I believe this is absolutely intentional by Obama. I think the rest of the administration and Congress is clueless. Look up Cloward-Pliven Strategy. Obama is bringing on his new America. He said he wants to "fundamentally change' America. Well...he is.

It is all a way of hiding Obama's promise of "reparations" the Rev. Wright crowd.

If he had called it what it was, it would have never passed.

"I consistently believe that when it comes to whether it's Native Americans or African-American issues or reparations, the most important thing for the U.S. government to do is not just offer words, but offer deeds," he said.

OLDPUPPYMAX:

Indeed it is quite deliberate, quite well planned and thought out and extremely dangerous to the liberty of every actual American. But strangely enough, perhaps it will provide the jolt the fat, dumb, lazy and thoroughly spoiled people of the nation need to overthrow the leftist influence which has ruined our economy, silenced our speech and made the US a laughing stock across the world.

Just heard a poll that 2 out of 3 people believe Obama is doing a great job and that he won't be able to fix the economy in the next two years. Those who voted for him (with the help of the media) will never admit they were wrong for not vetting this guy. I'm not sure there is anything that will wake them up to what's happening.

You people remind me of an old song which couldn't be more apropos for the wingnuttery. Here's the last verse. You might think about making it your anthem:

"They're coming to take me away, ha-haaa.
They're coming to take me away, ho-ho, hee-hee, ha-haaa.
To the funny farm, where life is beautiful all the time and I'll be happy
to see those nice young men in their clean white coats and they're coming
to take me away, ha-haaa!!!
To the happy home, with trees and flowers and chirping birds and basket
weavers who sit and smile and twiddle their thumbs and toes and they're
coming to take me away, ha-haa!!!
To the funny farm, where life is beautiful all the time... (fade out)

Hey, buddy!

Carol:

Sorry, I should have elaborated. It was a mainstream media poll of "supposed" average Americans -- you know, the same individuals during the election who were star struck by the Messiah. Sad thing is those who voted for Obama will either never admit they were wrong or defend him no matter how much damage he does.

Rance:

The cat is out of the bag. The Democrats long ago set in motion their master plan to socialize the country. They tricked the Bush administration into the Iraq war so the the deficit would be run up. They lured the banks into sub-prime mortgages. They pushed the Wall Streeters into default credit swaps. All in anticipation of the Obama victory.

Now they are springing the trap.

Why don't you ask your own party how budgets and spending bills work?

If it's budget time, it's good to be a red state.

...
Mississippi Republican Sen. Thad Cochran led his colleagues by raking in more than $470 million in 204 earmarks. Mississippi's junior Republican, Roger Wicker, pulled in more than $390 million.
...
Senate Democrats and Republican ate roughly the same amount from the government trough on a solo basis, although Democrats have one and half times as many members.

Of the top ten earmarking senators... only three of the top ten are blue states. In the top 20, only six blue states are represented.

No it's not, they are in fact just a "bunch of lying, scheming, greedy douchebags."

However, given the Dow Jones Industrial Average is generally regarded as an indicator of the future, not just what was traded on a given day, Obama's long string of "worst economy since the Depression" pronouncements of doom and gloom has had a definite effect.

Well, marc, in the future, the Dow will have to recover what it lost when everybody realized what a giant steaming pile of shit the American financial sector is (along with the housing and automotive sectors, too, though that news should have been less shocking to people not in a coma for the past three years).

You want good economic news? Find some 12 month old episodes of Larry Kudlow's show on YouTube. It isn't Obama's job to lie about the economy, even if by lying about it he might improve public perception thereof. You don't live in the Soviet Union.

Well then, he doing a mighty fine job for free then.

His constant and incessant "talking point" that the U.S. economy is the "worst since the Great Depression" is either a large pile of BS (i.e. a LIE), or he's more ignorant of history them I have imagined.

JLawson:

I think Obama's vision of the Presidency is a lot like Clinton's was in '92. He won, the country will play "Obama Says" for his tenure, and that's that.

But it isn't. The President isn't the RULER of our country, he's the LEADER. A ruler forces his choices on a country - a leader leads the country in the direction he thinks it should go.

And Obama's got little leadership experience of any sort. He's got a flair for oratory (as long as he's got good speechwriters and a teleprompter) and he's got... um... well.. a lot of experience rising up through the Chicago political machine.

Other than that, he's not got much that's prepared him to lead the country. He's never been a mayor or governer, or even a city councilman. His 'community organizing' was self-described as a failure, his assistant management of the Annenburg Challenge produced no visibule result, and his one notable project as a state Senator, Grove Parc - was a disaster.

Shawn asked "Are the attacks on Rush Limbaugh, a private citizen, made just to have someone to demonize, since George W. Bush isn't around for them to blame the country's maladies?"

I think so. Obama can't avoid the results of his 'changes' so far - but he can sure 'hope' to deflect the criticism and charges he doesn't know what he's doing. And what better way to do it than the ways he used in Chicago? Find a prominent enemy, discredit him in the media, wait for him to go away - lather, rinse, repeat.

But there's a problem with that. Over on Instapundit, we find the following.

Reader C.J. Burch emails: "Obama is discovering that he has no power at all over people that do not give a damn what the media thinks. If other Republicans were less craven he would be in deep trouble, instead of just headed for deep trouble."
Obama's gotten himself into a no-win situation. If the economy keeps going the way it's heading - he'll need a scapegoat. If the scapegoat doesn't cooperate, Obama's going to look ridiculous. And at least SOME of the folks around him are starting to realize the problem.
Washington Times - WH admits Limbaugh attacks unhelpful

The White House on Wednesday fessed up to lowering the quality of public discourse and acknowledged that its sniping at radio show host Rush Limbaugh has been "counterproductive," even as Democratic political committees continued to use the issue in a political line of attack approved by the Obama administration itself.
Hell of a show - but I sure don't like the idea of having to pay to watch it...

Bruce Henry:

There's your problem right there, Mr Lawson -- you're getting your information from commenters on Instapundit and from Rev. Moon's Washington Times.
