Obama Democrats constantly whine that their out-of-control spending is the fault of the Republicans. Sometimes it’s the bunch that took majority control of the House of Representatives in January 2011. Sometimes it’s the long-retired former President Bush.
It’s little wonder Democrats are so shrill. There is a saying in legal circles:
When you have the facts on your side, argue the facts. When you have the law on your side, argue the law. When you have neither, holler and pound the table.
Every day that goes by under the dangerously inept leadership of Barack Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, the federal government borrows another three and a half BILLION DOLLARS. Every DAY! What’s going to happen the day we run out of rich people stupid enough to lend to us? Or worse, when China decides to simply foreclose on all our freedoms?
Anybody with two brain cells to rub together should be able to figure out that chronic, unrelenting debt is unsustainable. Democrats are so hot on sustainable energy. Why don’t they care about a sustainable ECONOMY?
Senator Obama PRETENDED to care when he was running for president. He called Bush’s deficit spending irresponsible and unpatriotic. But did he and his cronies even ATTEMPT to reduce or even contain it? No.
They MULTIPLIED it by more than 400%.
What’s “irresponsible” times four? Criminal?
What’s “unpatriotic” times four? Treasonous?
Please. When you go to vote this fall, remember that condoms should never be reused or recycled.
