Obama in the news for three things today: Tom Daschle; S-CHIP; and bailout stipulations.
It's bad enough that Obama is trying to push for his version of the economic stifling plan spending more money than a drunk at a titty bar (and with the same end result), but his latest antics are so far left, we might as well call him Barack Bolshevik, and his socialist buddies, like Reed, Rangell and Pelosi, are treating him like a puppy. Aside from his charisma, Barack Bolshevik has proven himself to be a poor leader - maybe a good organizer for the democrat communisty, but a piss poor leader nonetheless.
The only incling of leadership skills Barack Bolshevik demonstrated was with the handling of Tom Daschle. The minute word leaked out that Daschle didn't pay his taxes (the second pick by Obama who fails to pay his taxes by the way), Barack Bolshevik got up and took the heat and said it was all his fault. In his own words that the organized community can understand, "I goofed" - for the San Fransisco crowd Obama held a separate press conference where he danced and sang the Brittney Spears hit "Oops I Did it Again." I don't care what anyone says, I think Obama did a good job clearing the air, taking the blame, and trying to regain the public's trust. the whole dancing around in the speedo thing was totally unecessary though.
Barack Bolshevik signed into law a new SCHIP bill that got killed in the previous Congress with a few minor modifications - including giving illegal alien children health coverage. Yeah, that will stop them from coming over our borders! Please understand: I am not very concerned with Jose who denounces his alliegence to Mexico, forfeits all his documentation at the Mexico embassy, opens up a taco stand, gets an ITIN, and pays his taxes. What I am concerned with it Fattah Muhammed the Jihadist from Iran crossing over the border with his family, using our tax dollars to give his kids health care, and blowing up our buildings afterwards - this is the real threat with illegal immigration. I am also concerned with those who will come over to this country illegally (I'm not talking about undocumented aliens) just to take advantage of the quality of our health care at the expense of our tax dollars while they pay none. Folks, the new SCHIP amendment is going to cheat us of our tax dollars worse than a blind woman playing scrabble with gypsies.
Finally, there's the new set of mandates for bailout applicants: no salaries over $500,000 and you can only accrue stock options and cash them in when the loan has been paid in full. You will also be disallowed the opportunity to buy key assets that can save you on tax dollars. On the one hand, you can say that if you're a corporate executive applying for a loan on behalf of the company - no matter who the lender is - you will be subject to stipulations with respect to the use of the loan proceeds. The new government stipulations will also prevent big business from applying for these bailout loans and asking for more welfare money. On the other, such mandates are unconstitutional, result in a transfer of wealth, and socialize commerce. I think it would simply be better to tell businesses that you're not offering any bailout loans in your administration. At that time, the free market will have to make some adjustments - if a company is really hurting it will make the necessary changes to survive. I have said it time and time again: if the government really wants to stimulate the economy, let them invest in small businesses that want to grow and hire people. Instead, our socialist friends on the Hill are letting people lose their homes and live off the hand of the government.
