In October Obama Tells New Orleans He’s Prepared
“Hope and Change”, where is it? In October of 2009 President Obama was quick to jump on Air Force One and bash Bush for his lack of preparedness on Katrina. He told the people of New Orleans that he would be prepared for disaster. But where has he been? When it was his turn he showed up a little late. He has spent over 40 days dodging the oil spill calamity. And he shows little sign of vision for the future.
An Expert On Oil Spills, Not On What To Do About Them
Obama made his first trip over a month after the start of the disaster. When you watch videos of his trip you can’t help but notice that he’s more interested in showing you what an ‘oil spill expert’ he is then he is about what he is going to do about this major problem. Why? Probably because he doesn’t know.
This from Perry Noonan’s May 29th article in the Wall Street Jounal:
His philosophy is that it is appropriate for the federal government to occupy a more burly, significant and powerful place in America—confronting its problems of need, injustice, inequality. But in a way, and inevitably, this is always boiled down to a promise: “Trust us here in Washington, we will prove worthy of your trust.” Then the oil spill came and government could not do the job, could not meet the need, in fact seemed faraway and incapable: “We pay so much for the government and it can’t cap an undersea oil well!”
This is what happened with Katrina, and Katrina did at least two big things politically. The first was draw together everything people didn’t like about the Bush administration, everything it didn’t like about two wars and high spending and illegal immigration, and brought those strands into a heavy knot that just sat there, soggily, and came to symbolize Bushism. The second was illustrate that even though the federal government in our time has continually taken on new missions and responsibilities, the more it took on, the less it seemed capable of performing even its most essential jobs. Conservatives got this point—they know it without being told—but liberals and progressives did not. They thought Katrina was the result only of George W. Bush’s incompetence and conservatives’ failure to “believe in government.” But Mr. Obama was supposed to be competent.

Still A Long Road To Go
Barack Obama has over two years left in office. We can only hope that we make it through that time without the crisis of another 9-11 attack. Contemplate how he would handle it. If that doesn’t scare you very little will.
This man does not have the competence to manage a small corporation, much less that to run the most powerful nation on this earth.

Imagine someone had come to you in the spring of 2008 and told you we would be where we are today. You would not have believed such a transformation could occur. In less than 18 months we have added $2 Trillion to our national debt. Our economy is in it’s worst period since the Great Depression. Our political leaders are contemplating granting amnesty to illegal aliens. And a bill has passed to nationalize the health care system. But it will not be implemented until Obama has left office.
If someone had told you this is where we would be, you would have laughed. Well, here we are.
Obama’s Trip To Buffalo
Obama gives himself credit for saving us from another great depression. You can see it in the video below. He is too short sited to see that our economy didn’t start it’s free fall until he came on the scene in the political arena. The investors in our country saw a man on the way in early 2008. A man who was making promises that couldn’t be kept. Fear caused them to pull there assets our of the US economy. They took their money to China and India. Our stock market plummeted and employers started laying off workers.
President Obama complains about being left with a $1.3 Trillion deficit. But he has added more that $2 Trillion to the deficit in less than 18 months. Where will this be by the time he is thrown out of office in 2012?
Obama talks about keeping the American dream alive, but he is doing nothing to keep the American dream alive. Americans are more dependent on government than they ever have been. Our economy is growing again despite a President who has no experience in how the economy works. Why is it growing? It is growing because we are getting closer to his final days in power.
The Small Business Agenda
Obama tells us we are “on a course that is working”. He talks about the incentives and the loans small businesses are now able to get thanks to legislation he has signed. Factories, stores and other businesses have closed their doors as a result of Obama’s pre-election threats. He threatened higher taxes and he threatened tighter restrictions on businesses. As a result, large businesses with adequate assets took the route of caution. They stopped investing their money in growth. And this killed many small businesses.

We ask you to connect us with businesses that are receiving the benefits Obama talks about. We can’t find them.

The general public is pissed at all politicians. The health care bill was forced down their throats. The video points out that the public is coming to wish they could get rid of all of our political leaders and start with new ones. That day is on the way.

Please let us know where we can find video to post on this blog where Obama takes a stand against BP. We’re wondering what he would be saying had BP not been such a significant contributor to his campaign.
While the BP oil geyser pumps millions of gallons of petroleum into the Gulf of Mexico, President Barack Obama and members of Congress may have to answer for the millions in campaign contributions they’ve taken from the oil and gas giant over the years.
BP and its employees have given more than $3.5 million to federal candidates over the past 20 years, with the largest chunk of their money going to Obama, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. Donations come from a mix of employees and the company’s political action committees — $2.89 million flowed to campaigns from BP-related PACs and about $638,000 came from individuals.
On top of that, the oil giant has spent millions each year on lobbying — including $15.9 million last year alone — as it has tried to influence energy policy.
During his time in the Senate and while running for president, Obama received a total of $77,051 from the oil giant and is the top recipient of BP PAC and individual money over the past 20 years, according to financial disclosure records.
