Obama needs his License Revoked

"After they drove the car into the ditch, made it as difficult as possible for us to pull it back, now they want the keys back. No. You can't drive. We don't want to have to go back into the ditch. We just got the car out."

- Barack Obama, attempting to prove that his party should be re-elected (And proving that he thinks you, the average voter, has no idea what's going on.)

Someone should go tell Obama to go take a look at his poll numbers. He's not doing so hot - and neither is Congress. He had this cute little metaphor that if you want to go forward you put the car in 'D' not 'R'. In this little metaphor, Obama is saying that if you vote Democrat, he can get you out of the ditch, but not if you vote Republican. Of course, this little metaphor might work better if he hadn't put the car into gear and then drove it into the ditch.

Obama has once again proved how out of touch with reality he is. The economy failed in the latter end of George Bush's term largely because of the housing bubble, which was built up by Democrats to start with! Then Obama came along promising change and put the car even further in the ditch by killing job wherever he found them and terrorizing the economy.

He's attempted to kill drilling jobs with his oil drilling moratorium. He's killed jobs at tanning salons by raising new taxes on them. He's trying to limit how many fish fisherman can catch and therefore reduce the profits the fishermen get. And those are just a few examples of what he's done to ruin this economy.

Back when he was running for President, Obama made another incredibly stupid remark, this one about wanting trickle-up economics. It's been a while since I took economics and heaven knows I'm no businesswoman, but even I know a dumb idea when I hear it. That dumb statement doesn't just defy economics, it also defies gravity.

In nature, when water flows down from a lake, it waters everything on the way down. It never trickles back up to where it came from. And the same principle works in economics. (Which I'm going to go out on a limb and assume Obama failed.) Rich people have money, and when they're not running scared that the government will take their money away from them, they invest it in the stock market. This gives companies more money which allows them to expand and hire more people. As money trickles down it helps everyone. It can't trickle up; poor people don't invest in the economy enough to make a difference.

So thanks for nothing Obama. You did NOT ever get that car back out of the ditch, you got it stuck in there deeper, and you're happy about it because it lets you push your dumb socialist agenda.

It's time to revoke Obama's licence. November 2012 can't come fast enough.


  1. Obamacare itself is the biggest jobkiller even invented. Employers are frozen in their tracks in fear of what's coming. And who can blame them.

  2. Good point, I'd forgotten about that. And if I had employees I'd be terrified of Obamacare too. What a sneaky way to drive costs through the roof and thereby reduce employer's profits. (But then again, Obummer apprently thinks all profits are evil, unless they're being donated to his re-election fund.)

  3. Unless the profits go directly into Obama's pocket, of course.

  4. Barack Obama is a dyed-in-the-wool socialist. Anyone who doubts that is not paying attention. It is his aim for more and more people to lose their jobs. The more people he can make dependent on the government, the better. That's where Democrats get their power. Make people dependent on the government for their existence, and they'll vote for you as long as you keep the goodies coming. Control is the issue here, first and foremost.

  5. @ Opus: yep. Either to his re-election fund or into his pockets. other than, profits are evil.

    @ Jennifer: Yes he is. And yes control is the issue. I for one do not want to be dependent on the government for my livelihood. (Which I suppose makes me a problem in Obama's playbook.)

    Thank you both for your comments!
