Riiiiiight. Obama's about as focused on the economy about as much as my
ADHD five year old is focused on the economy... ...and ironically,
they're both about as effective at helping it.
Interestingly the Post ran an article the other day saying that a large portion
of Obama's $500,000 and up supporters were gay activists, and that they had
threatened to pull their support if he didn't do what he did. He
hasn't spoken out against the activist who have proclaimed war on religion
(especially Mormons), and has seemed supportive, but he probably knew it
wouldn't help to publicly announce his support for the activist agenda. On
the other hand, they seem to have him in their pockets.....I'd try to
change the subject to the economy also.
Obama's trying to put aside heated issues like gay marriage.His
plan: Tell the world he has changed his stance on gay marriage.Yeah,
that's about as much of a refocus as Obama's plan to "change"
our economy.I once heard someone say something along the lines of
"Everything that happens in Washington, you can bet happens on purpose."
There is a lot of truth to that. Obama saying "Hey everyone, I just changed
positions on something heated" and all the sudden "Let's focus on
the economy"...? Yeah, that isn't refocusing, it's a calculated
election move. I wouldn't expect any less calculation from Romney or any
other candidate as all modern politics is. I would just use a different word for
it.We lost real debates, we're losing our right to vote, and
now our campaign system is like a commercial advertisement that has nothing to
do with the real product offered. Campaigns should include something like the
pharmaceutical commercials- "may cause a stroke, death and other side
effects, but it will make everything else better". That way with all the
calculation fed to us we'd at least get a disclaimer.
Romney might be able to refocus on the economy but Obama can't Obama has
never focused on the economy. He can't refocus. He would be focusing on it
for the first time.Up to this point he had been busy "Never
wasting a crisis."
This is like the start of the Rocky and Bullwinkle show.Obama: Hey
America! Watch me pull a rabbit outta my hat!America: Again? But that
trick NEVER works.Obama: This time for sure!
No one who's posted here was going to vote for obama anyway, and miserable
vitriol isn't making things better for anyone. It's good that they are
committing to focus on the economy instead of these idiot social agenda
sideshows. Let's get on with it.
Hutterite,"No one who's posted here was going to vote for
obama anyway, and miserable vitriol isn't making things better for
anyone."I think I will forever remember this comment every time
you criticize the LDS Church on here. Unless you feel that miserable and bitter
comments that don't do any good are only justified for attacking the LDS
Church as you frequently do. Bitter complaints about a religion somehow differ
from bitter complaints about a politician. Cause that double-standard just makes
a ton of sense.
This President chose a Secretary of the Treasury that could pull his head out of
the sand. The President has been doing everything in the world to spend, spend
and spend without having any type of a real budget for his time in office. He
even spends outside the budget process for TARP, Obamacare and everything a
foreign country wants from us from the debtor's prison. John McCain chose
not to focus on the budget and that gave Obama the free reigns he wanted during
his campaign then, his term as President and now his campaign again. He has no
idea of what it takes to deal with real business. He looks down on us as
citizens and his wife definitely has and does. They act as if an average
citizen has no brain, intellect or commonsense. They are the only ones that do.
They can take vacations and trips ad infinitum at our expense. Their cabinet
and campaign people think the same way. From their 4-year ago process for us is
that we Hope it Changes with the duly elected office of President of the United
States of America. He attacks anyone with moral values and Integrity.
"Earlier this year, Obama proposed lower lending rates.... Obama would pay
for the estimated $5 to $10 billion cost with a fee on large banks. But that
plan faces an uphill fight in Congress. The White House says it would not insist
on the bank fees to finance the plan." If Romney had said anything like
that, not to "insist on the bank fees to finance the plan," the country
would be up in arms that he wants to favor big business (the banks.)
