I Can’t Afford Anymore “Change”
October 29, 2008 · No Comments
Tonight is the big Obamamercial on tv tonight. He’s just lucky he did’nt schedule half hour last night and interfere with me watching NCIS. That would have really pissed me off. Thank g-d for “On Demand” cable, so while the Obamessiah is selling you his snake oil he calls “Hope & Change”, I’ll be watching something else like “Lethal Weapon 3″ or a CSI rerun.
I got to thinking today, George Bush has been President for almost 8 yrs. We have not experienced the horror of another attack from Islamofacists since 9/11, and for the first 6 yrs of his Leadership the economy for all general purposes has been good. We’ve had high levels consumer confidence and gas prices that at an average were around $2.25 a gallon, low unemployment and the stock market was setting records with the Dow Jones average at around 14000. Americans were spending money on trips and cars. Then “Change” happend.
In 2006, Americans gave the Democrats the majority in both the House of Reprentatives and the Senate. What do we have to show for that now? All that “Change” the Democrats have promised has left us with less change in our pockets. Home Foreclosures are at a record high, the value of our homes (equity) has fallen, gas was over $4.00 a gallon, the Dow Jones Stock Average took a nose dive, and consumer confidence is now at an all time low.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t think I can afford any more “Change” that the Democrats have in store for us, particularly Barack Obama who wants to take “Change” from those who work and turn it into cash for those who don’t by “Spreading The Wealth”.
Memo to Barack Obama……Keep the change!
Barack Obama will face an international crisis early in his presidency, Joe Biden warns, fueling Republican charges that the Democratic presidential candidate's own running mate admits Obama is a blank slate in the face of coming national security threats.
Speaking in Seattle on Sunday, Biden said he could guarantee that the world will want to find out if Obama is up to the job, which he assured voters he is.
"Mark my words. It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking," Biden said.
"Remember I said it standing here. if you don't remember anything else I said. Watch, we're gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy. And he's gonna have to make some really tough -- I don't know what the decision's gonna be, but I promise you it will occur. As a student of history and having served with seven presidents, I guarantee you it's gonna happen," Biden continued.
"Just last night, Senator Biden guaranteed that if Senator Obama is elected, we will have an international crisis to test America's new president," reads a memo from the McCain campaign. "We don't want a president who invites testing from the world at a time when our economy is in crisis and Americans are already fighting in two wars. ...
"Senator Obama wont have the right response, and we know that because we've seen the wrong response from him over and over during this campaign. ... We cannot spend the next four years as we have spent much of the last eight: hoping for our luck to change at home and abroad. We have to act. We need a new direction, and we have to fight for it," the statement said.
