Another Democrat Strawman dying a fiery economic death

As The Wall Street Journal points out:

On Friday the White House blamed the third slowdown of its four-year term on Republicans for blocking the President’s policies, but what policies are they talking about? In his first two years in office, Democrats gave Mr. Obama everything he wanted, save for cap and trade and union card-check, which would have done even more harm to job creation. They passed stimulus, ObamaCare, multiple housing bailouts, Dodd-Frank and more.

Even after Republicans took the House, they gave Mr. Obama the payroll tax holiday he demanded first for 2011 and again for 2012. Far from some new fiscal “austerity,” overall federal spending hasn’t declined. Meanwhile, the Federal Reserve has delivered monetary stimulus after stimulus—QE I, QE II, Operation Twist, and 42 months of near-zero interest rates with the promise of 30 months more.

Mr. Obama has had the freest run of policy of any President since LBJ. So maybe the problem is the policies.

I’d compare President Obama to a petulant, spoiled teenager throwing tantrums towards all bad news attached to his behaviors…. but that would be a huge disservice to petulant, spoiled teenagers everywhere.   Some of them grow up, ya know.

So, keep those little nuggets handy the next time a liberal ivory tower dweller starts spouting the ‘Obstructionist Republican’ baloney.   The fairy tale is over liberalism, you can’t tell us socialism hasn’t had a chance.   It’s had many score of chances… and they’ve all failed.

    I need to start printing off each of these blog posts and carrying them in a notebook for easy reference when I have occasional chats with lib friends. I’ve deliberately NOT gotten into any political stuff on FB (except for a closed group I’m part of) because I have “job anxiety” in my non-tenured teaching position. When I read the things the lib “friends” write, I’m sorely tempted, at times, to jump into the fray. Will probably stick with music & humor posts for now, but keep yours coming!

  2. Send them here. I love a friendly chat about liberalism. :0)

  3. This is O/T, but go to you tube and put in Nou Nou D’Enfer and watch an interesting video ~ you may have seen it already, but if not, you will find the coming nanny state of interest….
