Obama Calls For More Spending As Public Grows Distrustful Of Democrats’ Strategy

September 8, 2010 by  

Obama calls for more spending as public grows distrustful of Democrats' strategyAs President Barack Obama prepares to call on lawmakers to pass more stimulus spending, a growing number of Americans are voicing their concerns over the ability of the Democratic party to handle the nation’s finances.

In a Labor Day speech, the president outlined a $50 billion plan to revamp the nation’s roads, railways and airports in an effort to stimulate the economy and get people back to work, according to The Wall Street Journal.

"All of this will not only create jobs now, but will make our economy run better over the long haul," he said, as quoted by the news source.

The announcement comes on the heels of a poll conducted by the CNN/Opinion Research Corporation, which shows that more Americans feel that Republicans would do a better job of handling the economy than Democrats, CNN reports.

The poll showed that 46 percent of Americans give the edge to the GOP, while 43 percent favor Democrats on the issue of the economy.

"That’s bad news for the Democrats, who in past elections have had large leads over the GOP on those domestic issues," polling director Keating Holland told the news source.

    In The Anointed One’s dream world, all it takes to lure suckers is the promise of easy money. It’s the political version of dangling a carrot in front of a horse. On paper (in lalaland), it always works.
    In the real world (the world that The Anointed One fears), easy money is a symptom of a corrupt mind. And since we’re talking about TAXPAYER dollars, The Anointed One is giving himself more than enough rope to bring down his corrupt, stinking administration. It couldn’t happen to a more ‘deserving’ guy, and it can’t happen fast enough.

    • spike

      So am I right in this? The annointed one (obama) thinks he’s going to get his spending spree by leveraging us with the tax cuts that are helping us about to expire, and by dangling that over our head, we are going to okay spending another 50 billion.

      • JLC

        Spike — That’s another 50 Billion that we DON’T have !!

    • 45caliber

      And I just saw a note that Oblama wants to give/is giving $1 billion to Mexico so they can drill more wells in the Gulf. But it is too dangerous for the same companies to drill in American waters…

      • bev

        45…Mexico and Brazil also. Soros, I believe gets the contract for that one. Oh…what times we live in. Meanwhile, our people along the coast who lost jobs are on the dole. Maybe Mexico will hire them for a few dollars per hour, IF they will get the proper documentation.

    • Carole Howell

      No one is promising anyone easy money. Remember Obama was criticized by many economists for not spending enough on the stimulus package to make it work. Catch that? Economists were telling him he was not doing enough.

      I don’t know about where you live, but here where I live we have a lot of road work going on in this state, badly needed I might add and that has put many people back to work, things would be much worse w/o these jobs.

      However, I think all the billions this Administration is spending on the construction of new Nuclear power plants would be better spent on power plants like Nevada One and other clean energy plants. That would create more jobs and reduce our dependence on foreign oil.

      These new nuke plants are dirty and present free weapons to our enemies that could be coming across our borders at any time. The nuclear plants themselves are a danger and the vehicles hauling the toxic waste they produce are potential targets. It has already been pointed out that the security with those plants are nil.

      Where Nevada One presents no threat.

        First of all, Obama spent billions in so many wrong directions & put our country in danger of going bankrupt. He totally screwed up the Cap & Trade. He gave money to big business, bail outs to companies that were supposed to help the citizens of this country who only helped themselves & gave millions out in bonuses to their own executives, gave money to special interest groups as well.

        He’s been criticized because he’s a major screw up!!! He’s still doing it!! He invited the Muslim Brotherhood Foundation & 40 mosque leaders to the WH on 8/31 to discuss “direct access” to stimulus grants & promised to help with the red tape. Duh!!!! Millions of people know that the Brotherhood Foundation finances HAMAS!!! Plus, we can’t afford to give more money to anyone for any reason.
        Throwing good money after bad does nothing for our economy.

        Obama refuses to tell the public anything about himself. Anyone can look up information on any other President & get facts. Not Obama. He’s spent millions hiding every document having to do with his life.
        What the hell is he hiding it from us for??? Maybe because he has no right being the President??

        He’s trying to remove Christianity from every area in the United States, while promoting Islam. He cancelled National Prayer Day at the WH but has had 2 Muslim religious functions at the WH. He says he’s a Christian but denounces Christianity constantly. Occidental College in Calif. is mostly Muslim students. The foundation this college has for student grants, etc. is for Muslim students.

        He Lies!!!! He’s deceitful. He’s the puppet of George Soros & this man hates America. All you have to do is read all the information out there on Soros. In his own words during an interview he says he wants to destroy America. Obama is following the Soros agenda & if we let him, we’ll soon be a socialist country. How would that fit into your schedule?

        I don’t even have the time to list all the “bad decisions” Obama has made, but one of the worst is ObamaCare. I want California to Nullify it. And that’s legal in any state.

        The majority of Americans want Obama discredited & out of the WH. I’m one of them. What little good that’s happened in this country did not come from him. It came from hard working Americans wanting to help Americans with jobs. And if certain companies gave jobs to people where you live, you can bet it was money given to them by your state, not the federal government. Or I should say, not Obama.

        • Carole Howell

          J Murphy,

          How much did Bush, Clinton, and other previous presidents tell us about themselves? Really.

          Do you seriously believe we would be better off today if McCain had won? Do you really think with all our politicians bought and paid for by Big Business and foreign officials it makes a difference who is president or what party controls the congress. Really?

          Bush never told a lie? Never?

          • http://?? Joe H.

            Carole,
            Actually bush opened his national guard records to all. The Dems were trying to convince the world that he went AWOL and he prooved that he didn’t! What has your hero NOBAMA proven about himself?? A certificate of birth that at that time anybody could get to show they had a child that was born live!! School records? NOPE! How he traveled to a country that was on the no-fly list? NAH! proven that he isn’t for partial birth Abortions? NOT A CHANCE!!
            Oh, and BTW if you and Nobama are so worried about what is being brought across the border, SEAL THE BODER!!!! We’ve only been trying to get the dems to allow that for years!!!

          • s c

            CH, stay on the topic. At this rate, you’ll never get past English 101. Do yourself a favor, and show an English instructor some of your Personal Liberty Digest rants. Then, get ready to endure some serious humiliation.
            You go out of your way to sound like a high school brat who relies on ‘chat’ English. Proof what you submit. You can do better. There’s very little difference between walking around with your pants down around your ankles and expressing yourself when your head and your mouth are not in sync. You have yet to learn that lesson.

      • spike

        CAROLE; There’s only so many roads and bridges you can build. And after that what happens? I am not qualified to build roads and bridges. Also, half the people in the unemployement lines don’t build roads and bridges–more than half. Nevada has one of the highest rates of Foreclosures and un employment in the nation. My best friend lives there. This is bullsh**, tell your state to build it’s own roads and bridges. I’m sick of paying for the roads and bridges that my truck IFTA TAXES AND HEAVY HIGHWAY USE TAXES, AND MY 2000 LICENSE PLATES ARE SUPPOSED TO PROVIDE. It’s a lie.

    Has anyone ever check out his finances?With all his buddies getting off the hook from their tax evasions maybe we should use him as an example!

      • dan az

        Hey Al
        I can smell the impeachment ink drying!

    • Carole Howell

      He did not make all that much money (well he was not poor either) until the sale of his books. He did not work for ACORN which was found innocent in court by-the-way. Did you fail to notice? I am not surprised.

      • dan az

        carole howell
        try again he was their attorney and so was his wife!this time look it up!

    • J. Murphy

      Mr. Dan of Ariz.

      Sir, do you actually believe that anyone in the U.S would even be able to “find” any financial records on Obama? Not until our court system will allow attorneys to subpoena all his records, will we ever beable to get any info on this poser.

      He spends tax payers money going on vacations, etc. while we’re left spinning in the wind.

      If any of you live by D.C. you might want to go to the big rally on Oct. 23rd by the State Bldg., I think. People are trying to make him show his birth certificate.

      If we all vote responsibly in Nov. we can get democrats out of congress for now. We’ve already shown them we mean business. Incumbents are being fired. We need to take back our country.

      This fool gets $400,00 annually & all the free benefits since he lives in the WH. Plus a $50,000 allowance. Not sure if that’s monthly. His wife also gets paid by us & has 28 people working for her. The most any other first lady had was 3 & that was Hillary C. And Mrs. O has the gall about preaching to us about saving money & helping our economy?? Screw her.

      Soros has put millions into Obama’s campaign, ACORN, all the unions & so much more. This is to help Obama bankrupt America. Oh, and Obama defended ACORN when he was an attorney in Ill.. He worked with two known terrorists (Ayers & wife) in Ayers’ dad’s company.

      I don’t know if Obama made his millions due to his book or if he’s just very clever at stealing our money. Either way, I hope he goes bankrupt.

  • DaveH

    So, taking money from the people doing the right things and giving it to the people who aren’t is going to boost the economy? Only Liberals could swallow that one.
    Please, Mr. President, give me some of that money. I promise I will waste it.

    • Warrior

      The large metropolitan areas are flat broke. Union jobless @ 40% +. Gotta come up with a plan quick (before Nov) to show my supporters I care.

      50 Bil for investment into infrastructure and high speed rail- yep.
      Fix those runways – yep

      (coincidence that mayor daly is about a cool billion short on finishing his o’hare RUNAWAY expansion!)

      Oh yes and now Emporer Daly is stepping down. Wait until this circus unfolds to see how the dems will orchestrate a nice dem replacement.

    • 45caliber

      Some stupid idiot came up with an idea awhile back. He stated that as long as the welfare wastrels spent every penny of their check each month, it would create more jobs therefore more tax money than what they spent. So the government would make money by giving them money to spend. Figure that one out. I couldn’t.

      • Carole Howell

        45caliber,

        You mean the people who were massively laid off and got unemployment benefits? Those people, much of my family who work in the oil fields and gas fields were laid off before he even took office, they all just started going back to work a few months ago.

        Look want happened to Michigan? California? Ohio? you are a cold assed son-of-gun man. These are your fellow Americans all hard workers up until wham, 8 million jobs were lost in a matter of months and that was before he was elected.

        You are calling these people names like that, we had tent cities spring up over night, there were a million homeless children in those homeless families pal, what kind of person are you? A NeoCon? do you even have a heart.

        With friends like you all around us we don’t need outside enemies.

        • http://?? Joe H.

          Carole,
          nice try lady(?)! HE said Welfare WASTRELLS!!! People that became unemployed in the last two or three years are not of that vernacular!!
          As far as California, their problems are directly related to illegals! The liberals have been spending and spending there for years on them. Also little porky projects like putting sand on an ocean front beach and watching it wash out with every storm and doing it all over again 5 millions a year!!! I’ll bet you thought it was to maintain tourism, right? BUZZZZZ! Wrong, it was in an area of rich libbies that complained that their beach was looking ragged and they didn’t want to spend THEIR money on it! Can you spell MOVIE PEOPLE???

      maybe we could convince him to try to by our votes for say 1 million tax free of course we wouldnt want him to play favorites over his buddies.

  • Jim H.

    If it hasn’t worked by now is it because we just didn’t do it hard enough? Taking a failed plan and doing it some more still won’t work. Some one should put that on B.O.’s teleprompter so he could know that too.

    • 45caliber

      Ever hear of the “dead horse theorm?” Basically it says that if you find yourself riding a dead horse, get off.

      But the government version goes deeper. Such as: “spend more money on it. Hire a contractor to get more work from the dead horse. Declare the dead horse ‘living impaired.’ Get a new whip. And if all else fails, promote the dead horse to a management position.”

      • http://?? Joe H.

        45caliber,
        Or vote it into office!!!!

    • Carole Howell

      Jim,
      If you are very sick and your doctor told you to take 2 pills a day to get well and you only took one, what do you think would happen? Economists where telling us he should have spent more money for the stimulus to work, now he is spending more, as he said he would if it were necessary. He was trying to do it on the cheap, it did not work. the economists were right after all.

      • Jim H.

        Carole, I think the pills you are talking about are the wrong prescription and if I take one I’ll just stay sick, but two will kill me. If you found the right prescription or even left it alone I would have a better chance. See I can make a parable too.

        • Carole Howell

          Jim,
          Are you an economist? They said he did not spend enough on it. Roosevelt spend a lot to get the economy going again. He put people to work building our infrastructure and it did work. People were literally starving in this country.

          I am old enough to have known people who grew up during the Great Depression and people who lived through the one before that.

          What would you have done in Obama’s place? Left it alone and let this country slip into a depression and starve? What the tent cities were not numerous enough for you, not enough homeless families for you?

          • Jim H.

            Carole, Even if I am not an economist, I know people who are and I ask questions and get answers. My friend has a degree in forestry so a I ask him what kind of tree to plant in my yard, so I don’t need to have that degree to find the right answer. As long as I have friends and family who have that education I can find out. The family member of mine that is an economist says that if left alone we would be much farther along the way to recovery, instead of even worse off than when Obama started. So yes I would have left it alone, so we could recover quicker. My parents and Grand parents lived during the depression too, so whats your point. Whats with the drama about tent cities and starvation? Not enough overbearing government and taxation for you?

    Hmmm, just a little information that I learned recently:

    1. President Barack Obama, former editor of the Harvard Law Review, is no longer a “lawyer”. He surrendered his license back in 2008 in order to escape charges he lied on his bar application.

    A “Voluntary Surrender” is not something where you decide “Gee, a license is not really something I need anymore, is it?” and forget to renew your license. No, a “Voluntary Surrender” is something you do when you’ve been accused of something, and you ‘voluntarily surrender” your license five seconds before the state suspends you.

    2. Michelle Obama “voluntarily surrendered” her law license in 1993.

    3. So, we have the first black President and First Lady – who don’t actually have licenses to practice law. Facts.

    Source: http://jdlong.wordpress.com/2009/05/15/pres-barack-obama-editor-of-the-Harvard-law-review-has-no-law-license/

    4. A senior lecturer is one thing. A fully ranked law professor is another. Barack Obama was NOT a Constitutional Law professor at the University of Chicago .

    5. The University of Chicago released a statement in March, 2008 saying Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) “served as a professor” in the law school-but that is a title Obama, who taught courses there part-time, never held, a spokesman for the school confirmed in 2008.

    6. “He did not hold the title of professor of law,” said Marsha Ferziger Nagorsky, an Assistant Dean for Communications and Lecturer in Law at the University of Chicago School of Law.

    Source: http://blogs.suntimes.com/sweet/2008/03/sweet_obama_did_hold_the_title.html ;

    7. The former Constitutional senior lecturer cited the US Constitution the other night during his State of the Union Address. Unfortunately, the quote he cited was from the Declaration of Independence . not the Constitution.

    8. The B-Cast posted the video: http://www.breitbart.tv/did-obama-confuse-the-constitution-with-the-declaration-of-independence/

    9. Free Republic: In the State of the Union Address, President Obama said: “We find unity in our incredible diversity, drawing on the promise enshrined in our Constitution: the notion that we are all created equal..

    10. Um, wrong citing, wrong founding document there Champ, I mean Mr. President. By the way, the promises are not a notion, our founders named them unalienable rights. The document is our Declaration of Independence and it reads:

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

      It is true that we are all “created equal”.

      But it is also true that we don’t remain that way after birth. If one person gets a college degree and another (partly his parents’ fault) doesn’t finish the third grade, they are NOT equal any longer. And I would not expect the third grader to get the same money that the college grad does when working.

      Jana it is not true.

          JoeH, CH seems to be a waste of time. She’s on her way to a college or a university, and she’s going “armed” with a head full of mush. Hopefully, she’ll have something better than a head full of mush when she gets a degree. However, I’m not going to hold my breath on that matter.
          With a whole lot of luck, America will still be a country worth living in when she’s ‘done.’ Her main problem is in picking a school where the instructors/profs aren’t already a herd of ranting progressives and mental defectives.

    Jihad Barak has been called a “neologicoan” by his fawning lackies in the main scream media. I agree but only if we apply the second definition: A psychotic who makes up meaningless words. Socialism is a mental disorder that impoverishes men and ruins nations. The apostles of socialism are a very dangerous species of criminal lunatic. It is time we cleans our institutions of socialist insanity. Let us begin on 11/2.

    • Carole Howell

      Randy and cut off all our socialist programs, like Social Security, the Veteran Administration, medicare and medicaid, our public health and sanitation departments, our public hiway systems, fire depts, police depts, Public transportation depts. Get rid of the Military, the CIA, The FBI, the Sheriff’s dept. Our county hospitals.

      Cut out all those socialist systems. What are you smokin?

    Borrowing Billions to repair roads and bridges, does nothing to stimulate the economy, it only places Americans just that much more in debt. Until the massive debts of individuals and businesses is wiped out, the economy will not improve.

    • 45caliber

      And individuals and companies with massive debts cannot pay them off as long as the government takes all their income to pay for all the special stuff the government wants.

      when you build roads what does it take?asphalt! what is it make of? oil and sand and rock where do you suppose the oil comes from?not here he put a moratoriam on that so who do you get it from? You guessed it iran!

    are you convinced yet with all this great campaign rhetoric. Lip service doesn’t make a leadership. Lets keep spending the American blood sweat and tears out of leadership arrogance at the expense to anger and polarize Americans to turn on its very self. Works great to play to hold power. I don’t see American limitation to answer the job market by only seeing them worthy of repairing or building roads to stimulate our economy.

    Are you convinced yet? How un-innovative is this ideal to use tax payers monies which they spend with disregard to repair roads and bridges, yet while at the same time shackling Americans to foreign oil by banning offshore drilling. I really don’t appreciate intellectual racism nor do I desire international “culturalism” at the expenses of American Culture or Constitutional Rights.

    There is a lot lacking in Washington…its called SDD. What that you ask? Spineless Deficit Disorder! Keep voting in this type or arrogance into office to hold power over your free will.

    A ‘Dream Crowd’ Devoted to God and Country
    By Robin Beres | TIMES-DISPATCH COLUMNIST
    While I don’t count myself a fan — his tears and emoting are a bit much — Glenn Beck isn’t the hate-mongering racist that some claim.

    While I don’t count myself a fan — his tears and emoting are a bit much — Glenn Beck isn’t the hate-mongering racist that Howard Dean, Leonard Pitts, and others claim he is. And many good, hardworking Americans put a lot of stock in Beck — average Americans who are concerned about the moral and fiscal direction this country has taken.

    So, it was out of curiosity that I went to Washington with my brother, Patrick, his son, Jack, and my daughter, Bridget, to attend Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally. None of us was quite sure what to expect. The rally was billed as apolitical — yet Sarah Palin was going to be there. How could an event not be political with her there?

    Left-wing pundits warned us in the days before that the event’s main focus was to steal Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s 1963 message of unity. Ed Schultz, of MSNBC’s “The Ed Show,” claimed that “the only thing the rally will be spreading is hate and intolerance.”

    John Batchelor, on The Daily Beast, dismissed the rally, claiming it would be about nothing at all, just a bland event promoted by FOX News to fill up dead summer space.

    But it wasn’t political, it wasn’t bland — and hate was nowhere to be seen.

    At times taking on an almost tent-revival atmosphere, the rally focused on rededicating the nation to God and remembering our military.

    Palin spoke, not as a politician, but as the mother of a combat veteran. She recognized the service of three decorated war heroes, retelling each man’s incredible story.

    There were other speakers — Native Americans, Hispanics, African-Americans, and whites — all of whom touched on issues of national pride and responsibility.

    Medals of recognition — merit badges, Beck called them — were presented to three Americans whose lives best defined the spiritual gifts of faith, hope, and charity.

    On this 47th anniversary of her uncle’s “I Have a Dream” speech, Dr. Alveda King spoke to the huge crowd, urging everyone to “focus not on elections or on political causes but on honor, on character . . . not the color of our skin.”

    King made frequent references to her uncle and she spoke of her own dream to see “a country less divided.”

    Yet, of all the speakers and the military heroes who were there, the rally’s most moving presence was not on stage — it was the crowd itself.

    Standing shoulder to shoulder, it was a demonstrably patriotic gathering, a group of people concerned that America has lost its footing and that Americans have lost their pride. These people had come to this rally, concerned not that our president is black, but that our fiscal bottom line is red.

    My brother summed up the day, noting how impressive it was to see “at least half a million people who want the U.S. to be a powerful nation again. It was important because it showed everyone who attended that there are half-a-million other people just like them who think this country can be restored to the bastion of individual rights our Founders intended. Beck’s message was that restoration is not going to come from some Ronald Reagan we have not found yet, but from within every individual who truly cares for this country and freedom. The Silent Majority has said, ‘We will not be silent any longer!’”

    We talked to a lot of people that day.

    We met a 73-year-old engineer from St. Petersburg, Fla., whose retirement dream home’s mortgage was underwater — and his savings decimated. He had flown up the night before and was flying back Saturday night. I asked him if the trip had been worthwhile and he smiled enthusiastically and replied, “Oh yeah!”

    We met two men from Texas who had driven 19 hours to get there. We talked to folks from South Carolina, Illinois, Maryland, Florida, Ohio, and California. The crowd was not — as columnist Stanley Crouch claimed — a bunch of “white Southern necks” with “a redneck agenda.” It was concerned citizens from across the nation worried about their homeland.

    Most of the men and women we spoke with owned or worked for small businesses. These were people who were accustomed to doing for themselves. One Park Police officer I talked to called it “a dream crowd.” They were well-behaved, well-mannered, and left behind park grounds nearly as spotless as they found them.

    The segment of society that was most overwhelmingly represented at the rally was veterans. Everywhere one looked were T-shirts and ball caps proclaiming each wearer’s service affiliation. Nearly all of the men and three of the women I spoke with were vets.

    The only overtly political episode we saw that day was a group of 20 or so African-Americans standing front and center at the base of the Lincoln Memorial, holding signs and chanting. Initially thinking it was a counterrally, we instead came upon a group of black conservatives holding signs stating, “The KKK Was Started by Democrats,” and “Martin Luther King was a Republican.”

    A delicious moment of irony occurred when a tall, strikingly beautiful woman in that group was approached by a man who asked her if she was the ACORN activist he’d seen on TV.

    She whipped out a retired military ID card and informed him, “ACORN?! No, sir! I am a retired lieutenant colonel, United States Marine Corps, and a practicing Roman Catholic! I have nothing to do with ACORN.”

    If you’ve ever seen a senior Marine Corps officer dress someone down, you can envision the red face, mumbled apology, and quick retreat of the gentleman she corrected.

    Veterans could be a key element in the conservative movement. What many left-wing commentators do not, or cannot, seem understand is that veterans — these folks who have done the fighting and the bleeding for this country — don’t give a fig about the color of a person’s skin. They are far more interested in the content of one’s character and his devotion to God and country.

    The day after the rally, President Obama told NBC’s Brian Wilson that he had mostly ignored the Beck rally, saying he had more important work to do during this political “silly season.”

    That’s his decision. He can choose to ignore Beck, ignore Palin, and every other speaker at the rally. But he should not ignore the crowd that attended.

    Beck may have been the draw, but as my brother noted, this crowd of Americans looked around and found strength and voice in one another. Patrick’s right: They won’t be silent any longer.

      I saw alot of veterans campaigning for Obama. On election day, inthe middle of a busy street on a cement island, stood an old man with a VFW cap on. I knew then, Obama was going to win. And I thought, God,
      he’s wrapped them up. I knew it was done. And, boy, was I sad. Vets, thank you, thank you for what you have done and stood for. Please help us turn this country around.

      • Carole Howell

        The Veterans voted for him because of his record for supporting them while he was a congressman. His record was better than McCain’s for supporting the Veterans and Military servicemen. Check it out.

  • Florida Polk

    T’was the night before elections
    And all through the town
    Tempers were flaring
    Emotions all up and down !
    With a cat in my lap
    Had cut off the TV
    Tired of political crap.
    When all of a sudden
    There arose such a noise
    I peered out of my window
    Saw Obama and his boys.
    They had come for my wallet
    They wanted my pay
    To give to the others
    Who had worked not a day !
    He snatched up my money
    And quick as a wink
    Jumped back on his bandwagon
    As I gagged from the stink
    He then rallied his henchmen
    Who were pulling his cart
    I could tell they were out
    To tear my country apart !
    On Fannie, on Freddie,
    On Biden and Ayers !
    On Acorn, On Pelosi’
    He screamed at the pairs !
    They took off for his cause
    And as he flew out of sight
    I heard him laugh at the nation
    That would not stand up and fight !
    So I leave you to think
    On this one final note-
    IF YOU DONT WANT SOCIALISM
    THEN GET OUT AND VOTE ! ! ! !

        Yes, like the $787 billion that was set aside to rebuild our infrastructure (roads, schools, bridges, etc.). It was to create 400,000 new jobs, did it? Bzzzzz. No, it didn’t even come close. Has there been any real move to complete this project? Bzzzzz. Not even close to getting out of the start gate. Only $18.5 billion of it has actually been spent and the dems/libs took some too. So that leaves around $200 – $250 billion dollars not spent and he wants $50 billion more? He must be getting daily supplies of hashish from his arab brothers! FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

  • James

    Let’s see, ‘ol Barry is going to spend ANOTHER $50 billion when two-thirds of the PREVIOUS stimulus money is still sitting on the side & waiting to be used…And the new money is just going to sind up in Big Labor Union hands, which is just another indication that the NON-unionized American workers are still being left out in the cold. Yeah, right…Obama said about the Unions “I owe these guys,” and he wasn’t kidding. Never mind the fact that the Oath of Office for the President (and ALL others government officers as well) is a lawfully-binding Oath to the Constitution, not to special interests that fund their campiagns.

    How about putting his new proposed business tax cuts in effect, with no conditions that would keep small businesses from promoting their own growth & hiring?

    The reason why businesses are reluctant to start hiring & growing now is because they have no idea what new regulations the government’s coming up with next…So far, the largest growth in American labor force has been in the Federal Government!

    The private sector businesses are paralyzed from uncertainty because Obamacare (& all of the new regulations that SHOULD come from Congress, but instead come from the Executive Branch) is going to increase their operating costs; It’s these excessive regulations that have caused many businesses to move overseas in the first place! The Congress needs to get invalidate these paralyzing regulations (as not being lawfully legislated) & refuse to put any more in place, at least until businesses can regain the confidence to start growing & hiring.

    • spike

    With as far as the USA has slipped, why anone would back a socialist democrat is more than can be understood. Hillary would have been more slinky and coniving, but would have still come up with the same disgusting outcomes. The National Socialist Democrat Union Party needs to bear the facts, Omoron was selected and had the blatant marxist beleifs and was a radical anti USA beleiver. The people that are posting on sites thinking Omoron is just great, shows how stupid and idoitic the population is on facts now and in the past history. As the years go on eeryone needs to hammer the dems at every chance for voting and tearing this country down in putting generations in debt. The best it will last on making a imprint on the phyc of people may have last 2 years. Unless it gets worse than we can even think or dream, the dems own this mess at least for 4 years.

    the democrats knew when they picked barry they would have to get a vp
    the public would not want as president, that was to protect barry, so they gave us biden. so if the republicans win the congress we can buy out biden, he’s cheap!!, then the republicans can step into the presidential seat at the same time.

  • http://gmail i41

    The only reason some socialist democrats complain about maybe spending, but in all honesty if it wasn’t an election, those fat hogs would be bellied up to the trough. There isn’t a socialist democrat that doesn’t like a tax, or a spending bill. If they claim they are financially attuned to sound judgement. Democrats are socialist and now are really strongly supporting marxist and total government control over everything. If you disagree prove where I wrong!

  • oz beck

    I am totally amazed with the total stupidity and ignorance of many in this country. I have read on countless posts about how wonderful the scum bag illegal alien occupying the Whitehouse. He has stated on some occasions that he is not an American, that he was born in Kenya, and that he is a Muslim. Yet almost half the voting public refuse to believe that he is qualified to hold the office of president. I am not the sharpest knife in the drawer but I saw through him in the campaign. Sadly we had little to chose from in the final days, between Obama, Hillary, and I am sorry to say (because of his at least reported military service) McCain all were of the warped sense and anti American positions. I do/did not consider McCain the war hero he was projected to be, He spent more time as a POW than on active duty, and has been in the senate ever since. I do not know or have not heard he ever had a real job. I am sorry he or any other veteran was ever a POW, though that in my opinion does not make one a hero. And I am grateful for all who have survived being a POW. In my opinion the smartest and most respectful thing he has done is he married right. His wife would have been a much better president that he would, and I can not say that about Michelle Obama, they are only 2 peas of the same pod. Someone I think back on this post stated he ought to be fired and sent back to his home country of Kenya. In my opinion that would be wrong to do. I rather think he ought to be tried and convicted of treason to our country, and the other charges I understand a grand jury has found him guilty of (some 15 charges I understand) and since he and Michelle enjoy being supported by the federal government, a federal prison would be the best place for them both for the rest of their lives. As well as all the others who know of his fraud (in particular Pelosi and Reid) need to be brought up on treason, and aiding and abetting Obama’s fraud.

    You are not serious!!!! This crap started getting totally out of hand 8 years before Obama bought his way into the play. The Senate and Congress we have on Capitol Hill today are the ones to blame. They are screwing the USA royally. All the person in the W.H. is good for is a target for us to throw shoes at.

    • Jim H.

      Tommy Boy, It’s been even longer than 8 years, it’s been decades. Obama has just brought it to a dimension unlike it’s EVER been. You are correct about Congress, they send the bill to the White House to be signed, and the crew we have in there now is one for the record books. That is why the mid-term elections are so important now, to try and get a handle on the House& Senate.

    *what’s really scary; barry is still carrying around a 42% approval rating. who are these people?: governmnet workers, state workers, civil employees, welfare recepients, union workers, 95% blacks, 90% mexican, illegal voters and communist democrats. now that’s a force to contend with, are you so sure there’s going to be a landslide election in november, you have to remember seiu and the remnants of acorn are out there at this very moment collecting dead and illegal voters. everyone should be concerned about this.

  • Greg

    What is the government doiong with all of the money that commercial trucking companies na d driver/owners pay?

    The amount of money utilzed correctly coould easily pay for all of the highways. They should have their own cross country highways. The government continues to waste tax dollars. Please STOP them.

    I was told in university by a Chief of Police (professor) any time they wanted more officers or more money from the taxpayers they threatened the reduction of public safety officers, fire fighters or the reduction of educators. He said the public then jumps to give money.

    Stop these type of politicians also. Tax payers should keep as much of their income as possible. The government further looks for donations to all types of activities and collection only to give the city, county, state or federal government a impressive name. Thsi is a political ploy that has used the publics as suckers for years.
    STOP THIS INSANITY! We pay enough money. If they continue to spend more than they are allotted VOTE THEM OUT.
