Dr. Sanity starts with Obama’s press conference:
I thought it was interesting last night in the Press Conference that President/Messiah Obama had absolute certainty that his $$ Trillion ‘stimulus’ was the only thing that could save us from utter and irreversible economic catastrophe. His certainty about this leads me to conclude that he has absolutely no idea what he is talking about.
After discussing the failure of previous stimulus packages, most famously, FDR’s new deal, and the inherent impossibility of understanding a system as complex as the US economy, she justifies her conclusion:
Barack Obama not only has been hailed as a Messiah by the clueless left, he actually seems to think of himself as The One; and the fatal conceit that he knows how to ‘properly’ manipulate the complex system known as the US Economy is nothing but a grandiose narcissistic fantasy that is doomed from the start.
I repeat, he doesn’t have a clue to what he is doing, or what unintended economic consequences he and the Democratic Congress are about to unleash. But, since we are all in this together, we are all about to find out.
I notice Obama keeps saying that he inherited the current $$ Trillion debt from the evil BusHitler; but at least it took Bush 8 years to get us that far into debt–Obama’s spending spree will triple that inherited debt in a mere 3 month timeframe! One wonders what the Miracle Worker will do for an encore? I.e., when his stimulus doesn’t stimulate in the same way FDR’s stimulus didn’t back in the 30’s and actually prolonged the Great Depression.
Her conclusion is frightening, and it is one that my wife and I share:
I think the failure of the stimulus will be the impetus and the justification to fully nationalize a number of key industries. Make no mistake: it will be business and the Market that will be blamed for the failure of Obama’s recovery plan; and certainly not the government or any of the plan’s architects. Knowing the underlying neo-Marxist and fundamentally fascist ideology that drives the President and many of his more extreme supporters (who regularly stoke the fires of class envy and identity politics) you can bet that they really don’t much care what happens either way. Because, once the stimulus is passed, no matter what happens, we will be on an almost irreversible course toward socialism and economic suicide.
Then again, maybe Obama does know what he’s on about. Most everything he’s said or done marks him as a Marxist. The destruction of capitalism is a Marxist’s highest calling. Obama is well on his way to answering that call. God help America because its leaders certainly won’t.
