"Clown Prince ZERO-bama, the Narcissist" proved but one thing during his blather opportunity:
He's in love with his own voice!!
'His Incompetence' blathered on for one-hour, six-minutes!! That's sixty-six minutes you'll never get back; that's 3,960 seconds you'll never get back!!
Here's where I'd normally do a "What I didn't tell you:" segment; here's where we depart from normality. I can't stomach reading this crap AGAIN!! While--from a 'fact-checking' perspective--there's not too many lies, crucial facts have been left out, like:
- "....there are no Americans fighting in Iraq...." is not the same as no Americans in Iraq--which is what most Americans see, rather than what they read; and
- "....An economy built to last,where hard work pays off, and responsibility...." Plainly the "Clown Prince" did NOT mean those of us who actually invest in ideas, invest in entrepreneurs, invest in companies, put their capital at risk, use their good fortune to create jobs. His class, gender and race warfare--"The Buffett Rule--is a clear indicator; and
- "....In the last 22 months, businesses have created more than 3 million jobs...."
- The "Clown Prince" fails to mention that over one-million jobs were lost in just one of those years, alone; and
- "....we've agreed to cut the deficit by more than $2 Trillion...."
- Considering the nearly $5 Trillion "Clown Prince ZERO-bama, the Narcissist" added, this is seemingly a drop-in-the-bucket. The cuts said "Clown" is referring to, won't occur until late in the 'next-ten-years,' and
- "....We got the industry to retool and restructure....General Motors is back on top....Ford is investing billions in U.S. plants and factories...."
- A significant amount of the $787 Billion PORKulus bill went to the auto unions as did 37% of GM's new stock issue; the 'pre-bailout' bondholders were screwed by payoffs of CENTS on the DOLLAR; the federal government took over the auto unions health, retirement and benefits plans unfunded liabilities--which were underwater. Ford--even after being 'ordered' to take bailout funds--refused and did it all on their own--as GM could have chosen to do--without federal PORK. Bailouts do little more than reinforce ineffectual management and poor business plans, and
- "....for the first time in 15 years, Master Lock's unionized plant in Milwaukee is running at full capacity...."
- Why?!? What's changed?!? Certainly not any union concessions. Most probably an increase in crime caused by the Regime's failed economic practices; meddling, and
- "....Soon, there will be new cars on the streets of Seoul imported from Detriot...."
- That seems highly doubtful, the vast majority of Seoul's streets are too narrow for American cars, except possibly the little sh*t-boxes and electrics that won't sell here at home, and
- "....Over a thousand Americans are working today because we stopped a surge in Chinese tires...."
- That statement is laughable!! The labor number is essentially bogus-the gain of 1,100 jobs took almost two years; the tire imports were just switched from China to Thailand, Mexico, Indonesia and others, and
- "....We know a good teacher can increase the lifetime income of a classroom by over $25,000...."
- That's not even worthy of a "Clownish" brag! If the average class size is 25, the LIFETIME increase is but $10,000; given there are 2,080 work-hours in a year; given the student can expect to work for 50 years, the gain amounts to a NINE and ONE-HALF CENT hourly increase, BUT: don't forget the ravaging, reducing affects of--the currently unreported--inflation rate, and
- "....At a time when most Americans owe more in tuition debt than credit card debt...."
- As noted on national 'debt clock' (http://www.usdebtclock.org/index.html), every American--EVERY AMERICAN, from infant to the OLDEST American--owes the (Clown) Princely sum of $48,810 at the instant of birth!! Now couple that with $100,000-$150,000 in student loans to see just how disingenuous the "Clown Prince" truly is!!
