Today (Friday, July 22) Obama made an impassioned speech in which he pointedly blamed the Republicans for not negotiating honestly on the debt ceiling controversy, and bluntly accused John Boehner of bad faith dealing in the matter, and then like the monarch he thinks he is, Obama demanded that the Republicans report to him tomorrow (Saturday) at 11A.M. and present their proposal for solving the debt ceiling issue.
The lie that our immoral president is presenting is that the Republicans have presented no real plan and have been changing their position and making agreement impossible for Obama, when in fact our lying president if so far out in left field that his government has not presented a constitutionally required budget for 2 years, and has presented not one specific proposal himself in the critical matter of the debt ceiling. And one can appreciate Obama's position in the debates: how can the architect of the current doomsday scenario that is our nation's present state of financial crisis, and who a few weeks ago proposed spending trillions more new dollars on a variety of leftist rat holes, present a spending-cutting proposal that contradicts all he's done to this point and would undermine his political allies who have come to depend on government largess and regulations to make them wealthy and powerful? I fear that when Obama uses the term "shovel ready" he refers to the old Vladimir Lenin term referring to useful capitalist idiots selling the rope with which they are to be hung, but in this case the shovels will be used to bury the United States.
The current situation in which we see Obama, who directly caused the spending/debt crisis we are living, going public and blaming his political opponents of culpability for our ills, reminds us of Hitler's Reichstag fire and the resulting show trial of those accused of setting the fire, when it was the Nazis themselves who committed the act. I just pray for the sake of this nation, that the comparison with 1930s Germany ends there.
