Obama On America's Drought: Blame Congress

Tyler Durden's picture


Last week Obama insinuated that in the aftermath of the "amazing" post-bankruptcy GM recovery, his next plan is to bailout, well, everyone: "I believe in American workers, I believe in this American industry, and now the American auto industry has come roaring back... Now I want to do the same thing with manufacturing jobs, not just in the auto industry, but in every industry." Also, as it appears, the Bailout'er-In-Chief has taken the saying "make it rain" a little too close to heart, and is now taking the worst drought in decades as a personal central planning challenge. Just because he can. There is one thing preventing him for bailing out US farmers: that thing apparently is evil congress. From his weekly address: "This is an all hands on deck response...  But my administration can't do it alone. Congress needs to do its part too. They need to pass a farm bill that not only helps farmers and ranchers respond to these kinds of disasters, but also makes necessary reforms and gives them certainly year round.... So call your members of congress, write them an email and tell them that now is the time to come together and get this done. Too many Americans are suffering right now to let politics get in the way." All righty then GOP - you heard the president: stop blocking the man who would end the drought if not for your disturbing lack of faith, and vote promptly for "Let's All Make It Rain: It's Only Fair" bill. How else can the systematic bailout of everyone and everything proceed as planned?

It would be well enough to say that Obama is worthless and weak, which he is.  But, alas, there is more.  BO has not only weakened the the rule of law, looked the other way as to the rule of law (Banksters), and allowed their profane cacophony to continue, but he then turns tail and says that "congress" is to blame, whenever he's in a bind (which is all the time).

All I got to say is that Romney/Ryan need to answer (where BO has totally not) the question about our financial institutions (charters, oversight, regulation).  They better be on the muscle there to, or they will lose this Libertarian/Conservative, too.  Shake those fuckers up, dammit.  Show them the frickin LAW matters and has CONSEQUENCES!!

Color me the clown and paint me the fool, but how can this happen or be sustained?  It cannot, in my view.  Romney/Ryan isn't what I'd call an ideal ticket and/or admin, but dang, its GOT to be a whole lot better than the gang going right now.  FTR, I like Ryan.

BTW, what about that "healing the oceans" thingy?  What ever happened there?  Just sayin.  Dude talkin is just that.  BO has got to go.  Farmers need to farm and reap profitable or unprofitable harvests, regardless of the frikin central planning objectives.


As for you -30 year olds:  Get with reality.  Work and steadfastness, wisdom and sense will tell you that you cannot expect a future without gaining it through your own sweat.  Yes, you are fortunate to have been born here (?), but if you aren't in it to win it, you are out of it to lose it.  Be what you can be and do not let centralized planning tell you what that is.  Be you.  Be free.  And be real.

Farmers are already subsidized and bailed out.  They get paid market value even if their crops don't produce anything.

I keep waiting for that $100,000 bailout check from these harpies and warlocks in Washington; if you can do it for the banks why not the middle class?  Eh bullshitter in chief?  Not a promise, not a bill, but CA$H-CA$H-CA$H like you gave to the banks.

Tell me when Obummer and his cronies don't take a dime from banks, corporations, and the other oligarchs and get back to me.

Same for Romney/Ryan or team "Ruh Roh Raggy!" 2012.

The biggest help he could give farmers is arresting his bosom buddy Corzine. You'll never hear the MSM tell you that one though. Any journalist who works for the MSM should be ashamed to look at themselves in the mirror.
