As many of you know, I'm not a big fan of the Bamster. In fact, I think his policies suck and have stated as much publicly
and will continue to do so
. I haven't been as aggressive about this on my blog as I have wanted to be--keeping up with the Left takes too much energy sometimes.
Last month, Rush Limbaugh was asked to contribute
400 words on his "hope for the Obama presidency" to which Rush responded, I don't need 400 words, I need 4: I hope he fails.
Ever since that event, I've been calling for I HOPE HE FAILS buttons, much like suspoo's
Now, for those of you who didn't hear about the town hall meeting yesterday in Florida, I'll hit the highlights for you.
First, there was Henrietta Hughs who had this plea to Lord Barack Obama:
I have an urgent need, unemployment and homelessness, a very small vehicle for my family and I to live in. The housing authority has two years’ waiting lists, and we need something more than the vehicle and the parks to go to. We need our own kitchen and our own bathroom. Please help.
To which Obama responded:
Well...I...listen, I...uh, what's your name? Ok Miss Hughes, well, we're gonna do everything we can to help you, but there are a lot of people like you. And wer're gonna, we're gonna do everything we can...but, I--I'll, uh. have my staff talk to you after the uh Town Hall.
So Obama promised her a hand out, not a hand up. Henrietta Hughes is a winner of life's lottery because she was chosen to ask The Messiah for what she wanted...and he came though...despite the fact that Lord Barack Obama, The Most Merciful was there to flog Nancy Pelosi's bill.
Then we had a guy ask for full salary on his unemployment check so he'd never have to work again. Lord Obama said he was going to raise unemployment benefits by $100 "wich doesn't sound like a lot, but that means an extra bill that you can pay." This unnamed diciple went away sorrowful that Obama wasn't going to pay him to sit on his ass henceforth at full salary.
Then the pièce de résistance
: Julio Osegueda rambles on and on about how he's worked at McDonald's for four and a half years and how he wants better benefits.
The fact that you are working as hard as you're working at a job that doesn't always pay as well as...some other jobs, I think that's a source of pride for you...we're going to offset your payroll tax.
BUT JULIO GOT NOT MONEY!
He has, however, been given a one-time shot at being a color announcer
for the Fort Myers Miracle some 59 days from now when everyone has forgotten all about him.
[For an in-depth analysis of the Q&A at the Fort Myers Town Hall Meeting, check out these links. Also, you can keep up with whatever undisclosed handout Henrietta Hughes' receives compliments of your tax dollars here.
But Obama's no answers and burning through taxpayer money isn't the biggest problem, it's what he and Congress are trying to sneak into the
porkulus bill: National Health Care
But I think that you do. I don't for a moment think that any of my readers seriously think that Lord Barack Obama is going to give them a new house or a new car or a job. I don't think you're going to call the White House and ask for a handout.
And I think that you didn't need this little post to tell you what you already knew. But I do think that you want to vent your frustration and amazement at how lawmakers on the Hill are ignoring your phone calls and emails and letters. I think you want change that you can believe in.
I'm not one to sit around hoping that Lord Barack Obama The Most Merciful gives me a better job or a larger check or some other kind of government handout where I'm going to have to keep voting my meal ticket back into office. I get up off my ass and go to work every day to earn my keep.
And I take initiative and this issue is no exception. I said I wanted my buttons, so I commissioned them. Here's the prototype:
Now, if you want to have the government decide what kind of healthcare you can and can't receive, please ignore this post. If you are marching to Washington to get a better job from the President, this isn't for you. But if you're already sick and tired of being hoodwinked and treated like you're too stupid to take care of yourself, then please download this button and put it on your blog. Email it to everyone you know so that it will make a difference. Let those of us who pay the bills in this country have our voice heard.
If you're against the
stimulus porkulus bill, spread the word.
I HOPE HE FAILS.
Note: I'm currently in negotiations to having this be not just some .png graphic, but turned into actual buttons that you can buy from Cafe Press. Stay tuned.
