Ladies and gentlemen, this is a perfect example of what I have written about many times on this blog, that the media twists the news it doesn't like to suit its own liberal agenda.
"If you want Obama to fail," the CNN commentator said, "then you are anti-American."
If, taken in full context, Rush did not say he wants Obama to fail. Rush said he loves his country and he wants the best for it. But if Obama is going to set an agenda that is counter to what would make the country a success, then he cannot hope Obama succeeds.
I agree with Rush and I wrote a similar article on this topic a few days ago.
Rush claims that Obama has no intention of doing what is best for the country. His soul agenda is to pretend to want to help America, but he ultimately wants to create more poor people. The more poor, needy people you have, the more people who will vote for democrats, because democrats thrive on creating government programs under the guise that they will help the poor -- but these programs create more poor.
A perfect example of this is welfare and the war on poverty set forth by president Johnson. What turned out was the more people in poverty, the more people who became dependent on government and thus democrats. The less people in poverty, the more republicans because republicans are the party of success and prosperity.
The New Deal was another perfect example. While every depression before the Great Depression lasted fewer than three years, FDRs lasted for over a decade because of too much government spending -- taking too much out of the pockets of the people who are capable of stimulating the economy (the upper middle class and rich who create 80% of the jobs).
I suppose, Rush himself put it best:
“I believe his stimulus is aimed at re-establishing ‘eternal’ power for the Democrat Party rather than stimulating the economy because anyone with a brain knows this is NOT how you stimulate the economy. Obama’s plan would buy votes for the Democrat Party, in the same way FDR’s New Deal established majority power for 50 years of Democrat rule, and it would also simultaneously seriously damage any hope of future tax cuts.”
You can go back to what I previously wrote about FDR and the economy. I wrote about Hoover and the economy. I wrote a series on this a while back (1950s to 1980s, the 1920s). It is historically proven that never in the history of government has any government pulled a country out of a recession -- only the free market can do that.
(Harding Kennedy, Reagan, and Bush W. all proved this by limiting government and decreasing taxes to pull us out of a recession, while Hoover, FDR, Clinton and Carter did the exact opposite and drove us into a recession or deeper into one with big government programs as obama proposes).
There are many examples how the free market has pulled us out of a recession. Obama believes, as he has said, that only the government can do this. He is naive and wrong. The government succeed only in creating more wasteful government programs and more needy people, and that is what Rush has said the Obama's stimulus package will create. That is a direction he does not want to see America go in. That is against every ideal he (and myself) stand for. And he cannot hope for it to succeed.
Unless, I must add, his stimulus package has across the board tax cuts, an extension of the Bush tax cuts, capital gains tax cuts all of which would definitely (as historically proven) encourage spending, create jobs, and stimulate the economy. This has succeeded every time it has been tried. So why the heck would any government official want to do anything else other than for party gains?
And then you have Obama with the Gall to tell republicans that if they want to listen to Rush they can't deal with him. What the hell does Obama know about the economy anyway? Apparently, he hasn't read his history books as Rush has.
I certainly hope republicans stick it to Obama by refusing to buy int his stimulus plan that calls for welfare checks under the nam of taxes, contraceptives for poor people and more government.
Only the government would take something that has failed every time it's ever been tried and try it again. Any capitalistic business president who did this would be thrown out of office in a month.
I'm sorry, but I do not want the America that Obama is trying to make. I do not want poor people to be dependent on government. I do not want socialized medicine that will ultimately lead to more government and less choice for the people. I do not want an economic stimulus package that will create so much government there will be no hope for tax cuts in the future.
And therefore, if Obama chooses to take this route, I hope he fails. And, when he does fail, republicans will gain seats in the house, Senate and hopefully win back the presidency by 2012.
There, that is my rant for the month. Yet I'm sure the media will continue to twist Rush's words and hail Obamas because the agenda at CNN and MSNBC is no different than Obama's. I keep thinking that CNN is fair, but then I see something like this and it ticks me off.
