empty walletThere is more than one way to skin cats and bankrupt private insurance companies.

That President Obama lied when he guaranteed Americans they could keep insurance policies they liked is a metaphysical certitude.

What is supernatural is just how many ways he lied.

bush-obama-2This month and next mark the fifth anniversaries of the Housing Bust-caused financial crisis that led to TARP and other Fat Cat-bailouts and the election of the purveyor of Obamanomics.

Next month also marks the seventh anniversary of the Election of 2006 that returned Democrats to power in the House for four years and in the Senate for six years and counting that have, along with President Barack Obama, delivered to us:  Obamacare, a non-Stimulus, Dodd-Frank, and a War on Coal and other affordable energy.

The beginning of the end of  pathological Democratic Party separateness

For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. – Luke 12:34 (ESV)

Before Barack Hussein Obama, there was Lyndon Baines Johnson and 45 years of white guilt/race card-playing victimization monogamy.  In the third year after white folks purged the guilt and gave the first Hawaiian-born (and defended by $5 Million lawyers), mixed-race, 20-year Rev. Hate-America Wright pew-parked, President the nukes, major cuckolding has commenced:

No wonder he’s become such good pals with Al Sharpton.

President Obama’s approval ratings among black voters plummeted last month to their lowest levels ever, while his support among Hispanics took a tumble in the same period, according to a surprising new poll released yesterday.

Blacks continue to back him by a wide margin, with 85 percent of respondents saying they approved of him in the latest Gallup poll.

But that number dropped a hefty 5 percentage points from last month, marking the lowest rating among that core constituency that he’s had since taking office.

I’m sure it had been over a year since I had heard anyone blame Bush for the economy, and even longer since I had heard anyone defend President Barack Obama on anything at my local pub.

Yet, I heard both uttered by a heretofore mostly silent-on-politics friend there yesterday, soon after I had sought refuge from false moral equivalence allegations between German and other United Nations Security Council abstentions on Libya and the past behavior of a certain nation I call home, made in my Stone Mountain of Georgia home.

Admittedly, the then-sparse number of early afternoon occupants of nearby bar stools and I were in the middle of a group denunciation of all things Obama when the former erupted, but I was still a bit shocked given the source, the occasion of March Madness on the big screen TV and my known reputation as a rabid right-wing conservative. It was too much liberalism for me to take this particular weekend, so I went home immediately after summarily denouncing the untimely pronouncements.

In transit, I realized that what was so striking about the Blame Bush and Praise Obama statements is how rare it is to hear them even in an Atlanta Metro Area venue (DeKalb County is represented in Congress by Democrat Hank Johnson after Radical Cynthia McKinney represented the county for many terms previous) that is regularly populated by a goodly number of liberals, Democrats and mushy moderates. In fact, I can’t ever remember hearing anyone claim that “things have turned around” on the economy since the jobs recession began even before the bursting of the housing bubble and resulting financial crisis in 2008.
