Obama: watch what he does and not what he says
While Barry Oh! and his tribe of venture socialists blame Mitt Romney and Bain Capital for the ills of mankind (and a war on womankind), Marc Theissen at IBD rips the lips off the President for being a world-class practitioner of crony capitalism.
The upside: the President has found something he’s good at. The downside: what he’s good at hurts Americans.
No wonder the President trots out Warren Buffett when it suits his agenda:
Obama has declared that all of the [taxpayer financed] projects received funding “based solely on their merits.” But as Hoover Institution scholar Peter Schweizer reported in his book “Throw Them All Out,” 71% of the Obama Energy Department’s grants and loans went to “individuals who were bundlers, members of Obama’s National Finance Committee, or large donors to the Democratic Party.”
Collectively, these Obama cronies raised $457,834 for his campaign, and they were in turn approved for grants or loans of nearly $11.35 billion. Obama said this week that it’s not the president’s job “to make a lot of money for investors.” Well, he sure seems to have made a lot of (taxpayer) money for investors in his political machine.
The cronyism and corruption are catching up with the administration. According to Politico, “The Energy Department’s inspector general has launched more than 100 criminal investigations” related to the department’s green-energy programs.
Pay as I say and not as I pay and Do as I say and not as I do again come to mind. Sadly.
Given the crushing failures (social, economic, and foreign policy) created by this Administration which normal Americans will have to somehow pay down, Barry’s performance should warrant a crushing defeat in November.
