You can say what you want about Obama. But you can’t say he isn’t doing exactly what he told us he’d do. His campaign was all about “Hope and Change,” right? Well, he’s changed things alright.
One of the first things he did was to make good on his campaign promise to close that dreadful place called GITMO. Remember that? Remember how the left-wing loons went into a frenzy over that one?
Problem is though, like most liberal ideas, he did it because it sounded good. He did it because it made his base feel good. He did it because it was the politically popular thing to do. And that was about it. There was no plan in place on what to do with the terrorists who now call this place home. All he knows is that he needs $85 million dollars. He’ll figure the rest out later. Whatever.
Then came the first ever by an American President, “Blame America” tour where he trotted off around the globe sucking up to and bowing down to some of the world’s most despicable dictators. Remember that one? Kind of makes you proud, doesn’t it.
Then he took over some of the biggest banks, financial institutions, and insurance companies in the country, telling them what they’d do and how they’d do it. He followed that up by taking over the U.S. auto industry. And just to make sure there was no doubt in anyone’s mind about who was in charge, he fired the CEO of General Motors, again, the first ever by an American President.
Still not satisfied, Obama set his sights on Chrysler. He pushed them into a deal with Italian car company, Fiat. Remember the Yugo that Fiat tried to dump on us back in the 80’s?
Now he’s decided that in order to save the world from global-warming we need to make cars that get at least 35 miles per gallon. Sounds good, right? I suppose there are a few different ways for car companies to meet that goal. They can keep the same size cars we’re used to and put in a much smaller engine in it making it woefully underpowered and dangerous or they can develop new engines that use less fuel and can produce the same amount of power we’re used to. But once they get all that accomplished, the price will be so high on a new vehicle that no one will be able to afford to buy one anyway.
More than likely, since Fiat will be taking over Chrysler, they’ll try to re-introduce another crappy little, underpowered car like the Yugo.
But hey, it’ll be good for the economy, right. I mean, Obama has promised to create more jobs and more than anything that’s what we need. Just think how busy the cemeteries, funeral homes, and the companies that build things like caskets and vaults will be. It’ll be good for trucking companies who deliver them too. There will be a big spike in the floral industry as well as the hotel/motel business as people travel from place to place as they’re attending funerals of family members and friends who’ve been killed in these crappy little death traps they’ll soon unleash on us. Greeting Card companies will have to put on extra employees just meet the demand for sympathy cards that will surely follow.
Yeah, it’s a good thing alright. And it was all brought to you by a man named Obama and his left-wing, environmental, wack-job, friends.
Oh yeah, he talked constantly about “Hope.” My hope is that in 2012 there will be enough people who have had enough of his brand of “Change” and kick him to the curb. YES WE CAN!
