Facebook Group "I hate it when I wake up and Sarah Palin is still alive" Breaks 2,000 Members

Remember, liberals are the ones with common sense.  Remember, it is all conservatives' fault that there is anger in the United States.  Remember, Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck caused a madman like Loughner to go on a rampage.

I'm tired of liberal hypocrisy and here's just another example of their hate-mongering.  For example, the new Facebook group "I hate it when I wake up and Sarah Palin is still alive" calls for the death of Sarah Palin.  And don't believe the BS that it is just one crazed liberal or two nuts lefties.  This group, as of this moment, has exactly 2,139 "likes:"
That's over 2,000 people that actually searched for and gave a  thumbs up to a group calling for the death of Sarah Palin.  And before Facebook takes this disgusting group down (and liberals say it was some sort of right-wing hoax) let me take some screenshots:
And the founder of the group constantly telling people to F themselves:
Remember, liberals are civil!

Biden Bombshell on Afghanistan War.

Vice-President Joe Biden is not the kind of leader you send to a war zone.

He advocated a horrid plan to split Iraq into three separate nation's when the war briefly turned against the United States in 2006, and he opposed the successful surge that established the Iraq of today: peaceful, prosperous, and united. Then again, perhaps he was only posturing for the '08 Democrat Primaries?


Vice-President Joe Biden opposed the ongoing surge in Afghanistan, and he had a blowout with Hamid Karzai, the President of Afghanistan, before the Obama Administration even had control of our government. In fact, Biden has been on the wrong side of wars in the Middle East for two decades now: he voted against authorizing the use of force against Saddam during Desert Storm.

So you would think Vice-President Biden's recent trip to Afghanistan was more of the same from old Joe, right? Amazingly, no. If Vice-President Biden was sincere in his comments to Karzai, our current 2014 deadline to leave Afghanistan was just essentially blown up, and Joe Biden actually pulled the trigger.

Biden actually said "we're not leaving if you don't want us to leave" to Karzai. This is significant news on the Afghanistan War, considering the Obama administration has consistently pushed for a withdrawal deadline. Perhaps on-the-job training for the 44th President has taught him a thing or two about governing.

And how to alienate your Vice-President on foreign policy matters. Old Joe probably enjoyed his talk with President Karzai, and his pledge that "we're not leaving if you don't want us to leave", but I doubt it will change his thrice-proven wrong mind. Somewhere in Wyoming, a former Vice-President is smiling today.

What say you?

Huckabee leads in Iowa.

Via Public Policy Polling.

Mike Huckabee, the former Governor of Arkansas, has one thing going for him if he does decide to run for the GOP Nomination again next year: Iowa will back him just as strongly as they did in 2008. This comes one week after a poll out of New Hampshire showed Mitt Romney leading the GOP field with relative ease.

Huckabee leads the way with 30%*, while Romney (18%), Palin (15%), and Gingrich (13%) round out the front runners. Ron Paul leads the second-tier candidates with 6%; while Pawlenty (4%), Thune (3%) and Daniels (1%) are struggling to find name recognition and active support in the first Caucus.

With Iowa trending to Huckabee, and New Hampshire to Romney - the voters of South Carolina, not just Republicans since SC primary elections are open to all registered voters, could very well choose the next Republican Nominee for President, and perhaps the next President of the United States in late January, 2012.

Any thoughts?

* - Huckabee won Iowa with 34% in 2008; Romney placed second with 25%.

42% of Democrats think Shootings 'Politically Motivated'

Even as more evidence mounts that Arizona shooter Jared Loughner was likely influenced most not by his politics (left-wing as they are) but his psycosis, the narrative is not fitting with all Americans. Loughner's insanity appears to be more and more clear as the days go on-- weird statements, drug habits, and outbursts in class.

He was a 9/11 Truther and opposed the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and was a political independent. Yet for some reasons all of these antithetical items seem to just make people want to blame Sarah Palin all the more. Furthermore, his hatred of Congresswoman Giffords started before the Tea Party or Palin's national career.

Still, in a CBS poll, it appears that some still want to blame politics, and it would appear that the prime target remains the Tea Party. Even MSNBC said that there was no link to the movement... "yet" in their broadcast. However, many Democrats still see Loughner as a product of the Tea Party.

Democrats were more evenly divide - 49 percent said they saw no link between the shooting and the rhetoric, while 42 percent said they did see a tie. Among independents polled, 56 percent said they saw no connection and 33 percent said they did see one.
Just another disgusting politiziation of the horrific shootings on Saturday. Still without a shred of evidence. I don't expect to hear an apology from Paul Krugman anytime soon.

Americans turn against Afghanistan War.

Headline of the Month:

60% of Americans now say the War in Afghanistan has not been worth the fighting, according to a new poll sponsored by ABC News and the Washington Post. This represents the strongest U.S. opposition to the decade old war since it was launched a few weeks after the September eleventh terrorist attacks.

Do the American people really believe our mission in Afghanistan hasn't been worth the blood, or money? Because if they do believe such nonsense, then they are undeserving of our Military that has fought, and continues to fight for all of our protection, safety, and freedom from Jihadist foes, who given the chance, would kill all of us.

These poll results come at the worst possible time ever.

Our soldiers are pushing deeper and deeper into Southern Afghanistan, our mission is sowing the seeds of success, our M1A1 Abrams Tank is entering the war next year in the Helmand Province and our allies in Afghanistan are encouraged by NATO's 2014 deadline, which has eased the near constant worry that we leave without victory.

NOW: Conservatives "Equal" to Loughner, Blames Right for Violence

Jared Loughner is a disgusting person.  He murdered six people in cold blood, including a little girl and a federal judge.  He shot a member of Congress in the head, before continuing to wildly shoot into a crowd of innocent people.  He must be condemned and rejected.

The National Organization for Women (NOW for short) has a different approach.  Instead of condemning Loughner outright, they are using his senseless acts as political hay, equating conservatives to his hateful rampage and blaming the deaths of innocent people on figures like Sarah Palin.

The very same day that Loughner unleashed a barrage of bullets into a crowd, before it was even known who even committed this atrocity, NOW decided to blame the right for these crimes.  Quickly releasing a statement, NOW President Terry O'Neill released the statement below (emphasis mine):
NOW condemns the tragic shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) that stole six lives and seriously injured 12 today. We condemn, equally, the culture of hate and violence increasingly reflected in extreme right-wing opponents of those who support progressive solutions to our country's challenges.
Rep. Giffords, whose office was vandalized after she voted for the federal health care reform law last year, was also named on Sarah Palin's "Targeted" list. Giffords (who has been consistently endorsed by NOW's PAC) herself understood the not-so-well veiled threat, stating "the thing is that the way she [Palin] has it depicted, we're in the crosshairs of a gun sight over our district. When people do that, they've got to realize that there are consequences to that action."
The pious condemnations we are now hearing by right-wing leaders are of little comfort if not accompanied by concrete action. Conservatives cannot have it both ways, screaming sexist, racist and homophobic slurs at legislators as they vote for health care reform, putting legislators on a violence-inciting "Targets" list, and then simply saying how sorry they are when someone explodes into murder.
In November 2009, as Democratic women spoke on the House floor about how the Affordable Care Act would benefit women, Republican Congressmen shouted them down. Led by Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.), who repeatedly yelled "I object. I object. I object. I object. I object," as Rep. Lois Capps (D-Calif.) tried to talk, they carried on this attack for half an hour.
In March 2010, Tea Party supporters screamed a racial epithet at Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) as he walked toward Congress from a health care reform meeting. Rep. Andre Carson (D-Ind.) was walking with Lewis and confirmed the protesters were yelling "Kill the bill, kill the bill," when they used the racial epithet. One man spit on Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.) as he walked to the Capitol. Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) was taunted with anti-gay epithets as he left the same meeting in a House office building.
We call on Republican leaders to do more than disavow hatred, hostility and violence-laden speech as a political tool. We also call upon the Justice Department to investigate -- to the fullest extent of federal anti-terrorist legislation -- reports that this mass murder, which included the killing of a federal judge and the attempted assassination of a member of Congress, was part of a conspiracy.
NOW offers our sincere condolences to the families of those who were slain, and we hope that all those who were injured will soon recover. Our thoughts are with all those involved in this horrible tragedy.
There are two things that are utterly disgusting with the statement above.  The first is that much of it is simply untrue, exaggerated, or things that Democrats do as well.  The second, and most disgusting, is that NOW is using a tragedy to push forward its agenda.

Before the bodies of the murders lay cold in the ground, Terry O'Neill was salivating over blaming conservatives for this tragedy.  She is disgusting and her actions must be condemned.

Out of Chaos, Heroes Arose

On Saturday, a madman named Jared Loughner murdered six innocent people, shot a Congresswoman in the head, and injured a total of 20 people.  In the aftermath, much has been spewed across both aisles.  Angry pointing fingers blaming Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, or Barack Obama has gone on, mostly in the absence of facts.  There are even those who call for the death of Mrs. Palin, for what reason I am not sure.

But out of all of the chaos that Saturday morning, heroes arose who saved the lives of dozens of people.  These people seem to have been forgotten with all the vitriol that has been thrown about.  I'd just like to take a few moments and recognize the people who acted when they had to.  These people acted despite political beliefs.  They acted because they cared, not because they were liberals or conservatives.  These people are heroes.

Daniel Hernandez- 20-year-old Daniel Hernandez, an intern, is the man who most likely saved Representative Gabrielle Giffords's life.  Knowing the basics of medicine and treatment, Hernandez tilted Giffords's head back, preventing her from drowning on her own blood.  In the meantime, he applied pressure and clean cloths to Giffords's wound in able to prevent further damage.
Patricia Maisch- Patricia Maisch, a 61-year-old woman, ran up to Loughner as he attempted to reload his gun, which he had emptied into the crowd.  Putting her life in danger, she grabbed the magazine Loughner was trying to put in his gun, likely saving a dozen lives.

Roger Sulzgeber and Joseph Zimudie-  These heroes tackled Loughner as he attempted to continue his rampage.  Putting their lives on the line in order to save others, Sulzgeber and Zimudie's actions likely saved dozens of people.

These people are all heroes.  With the vitriol being thrown, we should stop and recognize those who saved instead of killed.  Unfortunately, this article doesn't have a catchy headline or a new "scoop," so it is unlikely to be read and taken into account.

Crazed Liberals: Palin Must be "Assassinated"

Continuing the craziness that has been on full display for two days now, insane liberals are now calling for the "assassination" of former VP candidate Sarah Palin.  As soon as the assassin Jared Lee Loughner shot Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, liberals have been desperate to link Loughner to Palin for no apparent reason.

Apparently liberals believe "evidence" and "common sense" be damned; not only do they not have evidence to link Loughner to Palin, but now crazed liberals are calling for the "assassination" on the former governor of Alaska.  Why?  I'm not sure, but liberals are angry and vengeful.

Once again this isn't an isolated incident, but many liberals are going nuts just to scream for the death of Sarah Palin.  Like this one on SodaHead:
Or this one from Reddit:

Or this disgusting post on Skeptical Eye, in which the author tells people to kill Palin:
And here are others Pundit Press discovered yesterday:
In fact, insane liberals created a "kill Sarah Palin" webpage on Facebook.  Luckily, it was pulled down.  Do these insane liberals understand the consequences of their actions and words?  Apparently not, or they wouldn't do it.

Jared Loughner Mugshot

Here is the mugshot of the attempted assassin, Jared Lee Loughner.  Warning, incredibly creepy:

Please bookmark!

Confirmed: Loughner a 9/11 Truther

As more information is coming out about the Arizona shooter Jared Loughner, it becomes more and more clear that he is mentally disturbed. His friends describe him as a "liberal" and was pushing for George W. Bush to lose the 2004 presidential election. He was a "pothead" and hated the Christian faith. He also liked bands that had anti-American messages.

As more investigation focuses on Loughner and his family, it appears that he is more insane than previously believed. For one, he is a 9/11 Truther, believing that the US government, led by George W. Bush and Dick Cheney, carried out the September 11th atrocities:

He believed the U.S. government was behind 9/11, and worried that governments were maneuvering to create a unified monetary system ("a New World Order currency" one friend said) so that elites and bureaucrats could control the rest of the world.
Loughner is also known for being increasingly aggressive towards others-- searching for "chaos."

An ardent atheist, he began to characterize people as sheep whose free will was being sapped by the government and the monotony of modern life.
"He didn't want people to wake up and do the same thing every day. He wanted more chaos, he wanted less regularity," one friend said.
Even those who just knew Jared Loughner through class and not further social contact pegged him as a nut:

"My very first impression was that he was unstable, mentally and emotionally. He frightened me," she said. "His behavior was just so inexplicable. He had outbursts that were completely nonsensical. His behavior was angry and aggressive and something about him just frightened me."
Loughner appears to be a nihilistic young person influenced by constant beratement about how American society and the Bush Administration was illegal and evil. He took these flights of fancy to the extreme-- hating the system and his Congresswoman. He seemed to take the counter-culture to its insane conclusion, choosing violence instead of reasonable discourse.

Delay Sentenced to 3 Years

Former House Majority Leader Tom Delay was sentenced to three years in prison today for money laundering.

From Fox:

AUSTIN, Texas -- A judge has ordered U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay to serve three years in prison for his role in a scheme to illegally funnel corporate money to Texas candidates in 2002.
The sentence comes after a jury in November convicted DeLay on charges of money laundering and conspiracy to commit money laundering. DeLay was once one of the most powerful men in U.S. politics, ascending to the No. 2 job in the House of Representatives.
The former Houston-area congressman had faced up to life in prison. His attorneys asked for probation.
Senior Judge Pat Priest issued his ruling after a brief sentencing hearing on Monday in which former U.S. House Speaker Dennis Hastert testified on DeLay's behalf.
Priest declined to hear testimony from the state's only witness.

Huckabee Leads in IA Polling

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee is reportedly leading in early polling of the GOP field in Iowa. The polling is according to a Republican pollster, Neighborhood Research. Huckabee won the 2008 caucuses with 34% of the vote as compared to 25% for Mitt Romney.

Huckabee: 24%
Romney: 19%

Palin: 11%
Gingrich: 9%

So how does this change the 2012 landscape? Huckabee was the favorite in Iowa, at least if you take 2008 in perspective. Of course, Palin's numbers appear weaker than would be expected.

Insane Liberals: "CAN SOMEONE PLZ KILL SARAH PALIN" for Arizona Shooting

With five bodies barely cold in Arizona after a madman went on a killing rampage yesterday, hateful liberals are screaming for the death of Sarah Palin.  Palin, the Republican Vice Presidential candidate in 2008, has been in the limelight since her rise to nation-wide fame.  Angry liberals are now blaming her for assassin Jared Loughner's rampage yesterday, and some are even calling for her death.

And no, there was not just one insane person on one insane website, but many cases of wackos calling for the death of Sarah Palin.  Like this one from a commenter on TMZ:
Or this one from liberalforum.org:
Or this one from the incredibly disturbing website Wetworx in an article entitled (with language cleaned up) "HOLY S**T CAN SOMEONE PLZ KILL SARAH PALIN:"

Or this one from Yahoo! Answers:
And then there are morons that think it is hilarious to joke about Palin being killed:

The list goes on and the threats go on.  These are simply disgusting and need to stop.

Update: And a reader brought this disgusting Facebook group to my attention: Sarah Palin should die, which has just been taken down.

Assassin Jared Loughner Charged with 5 Counts of Murder

Friend of Loughner Confirms: He is a Liberal

I'm sure that no one is surprised by this, but the attempted assassin of Rep. Giffords of Arizona is a liberal.  Not only is there circumstantial evidence that Jared Loughner a leftist, but friends of his are now saying that he is nothing short of a "liberal" who was "obsessed with the 2012 prophecy."

Caitie Parker, a woman who went to high school and knew Loughner during college, confirmed that his politics were left wing:
She further wrote that liberal and that he wanted to change the way "the world was run:"
She then posted images of Loughner and her from her high school year book, confirming that they went to the same school at the same time:
And Loughner:
Here is a more recent photo confirmed to be Loughner:
On top of this new, irrefutable evidence, there was also a large amount of circumstantial evidence that pointed to Loughner's liberalism.  In rantings on the conspiracy theory website Above Top Secret, Loughner constantly showed his contempt for Christianity.  Further, on Loughner listed the Communist Manifesto as one of his favorite books on MySpace.

Assassin Loughner a Member of Conspiracy Site "Above Top Secret," Posts Show Hate for Christianity

As information about the assassin Jared Lee Loughner slowly comes out, new facts are slowly trickling in.  One of the newest is that he was a member of the conspiracy website Above Top Secret, whose website's motto is "deny ignorance."

Under the username of "Erad3," a simple rearrangement of his first name, Loughner wrote perplexing and, quite frankly, insane posts several times on the website.  Under his "More Stuff You Should Know" section, he wrote, "Eating a Chicken Pot Pie in a voting booth with the option for a Spanish vote!"

Other topics include a post entitled, "Why is the year infinite in the date," in which Loughner said, in response to "what day is today:" "Today is July 7th 2010620106548435784657841510159543248418954982010654843578465784151015954324841895..."In actuality, the number he wrote was over 900 characters long.

Loughner also rambled on about "infinite currency," which he also posted about on his YouTube page.  In response to Loughner's ramblings, other members wrote that they were "struggling to see the point of [his] topic" and that they weren't sure what he was talking about.

Interestingly, out of all of Loughner's ramblings, one thing becomes crystal clear:  his hatred for Christianity.  Under his username, the assassin constantly bashed the religion; in a topic entitled, "Why does God allow the existance of people who go to hell," Loughner wrote, "God couldn't be a possible! It's being argued with unknown authors for dispute."

In other posts, Loughner's hatred for Christianity becomes even more clear.  In a topic entitled, "108 Year Old Rabbi Predicts Arrival of Messiah," Loughner wrote:
If Christianity philosophy is non-fiction writing then there's a author for the literature 
There's no author for the literature. 
Therefore, Christianity philosophy is not non-fiction writing. 
Crap on anyone who is believing Christianity without evidence of a writer!
In another topic, he wrote this rambling response:
Are you going to tell every poster that its possibly to meet the writer in this current age? 
There are far many books that are easy to remember then the books of the bible.
What if Plato and the other writers of the bible chilled for ten minutes talking about chicken? 
What a sad attempt to know who wrote any of the bible and the story's not in them. 
Very sad and pathetic attempt for something to talk about!
Two things are becoming very clear as the world learns more about this assassin: he is insane and he hate Christianity.

We Were All Attacked Yesterday.

Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was not the only one attacked yesterday morning in Arizona, the United States of America was. Speaker John Boehner said it perfectly yesterday afternoon when news reports indicated the Tucson-area Representative was still alive, despite previously erroneous reports to the contrary, "an attack on one who serves is an attack on all who serve".

The obviously demented murderer didn't just wake up and decide to execute whoever he found at the local supermarket - he planned it. This coward shot Congresswoman Gabby Giffords in the head, first, and then proceeded to kill and wound eighteen other innocent individuals in a matter of seconds, one of which was a little nine-year old girl who was only interested in government.

This was an attack on all of us.

When someone attempts to murder a sitting member of Congress, regardless of which chamber, they are taking a shot at our entire Constitutional and Political foundations. They are also taking a shot at our long held principle that we are a Nation of laws, and not of men.

And as a Nation united in our laws, and our pursuit of Justice - we must all take great offense at this deliberate assault upon one of our citizens who forsook the leisure of private cares, circumstances, and comforts, for the apparent risks of public service. Whatever your political ideology or beliefs, we're all Americans in this time of national mourning.

Congress must convene tomorrow morning and immediately pass legislation authorizing every member of the House, and Senate to hire a personal armed guard for their own security back in their home congressional districts across the nation. The $35 million in budget cuts from last week should be used. Our Representatives should never again be left open and vulnerable to any assault or assassination attempt.

We either live together, or we die together!

I have been critical in the past regarding the silence of moderate islam regarding the radicals in their midst, but this gives one hope.

Egypt’s majority Muslim population stuck to its word Thursday night. What had been a promise of solidarity to the weary Coptic community, was honoured, when thousands of Muslims showed up at Coptic Christmas eve mass services in churches around the country and at candle light vigils held outside.

From the well-known to the unknown, Muslims had offered their bodies as “human shields” for last night’s mass, making a pledge to collectively fight the threat of Islamic militants and towards an Egypt free from sectarian strife.

Among those shields were movie stars Adel Imam and Yousra, popular Muslim televangelist and preacher Amr Khaled, the two sons of President Hosni Mubarak, and thousands of citizens who have said they consider the attack one on Egypt as a whole.

“This is not about us and them,” said Dalia Mustafa, a student who attended mass at Virgin Mary Church on Maraashly Street. “We are one. This was an attack on Egypt as a whole, and I am standing with the Copts because the only way things will change in this country is if we come together.”

In the days following the brutal attack on Saints Church in Alexandria, which left 21 dead on New Year’ eve, solidarity between Muslims and Copts has seen an unprecedented peak. Millions of Egyptians changed their Facebook profile pictures to the image of a cross within a crescent – the symbol of an “Egypt for All”. Around the city, banners went up calling for unity, and depicting mosques and churches, crosses and crescents, together as one.

Representative Giffords background.

Representative Gabrielle Giffords was shot in the head this morning in Tucson, Arizona. She is currently in a hospital in Arizona undergoing surgery. We're all praying for her here at Pundit Press; this violence just cannot stand in America and the assassin must face the death penalty for his deadly attack on Congress.

So who is Congresswoman Giffords?


She married Mark E. Kelly, a current U.S. Navy Captain and astronaut, in November of 2007. She is Arizona's first ever Jewish Congresswoman, she attends the Congregation Chaverim in Tucson, and she is an avid reader. It appears that Congresswoman Giffords is also the mother of two children.


Elected to the Arizona House in November 2000 - served for one term.
Elected to the Arizona Senate in November 2002 - served for two terms.
Elected to the United States House in November 2006, 2008 and 2010.

Doctors: Rep. Giffords is Alive

Breaking: A press conference given by a doctor at a hospital in Arizona not only now says that Rep. Giffords is alive, but that he is "optimistic" at her recovery.

Breaking: Did a Radical Daily Kos Reader try to Assassinate Rep. Giffords?

UpdateBoyBlue has made several comments on DailyKos today, including that he was "gonna go" to the rally today.  This means that it is unlikely that he shot Giffords.

Update: Fox News is identifying the suspect in the Representative Gabrielle Giffords shooting as a 22-year-old male named Jared Laughner.

Today, House Representative Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona was shot in the head while holding a public event in Tucson, Arizona.  Another eleven were also shot; Giffords was reportedly shot at "point blank range."  Giffords and those shot were then rushed to the hospital.

In the shot term, with few answers out there, the major question arises: who shot Representative Giffords and why?  One startling possibility: an angry Daily Kos reader named "BoyBlue" may be behind the shooting.

In a diary written just two days ago, BoyBlue wrote a diary exclaiming that Rep. Giffords was "DEAD to me!" The headline was followed by a rambling diary that contained a passage in which BoyBlue stated that he "shot [himself] in the mouth in a serious suicide attempt" after his same-sex partner left him.

BoyBlue then went on a diatribe against Giffords, writing (with language cleaned up):
"Today, just a little while ago, I saw on Andrea Mitchell Reports (out of the one eye in can still see out of) that Giffords voted AGAINST Nancy Pelosi as our Minority Leader. Rhetorical question:  I fought back from my condition and jumped in with both feet to help Gabrielle Giffords for THIS s**t???"
In other previous posts, BoyBlue rambled about his life as well.  One exclaimed that he was leaving Daily Kos because it had turned "centrist."  In the same post, BoyBlue exclaimed (once again, with language cleaned up):  "Ask yourselves, "How 'progressive' is it to be f**king-over the ONE MAN who is fighting for "us" and one of our own steadfast allies?  No good deed goes unpunished, I guess."

In an even earlier diary, BoyBlue defended someone who took hostages.

Now, according to reports, the attempted assassination was carried out by a man who shouted something before opening fire.

However, remember, all of these reports are preliminary.  BoyBlue may very well be simply a crazed DailyKos reader.

Update: Fox News is now reporting that Rep. Giffords is still alive, despite previous reports.

Where Are The Jobs?

Where Are The Jobs?
There were two reasons for the election of President Obama.  One, after one and a half terms of Bush the Younger, and a Republican shopaholic Congress and half a term with a Democratic shopaholic Congress people were desperate for change.  And two, the economy hit a speed bump in September of 2008.  Candidate Obama promised to control spending so our free economy could create new jobs.  President Obama has so far delivered the greatest spending binge in world history.
His answer to an economy stalled because of government induced bubbles and out-of-control spending was the massive omnibus stimulus filled with “shovel ready jobs” that it took him nearly two years to discover never existed.  Next he squandered his massive political capital seizing industries, ramming national health care down the throat of a protesting America, taking over the financial industry, the Internet, and establishing regulatory control over everything from cradles to graves.
Since his election, as the economy languished, the American people from across the political spectrum have sought leadership in the quest for a recovery.  And what has been the response of our Progressive President and his Progressive-dominated Congress?  Constant promises to focus on job creation to cover the enactment of a radical agenda designed to transform America.
In January 2009, seven days after taking office, President Obama gave his first state of the Union speech.  In this speech, after detailing how deep the Recession had become he said, “That is why jobs must be our number one focus in 2010, and that is why I am calling for a new jobs bill tonight,” and “People are out of work. They are hurting. They need our help. And I want a jobs bill on my desk without delay.”
In February of 2009 while some Progressive legislators were applauding President Obama for his focus on jobs others were petitioning him to actually focus on jobs.
By May of 2009 President Obama’s jobs deficit, which is the range between what has been promised and what has been delivered, reached 6.2 million and was growing by over 500,000 a month.  Holding a series of Jobs Summits at the White House the President continued to promise he was going to focus on jobs.  By October of 2010 the administration’s jobs deficit stood at 7.6 million.
In July of 2009 the promise by the President was for a focus on job creation.  And while Progressive think tanks such as the Economic Policy Institute lauded him for his focus on jobs, in December of 2009 Mr. Obama had to once again promise to turn his focus on jobs since the unemployment rate was stuck at over 9%.
In January of 2010 President Obama in his second State of the Union Address promised to renew his focus on job creation.  Also in January of 2010 the President announced he would spend billions to create green jobs even though no one is quite sure what constitutes a green job and they are projected to cost over 135,000 dollars apiece.  In addition, these are temporary jobs and many of them would be overseas?
By March of 2010 the President’s advisers were predicting an extended period of high unemployment.  Also in March of 2010 the President announced a multi-billion dollar bill to create jobs in small businesses. In April of 2010 the President promised to turn his focus on job creation. By September of 2010 some of the President’s key economic backers as well as over 300 economists were pleading with him to focus on jobs.  In December of 2010 The President announced that our economy is past the crisis point and that now it’s time to focus on jobs.
What has President Obama accomplished in almost two years in office?  One site proudly lists 100 accomplishments.  Another site lists 90 accomplishments.  An abbreviated list of nine is readily available. Another complains he is not getting credit for all he has done and lists the eight they feel are especially noteworthy.  Another site lists seven. 
Taking the opportunity of one of his rare press conferences to remind everyone, “I am President,” he went on to list his latest lame-duck accomplishments, including passing the tax compromise package, ratifying the START nuclear disarmament pact with Russia, and repealing the “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” ban on gays and lesbians serving openly in the military.  He took the opportunity of reviewing his recent accomplishments to place these bi-partisan legislative victories in the context of November’s election saying, “in the wake of the November elections that we have the capacity not only to make progress, but to make progress together.”  Is this the progress you voted for?
Though all these accomplishments have gone a long way in fundamentally transforming America, with the current unemployment rate frozen at over 9 % it’s hard to say they‘ve created any jobs.  Perhaps it’s time to tell a President whose only private sector job made him feel as if he was behind enemy lines that except for more bureaucrats and make-work temporary positions government can’t create jobs.  At best it can create an atmosphere of freedom and then get out of the way. 
We cannot borrow our way to prosperity.  We cannot tax ourselves to solvency.  And we cannot take one hundred dollars from a productive taxpayer, siphon off fifty dollars in handling fees, pay fifty dollars to a make-work employee and call that a job at least not outside the beltway in the real world.  Quit trying to remake America.  Quit taxing and regulating business to a standstill.  Let freedom ring, and then perhaps you’ll learn where real jobs come from: free enterprise.
