The House Obama Built…

Abraham_Lincoln_MemorialLet not him who is houseless pull down the house of another, but let him work diligently and build one for himself, thus by example assuring that his own shall be safe from violence when built.” Abraham Lincoln.

Frankly I’m getting a little tired of hearing 44 liken himself to the aspirations of President Lincoln. That said, it’s always a trick of the Left to hijack the intentions and accomplishments of beloved (and successful) Patriots in order to somehow reconcile their own warped vision for our country. Truth be told, Lincoln might well have jailed the current Commander in Chief for some of his efforts had he been living in Lincoln’s time.

I have studied Lincoln extensively and there is room for discussion of his politics and application of government, (as is certainly the case with all the Presidents). Appropriately, that discussion would have to be in the context of his day and the monumental decisions he was faced with, both from the stand-point of the Civil War and of the nations exploding growth. One thing is for certain however, and it is that Lincolns unshakable faith in God, along with an immeasurable love and understanding of his country’s culture and creed, clearly place him a league Mr. Obama could not possibly hope to play in, ever. Enough said!

The Definition of Success…

BernankeandobamaLooking at some fresh numbers today, and as always I’m a little confused by the “Lame Stream Media” portrayal of our current economic posture. For starters, nearly 23 million households and 48 million individuals partake of the “Snap” (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program). Now these numbers in and of themselves expose the Obama Administration’s  claims of any “recovery” for what they are, carefully contrived deception (with the help of a complicit media), designed to instill a false sense of progress. I also looked at some video from the past week and heard even a few “Conservative” economists characterizing 175,000 jobs created as a “moderate” pace. Now putting aside the fact that number will likely be revised down in the coming week, the reality is that about 200,000 is more traditionally “moderate” in terms of job creation, with 300,000 a sign of true momentum.  I’m simply having a hard time understanding why we continue to revise reality for the sake of this Administrations’ efforts.

The hard truth is our economy remains a shell of its former being. Housing numbers are driven by unsustainable Fed rates propped up by monopoly money, with the DJIA hanging precariously on Bernanke’s every syllable. Companies large and small continue to hire part-time to offset the impending cost of Obamacare and crippling regulation. The class warfare gap has never been wider with more and more people receiving some form of government assistance. Local governments are literally going bankrupt, an unthinkable occurrence one never would have imagined in this country. And most regrettable, our focus is now compromised by the myriad of scandals plaguing President Obama’s second term. This is always what happens when we substitute flawed ideology in place of “truth and reason”.
