President Obama delivered his weekly radio address attempting to persuade Americans that the best way to get out of an economic crisis caused by irresponsible spending is to proceed cautiously by spending more taxpayer money irresponsibly.
Watch and learn, this is how it’s done:
Some choice parts of the transcript:
Because if we don’t move swiftly to put this plan in motion, our economic crisis could become a national catastrophe. Millions of Americans will lose their jobs, their homes, and their health care. Millions more will have to put their dreams on hold.
So if we don’t waste some ungodly amount of taxpayer dollars, the economic crisis could worsen? How exactly is wasting money on STD prevention going to put Americans back to work?
The American people know that our challenges are great. They don’t expect Democratic solutions or Republican solutions – they expect American solutions.
Which is why President Obama hasn’t compromised on anything and instead has continued to tell everyone “he won” so they need to suck it up and support his record-breaking pork plan.
President Obama is attempting to fear-monger everyone into supporting his legislation, he’s doing exactly what Democrats have always accused the Bush administration of doing with regard to terrorism. We’re being told to support the legislation or the results will be “catastrophic,” a notion I don’t buy in the least.
President Obama is using the current economic circumstances to push through a massive spending bill which would make any tax-and-spend liberal very proud.
There’s your hope and change, my friends.
