President Obama may be getting kudos from Michael Moore and the Actors at the Emmy Awards for his uber liberal deficit-reduction plan delivered yesterday, but something seems to be brewing that does not bode well for the lifespan of the liberal ideology.
The tale of Barak H. Obama must have seemed like the most perfectly scripted movie for liberals–who were obviously its biggest fans…but, fate is re-writing the ending at this very moment.
Let’s look back.
Barak H. Obama seemed to be “groomed” for the roll of President of the United States, having had a very diverse, multicultural background, living in several different places around the world, and developing a disarming charm underneath a well-crafted public persona.
A graduate of the two most touted “Old World” Ivy League schools, Columbia University in New York City, the crossroads of the world, followed by Harvard Law School, located in Boston, the bluest of “blueblood” towns.
Upon graduation, it was on to Chicago, the heartland of the country, where he honed his skills as a motivating public speaker and became champion of the urban minority poor, with whom his ethnicity especially resonated.
Moving right along, he was indoctrinated into the infamous Chicago political power structure, which gave him the impetus to seek and win public office as an Illinois state senator.
Fast-forward to 2004, when the DNC recognized his oratory skill and gave him the main stage as a key speaker at the Democratic National Convention–making him a liberal “star”.
In 2006, Oprah Winfree’s first endorsement catapulted the Barak Obama brand, followed again in 2007, but most importantly, for him, in 2008, when two economists estimated that her endorsement gave him 1 million extra votes in the Democrat primary race, allowing his star power to overcame the revered “Clinton Machine”, and handily win the Democrat party presidential nomination.
Raising a mind-boggling billion dollar campaign warchest, combined with social networking technology prowess, made Senator Barak H. Obama (D-IL) an international “superstar” over night, such that everywhere he went to speak, they were mega-hyped concert-sized events, including the famous July 24, 2008 speech that he gave in Berlin, Germany, before the largest crowd in the history of his campaign.
Thanks in large part to the aid of a compulsive-obsessive global mainstream media operating more as an adjunct contract public relations firm for Obama, allowed him to enjoy an almost assured substantial victory over the much weaker and bland “persona” of long-sitting U.S. Senator and war hero John McCain (R-NM).
His win caused the world to go wild with anticipation, with the media literally granting Barak Obama “Mesiah” status, and alongside him, Michelle Obama was crowned as the worlds fashion and style icon, by every fashion magazine on the planet.
On January 20, 2009, Barak H. Obama was inaugurated with more fanfare than the world spectacle generated by the royal marriage of Prince Charles and Princess Diana of Wales, a new world order was ushered in, with President Barak H. Obama taking the helm of the richest, most powerful nation in the history of the Earth, whose future was boundless with possiblities.
President Obama immediately unleashed Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and the intimitable Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), giving them absolute free reign to design, pass and implement the ‘Galactic Liberal Action Plan’, which would not only solve the financial and banking crisis going on in the real world, but stimulate the U.S. economy so that it would promptly return to its halcyon days of prosperity and abundance for all Americans.
The “honeymoon” was perhaps made longer than usual, bouyed by an anxious press, who had “mortgaged” their very objectivity in favor of this savior of the world, in hopes to cement the Democrat party, and the agenda of the most liberal member of the U.S. Senate, in place as Master of the Universe.
But, cruel reality caught up with President Obama, and one by one, each of the anti-Bush reversals that he emphatically promised would occur within the first 100 days (before he actually knew what he was talking about), did not.
The greatest creeping failure happened when the lofty expectations from the nearly $1 trillion stimulus plan failed to materialize. Instead of it … “keeping the unemployment rate under 8%” (when he began it was at 7.8%), it moved without hesitation to above 10%, then settled back into above 9% to this day.
Unfortunately for President Obama, the Democrat party, the liberal ideology and even the so-called “Mainstream Media”, when you raise the stakes so high as to annoint a Mesiah for President, and whose party has total control of the government–if you roll snake eyes [lose the bet], your losses could ruin you.
The beginning of “their” end occurred in the stunning mid-term election losses they sufferred in November 2010.
Today, adding insult to injury, is the effect of $4 trillion in deficit spending, including the stimulus, raising the level of our national debt to equal our entire GDP of nearly $15 trillion, all while our economy is likely entering another recession.
However, now we have an effective stalemate, because it is not in the DNA of President Barak Obama to abandon his liberal blueprint for America, and businesses are hoarding over $2 trillion in cash (mostly in overseas subsidiaries in lower tax rate countries) and not using it to invest in expansion and job growth in the United States.
More ominous is that the future America is being revealed before our very eyes, as if by the “Ghost of Christmas Future”, with the entire European Union financial system and economy (except for Switzerland which didn’t join the EU or indulge in social entitlement programs), buckling under the weight of crushing national debt, used by politicians to give the people all the social entitlement programs they wanted, in order to win re-election, sharing the same attitude as our politicians that the next guy/generation along can clean it up.
Finally, when most Americans realize that the beneficiaries of the so-called “jobs plan”, released by President Obama two weeks ago, are his far left-wing, “wealth redistribution” and union voting base; and that the deficit reduction plan unveiled yesterday, reveals that his political nemesis will be paying for this new round of political largesse, is really a vile act of “class warfare” to get re-elected…while abandoning the majority of Americans.
Regardless, neither of these measures will pass, and thanks to the nationized energy of the Tea Party, the pendulum will continue to swing back in the direction of common sense and reason.
Then, come November 2012, the election will summarily defeat President Obama and as many liberal congressional ideologs as possible, so that our country can quickly act to make the necessary “changes” to our fiscal operating and entitlement program structures, in order for us to truly return to days of prosperity and abundance.
And in its wake, it is entirely possible that with the size of the bet placed on the Obama presidency, and his failure as a president, it will bankrupt the Liberal Ideology.
