A Patriotic Response To The “Clown Prince;” 07/07/2012

    I’m here in Ohio, where I’ve spent the past couple days talking with folks about our central challenge as a country – not just reclaiming all the jobs lost to the recession, but reclaiming the economic security that so many Americans have lost over the last decade. Our mission isn’t just to put people back to work – it’s to rebuild an economy where that work pays; an economy in which everyone who works hard has the chance to get ahead. For months, I’ve been pushing Congress to pass several common-sense ideas that will help us do that. And on Friday, I signed into law a bill that will do two things for the American people.

[What I’m not telling you: Rebuilding the economy can, is and will be, a daunting task. Finally–when my dismal re-immaculation chances finally hit home–I’ve decided to reverse the regime’s objectives that served us well for the past three-and-a-half years.  No longer–at least until my (doubtful) second term as your exalted ruler–can we be so arrogant as to believe the American taxpayer, the American patriot, will stand by and continue to allow the Bilderberg-demanded destruction of the United States’ economy, jobs market, middle-class!!

    The obama Depression is following–almost in lock-step with–the Roosevelt Depression of 1930-1949.  Having never read any U.S. history texts, I was unaware the failed obama policies were almost verbatim repeats of the failed Roosevelt policies. If the comparisons hold, the country will be in the current obama Depression for another sixteen years, until 2028.]

First, it will keep thousands of construction workers on the job rebuilding our nation’s infrastructure.

Second, it will keep interest rates on federal student loans from doubling this year – which would have hit more than seven million students with about a thousand dollars more on their loan payments.

    Those steps will make a real difference in the lives of millions of Americans. But make no mistake: we’ve got more to do.  The construction industry was hit brutally hard when the housing bubble burst. So it’s not enough to just keep construction workers on the job doing projects that were already underway. For months, I’ve been calling on Congress to take half the money we’re no longer spending on war and use it to do some nation-building here at home. There’s work to be done building roads and bridges and wireless networks. And there are hundreds of thousands of construction workers ready to do it.

[What I’m not telling you: At the risk of being redundant all over again, you don’t need to be reminded that one primary purpose of the $787 Billion PORKlus legislation was to repair the roads, bridges and other infrastructure modifications necessary to keep a ‘working America’ continuing on the road to recovery.  Most of that funding went to reward the auto unions by giving them a major ownership stake in ‘Government Motors’ after the regime bought the company.  Another large–but again, wasted–expenditure was rewarding the management of various green-energy enterprises as they awaited bankruptcy filings.]

    The same thing is true for our students. The bill I’m about to sign is vital for millions of students and their families. But it’s not enough to just keep their student loan rates from doubling. For months, I’ve been calling on Congress to reform and expand the financial aid that’s offered to students. I’ve been asking them to help us give two million Americans the opportunity to learn the skills that businesses in their area are looking for – right now – through partnerships between community colleges and employers. In America, a higher education cannot be a luxury reserved for just a privileged few. It’s an economic necessity that every American family should be able to afford.

[What I’m not telling you: At the risk of being redundant all over again, this student-loan interest rate debacle can be laid at the feet of the democratically-controlled 110th Congress (2007-2009) and I quote from reports on the original bill:

 “On January 17, 2007, the House passed a bill amending the Higher Education Act of 1965 to reduce interest rates on certain federal loans. The final vote was 356-71.”

“Specifically, the bill gradually decreases the rate on subsidized federal loans until 2011, when it hits a temporary low of 3.4 percent for a six-month period. Once that period is up, the rate will revert to 6.8 percent unless future legislation dictates otherwise.”

    The democratics–thinking they might need an emotional campaign issue in 2012–essentially ‘kicked-the-can-down-the-road‘ rather than the solution of a permanent interest rate.  as the obamacRATics demonize the republicRATs over this issue it would bode well for the electorate to bear the aforementioned in mind when in their polling place(s).]

Finally, I want to thank every American who took the time to sit down and write a letter, type out an e-mail, make a phone call or send a tweet hoping your voice would make a difference. I promise you – your voice made all the difference. And as long as I have the privilege of being your President, your voice will be heard in the White House.
