In December 2008, economists were predicting the end of the recession by Spring 2009. All indications were correct.
As a small business owner, I had finally seen a pretty good uptick in sales, which meant the struggle during 2008 was over.
However, Emmanuel saw it as an opportunity to pay back Obama supporters, and "No good crisis should be left to waste."
After all, $400 Billion of the so-called stimulus bill was sent to pet pork projects. Then added is the Apollo Alliance bragged about writing it...and put in a nice 1/2 billion for themselves...but that is another story.
Obama's rhetoric about how dire the economy was sent stocks into a nosedive. By March, I saw orders placed in December either put on hold or canceled. Never thought 2009 would turn out to be far worse than 2008. My business isn't surviving, and I watched others in my field shut their doors permanently. Ones that had been around 30+ years.
As a Democrat, I am saddened more than you could ever know. Here we have one of the most gifted orators in America using his words to put down banks, CEOs, doctors (after all, they perform operations for an extra few bucks, right?), Americans, Executives, Wall Street and Main Street Americans that disagree with his policies.
And now FOX news? Does President Obama know that 46% of FOX viewers are Democrats and Independents? You know, the folks that got him elected?
Obama has one thing right. Words matter.
Instead of using his as a way to build up the country, he tears it down. WHY?
Not a peep from the media about 3 Million pink slips sent to the House and Senate last week. All personalized. 3 Million.
Only We the People can create change. Only We the People can sweep out corruption in politics. President Obama has proven he knows the game better than anyone, and that his politics are not different than anyone else that is drunk on power.
That is heart-breaking.
