Hey Barack – Sometimes the Grown Ups Have To Tell the Children NO!

It seems like the Democrats and Barack Obama are a bunch of spoiled children throwing a temper tantrum every time they don’t get their way.

In a speech over the weekend Obama whined:

The president taunted Republicans for consistently opposing his economic policies and said they seem to be running on a slogan of “No, we can’t,” playing off his 2008 presidential campaign mantra of “Yes we can.”

“If I said the sky was blue, they’d say no,” Obama said. “If I said fish live in the sea, they’d say no.”

I recall my kids telling me I was the parent of “no”.

“You never let us have any fun” they would say.

But sometimes the grown ups just have to say no!

Obama has enjoyed complete control of the House and Senate since he began. The idea that Republicans are somehow getting in the way is absolutely laughable. YOU HAVE THE MAJORITY!

Republicans can say no all they want, but their voice is nearly silenced by these majorities. For now.

So, why would Obama care if the Republicans say no?

Because saying no to the overspending gives Americans a reason to think about the legislation being rushed through. It even gives Republicans a chance to read and digest the bills. Worse (for Obama), it gives the American people time to take a closer look. And there are always things under the hood that Obama does not want us to see.

The main weapon Obama and the Democrats have been using is telling the American people that the Republicans are lying. Only it has turned out that these “lies” ware facts. Worse, the unintended consequences of these bills have been devastating.

The American public has learned that this Administration is not above lies and deceit to get their “dream bills” passed. And they hope the laws will become irreversible.

No is the most important word when it comes to restraint. And slow should be the second word.

This president and his Democratic cohorts have had ample time, despite their objections, to get the economy moving in a positive direction. The fact that the decline has slowed is not good enough. At some point it will, of it’s own accord, settle to the bottom, and perhaps, begin to recover. But it has become increasingly obvious that all the bright ideas from the Obama Administration have done is slow the fall and delay the recovery. Perhaps they have even prevented any recovery with the massive spending.

Republicans have successfully used the one – two punch of tax cuts and stimulus to kick start the economy. It is a tried and true method. Democrats abandoned the known fix in order to try their own ideas. The problem with their stimulus is that the Democrats are seemingly unable to resist the urge to direct the money to pet projects that have nothing to do with repairing an economy and more to do with ideological hypotheses.

Green jobs? Really? The green products are always more expensive and less efficient than the current version, which means they will be slow to take hold in a recession when people are fighting to survive. Somehow, the child like Democrats are unable to grasp these basic truths.

And the country will never recover what has been lost as long as businesses are shamed and attacked for making money.

Sometimes, we need to tell the children no!

And in November, the Democrats will be sent to their rooms, too.

    When I saw Obama banging his spoon on his high chair this weekend it was simply…….pathetic.

    Have you ever seen such a cry baby? He owns the White House. He owns the Senate. He owns the House of Representatives. And he damned near owns the Supreme Court.

    Poor little baby. He just doesn’t own the American people, who are actually the only reason he gets any blowback at all.

    Personally, I am anxiously anticipating his long and miserable life as a failed one term ex-President. A bitter man, choking on his caviar and champagne, while having to endure his misery with his grievance monger wife in relative obscurity and living as a pariah among his own party.

    Long live the king….of losers.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
