Shameful?

“It is shameful,” Obama said from the Oval Office Thursday. “And part of what we’re going to need is for the folks on Wall Street who are asking for help to show some restraint, and show some discipline, and show some sense of responsibility.”

No, Mr. President,

What is shameful is that while the average American is struggling to pay bills, members of congress give themselves a pay raise. 

While the average American is cutting back on expenses, members of Congress enjoying dining in their private dining rooms and swim at their expensive health clubs.  They have multiple homes (one in D.C. and one in their home district). 

While average Americans are worrying about job losses Congress has one of the best retirement programs anywhere. 

While the average American is filled with worry and anxiety about how they will support their families, The President and Congress enjoy all the perks that those horrible “fat cats” on Wall Street get if not more. 

While average Americans wonder if they will even take a vacation this year or wonder about their kids birthday present, the President and the Democrats spend a record amount on his Inauguration.

While the average American puts off buying a new car and gets by with their old one or they “make do” with the broken dryer, the President spends OUR money redecorating the White House.

“There will be time for them to make profits, and there will be time for them to get bonuses … Now is not that time.”

Except for the tax cheat Timothy Gietner who just walked away with a nice $450,000 bonus from the Feds.  Also, so now Govco is going to tell us when we can make profits and when we can’t.  THAT is shameful Mr. President.  I hope you fail and fail big time.

    There is nothing in the Constitution that allows the Federal Government to dictate how much an individual can make. The Minimum Wage simply creates inflation causing more problems, and how Obama is hinting at a Maximum Wage to limit how much a person can succeed. And I know, as all great Socialist leaders before them, there will be the rules “for us” and rules “for them”, so my “cap” will not be the same as their “cap”.

    He didn’t think it was shameful to spend the most amount of money ever recorded for an inauguration! The once reported 140 million are comming out that it was more like 160 million. Now that is SHAMEFUL!

  3. Josh Brandt Says:

    His pork bill is shameful!

    Mitch Albom, Liberal SPORTS columnist for the Detroit Free Press agrees:

    ‘Enough is enough. If they won’t stop this elitist immorality, the government should make them.”

    Really Mitch…should Govco step in and tell YOU that you make too much? If they start here, they won’t stop.

  5. Josh Brandt Says:

    While I agree that enough is enough, the government has no business taking charge of this.

  6. theNimrod Says:

    All good points. This is where fairness gives way to equality – government mandated equality. Obama and those that think like he does cannot, for some reason, understand or accept that fundamentally these companies must be policed by their shareholders, just like a democratic republic must fundamentally be policed by the people.

  7. Dan The Man Says:

    Good point Nimrod. What many fail to realize when points like that are made is that extremes in regards to virtually everything, are bad. There are those out there who point to this economic crisis and say that it proves capitalism does not work. Extreme capitalism, yes, is bad. Managed and self-policed capitalism works every time.

  8. Josh Brandt Says:

    …And socialism fails every time.

  9. Dan The Man Says:

    Found a great quote from the Washington post yesterday from Obama press secretary:

    “Robert Gibbs told reporters Tuesday, “The bar that we set is the highest that any administration in the country has ever set.”

    During a briefing filled with questions about Tom Daschle’s decision to withdraw from consideration to be Health and Human Services secretary, Gibbs pointed to experts who describe the administration’s ethics rules as the strongest in history.

    He also said those experts recognized that Obama would need to make exceptions to his pledge to run an administration free of former lobbyists.”

    You may want to make this into a post. It’s quite amusing. Especially the part about making exceptions to his pledge. Obama already has three people who have “ethics” issues (one of them was actually approved by Congress). I don’t quite understand how you can say you are the most ethical yet make exceptions to those ethics.
