Barry is Floundering

When the NY Daily News suggests a Democrat president is in over his head, you have admit he’s not doing too good. After all, a couple months ago some people we’re calling Barack Obama the savior. Now they’re calling him clueless.

Let’s face it, he’s made a lot of bad decisions which I’ve recounted before. One of his recent ones tells you how out of touch he really is. He publicly suggested we change our Afghanistan policy to reach out to moderate Taliban. There’s no such thing! Here’s your Taliban:

A top Taliban commander has issued a new threat to foreign aid workers, saying that under the insurgent group’s new “constitution” they will execute them as spies or hold them in exchange for the release of Taliban fighters.

Dozens of crimes across the country, especially acid attacks, have marred the opening of the new school year in Afghanistan. Afghan girls have been burned and scared randomly with acid as punishment for going to school. More than 600 schools did not open this year because of security issues, according to the Afghanistan Education Ministry.

The Taliban is threatening to kill aid workers and girls who want to go to school. Got that? There are no Taliban moderates.

Recently Russia, Cuba and Venezuela have decided to talk about bases for Russian planes. Something they never would have done under Bush.

Iran is getting closer to their bomb and bolder with their war talk. Al Qaeda is also getting bolder with their tapes.

Our enemies don’t see him as a threat. They’re testing him and he’s blinking.

It’s looking more and more like Barry is having a problem keeping it together. It’s a good thing the stock market bumped a little last week. But if it doesn’t improve, people might start looking to make him a scapegoat. He built up his expectations way too high and there’s nowhere left to go but down.

Already his poll numbers are lower than Bush’s at this time in his administration. Considering how angry people were after the 2000 election, that’s saying something.

UPDATE: Is Obama an OCD control freak? All the signs are there.

How Democrats Solve Problems

The Governor of Illinois has a simple solution to the bad economy, raise taxes by 50%!

Gov. Pat Quinn today acknowledged he plans to raise income taxes in the wake of a Chicago Tribune story that he is considering a 50 percent increase on individuals. He declined to confirm details in the Tribune report, which said he is looking at raising the personal income tax from 3 percent to 4.5 percent as well as increasing personal exemptions.

“There will be some that will have a higher tax burden,” Quinn told reporters today during an impromptu news conference at the James R. Thompson Center, adding it would be based on the ability to pay. Quinn said an increase would be part of a “fundamental reform” of the income tax system that would provide tax relief for many Illinoisans. He said that would come from more generous tax exemptions for working families who are suffering amid the nation’s economic decline.

Ah, I see. They want to tax the rich. Why is it that this is the only things Democrats know how to do? They never met a tax hike they didn’t like. In all my years, this is what I have seen them do over and over again. Yet it has been proven time and again to be a bad move. When you punish the people at the top, they pass the costs down the line.

When businesses have to pay more, they charge more. When it costs more for them to do business, they hire less.

It’s really simple. A no braimer. Which is apparently what these politicians have in their skulls. Or don’t have as the case may be.

Al they’re doing is making things worse. Idiots.
