Obama Bails On the Eve Of Destruction

Human Events

A government shutdown looms.  President Obama is demanding non-stop meetings between congressional leaders to resolve the crisis.  “I will have my entire team available to work through the details of getting a deal done,” he declared.

The “entire team” does not include Obama himself.  He’ll be in New York, hanging out with Al Sharpton.

On the verge of an event Democrats have been describing as fiscal Armageddon – a crash that will cause Social Security and tax rebate checks to become jammed in the lifeless gears of a broken $3 trillion government engine – and which has only descended upon us because the Democrat Party did not fulfill its duty to pass a budget when it held both houses of Congress, the President is off to New York to address the 20th anniversary celebration of racial arsonist Al Sharpton’s National Action Network.

Before that, according to the Washington Post, the President will spend the afternoon holding a “town hall meeting on energy” at a wind turbine plant near Philadelphia.  This has absolutely nothing to do with the re-election campaign that was formally launched on Monday, and the value of Pennsylvania as a crucial swing state.  Fortunately, the Weather Channel says 14mph winds are expected today, so at least the turbine blades will be turning.  A backdrop of motionless windmills would have been an uncomfortably accurate glimpse of America’s future during a second Obama Administration.

Remember when Obama claimed his top priority was job creation?  Never mind.  His highest priorities, even higher than helping his party atone for its failure to produce a budget, are securing the political support of Al Sharpton, and selling his job-killing energy ideas.

It matters where a leader puts his energy, and presence, in a moment of crisis.  The disconnect between Democrat rhetoric about “government shutdowns” and Obama’s behavior is jarring.  It’s one more slap in the face to an electorate that is being told the Republicans trying to deal with the budget are somehow responsible for the impending catastrophe, while simultaneously they are shown the President has absolutely nothing to contribute to the discussion.

  1. I AM SO FED UP WITH REPUBLICANS. BOEHNER NEEDS TO BE OUT THERE SCREAMING ABOUT THE USURPER SUBVERTING THE CONSTITUTION. DEMAND THE B*****D’S ACTUAL BIRTH RECORDS AND “ALL COLLEGE” RECORDS. OBAMA IS A BIG “MUSLIM LIAR”. BOTH HIS FATHER AND HIS GRANDFATHER OBAMA WERE MUSLIMS FROM AFRICA. SO, IN THE WORLD HE IS CLASSIFIED AS A MUSLIM SON.(NO MATTER WHAT) OBAMA SR. NEVER BECAME AN AMERICAN CITIZEN. NEVER. THEN A MUSLIM STEPFATHER-LOLO SOTORO ADOPTS HIM AND HE LIVES IN A MUSLIM COUNTRY FOR YEARS BEFORE RETURNING BACK TO THE STATES. GO FIGURE? HE IS BY ARTICLE 2, SEC. 1,CLAUSE 5 NOT A NATURAL BORN CITIZEN EVEN IF HE HAD BEEN BORN IN THE LINCLON BEDROOM AT THE WHITEHOUSE. TRUMP HAS THE TRUTH. PLEASE LISTEN.

    • I have a feeling Trump is going to find something, if he do something with it is another story.

  2. Less than two years after President Obama touted an economic dream team to save the U.S. Summers announcement Tuesday came less than a month after House Minority Leader John Boehner urged Obama to demand the resignation of his entire team of economic advisers. ….Summers exit follows hard on the heels of the departure of budget chief Peter Orszag who has publicly broken with the White House by urging an extension of the Bush-era tax cuts for the wealthy that Obama opposes…..White House chief economist Christina Romer also has left.
