Every now and then I try to check out what the Other Side is doing so today I visited the BarackObama.com campaign website.
Wait--what’s that smell? I recognize it but can’t quite figure it out…oh yeah.
The page opens with a plea from Obama’s Deputy Campaign Manager, Stephanie Cutter.
We have to take this seriously….We don't have billionaires writing $10 million checks, and right now, we can't change the laws that allow the hijacking of our democracy by private money.
Yes they do have billionaires writing checks and wow—what does that even mean, “right now, we can’t change the laws”? Is she implying that they’re considering “hijacking private money” later? But I digress…
Every day between now and November we can combat the huge spending advantage that our opponent and his allies have over regular people.
Yeah. Regular people. Like George Clooney, Sarah Jessica Parker, Anna Wintour, the head of Vogue and the uber-billionaire whom the movie “The Devil Wears Prada” was based upon…
Next, I perused Obama’s Jobs and Economy page and seriously, if he’s reading this stuff its no wonder he believes the private sector is “doing just fine”.
The President is taking aggressive steps to put Americans back to work and create an economy where hard work pays and responsibility is rewarded…We’ve added back more than 4.3 million private sector jobs and seen 27 straight months of job growth—but there’s more work to do.
Unfortunately there’s not a better way to address this statement than to call it what it is: a flat-out lie. The only “aggressive steps” Barack Obama has taken regarding American jobs has been to undercut our oil and coal industries, NASA and our military. If anything, Obama has given jobless Americans even less incentive to find work by giving them the luxury of even more unemployment benefits, which is where most of his jobs have gone--to government workers filling out unemployment paperwork.
