Left-wing pundits and politicos continue to insist that Mitt Romney has yet to express what he wants to accomplish as President. Somehow they seem to ignore his call for a 20% across the board tax cut, repeal of ObamaCare, and enactment of a comprehensive energy plan. Maybe they didn’t notice his plans to balance the budget and strengthen the military, and thus gain greater respect and trust around the world.
But for some reason, President Obama hasn’t been pressed at all to state what he wants to accomplish if he were given four more years in the White House. Through aggressive investigative reporting, we have been able to obtain a top-secret document from the Obama headquarters in Chicago that describes what the President wants to achieve in his second term.
Here are the highlights:
1. This whole thing with General Motors isn’t going quite as well as Obama expected. Taking over the company and wiping out the investors and bondholders had another purpose besides paying off the union members. Obama wanted to transform archaic GM into the world’s foremost producer of chic, super-green electric cars. Despite spending $81 billion of taxpayers’ money, the attempt to foist the Chevy Volt upon the American public has been an utter failure, even with soaring gas prices and massive tax credits. In fact, GM has shut down the production line on three occasions in an attempt to reduce their bulging inventory of unwanted cars.
Apparently, the Obama team has decided to hold a lottery to give away the Volts, much like the one used in his reelection campaign to select his dinner companions. The lucky winners will be given Volts without any tax obligations; unlike those lucky folks on the Price is Right, as Obama is convinced that sales will skyrocket if enough people see them on the road. The thought is that the cost of giving away the Volts is a pittance compared to the money already spent “saving” the American car industry. And, of course, once Americans start buying Volts, the benefits to the environment will catapult electric cars to the forefront of the auto industry.
2. Despite wasting billions of taxpayer dollars in unrecoverable loans to Solyndra and other bankrupt solar energy companies, Energy Secretary Chu never approached achieving his obsessive clean-energy fantasy. No matter how much money was funneled to Obama’s largest campaign contributors or offered to average Americans as tax credits, solar energy hasn’t made a dent in the energy market.
