Make the Democrats Own the Obama Economy

"...eight of the 10 richest counties voted for Obama. ... residents invariably vote like welfare recipients. Seven of the 10 richest senators are Democrats." With those demographics, and Warren Buffet, etc bleating their affection for all things Obama, let 'em eat cake! The bottom line is that the "rich" are not people with incomes of $200k or more, when predominantly those are the small business owners whose "income" reflects their business revenue and not their real take home pay. But with Obamacare ready to kick in, the small business owner is already readying the blindfolds and cigarettes. The firing squad is already mustered. The result is already determined . . .

You can't rub two nickles together and get a quarter. The simple economics of it is that the "rich" are either going to pay more income taxes or more Obamacare fees. Its going to happen, so why stand around and argue the merits of taxing the "rich." If the most vocal of them are going to pull the lever for the Socialist Democrats, then let them pay for the privilege, because the majority of the taxed are going to pay more anyway.

Ann is absolutely correct. The Socialist Democrats MUST OWN their economy.
It is absolutely insane that Obama got a huge mulligan for his feckless economic policy, two year spending spree, and Socialist agenda. No other president (at least in a modern world with somewhat real time media (ie, newspapers, telegraph, perhaps radio . . .) has ever received such a pass on four years of incompetence that did nothing to improve the lot of most Americans. Even FDR was answerable for the general direction of the war . . .
GHWB got tossed for a fairly mild recession, after winning a war! Why? Because the MSM proved it could protray a philandering rapist as a better option than a war hero to an American public with an attention span shorter...

Yeah, we have to make sure the Socialist Democrats OWN their handiwork. The end result is already known and the timetable is pretty well set. The blame game will commence immediately, but the GOP must be on record, EVERY SINGLE DAY, stating exactly what is the cause of the impending financial disaster: the Democrat Socialist entitlement program spending spree and government expansiion they have overseen.

When the inevitable collapse occurs, and only then, can the adults stand up and say to the infantile, "Sit down, and shut up! You've done enough damage already."

Lets hope there will be enough time to clean up the mess and pick up the pieces . . .

One bright spot of Barack Obama's re-election was knowing that unemployment rates were about to soar for the precise groups that voted for him -- young people, unskilled workers and single women with degrees in gender studies. But now the Democrats are sullying my silver lining by forcing Republicans to block an utterly pointless tax-raising scheme in order to blame the coming economic Armageddon on them.

Democrats are proposing to reinstate the Bush tax cuts for everyone ... except "the rich." (Why do only tax cuts come with an expiration date? Why not tax increases? Why not...
