As if constant ranting at business entrepreneurs isn't enough, Obama now believes government is largely responsible for their successes. Somehow he failed to mention how a hostile attitude along with burdensome regulations and debt is helping the economy. He failed to mention how a bungling, static, divisive government can manage better than entrepreneurs competing in a global marketplace. It was the inventors, the entrepreneurs, the risk-takers and, yes, the capitalists who made America great.
In his harangue over "tax cuts for the rich," the president failed to mention that the Bush tax cuts also cut taxes for the middle class and poor. He also failed to mention, due to the tax cuts, business expanded and more revenue was generated than at the old, higher rates. He has conspicuously propagandized his government's help, but failed to mention how a government can operate responsibly without having a budget.
Haranguing Congress was mis-leading. After all, he failed to mention that since turning down several good proposals, his own proposal was voted down 97-0 in the Senate..
In contending we are the only industrialized country not to have universal health care, Obama failed to mention that in most countries with universal health care, government bureaucracy inevitably costs more and leads to worse, not better, health care. People requiring vital health care in those countries don't go to Canada, England or France for treatment. They come to the U.S. Unfortunately, the health care bill rammed through Congress "so that you can find out what's in it" severely obstructs the ingenuity and efficiency the competitive private sector does best.
The thought government can take income and property from one and distribute to others according to their concept of what is right and fair is appalling. To do so in such an inept, partisan way is scary.
Fortunately, we can still vote this November for a man with a record of success in a competitive market place. Political ads that distort his record will surely backfire and the people will see what is truly at stake in this most critical of elections.
