Every day conservative media outlets devote incredible amounts of column inches, pixels, and air time to criticize President Obama and his administration. Conservatives comprehensively hammer Obama for his fiscal policies, spending policies, military policies, social policies, regulatory policies, labor policies, education policies, and foreign policies, plus any other policy which failed to make this list. Is such chronic disparagement reasonable? After all, everyone is human. Obama deserves to get cut a bit of slack every now and then, right?
Reflect for a moment on Grey's Law: "Any sufficiently advanced incompetence is indistinguishable from malice" and the law's variously attributed corollary, "Never ascribe to malice that which is adequately explained by incompetence."
I'll wait...
Finished reflecting? Ditto. Those are lousy choices. Malicious or incompetent, either way, America can -- must -- do better.
President Obama and national Democrats have much to answer for. America's barely discernible economic growth is insufficient to accommodate job-seekers. Unimaginably, the national debt has skyrocketed more than $5 trillion in only three years. Food and fuel prices continue to climb -- and the housing market is as bad as it was three years ago.
To support $5 trillion in deficit spending in three years, the Federal Reserve has tried two rounds of "quantitative easing," a euphemism for printing astonishing amounts of money, to buy back, or monetize, our own debt. All that new un-backed liquidity cheapens our currency, inflates prices for commodities, food and fuel among them, and threatens hyper-inflation.

Up until the past election, the Repubs Congress critters have been worse than brow beaten red headed stepchild in their criticism of Obama. It was disgusting up to that point. The newly elected Tea Party legislators have at least given a few of them a spine. If it was not for the conservative media and the Tea Party, you would think Obama was doing a good job.

Obama made promises on the economy and jobs. He has failed miserably. Critizism is well deserved on these issues. You might faintly hear it from the liberal media though. They would be screaming to high heaven if a Repub was in office.

It really isn't a good Idea to speculate about those things, the secret service needs very little reason to knock on your door.

I've seen what happens when he comes to town, he brings an army with him. I'm guessing there have been more than a few attempts they just dont get too far.

Well, they are still "clinging to their guns and religion." That makes them think twice about the deed and makes it harder to aim.:cool:

Yep. Pisslosi is more ballsy than most of the Repub old dogs in Congress. She makes Boehner look like a wimp.

Why didn't the Repub hold a press conference and blast the president for walking out on the budget/deficit meeting?. The Democraps did that at the drop of a hat when Bush was Prez..
