Will Mr. Obama Please Leave The Room?

Americans lost a lot of money today!  I seems that Wall Street investors are not in the least bit reassured that the U.S. Economy will rebound from the excesses that have caused it to plummet.  The standoffs in Washington, D.C. and the subsequent deal that was reached have not convinced investors.  Thus, the stock market plummeted today to over 500 points, wiping out all the gains made in 2011, sending global markets into a panic,  and leaving Americans  nervous about their uncertain future.  This disastrous day appeared to be Wall Street's way of celebrating Obama's 50th birthday - if ever there was a "no confidence vote" this was it.

Meanwhile back at the White House, Barack Hussein Obama was busy hosting a backyard barbecue to celebrate his 50th birthday. He'd let congressional leaders negotiate and avoid the predicted doomsday, and this was his time to celebrate.  Are we who fear another recession supposed to be impressed by this humble fest?  Watching him speak at a fundraiser today and making light of the speed with which his hope and change promises were to occur angered us. Obama now says that the changes he intended to achieve would not take place overnight.  He's had three years! One problem that we have, even hearing him speak, is that every change that Obama has brought about has been detrimental to the United States and to the American people.

Much has been said about the compromise reached by Congress and the president.  Even more has been said about House Majority Leader John Boehner, and some of it we fear has been unfair.  John Boehner is but one man with a terrific weight on his shoulders, attempting to negotiate a deal that would satisfy his own divided party, let alone persuade Democrats and an intransigent president to go along with it.  We don't believe anyone really won, and the only thing accomplished was to put off the country's default for a while longer.  However, before we ravage the man, try walking in his shoes. 

If taking a good hard look at our economy, our unemployment rate, our rising costs of living, our depressed housing market, the instability of our health care system, the cut backs on our defense budget, and  reduction in budget for our children's education isn't enough to scare the living daylights out of you, then you are in for a big surprise, and you need to dig your head out of the sand.

If you are one of those fools who still believes that voting for Barack Hussein Obama was the proper thing to do, then read the article below. Your dear leader doesn't lead from behind, as some state, in our opinion he doesn't lead at all.

The article below, written  by Mark Hemmingway, and  appearing today in The Weekly Standard gives a rare look at the negotiations that led to the debt crisis compromise. It's clear that his input was small if any at all.  Read it and weep for your country.
Two Sisters


From "leading from behind" to "leading from outside."


by Mark Hemminway

There's a fascinating story over at The Hill that was published yesterday, "How John Boehner escaped disaster." I don't think we should get ahead of ourselves here, but certainly there's a storyline emerging here that when it comes to the art of the deal, Boehner is one of the more capable politicians of the era.

But now that details from the smoky backroom debates are emerging, how's Barack Obama's reputation faring? Well, not good at all. Here's a curious detail from The Hill's report on Boehner. It seems that Democrats and Republicans asked "the only adult in the room" to leave said room so they could hash out a deal:
On July 23, they claim, the White House called Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), telling her not to participate on a call with Boehner, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). Pelosi informed Reid, who declined to participate, and the call was canceled, the Republican sources said. (A Pelosi spokesman could not be reached for comment.)

Later that day, the four leaders met with Obama at the White House. At one point, GOP officials said, the Democratic and Republican leaders asked Obama and his aides to leave the room to let them negotiate.
 Recall this was just one day after Obama's angry and unflattering press conference and after Boehner had announced that he was withdrawing from White House talks to deal with Harry Reid and congressional Democrats directly. Obama, however, still insisted on summoning Congressional leaders to the White House for talks.

Add this to Obama's confrontation with Eric Cantor and storming out of earlier talks, and it sure looks like Mr. First-Class Temperament's attitude was getting in the way of a deal.

But don't worry, I'm sure the Obama administration was "leading from the outside."
