Obama's conundrum

Obama's conundrum

The Democrat Party is facing a bleak November. You hear reasons for it but let's look at the record.

Here's the accomplishments of the Obama Administration

The TARP program to prevent a meltdown on Wall Street

The Stimulus Package which the President claims has created or save 2.5 million jobs

The Healthcare Package which Democrat Presidents since FDR have been trying to pass

The Financial Reform Package

Actually these are an impressive list of accomplishments. So what this is the problem with the Democrats running on these accomplishments.

To put it simply, these are the Democrat priorities, not the American people's priorities. The American people are very concerned about unemployment, the size of the deficit, and illegal immigration. Add to this, Obama's pledge not to raise taxes on anyone earning under $250,000 per year which appears to be one of the casualties of the enormous increase in the deficit and the federal government's suing Arizona for a law that 70% of American's agree with and you have the perfect storm if you are a democrat running for office this year.

Democrat financial logic?

With the wedding this week of Chelsea Clinton, it seems a little strange that Hillary Clinton is still trying to get doners to retire her debt from the 2008 campaign. The wedding is estimated to cost between 3 and 5 million dollars. But if you do make a $35 or more donation for this, you get a free DVD of Hillary's speech at the 2008 convention.

Is Obama a Socialist?
Here's an interesting take on it.

Two years of research into Obama’s past forced me to change my mind. The
truth is that Obama’s political rise is so profoundly enmeshed in a decidedly
(if often stealthily) socialist world that the issue simply must be addressed.
Radical-in-Chief is no mere rehash of my writings during the campaign.
Overwhelmingly, it consists of new evidence, all of which forces us to explore
the little-known world of post-1960′s American socialism. Organized American
socialism may have limited public influence in the country at large (although
its behind-the-scenes role is significantly greater than is generally realized),
but it had an immense impact on the political development of Barack Obama. That is what I have discovered.

Here's a situation that is analogous to Arizona's Immigration law.

Dupree allegedly stole a bicycle locked inside and was apprehended after the
owner, Anthony McKoy, saw him with the bike down the street.

Dupree says McKoy and two others pointed a gun at him, handcuffed him and placed a knee painfully in his back. He's seeking $500,000 for disabilities and distress suffered during the takedown.

McKoy is in the situation that the people of Arizona are in except to make the analogy work, it would be the DA who would be bringing the charges against him.
