Canadian Writes Misguided Letter Asking Us to Send Obama to Canada

4 Comments

This is from the Tea Party Bulletin.

I think that Richard Brunt must be hooked to an IV of the Obama Kool-Aid as well as smoking with the Choom Gang.

I say send Obama, Mochelle, Dingy Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi  and Eric Holder to Canada.

 

I like folks from Canada. I’ve had close friends who are Canadian, and my impression is that they are genuinely nice people.

But every group apparently has crackpots.

Take this guy: Richard Brunt  wrote a letter to The Detroit Free Press actually titled, “America doesn’t know how good they have it with Obama.” Yes, really.

Canadian-Praises-Obama

He says that many Canadians don’t understand why Americans gave the smackdown to Democrats in the recent mid-term elections. He says that Obama lowered unemployment rates, lowered gas prices, got Osama Bin-Laden, and made the U.S. a leader in the world again and… get this… respected in the world again.

Now, I don’t know what Kool-Aid this guy has been drinking, and I don’t know where he is getting his information, but I have never gotten the impression that Obama brought “respect” to the U.S. internationally. Respect? Really?!?

And, how about those gas prices and decreased unemployment? Maybe this guy doesn’t understand how the unemployment rate has been recalculated to make it look good because areal unemployment rate of 12.6% doesn’t look low or lowered to me. And it still costs out the nose to fill up my gas tank.

Brunt actually says that the U.S. “deficit is rapidly declining.” Interesting, because it really sounds like he is confusing deficit and debt. Just to be clear:

Debt: Total owed from past and present borrowing. Deficit: This year’s borrowing.

You can get more detail about the deficits over the past two administrations here. The point to be made is this, though: it doesn’t matter if the deficit is decreasing if there is no surplus because the amount of debt will keep increasing without a surplus to pay it off.

So, wow, Obama decreased the amount of budget deficit from some of his previous years. Woo-hoo, I’m excited now because that just means that he slowed how quickly we’re digging a hole. Itdoes not mean that the hole is getting smaller or being filled in to get us back to level ground.

So, he misuses terms and makes questionable assertions and then says that voting for candidates that lean toward Tea Party policies “defies reason.”

What really defies reason is this guy’s Liberal Logic and his closing request: “When you are done with Obama, could you send him our way?” Let me tell you, Mr. Brunt, if Biden didn’t scare me so much, I’d ask you to take Obama now.

Laura Bush Responds to Obama Whining About Michelle Not Getting Paid (Click for Video)

2 Comments

This is from Conservative Tribune.

Laura Bush has more class in her little finger than the Shaved Wookie in the White House now.

Mochelle has taken advantage of the tax payers with her lavish vacations.

 

 

During the 2012 campaign, Obama whined at a campaign event focused on women’s issues in Colorado that Michelle doesn’t receive a salary as First Lady.

An obvious ploy to win over women voters, he said that First Lady is a “tough job” and he wants to make sure “she’s getting paid the same as men.”

Never mind all of the taxpayer-incurred costs that Michelle accumulates doing her “job” as First Lady, which, as we’ve written before, includes taxpayer-funded vacations.

Former First Lady Laura Bush spoke recently to CSPAN on this very issue, and her response is great.

Our friends at IJ Review report:

In a sneak-peek for a special “First Ladies” interview with C-SPAN, former First Lady Laura Bush responds to a question about whether or not the president’s spouse should get a salary. She replies that she doesn’t “think so,” because “there are plenty of perks.”

Furthermore, Mrs. Bush adds that the real question is whether or not a “First Gentleman” or a First Lady might be expected to maintain a career while married to the President of the United States.

Mrs. Bush couldn’t have given a classier or more appropriate response.  Instead of insisting on taking even more money for taxpayers, she noted that the First Family is already living in the lap of luxury with chefs, personal assistants, trips, access to Air Force One, and many other benefits.  Demanding a salary on top of the $1.4 billion it takes to fund the White House each year is just immoral and disgusting.

Help us get the word out about this good reminder to Obama from Laura Bush about how many perks the First Lady has included in her “job” without receiving a salary.
