Well this is getting a little depressing. I’m really not interested in criticizing the Obama administration all day every day, but I’m not about to stop telling the truth just because some asshole with a D behind his name took power. I did my due diligence: I waited and saw. And what I’m seeing now is raising alarm bells all over the place for anyone willing to pay even an iota of attention. Of course this is America, land of Orwellian language and Marketing Madness, and paying attention is just too hard for the poor dears. Do I sound bitter? Oh, sorry, that’s the insomnia talking.
A few days ago I blogged about the new shell game the Obama administration is playing wherein they circumvent the will of the people and do whatever the fuck they please. Obama is finally starting to show his W. Bush colors after a rocky but almost promising start. Dakinat at The Confluence reports on another feature of this building crisis: mission creep at the FDIC. To the tune of *ahem* 1 trillion dollars. She did such a great job that I won’t insult her by trying to cover the same ground. Just go. Read. If you’re not a coward or slacker, of course. I will point out that some very typical Democrats are buried up to their eye balls on this, so it’s not just the Obama administration (remember, they’re all neocons now):
And two officials with a lot of sway in this area have sought to raise the F.D.I.C.’s borrowing limit (by $100 billion, according to a bill introduced by Representative Barney Frank, and by $500 billion, in a bill introduced by Senator Christopher Dodd).
Oh, Dodd, how little we knew ye when you were perpetrating political stunts to call attention to your presidential campaign, and almost for a minute looked like a good guy. I think it was the sun in my eyes, actually. But I digress.
If you are one of my twelve regular readers, you probably already know about this. But if you’re one of my Obama supporting friends or relatives, or if you are stranger who stumbles upon it, I dare you to ask yourself if you could have supported this under W. Bush. I bet the answer will be a “no” you will be too afraid to voice. I dare you to post here why you can support it with Obama. I have a theory that 8 years of Bush-style corruption has left the left feeling a little entitled to some corruption from their leaders, and with such a blind trust in their party that they refuse to believe what is right in front of their eyes now. If you’re an Obama supporter it may be difficult to come to terms with this, but you must for the health of this country. We literally can’t afford for you to continue to lie to yourself.
