Obama's Big Rush

"The time for talk is over. The time for action is now." Obama left little room for doubt. If Congress did not pass the spending bill immediately, the country would fall apart, and the damage would be "irreversible."

"Rise to the moment," Obama commanded Congress. "Every day, our economy gets sicker," he warned. Upon learning that the national unemployment rate had jumped to 7.6 percent, the highest since 1992, Congress could no longer question Obama's "fierce urgency of now."

Congress acted in accordance with Obama's instructions and produced a bill posthaste. Public negotiations were deemed to be
impracticaltoo time consuming. So fierce was their urgency, they forgot to read the 1,100 page bill, and they broke their 48-hour public posting promise. 

Immediately after the bill was passed on Saturday, Obama signed the bill into law.

...No, wait, that's not what happened.  After pushing Congress to hurry up and pass the trillion dollar stimulus bill, Obama promptly took off for a three-day holiday getaway.  Eh, what's the rush?


Obama delays signing 'urgent' stimulus for Chicago fun
To a critical eye, the hurry to pass the bill appears to have been a con, a legislative stampede.

What's the rush?  Urgent stimulus on hold for Bam's weekend off.
The push to get the bill through before the holiday weekend was so frantic, members of Congress didn't have a chance to read all 1,071 pages of the document before they could vote.  "In a perfect world it would have been nice to have had more time to process it," said Ilan Kayatsky, a spokesman for Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY).

British Women Pay High Price for Multiculturalism
Britain has headed down the same "rape path" as other neighboring  "enhanced" multiculturalized countries, such as Norway, where two out of three rapes are committed by men of "non Western backgrounds". 

Obama levitates, but the train goes off the rails.
One of many highlights of the stimulus bill the Democrats just rammed through Congress is $8 billion for high-speed rail. What makes this appropriation special is that there was no money for high-speed rail in the original House legislation. The Senate bill had $2 billion. The legislation coming out of conference "compromised" on
$8 billion.

Remember when Obama promised to give us
five days to review every bill that ended up on his desk?

"Sunlight is the greatest disinfectant... No more secrecy... And, when there's a bill that ends up on my desk as president,
you the public will have 5 days to look online and find out what's in it before I sign it."

Of course, he had to rush it through Congress.

If the public had time read it, if the media had time to report on it, the popularity of the bill would have plummeted. Then, the Liberals would not have been able to pass all this Socialist (Liberal) garbage. It was all about their ideology, not stimulating the economy.

We knew what he was-yet we chose to pretend he was the Saviour.

Funny thing, for the MSM being so anti-God, they seem to be fulfilling some things in the bible, in the last days false prophets. Mind you I am not saying Obama is a false prophet. I am saying that the media has created a hype of godlike status to a man.

Many seemed to have been enamored that perhaps he is more than a man.

Good thing for the nation though, I foresee an end to our growing obesity crisis. I mean with the way the nation is going we will be having shortages, and runs on food...gotta love marxists/socialistic agenda leaders...

This whole "Obama as messiah cult" thing has really gotten under my skin ...... Some times I wonder if people really think that he is the Messiah, He is the Chosen One, He is the Saviour? He's not mine anyway!!

Great blog RK, I loved it.

1,071 pages? I'm sure he browsed thru the cliff notes. I'm sure he will treat us all like brothers... wait, isn't his real brother living in a cardboard shack in Kenya? Then I'm sure we will get his brotherly treatment.

PJ: "Mind you I am not saying Obama is a false prophet."
Actually if a prophet is a messenger, and Obama's message is false, "false prophet" might not be far off.

DC: Thanks, and thanks for visiting.

SP: Thanks for the link.

DaBlade: We'll be lucky to have a cardboard shack at the end of the Obama era.
