A Warning to Obama

Pop quiz.  

Who stated the following?

The state's increased role in times of crisis is a natural reaction to market setbacks. Instead of streamlining market mechanisms, some are tempted to expand state economic intervention to the greatest possible extent.

The concentration of surplus assets in the hands of the state is a negative aspect of anti-crisis measures in virtually every nation.

In the 20th century, the Soviet Union made the state's role absolute. In the long run, this made the Soviet economy totally uncompetitive. This lesson cost [them] dearly. I am sure nobody wants to see it repeated.

Nor should we turn a blind eye to the fact that the spirit of free enterprise, including the principle of personal responsibility of businesspeople, investors and shareholders for their decisions, is being eroded in the last few months. There is no reason to believe that we can achieve better results by shifting responsibility onto the state.

And one more point: anti-crisis measures should not escalate into financial populism and a refusal to implement responsible macroeconomic policies. The unjustified swelling of the budgetary deficit and the accumulation of public debts are just as destructive as adventurous stock-jobbing.

So who said it?  Was it Newt Gingrich?  Ron Paul? Would you believe it was Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland last month?

It's interesting to note that Putin understands that it's not even in Russia's interest for America to go socialist. Obama worshipers worldwide need to understand that a weakened, impoverished America is not necessarily what they need right now.


Stimulus Bill Railroaded through Congress before Obama cabinet ready to spend it
Of course, the New York Times waits until AFTER the bill passes to point out the obvious; with precious few cabinet people in place and Bush holdovers manning many desks, there's no one in the departments who can authorize spending the $787 billion that the president swore to us we had to pass NOW or else: 

Rush to Wait 
A 1,000-page bill passed in two days sat unsigned on the president’s desk for three.

Were They At The Same Meeting?
Charity requires that one concede the possibility that genuine piety was a part of Pelosi’s (rather boorish, and certainly irregular) insistence on being given a private moment with the pope during her current taxpayer-funded junket to Rome. But her office’s statement on today’s meeting makes it clear something else was afoot...

What is the incentive for the millions of Americans to continue paying their mortgages? What is the reason to continue to go to work?

Obama is something and I am not sure what, but the only plan I see by his plan is the complete and total demise of MY COUNTRY and I am angry.

It is over as far as I see it, and I think that the dollar has been corrupted by our SPENDY LEADERS...

"Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial, we have always been, and we, I believe, continue to be, in too many ways, a nation of cowards,” attorney general, Eric Holder


any thoughts rk?

RightKlik said...

RV: faster than I thought wsd possible

CS: It didn't take long. And it will happen more frequently as Obama gets to be more unpopular.

WHT: it's like they are brainwashed.

HW: it's a trap. Work hard to take care of yourself, they take it away. Sit there and let them take care of you, then they have even more control.

sm: American freedoms are evaporating. Democrats have no respect for the First Amendment. Thanks for visiting sm.

anon: WE are cowards? Eric Holder can speak for himself. But Obama should tell him to shut up...Obama promised to create a post-racial America.

It really says something when Russia warns US about Socialism. It just goes to show you that Putin has a larger vested interest in the U.S. success than Obama does.

That is just incredible! I just said that a Russian leader thinks he has more to gain in our success than our own President! Good grief…what have we become…

I do think the Occupant in the White House is in over his head on certain issues, but I also think he knows exactly what he's doing by trying to ruin the economy. He's a commie through and through and wants to change this country into a third world country. We have to really keep our eyes and ears open concerning this fool and his minions(that includes his shrew of a wife as well). The sooner he is ousted, the sooner I will breathe easier.

Putin warning Obama that his so-called stimulus is too socialist? Unbelieveable!

Chicago Ray said...

Scalawag Obama's been pulling that race card a long time here in Illinois going back to his very first race against Bobby Rush years ago. It's been the only reliable card in his deck and he's made a living utilizing it.

Great post Klik as KGB Putin recognizes a socialist when he sees and smells one and Obama can be seen and smelled miles away with that NeoMarxist Chicago stink all over him.
