It’s not nice for someone to feel good because someone else is suffering, is it? But that is exactly how I am feeling about our smug, arrogant, narcissistic president. If that makes me a bad person, so be it.
This miscreant who goes by the name of Barack Hussein Obama won the Presidency of the United States of America in a landslide victory in 2008. This was no surprise. Candidate Obama was offering people hope and change and the American people were desperate for change. Unfortunately, what the people had in mind and what Obama had in mind were light years apart.
From the day he was sworn into office, his attitude and that of his administration has been one of: In-your-face, America and In-your-face, Republicans. I, Barack Hussein Obama won. You all can sit in the back of the bus and keep your mouths shut. All we could do was watch as nearly a trillion dollars was misspent with no positive results for Americans who were waiting with hope for the promised change. Everything this president and his administration has done has had negative results. Did Obama see the error of his ways and change course. No. We the people spoke at the ballot boxes in 2010, did Obama listen and change course? No. And all the time, for the Left Stream Media (LSM), Obama and the Democrats could do no wrong. When the Fast and Furious scandal broke in the blogosphere and congressional hearings began exposing the details, did the LSM respond? We heard almost nothing from the LSM. But, in the last couple of weeks, something has changed.
At the end of August one of Obama’s pet green-energy-projects fizzled out. A company by the name of Solyndra filed for bankruptcy. This bankruptcy did get some attention from the LSM. The reason for the attention was that this private company had received from the Obama administration over a half a billion dollars in guaranteed loans and now the tax payers were on the hook. But hat wasn’t what interested the media. It was the information that leaked out that Obama had taken a special interest in the approval of this loan. It turns out that the principle investor, George Kaiser, is a big time fund-raiser for the Democrat Party and contributed $50,000 to Obama’s 2008 campaign. Not only that. It became known that Kaiser had made several visits to Capital Hill in the days preceding the loan approval. Congress announced that it would open an investigation into how this loan was handled. The media attention seemed to die away quickly and most of us assumed that this would be swept under the carpet in the same way the Fast and Furious case is being handled by the Obama administration.
Then last week, after weeks of hupala, Obama at a joint session of Congress announces his long awaited American Jobs Act. More of the same policies that have already been shown not to work. To my surprise, some in the LSM were less than enthusiastic about the President’s plan. Then on Monday of this week, comes the astounding news out of New York that political unknown, Bob Turner, a Republican no less, won the congressional seat vacated by Anthony Weiner. A seat that had been in Democrat hands for 88 years. This story, a direct slap in the face of Obama, was all over the LSM.
And now it seems the LSM has caught what I call “Solyndra Fever”. The LSM giant ,Washington Post, on Tuesday broke an exclusive story about some 2009 E-mails that were released to them that demonstrate the Obama knew that the Solyndra loan was high risk. This is definitely an article worth reading. Not to be out done, ABC News has also caught Solyndra Fever. Check out the video and the story. You might also want to take a look at this article by Michelle Malkin where she points out that Solyndra is not the only “green boondoggle” for our President.
So, finally Barack Hussein Obama, after nearly three years as an untouchable, is beginning to feel some heat from the LSM. I am not happy about all the Solyndra employees that lost their jobs. And, I am down right angry that we taxpayers are on the hook for $ 535 million. And, I would like an explanation as to why our government is granting loans to private companies. But I must admit that I am enjoying the picture in my mind of that smug face smeared with egg. I hope this Solyndra Fever scandal becomes the final undoing of Mr. Barack Hussein Obama.
Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?
