It's What Happens When Washington is in the Business of Manufacturing a Crisis After Crisis Thing

Dear America,

now imagine this president operating without a care in the world if whether or not he gets re-elected...

which, hello...will happen if this guy gets...re-elected.

you know what's funny -- the proverbial THEY are enacting a new narrative to call this a Tea Party Victory.

Sorry.  That couldn't be further from the truth (that is, if anyone even cares about the disseminating truth any longer).  To call this a win for the average Tea Party Enthusiast would be a reach, at best -- an abomination of character, at worse.  THIS is NOT what the Tea's had in mind, you can be sure.

The good news on the day happens to be one of mixed blessings:  the first being, we've seen congressmen masquerading as statesmen (going on for years now). With their latest debut, displaying an unconscionable willingness to let politics direct their every move.  IF there was ever a question about that before, we have an answer in the here and day after.

So with this wanton ambivalence to simply doing the right thing leading the way -- resting decision making more on appearances than upon substance... even if that decision leaves America in harm's way, vulnerable to insolvency and a government in rampant overreach -- we, the people, can come away with the real win.

We know what to do (again).

We vote the bums out.

So with that, the Tea Party might just say thanks for the help...to which a Reid, a Pelosi, a McConnell, a Boehner might just respond with -- being totally oblivious to the underlining sarcasm -- sure, no problem, anytime, call me.

SO the president just spoke in the Rose Garden.  It appeared to be just a beautiful afternoon, the sun was shining, the birds were chirping, as he stood there at the podium all smug, pleased with his kingdom, no less.

He basically said, now that that's done, now that we have averted a crisis, it is time for the next phase --- beginning with his promise to his base by attacking the rich to make them pay.   He also said that when congress comes back, he shall expect congress to take steps to "do more."

In politico speak, that means...another stimulus, extending tax cuts to the middle class, extending unemployment, patent reform, finishing trade deals that were initiated years ago, and setting up an  Infrastructure Banking system to increase number of loans made available for private companies to rebuild bridges, repair roads, fix sinkholes, and the like.

Surprisingly, he made a stark admission in the middle of his remarks; so hold up, while I go fetch a transcript to pull from it...(cue the elevator music).

here it is:
"That’s part of the reason that people are so frustrated with what’s been going on in this town.  In the last few months, the economy has already had to absorb an earthquake in Japan, the economic headwinds coming from Europe, the Arab Spring and the [rise] in oil prices — all of which have been very challenging for the recovery.  But these are things we couldn’t control.  Our economy didn’t need Washington to come along with a manufactured crisis to make things worse.  That was in our hands."

seriously? it just doesn't get any better than that.  (for the entire transcript, go here)

Like any first step of recovery, Mr. President, admitting the truth becomes the legal tender worth it's weight in gold...however, no telling what inflation will do.

So, call me silly, but this girl would love to know just who, in Washington, do you believe is to blame for the latest spree of innovation,  manufacturing a crisis...

could it be YOU?  what with that carrying on about "not guaranteeing Social Security checks" -- or the administration holding the Armageddon rhetoric to a heightened level, hitting the twenty month peak (kinda like the consumer spending exhibiting it's first decline since September 2009, only, of course, in reverse)? While even though the so-called "debt ceiling" is as a matter of record, MANUFACTURED, out of thin by the masterminds of government in the first place -- hard to tell when this factory opened for business.

Oh, oh, I get it...because the Tea Party Freshmen considered themselves accountable, as the keepers of the coffers (OF THE PEOPLE'S MONEY) you're inclined to point there -- while to you...all this idiotic finagling over dollars and cents, balanced budgets and cuts... to spend, or not to spend, that is the question -- was simply pure sideshow.

They annoyed you, didn't they? 
c'mon, you can tell me...
oh to be a pesky fly on your arm over the next few days.

Well consider this day, a time when you can dot your I's and enjoy passage of another monumental travesty of our nation's limited government; but also know, that the T's -- the true T's -- are crossed.

This manufacturing of a crisis, the MO of choice for you, and right out of Alinsky's Rules for Radicals, is now documented for all of history.  Your mom must be so proud.

and may you also take comfort knowing that you're right...

didn't need 
to come along 
with a manufactured crisis 
to make things worse."

Make it a Good Day, G

and just imagine four more of this...and then some...unleashed and spending with free abandon...without a care in the world to do the right thing...just sprinkling his rosy rose petals all over the place.

Oh, and by the way -- whatever it is we accomplished today in Washington, the MARKET seems not too pleased.   It is dropping as we speak -- down a couple hundred points.
