What is it about conservatives? Do we always want to lose? We have the best ideas so why can’t conservatives step up to the plate and fight when it is time to fight? Why is it conservatives always think they are showing up for debate club when it is time to show up for fight club?
We are in the worst economy since the Great Depression. When the Republicans last controlled, the House, Senate and the White House, unemployment was at 4.6%. Now it is at 8.2%, if you believe the White House, which has the same credibility as the National Enquirer.
We keep hearing this bovine scatology from the Obama Regime about the jobs they have saved and jobs created. All that is in reality is a good case of what lawyers call “MSU.”
Makin’ stuff up.
What we have here is the Great Obama Depression.
If unemployment figures were calculated the way they were back in the days of the First Great Depression, unemployment would be at 14 or 15%. There would be massive rallies in the streets demanding that Obama resign.
Instead the Obama Regime cooks the books.
A few months ago, Debbie Wasserman Schultz said the Democrats would own the economy.
In the words of Star Trek’s Captain Jean Luc Picard, “Make it so.”
We need to stand up and fight and we can simply do that by making them own the economy. The left is very good at messaging. Messaging really is not that hard when you have a good message and we do.
We need to start referring to this economic disaster, not as a downturn or a recession. We need to start calling it what it is: The Great Obama Depression.
If you call into a talk show, call it the Great Obama Depression. On your Facebook page, talk about the Great Obama Depression. If you write a letter to the editor, use the term the Great Obama Depression.
Tell your friends to start using that term. We can make the Democrats own this economic disaster. We must make them own it.
The drive by media is going to give Obama a pass. We cannot.
In 1976, Gerald Ford was running for reelection. He made his Détente with the Soviet Union a centerpiece of his campaign. Ronald Reagan seized upon that and used messaging to make Détente synonymous with surrender. Before the primary campaign was over, Ford had ordered his campaign not to mention Détente at all.
We can do the same thing. This one is even easier.
This is the Great Obama Depression. Everything he has done has been to extend the Great Obama Depression and make it worse.
Mitt Romney and the GOP leadership will not call this the Great Obama Depression. As they do too often, they are showing up for debate club while Obama and the Democrats are showing up for fight club.
But this is the first time Republicans will have to run with the Tea Party and we don’t take orders very well.
Republicans have this strange idea that if they go out and fight with Marques of Queensberry rules against the Democrats who fight like street fighters, some how they will win points for politeness and style and prevail on that basis.
During the War for Independence, the British complained that Americans would not stand out in a line and fight like the Europeans fought. Instead we used guerilla tactics, which destroyed the British Army. We would not fight by their rules. Why the Republicans insist on fighting this war using rules that favor the Party of Treason is simply a mystery.
Let’s go out there and remind everyone, this is the Great Obama Depression.
Not anymore, Juls! 4th time was a charm.
Most, if not ALL, TEA Party supporters have roundly and loudly criticized RINO-led republicrats for their spending when Bush was president with majorities in the House and Senate. HOWEVER, go back and SEE how many democrats voted FOR every penny of that absurd spending.
Democrats regained majority control of the House and Senate in January of 2007 ... 5.5 years ago. Bush didn't veto democrat majority absurd spending AND Obama has never vetoed INSANE spending when he retained majority in both chambers of congress.
RINO's are awful ... but progressive-demoncrats are EVIL.
Lastly, it was Bush and his administration who WARNED that "Freddie & Fannie" were exposing the economy to great risk and every attempt they made to reorm them was FILIBUSTERED by democrats.
Mittens Romney thinks he can remain above the fray and act Presidential. Dirty fighters love people like Mittens. They love to sneak up and sucker punch a rube and eat his lunch while he bleeds out on the ground.
You are going into a knock down, drag out, bar room, back alley brawl Mittens. You'd better take off the Mittens and put on some brass knuckles. You are going to need them.
Americans don't want a namby pamby, country club president with his sweater tied around his shoulders.Americans want somebody who can duke it out with these low life Lemmocrats. Act like you got a pair, Romney.
GET OUT AND VOTE, YOU LAZY COUCH TATERS. IT'S TIME TO FIGHT.
FIRST, I think we should be using the real unemployment figure which could be anywhere from 15+% ro 22 or 25, depending on how you average it out across the U.S.
At the same time, we should be telling the Federal Government to get their figures straight.
Be sure that whoever comes up with the statistics, you must document them well and sources. Cut off any argument.
Then hit the oil industry for true figures.
Tell all about Obozo EO wanting to take over natural gas.
Matter o'fact; why not analyze all his EOs and tell it like it is.
I will start with his first EO where he modified the records act for Presidential Records.
Executive Order 13489 – Presidential Records
The law Obama thought he was modifying to protect his pre election records is not covered because they are not managed by the Archivist: (look this up - Archivist records are protected - not college transcripts)
Specifically exempt 2201-7:
(B) does not include any documentary materials that are
(i) official records of an agency (as defined in section 552 (e)  of title 5, United States Code);
(ii) personal records;
(iii) stocks of publications and stationery; or
(iv) extra copies of documents produced only for convenience of reference, when such copies are clearly so identified.
(3) The term “personal records” means all documentary materials, or any reasonably segregable portion therof, of a purely private or nonpublic character which do not relate to or have an effect upon the carrying out of the constitutional, statutory, or other official or ceremonial duties of the President. Such term includes—
Basically, he can only protect records which are derived from his tenure immediately preceding swearing in, and while he was in Office.
His birth records are not protected. They are state records.
The Hawaii Governor and other Government Officials of Hawaii have committed a fraudulent crime against the people of Hawaii. We need to impeach Pelos, Reid, the Gov of Hawaii, and any other individual blocking the truth. They are all criminals.
Don't like the acronym formed by 'Great Obama Depression' (GOD). Maybe it could be 'Obama's Great Depression'? Or 'Obama's Devastating Depression' (ODD)?
The acronym should be UH! "Up his"
Much Better [:>)
Judson, what I love about this messaging is that it isn't "fighting dirty" at all.
We're just pointing out the obvious. He failed to do what he promised to do.
I'll say again that we can't fight dirty. Every day we see the Democratic party living by the motto, "The end justifies the means." You can't embrace that philosophy on special occasions. If you use it, you believe it. The corruption we see in both parties is directly attributable to that Machiavellian philosophy.
Obama promised us all that socialism would "pull our economy out of the ditch." He made it very clear that there would be no "reaching across the aisle," or even listening to the American public. And he failed to improve anything.
Obama bought this economy when he was elected to fix it. Make him own it!! This IS Obama's Great Depression!
I would add:
Let's call them what they are.
Liberal is a vague / inaccurate term. Progressive is another perfectly good term that they have bastardized and ruined.
We should identify them for what they are; which is more accurately and precisely --- as Socialists or Marxists.
This would get the self-proclaimed "liberal" lemming, who is generally self-unaware, to do some critical thinking about themselves and Socialist / Marxist v/s Freedom-loving American.
