Green Greed and Voracious Consumption


The O-bumas’ greed and voraciousness are mindful of the king and queen in the nursery rhyme “Sing a Song of Sixpence.”  When not enjoying expensive vacations or collecting contributions to his re-election counting house, he hides on golf courses ignoring the burial of some of our most elite soldiers.  O-buma pleads; can't you see I'm on vacation?  The job of president is not merely outside his comfort zone, it's above Obama's pay grade. 

Mrs. Obama, the czaress of healthy eating, has been traversing the globe scarfing up high-dollar, high fat, high-calorie foods, the sort that she wants denied to commoners.  They are a perfect pair.  He is an arrogant, aloof, feckless caricature of an American leader.  She is an expensive, high-maintenance, tagalong for whom nothing is too good as long as taxpayers are paying for it.

Barack thinks that hobnobbing with progressive elites gave him a pedigree-by-association entitling him to trifle with vital national affairs that are well beyond his ken.  He boasted that he would create millions of green jobs; however, even his comrades at the New York Times recognize that his green jobs scheme is a pipe dream.

The Brookings Institution reports that in California, green jobs have actually been lost, not gained.  A year ago, Seattle, WA, received a $20 million grant to insulate homes.  The plan was to reduce energy consumption and to create entry-level jobs.  So far, they have insulated three homes and created 14 jobs, many of them administrative.  In Oak Park, Michigan, a government-funded hybrid bus company is out of business two years after being touted as part of Michigan’s green future.

Little wonder that the O-bumites' green stimulus failed miserably.  Eighty percent of the $2 billion set aside in the ‘stimulus’ package for green jobs is going overseas, mostly to China.  Much of the rest went to crony capitalists like GE.  We borrowed billions for O-buma to enjoy quixotically tilting at climate change windmills.

While the king is obtuse, the queen is obnoxiously wanton.  Shortly before heading to Martha’s Vineyard for a lavish vacation, Michelle and her daughter went off to Spain to enjoy some conspicuous consumerism.  Her I-dare-you-to-say-something excuse for [the $375,000] excursion was that it was a ‘private mother-daughter’ trip with 40 close friends and a taxpayer-funded security detail of 68 requiring 30 rooms in Spain's most exclusive hotel. 

Tossing around mother-daughter rhetoric as though her daughters were going to Spain to spend one-on-one time with mommy was tasteless.  Using her children as human shields to deflect criticism is déclassé, even for an Obama.  Apparently, Shelly and Barry feel that luxuriating at the expense of working people is some form of reparations.

He is an abject failure, having failed by his own standards.  The Obama administration…said if his stimulus package was passed unemployment would not exceed 8 percent…Obama who joked there weren’t as many “shovel-ready” jobs as he thought…[He] promised to cut the deficit in half.  Obama…promised us recovery and prosperity, hope and change.  One must wonder: is he that naive, or did he simply lie? 

O-buma is a self-absorbed despot who is bankrupting the country in order to bask in the glory of progressive media’s adoration.  Michelle is an avariciously unsophisticated glutton feasting with both hands on the fruits of others’ labors.  We need leaders; they are liabilities.

May your gods be with you.
