Let's Do That Again!

You know how kids will do something incredibly dangerous, to the point they (and any observers) think they're going to die?  And then when they survive the experience they usually crack up laughing and screaming and then say, "Let's do that again!"?  Parents everywhere are cringing, because they do know.  They also know it's their job to say, "No, I don't think so."

Well, it's time to correct the child in office again.  And we'd better do it quickly because his defenders in the media are already trying to spin it as "he didn't mean it that way."

In Pueblo, Colorado, President Obama gave a speech "villifying(sic) Mitt Romney for opposing the auto industry bailout."  In that speech he said:

"I said, I believe in American workers, I believe in this American industry, and now the American auto industry has come roaring back.  Now I want to do the same thing with manufacturing jobs, not just in the auto industry, but in every industry."  (emphasis added)

Let's break this down, and you'll see how ludicrous it is.

First off, if he believed in the auto industry, why did he interfere with the normal market operation?  If you believe in something, don't you allow it to operate?  Don't you only interfere if you don't believe that it's capable?

And what about "I want to do the same thing...?"  Well, what did he do?  He directly intervened in the bankruptcy proceedings of both GM and Chrysler with the effect that secured bond holders' legitimate claims were voided and the unsecured claims of the UAW and other Obama Donors were honored.  Just coincidentally, the UAW no basically controls both GM and Chrysler, the US Taxpayer is on the hook for millions of dollars that we'll never see again, and Barack Obama essentially appointed the current CEO of GM.  Just coincidentally.

And now he wants "to do the same thing with manufacturing jobs... in every industry."  I don't know how many more times the SCOAMT needs to say what he believes.  From "you didn't do that on your own," to "I think at some point you've made enough money," to (now) admitting he wants to de facto nationalize every manufacturing job in the nation, Barack Obama couldn't scream "I'm a Marxist!" any louder if he had sworn his oath of office on the Communist Manifesto.
