The British elections are suddenly about immigration. Great Briton is part of the European Union, so anybody anywhere in the EU has the right to move to Briton and work there. Unemployment in England is high. College graduates cannot find a job, and what jobs there are, are significant portion of the British think should go to the native born British people! Can you imagine such racist prejudice?
Boy oh boy, Obama could really straighten them out! The Messiah should send some of our May Day Immigration protestors to London.
The elite do not get it.
Immigration is about jobs and the deficit.
The PIGS are Portugal, Greece, Ireland and Spain, all of which have out of control spending, exploding deficits, and rapidly falling bond ratings. In other words, the PIGS are living the Obama dream of Change.
Spain followed the Obama Green Jobs blueprint. The Spanish government ran all kinds of publicity about all the Green Jobs Spain was creating, including the marijuana-smoking fantasy that for every carbon based job they lost, two new Green Jobs blossomed on the plain. You know, like in the Julie Andrews musical “The Rain in Spain falls mainly on the Plain!”
Ooops, turns out the Spanish government was lost in a musical marijuana fantasy. It turns out that the New Green Spain has now crossed 20% unemployment, heading in the wrong direction.
Is this the Green Jobs model that Obama has in mind for the US?
Obama believe there is no need for a Green Card to get Green Jobs in the US. Obama sees enough imaginary new green jobs for everybody in the world if they would just walk in to Phoenix, Arizona and vote the straight Democratic Party line ticket. Never mind that even our corrupted Department of Labor reports 9.6% unemployment, or 19.6% if you include electrical engineers flipping burgers at White Castle.
Spain, of course, was the victim of a train bombing by Al Qaeda just before their Presidential election. The new government got the message and withdrew Spanish troops from Iraq so Al Qaeda would not bomb them again.
That freed up the attention of the Spanish government to focus on Man Made Global Warming and creating a new economy rejecting carbon based business and focusing on Green Jobs, following the model Obama proposes for America with his Cap and Trade carbon taxes and wasteful, economy destroying subsidies for Green Technologies that simply are not economically feasible.
The Spanish version of Green Jobs is 20% unemployment. Oh, is that close to the 19.6% in the US?
Spain, of course, is racing towards more complete Socialism, and the Spanish deficit is in a competition with unemployment to see which can increase more quickly.
Greece, of course, is Spain on steroids but without the Green Jobs. The Greek Army joined the protestors over cuts in government spending.
The Greek government is not trying to balance the budget. No, no, Nannette. Greece is far too Socialist to entertain such an idea. Greece is merely trying to reduce the deficit enough so Germany will loan them more money to be immediately paid out as social justice and redistribution of wealth.
Unfortunately, Greece has run out of wealth to redistribute, so now social justice can only be achieved by borrowing money from Germany. The German’s have not yet figured out that the loans will never be repaid. Or have they?
Is this a case of one Socialist government wafting its head in a marijuana cloud of disbelief , in total rejection of reality, vaguely hoping that miracles will happen and Obama will create such a wealth of new Green Jobs in “Yes We Can America” that the US taxpayer will bail them all out?
But the US can only borrow enough from China and Japan to cover the Bush deficit. America has no idea where the money will come from to cover the Obama deficit, which makes the Bush deficit look like a minnow.
Let me understand this.
Obama gives his priority to appearing on TV. Even after the “contentious” White House meeting, Obama’s response is not to work on the solution, but instead to race around appearing on all the Thursday night talk shows, telling everyone how a President must be able to do more than one thing at a time.
Still worse, Obama says we should be bipartisan, and then spends all the rest of every interview being purely partisan.
Apparently Obama believes that this crisis is not the most important event in America for half a century or longer. Or maybe, Obama believes there is nothing he can do to help. We must defer to his judgement on that, since he knows best on what he cannot do. Seems like a child trying to avoid doing his homework because he doesn’t know how.
Actually, we want someone who can do one thing right, and that is to save our economy. That is more important than appearing on TV, whether it is Thursday night when everyone else is working to fix the crisis but Obama is on the talk shows, or when Obama is busy rehearsing for th Friday night debate and McCain is busy working on the legislation.
Does anyone see a difference in personal goals and priorities here?
One candidate puts country first, the other puts his campaign first.
Obama, you have never done anything in your life except write your memoirs, twice, and all you said in the hundreds of pages of memoirs is “Eek, I am black!” What a genius.
We do not need a President who is so busy multi-tasking his TV appearances that he fails to notice how serious is the crisis, and fails to take the time to work on the solution.
America needs a President who can do at least one thing right.
