Careful What you Say . . .

In 1994, David Axelrod, President Obama’s chief campaign strategist, called former President George H.W. Bush “out of touch” for “tastelessly” playing golf while trying to convince voters that the economy was improving.  “Bush tastelessly did it, often from the ninth hole, and from the cigar boat and other places,” Axelrod said, "The impression you got was that he was out of touch."

Now, 18 years later, on June 17, 2012, President Obama completed  his 100th round of golf since becoming President.  He also has now infamously declared, "The private sector is doing fine."  The economy continues to founder.

What do we hear from Mr. Axelrod?  NOTHING!! 

That, ladies and gentlemen, is called hypocrisy.

Rich, the comment said this, most lost jobs are in the municipal part of the work force, state, city,town, teachers, fire and police and the like, but the private sector is doing fine holing the line and ading some workers to the employment field. Please don't blow smoke.

I am not blowing smoke. President Obama's comment is exceedingly important, but not for the reasons you think or assert.

His comments show that he believes that growth of government and increased governmental spending is the key to getting out of a recession. He is Keynesian in his thinking which is dangerous.

No country has ever spent its way out of a recession. The theory does not work. Yet, the President's comment proves that this is what he intends to do.

He must be defeated at the polls.
