Still Shoveling

If it's true that a sucker is born every minute, Barack Obama is not only the "man of the hour," he's quite possibly either the biggest sucker...or biggest con-artist...of the century.

How else to explain his recent admission that "there's no such thing as a shovel-ready project," after spending nearly a
trillion taxpayer dollars on these figments of his imagination?

While disappointed to admit that investing in non-existent shovel-ready jobs was perhaps the
most expensive financial blunder in history, the president has a number of solid fallback plans with which to bolster the U.S. economy.

He's directed Michelle Obama and "those fat kids" to plant money trees in the Whitehouse garden... Obamacare dental clinics are collecting teeth to put under the president's pillow for the tooth fairy... and a nationwide search is taking place for geese which lay golden eggs (although there's concern that members of the president's party may immediately kill them to get the "gold inside.")

And as for the $800 billion spent on shovels, well...they'll soon be used to bury the political careers of a
lot of Democrats.

Keep shoveling; it will take 11,407,945 years.

Barry has been shoveling since he began running for president. How sad that America bought what he was shoveling...even though we could see it was soft and steamy. Now we are up to our necks in it and for many, finally, the stench is inescapable.

Anyone else remember how we were promised that he'd post bills on-line for 5 days before signing them so we could all have a good look-see? Then "porkulus" came along, and it was just so important that the country couldn't afford to wait another 5 days for the magic to start.

Of course, that was all we needed to know about it right there; any exposure to sunlight at all would have killed it right there. "Porkulus" was nothing more than a trillion-dollar bag of give-aways that have been stored up since the Democrats lost their monopoly on Congress in '94.

You know how people say the only people that do not like Obama, do not like him because they are racist....

Well I will make the bold statement that anyone who STILL likes him, and STILL thinks he is doing a "good job" RACIST. Meaning....they only support him for his color.... and yes, that is RACISM.

I guess, too, there's still a handful of people who say they like him only because they hate republicans more than they hate Obama's horrible policies.

Suzy - let's not forget that a number of people like him because they actually believe his communistic policies will usher in a Brave New Utopia, of some kind... Never mind that it's never happened before, never mind that when you penalize success and reward indolence and mediocrity you get (SHOCKA!) LESS success, and MORE indolence and mediocrity...

Suzy and Pete- At this point, we'd have to agree that there is no rational basis for people to like Obama's policies...but then again, the far left has always traded on emotions more than logic, and there's no reason to expect that to change anytime soon.

Suzy...I agree totally...most Obama supporters are completely racist!

The politically correctness in this country is getting sickening! Did you see Joy and Whoopi walk out on O'Reilly on 'the view'? Arent the libs the ones who want all this 'dialogue'? But when faced with a couple of facts, heyyyy the dialogue is over....and they resort to personal attacks or just do what those girls did....just walk away! too funny and pathetic!

When politicians use the phrase "Shovel Ready" I start looking for the manure pile.
