The question was, “What the hell are we paying you for?”
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie ripped President Obama for the failure of the debt supercommittee calling the president “a bystander in the Oval Office” in comments Monday.
“I was angry this weekend, listening to the spin coming out of the administration, about the failure of the supercommittee, and that the president knew it was doomed for failure, so he didn’t get involved. Well then what the hell are we paying you for?” Christie said in Camden, N.J. “It’s doomed for failure so I’m not getting involved? Well, what have you been doing, exactly?”
The answer should be obvious, Governor.
Creating the super-committee was a way for Obama to shift the blame to Congress – which in fact does deserve a massive share of the blame – and of avoiding responsibility for his own incompetence (or malevolent competence; take your pick) and lack of leadership.
Barack Obama is running for a second term so that he can continue to wage social warfare, run-up debt, and crash the country. It’s the rather basic Cloward-Piven shtick that he has absorbed and parroted his whole life, and indeed, was his job as a “community organizer.”
Don’t think for a minute that Obama’s idea of what is best for this country is anything like we’d recognize from Democratic or Republican candidates over the past century. Obama gives every indication he’s running a very thinly veiled communist, which is why he’s abandoning the white working class in order to focus his reelection chances on the would-be proletariat of the Occupy movement, university Marxists, minorities steeped in Black Liberation theology (hello again, Reverend Wright), and South American Marxism (hello, amnesty-hunting illegal aliens).
Barack Obama is the first Presidential candidate in the history of the Republic that is running a Presidency and a campaign designed to end American Exceptionalism and replace it with entitlement dullardism.
That so many Americans still think of Barack Obama as a good President, or even a decent man, speak to how far we have fallen as a nation.
