Was George W. Bush the “Barak Obama” of the Republican Party?

When it comes to spending, no president has set about spending more than our current resident of the White House, Barak Hussein Obama. In his first sixty days in office, Obama spent more than every president from George Washington to George W. combined. But who, was the number one money spender among the Republican presidents? George Walker Bush.

Far from being a fiscal conservative Republicans expected, Bush went on a spending spree that shocked most Republicans. Republicans in the House and Senate went along with him because he was “Our Guy”, but it was the Democrats that went on an 8 year long “Hate Bush” campaign funded by communist billionaire, George Soros.

Democrat politicians and Hollywood celebrities would get in front of media cameras and declare that Bush is stupid, dumb, Illegitimate, he should be impeached, hung, shot, imprisoned, lynched and he just has no idea what he’s doing. (Those were the Nice things they said). Meanwhile the Republicans were saying in private that he’s spending like a Democrat and he doesn’t know what he’s doing. (And those were the nice things They said.) When it comes to spending, George Bush was the Barak Obama of the Republican party.

During his eight years in office, President Bush oversaw a large increase in government spending. In fact, he increased government spending more than any of the six presidents preceding him, including LBJ. In his last term in office, President Bush increased discretionary outlays by an estimated 48.6 percent. Also during his eight years in office, Bush spent almost twice as much as his predecessor, Bill Clinton. Adjusted for inflation, in eight years, President Clinton increased the federal budget by 11 percent. In eight years, President Bush increased it by a whopping 104 percent.

David Axelrod, an Obama strategist, argued that George W. Bush is responsible for Barack Obama’s deficits. He argued that Bush forced the hand of this administration by leaving office in the midst of a sharp recession. That argument won’t fly for two reasons. First, at some point this administration has to take responsibility for it’s own actions. It’s also not even close to accurate. Consider that from Jan. 20, 2001, to Jan. 20, 2009, the debt held by the public grew $3 trillion under Bush—From $3.3 trillion to 6.3 trillion at a time when the national economy grew as well.

By comparison, from the day Obama took office to the end of the current fiscal year, according to the Office of Management and Budget, the debt held by the public grew by $3.3 trillion. In 20 months, Barak Obama added as much debt as George Bush ran up in eight years. Obama’s spending plan, approved by Congress last February calls for doubling the national debt in five years and nearly tripling it in 10.

From The Congressional Budget Office

The Obama administration has been on history’s biggest spending spree, which has included a $787 billion stimulus, a $30 billion expansion of a child health-care program, and a $410 billion federal spending bill that increased nondefense discretionary spending 10% for the last half of fiscal year 2009. Then he hiked nondefense discretionary spending another 12% for fiscal year 2010. Add on H.R. 1745, Family Health Care Accessibility Act of 2010 and the numbers are out of sight.

Whoever you point your finger at for the responsibility of America’s financial situation, it is clear that past 10 years, 8 with Bush and the past 2 with Obama, the spending has been unprecidented. As bad as it has been so far, it is scheduled to be much worse in the next 2 to 6 years with Obama alone. Be assured however, that if Obama wins the office for a second term, he will still be trying to blame Bush for anything that goes wrong.

Egypt And America

Egypt And America

The US gives Mubarak $1.5 Billion per year and his most loyal supporters are only armed with rocks… Where is the money?
So… The democrat youth of Egypt, egged on by the Islamic Brotherhood, rioted for 18 days and demanded the autocratic rule of President Hosni Mubarak end, that he step down and a civilian style government be installed. Mubarak finally did step down and the military is in charge. The cabinet, parliament and congress are now also kicked out and the constitution is suspended as the revolutionary rioters demanded.

Among other things, It seems that the people had no freedom to address their grievances against the government which we in America are promised in the First Amendment of our U.S. Constitution. They have been unable to speak out against an oppressive regime which would crush resistance and punish those who disagreed with official policy. Many protesters were beaten by police in the beginning of the revolution, but many of the police later stripped off their uniforms and joined the rioters. (Would you want to be a policeman in Egypt for $85 – $100 per month?)

President Obama told President Mubarak that he should step down.

Women swooned at his words

I see parallels between Egypt and the U.S. when I look at our current situation in America. We have an oppressive ruler over a regime which crushes any opposition. Businesses and banks have been seized, Free Enterprise has been declared “the enemy”. He doesn’t use the police and the military force, instead he uses his dogs in the media to assassinate his enemies, just like he learned in the book,”Rules For Radicals” by Neo-Marxist and Satanist, Saul Alinsky. (A man every leader should emulate?)

America was not set up this way. The leaders were meant to be servants of the people. The people are meant to be citizens, not subjects of the throne.
We fought a revolution before to make sure of that.

At the beginning of this country, there was heavy taxation without representation. Today, we have the same thing… heavy and ever increasing taxation by an arrogant ruler who’s only desire is a Marxist state of equal poverty for all but a handful of elites.

If enough American Citizens get angry enough and riot in the streets of D.C. demanding that the arrogant ruler step down, do you think Obama would step down? Instead of suspending the Constitution, could we re-institute the Constitution Obama and his minions have tried to undermine from day one? Would the Police and the Military join with the citizens in revolt since the regime’s actions effect them as well?

Of course, I would never advocate such a thing… but is something to think about.

A Little Extra:

Many people know by now that Alinsky had a dedication to Lucifer on the earlier copies of his book Rules for Radicals that went as such:

“Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the
very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins — or
which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against
the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer”

and…

“Obama learned his lesson well. I am proud to see that my father’s model for organizing is being applied successfully beyond local community organizing to affect the Democratic campaign in 2008. It is a fine tribute to Saul Alinsky as we approach his 100th birthday.” — Letter from L. DAVID ALINSKY, son of Neo-Marxist Saul Alinsky

PS:

Obama helped fund ‘Alinsky Academy’: “The Woods Fund, a nonprofit on which Obama served as paid director from 1999 to December 2002, provided startup funding and later capital to the Midwest Academy…. Obama sat on the Woods Fund board alongside William Ayers, founder of the Weathermen Underground domestic terrorist organization…. ‘Midwest describes itself as ‘one of the nation’s oldest and best-known schools for community organizations, citizen organizations and individuals committed to progressive social change.’… Midwest teaches Alinsky tactics of community organizing.”

Take it for what it’s worth. If you doubt anything I have written here, hit your Google and check it out.
