Evidently, representative Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) wasn’t too busy answering her cell phone during Town Halls this past Friday, but instead had the time (and the nerve) to play the race card yet again, strongly suggesting that race-obsessed Barack (“My-Grandmother-Is-A-Typical-White-Person”) Obama’s skin color is what’s actually to blame in this meaningless debt-ceiling fight:
From Real Clear Politics:
Jackson Lee, a black Congresswoman, believes the disagreement over raising the debt ceiling is because of President Obama’s race.
“I am particularly sensitive to the fact that only this president, only this president, only this one has received the kind attacks and disagreements and inability to work. Only this one,” Jackson Lee said on the House floor this afternoon.
“Read between the lines.”
“What is different about this president that should put him in a position that he should not receive the same kind of respectful treatment of when it is necessary to raise the debt limit in order to pay our bills, something required by both statute and the 14th amendment?”
In related news, the following clip is a video flashback that took place not long after Barack Obama took office, a mere two and a half years ago. In this clip, Barack Obama informs us that he will be a “one-term president” if he and his economically illiterate administration haven’t turned the economy around in three years. Of course, being a neo-Marxist Keynesian himself, what he didn’t realize then, and ostensibly still does not know now, is that you can never spend your way out of a recession or depression — Say’s Law forbid it — that Keynesian economics are one of the great frauds perpetrated onto humankind; that those same economics policies he and his clownish administration have pursued will destroy America; and that real wealth can only come from production, which freedom facilitates. Watch:
No pressure, but only six months to go. Can you do it, Barack? Can you engineer an entire complex economy through massive government intervention and bureaucratic control?
