H/T to Conservatives on Fire and Bunkerville
In the old movie ‘cliffhanger’ serials, each week’s installment ended with the hero in a life or death situation from which there was apparently no possible escape. That seems to be the situation the country finds itself in as we veer toward national default. Obama and the socialists want more spending and more taxes; responsible citizens do not. And now House Speaker Boehner’s done talking–at least to the President. In a letter to his colleagues, he explains why:
[…] It became evident that the White House is simply not serious about ending the spending binge that is destroying jobs and endangering our children’s future.
A deal was never reached, and was never really close.
In the end, we couldn’t connect. Not because of different personalities, but because of different visions for our country.”
Under normal circumstances, whenever I hear a politician refer to “our children”, I lock my doors and hide my wallet in my underwear; but when the Speaker’s adversary happens to be the biggest spendthrift in the history of the Republic, it’s not only our own progeny we should be worrying about, it’s all Americans yet to come. By his actions in office and his own autobiographical admission, Barack Obama is at the very least sympathetic to the aims of Marxism. And a Marxist does not want to strengthen a capitalist economy–he wants to destroy it.
