As Darrell Issa tries to bring down Obama again today, Obama’s actual, real record is speaking volumes on its own, and it’s not saying scandal or failure. It’s saying resounding success.
On this Republican black Thursday, we’ve gotten news that stocks hit record highs and ObamaCare is cutting costs by more than 50% for individuals who are buying their own insurance. Not a good day to be a Republican.
Buoyant stocks, drops in jobless claims – and all of this without the help of Republicans. All of this, actually, in spite of Republicans best efforts to bring down the country as punishment for electing the Democrat.
It was just seven days ago that the Obama economy shattered records with a huge budget surplus in June. So what we have here is a Democratic president whose economic and financial record is that of a fiscally responsible President, what some might label a “fiscal conservative”, only a real one- one who pays for programs he enacts and doesn’t just borrow like a drunken frat boy from the taxpayers — not a stingy, greedy, selfish, irresponsible “fiscal conservative”.
See, when you’re careful with your money, and you pay for things instead of playing shell games with “credit” and “debt” you pretend doesn’t exist, that same sense of responsibility not only allows but informs compassionate policies.
Obama knows when to use our gains for the betterment of those more vulnerable than us. Obama knows that we have a moral responsibility to care for the vulnerable in society and that when we look out after one another, we are a stronger and better country. When we try to live up to our promises to our veterans and our children and care for our elderly, we are a better country. Not only because that’s democracy, but because that is what a truly successful country looks like.
And this is why Republicans only want to talk about the fictional monster under their beds instead of the real record of the actual President. Benghazi! IRS! This is why Darrell Issa is wasting taxpayer money again today, trying to scare up an anti-Obama drama from the dusty confines of his single basket of goodies.
