Obama Is Puropsley Trying To Raise Unemplolment Levels To Stay In Power

Remember that one skit On Saturday Night Live where Tina Fey actually used a line from the interview between Sarah Palin and Katie Couric about the economy; where in that one moment, the comedy basically wrote itself? This is one of those moments where any decent comedian couldn't mke this shit up, even if he tried. Here's Representative Pete Sessions (R-Texas) talking to the Times on why the ecomomy still sucks.

His counterpart at the House Republicans’ committee, Representative Pete Sessions of Texas, may indeed face an uphill fight with his argument that Mr. Obama is not trying to create jobs. In an interview, Mr. Sessions cited rising unemployment in asserting that the administration intended to “diminish employment and diminish stock prices” as part of a “divide and conquer” strategy to consolidate power.

Mr. Sessions, in his seventh term, said Mr. Obama’s agenda was “intended to inflict damage and hardship on the free enterprise system, if not to kill it.” By next fall, he predicted, voters may regain appreciation for the era of Republican governance when “many dreams were achieved,” the size of the economy doubled and employment and financial markets hit record levels.

Polls offer little evidence that Americans are prepared to accept those arguments. But voters anxious about the economy do tend to blame the party in power.

Its way to easy (and lazy IMO) to just simply dismiss Representative Sessions as a fucking retard from a state that's full of dumb honkeys who continually vote aganst their own best interests, becasue I don't beleive he's this dense(willfully ignorant that his party's platform of deregualtion and handing out tax breaks to the richest 1% of Americans with the idea that the wealth will 'trickle down' to the general population is what got President Obama elected in the first place? You betcha!). Remember who he's pandering to: the 21% who buy this kind of 'Obama is a power-hungry socialist!' rhetoric.
