Stupid is as Stupid Does

In Jackasses, left wing lunacy, Obama on September 9, 2010 at 5:40 pm

After spending nearly a trillion dollars in stimulus, bank bailouts, home owner bailouts, auto industry bailouts, police, firemen, and teacher bailouts, Hollywood bailouts, and a whole lot of nonsense like this, the US economy continues to flatline.  So what does Obama want to do now?  Spend another $50 billion on infrastructure projects.

Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results might be insane, it is also really stupid.  What’s worse, Obama knows that it is stupid.  Back in November of 2009, Obama said, “…if we keep on adding to the debt, even in the midst of a recovery, that at some point, uh, people could lose confidence in the US economy in a way that can actually lead to a double dip recession.”

After adding more to the National Debt in the first 19 months of his Presidency than all Presidents from Washington to Reagan combined, with no perceivable benefit, and doing himself and the Democrat brand a great deal of harm in the process, what is the logic of doing more of the same?

Because they are Democrats.  Democrats are statists.  They are all about government.  In their view, government is the solution.  While admitting that government got us into this mess, it would never, ever occur to them that government is in fact, the problem, and that the best course of action would be for government to get out of the way.
