Are We Stupid Enough to Reelect Obama?
If this guy gets four more years, there’s nothing stopping him. The fact is that he won’t have to get reelected. There won’t be any games of extending the Bush tax cuts, for example. There won’t be any health care waivers. There won’t be any delaying the onslaught of the massive increase in the size, reach, and scope of government. There’s a reason Obamacare doesn’t fully implement ’til 2014. If it fully implemented by now, no Democrat would be reelected in November. That’s why this is important. That’s why so many people are pulling their hair out over the Republican primary and demanding — hoping, praying — for a genuine conservative. That’s why people are willing to overlook some of the baggage, because the people that do get it, Pete, like you, understand what’s at stake here.
People that don’t yet understand it, ’cause they’re too clueless, in a fog, wandering around… I know what you’re wondering: How can people get up every day and be happy? How can people get up every day and laugh with what’s happening in the country. I know. You turn on your television and you watch a sporting event or you watch a television show, whatever it is, and you wonder: “How come these people don’t get it? How can these people not understand what’s going on?” You expect there to be, expressed by everybody, an awareness that we are in trouble. And when you don’t see it, you scratch your head and ask, “What are these dummkopfs not seeing?” I know exactly how you feel. It’s what we’re trying to change here.
We’re all in the same boat together at the same time. In 2013, no more nice Obama.
Another thing: About the airlines. I left something out that’s very important and I shoulda said it. This is on top of the list in terms of reasons. The unfunded pension plans that they are responsible for, they’re talking $10 billion to $50 billion in underfunded pensions, if you look industry-wide. I’ll guarantee you… I can’t say this conclusively without looking it up and confirming it. But my wild guess would be that of the airlines year-to-year that do well, they’re either not union, or a very small percentage of the workforce is union. And the airlines that are in huge, big trouble owe money years and years and years in the future to retired employees who aren’t going to be productive. And it’s choking ’em. That would be probably at the top of the list, to answer the question.
