The Treason Media is carrying the spin that the bailout vote failure is all the Stupid Party's fault and the Dems are just innocent widdle babies in this mess. Just as Dubya was inarticulate, so is McCain, as noted on the Corner:
I'm guessing McCain couldn't make the statement himself because he was working on his next speech on earmarks. (Instead of talking about that Dems-Raines-defense-hearings YouTube that has been going around, McCain attacked earmarks again today, at a rally at Capital University in Ohio.)Later, another Corner post had this sober note:
Just thought I’d send some thoughts from small-business America. My husband’s business is a canary in the coalmine. When tax policies are favorable to business, he hires more guys, buys more goods, etc. When he is taxed more heavily, he fires people, doesn’t buy anything new, etc. Well, duh. So, at the mere thought of a President Obama, he has paid off his debt, canceled new spending, and jotted a list of whom to “let go.”Sad? No, TRAGIC!
The first of the guys will get the news tomorrow. And these are not minimum-wage earners. These are “rich” guys, making between $200,000 and $250,000 a year.
My husband will make sure that we’re okay, money-wise, but he won’t give himself a paycheck that will just be sent to Washington. He’ll make sure that he’s not in “rich guy” tax territory. So, he will not spend his money, not show a profit, and scale his workforce down to the bare minimum.
Multiply this scenario across the country and you’ll see the Obama effect: unemployment, recession, etc. No business owner will vote for this man, but many a “middle-class worker” will vote himself out of a job. Sad the Republican can’t articulate this.
