It’s hard to express just how outrageous it is to read Barack Obama saying we should thank him for “tax cuts” given the condition of the economy that continues to deteriorate under his alleged leadership.
An April 15 article by Sam Youngman in the Hill tells us Obama ‘amused’ by Tea Party rallies. How quaint that he is “amused” at the outrage of so many middle class taxpayers across the nation.
More outrageous is reading his words in the article, “they should be saying thank you” over some ghost tax cuts I am told we received. Looking at my 1040 I just filed, I don’t see any cuts and in fact, am paying more than I did during the years of Bush.
When it comes to being middle class, I don’t see many that could be more blue collar middle class than I am. In all my 40 plus years working, I’ve barely exceeded $40,000 only a couple times and that was during what we were told was the worst economy since the depression during the Bush years.
That anyone could think I should thank the poseur in chief just astonishes me as I was employed for 20 years at a Dodge dealership that was one of the 789 the Obama administration decided needed closed down in 2009. Needless to say, factory trained technicians were no longer needed without manufacturer backing or support and I joined the ranks of the unemployed for the first time in over 30 years.
At 61 years of age, job prospects are nil when living where the unemployment remains close to 15%.
Filling out my taxes this year, I saw that even between my wife and I, our combined incomes had dropped over $5,000, placing us closer to lower middle class in earnings than ever before.
Taking every legal deduction I am allowed, I owed the IRS just under $1,000 this year instead of receiving a couple hundred back as I usually did all through the Bush years.
Sorry, but I just don’t see anything to thank Obama for.
I’m sure that I am not the only one, seeing thousands of ordinary people outraged and standing up, attending Tea Parties and letting Obama and his Democratic Politburo know we are outraged and fed up with “Hope and Change” that is nothing more than smoke and mirrors.
Obama’s arrogance and narcissism is revealed in his even thinking anyone should thank him.
The country is more divided than it has ever been since the Civil War.
We have alienated long time allies by his indifference and social snubbing of their leaders.
The racist attitude and open hostility towards White Christians both he and his wife Michelle display have set back race relations a good 40 years in America.
The economy is approaching that of the great depression and Obama nationalizing industry and issuing “orders” from the White House to private business has only made it all worse.
And for this, we should be saying “thank you?”
What the hell for?
The only one who could possibly thank this poseur would be Jimmy Carter as he is now only the second worse president in American history.

So the president is amused by the tea party. Well he is actually making progress, because last year he had not heard of it or them..So congratulations, because in the spoon fed delusional world of self worship he lives in, he is actually allowing things to get through to the rather thick skull of arrogance and social superiority complex he suffers from. In any event, I am not amused by his willful destruction of the constitution, by the amount of debt he is creating, by the kickbacks to George Soros and friends. I am not amused that he uses air force one like a carnival ride, to impress his friends and win votes, that he gave the nukes up with nothing in return, that he announced oil drilling as a ploy in the year of 2017. I am not amused at the passage of health care, nor am I amused about cap and trade. I am not amused about his relationship with Bill Ayers. I am not amused with Nancy Pelosi, or Harry Reid, or Barney Frank, or Chris Dodd or any of his self appointed czars. I am not amused about his arrogance, and his disrespectful view of a group of people he represents. I am not amused by his treatment of Benjamin Netanyahu, and I surely am not amused by his conversion of a free society into a government and union controlled nanny state. So, in conclusion, Barrack, you go right ahead and be amused. In fact, laugh, mock, and poke fun of all you want. But in conclusion, it is your lack of greatness, inspiration, vision, clarity, purpose, and hope for the genius of a free society to succeed because of their own individual efforts that has actually allowed the tea party to exist. In fact be amused because the tea party has had the courage to stand for all the things you do not, including but not limited to fiscal conservatism. They are willing to pay the price for believing in our Country and her people, not as a group event dictated to by the likes of you, but because of their own individual sense of self worth, self respect, and individual pride. I would hope you understand this, but really do not expect you to, because these are not your own words to be worshipped... I was not able to attend a tea party yesterday, but my heart and hope is with their success. I love that part of a free society...
