“Call me, baby!”
David Letterman, formerly funny years ago, has been fundamentally transformed into nothing more than an Obama “hope and change” sycophant, often repeating the regime’s talking points like a programmed robot.Letterman showed his slobbering love affair with Obama and his unpopular policies, mixed in with a hefty dose of complete ignorance this week as both Obama and the Democrat Party’s un-American anti-freedom agenda was thoroughly rejected on Tuesday.With his tongue firmly planted in cheek, Letterman attempted to put lipstick on the regime’s horrific record, hoping his crowd of fellow useful idiots would swallow his nonsense.
“This is what happens when we have the midterm elections. The Republicans , of course, have turned against Obama, and the Democrats have also turned against Obama. That’s a lonely, lonely gig being president, ladies and gentlemen,” Letterman said, attempting to gin up sympathy for his master.
“Take a look at this,” Letterman continued. “Gas under $3 a gallon …under $3 a gallon. Unemployment under 6%, whoever thought? Stock market breaking records every day. No wonder the guy is so unpopular,” he joked.
There are three little problems with Letterman’s three-point analysis.
1) When Obama took office, the price of a gallon of gas in America was $1.89 per gallon, although Letterman’s audience probably doesn’t remember this.
It’s like Obama bragging that the annual deficit has been cut in half after he tripled it. Bush’s worse (still terrible, but nill compared to Obama) deficit was $459 billion in 2008. Obama tripled it to $1.5 trillion. Now that the annual deficit has declined to around $700 billion from Obama’s skyrocketing peak, the regime claims that as a victory.
Obama’s tyrannical EPA has done everything within and not within its power to stifle America’s energy renaissance.
Prior to his first election, Obama gave an interview in which he said he wanted energy prices to “necessarily skyrocket” under his energy policy. In 2011, the Obama Energy Secretary Chu said that he wanted European-style gas prices of $7 to $9 per gallon in America.
The recent gas price decline is in spite of Obama, not because of him and his cabal of warmists. Based on his own words and those of his regime’s, he’s very disappointed with the recent decline.
2) Anyone with an ounce of intelligence and awareness realizes that the only reason the unemployment rate has fallen to below 6% is because of the millions who have left the work force and are no longer included in the calculation.
There are an all-time record number of Americans not in the work force: 92 million. There are more people dependent on government than any time in American history. These inconvenient truths are not signs of an improving economy, and it doesn’t even go to the quality of the jobs that Obama has supposedly “created.”
3) Of course Wall Street is at an all-time high, David, which benefits you and your ultra-rich Obama crony friends in Hollywood just fine.
When the Federal Reserve Bank prints free, unbacked money in record amounts out of thin air, and gives it to Wall Street, this is what you get: an inflated stock market.
If this were a Republican administration, Letterman and his progressive ilk would be playing the Marxist class warfare card, saying that the president only cares about the one-percenters, and ask “Who’s looking out for the little guy?”
Under almost six years of the Obama Regime, average incomes have declined, while prices have climbed, and statistics show that minorities and women, two of the Democrats favorite pandering targets, have been harmed the most.
Letterman should stick with comedy and stop sucking up to Obama. He should leave his personal leftist political leanings out of his commentary.
It’s not funny.
At least Jay Leno had the cojones to bash virtually all major political figures, including the untouchable Obama, and didn’t wear his liberal politics on his shirt sleeve like a hack.
