No one likes a serial whiner


Once again, I can't claim credit for this title; it's a line from an excellent article I read this morning by Victor Davis Hanson over at NRO. Hansen was specifically referring to our current president's continued rant about everything being our former president's fault - but it's been a year now. Isn't anything his to claim?

Former president Busch accumulated a $500 billion deficit - obviously not a good thing. A quick look over at the U.S National Debt Clock and you can find that
our current national debt comes in today at $12,338,087,324,148. The deficit for fiscal year 2009 (which ended September 30) came in at a record $1.42 trillion, more than triple the record set just last year, equal to 9.9% of the gross domestic product (GDP), and the highest since the end of WWII. It seems that the more the current administration borrows, prints, and spends, the higher our unemployment rises and the lower our economic activity plummets.

I guess the fact that Scott Brown claimed the Senate seat of the late and long-serving Senator Edward M. Kennedy says that I'm not the only one tired of the whining.

Of course there are those who say that Brown's win has nothing to do with Obama's whining. They say it's about national security. Eric Fehrnstrom, one of Brown's top strategists, said that "from our own internal polling, the more potent issue here in Massachusetts was terrorism and the treatment of enemy combatants.”

What do you think about Scott Brown claiming Kennedy's former senate seat? What do you think the impact will be for passage of the healthcare reform bill? Do you think it will have an effect on O'bama's re-election?

I'll bet Obama's supporters have long faces today from Washington DC, all the way to the continent of his birth. HA!

I'm just praying that honest not corrupt politicians will lead this nation. Just so tired of empty promises while a lot of people are suffering. No more ranting. Start WORKING!!! God bless.

Obama's not the only one guilty of that, brings to mind a friend who constantly whines too..inspite of all her rational ability she just cannot make an effort to stop and realize what she's doing.
Whining is like staying in the same spot,round/round and not getting on with living...

Youre right Denise. I heard a fervent African-American preacher on the radio not long ago. He said..

"Jesus is coming back. And when He does, He's not taking sides, He's taking OVER!"

I thought that so appropriate.

I think that the people must act hand in hand with the government for the citizens to experience a good country.

The polls here in MA show that 56% of Brown supporters, for which I was one, were against a health care bill that did not cover all Americans, did not go into effect immediately, raises taxes, cut Medicare, had back room deals and bribes for votes.

The other 44% were about National Security and trials for terrorists as well as jobs.

There is something wrong when the hope of change has not substance and the hope of peace gets a prestigious award.

People are looking for “real,” “hard working,” and honest. My nephew was seriously wounded in Iraq to protect our freedom (and oil). I don’t agree with Scott Brown on every issue, but if there is a transparent process for health care, an increased effort to stop terrorist attacks on American soil for which there have been 3 since Obama took office, then I am for it.

The Spendulus package created a few thousand government jobs and saved a few thousand more. We have got to stop spending!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Even the TEA Party folks backed Brown because Martha Coakley is a Tax and spend Democrat. They are 12% of the voter population.

I am for whoever can come close to these political objectives and get elected.

Christians need to articulate their beliefs, and come together to achieve their political goals and glorify Jesus.
