Heh! Obama Says He’ll Get The Economy “Going Full Guns”

At a $40,000 a head fundraiser Monday night (weird how the Occupiers weren’t outside protesting) Obama said

(Politico) “I’m confident that we are running a good campaign” and will continue to do so, but Democrats are “being outspent substantially,” he told 60 donors, who gave $40,000 each. Though Obama said he doesn’t anticipate being able to match them dollar-for-dollar, “we’re going to have to continue to compete … make sure that we can get our message out effectively.”

What the Politico, and most media reports, left out was (via Weasel Zippers)

(Washington Examiner) The president said today that his positive campaigning in the fall would explain how he’ll get the economy “going full guns” in his second term.

“There is going to be . . . the need for voters in these swing states to know not just what they’re voting against but also what they’re voting for,” he said. “And so we’ll be spending a lot of time talking about the specific agenda that I intend to pursue in the second term – which I think will make sure that this economy is going full guns.”

Obama’s had 3 1/2 years to get the economy “going full guns” (rather violent discourse, eh?). He got everything he wanted during his first two years, as he had a Democrat controlled Congress. He got his Stimulus, his son of Stimulus, his health destruction bill, Dodd-Frank, creation of the Consumer Protection agency, his massive spending, his “green” energy investments, giving a large chunk of General Motors over to the unions…..and none of it worked. His big ideas for the economy right now are written on a sticky note, and not even the Democrat controlled Senate is willing to take them up.

What makes him think his tired and busted ideas, which have failed every time they are tried both domestically and internationally, will work? The man lives in a fantasy world.
