“In less than three weeks in office, Obama has collected more than $550,000 in back taxes just from cabinet appointments.” – Gov. Mark Sanford
None of us are entirely sure what he has planned for 2012, but Mark Sanford sure is getting his name out there. The South Carolina Governor has been the most out spoken critic for the crap sandwich some people call stimulus, and is being attacked accordingly just like everyone else who dissent against Dear Leader.
Attacks have ranged from basic partisan bickering to insinuations of racism, and now the Democrat National Committee is getting involved…
“Mark Sanford is putting his personal ambition ahead of the people of South Carolina by cow-towing to the Rush Limbaugh-led, obstructionist wing of the Republican Party,” said Democratic National Committee Communications Director Brad Woodhouse. “Now is not the time to politicize these practical steps to create jobs in South Carolina and across the country. Governor Sanford should stop playing politics and work with leaders from both parties who want to use the economic recovery funds to help create jobs, fix our schools, reform our health care system, make America energy independent, and lay the foundation for long-term growth in the 21st Century.”
1. Those of us critical of the crap sandwich doubt that it will actually create jobs, fix our schools, reform our health care, and or make American energy independent. Those of us critical of the crap sandwich think that $1.5 TRILLION is too much to risk it “because Obama says so,” and favoured a more targeted stimulus that might actually do all this things.
2. Capt. Ed makes the point, “He wants to use a quarter of South Carolina’s stimulus money to pay down the state’s debt and is seeking a waiver from Obama to do so.” I fail to see how that’s irresponsible.
3. I don’t think it’s fair to automatically question people’s motives, and questioning Sanford that he’s doing this “playing politics” isn’t fair to the Governor. He has a flawless record of fiscal conservatism and honestly believes he’s doing what is in the best interests of the people of his state.
Now, if you want to question motives, I would point out that because President Obama is no different that President Bush and signs executive orders when no one is paying attention, signed one saying that all the “shovel ready” projects have to go to unions. That makes 3.5 million jobs into 3.5 million paycheck for union bosses to take money out of, pocket some for themselves, and kick some back to the Democrat Party in the way of campaign contributions and PAC money. And all this on your tax dollars that we have to borrow from the Chinese in the first place.
So if we’re gonna question motives…I’m just sayin’.
