Rhetoric vs. Reality

So... Still feeling comfortable with your choice?

Is that sick feeling starting to break through yet?
Are you over your hopey-changey "Yes we did!" Kool-aid bender and starting to see what is actually going on?

You are now getting to see the difference between teleprompter-driven rhetoric and stockmarket-killing reality.

What Urkel Voters Expected

The contrast is no longer between the young, personable, historic candidate Urkel and a creaky, cranky old Republican White Guy; It's between what America thought it was getting in a President Urkel - cool, reasonable and beyond partisanship- and what it now sees as the reality of a President Urkel: Government spending out of control, escalation in Afghanistan, hiring lobbyists in his administration, clueless on foreign policy (insulting the UK, dialog with a "moderate" Taliban? Please. $900 Million to Hamas?), increasing broken campaign promises, rampant government growth, more and more and more bureaucrats, a growing list of non-income-tax taxes, and an inevitable slide into Socialism.
And do not get me fucking started on Holder and Gun Control.

What America Actually Ended Up With

I hope you Urkel voters/supporters are taking off your rose-colored glasses and are seeing that this is neither what you were promised, nor what you expected. And for those of us who were paying attention before the election, this is what exactly what we expected, and it's extremely annoying that we told you what was happening, and you just went right ahead and elected this Marxist fraud anyway...

Hey baby...It's not my fault... Bush broke it before he gave it to me...

Let me give you a little equation to work with:

President Urkel x time = stock market crash + ever-diminishing 401k & retirement accts

I hope you're fucking happy.

I am still happy with my choice. And by the way, my 401K lost most of its value by the time Obama took office. Something about deregulation in financial districts, China paying for our needless war in Iraq and the national debt going from 5.8 Tr. to 11 Tr. during the last administration. That sure is something I miss!

Yeah, Dude...
It started to free-fall just after the election, when the writing on the wall became plain.
(Not that it wouldn't have happened if McCain was elected... We were already fucked by the Democratic Congress.)
So... Just sharpen your pencil and dash off a Thank You card to Barney (The Banking Queen) Franks, Chris Dodd, Nancy Pelosi, and the rest of the tax-n-spenders... With a special thanks to Slick Willie and the Demo-craps who set the subprime mortgage disaster in motion back in the late '90s by deciding that everyone needed to buy a house...

How the Democrats Created the Financial Crisis: Kevin Hassett

"...Fannie and Freddie did this by becoming a key enabler of the mortgage crisis. They fueled Wall Street's efforts to securitize subprime loans by becoming the primary customer of all AAA-rated subprime-mortgage pools. In addition, they held an enormous portfolio of mortgages themselves.

In the times that Fannie and Freddie couldn't make the market, they became the market. Over the years, it added up to an enormous obligation. As of last June, Fannie alone owned or guaranteed more than $388 billion in high-risk mortgage investments. Their large presence created an environment within which even mortgage-backed securities assembled by others could find a ready home.

The problem was that the trillions of dollars in play were only low-risk investments if real estate prices continued to rise. Once they began to fall, the entire house of cards came down with them."

Keep drinking the Kool-Aid...
