That’s Right Nate

Thoughts from a right thinker.

The Obama Recession

with 28 comments

There has been some amazing reporting over the past day and it all points to one thing.  The cause of the recession that currently is afflicting our economy is none other than Barack Obama.  Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh have brilliantly pointed out that what has actually killed the economy are Obama’s ideas.  As Limbaugh says, “ This is an Obama recession.  Might turn into a depression.  He hasn’t done anything yet but his ideas are killing the economy.  His ideas are killing Wall Street. “ I shudder to think of what Obama will do when he has actual power.

You see, the recession began a year ago when Obama started his run for the White House.  His ideas were so scary that people immediately pulled their money out of the stock market and stopped paying their mortgages.  Its just a shame that after 8 years of model government the Bush administration gets blamed for the recession that Obama caused.  If you want real irony–it is the recession that he caused that got him elected.

The problem is there are a large number of other problems that Obama has caused that have all been blamed on his predecessors as well.  We never hear much about how Obama has destabilized the middle east, or heightened tensions with Russia, or how Obama has caused global warming if there is global warming.  We need to hold Obama responsible not only for the problems he will cause in his Presidency, but also for those problems he has already caused.

Limbaugh points out that Putin is going to take direct control of Russia again now that he knows Obama is going to be leading our country.  Putin retired in the first place because he was always scared of Bush’s ability to see his soul.  I wouldn’t be surprised to see if the United States’ relationship with Iran turns nasty too.  If Obama isn’t stopped it is hard to say what will be left of this once great country by the time he takes over in January.  I know I am waiting anxiously for a steady Republican hand to return to this country’s tiller.

  1. Obama is also causing global warming, restless leg syndrome, and California wild fires. We may not make it to January 20.

  2. Don’t forget that it’s definitely Obama’s fault that the Cubs choked this year. All he had to do was take off that 20 year old Sox hat and change it for some billy goat ears.

    Seriously though, don’t you think it’s not coincidence that the Cubs choke just about the time the Sox are having a “black out”?

    I think not.

  3. Obama choked the Cubs? Damn him…

  4. Excuse me, but the northsiders did not choke this year. In fact, they had the very best record in baseball for a team that played with only nine players the way Jesus intended. Obama is responsible for the cancellation of “Lipstick Jungle” and a whole lot of other problems, but there is no problem with Chicago’s elite baseball franchise. Not one thing.

  5. Stock investors are very well read and analyze all the factors. The NY stock exchange has never crashed like this right after election day. It’s even worse than when Jimmy Carter beat Gerald Ford.

    Which group knows more about economics: MBA investors or Macy’s retail sales, “Sex in the City” fans?

  6. Oh I know. If there’s one thing this past year has taught me, it has to be the genius of Wall Street investors. What’s weird is the way that they were able to analyze that Obama would win and pull out all of that money on Black Monday September 15th despite the fact that Obama was trailing McCain in the polls at that time and McCain riding on a powerful post-convention bounce. Still, those investors knew that soon McCain would make a major gaffe like pronouncing the fundamentals of the economy as strong because they were strong until Obama was leading him which happenned because of McCain’s gaffe. The logic here is perfectly clear. I just wish that people hadn’t stopped paying their mortgages when they heard Obama would be running. Thanks for posting here Mick. It is great to have a fellow conservative who knows what’s going on here.

  7. September 15th News

    Rasmussen Reports Monday, September 15, 2008
    “The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows John McCain attracting 49% of the vote while Barack Obama earns 47%.

    This is the fourth straight day that McCain has been at 49% or above. Prior to this recent stretch, the Republican nominee had not topped 48% on any day since Obama wrapped up the Democratic Presidential Nomination in early June.

    Prior to the conventions, the tracking poll consistently showed a very close race–occasionally tied, but with Obama typically ahead by a point or two. For the past week, the race has remained very close but with a slight advantage for McCain. However, 17% of voters say they’re either uncommitted or could change their mind between now and Election Day. This suggests that the debates, which begin a week from Friday, could be especially important this year.

    Forty-three percent (43%) of voters are certain they will vote for McCain and not change their mind. Forty percent (40%) say the same about Obama.” -Rasmussen

    NEW YORK ( — Stocks tanked Monday, amid the largest financial crisis in years after Lehman Brothers filed for the biggest bankruptcy in history, Bank of America said it would buy Merrill Lynch and AIG slumped on fears that it can’t raise cash.

    Treasury prices rallied as investors sought the comparative safety of government debt, sending the corresponding yields lower. Oil prices tumbled, falling well below $100 a barrel on slowing global economic growth. The dollar rallied versus the euro and gold prices spiked.

    The Dow Jones industrial average (INDU) lost 504 points, or 4.4%. It was the biggest one-day decline for the Dow on a point basis since Sept. 17, 2001, when the market reopened for trading after having been closed in the aftermath of 9/11 terrorist attacks. On a percentage basis, it was the biggest decline since July 19, 2002.

    The Standard & Poor’s 500 (SPX) index lost 4.7%, its worst day since Sept. 17, 2001, when it plunged 4.9%. The S&P 500 also closed at its lowest point since Oct. 27, 2005.

    The Nasdaq composite (COMP) lost 3.6%, its worst single-session percentage decline since March 24, 2003. It left the tech-fueled average at its lowest point since March 17 of this year.

  8. What the hell are you talking about? Who are the cubs? I thought you had gotten over baseball after Cuba has beat the American team so many times…
    Lipstick Jungle was canceled?! Is that right? Steve, your gender is showing…


    November 14, 2008 at 11:34 am

  9. Brooke Shields is a beautiful woman and a Catholic!


    November 14, 2008 at 12:45 pm

  10. Yeah right, Steve! And you’re the only straight male in the world who watched Lipstick Jungle!
    (I had some suspicions about your gender when I noticed you couldn’t spell Budweiser. Now I know for sure!).


    November 14, 2008 at 6:29 pm

  11. Oh, be serious Lola. nate is a much worse speller than I am and he’s the Bud (light, with lime) man. I am more into Zima.


    November 15, 2008 at 1:58 am

  12. Nate’s spelling is atrocious, but he never got his beer wrong! If you’re a woman, why not simply admit it? What’s wrong with being a woman in this day and age? Hmmm…. Maybe I should rephrase this.


    November 15, 2008 at 6:08 am

  13. Silly Lola, if I was a woman I wouldn’t have any serious views on politics!


    November 15, 2008 at 8:18 am

  14. oh yeah, steve? what about sarah palin? what about her? huh? can’t hear you …


    November 15, 2008 at 8:32 am

  15. She is more than a mere woman. She is a Madonna. Did you know she had five children, including a special needs baby, and still managed to campaign for the second most powerful office in the land? Madonnas don’t need political views!


    November 15, 2008 at 8:40 am

  16. i admit i’m no expert on papistry, but that smells like heresy to me, steve. you should be aware that your church has been clamping down lately on what its followers say and do (“SC priest: No communion for Obama supporters”), so you might want to ditch the palin/madonna comparisons.


    November 15, 2008 at 9:04 am

  17. Madonnas not needing political views is extremely consistent with the infalible pronouncements of the Holy Father. I voted McCain/Madonna I may certainly receive tomorrow. As may my wife (Nate’s sister) and our eight children — except for Nicholas who is not old enough to receive. First you and Lola question my manhood, then you question my faith. It is very clear that these are revenge smears because I expressed concerns over your improper infatuations with Nate. What sore losers you liebrals are.


    November 15, 2008 at 9:48 am

  18. i haven’t previously questioned your manhood, but your protestations are beginning to make me wonder.

    are you calling me the l-word?! i can’t imagine what justification you think you have for that accusation, other than my admitted infatuation with that yummy televised forbidden fruit, the luscious keith olbermann.

    i have nothing but respect for nate as a political theorist and commentator of the first order.


    November 15, 2008 at 10:10 am

  19. Well, see that you keep that way. Lola is turning into quote the brazen trollop. I know she’s Spanish, and I understand multiculturalism, it’s in her blood to be hypersexual, but that’s not the kind of woman Nate needs.


    November 15, 2008 at 10:13 am

  20. Did I just catch a Freudian slip there, Steve? Gina hasn’t questioned your manhood! She hasn’t even mentioned your strange infatuation with Lipstick Jungle!
    As for my being hypersexual… at my age?! I hate to break it to you, Steve, but when you get to be my age, and after 18 years of monogamous, heterosexual marriage, there’s not a drop of anything sexual left in me. I thought I was the Anti-Christ because of the day I was born, but now I’m beginning to believe I’m a Madonna. Too bad you’re a man, or you could be one too later on in your life.


    November 15, 2008 at 10:35 am

  21. I do not have a strange infatuation with Lipstick Jungle. Brooke Shields is a very attractive Catholic. Do I have a strange infatuation with Braveheart because Mel Gibson is a very attractive Catholic? Do I not have a strange infatuation with John McCain because he is not attractive and not Catholic. You girls aren’t making any sense.


    November 15, 2008 at 10:45 am

  22. Lola, thank you for reaffirming my decision to limit myself to women under 29. I’m watching For Your Eyes Only now and it seems to be working quite well for Roger Moore.

    Gina – that link was disgusting pornography. That dog was licking himself. They should have at least given him some kind of doggie shorts before filming.


    November 15, 2008 at 10:47 am

  23. Maybe the cause for not being hypersexual any longer has less to do with one’s age and more with monogamy. The mormons sure know what they’re doing! No, wait! As a woman I wouldn’t have a harem even if I were a mormon. So I guess the problem is my gender?
    Good thing you’re a man, Steve! Although… first Lipstick Jungle, now Mel Gibson moonlighting in Braveheart? I now have doubts about your sexual orientation as well.
    Gina, I loved the link and I didn’t find it pornographic, but you could see those dogs were catholic.


    November 15, 2008 at 12:45 pm

  24. nate, i’m sorry about the puppy porn. animals can be so – animalistic. speaking of doggie shorts, i’d be happy to chip in for a pair for steve to wear at his computer. maybe then he wouldn’t think SEXXX!!! every time a female posts; apparently you’re either a palin-madonna or you’re a whore. (although the last time i checked, sarah’s husband was named todd, not godd.)
    oh well, typical catholic i guess.


    November 15, 2008 at 1:16 pm

  25. Sticks and stones may break my bones, but the Holy Father will never hurt me.


    November 15, 2008 at 4:51 pm

  26. I laughed for about half a minute over this line:

    If you want real irony–it is the recession that he caused that got him elected.

    I don’t even know what to say.


    November 15, 2008 at 10:28 pm

  27. Shannon, you laughed for half a minute over a line? Nate has this effect on us, though he’s dead serious, of course.


    November 16, 2008 at 11:52 am

  28. Right, of course. I don’t know what made me laugh so long. Easily amused?
