Democrats Grow Impatient With Lack Of Action by Obama on the Economy

December 4, 2008

Democrats like Barney Frank, who is responsible for the economic crisis, are becoming impatient with president-elect Obama because the president-elect hasn’t been more assertive in regards to the economy and the taxpayer fucking known as the bailout.

 The man who is responsible for the economic crisis, Barney Frank, had this to say about Obama’s lack of action:

He’s going to have to be more assertive than he’s been

At a time of great crisis with mortgage foreclosures and autos, he says we only have one president at a time,” Frank said. “I’m afraid that overstates the number of presidents we have. He’s got to remedy that situation.”

 Here is where I have to defend Obama, this isn’t going to be easy for me but it has to be done. President-elect Obama has stated that he isn’t the president yet so he hasn’t asserted himself into the debate about the economy and the bailout to the extent that Barney Frank and others would like. As can be read in the above quote this has drawn the ire of liberals like Barney Frank.

 What the hell does Barney Frank think that Barack Obama can do to remedy that situation? President-elect Obama has no power to do anything other than to perhaps speak with the man who STILL IS THE PRESIDENT. What does he expect out of Obama? Here is what Obama recently said at a press conference:

“I think it’s premature to get into that issue,” Obama said at the conference

 He is right, of course it is premature to inject yourself into a debate that the current president is in. Once he takes the oath of office he can make his policies. Until then Barney Frank needs to learn the definition of the word patience.

 Barney Frank isn’t alone, enter Criss Dodd:

The Obama team has to step up

 And then there is Carl Levin:

It would be very helpful if the president-elect would become more involved in resolving the issue over the source of the funds,” he said. “I want him to offer his assistance. He is a person who can really bring people together.”

 Democrats are growing impatient with Obama for not wielding powers that he does not yet have. It is time for Democrats to relax, Obama will be the president, I promise. But I hate to inform you, he isn’t yet. He will be soon.

 As we head towards the holidays Christmas, the antics of these high profile Democrats remind me of children who just can’t wait for Christmas to arrive so that they can unwrap their shiny new toys. Please be patient Democrats, your new toy is under the tree, he just isn’t ready to be unwrapped yet. It isn’t Christmas yet. Obama is right when he says it isn’t his turn yet.

 Your time is coming soon, behave or you just might find (clean) coal in your stockings.

    The democrats are not the cause of the current mess, it began under Reagan and continued through the Bush Administration. The deregulation of the banking, securities and insurnace insustries pushed by the Republican “trickle down” absurd economic theory coupled with the dismantling of the laws put in place during the Great Depression are the main reasons for the current mess. Add to that the Bush fallacy of cutting taxes on the rich while funding an invasion and occupation on credit and boom, the ecomony explodes. Thes people have looted the country.

    You forgot to include the 8 Clinton years. And I’m sure that all the leftie Dems considered Obama the President on Nov 5. They must be getting real sick of hearing President-“elect” Obama! hahahaha!!!!

    Dear Political World, Please don’t forget that seven years of FDR resulted in a 14.5% unemployment rate in 1940, even after we had begun to rearm England and had started to update the US Military. Seems all those glorious work projects of Roosevelt’s failed to revitalize US industry. It did provide jobs and public works, but no economic growth. Of course, FDR did establish the social safety nets that now allows millions of Americans to be fourth generation welfare recipients.

    As to today’s incredibly over-hyped mess, don’t forget the Carter administration’s effort to help the poor get housing, the Clinton Administration’s effort to get loans to unqualified borrowers, and Barney Frank’s blocking of new regulations for the banking industry in 2005.

    Funny how he neglegted to mention the Clinton years.
    Political World, John McCain tried to get those regulations reinstituted as did my soon to be former senator John Sununu, but it was Barney Frank that said that there was nothing wrong with the current state of affairs. You can deny this little fact if you want to but it is true.
    Mustang makes many good points about Clinton and Frank. Two people who you neglected to give any blame.

    Your right why hasn’t Obama done something about the economy! Oh… Wait… He still isn’t president? …That functional retard… oh whats his name… Bush? Is still president? Hmm Seems like that might have something to do with it. Considering Obama doesn’t have any control over anything yet. This very well could have something to do with it. Nice job at jumping on Obama for not doing anything even though he’s still not president. That’s like blaming the person in a job interview for not fixing the company he’s applying for a job at.

    Interviewer: “It’s your fault this continues to happen!”
    Possible Employee: “Um… I don’t even work here yet…”

    Democrats = Surplus
    Republicans = Deficients

    I didn’t jump on Obama, I defended him. I quoted three Democrats who are upset that Obama hasn’t done anything yet and I defended Obama for not doing anything yet. How the hell can he do anything when he isn’t yet the president? You made the same point that I did.
    Perhaps you should write to Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, and Carl Levin, they are the ones who don’t realize that Barack Obama isn’t president yet.

    Hopefully, Obama won’t follw in Clinton’s footsteps and try to be Republican lite, a lot of Clinton’s policies were dictaed by the Republican Congress, and Clinton went along with a lot of foolish policies including allowing the Credit Default Swaps to be un-regulated which was the begining of this mess.
