The open question is just how bleeding stupid is BO, a/k/a Barack Obama. It is hard to say. However there appears to be an unlimited depth to BO’s sheer stupidity. Mike Allen and Jonathan Martin, Politico , reports on what BO purports to be an “economic stimulus plan.”
ENERGY: “[W]e will launch a massive effort to make public buildings more energy-efficient. Our government now pays the highest energy bill in the world. We need to change that. We need to upgrade our federal buildings by replacing old heating systems and installing efficient light bulbs. That won’t just save you, the American taxpayer, billions of dollars each year. It will put people back to
A smaller government would require less space, fewer building, use less energy and save the taxpayers’ money. Don’t put a bandage on inefficient government. Eliminate it.
ROADS AND BRIDGES: “[W]e will create millions of jobs by making the single largest new investment in our national infrastructure since the creation of the federal highway system in the 1950s. We’ll invest your precious tax dollars in new and smarter ways, and we’ll set a simple rule – use it or lose it. If a state doesn’t act quickly to invest in roads and bridges in their communities, they’ll lose the money
Earth to Obama, cone in please. One have you ever heard of environmental protection laws. Infrastructure must get environmental approval before construction. Two, you can not create a any job by taking a dollar from one person, the taxpayer, to give to another, a card carrying member of a construction union which supported your campaign.
SCHOOLS: “[M]y economic recovery plan will launch the most sweeping effort to modernize and upgrade school buildings that this country has ever seen. We will repair broken schools, make them energy-efficient, and put new computers in our classrooms. Because to help our children compete in a 21st century economy, we need to send them to 21st century schools.”
Bull! If Johnny can’t read, Johnny doesn’t need to surf. Teach reading before allowing Internet access.
ELECTRONIC MEDICAL RECORDS: “In addition to connecting our libraries and schools to the Internet, we must also ensure that our hospitals are connected to each other through the Internet. That is why the economic recovery plan I’m proposing will help modernize our health care system – and that won’t just save jobs, it will save lives. We will make sure that every doctor’s office and hospital in this country is using cutting edge technology and electronic medical records so that we can cut red tape, prevent medical mistakes, and help save billions of dollars
Yeah I am sure if we put our private medical records on line, the government will protect our privacy just like it protected Joe the Plumber’s privacy.
Call Barack Obama what you will, just don’t call him smart.
