Enough!

It all looks glamourous and fun until we realize it's our kid's money. When do we say, "Enough!"
Putting an end to the illusions of his rivals and the speculation of a brokered convention, Mitt Romney won a decisive victory in Illinois yesterdy with more votes than Gingrich and Santorum combined. He is clearly going to be the nominee at this point and that reality was reflected in his victory speech. He only mentioned his rivals once and it was to congratulate them on a hard fought campaign. The rest of the speech was aimed squarely at his chief rival, President Barack Obama. He made his case against the President eloquently and with conviction stating, "it's time to say these words, this word: enough! We've had enough!"
Hot Dogs and March Madness Basketball for Two Leaders... $365k Dollars. Borrowing $146k of that from Red China... Unforgivable! 
This citizen could not agree more. We have had enough. We've had a belly full in fact. The President just doesn't seem to get what is going on out here in the real America. Either he doesn't get it or he doesn't care. He actually seems to flaunt his disregard for the average American plight weekly. While some deranged pundits like to begrudge Ann Romney two American made Cadillacs bought with their own money, the President is spending our money very conspicuously and few seem to care. Here's a taste of what we have had enough of.
  • Obama wants to cameo in HBO's Entourage, one of his many favorite TV shows. He's only POTUS for four years. Can't he catch up on his many TV shows later? If I don't have time to watch TV how can my president find the time? If he wants to be a real celebrity let's accommodate him this fall and send him packing to Hollywood. ENOUGH! 
  • It cost 'we the people' over $365k dollars for Britain's David Cameron and Barack Obama to catch a March Madness game and hot dog in Ohio. Since we borrow forty cents of every dollar we had to borrow $146k dollars of that from Red China. ENOUGH!
  • The President read a spy novel (again, I wish I had that kind of time on my hands) and sent it to Harvey Weinstein with a note saying, "Why don't you make this into a movie?" Not only does he have the time to read for fun, he also has the time to opine about making movies. If he would rather be a reader for Hollywood producers than why is he taking our money to not do the job we hired him to do. There are 24 million Americans out of work and no amount of spy movies is going to help us. ENOUGH! 
  • The White House has turned into Versailles. Even celebrities and the super rich were "wowed" at the State Dinner for David Cameron. "It's like Disneyland. You don't know what to expect next" said one on the many celebrities in attendance. We're in an economic crisis. Where's the moderation? A nice dinner and a photo opportunity is more than the people that paid for the event will ever get so it should be good enough for those meant to serve us. People are loosing their homes and the deficit has doubled into a full-fledged economic nightmare. ENOUGH!
  • Richard Branson was "wowed" by the State Dinner's opulence. When eccentric billionaires with their own space program are "wowed" with tax payers money you know you've gone too far. We little people bought Richard Branson the night of his life. ENOUGH!
  • When you are POTUS the entire country is your oyster. Why does the first family vacation overseas on our buck? What's wrong with Florida or Montana or Hawaii? When you disregard State Department travel warnings and send your daughter to Mexico for spring break with 25 secret service agents you are indeed abusing your privileges. If a citizen can't do it than your kids shouldn't be doing it. This is still a republic by and for the people. ENOUGH!
  • I am a college basketball fan but do we really need to convert a nuclear aircraft carrier into a basketball court? We had to borrow from the communist for that too. We're selling the fleet for b-ball! The President and Pamela Anderson sure enjoyed it. ENOUGH!
Cool? Yes! But is it worth borrowing our children's money to do it? NOPE
I could go on and on and on. This is just a little glimpse into the out of touch world that the President has been living in. We're taking it on the chin and he just doesn't seem to notice or care. Mitt Romney is right: "We've had enough!"

Not to mention the policy that is damaging the country. Enough of the anemic recovery. Blah!

It was a good speech. But that won't keep the ABRs from their back stabbing. No sir. In fact, I bet a lot of them vote for Obama.

People like to talk about gaffes, but the other day Santorum said that if he did not get the nomination, voters might as well stick with Obama...imagine the hysterics if Romney has said something like that.

gotta constantly ask if this spend is so important that it's worth borrowing money from china to make it happen? buying richard branson and warren buffet a lavish dinner would have to be a no.

I've never seen such a statement by Santorum. Please furnish a direct quote & source.

We are now officially living under the rule of a King in America. The Obamas are constantly flying around the world on super-extravagant vacations, partying it up every other night, and spending millions on expensive jewelry and other wasteful things.

While all this goes on, the media plays, "hush-hush" with the stories, focusing instead on knocking the GOP candidates' heads together every minute of every hour.

Then we've got our Conservative media who seem to have nothing better to do than bash the only person who is in position to take down the King - Mitt Romney.

Barack Obama has become no better than Hugo Chavez - a demagogic dictator. "YOU WILL EAT YOUR CAKE", he says, while I live the lifestyle I want.

The worst of it are the worshiping masses, who view this administration like they would view the Oscars or their nightly celebrity gossip television shows. They love their Emperor and his extravagant life-style. They get some sort of unhealthy satisfaction from witnessing someone else living what only they could dream of. A leader who would try to cut back save money only seems to depress them.

Someone I admire once said that you cannot easily "dethrone an iniquitous king...he has his friends in iniquity...and he teareth up the laws of those who have reigned in righteousness before him." I think we're quickly coming to that point in this country. We're to the point of no return.

Excellant post, and good homework on the list of "enoughs". Sad that it made me laugh, because it is not funny. But you gave me a lift today!

He continued, suggesting re-electing President Obama might carry less risk than if Romney wins the presidency, "If we are going to be a little different, we may as well stay with what we have instead of taking a risk in what may be the Etch A Sketch candidate for the future."

Terrye & Machtyn thank you. I see your issue here, but you need to put it into context. This is the same as the Romney gaffe about poor people & the safety net soundbyte sans context.

Th reporter here didn't have that quote in the video, so he added this to frame it up a bit:

"Santorum's speech came as part of a new effort to paint rival Mitt Romney as complicit in the creation of President Barack Obama's health care law, a measure that faces a challenge in the U.S. Supreme Court next week. The law's two year anniversary comes Friday, and Santorum's campaign said they would mark the occasion by launching a "campaign within a campaign" to link the law Romney passed as governor of Massachusetts to the nationwide law."

Sure enough, Obama responded with this:

“We designed a program that actually previously had support of Republicans, including the person who may end up being the Republican standard bearer and is now pretending like he came up with something different,” the president said.

The Massachusetts plan served as a model for the Affordable Care Act, signed two years ago Friday. Romney, the state’s former governor, has since said the legislation was the correct course for his state but not meant as a model for a national overhaul. But the plan has proved a focal point of criticism aimed at the GOP frontrunner.

In Thursday’s interview, Obama said Republican opposition to the plan, including the Supreme Court challenge, is politically motivated.

Until we can see the entire presser, this will have to suffice as far as the "If we are going to be a little different, we may as well stay with what we have instead of taking a risk in what may be the Etch A Sketch candidate for the future."

Publius, sorry that your thread was hi-jacked from your post. I wanted to add to your post with this example of Obama's Presidency entitled "What is President Obama so afraid of?"

I hope all take some time to read it:

Yes, I have had more than "enough."

I wonder where the Obamas will go to continue their lifestyle when China comes to collect? We'd better start learning Mandarin.

Still not a lot of context, but better than the CNN article

Machtyn said...

And here's the video. It's got even more context.

It really is Versailles! When will the people be crying for revolution? So many going without and so few living high on the hog with tax money. If it was there that would be one thing but it is our tax money! Crazy times.
