Obama is tanking the economy on purpose. First of all, to believe this you would have to believe that Obama was inaugurated in December 2007 when the recession began. Second, if Obama's plan is to "diminish stock prices," as Pete Sessions claims, he's doing a terrible job, since the stock market has increased since Inauguration Day. They should call him incompetent for THAT!
Then there's the part where a sustained struggling economy would mean the end of Obama's political career, since we have, um, elections every four years, and he will not outlast a recession that deep.
But none of this matters to conservatives. Because it's all logical. I am concerned about a prolonged recession, but I wouldn't attribute that to some black-helicopter theory about enslaving the white race. Because I'm sane.
You know this is a new meme, by the way, because the leader of the Republican Party is pushing it.
LIMBAUGH: As the economy performs worse than expected, the deficit for the 2010 budget year beginning in October will worsen by $87 billion to $1.3 trillion. The deterioration reflects lower tax revenues and higher costs for bank failures, unemployment benefits and food stamps. But in the Oval Office of the White House none of this is a problem. This is the objective. The objective is unemployment. The objective is more food stamp benefits. The objective is more unemployment benefits. The objective is an expanding welfare state. And the objective is to take the nation’s wealth and return to it to the nation’s quote, “rightful owners.” Think reparations. Think forced reparations here if you want to understand what actually is going on.
Reparations? Always the fear of blacks with these people.
