Behind The Smokescreen

Judson Phillips has a good take on the government shutdown.
Tea Party Nation has the story.

Pay no attention to the Obama smoke screen


Posted by Judson Phillips on October 6, 2013 at 9:20am in Tea Party Nation Forum

The stories about how the Obama Regime and Harry Reid’s shutdown are coming almost faster than we can deal with them.

The Regime has closed the World War 2 Memorial. They closed the Iwo Jima Memorial. They closed Mount Rushmore and the scenic overpass that allows people to look at it. They closed privately owned businesses on Federal thoroughfares. Today there is even a story of how the feds threw a family out of a house they own that sits on Federal Property. The Obama Regime has even tried to close part of the ocean.

Conservatives have reacted with outrage. Liberals, especially the liberal media, have tried to ignore these stories. From a messaging point of view, these stories are horrible.

Why would the Obama Regime be so tone deaf? Could it be there is something else going on?

Today is the sixth day of the Harry Reid government shutdown.

The world has not stopped turning. The Obama Regime is causing as much pain as it can. It is refusing to negotiate with Republicans and not allowing the funding of the National Institutes of Health while giving half a billion dollars to the left wing corporation for public broadcasting.

The biggest danger the Democrats faced from a prolonged shutdown was the realization many Americans would have that much of government is simply a giant waste. Government is bloated with employees who do little more than collect a paycheck. They do nothing to advance any mission of the government.

Barack Obama, Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer may be evil but they are not stupid. Serial killer Ted Bundy was evil but he was not stupid either. They know exactly what they are doing.

By shutting down popular attractions, many of which they did not have the authority to shut down, they knew they would create attention and anger from conservatives. If you look at social media, this is what conservatives are talking about. This is almost all conservatives are talking about.

How many Facebook memes have we seen about the old World War II vets storming their memorials or the vets running down the barricades in front of the Iwo Jima Memorial?

If conservatives are going to win the battle of the government, one of the things we have to make Americans understand is that our government is riddled with waste, fraud and abuse.

By focusing on the outrage the Obama Regime is creating by closing oceans, memorials, privately owned businesses and kicking people out of their homes, the Obama Regime is ensuring that the most important story of the shutdown goes unnoticed.

That story is how little government we really need for our daily lives. The story is how much government exists that we do not need and how much we can get rid of.

The possibility of this narrative getting out has always been the big risk of the shutdown for the Obama Regime and the Party of Treason. By screaming every time Obama does something like that, we are letting him play the Wizard of Oz.

“Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!”

If we needed any other proof of the attitude of Imperiosity, this shutdown is it. If we needed further proof of the immaturity and infantile behaviour behind the actions of this potus, as well as proof of his narcissism, we need look no further than his current actions, as well as what he has chosen to fund.

Maybe we need to email / write Boehner and encourage him to stand strong, and don’t crumble.  Maybe send him a copy of this post???

Blatant disrespct and dishonor for the nation he supposedly “leads”.

    The three main functions of the government are: 1. Secure the Border; 2. Deliver the Mail; 3. Leave me alone.
    So far they have 2 F’s and a D…

    Good stuff, Grouchy. They originally furloughed 800K and now Hagel is bringing back half of them – in just one branch. Yep, we’ve got waste and fraud all covered up!

    From what I’ve seen, the people are catching on that we have a lot more government workers than we need and they’re sick of it.. Every story I see has comments to that effect. At some point this and the ACA debacle will be O’s downfall.

    • As the Chinese curse goes, “May you live in interesting times~!”,,, And even Steamboat Willie had a pertinent remark,,”Ain’t we got FUN~!~?”

      The real hard question remains, “Will the Obamafone lady give up her phone and go to work to earn it???” And all her chillun likewise~!

    • Kathy, Hagel HAD to bring back those workers according to federal law. You see….just before the shutdown, the House passed, and the Senate passed, and the Boy King signed…wait for it….a bill that fully funded all civilian workers on military bases, but Obama put them on furlough anyway, ILLEGALLY!

    “The real hard question remains, ‘Will the Obamafone lady give up her…'”
    About as real as, “Is there a Santa Claus?”

    Good post GF. The author makes a real solid point–that so far the shutdown hasn’t affected me or most people I know in our daily lives, and most can sit back and laugh at the childishness of the pols holding their breath until they turn blue posturing.
    But the sheer audacity and gall of them shutting down our National Treasures, memorials, peoples homes, and even THE OCEAN makes it hard to control our outrage and contempt.
    This will NOT have a pretty ending.

    Good post Grouchy. None of this would be real, or last long, if we actually had a media.

    Even LIV’s know this is bullshit orchestrated by the WH.
