Video: Paul Ryan Warns of “the Most Predictable Crisis We’ve Ever Had in this Country”

House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan of Wisconsin released this video ahead of next week’s FY2013 budget proposal, and judging from Ryan’s sober tone, it’s another serious attempt to set the ship of state on the path to prosperity, and away from the whirlpool of debt that threatens to suck us all under.

Transcript:

You know, I was here — in Congress — in 2008 when we had the economic crisis. It was a terrible time. Millions of people lost their jobs. Trillions of dollars of wealth: gone.

That crisis caught us by surprise.

Let me ask you a question: what if your President, your Senator and your Congressman knew it was coming? What if they knew when it was going to happen, why it was going to happen and more importantly, what if they knew what they needed to do to stop it from happening and they had the time to stop it? But they chose to do nothing about it, because it wasn’t good politics?

What would you think of that person? It would be immoral.

(Whoever could he be talking about?)

This coming debt crisis is the most predictable crisis we’ve ever had in this country. And look what’s happening.

This is why we’re acting. This is why we’re leading. This is why we’re proposing – and passing out of the House – a budget to fix this problem: so we can save our country for ourselves and our children’s future.

Of course, the  reaction of the Democrats to another serious Republican proposal will be hysterics and rabid demagoguery.

Sunshine State Sarah says:

This is why the Left is so desperate to create distractions – to make this election about class warfare through the “Occupy” movement, getting a Georgetown law student/liberal activist to grossly exaggerate the cost of contraception to spark a “War on Women.” They know they have committed a gross malfeasance of duty, and that there is simply no way to explain away these numbers.

My prediction: over the next few months, we will see an endless parade of ridiculousness from the Left, as they attempt to stir up one false controversy after another, to dig up new strawmen to blame, new victims who will plead for mercy, claiming their only hope for relief is rescue by Uncle Sam’s checkbook.

Because Democrats don’t care about the country – they care about raw power – how to gain it, how to keep it.

The only way to save the country is to defeat them.

Obama Pal, Bill Ayers: ‘Revolution’ Needed To Stop ‘White Supremacy’

Huh!

Breitbart TV has released yet another damaging video that shows one of Obama’s radical buddies talking about “white supremacy”. Video here.

In answer to an interviewer’s question about the white racist power structure, Ayers, replied:

“I mean, I think the people who practice white supremacy and who benefit from it are going to have to be stopped. And I think that’s a huge undertaking and I think it takes a revolution.”

It sorta fits in with the Derrick Bell, Louis Farrakhan, Jeremiah Wright Marxist CRT world view that some would argue our current President shares.

But wait – “Bill Ayers was just someone from Obama’s neighborhood, with whom he occasionally crossed paths, and who did despicable things when Obama was only eight years old. Why does it matter what Bill Ayers says. That’s just guilt by association!”, the Media Matters/Fight the Smears/Attack Watch argument goes.

Because the American people would rightly reject a Presidential candidate who was close family friends with an unrepentant domestic terrorist, and “small c communist”.

Never mind the fact that his political career was launched in Bill Ayers’ living room. Never mind the fact that they served on two boards together, The Woods Fund, and The Annenberg Project (where they funneled money to radical, left wing projects)…Never mind the fact that it’s now almost beyond dispute that Ayers  wrote Obama’s book, Dreams From My Father.

When was Obama ever “family friends” with the unrepentant terrorist?

Who ever said that?

How about …the unrepentant terrorist, himself, shortly after the 2008 election, as the Chicago Tribune reported:

In a new afterword to his 2001 book, Bill Ayers, former leader of the 1960s radical group Weather Underground, describes President-elect Barack Obama as a “family friend” and denies he wished his group had set off more bombs in the 1960s.

Ayers, a professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago, adds few new details about his relationship with Obama in the afterword to Fugitive Days: Memoirs of an Anti-War Activist. The book is being reissued this month.

“We had served together on the board of a foundation, knew one another as neighbors and family friends

But right-wing commentators tried to use those connections to smear Obama, he says.

Within 24 hours, Ayers was furiously back-peddling, adjusting his story to something more in line with what the Obama camp had been saying all year:

“I’m talking there about the fact that I became an issue unwittingly and unwillingly in the campaign and I decided that I didn’t want to answer any of it at that moment because it was such a profoundly dishonest narrative, but…I’m describing there, uh, how the blogosphere characterized the relationship. I would say…uh…really that we knew each other in a professional way, uh, again, on the same level as thousands of other people … uh, and I am a guy from around the neighborhood, incidentally.”

It must have been very painful for Ayers to have to disavow their friendship because he couldn’t resist that little jab at Obama, there – uh, and I am a guy from around the neighborhood, incidentally.”  Which is exactly how his craven former friend had described their acquaintance to inquiring reporters.

I think we can all admit it, now, right?  Bill and Bernardine were close enough to the Obamas that they were trusted to babysit the Obama girls.

After all, they hold the same poisonous, Marxist, revolutionary, CRT world view.

Dig it.

Welfare Queen, Sandra Fluke, Frolics In Spain and Italy

Gateway Pundit flagged some tweets from Fluke and her BF which shared the fun-loving couple’s pix of themselves,  living it up in Spain and Italy.

It was a lovely getaway for the women’s rights activist and her rich socialist boyfriend.

What a brave woman. How does she manage it all?

Brooks Bayne has much more on Sandra and her very rich boyfriend.

I don’t begrudge a person who has the  money to travel the world. We would all love to do that.   But what kind of woman launches a media campaign to force a Catholic university to offer birth control coverage against its will, (so women like herself can better afford their birth control needs) when she can obviously afford to go to an expensive school, and expensive vacations in Europe?

The American Spectator’s Jed Babbin, answers that question:

Sandra Fluke is the model Welfare Queen for the 21st Century. Upper middle class to start, going to a very expensive (and very liberal law) school on scholarship, and now (as we know from news reports) a tool of the White House media shop. She won’t have kids like the old-style welfare queens. Instead, she will first absorb all the government benefits she can while in school, and then work for a liberal law firm or political organization as a political activist. Or she may become another trusted lieutenant of Eric Holder at Justice. She is a product of the American version of the cradle-through-career indoctrination and career of the old Soviet Komsomol.

Welfare Queen Fluke will never produce anything of value to society. She will fit easily into the industry of regulation, bigger government, and reduced personal freedoms. She believes everything she wants — birth control, abortion, whatever — is an entitlement for which the government must pay. The welfare queens of the 1980s were small-timers. Welfare Queen Fluke and her ilk are an existential threat to fiscal responsibility. Just think about how many thousands of them are graduating this year to enter government jobs or political campaigns. They will be spreading their ideas to all within hearing.

Video: Obama Asks What’s Next? Let’s Make Sure We Don’t Find Out

Video created by Bullet People:

On president Obama’s YouTube page the video “The Story of Us: Five Years Ago Today” ends with the question “What’s next?” They don’t seem to get the irony of asking “What’s next?”
